Cathie Wood continues to buy Coinbase shares after the collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX crypto-currency exchange. Known for hoarding shares during lows, Cathie Wood bought 420,949 Coinbase shares on Nov. 8 and 78,982 Coinbase shares on Dec. 12.

Coinbase’s share price fell to $38.69 on Tuesday. COIN’s share price jumps nearly 4 percent Wednesday to $40.19.

Tesla’s stock price has fallen below $160 amid fears of a potential recession, a hawkish Federal Reserve, and founder Elon Musk continues to reduce his stake in the EV maker.

Rise on bitcoin

Cathie Wood has clarified her view on the bitcoin price prediction. She said that she will maintain her prediction of reaching $1 million per coin by 2030.

She believes that institutional investors may backtrack on the accumulation of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Once institutional investors take their time and analyze the entry levels, they can buy Bitcoin with confidence. Furthermore, she stressed that the crypto market will recover despite the FTX collapse.

Bitcoin and Ethereum prices jumped above $18K and $1.35K on Wednesday in anticipation of a 50bp rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve. However, prices are sliding after Chairman Jerome Powell hinted at continued rate hikes and inflationary conditions in the market.
