Cryptocurrencies and crypto-related companies, such as Voyager Digital Ltd. (CSE:VYGR)(OTC:VYGVF), Mogo Inc. (TSX:MOGO)(NASDAQ:MOGO), Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:RIOT), and Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA) have become some of the hottest investment opportunities of the year. However, soon investors may even be able to invest in companies that allow you to buy Bitcoin, like Coinbase. Another up and coming company that could be similar to Coinbase is TechX Technologies Inc.’s (CSE:TECX)(OTC:LLNKF)(FRA:C0B:FF) Catalx.io.
Coinbase just announced plans to go public through a direct listing, which allows companies to “skip the expensive investment bankers and their fees and simply list the stock on an exchange. The current owners of the company convert their shares to stock, and then investors can buy shares on the exchange.” The company, valued at about $100 billion in private secondary trading, operates as an online exchange, allowing retail investors to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. It also offers a trading platform, Coinbase Pro that allow you to view digital currencies technically, as well as a wallet service and a Coinbase debit card.
In addition, according to The Hustle, some of Coinbase’s key strengths include:
– “Huge industry growth: The market cap of crypto assets went from $500m in 2012 to $782B by 2020 — 150% growth per year.
– Rapid revenue increase: Coinbase more than doubled its revenue in 2020 to ~$1.3B. There are 43m retail users, mostly from word-of-mouth marketing.
– Steady profitability: Unlike many high growth tech companies, Coinbase has been largely profitable in recent years — ending 2020 with $322m in net income.”
Again, another up and coming company that could be similar to Coinbase is TechX Technologies Inc.’s (CSE:TECX)(OTC:LLNKF)(FRA:C0B:FF) Catalx.io.
