Is the same thing that I wrote to Coinbase pro. For German only at your own risk usable.

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. "

Gilt das Gleiche, was ich zu Coinbase pro geschrieben hatte. Für deutsche nur auf eigene Gefahr benutzbar.

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."

Not a bad exchange overall. Good fees, UI is simple to use wile still offering more complex tools. The problem with it is the support that is slow and inefficient making you having to contact them several times to resolve a single issue, building up even more wasted time adding to their already slow response.

Everything was fine until I made a mistake in XLM deposit memo — it took several weeks to explain my issue to their support team and credit coins to my account.

On average coinbase is really decent except their fees are a bit high which makes me not make a good profit but still it's amazing for beginners to start with crypto!

Coinbase is good, as long as you don't need the support. My account balance showed up as negative because of a bug in their wallet. Because of the supposedly negative balance I was not able to withdraw any funds. It took CoinBase 7 months and 4 support tickets to finally solve the issue. Support tickets are getting ignored or replied by bots. It is very hard to get through to a human supporter.

WARNING: Do Not Trust Coinbase
They have blocked access to my Money for weeks and will not answer simple support requests.
I thought it may have been a one off technical problem but after some research on a number of social media platforms and reputable news feeds it seems I'm not the only one.
Please check Coinbase on any social media platform that allows some sort of unfiltered content before you sign up and give them your hard earned cash.

Coinbase is a good place to buy cryptocurrencies if you are new to crypto or just want to buy and hold crypto for the long-term. It has a beautiful and user-friendly UI and has a decent selection of payment methods.

If you want to trade more actively you can use your Coinbase account to trade on their exchange GDAX which has lower fees and more advanced features.

As a beginner in cryptotrading I turned to Coinbase second (after having used Virwox first with the SLL step-up construction).
I have to say that I did NOT like waiting 3 days for my first transaction to confirm my bank account, even after jumping though all the hoops of confirming my identity and such. I understand that it's all for my own (assets') security and all but I mean, opening a proper bank account is easier and faster, right...
Anyway, buying cryptocurrencies is, in fact, instant, as advertised, with a disclaimer it might take a day(!) and with a what I find pretty high trading fee (although still a bit cheaper than using the SLL structure on Virwox).

I trust eventual future transactions using CC or iDeal will go smoother.

Coinbase is hands down the easiest place to buy bitcoin with either a bank account, credit card, or debit card. They recently added crypto news and XRP and XLM as well. Their charting and alert features make it easy to view and monitor all currencies. Fantastic app! Create an account with my link and get free $10 for trading $100!
