Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase revealed that it has held bitcoin and other crypto assets on its balance sheet since its founding in 2012.

  • According to a blog post Thursday, the company plans to maintain its crypto exposure and aims to use that experience to assist other companies that wish to do the same.

  • The blog adds that Coinbase has executed “nine- and ten-figure trades” for some of the world’s largest institutions.

  • The news comes after major listed firms including Tesla and MicroStrategy have disclosed bitcoin treasury investments over recent months.

  • The disclosure also comes as Coinbase, which facilitated Tesla’s purchases, is preparing for a public listing in the U.S.
