The company announced Wednesday in a blog post that it will soon offer the option to trade cryptocurrencies outside the U.S., as part of their global expansion.

Coinbase’s exchange for international customers will begin allowing institutional clients to trade bitcoin, ether and USDC against each other on Thursday. Retail investors will need to wait for a few months before they can do the same, and until other assets are added to the platform.

The company said that “our primary focus will be at the beginning to build liquidity and establish a solid foundation.”

Coinbase launched its international exchange in May this year. Initially, it was only a derivatives trading exchange. This is a popular strategy among crypto-investors that requires heavy oversight in the U.S.

The move was made at a moment when regulators in the U.S. began to crackdown on crypto companies. This included Coinbase, which has been sued and continues to be investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission for alleged violations of federal securities laws. The exchange has taken steps to dismiss these allegations.
