- For the full year, the company’s annual revenue forecast of less than $1.8 billion missed the Wall Street estimate of $2.03 billion.
- The company reported that cryptocurrency activity dropped from record highs posted in the prior quarter, leading to fewer new funded accounts, a decline in net cumulative funded accounts, and lower revenue in Q3 of 2021.
