I am thinking about estimating the yearly revenue/profit and project this into future.
Specifically, I can estimate the number of users and the amount of fee they charge per user. However, I need to make a tons of assumptions (average amount of transactions per day, average value per transaction, customer growth, etc.)
Are there other ways to evaluate these companies?

What are you using this for? Don’t fool yourself into thinking that a more detailed build is more accurate. If you’re just trying to ball park growth and run a few scenarios, maybe stick with users and revenue per user. I’d also be surprised if you couldn’t find ball park numbers for coinbase trading volume, etc., which could potentially allow you to ballpark another layer of drivers in your build. But simple is usually better if you don’t have much supporting data.
