The kind of trust that lies in Coinbase is not easily found on other platforms. And in recent times, even the company has scaled up massively. It grew over a market cap of $100 billion and has planned to go public. And just a week before its IPO, Coinbase has released its Q1 2021 revenue. And to say the least, it is going to be the huge driving factor for good share demand in its IPO.
Coinbase Q1 2021 revenue details
The company has seen massive growth in the last year after the surge in crypto investments. It reported $1.8 billion in revenue in quarter 1 of 2021, which is almost an 8-9 times increase from the last year. Do note that this is not the profit of the company. After adjustments of tax, interest, depreciation, and other metrics, the revenue comes to about $1.1 billion. And the profit in it is estimated to be $730-$800 million.
