Coinbase considering an IPO

posted 4 months ago
Coinbase Inc has initiated preparations for a stock market listing that could come as early as this year, making it the first major U.S. cryptocurrency exchange to go public, according to people familiar with the matter.

The listing would need the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) blessing. Were the securities watchdog to greenlight it, it would represent a landmark victory for cryptocurrency advocates vying for its endorsement.
