Cathie Wood-led money managing firm Ark Invest on Wednesday sold more shares in Coinbase Global Inc COIN even as the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange's stock continued to regain ground after reporting dismal third-quarter results earlier this month.
Ark Invest sold 92,395 shares — estimated to be worth $32 million — in Coinbase via the Ark Innovation ETF ARKK.
Two other Ark ETFs — the Ark Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW and the Ark Fintech Innovation ETF ARKF too own shares in Coinbase.
The three ETFs together held 5.66 million shares — worth $1.68 billion — in Coinbase ahead of Thursday’s trades.
Shares of the cryptocurrency exchange closed 1.29% higher at $346.52 a share on Wednesday. The stock has risen 5.56% so far this year.
The stock had plummeted 8% earlier this month after Coinbase reported dismal third-quarter numbers and said it is focused on long-term growth as it grows the cryptocurrency economy.
The company said Bitcoin BTC/USD was 19% of trading volume in the third quarter, compared to 24% in the second quarter. Ethereum ETH/USD was 22% of trading volume in the third quarter, compared to 26% in the second quarter.
