Coinbase is an online platform that allows merchants, consumers, and traders to transact with digital currency.

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.

Pantera Capital is an investment firm focused exclusively on Bitcoin, other digital currencies and companies in the space. Bitcoin is an entirely new thing – a “post-currency” ledger – that is borderless, secure, low-cost and which allows virtually instantaneous payment and transfer. The company believes that Bitcoin has the potential to transform the way people use money, and that it will do for payments what the Internet has done for communications and commerce.
Until 2014, Pantera focused on global macro hedge fund investments. The firm was founded in 2003 by Dan Morehead, who was chief financial officer and head of Macro Trading at Tiger Management. The firm has since shifted its investment advisory services to focus exclusively on Bitcoin, other digital currencies and companies in the space.
