I find this a surprising announcement, what a different world we would live in if all liberated digital currencies.

This is a big deal, no matter what this cements Bitcoin as an alternative store of value.
Coinbase Inc., a startup backed by $106 million from the New York Stock Exchange, banks and venture-capital firms, will allow individuals and institutions to trade and monitor real-time pricing of the cryptocurrency.

A significant moment in the history of crypto-currencies. Lest not forget Coinbase is a bet on blockchain technology and is not specific to any coin.
Coinbase, one of the most popular Bitcoin wallet providers, announced on Tuesday that it had closed a $75 million financing round, the biggest yet for a virtual currency start-up. The announcement of the funding, led by DFJ Growth, could not have come at a better time for Bitcoin, ...

Bill rubs it in, Bitcoin is not a currency and is unsuitable for remittances. Maybe a store of value and a means of liquidity.

In Perspective  - 
 
2015 will remembered for a flight to quality for crypto traders.

Probe adds to list of lawsuits, investigations of alleged Bitcoin-fueled fraud.
