Full-Year 2021 Outlook

Our approach to public outlooks will be to provide transparency consistent with the internal plans we use to manage our business. Given the inherent unpredictability of our business mentioned above, we are providing a range of possible scenarios for full-year 2021:

2021 Annual Average MTU possible scenarios

Our transaction revenue is currently highly correlated to MTUs. Looking to full year 2021, we present three possible scenarios for annual average MTU:

  • High: Average 2021 MTUs of 7.0 million. This scenario assumes an increase in crypto market capitalization and moderate-to-high crypto asset price volatility. In this scenario, we expect that MTUs continue to grow for the remainder of 2021.
  • Mid: Average 2021 MTUs of 5.5 million. This scenario assumes flat crypto market capitalization and low-to-moderate crypto asset price volatility. This scenario assumes a modest decline in MTUs from Q1 2021.
  • Low: Average 2021 MTUs of 4.0 million. This scenario assumes a significant decrease in crypto market capitalization, similar to the decrease observed in 2018, and low levels of crypto asset price volatility thereafter. In this scenario, we assume MTUs will decrease in a corresponding manner and end 2021 at similar levels to Q4 2020.

Institutional Revenue

We expect meaningful growth in 2021 driven by transaction and custody revenue given the increased institutional interest in the crypto asset class. However, our institutional revenue is inherently unpredictable given the factors listed above.
