Coinbase News

Founded in 2012, Coinbase — named after the Bitcoin (BTC) coinbase transaction that rewards miners for validating blocks — is one of the oldest, largest cryptocurrency exchanges, having supported tens of millions of users since its launch. 

Coinbase offers a range of services including custodial wallets with secure buying, selling and storage of cryptocurrencies; advanced trading and exchange services via Coinbase Pro; and USD Coin (USDC), a stablecoin backed by United States dollar reserves that is built on the Ethereum ERC-20 token standard, offering the advantages of cryptocurrencies without the price volatility. 

Coinbase has been a popular choice for newcomers seeking to gain exposure to the burgeoning cryptocurrency space.
