Coinbase has reported impressive financial results for the first quarter of 2024, exceeding expectations and demonstrating its strong market position as a global leader.

The company reported revenue of $1.6 billion, up 72% from the previous quarter. Net income was $1.18 billion, or $4.40 per share, exceeding analyst expectations.
