Coinbase Envisions an Open Financial System

Coinbase’s vision extends beyond simply trading digital currencies, with the stated goal of becoming the platform at the center of a revolutionary, "open financial system". Its core processes can be divided into five primary lines of business: Coinbase, Coinbase Pro (formerly GDAX), Custody, Wallet (formerly Toshi), and the Coinbase API. In the future, as the penetration of blockchain approaches critical mass and Coinbase’s vision becomes more of a reality, it will be interesting to see just how open the company can afford to be.
