Coinbase generated almost $2 billion in trading fees since the launch of the company in 2012. Let’s see more in the Coinbase news today.
The CEO Brian Armstrong explained at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit that the company is doing well over the years and he also told Vanity Fair that the technology has always been the major focus at Coinbase which is the reason why the company remained profitable. He added:
‘’Coinbase has been profitable since 2017 and has generated close to $2 billion in trading commissions since the company launched back in 2012. Most of these profits we’re plowing back into the business to create new products. I sort of think of us as the anti-unicorn unicorn […] I want Coinbase to be a company of repeatable innovation.”
Armstrong also noted that he does not know why the regulators’ reactions to the planned launch of Facebook’s Libra were extremely negative in the United States and he said that he would really like to see the US embracing the area of innovation by adding:
“There are a lot of people who are unbanked in the world, who are underbanked […] My hope is the U.S. embraces this kind of innovation, even if it comes from a company like Facebook that they’re not necessarily very happy with.”
Coinbase generated its profit despite being of the 21 remaining companies that are a part of the Libra Association which has been under scrutiny by lawmakers across the world for its potential to threaten the user privacy and regulatory rules. Libra lost more than seven high-profile participants including eBay, Visa, and Mastercard. Later, more companies decided to leave the crypto project and now its future is uncertain with all the regulatory and media scrutiny around it.
Armstrong previously criticized the US senators for asking Visa and Mastercard to leave the Libra Association and after the payment giants were apparently pressured into leaving by the US Senators Brian Schatz and Sherrod Brown. He noted that they can even be responsible for future of the project and he even said:
“Something feels very un-American about this. Two senators writing to Visa, Mastercard, and Stripe to ask them to withdraw from Libra.”
