  1. If you currently invest in the stock market but don't invest in crypto, why not? (13/09/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Although many stock market investors also invest in cryptocurrency, many others do not touch it. If you don't, why not? What are your barriers/reasons for not adding cryptocurrency to your portfolio? Is there anything that would cause you to start to invest in cryptocurrency? Do you have concerns about cryptocurrency trading? Or are you just not interested in it? I am hoping to gain some insights into the type of investor that DOES participate in the stock market but does NOT participate in any form of cryptocurrency trading or own cryptocurrency. I am not advocating one way or the other, just curious about what people's reasoning is if you DON'T invest in cryptocurrency. Thank you!   submitted by   /u/hannahzzzzz [link]   [comments]

  21. Coinbase platform going ipo on 4/14/2021 Nasdaq (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Coinbase Exchange going ipo on 4/14/2021 Nasdaq exchange April 9, 2021 This story originally appeared on MarketBeat. Given the astounding growth of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin over the past year, it’s no wonder that the upcoming Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) IPO is one of the most anticipated market events of 2021. As the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase generates massive revenue from transaction fees on its platform and has already given investors insight into its huge earnings potential. It might just be a company that lives up to the hype surrounding its market debut. While there is certainly an element of unpredictability with this business thanks to the volatility of cryptocurrency prices, that likely won’t deter investors from grabbing shares of the company when it goes public via a direct listing on April 14th as COIN. Coinbase is certainly an intriguing player in the burgeoning cryptocurrency industry, which is why we’ve put together a list of 3 things for investors to know about the company ahead of its big debut. The First U.S. Cryptocurrency Exchange to be Publicly Listed Cryptocurrency has come a long way in a very short time. These digital assets are kept on a shared ledger known as a blockchain and have increased in popularity largely due to the meteoric rise in the price of Bitcoin. With more and more businesses and financial institutions getting on board the cryptocurrency train, it’s easy to see the potential in a company like Coinbase. It offers users a simple and safe way to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrencies on its platform. Coinbase has also developed an advanced crypto trading platform called Coinbase Pro that cryptocurrency enthusiasts love. The company generates revenue by charging transaction fees every time its users buy or sell a cryptocurrency on its platform. It also makes money from things like margin fees, custodial services, and a rewards credit card program. The company’s platform enables approximately 43 million retail users, 7,000 institutions, and 115,000 ecosystem partners to participate in the crypto economy. Since this is the first major U.S. cryptocurrency exchange to be publicly listed, it could be a major step towards the widespread adoption of digital currency and will go a long way towards legitimizing the industry. This is one of the big reasons why the company’s debut is attracting so much attention. Eye-Catching Earnings Most high-growth companies that make their market debuts are a long way from reaching profitability. This is another big reason why Coinbase stands out. The company has already delivered some eye-catching earnings that could send the stock price soaring on April 14th. Coinbase had a very strong 2020, during which it generated $1.1 billion in revenue and $322 million in net income. Those were solid numbers for a company that has only been around since 2012, but what’s even more impressive is that the company has already eclipsed those figures in the first quarter of 2021. Coinbase recently provided investors with its estimated Q1 earnings numbers that likely boosted the company’s valuation by billions. The company reported $1.8 billion in Q1 revenue, which topped its revenue for the entirety of 2020. Coinbase also saw $355 billion in trading volume in Q1, which surpassed the entire trading volume of last year. Total assets on Coinbase’s platform increased from $90 billion to $223 billion, which represents 11.3% of the crypto-asset market share. It’s also worth noting that the $223 billion in assets includes $122 billion from institutions, confirming that Coinbase is becoming a trusted name among sophisticated investors.   submitted by   /u/Vast_Cricket [link]   [comments]

  22. Australian Tax Office to Prompt 400,000 Crypto Holders to Report Their Gains (30/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Australia’s revenue service has reminded a growing number of crypto investors about their tax obligations. Rejecting the common misconception that crypto gains are only taxable when coins are cashed back into dollars, the tax office is going to prompt hundreds of thousands of taxpayers to report profits and losses from their cryptocurrency transactions. Tax Office Targets Australians With Crypto-Related Obligations Concerned about crypto investors evading taxes, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has set out to debunk the myth that cryptocurrency gains are only taxable when digital assets are converted into fiat money. People often think the digital coins are currencies but in reality, they are classified as assets, and gains from cryptocurrency trades are like gains from other investments, the tax authority explained.   submitted by   /u/LogicX64 [link]   [comments]

  39. Are Coinbase shares a good way for me to get indirect exposure to cryptocurrency? (04/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    There have been several large IPOs already in 2021. One of the most anticipated was Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN). Its shares were listed under a month ago. It’s the second largest cryptocurrency exchange, and so carries forward the momentum of the industry in general. Over the past year, different virtual coins have seen big increases in value as investors have piled in. With Coinbase now being listed, is buying shares a smart way to get exposure to Bitcoin and other coins? What does Coinbase do? For some people, it might not be that easy to figure out what Coinbase does. It’s not a digital asset mining company, or a cryptocurrency. Rather, it’s an exchange platform. This means I could register on it to buy and sell cryptocurrency. In some ways, it’s like the London Stock Exchange, but for digital coins instead of stocks. Now you might think that it would be odd to buy Coinbase shares to get exposure to digital coins. After all, I wouldn’t buy shares in the LSE Group simply because I want to get exposure to stocks! Yet I think the correlation between Coinbase shares and Bitcoin (or other coins) is different. Coinbase at the moment is the only major listed cryptocurrency exchange. The vast bulk of revenue comes purely from trading fees from people buying and selling coins. For the moment, the performance of Coinbase as a company is very much tied in to the amount of activity and trading on the exchange. Put another way, the more people who buy or sell Bitcoin, the more revenue Coinbase will make from trading commissions. Will Coinbase shares mirror crypto moves? I’ve established that more trading activity is good news for Coinbase as an exchange platform. So in theory, it shouldn’t matter whether Bitcoin moves higher or lower, as long as there is trading activity through Coinbase. This is because it makes money through activity, which could be buying or selling. In the short term, Coinbase shares wouldn’t logically track the direction of a particular coin. This differs from the long-term view. If investors all sell out of Bitcoin and other coins, then over time, there will be very limited activity on the exchange, which would be negative for Coinbase shares. Sometimes, the logical doesn’t always happen. This is because people buy stocks for speculative purposes. For example, I don’t believe that the surge in the GameStop share price was due to company-specific performance. For Coinbase shares, if enough investors buy them speculatively for exposure to Bitcoin, then the share price will likely move in the same way as Bitcoin. There is nothing stopping investors buying and selling stocks regardless of a fundamental value.  In my view, Coinbase shares should have a good correlation to cryptocurrency (Bitcoin in particular) due to speculative investors. But I’m an investor who prefers to buy shares in companies whose product — and future — I really believe in, rather than reacting to speculation. Personally, it’s too early for me to consider buying after the IPO. Recent volatility is very high, so I’m going to sit out until things settle down and I can see how the company is developing. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.
