Inside the episode

This is our first time ever covering a TradFi stock! However, Coinbase is a different beast…

Coinbase is a behemoth of a company, growing since May of 2012. CEO Brian Armstrong has been on Bankless a number of times.

Today, we’re bringing on two analysts–independent researcher Jay (0xJaypeg) and Delphi Digital analyst Michael Rinko

Today’s episode will not be a history lesson on Coinbase, if you’re looking for that, we’ll highly recommend checking out Coinbase’s documentary: COIN: A FOUNDER'S STORY

Today’s episode is all about $COIN the asset. Down from its ATH of $342/share in Nov. 2021 to $85 today—and with a current market cap of $17.8B— are you bullish $COIN? Why or why not?
