Don't use Coinbase.

https://mashable.com/article/sec-coinbase-complaints-fraud/

There are many stories like this. And worse.   Coinbase has been great for getting average non Technical users into crypto with their ease of use and mobile app.  But they are worse than the banks people complain about.  And with none of the actual benefits the big banks offer. 

The reality is coinbase has no legit customer service or the support either doesn't care or can't do anything.  They overcharge and blame others.    They hold money for months.  Their shift card partner is another terrible company in itself and money seems to disappear or charges  get denied and you have to delete and reinstall and configure over and over. 

The sad reality is coinbase could have pushed crypto and blockchain to the masses in a great way, instead they are just more overlnflated egos from wall street who founded a company and created a wall street like company without the wall street  benefits.  

Stay away from Coinbase.

Help or more dystopian government control ?

Austin , Texas is piloting a program for putting the homeless population on the blockchain. Sounds great and great for society in general. There are some others around the globe attempting something similar.  There is a huge need for poor people and affordable housing as well as homelessness in many many cities and rural areas.     But will this be a program to help the homeless or a pseudo subtle attempt to control and know everything about everything and everyone by government agencies and corporations ?   I used to think a blockchain ID system was the perfect use case for many verticals and industries.  Now it's starting to look like another attempt at control by your typical governments and mega corporations.  Will it help the homeless or just be another tool to control more people?
