Coinbase’s Latest Acquisition
San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has announced today that it has acquired Earn.com (formerly known as 21 Inc).

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong said: “We’re going to be doubling down on the Earn business within Coinbase, as they have built a paid email product that is arguably one of the earliest practical blockchain applications to achieve meaningful traction.”
