Coinbase Pro Reviews
Someone is going to come along and knock them out of the box, so to speak, in my opinion, for a few reasons. First and foremost they have little to no response to customer service and all of a sudden my bank transfer purchases were not an option so I had to add my debit. Well for debit they charge me 3.99% NOT 1.99%. 2% makes a difference in this market and when I tried contacting them-- nothing. Even though my bank account is totally legit, the site won't verify it again, leaving me in 3.99% hell. As I said, just waiting for Robinhood or another option because when it comes along I and everyone else will be gone. Also, after reading the Bitcoin Cash debacle and Litecoin theories about insider trading makes me more unhappy. And, to top that off, explain why they get 3.99% AND charge more than the going rate when you go to purchase bitcoin. The buffer is ridiculous and amount unjustified.
GDAX has a nice trading UI and you get familiar to it pretty fast, even if you didn't have traded before. The most important trading features are there: market order, limit orders and stop orders. There is no margin trading, though (You shouldn't do margin trading as a beginner anyway).
If you are already verified on CoinBase, no additional verification is required. Plus, you can transfer your fiat assets between CoinBase and GDAX instant and without any fees.
For German not usable or at your own risk, due to the terms and conditions. Coinbase reserves the right to close German accounts for no reason.
Quote in German:
"Coinbase's website and services are not offered to persons resident or registered in Germany Coinbase's services are provided by Coinbase UK, Ltd., a UK-based company Coinbase UK, Ltd is not regulated financial services provider and does not operate outside the UK. "

Für deutsche nicht brauchbar oder auf eigene Gefahr, auf Grund der AGBs. Coinbase behält sich vor deutsche Konten ohne Grund zu schließen.
Zitat auf deutsch:
"Die Webseite und Dienstleistungen von Coinbase werden nicht für Personen angeboten, die ihren Wohnsitz oder ihren registrierten Arbeitsplatz in Deutschland haben. Die Dienste von Coinbase werden von Coinbase UK, Ltd. angeboten, einer im Vereinigten Königreich ansässigen Firma. Coinbase UK, Ltd ist kein regulierter Finanzdienstleister und operiert nicht außerhalb des Vereinigten Königreichs."
So let me say they have a lot of room for improvement! With as much business as they have they should be cutting down on the basic coinbase fees
Their value is in how Very Simple it is to set up and User Interface. I will say when your average 40-60 year old who has minimum computer experience decided to invest with crypto, It will either be with a broker or Coinbase. Very simple to use and understand for our technically challenged baby boomers. I agree with @abomadje that someone and it will be sooner than later, will come and in a 3 move checkmate takeout CB Revealing their hand when the additional crypto coins besides the original 5, in the proceess they were added was at the least a desperate attempt to "keep up" at best. They are huge and have branding established but all it will take is a couple of shiny new features and the right timing marketing on the next run, can make CB a memory of the past..
Customer service is very bad. Otherwise an Exchange like any other. Due to the experience of coinbase, I remain loyal to the Exchange

Kundenservice ist sehr mies. Ansonsten eine Exchange wie jede andere. Aufgrund der Erfahrung von coinbase bleibe ich der Exchange treu
