At least three cryptocurrency exchanges can now be accessed by Florida residents — the latest is a $5 billion London-based exchange now hiring for dozens of jobs in Miami.
Blockchain.com announced Tuesday it had received approval for a money transmitter license from the state, meaning Florida users can now legally buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on its platform.
“Blockchain.com has been [in cryptocurrency] since the beginning, and the reason is because customers trust us to be a reliable, safe, and secure provider of infrastructure for institutions all over the world,” said Blockchain CEO and co-founder Peter Smith in an interview.
Blockchain.com raised $300 million from investors in March. It is now hiring for dozens of Miami-based positions.
“While the Miami Movement is all about building a city that lasts forever and works for everyone, it has stretched far beyond Miami,” said Miami Mayor Francis Suarez in a statement. “I’m thrilled that our movement has encouraged tremendous innovation and investment in the entire state. I commend Blockchain.com for its continued hiring efforts and opening up its products so all 22 million Florida residents can now trade crypto, putting financial independence at our fingertips.”
