The COIN Trade(s)

The firm sold a total of 270,365 shares through its flagship ARK Innovation ETF ARKK, ARK Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW and Ark Fintech Innovation ETF ARKF on Monday. The transaction was valued at a whopping $68.71 million. On the same day, Coinbase shares closed 0.95% lower at $254.17.

Ark Invest’s decision to offload Coinbase shares came amid a bullish trend in the cryptocurrency market. On the same day, Bitcoin surged past the $70,000 mark, setting a new all-time high, while Ethereum also crossed the $4,000 mark.

Last week, Ark Invest sold Coinbase shares as Bitcoin approached a new all-time high near $69,000. The sale coincided with a surge in Coinbase’s stock price, attributed to rising Bitcoin values. Earlier, Coinbase experienced technical issues amid increased trading activity, prompting CEO Brian Armstrong to acknowledge exceeding traffic expectations.
