Just a few days ago, Coinbase, one of the crypto market’s best-known companies, held its initial public offering (IPO). This entails the sale of shares and the listing of the aforementioned company on a publicly-traded stock exchange. Companies often do this to usher in veritable cash flow that is then utilised to expand by building new products and enhancing the ones that are already available. Coinbase is therefore one of the first crypto companies to ever go public, but it’s recent endeavour may pave the way to numerous other crypto-based businesses taking similar steps.
It’s very likely that over the next few years, as crypto companies scale, there’ll be considerable opportunity to purchase crypto stock, some of which will likely be tradeable within blockchains as synthetic assets. This is exactly what Binance did for Coinbase’s $COIN ticker, but also for Tesla.
