Coinbase, Exchanges

Where Is Coinbase Available?

Coinbase is a digital asset exchange company headquartered in San Francisco, California. They broker exchanges of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other digital assets with fiat currencies in 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide.

Coinbase was founded in June 2012 by Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam. Armstrong is a former software engineer at AirBnB and Ehrsam is a former trader at Goldman Sachs.

Coinbase has been incredibly successful. In just four years they have amassed over $106 million in funding from VC firms like Andreesen Horowitz, DFJ Growth, USV and more.

They are currently one of the most valuable startUPS in Silicon Valley with a valuation of over $1 billion.

NOTE: WARNING: Coinbase is not available in all countries. Coinbase services may be limited or unavailable in some countries due to local laws and regulations. Before you register for Coinbase, please make sure to check whether Coinbase is available in your country. If Coinbase is not available in your country, you should consider alternative methods of buying and selling cryptocurrency.

However, Coinbase has not been without controversy. In early 2016 they were accused of insider trading when they launched Ethereum trading on their platform after investing in the Ethereum Foundation.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigated the matter but ultimately did not take any action against Coinbase.

In late 2017, Coinbase was again embroiled in controversy when they announced that they would not support Bitcoin Cash (BCH), a fork of Bitcoin. This resulted in a massive sell-off of BCH on their platform as well as accusations of insider trading.

Coinbase has since reversed their position on BCH and now supports it on their platform.

So where is Coinbase available? Coinbase is available in 32 countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore and more. They are also available in 190 countries for bitcoin storage.
