IH Market News

Honeywell (NASDAQ:HON) – Honeywell announced the acquisition of CAES Systems for $1.9 billion, focusing on expanding its aerospace and defense technology operations.

Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) – Gilead Sciences closed up 8.5% on Thursday after a study showed its semi-annual antiviral injection, lenacapavir, effectively prevented HIV in all female participants tested in South Africa and Uganda.

Novo Nordisk A/S (NYSE:NVO) – The World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning about counterfeit batches of Novo Nordisk’s Ozempic, used for diabetes and obesity, found in Brazil, the UK, and the US.

Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) – Nvidia’s put options trading on Thursday saw significant volume, with 365,000 contracts at a $135 strike price and 250,000 at a $130 strike price. This increased the put-to-call ratio to 0.70 from 0.58 a few days prior. Volatility in Nvidia’s stock led to an intraday movement of over 6%, peaking and then falling 3.5%, closing at $130.78, putting Microsoft’s market capitalization back on top. Nvidia’s recent rise as the world’s most valuable company is driven by its AI chip leadership, with revenues expected to double to $120 billion. Despite risks of overvaluation and competition, investor optimism is sustained by the company’s innovation and profitability potential, with a P/E ratio starting the year at 25, now at 45, modestly above the five-year average of 41. However, not all investors are optimistic. Paul Wick of Seligman Investments has been reducing his Nvidia holdings due to concerns about profit growth prospects and high valuations. He compared Nvidia’s current situation to Cisco’s boom during the dot-com bubble, highlighting dependence on a few large customers as a significant risk. Nvidia shares fell 1.0% in pre-market trading.

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) – JPMorgan sees signs of recovery in the Chinese economy, which could revitalize its business in the country after a slow period.

Citigroup (NYSE:C) – US regulators rejected Citigroup’s recovery plan, known as a “living will,” which outlines procedures in case of bankruptcy. The decision, based on deficiencies in the bank’s data controls, raises doubts about Citi’s ability to reorganize without risks to the financial system.

Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) – Chipotle Mexican Grill shares fell 6.1% on Thursday ahead of its stock split, despite recent strong financial performance with rising revenues and profits.

Crypto.news 6/13/2024 article: Coinbase's State of Crypto report: Here's what we learned

" The exchange’s research struck a bullish tone, and noted that ETFs based on Bitcoin’s spot price in the U.S. have mopped up “significant pent-up demand” by allowing investors to gain exposure to the world’s biggest cryptocurrency. Assets under management in these funds now stands at $63 billion, with Coinbase anticipating a healthy appetite for Ether ETFs should they be given the green light by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Beyond this, it wasn’t the buoyant recovery in the crypto markets that was the focus of Coinbase’s report, but the high levels of enthusiasm for on-chain projects seen among some of America’s biggest businesses."

" The report also underlines how the tokenization of real-world assets has the potential to transform the global economy in the years to come. Here, top benefits and use cases that fascinate top execs include reduced transaction times, operational efficiencies, greater transparency, streamlined regulatory processes, and the ability to drag loyalty programs into the 21st century — enhancing engagement among target audiences. Coinbase cited figures that suggest the value of tokenized assets could hit $16 trillion by the start of the next decade. Illustrating how significant this is, the exchange pointed out that this is equivalent to the European Union’s GDP. "

" Returning to Coinbase and its report noted that on-chain government securities have emerged as an especially popular use case — with the value of tokenized U.S. Treasury products now hitting $1.29 billion, a 1,000% increase since the start of last year."

According to a statement on the X platform, the functionality has been restored with a single purchase limit of up to 5,000 euros, about $5,440, and $20,000 for transactions in U.S. dollars.

The company also plans to expand regulated payment options to further facilitate user transactions.

Bitcoin miner Bitdeer (NASDAQ:BTDR) has purchased ASIC chip designer Desiweminer in an all-stock deal valued at $140 million. The transaction, announced on June 3, involves 20 million Class A ordinary shares of BTDR. The Desiweminer team will join Bitdeer’s ASIC design team in Singapore, with combined products ready for immediate launch. This move comes after a $150 million investment from Tether in Bitdeer. In response to the announcement, BTDR shares rose about 6.3%, to $7.45, in Thursday’s trading.

Core Scientific rejects acquisition offer from Coreweave
Core Scientific (NASDAQ:CORZ), a prominent cryptocurrency miner, has declined an acquisition proposal from Coreweave valued at $5.75 per share. The board stated that the offer undervalues the company, considering its recent deals and growth projections. This announcement comes after Core Scientific overcame a bankruptcy petition and demonstrated a robust financial recovery in the first quarter of 2024.

Ark’s Cathie Wood withdraws from Ether ETF due to intense fee war
Cathie Wood of Ark Investment has abandoned the launch of an Ethereum ETF in the U.S., citing the competitive fee war as a decisive factor. At the Consensus conference, Wood revealed that Ark’s spot Bitcoin ETF, with a fee of 0.21%, was not profitable. With Grayscale setting higher fees and losing market leadership, the industry faces a race to offer low fees. Analysts view Ark’s exit as a response to reduced margins and potentially lower demand for Ether ETFs compared to Bitcoin ETFs.

Bitcoin ETFs record record inflows of $1.4 billion in two days
On June 5, Bitcoin ETFs recorded inflows of $488.1 million, marking 17 consecutive days of inflows, a new record. In the past two days, inflows totaled an impressive $1.4 billion. The Fidelity ETF (AMEX:FBTC) led with $220.6 million, followed by the BlackRock ETF (NASDAQ:IBIT) with $155.4 million. The ARK ETFs (AMEX:ARKB) and the Bitwise ETF (AMEX:BITB) registered $71.4 million and $18.5 million, respectively. The Grayscale ETF (AMEX:GBTC) recorded inflows of $14.6 million, but still faces a total net outflow of $17.9 billion.

Bitcoin volatility increases with futures expiration and high projections for 2024
Bitcoin (COIN:BTCUSD) is fluctuating around $71,000 this Thursday, hitting an intraday high of $71,650.56 and trading at $70,956 at the time of writing. Among the top 10 cryptocurrencies, all are experiencing slight declines, except Ether (COIN:ETHUSD), which is up over 1%, and Toncoin (COIN:TONCOINUSD), which is up over 3%. The price of ETH is $3,831, while Toncoin is valued at $7.43.

However, with $2.2 billion in futures options expiring on June 7, Bitcoin could fall below the psychological mark of $70,000. Of these, $1.22 billion are Bitcoin futures options, indicating a “maximum pain point” of $69,500. This expiration may increase Bitcoin’s price volatility, creating a scenario of uncertainty.

Parallelly, Fernando Pereira, analyst at Bitget, highlighted with optimism the positive correlation between the performance of the S&P 500 and the price of Bitcoin. He predicts that “a 2.5% to 5% rise in the S&P 500 in the coming days could drive BTC up about 12%, reaching $80,000”. Additionally, Geoffrey Kendrick, head of forex and digital assets research at Standard Chartered, also shares an optimistic view, predicting that Bitcoin could reach $100,000 before the U.S. presidential elections. Kendrick suggests that, should Trump win, the price could reach $150,000 by the end of the year, attributing this outlook to the political climate, recent regulatory decisions, and potential favorable economic data.

Franklin Templeton plans crypto fund for institutional investors
Franklin Templeton, a $1.6 trillion asset manager, is considering launching a private cryptocurrency fund, according to The Information. The fund, aimed at institutions, will focus on assets beyond bitcoin and ether, with the possibility of passing on staking rewards. The manager has previously taken initiatives in the digital asset sector, including a bitcoin ETF and a tokenized government bond fund.

Tim Draper recommends Bitcoin for treasury diversification after SVB collapse
Venture capitalist Tim Draper suggests that companies diversify their treasuries by including Bitcoin (COIN:BTCUSD) as protection against banking risks. This recommendation follows the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in March 2023, which severely impacted several startups, including cryptocurrency clients. Draper proposes that companies split their capitals between large banks, smaller banks, and Bitcoin to avoid similar challenges in the future. This method offers a safety net, allowing operations to continue even in financial crises.

High short positions in MicroStrategy signal potential volatility
Analyses of net short positions released by Fintel reveal that MicroStrategy (NASDAQ:MSTR) faces high exposure to short selling, representing 23.14% of its market capitalization, indicating strong bearish sentiment. In contrast, Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) and Marathon Digital (NASDAQ:MARA) show lower exposure, with 1.77% and 1.68%, respectively. These positions may reflect hedging strategies, especially in contexts where companies maintain long positions in Bitcoin (COIN:BTCUSD), as is the case with Kerrisdale Capital.

SushiSwap expands to Bitcoin’s Rootstock sidechain
The decentralized exchange SushiSwap (COIN:SUSHIUSD) now operates on Bitcoin’s Rootstock sidechain, seeking to integrate DeFi features into the BTC ecosystem.

JPMorgan evaluates regulatory trend against crypto and CBDC in the U.S.
According to a report by JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM), cryptocurrency regulations in the U.S. are taking a restrictive direction, especially against the launch of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) and the adoption of cryptocurrencies by local banks. The report highlights that non-compliant stablecoins, such as tether (COIN:USDTUSD), are also under increasing scrutiny. The Payment Stablecoins Clarity Act, which favors regulated stablecoins, has a better chance of approval before the presidential elections. Other initiatives, including the FIT21 Act and regulations that make it difficult for banks to custody crypto assets, face significant challenges to be implemented.

CoinDesk Article 6/6/2024: Coinbase Wallet Adds Crypto Trading Alerts From Notifi By Danny Nelson

" Users of Coinbase's mobile crypto wallet can now get automated alerts of what's happening on-chain via messaging service Notifi.

Perpetuals exchange GMX is the service's first client, according to a press release. Customers of the Arbitrum- and Avalanche-based platform will receive notifications about pending liquidations and governance updates, and can also design their own automated flags."

UNCHAINED 6/5/2024 article: Coinbase Launches its Smart Wallets, Dubbing It Crypto's 'IPhone Moment" by Sage D. Young

On Wednesday, crypto heavyweight Coinbase announced the rollout of its smart wallets, which it is calling web3’s “iPhone moment” to onboard more than a billion users onchain, said Luke Youngblood, founder of Base-native lending application Moonwell in an interview with Unchained.

Rather than using a traditional wallet typically in the form of an application or browser extension that is reliant on passwords, third-party installations, or seed phrases to recover one’s private key, users can use smart wallets which gain security from passkeys.

A traditional wallet depends on a private key to sign, while smart wallets use passkeys that often depend on biometric identification to sign transactions, such as facial recognition or a fingerprint. The rollout of smart wallets is a move expected to simplify the onboarding experience of new users who are not crypto native.

“Onchain app developers today lose many of their many new users during the onboarding process when they leave the app to go install and fund a separate wallet,” wrote Coinbase senior director of product management Sid Coelho-Prabhu in the announcement.

Smart wallets enable people without crypto wallets to get one quickly and jump into using an application. As part of the effort to bring more users onchain, Base is also supplying gas credits to help developers sponsor the transactions of their application’s users. Of the several ways to earn gas credits, one way a developer can get $15,000 worth of sponsored gas, according to Moonwell’s Youngblood, is putting a “Create Wallet” button on their application.

Alternatively, to gain $1,000 worth of sponsored gas a developer can release a demo of their Coinbase Smart wallet integration, according to information platform smartwallet.dev.

“When the iPhone was launched into the 2000s and the 2010s, it took off. All of a sudden, anyone could use apps without having to buy a computer,” Youngblood added, “We feel really strongly this is going to cross the chasm from DeFi and onchain finance being this niche tool only usable by wealthy people in developed countries like ours to broad mainstream adoption.”
New Login Mechanism

Passkeys were developed by Apple, Google Microsoft, and the FIDO Alliance to act as a new method of logging in.

“Passkeys are generated on your device and are not shared or stored on any server, according to a Coinbase blog post.”The public key is stored securely on Coinbase servers, while the private key is securely stored on your device, protected by your device’s native authentication method, such as biometrics (e.g., Face ID or fingerprint) or a PIN.”

The announcement comes as a different Coinbase initiative is attracting substantial mindshare among those in the crypto ecosystem, namely, its layer 2 blockchain network Base, which has crossed 10 million total users in less than one year since launch and nearly 321,000 daily users on a seven-day rolling average as of Tuesday. Despite the rapid growth, Base’s total number of users is still a fraction of Coinbase’s 110 million.

Moonwell, the fourth largest protocol on Base with a total value locked of almost $95 million, is a day-one launch partner of Coinbase’s smart wallets, meaning users who already have smart wallets can interact with Moonwell onchain without paying gas fees on Wednesday.

Coinbase’s smart wallets is supported on a number of blockchain networks such as Base, Arbitrum, and Avalanche. While the base layer of Ethereum is also supported, it is “not preferred for use, due to gas cost,” according to a website dedicated to smart wallets.

COINTELEGRAPH 6/5/2024 article: Coinbase rolls out smart wallet with no gas fees and easy onboarding by Derek Andersen

Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is launching a smart wallet. The new Coinbase Wallet will offer users greater convenience through onboarding, eliminating gas fees and making recovery phrases unnecessary.

The smart wallet will allow users to create a new wallet and onboard onto a blockchain without downloading a new app or receiving a new recovery phrase. Instead, the smart wallet will integrate with major apps and use Face ID, users’ Google Chrome profile, fingerprint ID or Yubikey to onboard through a passkey that will be stored on users’ devices.

The smart wallet will have self-custody and permit payments from the user’s Coinbase Wallet or Coinbase account. Developers will be able to choose to waive gas fees by sponsoring the transaction through a paymaster.

A companion web app will be the user’s primary platform and will offer asset and identity management, buying, sending, swapping, nonfungible tokens and transaction history. Coinbase promises “a fluid and intuitive experience” throughout those transactions.

At the start, the smart wallet will support the Base, Ethereum, Optimism, Arbitrum, Polygon, Avalanche, BNB Chain and Zora networks. The smart wallet will be free for both users and developers. Coinbase said in a post on its Canadian blog:

“This simplicity, combined with multi-chain support and integration with major applications, will make onboarding to the blockchain as effortless as signing into your favorite website.”

Current users will be able to use the new wallet “in the coming months” after it finalizes all migration tools.

Station Labs Leadership to Join Coinbase to Make Smart Wallets the Default
Tl;dr: Coinbase is doubling down on smart wallets by bringing onboard the leadership of Station Labs, who have deep expertise in building onchain developer tools.
By Coinbase Company, June 4, 2024

Top talent is one of Coinbase’s core cultural tenets. We believe that having exceptional people in every seat is vital to achieving our mission of increasing economic freedom in the world by bringing the world onchain.

In pursuit of bringing in top onchain talent, today we’re excited to announce that the founders of Station Labs will be joining Coinbase to work on Base, the Smart Wallet, and our onchain developer product suite. As a team of deeply onchain-native builders, Station’s founders will leverage their unique expertise with complex concepts such as smart wallets and account abstraction to help accelerate and expand our onchain developer product suite.

One of the biggest barriers to growing onchain adoption is the complexity of onboarding for both consumers and developers. Station’s founders have extensive experience building tooling for developers and creators to integrate core onchain primitives such as wallets, token-based experiences, and abstracting away gas fees for consumers.

We’re thrilled to bring in the Station team at a critical and exciting time for our onchain product suite. As Base and the broader L2 ecosystem continue to grow, we’re committed to providing developers with easy-to-use tooling to lower the barriers for consumers with phraseless, gasless, onchain experiences. Station’s founders represent some of the brightest minds in the onchain tools space and we look forward to working with them to bring the next generation of builders onchain.

Decrypt Article by Andre Beganski 5/31/2024 Coinbase Accuses SEC of Purposeful Effort to Destroy Crypto

In its efforts to clarify new rules for the crypto industry, Coinbase on Friday accused the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of trying to smother an emerging industry.

In a court filing, America’s leading crypto exchange described a “Catch-22” that U.S. crypto firms are confronted with. At the same time the SEC is calling on crypto firms to come into compliance with securities laws, the agency has allegedly refused to offer “needed” rulemaking.

Combined with “scorched-earth litigation” against companies that can’t satisfy the SEC’s requests, Coinbase accused the regulator of causing crypto firms intentional harm.

PYMNTS: Coinbase Diversifies Revenue Sources as Digital Asset Trading Matures

Digital assets have experienced a significant year, with the market moving toward mainstream adoption.

This shift has resulted in a decrease in price volatility, which had been a key attraction for many investors, Bloomberg reported Thursday (May 30).

As a result, the largest U.S. crypto exchange, Coinbase, has experienced a decline in consumer trading volume and a potential shake-up in its revenue sources, according to the report.

Volatility in the digital asset market has significantly decreased in recent times. According to researcher CCData, the average volatility for digital assets dropped to 57% this year, compared to around 79% in 2021, the report said.

This decrease in volatility is seen as a sign of market maturation, as it attracts fewer speculative traders, per the report.

Coinbase, like other exchanges, relies on trading-fee revenue generated from the trading volume of cryptocurrencies. However, the decline in volatility has resulted in lower trading volumes, impacting the revenue of exchanges, according to the report.

Coinbase’s consumer trading volume in the first quarter of this year was $56 billion, compared to a peak of $177 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. The creation of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and the overall market maturation have contributed to this decline in trading volume.

To mitigate the impact of decreased trading-fee revenue, exchanges like Coinbase have diversified their revenue sources, the report said. Coinbase generated about a third of its sales in the first quarter of this year from sources other than trading fees. These sources include revenue share on USDC stablecoin and revenue from its Base blockchain.

The company also serves as the custodian for most U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs and is listed as a custodian for spot Ether ETFs that are expected to be okayed by regulators, per the report.

While Coinbase’s trading-fee revenue is expected to be lower than the peak of 2021, the company’s overall outlook remains positive, according to the report.

Net income is projected to increase 20 times this year compared to 2023. The sustainability of the current bull market and Coinbase’s ability to maintain spot market share will be crucial factors in determining its future revenue. Additionally, Coinbase’s diversification efforts and its role as a custodian for ETFs position the company for potential revenue growth in the long term.

In a recent social media post, Fred Ehrsam, co-founder of Coinbase and crypto investment firm Paradigm, predicts that the cryptocurrency market will continue to gain momentum due to the growing influence of younger generations. He points out that ownership of crypto assets is currently highest among the 18-45 age group, with a significant drop-off after the age of 65. Similarly, politicians and policymakers who support or oppose crypto holdings follow a similar demographic trend. Ehrsam believes that as these young supporters grow in wealth and political power, the demand for and acceptance of cryptocurrency will only increase, driving its continued growth and adoption.

A key crypto bill is set for a House vote tomorrow. The Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21)

FROM COINBASE BYTES: 5/21/2024

Inside the bill that could shape the future of the U.S. crypto industry

Even though nearly 20% of Americans have purchased crypto, and many of the world’s most innovative crypto companies are based here, the United States lags far behind most developed economies when it comes to crypto regulation.

This week, however, Congress is finally poised to vote on a landmark piece of legislation that would create a comprehensive, federal regulatory regime for crypto in the U.S.

The Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21) has been hailed by cosponsor Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) as the “culmination of years of bipartisan efforts to finally provide clarity.” And in a recent town hall meeting, Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.) praised the bill for offering “regulatory clarity where none exists. It protects both consumers and investors.”

Among many other things, the bill would clarify questions around which agencies have the responsibility to regulate various aspects of the crypto industry, create consumer protections for the 52 million Americans who own crypto, and give web3 developers looking to launch projects in the U.S. clear rules of the road.

In advance of the vote, which is expected to take place on Wednesday, here’s what you need to know.

Why is FIT21 important?

Given the U.S. is home to both Wall Street and Silicon Valley, it’s unsurprising that it’s grown into a global crypto hub. But the chaotic regulatory picture here — especially as compared to regions including the U.K., the EU, and some parts of Asia that have made significant strides in providing clarity — means crypto companies and innovators are increasingly looking outside the U.S.

An estimated 2% of web3 developers have been leaving the U.S. annually due to potential risks around basing a digital asset project here, and around 4 million blockchain-related jobs are at risk over the next 5-to-7 years.

Coinbase supports FIT21, saying the bill “offers a strong regulatory framework providing clear definitions, consumer protections, and a path for regulation that does not stifle innovation.”

Here are some of FIT21’s major provisions:

FIT21 would clarify which agency has regulatory jurisdiction over different parts of the crypto ecosystem.

Currently, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) both claim jurisdiction to regulate the crypto industry, and the fractured landscape makes it difficult for crypto companies to operate amid limited and confusing guidance and heavy-handed enforcement actions.

FIT21 would clarify that the CFTC has jurisdiction over digital commodities, while the SEC’s jurisdiction would be focused on digital assets offered as part of an investment contract.

How would crypto commodities and securities be defined?

In very basic terms, it comes down to decentralization. As a16z crypto’s FIT21 explainer puts it, the CFTC would regulate a digital asset as a commodity “if the blockchain, or digital ledger, on which it runs is functional and decentralized.” (Disclosure: a16z is a Coinbase investor.)

The SEC would regulate a digital asset as a security “if its associated blockchain is functional but not decentralized.”

The bill also provides a definition for decentralization, including the requirement that no individual can control the blockchain and that “no issuer or affiliated person” controls more than 20% of the project’s digital assets or voting power.

The bill would also create new consumer protections for crypto users.

The legislation helps protect consumers by requiring increased transparency and accountability from the crypto industry.

Digital-asset institutions like crypto exchanges would be required to segregate customer funds from their own, provide appropriate disclosures to customers, and reduce potential conflicts of interest through registration and operational requirements.

The bill would also require digital asset developers to provide accurate information about their project’s operations, ownership, and structure. It also requires lock-up periods for tokens issued to insiders.

Who supports this bill?

FIT21 passed out of two committees last July with bipartisan support, and is now advancing to a full House vote with supporters on both sides of the aisle.

Rep. McHenry, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, has made passing FIT21 a top priority for 2024 during his final term in Congress before retiring. Meanwhile, a letter from eight House Democrats this week said that the bill would “promote a secure, innovative, and inclusive financial future.”

Can FIT21 pass in the House of Representatives?

Yes, it’s definitely possible. This past Thursday, another crypto-related bill (which would overturn a controversial SEC rule that makes it harder for banks to handle crypto customers) garnered support from 12 Democrats and 48 Republicans in the U.S. Senate, which has some observers hopeful that similar levels of bipartisan support are possible for FIT21.

“There’s still some big names on the Democratic side who haven’t made their thoughts known,” said Rep. Wiley Nickel (D-N.C.). “The advice I’m giving Democrats is, we cannot hand this issue to Republicans.”

What could happen next?

If FIT21 passes in the House, that alone represents a huge step forward. The bill’s next stop would be the Senate, which could approach the legislation in a variety of ways. Aside from a straightforward vote, one possible approach comes from Rep. French Hill (R-Ark.), who is in line to succeed Rep. McHenry as chair of the Financial Services Committee. Hill has suggested tying FIT21 to one of Congress’s larger spending bills before the end of the year.

The bottom line…

There aren’t many issues more important to the future of the U.S. crypto industry than regulatory clarity — and FIT21 would make major strides in that direction.

" Cryptocurrency prices jumped Friday as bitcoin surged back near $67,000. Institutional investors poured hundreds of millions of dollars into spot bitcoin ETFs this past week. That could propel bitcoin toward its record highs as early as next week, one analyst said. Meanwhile, COIN stock surged after Coinbase received an upgrade and major price target hike from BofA."

" BofA on Friday upgraded Coinbase (COIN) to neutral from underperform, The Fly reported. The current macroeconomic environment has been positive for crypto market cap gains and trading volume growth, the firm wrote. Meanwhile, Coinbase has shown expense discipline and benefited from greater operating leverage after large cost cuts in 2022. BofA expects the greater operating leverage to help maintain profitability. Coinbase's increase in revenue distribution should also dampen earnings volatility, the firm added. BofA hiked its price target to 217 from 110 — a level that Coinbase had run past in November.

COIN stock jumped 4.2% Friday on the upgrade. Shares are trading below their 10-week moving averages after steadily falling from the two-year high of 283.48 in late March. Still, Coinbase stock rallied about 19.4% so far this year."

She might be strong minded, which could be a bad thing when investing other people's $$.

I'm not impressed with any of their funds performance:

ARK FUNDS > Click on Performance. Since Inception column.

Not sure why you want to talk her up on the COIN thread either.

It's three fold now.

How do you know Cathie Woods is more successful than me?

AND

That Cathie Woods is more successful than 99% of men on the planet?

AND

That Cathie Woods has 10 digits in her bank account?

I can this with 100% certainty. NO ONE OWNS ME!

Go Woke Go Broke.

DEI is bullshit.

COIN is taking a nice hit.

How do I know what? Why ARK dominated last bullrun? Why ARK bottomed? Or why she's more successful than 99% of men on the planet?...
Well, 👇
1. ARK highs. Her investments include highly speculative assets like A.I., Blockchain, Pharmas, etc. All bullruns induce a self imposed confidence on deep pockets and deep pockets invest in tomorrow. As all good traders should. Just like us here in COIN.
2. ARK bottomed because everything did. The higher the risk of any specific asset during a bear market, the more it bleeds. This is a no brainer and comes with experience.
3. Neither you nor me nor anyone on ihub is friends with someone who has 10 digits in their bank account. If you hang out with Billionaires or are one, you're not on ihub. Everyone on this platform will wholeheartedly agree.
Anymore questions then ask your financial advisor.
4. Never underestimate the power of a strong minded woman. SHE WILL OWN YOU!
BUY TO HOLD.

There's a reason why ARK dominated all the etf's amidst the height of last bullrun. There's also a reason why they've bottomed out. Your point is mute. Speculative = speculative and as far as i can tell, shes more successful than you and me combined. Next...
