Media: Coinbase is negotiating the purchase of a Tagomi crypto-broker
According to some experts, Tagomi would perfectly complement the large-scale ecosystem of Coinbase, including the previously acquired broker-dealer Keystone and decentralized exchange Paradex.
Tagomi began operations in December 2018, offering services to investors in Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital assets. These include inter-market execution, capital management, post-trading reporting, settlement and custody services.
