Coinbase has been making a lot of headlines this year, and the crypto exchange enters the spotlight again. Check out the latest achievement that they marked.
The Block Crypto notes that on May 10, the Coinbase app managed to top the US Apple App Store, a position that the crypto exchange had not been in since late 2017.
The online publication mentioned above notes that “According to data compiled by The Block Research, Coinbase broke top 10 charts in mid-April before reaching the #2 slot on April 14. This was the same day the crypto exchange became a publicly-traded company on NASDAQ.”
The notes also say that “The app dipped below the top 10 apps for a short period before climbing up on May 4, the same time the art auction house Sotheby’s partnered with Coinbase to accept bitcoin and ether for physical art payments.”
