Just being honest!!!
I love everything about Coinbase and what it stands for.. However, you all are making it hard for me.. To compete against Robinhood, Cashapp, Tdameritrade, and soon to be Fidelity; please find a way to get rid of these fees to buy into the market.. Maybe keep the selling or converting fees.. But, we need more people in the market and the fees are not helping.. Please go public soon.. Merge with Square or buy them if possible.. Or, merge with Facebook as that would allow Basebook to be an industry leader in crypto and p2p transfers and transactions... Most important, I currently use yahoo finance to manage and see my average cost and gains or losses for all my different crypto investments.. I would love if Coinbase would incorporate my average cost per coin.. Also, add in my daily and total gains and losses.. I should not have to use a third party site to manage investments that I purchased on your site.. Lastly, please add custom alerts for all of the crypto’s offered on the platform... We only have the ability right now to set custom alerts for three assets and again I have to use a third party site for the others.. I would love for Coinbase to be my source for everything crypto...
Beware of Coinbase
When I first bought bitcoin through Coinbase it was put on a 12 day hold. The funds cleared from my bank account after 3 days, and I had to wait 9 more days before I could do anything with my currency. I contacted customer service, and the representative said he didn’t know why my funds were on a long hold, but made it out like it was because I had just created my account - a fraud prevention method. So I accepted that, and decided I wanted to buy more crypto today. I went on the support page and read through the guidelines again; it said I was able to transfer or withdraw once the funds had cleared from my account - so 3-5 days, possibly 7-10 if there is a weekend or holiday. Fair enough. So I bought some bitcoin, and now it says it’s on a 12 day hold! So apparently that’s the default on my account every time I want to buy any crypto. What?! No where was I told that my account would have some default holding period, on the website or by customer service. I know that it will again clear from my bank in the next 3-5 days, then I will just have to sit on it for a week or more for no good reason. To top it all off, I’ve been emailing customer service and it’s like I’m not even talking to a human. They just give these generic, scripted responses, whereby they reiterate the same guidelines I previously read, that are obviously false! There are plenty of services out there that are way less of a headache; save yourself time and stress and use a different wallet!
Generally great, but with issues
I mostly had no problems, but the loss of $25 litecoin because of an error & dropping my card limit for no reason given, has really bothered me. I am now wary of transactions. Plus, $100 a week limit‽ I'm not waiting what can be weeks from the bank. They took cases on both and didn't do anything. The first though, before these cases, they were really helpful, when losing money. So, at first I thought that they'd be able to help me with the litecoin, and at least my card limit. At least send me back the value of the lowest amount on the day I withdrew or something. Just something, and $350 (I think it was) was at least something I could work with. Now, I'm going to have to use multiple exchanges. Just a sugesstion. I really enjoy the Coinbase earn, but doing the the order of the rewards makes you think you should take them first, nope do not do that or you can't get rewards. Then the wording can be misinterpreted unless you read a link in a link that explains it first, which is unintuitive. It's courteous to do earn, but saying the opening up new lessons thing made no sense. Otherwise, it's an excellent way to trade low values of money. It's just you have to be careful.
