Coinbase filed a motion against the SEC on April 25th
Overall, Coinbase’s shares have fallen more than 20% over the past month, dropping from a high of nearly $72 in April to $50.1 on Monday, May 1st.
The sharp drop in Coinbase’s stock price came amid ongoing actions against the exchange by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. On March 22nd, the securities regulator sent Coinbase a notice, suggesting enforcement action against the exchange.
In response, Coinbase filed a motion against the SEC on April 25th, asking the regulator to answer 50 questions about the regulatory treatment of certain digital assets. The case is still pending, and while we do not yet know the outcome, its continuation does not favorably affect Coinbase’s stock price.
