Blockchain.com is among the 15 largest cryptocurrency exchanges by number of weekly visitors, according to CoinMarketCap.com.

Also headed to Miami:

• San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Okcoin with plans to hire 100 Miami-based employees for its new location in Brickell.

• Chicago-based private equity firm Thoma Bravo will open a Miami office before the end of 2021. The firm, with a total of 114 employees between its Chicago and San Francisco sites, plans to hire local talent.

• PJ Solomon, a Manhattan-headquartered investment bank, has established a new office in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

• Sweden-based Majority, which sells bundled digital banking, wire transfer and international calling services to immigrant communities in the U.S., has expanded to Miami, opening a customer “meet up” center focused on South Florida’s Cuban population.
