Coinbase announced that it will add an additional $300 million of investment at a valuation of over $8 billion to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

The Series E equity round is led by Tiger Global Management, with participation from Y Combinator Continuity, Wellington Management, Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain and others.

According to its blog post, Coinbase will use this financing to accelerate:

  • Global expansion;
  • Offering more crypto assets;
  • Utility applications for crypto — like the recently announced support for a stablecoin (USDC) on Coinbase and continued development of Coinbase Wallet;
  • Bringing institutional funds into crypto.
