It's amazing that ETH set up a "You Shall Not Pass!" wall around $1,150, when it made it's all-time-high moves in the last few days. LTC has been to $400+, and it still has it's "You Shall Not Pass!" wall around $200.

I highly doubt Coinbase is running a ponzi scheme. They have been around for years now. They store the crypto in offsite cold storage - to ensure that clients have as little risk as possible of theft. Also, they don't want to get ripped off. They have to deal with banks in the real world - not just crypto. Banks can undo fraudulent transactions and then Coinbase is left holding the bag when you run away with the crypto. Crypto is non-reversable on purposes so any exchange offering fiat-crypto conversion HAS to take reasonable measures to not get ripped off.

Either have patience, or use a credit card and pay the higher fees. Please don't make these false claims about the companies who are trying to make an effort to follow all the burdensome US regulations, and have fiat-crypto conversions as easy as possible for new people. Unless you have evidence to make these claims, you are just spreading unnecessary FUD.

LOL I bought my first crypto (a WHOLE LITECOIN :shock: ) last Saturday and was told it would be in my wallet this Saturday. What kills me is the USD funding. They pull that crap out of your bank account, then dont' make it available for 7 freaking days. Ponzi bastards! :lol:


Also, how do you buy crypto with a credit card? I added my card yet I cannot figure out how to use it as a funding source. I want cabelas points!

Part of the reasons for delays is because of credit/debit card users, and the possibilities of charge-backs. Purchasing from a checking account speeds-up the process.

Although the part about chargebacks is true, I don't think using a checking account is any faster.

Credit card shows LTC available instantly for me. Checking account takes 8 days.

If your Coinbase account is new and/or you haven't made many Coinbase purchases with the credit card, then maybe there is a delay for credit cards? It could also depend on how much account verification you have done.

You would think there would be more fraud with credit cards than checking accounts. I have both set up, dont want to pay any more fees than i have to so, use checking acct. Been with Coinbase since day 1, they have all my info and pic id but still treat me like a newb. :thumbdown:

CoinBase sucks. I have a Gemini account but I've never used it, I've heard nothing but good comments about them.

I emailed CoinBase this morning about an account discrepancy. I believe I'm short about .8 BCH on their books. I expect it will take a week for a reply.

Good post Nate. When I started with CoinBase, they really didn't like credit card transactions. I guess they figured out how to make it work for them.

Nope. I did it as an ACH, still told a week. I also deposited funds via bank account....7 days despite them immediately pulling it out. There's no reason it should take 7 days for funds to hit a USD wallet when they pull them out instantly.

Well, it's CoinBase. Sometimes I've had it work within a day, but other times it has taken a week.

I'm currently cash-poor, and Bitcoin rich. I'm not going to buying anything, but if I was in the market, I''d go to Gemini and see how they roll. I read a lot of different forums about Bitcoin, and I've never heard a bad comment about them.

The money leaving your account immediately doesn't mean Coinbase gets it immediately. An ACH authorization only verifies that the routing and account number are valid, it does not know if the funds in the account are sufficient to cover the payment. An ACH usually isn't processed until the following business day and can be denied by the bank like a non-sufficient-funds check. It can take 3-5 more business days for the bank to determine this and propagate the NSF back to the merchant. So if you initiate an ACH deposit to Coinbase and don't have enough in your checking account to cover it, Coinbase might not find that out until a week later. Hence the delay. Buyers can also attempt to dispute an ACH with their bank by claiming they did not authorize it, and there is no shortage of people looking to scam crypto any way they can. So Coinbase is very careful to cover their butts with clearing times and buying/selling limits that gradually increase as you provide more ID confirmation and establish a good account track record.
