Coinbase accused of serious insider trading after recent token listing announcement

Recently, Coinbase announced a list of 50 different tokens that they plan to list in 2022. The company said that the goal with this was to maintain transparency with users and prevent pump and dump schemes. However, the surprising fact was that most of these coins were not very popular. There were a lot of small tokens that were not very liquid and had even less than a $1B market cap. This, combined with the fact that before the announcement, large purchases were made in a lot of these tokens, Coinbase is accused of serious insider trading.

Coinbase accused of serious insider trading: Some data

Twitter users started finding out on-chain data on the tokens on the list, and a lot of shady stuff was happening. Alan made a comment that someone from Coinbase made a purchase of $10,000, and it’s now worth more than $612k. Well, one cannot say with 100% certainty that the buyer was a Coinbase insider. However, the chances are high because of the timing of the entire thing.

Another popular Twitter influencer Cobie found that an ETH address was buying thousands of dollars of the tokens only present in the Coinbase list. Now that makes it even clearer that Coinbase might be involved in this.

If this happened for just one token on the list, we could have overlooked it as a coincidence. However, multiple purchases of these small illiquid tokens, which most people have hardly heard about, are serious. Coinbase might not even list them, but if their goal was insider trading, it has been a success for now. Let’s see if the authorities take any steps against Coinbase or at least investigate the matter. We don’t expect much from the SEC, so you never know.
