Coinbase Vice president for Communications, Rachel Horwitz, said in a statement that their firm is „always looking to acquire the best teams and technologies in the crypto spaces,” expressing satisfaction over the current merger.

 “Given the similarity of our product visions, we’re happy to be joining forces with Pete, who will become head of engineering for Toshi alongside Sid Coelho-Prabhu, Coinbase’s product lead for Toshi. In coming weeks, we’ll merge certain features of Cipher into Toshi,” she added.

The recent news of this acquisition is just one from a list of major announcements that were made by the company in a short period of time.
