In the first quarter, Coinbase recorded $1.6 billion in total revenue and $1.2 billion in net income, achieving $1 billion in Adjusted EBITDA. Notably, this marks a significant increase from its adjusted EBITDA of $977.5 million in 2023. The net Coinbase Q1 earnings benefited from $737 million in pre-tax unrealized gains on crypto assets.

Capital and Liabilities

Ending the quarter with $7.1 billion in capital, Coinbase saw an increase in total liabilities from $200.7 million in Q1 2023 to $339.9 million in Q1 2024. The firm raised $1.1 billion in net cash through the sale of 2030 convertible notes.

Institutional transactions generated $85 million in revenue, representing a 133% increase quarter over quarter. Trading volume on Coinbase Prime, the platform for institutional clients, grew by 105% to $256 billion.

“Our institutional platform, Coinbase Prime, hit all-time highs in trading volume and the number of active clients in Q1. […] The bitcoin ETFs – combined with strong market conditions in Q1 – unlocked a flywheel of customer engagement across this more robust product suite. In fact, nearly 40% of institutional clients engaged with at least 3 products in Q1.”

Custodial Services and Assets Under Custody

Revenue from custodial services experienced a notable 64% increase, amounting to $32 million in the first quarter.
