Coinbase (COIN) share drops after quarterly earnings release – fr

Shares of Coinbase Global Inc. fluctuated after the market on Thursday after the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange reported net income above Wall Street estimates.
Coinbase reported total sales of $ 1.8 billion, in line with its April forecast, but slightly below the $ 1.81 billion expected by analysts polled by Bloomberg. The company’s net income of $ 771 million fell to the middle of the forecast range of $ 730 million to $ 800 million, and exceeded analysts’ expectations of $ 762.6 million.

Coinbase reported a day after Tesla Inc. said it would stop accepting Bitcoin for payment, leading the world’s largest cryptocurrency to crash below $ 50,000. Coinbase CFO Alesia Haas said in an interview that the sharp drop “is just a day away. It is important not to over-index in a single day. “
