The Coinbase Prime solution powered in collaboration with Coinbase Markets and Coinbase Custody exclusively developed and created to "provide essential tools and services that allow institutional investors trading in cryptocurrency", it will also offer both lending and margin financing products, OTC trading, algorithmic trading, market data, and research products to qualified clients, as per the sources.
The cryptocurrency market is expanding every day with new developments popping up from time to time. "Our new partnership will set the required standards that will bring peace of mind to digital asset investors, and provide tools and products to enable better integration with more traditional investment vehicles such as mutual funds".

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Adam White, the General Manager at Coinbase, told them in an interview that Coinbase would ensure that HFT firms would not receive any unfair advantages: "We are going to be thoughtful and deliberate in the way we do that, to make sure we don't disadvantage any market participant over another". All the new products were developed with an aim to satisfy investors' needs in crypto trading and investing. As a result, the product combines Coinbase's cryptocurrency security experience with third-party auditing and financial reporting validation, thus meeting the requirements of any other SEC-regulated broker dealer. There is a problem, there are very few regulated platforms, and they do not facilitate services for enterprises, hedge funds, or other important institutions. And based on what Coinbase has just announced, Coinbase Custody should be a pretty good answer to this problem.
Coinbase Markets will be an electronic marketplace that will be run from Chicago and will provide customers with a centralized source of liquidity for all investors.
