Sutter Street, San Francisco, California, United States

Reason for Visit

East Asia and North America (mainly the United States) are the world’s two largest cryptocurrency trading markets, with trading volume accounting for about half of the global crypto market. Compared with various exchanges in East Asia, exchanges in the US are subject to stricter regulation. Besides, Coinbase is the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US; To help investors better understand cryptocurrency exchanges in the US, our investigation team went to the US to carry out a site visit.
