Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

There are many metrics to measure the success of a company. There are some that might look to a share price and others might point to market capitalization as an indication that a company is growing. Others might suggest that a company that is truly expanding aggressively is also hiring aggressively. Either way, it appears that Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN) is one of the most popular employers on Linkedin, one of the largest employment services in the world.

The networking platform is extremely popular and boasts over 600 million registered members in 200 countries. Linkedin recently published a list indicating which companies want to work at the most. The list is organized by many various editors and data scientists and takes into consideration companies that Americans are interested in working at—and not just saying that they are interested in working at.

One of the most successful cryptocurrency-related companies in the world is Coinbase, which appeared on the list. One reason that Coinbase’s appearance on the list is significant is because the company appeared on the list above JPMorgan Chase, which is one of the most well-known financial institutions in the world.

Coinbase is one of the most well-known companies in the space and is already valued in the billions. There are some that argue that it is the most recognizable cryptocurrency company in the world, and it was even featured in the opening credits of the hit HBO show Silicon Valley. The company landed at the 35th spot on the list, nine spots above JPMorgan Chase, which snagged the No. 44 spot.

Other companies on the list include some of the most well-known tech companies in the world, including Alphabet, Facebook, Amazon, and more. The list also pointed out that employees can opt to be paid partially or entirely in Bitcoin, as well.
