Coinbase's New Trading Volume

Shares of Coinbase Global (Nasdaq: COIN) dropped 5.45% in after-hours trading on Tuesday after the cryptocurrency exchange platform posted negative financial earnings results.

Financials: Coinbase lost $4.98 per share and reported revenue of $808.3 million; both were below estimates.

The Bad: Trading volume dropped 30% and transaction revenue fell 35%. The lower trading volume resulted in net revenue declining 31% since the previous quarter. And with operating expenses up 8%, net losses totaled $1.1 billion. The declining price of crypto factored into the losses.

The Good: Despite the tough macro environment, subscription and services revenue jumped 44% and monthly transacting users declined only by 2% since the first quarter.

Numbers: Coinbase’s stock is down 65% this year, but is up 62% in the past 30 days as crypto losses slowed down.

Final Thoughts: Coinbase is a good bellwether for the crypto industry, which has been in trouble all year.
