The National Pension Service (NPS) of South Korea bought roughly ₩26 billion ($19.92 million) in Coinbase shares, buying 282,673 COIN shares at an average price of $70.5, according to a local publication, News1, which cited a recent U.S. SEC filing. At $98.15, the shares are now trading over 40% more than the average purchase price of the NPS.

According to News1, the NPS, which as of June 2023 had over $750 billion in assets under administration, had a policy of refraining from making direct investments in cryptocurrency assets.
