Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong shared his views on the crypto industry in the United States (US), and the expected impact of his exchange from bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) during his Q4 earnings call last week.

“So in preparation for this launch, we won 8 of 11 spot bitcoin custody mandates from issuers, and as a result, Coinbase Custody now covers approximately 90 percent of the USD 36 billion in bitcoin ETF assets,” he said.

Armstrong said he has seen huge demand as bitcoin is now the second-largest commodity ETF in the US, surpassing silver.

“So across the industry, we have seen more than USD 4 billion in net inflows into spot bitcoin ETFs. Bitcoin ETFs are breaking records,” he explained.

“This is actually just the beginning. We are now starting to see some of these issuers apply for ethereum ETFs, for example. We were appointed as custodians in five of the eight ETF applications for ETH,” he said.

Armstrong also revealed Coinbase's main priority this year, namely driving revenue, especially growing its two largest revenue streams, trading fees and stablecoins.

“Our second priority is to continue to drive utility in crypto… Lastly, we will continue to push for regulatory clarity for the industry,” he added.

“What's even more important is that as every institution now starts holding crypto, the asset class will become a standard part of every diversified portfolio,” Armstrong added.
