Coinbase

Coinbase started as a simple bitcoin wallet web-app that got popular by offering 10USD worth of BTC to every nearly anonymous signup. The Coinbase exchange later split into basic trading (directly from wallet with high fees) and PRO trading platform that became widely popular among daytraders in the US. Coinbase Custody is a subservice offered by Coinbase to institutions that trade cryptocurrencies but do not have the in-house tech to store them. The information about pricing is not public but since Coinbase Custody was the first player in this part of the blockchain industry, it is understandable that professional traders reported the costs of custody to be “outrageous”. In spite of the popularity of the platform across multiple verticals, Coinbase keeps raising VC (Round F in December 2018). It is possible the funding is necessary for further acquisitions - Coinbase has acquired for instance the hybrid DEX Paradex or the platform Earn.com.
