What Does It Mean for Coinbase Stocks?

Still, Mizuho Senior Analyst Dan Dreff does not recommend investing in cryptocurrency exchanges. CNBC’s “Closing Bell: Overtime“, He said:
What you are seeing now is the beginning of a real crackdown on cryptocurrencies. I would be really worried if I owned any of these cipher names. We do not invest in public exchanges, including Coinbase.
I also received coinbase last week Wells Notice from the Securities and Exchange Commission for violating US securities laws. Coinbase shares ended Monday with him down nearly 10%.
Dref Prefers Bitcoin Over Coinbase Stocks
Dolev currently has a “poor performance” rating on the cryptocurrency exchange. His $30 price target suggests the company’s stock could fall another 50% from here.
No business model. If the government cracks down on altcoins and staking, it will be his 35% of Coinbase’s revenue. So what are they left with?
Nevertheless, Coinbase Global Inc. report February’s fourth quarter results beat expectations. However, in Q4 he had 8.3 million MTU (Monthly Trading Users) and a year ago he had 8.5 million.
