Crypto exchange Coinbase hires Barclays exec as head of institutional coverage

Crypto exchange Coinbase has welcomed a new member of its team.

Coinbase hired former Barclays executive Brett Tejpaul as the head of its institutional coverage. Tejpaul worked with Barclays for 17 years and had spanning roles in credit and commodities sales and digital innovations, The Block reported.

Tejpaul also served as the global head of sales, global head of credit and commodities, and head of digital. In an interview with The Block, he said that Coinbase could offer products and services beyond trading bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. He also admitted that he was impressed with the development in the crypto space.

“I am amazed at actually how much development has happened,” Tejpaul said.

“This isn’t about trading one thing. It is a platform that can make up a collection of products and services.”

He also added that Coinbase would continue its institutional business to leverage over-the-counter trading, custody and exchange services. However, it will take a broader approach to address the clients’ needs. In fact, it is looking for new deals.

“I think about what a stablecoin can do,” said Tejpaul. “I think about credit risk, settlement risk, speed of settlement, the cost to maintain old infrastructure. This can serve as a precursor of broader adoption and the trading of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.”

However, it remains unclear whether Coinbase could build around stablecoins as it also didn’t provide specific details. At present, the exchange offers USD Coin (USDC) trading pairs and is a member of the consortium that manages the stablecoin.

Meanwhile, web-scale blockchain Solana has partnered with Terra to bring the decentralized stablecoin to its ecosystem. The two are planning to build a high-speed token bridge to make it possible.

“Together we’re building a new high-speed token bridge that facilitates the transfer of Terra stablecoins into Solana’s dapp ecosystem,” Solana wrote.

“Terra’s tokens will be the first stablecoins on the Solana network. By bringing stablecoins onto our network, we aim to dramatically expand the design space for developers, opening the door to novel applications that require price-stable payments. Similarly, and by the same token, we hope to support Terra’s expansion by creating a seamless gateway to our developer community.”

Becareful how and where u invest your funds. Binary options involve predicting the movements of commodity, asset or index prices over a short time. Although they may be a legitimate financial product with many licensed firms trading in them, binary options are speculative, high risk products that are almost impossible to predict, even for professionals. There are groups of scammers who use binary options to steal your money.
I would like to drop off few words about my negative and teaching experience with RB Options company. Like many others, I was contacted by the broker in 2019, and despite the fact I didn't have any knowledge about financial markets, got convinced by Peter Oaks, that I'll have all his assistance in order to make successful trades. Alright, sounds good, why not to try?
After putting a large amount on my account, ive watched how my balance would go higher and higher. Ofcourse seeing this proof of how im good at it, my manager Peter made me invest more over 35,000 Euro. After a couple weeks of such magnificent trading, my account ended up over 95,000 Euro. An excellent opportunity to file a withdraw, no? No!! They released only 12,000 in order to trick me invest more 100,000. I didnt have such money at the moment and I was put on hold. Weeks after nobody would even answer my calls or my emails. It became very clear, that Ive become a victim of a huge and shameless scam. Time passed by and I was growing disappointed and very angry with my own naive.
I had paid Birman Law 10% of my principle loss with nothing to show for it, I think the algorithm of these programs are designed for us to lose money in some way. If you flushed your money down the toilet with a binary broker then just learn your lesson, it took me 3 months to figure out how to get my money back after made failed attempts; I contacted several lawyers but it was all waste of time and money, they couldn't render an inch of help. I later came across a certified binary options recovery expert through a family member , I was able to hire him to recover my money within 15days from the brokers(RB options), he was able to retrieve my funds successfully . If you have found yourself in same situation as me you can contact the expert on '''instantfundsrecovery (A T ) protonml (cm)" just in case you find yourself in same situation; I can assure he would be able to help you just as he helped me. Be cautious of where and how you invest
