Since Elon Musk took over the reins of Twitter, now X, this former bluebird has been undergoing a series of major transformations. With a view to making X an “all-in-one application”, a newly-announced collaboration with Coinbase is laying the foundations for a revolution in job posting.

Coinbase et X ou Twitter font une alliance

Coinbase and Twitter join forces to reinvent the crypto job opportunities landscape

In his quest to transform X into a versatile platform on a par with WeChat, Elon Musk, already behind such exceptional projects as Tesla and SpaceX, continues to reinvent the social networking app.

On August 29, a decisive moment was announced: Coinbase and X joined forces in a far-reaching collaboration, with the ambition of revolutionizing the field of crypto employment.

This strategic alliance will enable Coinbase to publish crypto-related job offers directly on its X profile. So, as users scroll through their X feed on various devices, job offers will appear seamlessly on Coinbase’s profile. This foray into the recruitment arena could elevate X as a serious competitor to LinkedIn, the benchmark in professional networking.

X: An “all-in-one application”

The integration of job opportunities marks another step towards realizing Elon Musk’s vision of X as an “all-in-one app”. Since acquiring the platform in November 2022, Musk has revealed vast plans for the former bluebird.

The tech mogul aspires to channel half of the world’s financial activity through X. In line with this ambition, Musk also plans to integrate debit card payments and connected bank accounts, borrowing a similar strategy to PayPal and drawing inspiration from China’s versatile WeChat model.

The partnership between Coinbase and X not only promises a revolution in the crypto job market, it also paves the way for broader horizons.

This first step positions X as a hub for employers and jobseekers, marking social media as a new employment frontier. An exciting development that’s poised to redefine the rules of the game for professionals in the cryptosphere and beyond.
