Recall that this is not the first time Cathie Wood is taking profits from Ark Invest’s Coinbase holdings.

A few days ago, Wood’s investment firm sold 135,152 Coinbase shares ($12 million) from one of its major exchange-traded funds (ETF), the Ark Innovation ETF. Notably, the sales happened as the Coinbase stock price briefly surpassed $90, surging from about $82 to as high as $90.9, as per data from TradingView.

Ark’s Relation With Coinbase

Before taking fresh profits from Ark’s Coinbase holdings, Wood has been actively accumulating the stock in multiple Ark funds. In March, Ark Invest set out on a purchasing binge, amassing over $18 million in shares across two of its exchange-traded funds. It reportedly has 353,000 shares spread over two funds. In February, the business acquired up to 213,519 shares across the same funds.

Undoubtedly, the amount of Coinbase holdings Ark Invest holds makes the firm a 3.8% stakeholder in the crypto exchange based on Nasdaq’s $15.1 billion valuation of Coinbase market capitalization.
