Institutional investors have seemed reluctant to join in on the crypto rally. However, a public company that offers easier access and exposure to crypto assets is a great way to do it. Should Coinbase win their trust, they would definitely have a head start in this race, and the stock could grow for many years to come.

And it’s these institutional investors that Coinbase will try to entice in the coming years.
A notable scenario would be a crypto winter which suffocates Coinbase revenue and slows down its progress. When trading volume declines and other exchanges offer lower fees to further coincide with the industry’s growth, Coinbase may struggle to maintain previous results, leading to a decline in their stock price. On the flip side, there is also a bearish scenario, one in which Coinbase falls or even collapses. Actually, there are a few. Bearish Scenario for Coinbase
