Coinbase joins Internet Associationbr>
On Monday, March 16, Coinbase announced that it would join the Internet Association, which has gained outsized clout in Washington in the short time since its launch in 2012.
IA President and CEO Michael Beckerman said Coinbase’s interests match those of the association’s high-profile members, such as eBay, Google, and Netflix.
“The idea that an emerging internet technology would be discriminated against or couldn’t compete because of policy or regulatory issues, that is something all of our companies care about,” said Coinbase CEO Michael Beckerman.
Coinbase is a bitcoin wallet and exchange service headquartered in San Francisco California. The Internet Association is a United States political lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C., and formed by members of the Internet industry.
