Coinbase Stats on Revenue, Profits, Market

Coinbase brought in $803 million in revenue in Q2 2022.

Compared to the same quarter of 2021, Coinbase revenue took a significant plunge, as Q2 2021 brought in more than $2 billion. The downturn can be attributed primarily to the downturn in the crypto market.

However, another issue that affects the company is an ongoing SEC investigation against the company’s former employee. He was accused of fraud by letting people close to him know which assets will be listed and what to purchase. This led to the SEC raising questions about some of the crypto assets on the platform in an attempt to instate new regulations.

(Coinbase)

Coinbase’s net income in Q2 2022 is a $1.1 billion loss.

As the global market has been showing a lot of volatility in the past two years, it has been felt in crypto as well. So in Q2 2022, Coinbase had no profits. Coinbase is one of the exchanges that were hit the hardest, as its primary audience is regular people who have had to become more risk averse and reduce their crypto investing activities. However, this doesn't mean the interest in crypto is waning. As the number of Coinbase users has been growing, it is a matter of time and general economic stability when the crypto market will bounce back.

(Coinbase)

In Q2, 67% of Coinbase active users focused on non-investing products.

Six out of nine million users in Q2 2022 refrained from trading and focused more on non-investment activities on Coinbase, such as staking. This is the more secure choice given the current economic state, and Coinbase core users are making the choice to play it safe instead of risking their investments.

Coinbase makes the bulk of its revenue from transaction fees, with fees bringing $655.2 million in Q2 2022.

Total Coinbase revenue in Q2 2022 amounted to $803 million while the distribution of revenue streams remained similar to previous quarters. Transactions were the top stream as usual, while Coinbase saw revenue of $147 million from subscriptions and services. Analyst predictions were higher for this quarter, with $715 million for transactions and $139 million for subscriptions and services.

Coinbase assets equaled $96 billion in Q2 2022.

Coinbase statistics point to a considerable loss compared to the previous quarter when the company had $256 billion in assets. The majority of the issue lies in lower crypto prices that affected the exchange along with the rest of the market, which prompted institutional clients to sell crypto for fiat currencies. The company expects the rest of 2022 to continue in this manner. Still, Coinbase emphasizes that the current downturn in the market is a part of a regular cycle and there is no reason for concern, illustrating this statement with the fact that 77% of BTC owners are holding their coin, waiting for the storm to pass.

Bitcoin makes up 44% of all assets on the Coinbase platform.

Bitcoin is followed by Ethereum which constitutes 20% of all assets on the platform. These stats show that these two largest cryptocurrencies are the most popular coins on the platform, while fiat currencies make up another 7% and all other coins account for 29% of assets.

(Coinbase)

Coinbase volume traded in Q2 2022 amounted to $217 billion.

The $217 billion in volume is a considerable drop compared to the $309 billion Coinbase had in the first quarter. Coinbase’s trading volume is a particularly valuable metric when we look at its retail to institutional users share since retail users are the core of Coinbase’s business. Retail users contributed only $46 billion to the total volume, a major decline compared to the first quarter’s $74 billion.

(Coinbase)

Bitcoin made up 31% of total trading volume on Coinbase.

This is the highest percentage of Coinbase’s volume that Bitcoin’s had in the last 12 months. The share for Ethereum hasn’t changed significantly. However, the participation of other crypto assets in the total trading volume on the platform dropped to 47%, which is their lowest share of the total volume in the last year. So if we look at the trading volume share of all coins on the platform, people are mostly buying Bitcoins from Coinbase, as statistics show.

(Coinbase)

Coinbase had a market share of 6.7% in July 2022.

Coinbase lost a part of its market share this year, measured compared to the spot trading volume of the top 15 exchanges. With these numbers in focus, Coinbase’s market share fell from 10.7% in January 2022 to 6.7% in July.

(Bloomberg)

Since the beginning of 2022, Coinbase has seen a 57.2% decrease in spot trading volume.

The company suffered greater losses than its main competitor Binance, which dropped by 12.9%, standing firmly at the top of the world’s crypto exchange market with a share of 54% in July. More competition also comes from FTX, which added equities trading into its offer to soften the blow of the market.

However, Coinbase is not going down so easily, as it partnered with BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world. This will enable Coinbase Prime users access to BlackRock’s platform Aladdin built specifically for institutional users.
