The latest in Coinbase’s ecosystem
Coinbase is a publicly traded cryptocurrency company. Shares of the firm fell, impacted by the state of Bitcoin and the overall crypto market. However, in the last 24 hours, the price of BTC has exceeded $ 20,000. So this was supported by today’s market performance of crypto stocks. Currently, Coinbase shares are trading around $74. Meanwhile, there was another development that showed that Coinbase was preferred by large investors.
Koindeks.com As we reported, the decentralized organization MakerDAO (MKR), which manages stablecoin DAI, will move $ 1.6 billion of USD Coin (USDC) reserves to Coinbase in order to achieve a return of 1.5 percent. The community accepted Monday’s proposal to move the MakerDAO treasury to Coinbase’s custodian. 75 percent of the votes were in favor of this movement. The $1.6 billion represents one-third of MakerDAO’s treasury. This treasury is a reserve that allows users to deposit collateral in exchange for issuing the DAI stablecoin.
Known as MIP81, the proposal describes Coinbase as a “long-term partner” of Maker and an “established, respected and regulated company.” “This MIP allows us to receive up to 1.5 percent APY in USDC,” the proposal reads. Moreover, this allows Maker to optimize liquidity at zero cost. Apart from that, it provides extra security. Other than that, according to the proposal, Maker will not pay Coinbase any custodial price. If funds are to be held in Coinbase’s custody after a trial deadline expires at the end of 2022, the community will need to vote again for the extension.
