Despite this significant growth, some major COIN holders have continued to sell some of their Coinbase stock. This includes holders of “Shiba Inu”, “Quant Crypto”, “”, “LUNC Crypto”, “HEX Crypto”, “Hbar Crypto”, “FTM Crypto”, “Crypto YouTube”, “Compound Crypto”, and “Web 3.0 Stocks”.

Crypto and ARK Invest’s Portfolio Updates

In early June, Cathie Wood’s investment firm ARK Invest purchased another 400,000 shares of Coinbase stock, and since then, the company has refrained from any COIN transactions, according to their portfolio updates. This is in line with Wood’s opinion that Coinbase’s stock will surge alongside Bitcoin.

On June 19, ARK Invest’s CEO once again expressed her confidence that Bitcoin will reach $1 million per coin one day.
