Bitcoin Nears Record Before Largest U.S. Crypto Exchange Coinbase Nears $100 Billion Valuation Listing
Bitcoin neared an all-time high on Monday as bullish sentiment gathered steam ahead of a listing by the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange. Bitcoin Nears Record Before Largest U.S. Crypto Exchange Coinbase Nears $100 Billion Valuation Listing
The token rose as much as 2.6% to $61,229, the highest in nearly a month, before falling back to trade little changed. On March 13, Bitcoin reached a record of $61,742. The cryptocurrency is up almost ninefold in the past year, a return that towers above that of more familiar assets like equities or bullion.
Against the backdrop of Wall Street’s growing embrace of crypto, the direct listing of digital-token exchange Coinbase Global Inc. is fanning interest. Coinbase is due to go public on the Nasdaq on April 14, the first listing of its kind for a major cryptocurrency company and a test of investor appetite for other start-ups in the sector.
Meanwhile, exchange tokens, such as Binance Coin, are seeing their value rise ahead of Coinbase’s public debut as well. Binance’s, known as BNB, rose 23% Monday, according to CoinMarketCap.com. Huobi Token and KuCoin Token, among others, also gained.
“A crypto company moving to IPO is a big milestone,” said Nick Jones, CEO and co-founder at cryptocurrency wallet Zumo. “It’s moves like this that make consumers feel safer with crypto and ultimately boost confidence in the space.”
A growing list of companies are looking at or even investing in Bitcoin, drawn by client demand, price momentum and arguments that it can hedge risks such as faster inflation. Tesla Inc. earlier this year disclosed a $1.5 billion investment in Bitcoin and more recently started accepting it as payment for electric cars.
Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. has said it’s close to offering investment vehicles for Bitcoin and other digital assets to private wealth clients. Morgan Stanley plans to give rich clients access to three funds that will enable crypto ownership. The deck of exchange-traded funds tracking the token is expanding, while Paypal Inc. and Visa Inc. have begun using cryptocurrencies as part of the payments process.
A study by Dutch asset manager Robeco suggests that despite its high volatility, a 1% allocation to Bitcoin in a diversified multi-asset portfolio could be beneficial given its resemblance to gold and its near zero correlation to other asset classes.
“In recent months, a clear and emphatic narrative that Bitcoin is becoming a store of value in the form of digital gold has developed,” according to Jeroen Blokland, a portfolio manager at Robeco.
Other cryptocurrencies, such as second-ranked Ether, have also been climbing. The overall value of more than 6,600 coins tracked by CoinGecko recently surpassed $2 trillion.
Coinbase Sails Toward $100 Billion Valuation On Crypto Frenzy
Looks like Wall Street is about to get 100 billion new reasons to believe in Bitcoin.
Coinbase Global Inc., the fast-growing exchange at the center of the speculative frenzy in cryptocurrencies, is expected to go public this week at a staggering valuation of about $100 billion. That’s more than the venerable New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market combined — for a company that didn’t even exist a decade ago.
If all goes according to plan, Wednesday’s scheduled direct listing on Nasdaq will cement Coinbase’s position as the Big Board of the U.S. crypto scene and a potent symbol of the risks and rewards of the new era of digital money. Its founders, Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam, own stakes worth $15 billion and $2 billion, respectively, according to Bloomberg estimates.
The bottom line at the San Francisco-based exchange would seem to justify the sky-high valuation, at least recently. Coinbase said last week it expects to report first-quarter profit of $730 million to $800 million, more than double what it earned in all of 2020. And revenue in the first three months of 2021 probably surpassed all of the $1.3 billion total for last year. That compares with the $5.6 billion of revenue Nasdaq generated last year.
Coinbase has 56 million verified users and adds about 13,000 new retail customers a day, according to cryptocurrency analytics firm Messari.
“Coinbase is one of the most prominent cryptocurrency exchanges in the world,” Mira Christanto, an analyst who covers the company for Messari, said in a research report. “The market has shown that investors are hungry for crypto exposure through equity markets.”
It’s an astounding ascent for a company started in a San Francisco apartment in 2012 by Armstrong and Ehrsam, who met online in a Bitcoin forum on Reddit. The apparent demand for Coinbase shares mirrors the appetite for all things crypto: Bitcoin has surged almost eightfold in the past year, hitting a record $61,742 in mid-March.
The opportunity for Coinbase now is to capture the increasing number of institutional and corporate customers, such as MicroStrategy Inc. and Tesla Inc., that are buying Bitcoin for the long haul.
“That’s going to be the Holy Grail for them if they can hold on to that business, because those folks are seen more as holders than traders,” said Julie Chariell, a senior analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence for fintech and payments firms.
Providing additional products such as custody services might mean Coinbase could look more like a bank than an exchange in a few years, according to Chariell. “It’s a broader play, getting to be a one-stop shop for whatever you want to do with your crypto assets,” she said.
Coinbase spokesman Elliott Suthers declined to make any company officials available for comment, citing the “quiet period” Coinbase is required to maintain before its Nasdaq listing.
It’s been a long and sometime grueling road to the planned debut, and there are still risks to its business model.
Coinbase disclosed in filings for the share sale that it had received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission. According to a person familiar with the matter, the inquiry was related to XRP, the digital token created by Ripple that’s the subject of an SEC lawsuit alleging it was sold as an unregistered security.
That same month, the SEC announced it was suing Ripple and two of its founders for violating U.S. securities laws. Coinbase was forced to de-list XRP, which at the time was the third most-valuable cryptocurrency in the world.
It’s difficult to tell how the loss of XRP affected Coinbase’s earnings because Bitcoin at the same time was skyrocketing to records, said Bloomberg Intelligence’s Chariell. A greater risk would be the need to de-list many of the alt coins Coinbase now offers if the SEC case determines XRP is a security.
“It is a risk, definitely, but I just don’t think it’s a big risk at this point,” she said.
Despite the XRP scrutiny, Coinbase’s expansion plans seem to be working. In 2020, coins on the exchange other than Bitcoin and Ether accounted for the largest revenue share, at 44%, according to its SEC filing.
“It made economic sense for Coinbase to list high-demand tokens due to higher competition from other exchanges,” Messari’s Christanto said.
Another risk: Coinbase’s fortunes tend to correspond to Bitcoin’s volatile history. The exchange only turned a profit last year as institutional demand for crypto assets propelled Bitcoin and other coins such as Ether to new highs. The recent lean years, known as the crypto winter, stretched from 2018 to 2019, with Bitcoin hitting a low of about $3,100 in December 2018. Until then, Coinbase was known for listing only the big hitters in the crypto world, including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ether.
Coinbase’s prospects won’t come down to a single token like XRP. The majority of its revenue comes from trading fees, with retail customers charged an average of 1.4% and institutional clients about 0.05%, according to Christanto.
To get it through the lean years, Coinbase has conducted seven fundraising rounds for a haul of more than $500 million since September 2012, Messari research shows. That’s on top of the revenue from selling Bitcoin and Ether, which more than tripled last year to $134 million, according to Messari.
All of that has provided a strong financial position for Coinbase to list publicly. Based on figures provided by the company, Chariell calculated that 5.5 million monthly users equates to $3 billion in 2020 revenue. The top 12 fintech firms to go public in the last six months have had price-to-sales ratios of 36 times, she said. Multiplying that by 2020 revenue gets you a very large number.
“You’re easily over $100 billion in market cap,” she said.
Whipsawed Bitcoin Investors Eye Coinbase As Steadier Crypto Bet
For many investors, Coinbase Global Inc.’s trading debut next week will be an entry into the $2 trillion cryptocurrency market.
And for those who have already gorged on Bitcoin, the arrival of the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange on the Nasdaq Stock Market could be what is needed to settle portfolios roiled by the asset class’s notorious volatility.
There are other stocks already tied to the bits and bytes of the various blockchains. Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. and Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy Inc. have both notably added billions worth of Bitcoin to their treasuries. But with Coinbase’s public listing, investors will have the choice of an equity tied to cryptocurrencies that is — so the hope goes — less likely to suffer persistent cycles of boom and bust.
“For a crypto investor that also buys stocks, it has the ability to diversify risks as there is a very profitable exchange platform that trades on another venue (stock exchange) whose flows of buyers and sellers can be less correlated than many crypto prices,” wrote Greg Foss, a veteran credit trader, Bitcoin investor and chief financial officer for Validus Power Corp., in an email reply to questions.
Coinbase is planning to go public through a direct listing in which it will not raise any new capital, it said in an S-1 filing. The direct listing allows current shareholders to trade their shares without a lock-up period that is typical in an initial public offering. It was valued at about $90 billion in its final week of trading on Nasdaq’s private market, Bloomberg News reported.
Still, because volume and price tend to go hand-in-hand, Coinbase’s transaction revenue, its largest segment, could remain susceptible to cryptocurrency market gyrations.
“In a traditional stock portfolio it gives exposure to an exchange platform that generates trading fees on crypto,” wrote Foss. “Those fees increase with volumes and volumes typically increase with prices, so there is a beta trade there.”
Coinbase said Tuesday that it expects to report a first-quarter profit of $730 million to $800 million, more than double what it earned in all of 2020. The bumper quarter for the exchange comes amid surging cryptocurrency prices. The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index, tracking Bitcoin, Ether and six other cryptocurrencies advanced by more than 100% in each of the last two quarters.
Coinbase may have further appeal for investors. The exchange could provide an accessible diversified investment into the space, where there’s a proliferation of cryptocurrency tokens and few passive vehicles to spread bets around, according to Gil Luria, head of institutional research at D.A. Davidson & Co.
“Coinbase will win regardless of which crypto asset emerges as a winner, and their revenue is tied more to trading volumes, which are often less volatile than asset values,” Luria wrote in an email.
But investors looking to add some stability to their cryptocurrency portfolios may want to exercise patience.
Kevin Kelly, global head of macro strategy at research firm Delphi Digital, warns that those seeking a lower volatility investment might want to sit out Coinbase’s first week of trading.
“I expect to see a lot of volatility next week once COIN begins trading, but eventually I think we’ll see it trade more in line with the direction of the broader crypto market,” Kelly wrote in an email. “However, I view it as a lower beta play on the continued expansion of crypto with less downside risk to crypto asset prices; in other words, COIN is more agnostic to crypto asset prices and may be an attractive opportunity for investors looking to gain exposure to the continued adoption of crypto without taking on similar levels of price volatility.”
Bitcoin Extends All-Time High As Traders Eye Coinbase Listing
Bitcoin advanced Wednesday after eclipsing its most recent record in March a day earlier as the mood in cryptocurrencies turned bullish ahead of Coinbase Global Inc.’s listing this week.
The token extended gains in Asia, climbing to as high as $63,856 before pulling back slightly. Cryptocurrency-exposed stocks such as Riot Blockchain Inc. and Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. advanced during U.S. trading hours.
Crypto bulls are out in force as a growing list of companies embrace Bitcoin, even as skeptics doubt the durability of the boom.
In one of the most potent signs of Wall Street’s growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies, Coinbase will list on the Nasdaq on April 14 at a valuation of about $100 billion.
Coinbase’s debut “will mark the first official juncture between the traditional financial avenue and the alternative crypto path,” Ipek Ozkardeskaya, a senior analyst at Swissquote, wrote in a note. “As such, a successful addition to Nasdaq should act as endorsement of cryptocurrencies by traditional investors.”
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley have announced plans to offer their clients access to crypto investments. Tesla Inc. earlier this year disclosed a $1.5 billion investment in Bitcoin and more recently started accepting it as payment for electric cars.
Still, skeptics argue that digital coins have been inflated by stimulus that’s also sent stocks to records. Regulators around the world are stepping up oversight and casting doubt on its usefulness as a currency.
Isabel Schnabel, member of the executive board of the European Central Bank, called Bitcoin “a speculative asset without any recognizable fundamental value” in an interview with Der Spiegel this month.
Coinbase’s public debut this week is also boosting the digital coins of other cryptocurrency exchanges, such as Binance Coin, which has jumped to become the third-most valuable cryptocurrency behind Bitcoin and Ether.
Many analysts expect the rally to continue.
“The lowest 30-day volatility since October tells us Bitcoin is ripe to exit its cage and continue in a bull-market on its way to the next $10,000 move,” according to Mike McGlone, Bloomberg Intelligence commodities strategist. “Similar to Tesla’s equity-wealth allocation to Bitcoin, the Coinbase IPO may add to the growing list of 2021 crypto-validation milestones.”
Coinbase Stock Looks To Find Its Footing At $328.28 Following Explosive Open
COIN stock has surged after debuting on the Nasdaq exchange Wednesday.
Shares of digital currency exchange Coinbase (COIN) opened at $381 Wednesday — significantly higher than its pre-listing reference price of $250 — underscoring heightened institutional demand for the crypto-focused stock.
The $381 value put Coinbase’s market capitalization at $99.6 billion on a fully diluted basis. The stock peaked at $429.54 for a gain of 71.8% from the original reference price. It was last seen trading around $350, having gained 43%, according to Yahoo Finance data.
Meanwhile, the technology-focused Nasdaq Composite Index, which listed COIN, was down 0.6% on Wednesday.
As Nasdaq reported Tuesday, Coinbase’s reference price does not reflect its offering price, which means nobody purchased or sold shares at the $250 price point quoted previously. “The opening public price will be determined based on buy and sell orders in the opening auction on Nasdaq,” the exchange clarified.
Volatility was expected for Coinbase on its first day of trading, as price discovery and pent-up demand led investors to bid up the price significantly shortly after it went public. Investors got a taste of the volatility in the derivatives market, where the “pre-IPO” price of COIN shot up to a high of $640 before crashing to $420 on FTX, a leading crypto derivatives platform.
Coinbase’s public listing is considered a “watershed” moment for the cryptocurrency market. Ben Lilly, co-founder of Jarvis Labs, said COIN stock would provide a “bridge” to legacy markets that are still uncomfortable with the prospect of digital-asset investing. Several crypto-proxy stocks have exploded in value this year, largely in lockstep with Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital assets.
Coinbase Pays $6.5 Million To Settle U.S. False Reporting Charges
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said on Friday digital asset exchange Coinbase Inc paid $6.5 million to settle charges it reported misleading transaction data that potentially inflated the apparent trading volume on its professional GDAX platform.
The regulator also fined the company for so-called “wash trades” in Litecoin and bitcoin by a former Coinbase employee on GDAX, it said in a statement.
The settlement comes ahead of a planned stock market listing for the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange which is valued at around $68 billion based on private market transactions, the company said on Wednesday.
The eye-popping figure, which implies Coinbase is more valuable than the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, underscores how the perceived value of Coinbase has rallied in lock-step with the surge in the price of bitcoin.
“The settlement order today does not include any finding of harm to any Coinbase customer,” a Coinbase spokesman said. “While Coinbase neither admits nor denies the CFTC’s findings, we firmly believe that Coinbase has always aimed to create a reliable and secure trading environment for the benefit of our customers.”
Between January 2015 and September 2018, two Coinbase-operated trading programs matched orders with one another, resulting in transactions between accounts owned by Coinbase.
GDAX disclosed that Coinbase was trading on GDAX but failed to disclose it was operating more than one trading program and through multiple accounts, the CFTC said.
Coinbase subsequently included the information for these transactions on its website and provided that information to reporting services and exchanges, either directly or through access to its website.
“Transactional information of this type is used by market participants for price discovery … and potentially resulted in a perceived volume and level of liquidity of digital assets, including bitcoin, that was false, misleading, or inaccurate,” the CFTC said.
Coinbase Insiders Dump Nearly $5 Billion In COIN Stock Shortly After Listing
After an edict to remain “mission focused,” Coinbase executives have succeeded in making themselves a fortune.
Insider activity reports for Coinbase’s COIN stock indicate that multiple early investors and executives sold billions in equity shortly after COIN’s direct listing. While the filings initially indicated that multiple executives sold a high percentage of their stake in the company, a representative for Coinbase told Cointelegraph that the sellers maintain strong ownership positions.
Data from Capital Market Laboratories and confirmed by filings on Coinbase’s Investor Relations website shows a total of 12,965,079 shares were sold by insiders, worth over $4.6 billion at COIN’s $344.38 per share Friday close.
Notable transactions include Coinbase CFO Alesia Haas selling some 255,500 shares at a price of $388.73 (though her Form 4 states that she retains options), while CEO Brian Armstrong sold 749,999 shares in three transactions at various prices, netting a total of $291,827,966.
According to his Form 4 disclosure, after the sale Armstrong retains 300,001 shares worth over $1 billion. In a filing prior to the direct listing however, he was reported to have 36,851,833 shares, indicating that he sold just over 2% of his stake in the company.
Capital Market Laboratories’ data did not indicate that any directors or insiders purchased additional shares, only sold. The sales can also be seen on OpenInsider’s SEC Form 4 screener.
A representative for Coinbase told Cointelegraph that the percentage equity share of each executive is not accurately reported by these reporting services, and that the sales represent only a fraction of the executive and insider ownership.
The reports prompted jeering and amusement on social media, with many observers likening the sales to a classic “pump and dump” in which insiders and team members dump tokens into retail liquidity shortly after a listing.
While early investors and executives looked to cash in, there are at least a handful of major buyers. Hedge fund manager Cathie Wood is placing a big bet on the exchange, having purchased over $350 million in shares for three different Ark ETFs.
Likewise, many Coinbase employees now have stake in the company, as 1,700 Coinbase staff were gifted 100 shares each as a “thank you” from the company.
Earlier this year, Coinbase was embroiled in a string of negative headlines relating to CEO Brian Armstrong’s handling of a new policy that restricted focus on political and social issues at work. Armstrong insisted that the company remain “mission focused,” and the company’s mission includes a goal of becoming “the leading global brand for helping people convert digital currency into and out of their local currency.”
Scaramucci Surprised At Lack Of Banking Response To Coinbase Listing
Will competing companies come out of the woodwork?
After much anticipation, Coinbase listed on the Nasdaq on Wednesday via a direct listing. Skybridge founder Anthony Scaramucci thinks the event should have been met with more attention from banks.
“What I’m surprised about, frankly, is there isn’t a wake-up call at the banks, the commercial banks, like there was for the Netscape IPO in 1995 at Microsoft,” Scaramucci told CNBC on Friday after noting Coinbase’s connection with Bitcoin (BTC), in line with the asset’s growth and technical framework.
“Bill Gates thought the internet was a fad. He then realized what was happening with the Netscape IPO, and he deployed several billion dollars into an internet strategy which led to Explorer [Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s browser] and adapted and pivoted into it. I’m surprised the commercial banks, people like Jamie Dimon, aren’t pouring money into a clone of Coinbase.”
Michael Novogratz, Galaxy Digital’s CEO, also recently mentioned Netscape’s debut as similar in gravity to the Coinbase listing. He noted the digital asset company’s public emergence as a key point in cryptocurrency adoption.
“I think this is a seminal event,” Scaramucci said of the Coinbase listing, subsequently noting that he holds some shares of Coinbase. “It trades like Facebook and Google traded in the first couple of days,” he said, adding:
“People were looking at lackluster performance after the IPO, and then look at those stocks over the ensuing years.”
Coinbase stock spiked up to roughly $429 on its listing day but has since retraced, trading near $340 at the time of publication, based on TradingView data. The crypto company trades under the ticker symbol COIN, but a tokenized version of the stock also exists on crypto derivatives exchange FTX.
‘Unprecedented Capital Inflows Into Bitcoin’ Remove 12K BTC From Coinbase In An Hour
Investors mean business as current prices remain more than attractive to new buyers.
Another day, another spike in Bitcoin (BTC) leaving major exchange Coinbase as funds pour into the largest cryptocurrency.
Data from on-chain monitoring resource Glassnode showed 12,354 BTC ($694 million) being withdrawn from the Coinbase order book in a single hour on Friday.
Coinbase Sees Another BTC Balance Squeeze
As the largest exchange in the United States, Coinbase has frequently been the venue for major Bitcoin buy-ins this year.
As Cointelegraph reported, sudden tranches in excess of 10,000 BTC heading to private wallets is far from unheard of but nonetheless demonstrates a desire to at least store Bitcoin for the long term instead of keeping it within easy reach of a point of sale.
For analyst Lex Moskovski, the type of investor behind such transactions remains uncertain — it could be a private individual or small group, as well as an institutional investor or corporate client.
“Institutions or not, that’s still a significant outflow,” he commented on the Glassnode data.
“Healthy Bull Market”
The data comes hand in hand with on-chain indicators staying firmly bullish. This week, Glassnode co-founder Rafael Schultze-Kraft highlighted a surge in Bitcoin’s so-called realized cap (Rcap) likewise supporting the broad buying thesis.
The realized cap is a measure of Bitcoin’s market capitalization based on the price at which each coin last moved. It provides a useful insight into the market composition and trader sentiment and produces a significantly different total to the traditional market cap.
“Unprecedented capital inflows into Bitcoin as measured by realized capitalization,” Schultze-Kraft tweeted on Friday.
“Over the past 6 months, realized cap has surged a whopping $250 billion – an increase of ~200%. Healthy bull market.”
He added that realized cap has increased by the same amount as the entire traditional market cap of Bitcoin as measured in December 2020.
Relative to traditional cap, however, Rcap can still increase significantly before signalling the top of the bull market. MVRV, which measures the ratio of the two metrics, measured 4.4 this week, compared to 7.6 in February and over 10 at past market cycle tops.
“We have yet to experience true fomo yet from institutions. It’s coming,” Timothy Kim responded to the Glassnode numbers.
Coinbase And Top Execs Face Securities Class Action Over Nasdaq Listing
Alongside Coinbase itself, the class action names CEO Brian Armstrong, CLO Paul Grewal, other top executives and several of its venture capital backers as defendants.
A Coinbase shareholder has filed a securities class action against Coinbase for allegedly misleading investors ahead of its public listing about the company’s financial state and resilience as a crypto trading platform.
Filed by law firm Scott + Scott in the California Northern District Court on Thursday, the class action names Coinbase shareholder Donald Ramsey as a plaintiff, both individually and on behalf of all other investors similarly situated.
Ramsey is pursuing his claims under the United States Securities Act and has presented evidence drawn from Coinbase’s regulatory filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, company press releases, analyst reports and other publicly disclosed information about the exchange.
Alongside the company itself, the class action names CEO Brian Armstrong, chief legal officer Paul Grewal and other top executives as defendants, as well as several of its venture capital backers.
Ramsey is accusing Coinbase and its executives of making “materially misleading statements” in their offering materials at the time of the public listing and offering positive statements that “lacked a reasonable basis.” The class action alleges that:
“At the time of the Offering: (1) the Company required a sizeable cash injection; (2) the Company’s platform was susceptible to service-level disruptions, which were increasingly likely to occur as the Company scaled its services to a larger user base.”
Ramsey further alleges that once the alleged discrepancies between self-presentation and reality came to public light, Coinbase’s share price fell accordingly. Citing events in mid-May, when Coinbase conceded it needed to raise funds and announced plans to raise $1.25 billion through a convertible bond sale, Ramsey emphasizes that the company’s stock sharply declined by close to 10% over two trading sessions.
The Class-Action Marshals Evidence From Contemporary Media Reports In Mid-May, Citing A Forbes Report On The Bond Sale Announcement:
“Investors were also likely surprised by the timing of the issue, considering that Coinbase just went public in mid-April via a direct listing (which doesn’t involve issuing new shares or raising capital), signaling that it didn’t require cash. So the company’s decision to issue bonds a little over a month later is likely raising some questions.”
Ramsey’s class action also points to the technical difficulties on the platform on May 19, when a surge of traders hoping to “get their money out” during a bearish period in the crypto markets experienced “delays […] due to network congestion.”
As Cointelegraph reported at the time, delays in Ether (ETH) and ERC-20 token withdrawals ostensibly due to congestion on the Ethereum network were experienced that day by users on both Coinbase and Binance. While not indicating the reason, the Gemini exchange also announced that it would be taking emergency maintenance actions to correct ongoing issues.
The class action argues that these kinds of service-level technical issues are critical and damaging for the company’s claims to be the easiest place to buy and sell crypto in the retail market. The complaint emphasizes this all the more so, given that the company is reliant on transaction fees to “generate nearly all of its revenues.”
By the time Ramsey commenced the class action, Coinbase’s stock was trading at $208 per share, compared to its opening price of $381 on April 14.
Counsel for the defendants had reportedly not yet appeared as of Thursday. Cointelegraph has reached out to Coinbase representatives for comment and will update this article accordingly.
Coinbase Goes Live In Japan In Partnership With Banking Giant MUFG
Coinbase announced its official launch in Japan in partnership with banking giant Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group providing a “quick deposit” fiat on-and-off ramp.
Coinbase, the top crypto exchange in the U.S. has announced its official launch in Japan in partnership with banking giant Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG).
The firm led by CEO Brian Armstrong announced on Aug. 19 that it will first launch retail trading products including “a suite of five top assets based on trading volume,” with more assets and products to be listed in the coming months.
“We also plan to introduce more localized versions of globally popular services such as advanced trading, Coinbase for Institutions, and more in the future,”
The partnership with Tokyo-based MUFG will see the bank provide a fast fiat on-and-off ramp for Coinbase customers in Japan called MUFG Quick Deposit.
“In line with our global strategy, we will aim to be the easiest to use and most trusted exchange in Japan that’s fully compliant with local regulations.” the announcement read.
Coinbase has had its eye on the Japanese market for a while now, with Cointelegraph reporting in October 2019 that the firm was seeking licensing approval from Japan’s financial regulator the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
In March 2020 the firm also registered as a crypto exchange with FSA-approved and official self-regulatory organization the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA).
Cointelegraph reported earlier today that Coinbase has hoarded a cash-based war chest worth around $4 billion to prepare for decreased retail trading in case of a possible “crypto-winter”, along with increased costs brought on by future regulatory compliance hurdles.
Coinbase Amasses A $4B War Chest So It Can Outlast ‘Crypto Winter’
Strong revenues over the past two quarters from a large user base helped the exchange amass the funds.
Coinbase, the largest American cryptocurrency exchange, has stockpiled a war chest worth about $4 billion in cash in preparation for decreased crypto retail trading volumes and higher operating costs brought on by regulatory hurdles.
It reportedly expects to use the cash to cover costs incurred by a variety of factors, including conforming to new regulations handed down by the United States legislature.
Coinbase chief financial officer Alesia Haas told the Wall Street Journal that no one single danger to the exchange or the industry had compelled the exchange to build its cash reserves but that it was best to be prepared for the worst while times are good. The company has conducted stress tests to ensure it can meet the costs of compliance, cyberattacks or possible trading declines.
“We want to ensure that we maintain those cash reserves so that we can continue to invest and continue to grow our products and services in the event that we go into a crypto winter.”
“Crypto winter” refers to an extended bear market, and the term originated in the sustained downturn from early 2018 through 2019.
Regulatory storm clouds are gathering due to a bill that passed in the United States Senate last week, which is so loosely worded that decentralized finance platforms, miners and validators could be defined as brokers for tax purposes. These entities may be required to report user activity to the Internal Revenue Service. The definition of “broker” has prompted many in the crypto space to lobby their representatives fervently.
While there are hopes the bill will be amended in the House of Representatives, there are fears that if the bill gets signed into law as-is, a significant amount of retail crypto trading volume could dry up.
Binance, one of Coinbase’s top competitors, also began stockpiling a similar emergency fund in 2019. The Binance Secure Asset Fund for Users fund, however, is meant to compensate users for security breaches and other cybersecurity-related issues.
Leading up to the fiery debate in the Senate, Coinbase had recorded tremendous profits topping some $740 million in Q1 and $1.6 billion from $2.2 billion in revenue during Q2. Revenue at the exchange is mostly generated by high transaction fees on the platform from nearly 9 million retail investors and roughly 9,000 institutional investors.
The ability for Coinbase to generate such high profits based on above-average transaction prices on its platform has seen the market value of Coinbase hover around $51 billion.
Another expense the war chest may need to cover is for new product roll-outs. With its current heavy reliance on transaction fees, Coinbase is vulnerable to a loss of revenue. Therefore, the exchange may focus on launching new financial services in order to diversify its streams of revenue.
