ARK has added 74,792 shares of Coinbase (COIN) to the ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK), according to an investor email on Thursday.

The additional buy comes a day after the tech investment fund made a $1.45 million purchase of the crypto exchange’s shares, adding 33,756 shares of COIN to the treasury of ARKK.

ARK also added 69,060 shares of Tesla (TSLA) to ARKK’s holdings, worth around $8.5 million.

The CoinDesk Market Index (CMI) has also been squarely in the green, climbing 9.63% to 884.37.
