The popular trading platform recorded a dip in crypto-related revenues on its platform that brought in lesser funds in that expected.

Coinbase transaction revenues slid down by 44 percent in the third quarter of 2022. Between July and September, Coinbase managed to churn $365.9 million (roughly Rs. 3,022 crore).

Out of Robinhood's net revenue of $361 million (roughly Rs. 2,980 crore), crypto activities only managed to fetch $51 million (roughly Rs. 420 crore) over the past quarter.
