So Coinbase saves me time. In a nutshell, Coinbase simplifies everything for me and is one of the most reputable/ trusted solutions as a crypto wallet.
  • Very simple dashboard for monitoring your coins
  • Makes buying and selling Cryptocurrencies very simple once your account is set up
  • Has a price alert feature for monitoring prices when they go above or below your target prices
  • Same complaint I have about any other coinbase competitor. Setting up an account takes too long (a few days). But it's understandable as it has to be a very high level of security
  • Higher transaction fees than other platforms for purchasing the same product. But because of Coinbase's simplicity relative to other platforms they are able to charge a bit of a premium here. You just need to know what you're getting into. If you're doing high volume, it's worth learning a GDAX or other platform.

  • They're limited in the payment methods they accept. Not a huge deal, but they don't accept paypal.
Coinbase is great for its simplicity. It is no doubt the best entry level option for someone who is new to blockchain/ cryptocurrencies and wants to begin investing in it. However, while they do have relatively low transaction fees, they don't have the lowest fees. So for someone who is doing a high volume of trading, there are other platforms that would be a better fit.

  • Customer support is lacking. It's hard to talk to a human and get a real response to your questions/concerns. This is particularly irritating since we're dealing with money.
I think Coinbase is a great place to start for people that are just getting acquainted with the cryptocurrency space. The interface works as much like a traditional bank as you could expect, considering Coinbase is not a bank, so it's very easy for users to get a handle on what is going on.

Storing money long-term in Coinbase is not particularly advisable, as the nature of cryptocurrency is that you are to trust no one with your secure keys. By using Coinbase, you are inherently breaking that idea, and trusting Coinbase to keep your funds secure for you.

  • Buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency
  • Navigate your crypto portfolio
  • Send and receive cryptocurrency
  • The fees are way too high. Once you get used to trading cryptocurrency you should find a better solution.
  • Their customer support is abysmal
If you are interested in making some small bitcoin purchases and beginning to explore the world of crypto, Coinbase is a good place to start. Once you are comfortable with the platform, you should graduate to more professional services with lower pricing. Coinbase is just way too expensive and their customer support is horrible if you are having issues

Coinbase is being used for small, ad-hoc transactions of top cryptocurrencies. There is currently no major function that Coinbase provides for our organization.
  • User friendly / Easy-to-use UX
  • Non-technical users can own major tokens
  • Transparency in fee policy (Assesses fees without notifying customer)
  • Downtime of network is very volatile during high-traffic times
  • Customer service
Coinbase is well-suited for the beginner purchaser of crytocurrencies. However, beware of high fees.
