The meteoric price rally by bitcoin in 2017 has made a lot of people very rich, and perhaps no one more than the owners of the trading venues themselves. Coinbase, which was valued at around $1.6 billion less than a year ago, is now priced at $8 billion by its investors. 

The $8 Billion Unicorn

Coinbase Valuation Jumps From $1.6 Billion to as High as $8 BillionSan Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has reportedly seen its market valuation skyrocket to as high as $8 billion. To help put this figure into perspective, Nasdaq Inc., which operates the NASDAQ market and eight European stock exchanges, only has a market cap of less than $15 billion.

Last summer, before the bitcoin trading mania reached its peak around the end of 2017, Coinbase was priced by VC investors at an approximated $1.6 billion. Unsurprisingly, the incredible revenues that period, when the price of bitcoin was at its height, brought to cryptocurrency exchanges across the world made their owners reevaluate such low previous offers, as was recently reported in the case of Binance.

A massive growth in its value. Crypto currencies do lifts up everyone?
