Prominent cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase made immense news after it managed to get itself listed on Nasdaq. With an array of developments, the exchange managed to stay relevant and on top. Once again, the crypto platform has made it to the headlines after revealing that it intends to raise a whopping $1.5 billion through a debt offering.
Throughout the year, Coinbase was seen making the rounds on Twitter following its tiff with its own customers. Despite this, the crypto platform continued to jump on the progress train. Even though several platforms have come under the scrutiny of regulators, Coinbase has retained itself as the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States.
The Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] of the US did not spare anyone. Just last week, the SEC threatened the exchange. The SEC revealed that it wants to press legal charges over its latest crypto lending feature. While the fervency around this persists, the exchange went on to move to the next level.
