Coinbase is scam friends! never trade with coinbase! I have a better way. Buy or sell bitcoins online without verification and registration from https://liviacoins.com They offer great prices and very fast services!

Switch to a different cryptocurrency exchange immediately. When the system works, it works. When it doesn't work, NO customer support. Run away. I'm trying Kraken. We'll see how that goes.

ATTENTION CANADIANS!!! Do yourselves a favor and avoid using Coinbase if you wish to use the exchange to sell BTC. Coinbase does not offer Canadians a SELL option. I wish someone would have pointed this out to me before I transferred a number of bitcoins to them. After your BTC land easily in your Coinbase wallet (no restrictions incoming) you will find that you are severely restricted as to how many you can send back out. I am currently restricted to sending $1200 a day back to my core wallet. I sent my Coinbase wallet over $40,000 worth of bitcoins. At this rate I will be paying a large number of transaction fees to get my Bitcoins back. It will take me over a month to get my BTC back not to mention that I could have been trading elsewhere with these coins. Coinbase has caused me significant financial loss by not clearly stating on their website that the SELL option is NOT available to Canadians. The customer service at Coinbase takes several days according to their website. I guess I'm the idiot in this case for trusting the largest North-American exchange. Just because they allow you to send them your BTC for 'safekeeping' doesn't mean they will treat you with dignity or necessarily allow you to take advantage of their services.

I am writing a reveiw regards to Coinbase and I feel it is certainly necessary! My main priority is to be as honest as possible to help others make a sensible decision going forward as I can see there are hundreds if not thousands of reviews that can make your mind go all over the place ! I decided not so long ago that I would like to get involved with bitcoin and ethereum and other crypto currencies and that I have a solid bit of money aside that I am willing to risk ! After educating my self like every newbie does about wallets etc and where to buy BTC and ETH and where to store it ! It certainly become aparant to me that knowwhere can be safe storing your crypto coins as hacking seems to be happening more than rainy days in london ! With a respectful amount of money now converted in to crypto , I am sure you can appreciate that worrying about being hacked was certainly crossing my mind constantly ! So now after being excited in getting involved with crypto my experience is turning in to a panic of being hacked or the exchange or hot wallet which is holding my coins being hacked ! So at the time I was holding my bitcoin in blockchain.info and also was reading how they were hacked ! I educated my self further and had seen how bitpay had been hacked which also was a place where my coins were stored ! This allowed to just think know where is safe ! I was reluctant to put anything in with coinbase as I could see endless amounts of reviews and to be honest 90% were bad reviews ! How ever I could see they are a legit company and with a hefty amount of backing so I couldn't work it out how ever you have to believe reviews right ? How ever they had never been hacked directly ! And I can see they offered (offer something which I needed ! A vault for my bitcoin ! I took a leap of faith and transfered all my crypto there eth and btc and put the btc in the multi sig vault as it clearly said this vault choice gives me full control which is what I wanted and is also hack proof and if coinbase goes bust I'm covered ! Also the fact that all digital currencies are insured ! So for me it made sense to have all my crypto there because god forbid something goes wrong I am covered unlike other places! Any with all the bad reviews I still wasn't convinced I made the right decision ! So after a little while passing with my eth in the wallet of coinbase and btc in the vault , lots of articles on google circling about coinbase and their complaints list is through the roof ! I honestly worried and though I am screwed and I won't get my money out ! So I though you know what let's try and withdraw all my eth and see what happens ! So I did ! And it worked immediately and landed in my other wallet straight away πŸ˜… Releif ! Next ! I started reading about the multi sig and honestly that's when I thought I messed up as I could see the reviews were horrible and many amounts of people stating they can't get to their crypto when they wished to do so ! I submitted my withdraw from the multi signajd as stated before hand while creating the safe that any withdraw has to go through the process of 2 days before being released ! So I waited patiently and anxiously waiting for the 2 days to arrive ! When the 2 days was complete it then went to pending mode ! As stated in their website ! Still for some reason after seeing reviews again I panicked and thought I am screwed my money is gone ! After 20 mins by bitcoin balance is updated I then test withdraw the full amount and no problem at all! Yes like all these exchanges there is a feee for the transfer ! But tbh I couldn't care less ! Moral of the story ! Coinbase is bloody brilliant ! And can't recommend them enough and I'm actually shocked about these endless reviews because I actually put it to the test for myself and am so glad I did ! Coinbase is brilliant safe efficient and secure ! Any tips to people that have had a bad experience or to new investors using them for the first time is to not associate your account with any gambling and make sure you verify your account fully with documents just like you would with any regulated financial institute ! Apologies if any grammar is not on point ! I am typing this on my phone and I it's a long review and tbh I can't be bothered to go over my review again to check for mistakes :)

the worst cryptocurrency exchange ever. insanely slow. massive greed with high transaction fee. No customer service at all. i send tens of help requests and they get back to me after 2 months. i had a very bad experience with them and finally I stopped using them at all which I highly recommend for all my fellow cryptofriends. I expect they will go out of business by 2019 when another cryptocurreny exchange with similar business model opens in the US. If i could do it, I would rate them zero star. they very bad, greedy and disrespectful people.

BUY BITCOIN AT CHEAPER RATE My name is Laura Jones. I am a bitcoin merchant. I have a large amount of bitcoin to trade on cryptocurrency websites. But due to scams and delays in receiving payments on cryptocurrency websites, i decided to switch to peer-to-peer method of trading bitcoin by selling directly to individuals at lower rates below the official market price of bitcoin. I sell 1 bitcoin at $2500. Buyers from 5 bitcoins upwards will get it at discount price of $2000 for 1 bitcoin. Check my bitcoin wallet address 18rnfoQgGo1HqvVQaAN4QnxjYE7Sez9eca on blockchain.info for proof of recent transactions and balance. Contact me on laurajones@tuta.io Thanks.

STAY AWAY FROM COINBASE!!! THEY STOLE MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT!!! THEY ALSO TRIED TO TAKE $2500 OUT OF MY CHECKING BUT I WAS ABLE TO BLOCK ALL TRANSACTIONS FROM COINBASE BEFORE THEY WERE ABLE TO DEPOSIT INTO MY COINBASE ACCOUNT WHICH WAS SUSPENDED!!! THEY SUSPEND YOUR ACCOUNT THEN TRY TO STEAL YOUR MONEY!!! IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS EVER SUSPENDED YOU MUST CALL YOUR BANK AND HAVE THEM BLOCK ALL TRANSACTIONS FROM COINBASE.COM!!!

If banks provided the same service as Coinbase, I am suspect that fines would be imposed upon Coinbase. Coinbase made 3 unauthorized charges to my credit card for $600. In addition, I have not been able to sell the tokens I purchased on Coinbase because their App and website will not function properly. I have sent at least five requests for help with no response. I wonder whether Congress or a federal regulator is aware of the problems people have expressed on this website. To make matters worse, I went to coinbase's headquarters address listed on its website to only find a shut down store front. I have decided to write my Congressional representatives and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. l am hoping that helps. Americans need an exchange that they can rely upon with live customer support. We now have another market where average Americans can not participate in the opportunity to create wealth.

Scammers. My first purchase was duplicated, so instead of investing 1000€ I had 2000€. Then they sold automatically my ETHs when arrived to 700€... Surprise! I tried to buy back, but then said I have no EURs... When I complained they blocked my account, and after several weeks, they reactivated it and magically is working now. Of course, ETH raised and I lost most of my money... A completely scam. BTW they are the same as GDAX.

Stay away from these scammers I deposited Β£10 they charged me a Β£1 for the privalige then I made a payment for Β£5 and they charged me Β£4 total rip off

yea be very careful with this company. YOU CANT GET YOUR MONEY OUT AND THERE IS NO SUPPORT!!! STAY AWAY!!!!

- August 23, 2017
Looks like a scam to me...and I have seen scams before. So easy to deposit money and get yourself verified and easy to trade within their website...however, try getting money out. Support is non-existent, no phone number to contact anyone. Why would a company, who apparently have received large funding, not have a support line to quickly resolve queries.

- August 19, 2017
Terrible. No response to multiple email requests. No way to contact by phone.

Total scam for Canadians! They take your money but you can never withdraw! Zero support! Illegal operator.

I signed up with Coinbase a few weeks ago. I must say that the experience with that exchange is more than unsatisfactory. The limits imposed make it virtually impossible to make any gains in this booming crypto currency market. I since have have signed up with Kraken, which has a speedy verification process, thus allowing me to make trades commensurate with the level of funding I desire. If you want to deal in pennies, stay with Coinbase.

I received a text that my account withdrawal was being delayed as anomaly detected. I was sleeping.I didn't make any transaction request. I read the text 40 minutes after it was sent and Coinbase allowed hacker to withdraw 5 ETH, over $1000.00 within 29 minuted of their first warning. They said the hacker initially tried to clear out the account but they stopped it. Then they went ahead and allowed the smaller withdrawal from a Computer logged in from Amsterdam. So, Coinbase responds to customers in 24-48 hours if you are lucky but Coinbase customers only have less than 30 minutes to respond to a warning or they will allow hacker to have at it. 2F authy failed to protect me and my phone was not ported. And now, Coinbase says its my fault. WTF?
