Coinbase COO Emily Choi, Chief Product Officer Surojit Chatterjee, and Chief HR Officer L. J. Brock were the victims of a call to fire for “executing plans and ideas that led to questionable results and negative numbers.” The author listed eight of their shortcomings in detail. Among them, the unsuccessful Coinbase NFT platform, cancellation job offers to new hires, mismanagement, toxic workplace creation, and apathy. Petition completed:

“We hope to find people with experience in the crypto space who can more responsibly run such a company.”

Among other things, he tells petitioners that “our culture is to praise in public and criticize in private.” Armstrong also said he was surprised that he was not on the list of petitioner executives who should be fired and suggested that unhappy employees are the ones who should leave their jobs.
