Some of the capital will be devoted to mergers and acquisitions in the sector, Coinbase said in a statement.
Coinbase, the largest US-based cryptocurrency exchange and one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges, has announced plans to raise additional funds for its expansion.
In a press release share On Monday, Coinbase Global said its goal was to raise $ 1.5 billion through a private debt offering of senior notes due in 2028 and 2031.

The offer is only open to institutional buyers deemed qualified for the notes as required by the US Securities Act of 1933, Coinbase added. Investors are assured that the cryptocurrency company offers a full and unconditional guarantee to these ratings.
Coinbase’s plans for funding came to light just days after the exchange was told by the U.S. securities watchdog that it faced legal action if it launched its program. Lend. The company maintains that the SEC threat is surprising and unwarranted given that both sides have been “proactively” engaged for nearly six months regarding the program.
