As Coinbase prepares to go public, investors are wondering if they can buy Coinbase stock pre-IPO. Unfortunately, the answer is no.
Coinbase is not selling any shares prior to its IPO, which is expected to occur sometime in early 2021.
This means that the only way to own Coinbase stock prior to its IPO is to buy shares on the secondary market from investors who already own them. However, this can be difficult and expensive, as there is no guarantee that these investors will be willing to sell their shares.
Investors who are interested in owning Coinbase stock may want to wait until after the IPO to buy shares on the open market. This will likely be the easiest and most affordable way to own Coinbase stock.
