After Coinbase (COIN) got a Wells Notice from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 22, which caused COIN to drop 16% the following day, Cathy Wood’s ARK Invest bought $12.6 million worth of shares of the cryptocurrency exchange on Friday. This was the fund’s second straight day of purchasing COIN stock. On Friday, the shares increased 1.5% to $67.83 per share.

A total of $18.1 million worth of Block (SQ) shares were also purchased by ARK on Friday, the fund’s second day of purchases following the stock’s 17% decline on March 23 as a result of a negative report by a short seller named Hindenburg Research.
