Less than 48 hours after one cryptocurrency exchange announced it would move its U.S. headquarters to Miami, another said it, too, is creating a Miami presence.

eToro, the world’s second-largest exchange by number of weekly visitors, announced it had begun scouting office space for a 50-person U.S. hub that will share duties with its current U.S. location in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The announcement by eToro follows the news that top 15 exchange Blockchain.com will be moving its U.S. headquarters from New York to Miami, with plans to create 300 jobs over the next 18 months.

And it comes on the day about 15,000 crypto aficionados gathered at the Mana Wynwood convention space to attend Bitcoin2021, billed as the world’s largest-ever Bitcoin conference.

“Following these trends, we decided to leverage this great phenomenon and join the city by opening an office in the Miami area,” Hirsch said.
