Coinbase is basically chief exchange platform for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It has shown unblemished success in the initial years of blockchain. This means that the assessment of $8 million generated about $1billion revenue in the previous year.

Although the Facebook has not clearly expressed its moves and it goals in blockchain as yet, but the far reaching effects are evident in this social network. By viewing at the prosperity it can be said that with the attainment of Coinbase, Facebook will make a vast squelch in the market that has its wings ready to take a flight.
