Differences between Investing vs Trading

Coinbase is one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges. Its parent company, Coinbase Global, Inc., was established in June 2012, with the remit of creating a centralised portal for individuals to buy, sell and store cryptocurrency. It’s long been the most popular cryptocurrency exchange in the US by trading volumes. However, it’s not been immune from the volatility in the crypto markets, with the company laying off almost a fifth of its workforce in the summer of 2022 due to the unprecedented crypto downturn.

They broker exchanges of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other digital assets with fiat currencies in 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide. Coinbase has masterminded a string of crypto-focused products, including the creation of the USD Coin – a stablecoin, allowing users to deposit fiat US dollars in exchange for USD Coin that’s pegged to the value of fiat US dollars.

Founded: June 2012, San Francisco, California, USA
Founders: Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam
Headquarters: Fully remote company

The history of the Coinbase share price is somewhat brief. That’s because Coinbase only opted to become a publicly listed company in April 2021. Coinbase launched a direct stock listing on the Nasdaq exchange, with the price of Coinbase shares reaching highs of $328 per share after the first day of trading.

The Coinbase share price then seemed to fall and stabilise around $225 per share, before peaking at an all-time high of $342 per share in November 2021. It’s been one-way traffic downwards ever since, with the bearish cryptocurrency markets causing Coinbase shares to plummet to just $58 per share by July 2022.

Did you know? You can trade the fluctuations of the Coinbase share price without having to physically purchase shares in the popular cryptocurrency exchange. With contract for difference (CFD) trading, you can speculate on the Coinbase share price, giving you the ability to profit on falling prices as well as rising prices too. That’s because CFDs at Skilling allow you to short (sell) the price and profit if the price of Coinbase shares continue to fall below your entry point.

CFD trading on stocks like Coinbase also offer leverage. This means you only need to deposit a fraction of the total value of your trade to obtain full market exposure. If you were to physically buy Coinbase shares you’d need to pay for them upfront in full.

FAQs

Are Coinbase shares a good investment?

+ -

There's no easy answer to this question - it depends on a number of factors, including your investment goals and risk tolerance. However, if you're looking for a potential high-growth investment, Coinbase shares could be worth considering. Coinbase is one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, and its user base has grown significantly in recent years. If demand for cryptocurrencies continues to increase, Coinbase could see strong growth in the future.

Of course, there are also risks to investing in Coinbase shares. Cryptocurrencies are still a relatively new and volatile asset class, so there's always the potential for sharp price swings. And as a regulated company, Coinbase is subject to changing regulations that could impact its business. So, ultimately, whether or not Coinbase shares are a good investment for you depends on your individual circumstances and investment goals. If you're willing to stomach the risks, they could be worth considering. However, if you're looking for a more stable investment, there may be better options out there.
