Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has shared his pitch deck from the company’s earliest attempts at fundraising in a post on Medium. It’s a good road map for others who wish to achieve similar success.

San Francisco-based Coinbase recently announced it raised an additional $100 million in Series D funding. That puts its valuation at $1.6 billion, making it the first cryptocurrency company to achieve the so-called “unicorn” status, awarded for companies valued at over one billion.

“Digital currencies are having their ‘Netscape’ moment,” said Armstrong in making the announcement. “The pace of innovation has been accelerating and we are now seeing exciting projects and companies being built on top of digital currencies. We’re beginning to transition into phase three of our secret master plan.”

IVP led the most current round of funding, which will be used to open a GDAX office in New York and expand staff. GDAX is an exchange for institutional and professional investors, as opposed to Coinbase’s retail customers.
