About Coinbase

Coinbase is an online platform that allows merchants, consumers, and traders to transact with digital currency. It allows its users to create their own bitcoin wallets and start buying or selling bitcoins by connecting with their bank accounts. In addition, it provides a series of merchant payment processing systems and tools that support many highly-trafficked websites on the internet. Coinbase was launched in 2012 with a mission to create an open financial system for the world. It is operated from San Francisco, California.

The seed round

According to the founder:

Adam Draper, one of our first seed investors, forwarded me this email from five years ago when we first met, with the attached pitch deck. What a great reminder of just how far we’ve come.

Hi Adam,

We don’t have a deck but here are my slides from demo day (please keep confidential). Tim Draper invested in xxxxxxx right? Didn’t realize the connection when we met. We have $320k committed already and will close it at $1M for this round. What can I do to help you make a decision to invest in Coinbase? (happy to meet in person or chat by phone)

Great presentation at demo day, it was also great to meet you. I am interested in the market you are going after and want to learn some more. Can you send me a deck if you have one?

Just some background on me, I have invested in about a dozen startups including Path, Airtime and Mino Monsters.thanks,
Great things start from humble beginnings. Most of what you see around you started as nothing more than a simple idea and a crude prototype. It’ll take 5 to 10 years to turn it an “overnight success”, with dozens of setbacks and course corrections along the way. So pick something you’re passionate about and get started.
