JPMorgan’s Previous Concerns

Prior to the upgrade, JPMorgan had expressed concerns about the Bitcoin enthusiasm, attributing it to unrealistic optimism surrounding the approval and launch of U.S. spot Bitcoin ETFs. However, the analysts acknowledged that the initial “sell-the-news” event turned into significant Bitcoin price appreciation.

Impact of Bitcoin Appreciation

JPMorgan believes that the appreciation in Bitcoin is contributing to improved spot Bitcoin ETF flows, subsequently driving Bitcoin prices higher and positively influencing other tokens as well.

Positive Outlook for Coinbase

With the recent acceleration in flows into Bitcoin ETFs and the substantial price appreciation of Bitcoin and Ethereum, JPMorgan anticipates sustained and improved activity levels and earnings power for Coinbase due to the higher cryptocurrency prices.
