Brian Armstrong is very present in the latest crypto news over the past few days on our website. The CEO and founder of the US-based exchange Coinbase has recently confessed that Bitcoin is his “first love” in a series of tweets to commemorate the coin’s 10th birthday on January 3rd.
As Armstrong wrote while summing up his beginnings in the industry:
“Bitcoin is one of the most important inventions of all time and has launched a global movement. It’s awesome to see an entire ecosystem spring up around it, but Bitcoin is my first love.”
He also pointed out that Bitcoin is still the most popular asset both for the Coinbase customers as well as the long-time hodlers, tweeting about the future potential of BTC and its solid growth:
“I believe we’re still at the beginning. The white paper signaled the start of a movement and the full promise of Bitcoin is still yet to be realized.”
In addition to this, the Coinbase co-founder briefly recounted the story of how Bitcoin was founded, revealing that he first read Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper in 2010 and was thinking about it for the next six months.
Currently, Coinbase is the 30th largest crypto exchange in the world by its adjusted daily trade volume, seeing more than $85.4 million in trades on the day to press time.
