Coinbase is considered the largest broker Bitcoin brand now servicing in total 32 countries. Though it can fall soon to 31 as Vogogo, their Canadian payment service, will be turned off. In addition to direct sales of Bitcoin on the current market bid (plus 1% of the fee) or the close to it, Coinbase simplifies trade with Bitcoin and Efirium (0,25% for dealers) on the exchange GDAX platform (Global Digital Asset Exchange).

Coinbase is often recommended to beginners as one of the easiest ways to acquire the first bitcoins. The company invested a lot of time and money to make their users pleasant and painless. Their extensive banking partnership allows to make transactions by means of payment of EFT, transmission of ACH/SWIFT/SEPA and as recent introduction, the main credit cards and PayPal.

It is no secret that Coinbase attracts a lot of hostility if not frank hostility. The search query of "Coinbase" on r/bitcoin Reddit opens the infinite complaints of users interspersed by the corresponding news soon. In response to such post from the commentator the lack of corn against a Coinbaza won't be found.

Now much like Bitcoin, offering a shelter from great and small tyrants of banks and corporate payment services. Any company which repeatedly enters such "user impressions" will inevitably face a heavy layer. To put it briefly, Coinbase is punished for the fact that they often behave as the most ominous banks.

However Coinbase has also pulled the share of the doubtful courses during the life.
