Binance stalled listing Coinbase’s Stock due to “market volatility” and all traders that wanted to buy the $COIN token will have to wait until the volatility cools off so let’s read more in our latest Coinbase stock news.
A few hours after announcing it will offer a tokenized version of Coinbase stocks for trading, the major crypto exchange Binance stalled the listing because of market volatility. Stock tokens allow investors to purchase fractions of the share without a commission while getting dividends. Unlike the actual stockholders, the investors in token stocks have no voting rights in the company.
On the other hand, Binance was already set to list the Coinbase Stock Token to be backed by actual Coinbase stock $COIN which began selling publicly today on Nasdaq. However, when new stock is added, the price fluctuates shortly after the direct listing as the public figures out what the exchange is actually worth.
$COIN’s reference price was set at $250 but then debuted 52% higher to $381. It then climbed as high as $424 but dropped later to $313. The 15%-20% swings are a typical movement on the market but they are not as common to stocks-well at least to the established ones. Binance will likely allow trading of the stock soon but we have to wait out until the volatility settles.
Also, When Coinbase goes public, the list of people eligible to cash in will be longer than expected which is thanks to a recent decision by the company to make the giveaway. Coinbase will award 100 shares to its 1700 employees across the world and the giveaway means that every full-time employee at the company is poised to become $25K richer based on the reference prices that were set by NASDAQ.
As reported, Coinbase made its money off transaction fees on the exchange since, in Q1 alone, the exchange made a profit of $800 million and $1.8 billion in revenue which is more than all of 2020. If the market is to stagnate or crash as it did back in 2018, it could send the price of the Coinbase stock down with it. This is one of the reasons why some analysts like David Trainer from New Constructs, believe that Coinbase’s stock is overvalued at the moment. Whether the link between the crypto world and the stocks will pay off for the shareholders, remains to be seen.
