One of the major plans for Coinbase is to go forward to seal the interest of institutional investors.
An institutional investment would be able to pump the value of the markets and more than that it will also encourage massive sums of money to flow through exchanges that could offer investors the best deals.
A part of all this will also come from exchanges that have the ability to offer a higher security protocol and an overall better customer experience.
The team at Coinbase is currently focusing a lot on their efforts to ensure that the platform is suitable for both individual and institutional investors.
