Yet another LinkedIn executive leaves the company to join CoinBase...

Michael Li is now the latest high-profile hire for Coinbase.  Li served as LinkedIn's head of analytics and data science, but will now be known as CoinBase's VP of data.

"Blockchain technologies are being rapidly created and adopted, and Coinbase is driving this evolution. I’m excited by the opportunity to combine my passion about data and the endless possibilities of data innovations in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world." says Li.

Li will be joining another recently relocated LinkedIn executive Emilie Choi, who was head of corporate development at LinkedIn, and is now the VP of corporate and business development at CoinBase.

Earlier this year CoinBase also snatched up Amazon's general manager of Amazon Web Services, Tim Wagner - who is now VP of engineering at CoinBase.
