In Q1 2024, Coinbase disclosed a total revenue of $1.64 billion, accompanied by a net income of $1.18 billion. Consumer transaction revenue amounted to $935 million, while subscription and service revenue contributed $511 million.

Coinbase, the leading digital asset trading platform in the United States based on trading volume, announced a net income of $1.18 billion, equivalent to $4.40 per share. This marks a significant improvement compared to the previous year’s loss of $78.9 million, or 34 cents per share.

Coinbase Reports First Profit in Two Years

In February, Coinbase achieved its first profit in two years, coinciding with the surge in Bitcoin (BTC) prices. This notable increase in net income was partly attributed to a $650 million mark-to-market gain on crypto assets held for investment. This gain followed the adoption of updated accounting standards by the company.

Coinbase witnessed a significant surge in revenue across various categories. Consumer transaction revenue notably reached $935 million for the quarter, more than doubling from the same period last year. Total transaction revenue nearly tripled to $1.08 billion, with subscription and services revenue contributing $511 million for the quarter.

Investors responded positively to the news, with Coinbase shares climbing almost 9% on Thursday ahead of the report. Year-to-date, the stock has risen approximately 32%, building on a nearly fivefold increase in 2023.
