Coinbase, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, has announced the addition of four new members to its Global Advisory Council. These accomplished individuals will provide strategic insights to Coinbase’s executive leadership team as the company navigates an evolving crypto landscape around the world.

Former U.S. officials to Advisory Council for Crypto Regulatory Guidance

The new members include Mark Esper, a former U.S. Secretary of Defense; Stephanie Murphy, a former U.S. representative and national security specialist; Frances Townsend, a former counterterrorism and homeland security advisor to President George W. Bush; and David Urban, a managing director at BRG Group and former chief of staff to former U.S. Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania.

With deep national security expertise, these four advisers will help the Council examine the potential consequences of regulatory uncertainty for crypto in the United States, including the long-term economic and national security impacts. They will also help the Council address the unique risk of the U.S. losing its leadership position across a wide variety of sectors that crypto and blockchain are influencing.
