The crypto exchange’s shares have fallen for the fourth session in a row, with over 26% in losses registered over the past five days.

Year-to-date, COIN has shed over 84% of its value, mirroring the bear market performance of Bitcoin (BTC/USD) that’s down nearly 5% in the past 24 hours and over 77% down since hitting its all-time high in November 2021.

Coinbase went public in April 2021, with its market cap above $85 billion.

However, after falling alongside the broader market amid the 2022 bear market, the past few weeks have triggered further investor apathy that now sees COIN at risk of breaking below $40.

And according to crypto analyst Dylan Leclair, the outlook for COIN and the current market jitters mean Coinbase is finding it difficult to attract investments.
