Crypto Company Leases HQ Office In Wynwood, With 300 High-Paid Employees

Blockchain.com has announced it has leased space for its headquarters office in Wynwood, and will bring hundreds of high-paying jobs here.

“Miami is a special place for builders and visionaries, and we’re proud to be a part of the movement,” said Peter Smith, the CEO of the company.

There will eventually be about 300 people employed in the new office, according to Bloomberg.

Blockchain.com originally relocated its headquarters to Miami last year, with around 100 employees working from offices in the Brickell area.

The company will  move into permanent space at the Cube Wynwd, which will be renamed the Blockchain.com Building.

Tricera Capital and Lndmrk Development own the building.

Blockchain.com will occupy the seventh and eighth floors, with a total of 22,000 square feet of space.

Bad timing as MiamiCoin and bitcoin are both tanking

Yeah, the mayor looks like an idiot now too after having pumped miamicoin for all those previous months. Bitcoin might hold above 10 to 20K though in the long run but MiamiCoin is definitely dead on arrival

Sell Sell get out of that Suckercoin while you’re still behind.

That crap is supposed to be a store of value, yet it has tanked during times of high inflation and global turmoil. Get out before there are no more greater fools to sell to.

I’m curious if their Brickell employees will decide to work remote. It’s a remote first company so I wonder how many of those 300 employees will actually live in Miami.

More high paying jobs for the actual tech people and not the Instagram crypto creeps! I hope we get more graduate programs to prepare locals for these jobs!

You don’t need graduate programs to prepare people for these jobs.

Of course you do. You can be an analyst with a Bachelors or one with a Master or PhD. All three can do the job but the higher training prepares you for better performance. Plus having a Bachelors nowadays is like having a high school diploma. Highly competitive graduate programs are the key. Miami needs more Master level and Doctoral level programs to prepare people for what’s coming, otherwise outsiders will move in and take those jobs.

I have a PhD in Finance from Columbia University and I have a high paying tech job in NYC, which I’ve been doing remotely from Miami for a year now. I will be applying to those new jobs in Miami because I want to stay here. So I agree that graduate programs are vital because the completion is coming to town and you can’t compete without ammunitions…

Don’t let NY know, or they’ll try and come after you for not paying your fair share of Democrat career politician cozy salaries…-I mean taxes.

Yep, more high paying jobs for outsiders to move into Miami and take. The loser locals don’t have the necessary high tech education for filling these positions

Locals also aren’t Asian. We do have a fair bit of Ashkenazi in South Florida, however. Maybe they’ll fill the jobs locally.

Ashkenazis are “Asian,” just not that kind. Nice stereotyping.

Because there’s no good engineering schools in south Florida. UF is probably the best in the state and even that school barely makes the top 50 for engineering nationwide. All that Miami has for locals are low quality coding boot camps so companies can only hire junior programmers at best from that pool and the rest have to be relocated from other states

I pity the Democrats for constantly going through this “damn if you do and damn if you don’t” scenario when trying to work on the other side of the Republican party. I remember when the Republicans labeled Obama the “Deporter-n-Chief” in their miserable attempt to gain more support from Hispanics in this country whom they despised. What a bunch of misfits.. smdh….

I feel ya. I wanted to be a pilot. But they won’t t hire me until I go to flight school. Then they said that even if I did, that I can’t more money than the local pilots make in whatever city I’d be flying to. Outrageous.

The whole building is a hideous cluster of windows and white vertical beams. There are plenty of decent buildings that can do away with “art” that ruins them.

Why would it have to be renamed? Miami Coin was always a pump and dump

I’m skeptical. Tech bros have traditionally leaned libertarian, but Big Tech has become awfully woke in the past 10 or so years.
