According to Ark Invest’s latest trade filing, the Wednesday purchase, 181,972 Coinbase shares were added to the Ark Innovation ETF and 31,547 shares were added to the Ark Next Generation Internet.

Most interestingly, Ark has added more than $21 million worth of COIN shares in the last month despite the mounting regulatory pressure facing the exchange and the price of COIN dipping by almost 7% since the beginning of February.

The COIN share price slightly went up on Tuesday buoyed by interest income from USDC before Ark Invest made the purchase the following day. In its Q4 results, Coinbase beat the revenue estimates with interest from USD Coin (USDC) for the quarter translating to $146 million, which is 100% up from the previous quarter.
