On a mission to accelerate the world's transition to cryptocurrency, Crypto.com has chosen to establish its Australian headquarters in Melbourne, the nation’s leading tech city.
The Australian HQ will focus on collaboration with globally renowned Victorian universities to increase the company’s technical development capabilities.
Crypto.com is looking to attract, build and retain a highly skilled workforce in the sector, in order to build on its blockchain, applications and various systems needed to provide its services in Australia and globally.
Karl Mohan, Crypto.com General Manager, APAC says “Melbourne’s tech ecosystem is an ideal base for Crypto.com to continue to grow, develop innovative services and access world-class talent.”
Headquartered in Singapore with presence in more than 110 countries, the investment of Crypto.com sends strong signals that Melbourne is an ideal location in the Asia Pacific region to create a thriving tech eco-system that will see the transfer of technology and skills to Victoria.
Globally, the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry has grown from approximately $1 trillion in 2018 to $2.7 trillion in 2021.
Victoria is emerging as the location of choice for global companies in this space, with Melbourne being renowned for its thriving eco-system for blockchain and cryptocurrency companies.
