  • Imagine if every payment in the world was as fast, cheap, and global as sending an email.
  • Imagine if anyone who had an idea for a product could have customers all over the world from day one.
  • Imagine if anyone with a smartphone had access to the the same financial services we enjoy in the developed world.

An open financial system can be a great equalizer and lift billions out of poverty while accelerating the pace of innovation around the world. This is the best way Coinbase team knows to change the world.
