As of now, Coinbase does not require SSN (Social Security Number) for creating an account. The only personal information they require is your name and email address.
Of course, this could change in the future, but as of now, you can use Coinbase without providing your SSN.
This is good news for those who are privacy-conscious and don’t want to hand over their personal information to yet another company. It’s also good news for those who don’t have a SSN, such as international students.
However, there are some limitations to using Coinbase without a SSN. For starters, you can only deposit/withdraw $200 worth of currency per day.
You also won’t be able to use features that require KYC (Know Your Customer) verification, such as buying/selling cryptocurrencies on Coinbase Pro or converting cryptocurrencies into Fiat currency.
Overall, it is currently possible to use Coinbase without providing your SSN. However, there are some limitations to doing so.
