Although the report posted US 840 million in net income and displayed a substantial increase of 7.4 million in monthly transactions users (MTU) in quarter three to 11.4 million in quarter four, the share prices of COIN in the market fell 4.7 percent in the post market trading. The company has also generated US 213 million which 9 percent of quarter four revenue from other sources like staking and lending which comes under non-trading products of the company.

This observation is the result of instability in the condition of the global market and economy. The company report also stated that it can expect a steady decline in the MTUs and their relevant revenue streams in the first quarter of 2022.
