Coinbase drawing in over a billion in revenue just the previous year shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone- for they have been the largest exchange of cryptocurrency in the States. They filed a couple of new documents last Wednesday- before they would be eligible for a public listing on the NASDAQ. This would allow investors a chance of getting in close to check in on the company which stands at the forefront of the cryptocurrency boom. With most of the prices soaring, Coinbase is gaining a massive stronghold in the market. This has led to quite a few institutional investors piling in to get a few stocks in the firm.
