Who is Serena Williams?

Recently, the sports star surprised her subscribers on Instagram with a post, which said that Williams launched a business of her own back in 2014, whose main goal is to financially support promising projects and businesses in different industries.
“Serena Ventures invests in companies that embrace diverse leadership, individual empowerment, creativity and opportunity,” Williams wrote in her post.
The companies on the list of Serena Williams include the dinner kits producer Gobble, a razor manufacturer Billie, the bridal shop Floravere and many others. What caught our eye was that the list included Coinbase.
Coinbase is a major American cryptocurrency exchange, based in San Francisco. With over 500 employees, the company has around 1 billion dollars in revenue.
The support from such an influential and wealthy person as Serena Williams is definitely going to boost up the popularity of Coinbase and raise awareness of cryptocurrency among the community.
