Listen to this article

Coinbase Global Inc’s (NASDAQ:COIN) non fungible token marketplace has amassed more than one million emails just a day after launching the waiting list and it could be just a “business diversifier” the company needs, as per a leading cryptocurrency journalist.

What Happened: The Block Director of News Frank McChaparro said on Twitter that Coinbase’s NFT marketplace could do as well as OpenSea at its peak, noting that there could be duplicate emails “but this would be more than 3x OpenSea’s users at peak.”

“If they can actually launch this thing with this base of clients – that’s a ~$9bn a month business (if it can do as well as OpenSea at peak),” said McChaparro.

Why It Matters: Coinbase announced its intention to enter the NFT market Tuesday when it said it would launch Coinbase NFT that allows users to mint, collect and trade the digital tokens.

The heightened interest in Coinbase NFT is caused a load on the website’s servers, as per Coinbase’s Vice President of Product Sanchan Saxena.

As per Benzinga’s Melanie Schaffer, Coinbase’s current price could be a “steal” as the company’s share moves in tandem with BTC, which is predicted to hit a $500,000 mark in five years. 

At press time, BTC traded 3.14% higher at $58,047.74, while Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) traded 3.69% higher at $3,628.98.

Price Action: On Wednesday, Coinbase shares closed 1.02% lower at $246.78 in the regular session and rose nearly 0.5% in the after-hours trading.
