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.
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.
