Traditionally, bitcoin specifically has gone by these two to a few 12 months cycles the place we see a interval of large enlargement and progress after which we see a 30-40% correction, generally even higher. So the danger right here is CoinBase might have a few of that very same volatility that bitcoin and different digital property have traditionally had.”
