In an announcement posted to its blog this week, Coinbase has launched a “Share” feature on its exchange app that allows you to share select information regarding your crypto portfolio. The only information options that a user can publicly disclose are price changes, portfolio allocations, education resources on the site, or information about crypto assets that are available to trade on that platform – not your actual account balances.
The largest U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange believes that this “self-sharing” can empower retail investors to become more engaged with other members of the crypto-community to spur mutual learning. It also seems to be a way of engaging non-crypto friends and family members to help drive adoption of blockchain-based technology.
Coinbase states in its blog post that they wanted to simplify information sharing in a safe and secure way for users of its app who are interested in that type of utility. According to Coinbase, individuals only need to tap on the “Share” button – pictured below – in the Coinbase app on any asset price page or your portfolio page. You can then share those respective pages with your private network or on your social network.
