Took me about 4 minutes to set up Coinbase on my phone. Using CC. Put some in each of the 3 currencies. Not much, but enough to have fun with and not get all suicidal.

Did you buy from coinbase, or did you use gdax?

Can you do it mobile from a phone to verify your acct? Coinbase just takes forever and has high fees you can use GDAX to get around fees albeit they are .25% in some cases

Using GDAX will save you a lot on fees. Transfer between CB and GDAX is free.

Which app is everyone using to manage their Coinbase account? Or am I reading this wrong? I too am having trouble with the website.

no doubt, just looking for the right opportunity to jump in. 10k or above wasn't it, as that was just the result of people wanting it to get to 10k, dumping for profits and along with everyone else buying in to ride the train. It looks like its going to sustain a significant correction. I actually have my eye on another crypto that I believe has more upside potential for quick churn and burn profits.

Ok...I'm gonna expose my lack of knowledge but here goes....

How can there be an influx of bitcoin on GDAX but the price goes down? Are people just moving their bitcoin into the market and not buying or selling?

Do y'all with error messages happen to be using iphone? I'm on an android with flawless app. My coworker is getting same messages with iphone. Just curious if that's it. This is the coinbase app.

Farking frustrating is what Coinbase is. You'd think it was a .gov website as poor as it is working.

Too high too fast...It's back on it's way up though.

Coinbase and GDAX are really struggling to keep up right now. It's at it's highest volume I've seen in a few weeks.

so if you buy bitcoin on coinbase, it takes several days for the funds to transfer...are you locked in to buying at the price you made the order?? or will it adjust to market rate once your funds are available??

I am 100% rookie at investing or buying and selling. But, this looks like it can be fun never the less.

Anyone have any other sites or ways to buy and sell that seem just as easy as this whole bitcoin process. I'm not talking about the making money part, just ease of getting started and overall use.

Ive been sitting in 100% cash in my cyprto accounts for the past two weeks. Im not playing when these huge run ups happen. You never know how high or how low they will drop. Once they normalize at some level I will start trading again.

Yes sir. I go about 90% out of the stock market at the end of 1999-beginning 2000 because of exactly this. My yard guy started talking to me about the stocks he was wanting to buy and what I thought about them.
