Leading cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) recently revealed that it has entered into a partnership agreement with a fintech company, Alviere, to provide crypto services through Alviere’s embedded finance platform, The HIVE.
Following the news, shares of the company rose almost 4% on Thursday. The stock, however, pared its gains slightly to close at $190.05 in the extended trading session.
The partnership entails Coinbase offering its Coinbase Prime service to Alviere, which will allow the company access to Coinbase’s crypto infrastructure and integrate crypto services.
With this, users of Alviere’s programs will be able to buy, store and sell select digital assets like BTC, ETH, LTC and USDC.
The feature will initially go live only for Alviere’s program users in the United States.
The Head of Institutional Sales and Introducing Brokers at Coinbase, Guillaume Chatain, said, “Partnering with Alviere presents another opportunity for Coinbase to achieve its goal to make crypto an increasingly mainstream financial option for individuals, companies and other organizations. The Alviere team’s success developing an embedded finance platform made the company an ideal partner to bring crypto services to traditional brands.”
Recently, Citigroup analyst Peter Christiansen reiterated a Buy rating on the stock. The analyst, however, lowered the price target from $300 to $275, which implies upside potential of 44.6% from current levels.
Consensus among analysts is a Strong Buy based on 13 Buys, two Holds and one Sell. Coinbase’s average price target of $316.27 implies upside potential of 66.3% from current levels. Shares have declined 42.1% over the past year.
