Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong confirmed plans to sell his 2% stake in the crypto exchange firm Coinbase in a tweet on October 15 to fund other firms he co-founded.

He does, however, aim to contribute to science and technology in order to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. As a result, he intends to sell his 2% interest in Coinbase in order to support scientific research as well as the companies NewLimit and ResearchHub.
