Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest sells another $42.6m Coinbase shares, $1.6m in GBTC

Ark Invest, the investment firm led by Cathie Wood, has again sold a substantial portion of its holdings in Coinbase Global Inc. (COIN) as the crypto exchange’s stock value soared to a 20-month high.

The latest move comes amidst a broader reshuffling of the firm’s portfolio in response to recent market dynamics.

On Dec. 13, Ark Invest sold 283,104 shares of Coinbase, valued at approximately $42.6 million, across two of its funds. The sale is part of a larger trend with the firm’s weekly sales reaching $56 million, as per their latest trade filing.

Ark sold 239,237 Coinbase shares ($36 million) from its Innovation ETF and 43,867 ($6.6 million) from its Next Generation Internet ETF. This follows the disposal of COIN shares worth $13.4 million on Dec. 11 and 12 and a $100 million sale last week.

Coinbase’s stock closed at $150.46 on Dec. 13, marking a 7.8% increase on the day. Over the past month, the stock has surged by 64%, reaching its highest level since April 2022.

Despite this recent upswing, the stock remains approximately 60% below its all-time high of $343, recorded in November 2021.

In addition to Coinbase, Ark also offloaded 45,864 shares of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), valued at around $1.6 million, on Wednesday.

This decision coincides with a notable reduction in the discount to net asset value (NAV) for GBTC. From over 40% in the summer, it has reduced to just 7.4% as of yesterday, the smallest margin in approximately two and a half years.

Discount to net asset value (NAV) refers to the extent to which the market price of each share falls below the actual value of the Bitcoin it represents.
