According to Business Insider, Coinbase Prime, a service for institutional investors, has attracted the first hedge fund with assets worth $20 billion. The Coinbase team is also working to attract other large hedge funds to its platform.
Business Insider also reported that Coinbase plans to create a service for prime brokerage on Wall Street, which would help institutional investors carry out cryptocurrency transactions. The prime brokerage service provides hedge funds with a wide range of operational services, thereby helping companies to focus exclusively on the investment strategies.
