Coinbase Global COIN is slated to report second-quarter 2022 results on Aug 9, after the closing bell. COIN delivered an earnings surprise in two of the last four reported quarters, while missing in two.
Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the announcement.
COIN’s second-quarter results are likely to benefit from increased adoption of a greater number of crypto assets and higher volatility coupled with a rise in interest across the entire crypto-economy.
Retail, institutional and ecosystem partners are likely to have grown across all key metrics including Verified Users, retail Monthly Transacting Users (MTUs), Trading Volume, and Assets on Platform.
Ethereum’s trading volume growth is likely to have been aided by an increase in institutional interest, the launch of Ethereum 2.0 staking products, and growth in DeFi and NFT.
An increase in MTUs and elevated trading volumes per MTU are likely to have aided Retail transaction revenues. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Retail transaction revenues, net, is pegged at $629 million.
Improved transactional revenues along with subscription and services revenues are likely to have aided the top line in the second quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $877 billion for the to-be-reported quarter.
Coinbase noted a strong crypto price cycle with high prices of many crypto assets, high levels of volatility, and high interest in crypto across retail and institutional users in the to-be-reported quarter. COIN is a market-leading brand, exclusively focused on the cryptoeconomy and thus is expected to have benefited from this tailwind.
However, increased competition is likely to have been an overhang. Operating expense is likely to have increased, given higher trading volumes, account verification fees, payment processing fees and digital advertising spend.
Coinbase expects transaction expenses in the to-be-reported quarter to be in the low to mid-20s, attributable to higher blockchain reward revenues and operating expenses.
