November sees COIN face 78% surge
As reported earlier, throughout November Coinbase’s shared (COIN) demonstrated a stunning 78% increase in price as it went up from $71.88 per share to $128.27, thus reaching the highest point since April last year so far.

At the time of this writing, COIN is trading at $133.76, rising by 7.25% within the last 24 hours.
