Coinbase goes live and saw a huge leap. So this is what the crypto market is doing. The crypto currency of Coinbase was founded in 2012 by Brian Armstrong and Fred Ersham. Brian is currently the CEO of Coinbase. The crypto currency has been awaited for long now and they finally made it to the charts. Their initial public offering was supposed to be $250 per share but it started even higher at $381 per share. Coinbase has seen a great appreciation of about 11% few minutes after going live. The crypto community is excited and analysts say that it will open way for mainstream crypto trading.

Brian Armstrong was applauded by numerous crypto giants. He received words of encouragement from Binance CEO and Binance itself. Brian also received widespread acknowledgements from analysts.

Fred Ersham who is also co-founder of the company has tweeted about how far they’ve come.

In a recent video from Coinbase’s YouTube channel Brian Armstrong talks about their journey. He expanded more on how hard it was to find a co-founder. So he had to work on the coin alone for a while. However, after he put out a prototype of the coin on reddit that Fred Ersham reached out to him. In the interview, Fred explained how he got obsessed with bitcoin after reading about it from a blog. However, this obsession was to finally realign with his impression of Brian’s idea on reddit.

Furthermore, Brian’s Initial Public Offering of Coinbase went extremely well. Such that his shares became valued at $20B in a few hours. This was the fastest anyone’s ever leaped in net worth. Warren Buffett doesn’t even fall close. In fact this took Brian t the top 100 list of the worlds richest people. He was valued at #3 in the world after Coinbase went public.[1]

The volume of Coinbase currently is about $365 billion and the coin has about 35 million active users. According to CNN Business he had 40 million shares in the company. Which is 20% of the company’s shares. Which after the IPO became about $20B according to current value of $420 per share. However, Armstrong seems to be a low profiled person and did not immediately tweet about it. In a later interview with CNBC he revealed that regulation is the biggest threat to crypto currency and raised concerns. As a result, Brian asked for their company to be treated like any other crypto currency. So that there are no unfair taxations and monitoring just because they went public.
