As of April 12, 2021, the company announced that there are 130.7M shares of Class A common stock outstanding and 68.5M shares of Class B common stock outstanding. According to Coinbase, its fully diluted capitalization sits at 261.3M shares of common stock.

"This fully diluted capitalization share count includes the shares of common stock outstanding and all outstanding stock options and restricted stock units but does not include shares of common stock reserved for future issuance under Coinbase's equity compensation plans or its Pledge 1% commitment. Only shares of Class A common stock will be listed for trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Trading of shares of Class A common stock is expected to commence on April 14, 2021. Each outstanding share of Class B common stock is convertible, at any time, at the option of the holder, into one share of Class A common stock." - Coinbase

The cryptocurrency company did $1.8 billion in revenue ahead of the Nasdaq listing in the first quarter of 2021.  Net income is estimated between $730 million and $800 million, with a monthly active userbase of more than 6 million.

This IPO comes as cryptocurrency leader Bitcoin surpassed a new historic high on April 13th. Bitcoin futures reached a high of $64,450 during the session, while Ethereum futures extended to highs of $2,345. So should you buy COIN stock when it IPOs, or are there other ways to play the hype?
