Chip Giant Intel Owns Coinbase Shares: Report
Santa Clara, Calif.-based company appears to have purchased the shares in its Q2 ending June 26.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company appears to have purchased the shares during its Q2 ending June 26, according to the story, which noted that Intel didn't report owning shares prior to then.
Coinbase started trading publicly via a direct listing in April. Intel could have purchased the shares before then, as Barron's noted that companies going public must only report stakes in themselves of at least 5%.
Based on Coinbase's share price at the time of publication, the Intel stake would amount to a little under $800,000.
Intel had to report the shares because it owns over $100 million in publicly traded investments, Barron's reported.
Coinbase reported strong second-quarter results on Tuesday, although it warned that customer activity would slow in the third quarter.
