◇Upbit half-scale coinbase market cap of 77 trillion… 150 trillion won if dunamu is listed?

The reason behind the surge in stock prices of companies that have anything to do with Dunamu is that there are rumors that Dunamu is promoting listing on the New York Exchange. According to the industry, Dunamu is known to be holding meetings with foreign securities companies such as Credit Switzerland (CS) and Goldman Sachs for listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

An official from Doona said, “We are always examining various possibilities for the company’s growth and development, but it has not been decided,” regarding the possibility of listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US, is scheduled to be listed on the NASDAQ on the 14th (local time). Coinbase’s current corporate value is estimated at $68 billion (77 trillion won).

Upbit, a cryptocurrency exchange operated by Doonamu, has more than twice the daily transaction value of Coinbase. Moreover, since it is believed that the corporate value has risen further due to the recent boom in the cryptocurrency market, there is an analysis that if Dunamu is listed on the New York market, it will be able to receive recognition of the corporate value of about 150 trillion won, which is higher than Coinbase.

In this case, companies that hold shares in Dunamu can see enormous market gains from listing. As such expectations are reflected, the stock price is soaring.

The domestic industry estimates the corporate value of Dunamu at around 10 trillion won. In February, in February, DSC Investment was recognized for its corporate value of 1.5 trillion won in the process of purchasing old stocks from Atineum Investments, the existing shareholder.
