Nas’ Early Coinbase Investment Could Reportedly Net Him $100 Million

QueensBridge makes early-stage investments between $100,000 and $500,000, according to co-founder Anthony Saleh. After dividing that investment range by Coinbase’s Series B share price from that time, Coindesk estimates that QueensBridge could now own 99,329 shares on the low end or 496,642 on the high end, which would give the firm between $34.76 million and $173.8 million worth of shares.

That value could also rise to  $43.7 million and $218.5 million, respectively, if Coinbase shares trade at investment bank DA Davidson’s new price target of $440, Coindesk reports. Coindesk also reported that a source familiar with QueensBridge confirmed Nas’ company was still on the cap table. 

Coinbase’s debut on the Nasdaq on April 14 at the $100 billion valuation “will mark the first official juncture between the traditional financial avenue and the alternative crypto path,”according to Swissquote senior analyst Ipek Ozkardeskaya. 

“As such, a successful addition to Nasdaq should act as endorsement of cryptocurrencies by traditional investors.”
