Unifying Banks & Blockchains @Coinbase



Jim Posen provides an overview of blockchain protocols and discusses how Coinbase’s unified architecture for payment services abstracts away integration-specific logic from core transaction processing. He dives into the details of Coinbase’s Bitcoin, Ethereum, and US banking integrations and compares how they implement the generalized service interface.


Jim Posen is a tech lead at Coinbase and has spent his time there architecting and building many of its core back-end services. He has worked on a variety of systems including the data pipelines, compliance and fraud controls, and most recently has been rebuilding the payments infrastructure to support integrations with new blockchains and global banking partners.
