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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
