Coinbase recently made headlines when it’s been revealed that the reports coming from the crypto exchange are looking great and more investors are coming to the crypto market.

The crypto exchange revealed that it seems that people are pouring their stimulus of $1,200 into Coinbase.

US Treasury Dept. is sending coronavirus stimulus payments to eligible US residents, but it seems that some of the recipients are sending the money straight to the crypto portfolio.

Coinbase makes a massive move for crypto

It’s been revealed that Coinbase decided to hire Barclays exec Brett Tejpaul to head its institutional coverage group, which has been built to focus exclusively on the needs of institutional clients.

Institutional clients are vital for the crypto space, and their power can bring crypto mass adoption closer.

The new hire is highlighting the exchange’s efforts to make a massive push into the institutional market – Coinbase is targeting about $10 billion in big money that’s currently sitting on the sidelines.

The next phase of Coinbase’s institutional strategy

Via a new blog post, Coinbase’s chief operating officer Emilie Choi said that Tejpaul joins the leading crypto company as it focuses on better products and services targeting its institutional customers.

“A theme in Brett’s career has been building new kinds of businesses within traditional finance — a great fit for this particular role where he’ll be making connections between finance 1.0 and the cryptoeconomy…” according to the info coming from the blog post.

“Brett joins Coinbase at a time when we’ve never been better positioned to serve institutional and professional investors.”

Other than this, the crypto market is looking great today, with Bitcoin priced above $7,000 and most digital assets trading in the green. BTC’s halving is on its way and this is expected to trigger massive price moves.
