Coinbase stock is not yet available to purchase on any exchange, but it’s expected to go public soon. Here’s what we know — and how to buy in when it launches.
What we know about the Coinbase IPO
Coinbase, a digital currency exchange, has submitted a confidential draft registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission indicating its intention to go public via a direct listing. The submission comes on the heels of a rally for bitcoin. Coinbase is a popular platform on which to buy and sale cryptocurrency. Crypto rallied by 12% recently to US$23,000 for the first time in its history.

How to buy shares in Coinbase when it goes public
- Compare share trading platforms. If you’re a beginner, look for a platform with low commissions, expert ratings and investment tools to track your portfolio. Narrow down top brands with our comparison table. Most importantly, you need to find a share trading platform that allows you to trade US-listed stocks.
- Open and fund your share trading account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and bank information. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
- Search for Coinbase. Find the stock by name or ticker symbol (this isn’t available for Coinbase yet). Do your research and confirm it’s a solid investment for your financial goals.
- Purchase now or later. Buy with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Coinbases reaches your desired price. To spread out your purchase, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
- Decide on how many to buy. Weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market’s ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Coinbase, depending on your share trading platform.
- Check-in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Coinbase. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights on directors and management that can affect your stock.
