Crypto analyst Will Clemente believes Coinbase’s stock (COIN) is a significant opportunity for investors, comparing it to a “venture-style bet” like Tesla in its early days. He argues that the market is overlooking the potential of Coinbase’s revenue streams beyond just its exchange business.

Coinbase’s Transformation to a “Crypto Super App”

Coinbase’s Expansion Beyond Exchange Services

Clemente highlights Coinbase’s efforts to diversify its offerings, including the launch of its Ethereum layer-2 network, Base. This network is generating substantial revenue through sequencer fees, a fact that traditional investors, according to Clemente, are not taking into account.

Base Network’s Early Success Signals Future Growth

Base Network – A Source of Undervalued Revenue

Coinbase, despite being relatively new, has already captured a significant portion of the market with a total value locked (TVL) of $5.35 billion. The network’s daily transaction volume translates to $30 million in top-line revenue for Coinbase in just the last 30 days, extrapolating to a potential of $360 million annually.

Coinbase Share Price Decline Mirrors Market Volatility

Market Downturn Impacts Coinbase

Coinbase’s share price has fallen alongside broader market weakness, with COIN dropping nearly 16% over the past five days. This decline reflects a similar trend in the S&P 500 and Bitcoin, which have dipped over 3% and 4.67% respectively during the same period. Geopolitical tensions further contribute to the market uncertainty.
