I had 0.0314 of a bitcoin. Sold it earlier for a profit of £200 to invest in Litecoin. Would've made an extra £100 had I waited a couple of hours. FML.

I sold at 11k. Haha. It was nearly at 20k in the last hour.

It's bad news if Coinbase crashes. Imagine the uproar if massive sells go through plunging the price and people can't get online to sell. This was pretty much the scenario that made me get out.

It's all a bit silly really, surely the price of one bitcoin is now far exceeding what it costs in computing power to mine one.

All this electricity (only part of which is from sustainable sources) spent on huge mining farms, all to find a hash through bruteforce to record the latest bunch of transactions.

We're basically swapping all our coal, oil and gas for arbitrary numbers in a ledger that have no tangible value. Basically a huge pyramid scheme

Coinbase isnt the only exchange. Try Coin Corner if you dont mind paying slightly higher fees.

Coinbase has some really bad reviews so I steered clear. To view the link you have to Register or Login

Some info from my recent (fairly smooth) buying experience using To view the link you have to Register or Login and bittylicious To view the link you have to Register or Login

Never had any issues with Coinbase myself although they are pricey. Blockchain.info have been good too but only sell BTC and Etherium.

I use GDAX which is the trading back end of Coinbase, so can buy via limit orders with no fees. Though still has same outages as Coinbase, frustratingly
