I am in no way defending Coinbase, but I just want to caution that there are a lot of smear campaigns going around (some against Coinbase) because of the hard fork on August 1st, 2017 and subsequent support by some companies of Bitcoin Cash. These accusations could be legitimate, but I always read these headlines with a grain of salt because there were people organizing FUD campaigns.

I ordered some Ethereum a couple years back through Coinbase. The transaction was never executed and somehow got deleted. I didn't find out for several months. I thought I'd gone a little bit crazy and was kicking myself because I thought I'd placed the order but there was no record of it and the value had gone up ~2000%.

Finally, one day I got an email from Coinbase saying they'd discovered an error and were willing to reinstate the lost transaction. Ultimately, they corrected their mistake--essentially giving me tens of thousands of dollars-worth of ETH with no risk exposure.

Who knows how they'd have played it if the value had tanked in the intervening months but at the time they dealt honestly with me.

This is absolutely something to entertain. BTC vs BCH is getting very heated and the BTC camp has adopted a libtardesque strategy of no-holds-barred, end-justifies-the-means behavior.

Cashies are so hilarious.

Its been nearly a YEAR since Roger Ver tried to usurp Bitcoin, and all he has to show for it is around 30 - 40 tx's an hour versus Bitcoin's torrential multitude -- even on a slow day -- http://fork.lol/tx/txs

Here are a few more inconvenient facts -- https://hackernoon.com/the-ethereum-blockchain-size-has-exceeded-1tb-and-yes-its-an-issue-2b650b5f4f62

ETH, EOS, BCash -- they're all in the same boat.

But I'm sure like all the other Ver cultists, you'll just ignore it all and give some pithy response - which is exactly why BCash is floundering like a fish out of water.

In short -- you've lost, and you will continue to lose.
