Institutions Are Reportedly Moving Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars In Crypto To Coinbase On A Weekly Basis


Coinbase was recently in the news when the exchange said that it was able to stop an attack from a highly skilled hacker.

In a new blog post, Coinbase said that the hacker began sending emails to more than 12 of its employees back in May.

The Daily Hodl noted not too long ago that the emails seemed to be from Gregory Harris – a research grants administrator at the University of Cambridge.

In just a few hours, Coinbase Security detected and blocked the attack.

Institutional money is flowing into Coinbase's custody platform

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong just stated that institutional players are depositing huge amounts of crypto into the company’s custody platform.

He posted a new tweet in which he was addressing the company’s acquisition of the crypto platform Xapo and he highlighted the fact that institutional customers send between $200 to $400 million in crypto to Coinbase Custody on a weekly basis.

Coinbase said that it’s making huge efforts to bring billions of dollars coming from Wall Street into Bitcoin and crypto back in 2018.

This is why they launched Coinbase Custody and its OTC trading desk.

Vice president and general manager Adam White talked about the company’s master plan for institutions in an interview with CNBC.

“We think this can unlock $10 billion of institutional investor money sitting on the sideline. We’re seeing a rapid increase in attention awareness and adoption in the cryptocurrency market.”

Crypto whales buy the dip on Coinbase

The crypto market has been extremely fluctuating these days.

It’s been just reported that a lot of investors with large Bitcoin holdings are buying the dip instead of selling their coins, said that latest data coming from Coinbase, according to Daily Hodl’s reports.

Crypto researcher Larry Cermak addressed all the data on Twitter. This is available via Coinbase’s new trading signals initiative.
