Coinbase IPO: Crypto Goes Street


Coinbase is the talk of Wall Street [and main street – AND YOU & I], as the largest crypto platform in the U.S. goes public today, Wednesday. Today na today!!!

This is definitely a big deal for cryptocurrencies – to say the least. The company was created just over a decade ago with the genesis of bitcoin BTCUSD and is now in the midst of a moment that many in the industry have described as a tipping point. Coinbase’s users primarily deal in bitcoin and ethereum. The company reported last week that its revenue soared 847% in the first quarter to $1.8 billion, and that it now has 56 million verified users. HAMAZINGGG

Leeor Shimron, analyst at FundStrat Global Advisors, described the Coinbase listing as seminal. “Coinbase’s direct listing is a watershed moment for the crypto industry.” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives also said the listing is a reflection of the crypto’s mainstream evolution. He said “Coinbase is a foundational piece of the crypto ecosystem and is a barometer for the growing mainstream adoption of Bitcoin and crypto for the coming years in our opinion.”
