In the supporting shareholder letter, the company compared recent data to 2020, where it saw massive growth. From 2020 to 2022, verified users have tripled, monthly volume is up 6x, and assets on the platform have increased 4x.

Coinbase stated that “down markets are not as bad as they may seem.” It continued, “it can feel scary and near-term financials can be heavily impacted” but that it will “emerge stronger than ever before.”
