Intel is an American multinational corporation that has had a history since 1968. The firm has revealed its investment in Coinbase (COIN), a crypto exchange platform.

According to the article from Barron’s on Friday, the tech-giant Intel has recently purchased shares of Coinbase, a global cryptocurrency-exchange. Intel holds about 3,014 of Coinbase as per the disclosed statement at the end of Quarter 2, 2021.

Moreover, the statement did not specify the holdings of shares in the first quarter. Following the direct listing in Nasdaq, Coinbase shares took place to trade publicly in April. Although the Coinbase shares are small, Intel was required to reveal it to the Securities and Exchange Commission as it holds more than $100 million in publicly traded investments.
