Coinbase Commerce: A User-Controlled Payment Processor



Amy Yin talks about Coinbase Commerce, a user-controlled payment processor, and explains how Coinbase uses hierarchical deterministic wallets to separate the ability to spend funds and the ability to receive funds so that the merchant can always be in control of their financial destiny.


Amy Yin is a software engineer at Coinbase and was the first engineer hired for Coinbase Commerce, a non-custodial payment processor that allows merchants to accept cryptocurrencies. She is now building out a new team within the Coinbase consumer flagship product,, to help investors grow and diversify their portfolios.
