Coinbase Inc., one of the biggest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange operators, is expanding its European presence with a Dublin office as Brexit uncertainty continues to push companies to create contingency plans.

“The Dublin team will complement Coinbase operations in London and host a variety of new business-related functions,” the San Francisco-based company said in a blog post. London will remain the company’s European headquarters and handle international business outside, the U.K.-regulated firm said. Its European Union customers grew faster than any other market last year, the company added.
