Instead of mimicking Coinbase and going public through a direct listing, Kraken could choose the more traditional IPO method, explained
Coinbase is one of the veteran cryptocurrency exchanges. It was founded in June 2012 and since then allows its users to transact between FIAT and digital currencies. The company is based in San Francisco, USA.
Coinbase was established by Fred Ehrsam and Brian Armstrong, who’s also the current CEO. It has grown substantially since its launch, and it is currently the leading regulated US-based cryptocurrency exchange.
Apart from providing a platform for individuals, Coinbase also offers a solution for institutional investors. It’s called Coinbase Prime. The Prime platform offers more robust and complex trading tools, geared toward larger investors.
Besides, the company launched in 2018 a custody service, which provides its clients with an institutional-grade offline storage solution. It is also regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and operates as an independently capitalized entity.
It’s safe to say that Coinbase is working towards the establishment of an entire ecosystem where traders can purchase, store, and sell cryptocurrencies in a secure and regulated manner.
