(Reuters) -U.S. cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase (NASDAQ:) Global Inc on Thursday reported a third-quarter loss as high inflation, rising interest rates and geopolitical tensions weakened demand for risky assets, sapping trading volumes for digital currencies like bitcoin.

Coinbase said it had a net loss of $544.6 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, or $2.43 per diluted share, compared with a profit of $406.1 million, or $1.62 per diluted share, a year earlier.

Transaction revenue fell 64% from a year earlier to $365.9 million.

“Transaction revenue was significantly impacted by stronger macroeconomic and crypto market headwinds, as well as trading volume moving offshore,” the company said in a shareholder letter.

Net revenue was down 53.3% year-over-year at $576.4 million.
