Coinbase is a great example of an advanced company that realizes that without employees it would not have achieved such success, so the company decided to thank everyone in a truly magnificent way.
According to a Coinbase spokesperson, the company decided to donate 100 shares to each of 1,700 employees as a token of gratitude and celebration of the success of being listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
Coinbase will start trading on the Nasdaq today with a set reference price for COIN shares of $ 250, which means that each employee has a gift worth $ 25,000.
Verified sources have also stated that, this is a no-strings-attached grant and therefore it will be up to each employee how he will handle these shares and whether they will decide to sell them immediately after the official start of trading.
Coinbase is valued at $ 66.5 billion before the start of trading and based on a set reference price.
