Intel invested in Coinbase Stock, having bought 3,014 shares, which has been listed on Nasdaq since April. Today those shares are worth 803,000, which is an increase of 5% over the original price.

The developer of computer processors, Intel Corp, detailed that it bought shares of the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase in its financial report for the second quarter of 2021. The total investment was close to 763,446 dollars, for the acquisition of 3,014 shares as of March 30th. June.

As reported by the Reuters news agency, Intel’s disbursement was made known as part of its report to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 

The exchange’s share purchase occurred in the second quarter of the year, which was also when Coinbase began its direct listing on the Nasdaq stock exchange. This early support, as well as the fact that it is a low figure for a company like Intel, account for what seems like a “symbolic” endorsement.

As of press time, Coinbase shares are trading at US$266.55 each, according to the Nasdaq official site. Therefore, today Intel’s investment would be equivalent to US$803,381. 

However, at the time of closing the quarterly report filed with the SEC, each share was trading at approximately US$253.

Coinbase had bumpy months since it went public

However, he also had bad news. In July, some of its investors sued the company for deceptive attitudes related to its arrival on the stock market. Specifically, the firm led by Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam is accused of resorting to the sale of bonds to acquire financing after opting for a direct listing on Nasdaq.

These decisions are contradictory since the direct listing implies the sale of shares without raising additional capital. Given this, the plaintiffs affirm that the exchange presented false documentation that omitted the need for a capital injection to continue its operations in the face of the constant increase in users.
