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.

According to the text, the bill – among other items – seeks to exclude “digital tokens” from being defined as securities, amending both the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934."

Distributed computing CALM - ness or not

Distributed computing and coordination is not a necessary evil, it is an incidental requirement of a design decisionThe key insight in CALM is to focus on consistency from the viewpoint of program outcomes rather than the traditional histories of storage mutation. The emphasis on the program being computed shifts focus from implementation to specification: it allows us to ask questions about what computations are possible.Interesting article and some good insight. Worth a read. https://blog.acolyer.org/2019/03/06/keeping-calm-when-distributed-consistency-is-easy/
