For a company that was founded in 2012 and has been the biggest bitcoin exchange since then, Coinbase owning just $130 million in bitcoin is straight up embarrassing.

Coinbase was founded on June 12, 2012

The price of 1 bitcoin: ~$5

They now own ~$130 million in bitcoin.
That is around 2,600 bitcoin.

In other words, if you bought $13,000 of bitcoin in June 2012 and held until now, you own more bitcoin than Coinbase.



@drbitcoinmd If you bought $13,000 of Bitcoin in June 2012 and held until now, you're literally insane for holding on to it through all those ridiculous surges and crashes.

Or you lost the wallet in July and just found it again.
