Coinbase is a wallet for storing, spending, buying and accepting Bitcoins. It also acts as a Bitcoin processor for many merchants and businesses (example; Expedia, Overstock.com, Dell), and is among the top Bitcoin exchanges. Coinbase became the blockchain industry’s first “unicorn” after it raised $100 million in August of 2017, valuing the company at $1.6 billion.

The company is based in San Francisco. Its initial offering was primarily restricted to the U.S. but it also services around 18 European countries.[1]

History

In August 2017, Coinbase introduced Toshi, its first mobile application for Ethereum, as the first external application outside of the main Coinbase wallet, trading platform, and the GDAX exchange.[2]
