August 11, 2020 Coinbase resigns from Blockchain Association

In a letter today, Coinbase announced that it will withdraw from blockchain advocacy and lobbying group Blockchain Association. Coinbase Chief of Staff and Counsel Hermine Wong will also resign from the groups Board of Directors. The letter cites the coalition’s “recent actions” as reason for the departure, and many suspect this is a reference to Binance.US joining the group.
