Coinbase has received approval



Coinbase Global, the largest US cryptocurrency exchange, has received approval from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to list its shares on the Nasdaq, paving the way for what will be a landmark victory for cryptocurrency advocates.

The company, which plans to go public through a so-called direct listing, expects to list its shares on the Nasdaq under the ticker COIN on April 14.

In a direct listing, no shares are sold in advance, as is the case with an initial public offering (IPO). 

The company's share price is determined by orders coming into the stock exchange. Advocates argue it is a better way to price new stock rather than an IPO.

In a regulatory filing last month, Coinbase said its stock in the private market traded at a weighted average price of US$343.58 in the first quarter of 2021 through March 15, a nearly 13-fold jump in its valuation to around $68 billion in the space of a few months.

Congratulations Coinbase.

President Biden's Financial Team Will Clarify Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Regulations

  The  cryptocurrency market  is looking for a firm regulatory framework.  Governments around the world are trying to figure out whether bitcoin is a currency, a tradable commodity, a security on par with stocks and options, or a brand new asset class of its own.  Once they figure that one out, they'll have to ask the same questions about Ethereum, Tether, Ripple, and Cardano , and the list of major cryptocurrencies only grows longer over time.  Settling the thorny issues of legality, taxation, and trading rules will take time, adding to the uncertainty and volatility of the global crypto market. President Biden is putting together a team of financial leaders that should clarify the tricky cryptocurrency market in a hurry.  Three of Biden's top-level financial staff picks have a proven understanding of how blockchain and cryptocurrency assets actually work. The view from the top Let's start with our next U.S. Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen. In last week's written tes

The SafeMoon REVIEW

  The SafeMoon is deflationary and rewards the holders.  Every time a transaction has been made, a 10% fee is taken out from the seller, incentivizing people to hold instead of sell.  From that 10%, 5% is burned (causing deflation, the supply constantly shrinking) and the other 5% is split up and sent to all the holders wallets.  When you hold this coin, you will see your token quantity constantly growing.  The team is not anonymous and have been working non stop for this project, and constantly engages with the community in their Reddit  and Discord .  This token also has the highest amount of holders out of all the new deflationary tokens that have popped up recently. Enjoy!
