Cryptocurrency company Coin Flip (based in Chicago, Illinois) is opening a first-of-its-kind firm it’s calling a “crypto experience center (CEC)” in the city of Tampa, Florida. Open seven days a week from 11 in the morning to eight at night, the center will allow members of the public to step in and explore the growing world of crypto and potentially get their questions answered.
Coin Flip Wants to Answer Your Crypto Questions
In addition, it also features what’s called the “innovation center” for employees. They can take advantage of the engineering hub the facility has to offer. Free events and educational seminars will be offered, while additional sources on how to trade safely and use crypto ATMs (the signature products of Coin Flip) will also be doled out to whoever steps inside.
Coin Flip CEO Ben Weiss stated in an interview:
Bringing to life this customer-facing experience is one of many groundbreaking moves on the horizon for Coin Flip. As the market continues to grow and use cases for cryptocurrency expand, the need for education and guidance is critical to the advancement of the industry, and we look forward to driving that momentum.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony occurred to celebrate the opening of the business. In attendance were the CTO of the company Rory Herriman; Craig Richard, the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council president and CEO; and Tampa mayor Jane Castor. Castor explained in a statement:
We are thrilled to officially welcome Coin Flip to Tampa and celebrate the grand opening of the crypto experience center. Innovation has been a key pillar for our city and opportunities are endless for businesses that want to call Tampa home. We look forward to supporting Coin Flip and its educational initiatives for our community, further demonstrating Tampa’s status as a hub for technology.
Rory Herriman was also quick to throw his two cents into the mix, commenting:
Coin Flip is securing its place at the forefront of the digital revolution with the opening of our crypto innovation and experience center. We’re certain that tapping into Tampa’s top talent pool will help our team engineer the tech of the future as we enter the next growth stage of our company. In our first year in Tampa, we aim to create more than 40 new jobs that will spearhead the development of new technologies in the blockchain and web3 space. By positioning our innovation team in the same city as our CEC, we are able to fulfill our mission of being a fully customer-centric technology company.
