Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong reveals that the exchange is adding more cryptocurrencies to its coin roster in a new interview with CNBC, as he discusses why people should invest in the business. 

He explained that they are not linked to any one cryptocurrency as they are currently adding support for over 100 crypto assets, with more to come in the future.

You know we’re also kind of what you might call an indexed bet or a levered bet on the crypto space, more broadly because we’re kind of selling picks and shovels. We’re helping people access and use this to new technology, so I think we’re going to grow along with the crypto space.”

Coinbase already added eight new digital assets this year: ADA, Ethereum scaling solution Polygon (MATIC), layer-2 scaling solution Skale Network (SKL), decentralized exchange (DEX) SushiSwap (SUSHI), DEX aggregator 1inch, ENJ, peer-to-peer connectivity network NKN, and decentralized commerce and finance project Origin Protocol (OGN).
