Coinbase and Circle announce the launch of USDC   a Digital Dollar Coinbase and Circle announce the launch of USDC a Digital Dollar
The new USDC stablecoin is fully collateralized by US dollars and supported by Coinbase and Circle as co-founding members of the CENTRE Consortium Starting today, Coinbase customers in supported jurisdictions can buy, sell, send and receive the USD Coin stablecoin (USDC) at Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase iOS and Android apps. US customers outside New York state can buy and sell, and customers around the world can send and receive. More geographies will be available in the future. This is the first time Coinbase has supported a stablecoin, which is fundamentally different from other cryptocurrencies. Unlike bitcoin or ether, a USDC is meant to represent a single US dollar (USD) that does not move up or down relative to its reference currency. One USDC is a 1:1 representation of a US dollar on the Ethereum blockchain. This information was discovered by us on 2019-01-17 14:07:36.

Bitcoin Cash Launch Retrospective   The Coinbase Blog Bitcoin Cash Launch Retrospective The Coinbase Blog
We wanted to follow up with our customers about the launch of Bitcoin Cash on GDAX. Despite our best efforts to create a fair and orderly market, the launch did not go as expected and we understand why many of our customers and members of the community are upset. To provide transparency, we wanted to share a detailed timeline of events, additional information about the decisions we made, and our thoughts about improving future launches. Decision to Support Bitcoin Cash On August 3, 2017, we announced our intention to allow customers to withdraw their Bitcoin Cash (BCH) balances by January 1, 2018. While we committed to supporting BCH withdrawals at that time, we delayed our decision whether or not to support BCH trading to a later date so we could better assess the health of the Bitcoin Cash network and evaluate BCH using our Digital Asset Framework.

AWS Step Functions, State Machines, Bifrost, and Building Deployers AWS Step Functions, State Machines, Bifrost, and Building Deployers
AWS Step Functions are hosted state-machines defined according to the Amazon States Language. To execute a Step function you send it JSON data which is given to an initial state to process then pass the output to another state. States are processed until a success or failure state is reached. How a state processes its input and selects the next state depends on its Type. For example, a Task state can use a Lambda function to process the input, and a Choice state can select which state to go to next based on its input. Step functions are awesome because they: Here is a small example where a state-machine calls out to a Lambda function and makes a choice based on its output: This publication was discovered by us on 2019-01-17 14:06:20.

What to Expect During the Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork   The Coinbase Blog What to Expect During the Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork The Coinbase Blog
Update as of Monday, November 26, 2018 Coinbase has now re-enabled sends and receives of BCH on Coinbase Pro, Prime, Coinbase.com and the iOS and Android apps. We expect to enable full BCH trading and functionality, including buys and sells on Coinbase.com and the mobile apps, in the next 2 days. Following the BCH hard fork and conclusion of the hash war, Bitcoin SV has confirmed the creation of a new coin, BSV. Coinbase intends to allow customers to withdraw BSV at a future date, though we do not currently intend to support trading, buys or sells. We will provide additional updates as they are available. We anticipate development work for BSV withdrawals will take at least a few weeks, but may take longer. This data was first found by us on 2019-01-17 14:06:01.

Coinbase is not a wallet   The Coinbase Blog Coinbase is not a wallet The Coinbase Blog
When we started Coinbase, we set out to build an easy to use bitcoin wallet. We figured a great feature to have in a bitcoin wallet would be the ability to convert your local currency into and out of bitcoin. We were right. Since launching this feature we've helped about 3 million people convert $3 billion worth of their local currency into and out of bitcoin. In fact, this feature became so successful that 80% of all activity on Coinbase is people buying, selling, and storing bitcoin as an investment, and 20% is people using it as a wallet for day-to-day spending. I think this hybrid wallet/exchange has created a bit of confusion in the marketplace. People want different things in the two products. This share was discovered by us on 2019-01-17 14:05:42.

Goodbye Toshi, hello Coinbase Wallet   the easiest and most secure crypto wallet and browser Goodbye Toshi, hello Coinbase Wallet the easiest and most secure crypto wallet and browser
Today, we're proud to announce that Toshi is becoming Coinbase Wallet. This is not just a new name, but part of a larger effort to invest in products that will define the future of the decentralized web and make that future accessible to anyone. At Coinbase, we believe that the applications of the future will be built on a decentralized internet (the blockchain). Everyone will own a crypto wallet that allows them to access decentralized applications (dapps) and that wallet will be their gateway to the open financial system. Toshi was developed by the Coinbase team a little over a year ago. When the product launched, it featured the world's first mobile dapp browser. Later, we became the first wallet to launch crypto collectibles. Our goal was to make managing crypto and accessing the decentralized web as easy as downloading an app on your mobile phone. And as part of our effort to be the most trusted brand in the space, we also set out to provide best-in-class secure storage. With Coinbase Wallet, your private keys are secured using your device's Secure Enclave and biometric authentication technology. This piece was found by us on 2019-01-17 14:05:36.

Powering a cryptocurrency economy for Syrian refugees Powering a cryptocurrency economy for Syrian refugees
Cryptocurrencies provide the easiest and most accessible way to give money directly to those in need. With GiveCrypto.org's innovative approach, recipients can actually turn around and use crypto to buy what they need immediately, without fees and delays. That's why we're using Day 6 of the 12 Days of Coinbase to support their new project that provides a basic income to more than 150 Syrian refugees in Greece. Our $10,000 gift in Bitcoin ($BTC) allows GiveCrypto.org to significantly expand on a model that has already allowed them and partner Sempo to support 15 Yazidi families in Kurdistan and 5 Syrian families in Beirut in 2018. While organizations could provide this support in local currency, many in the refugee community don't have access to financial institutions where they could receive and store donations. Meanwhile, even with access, fees end up eating into the cash aid. This entry was first seen by us on 2019-01-17 14:04:13.

Coinbase is for everyone,
Coinbase Pro is for experts Coinbase is for everyone, Coinbase Pro is for experts
We are at an interesting juncture in the evolution of the blockchain sector. On the one hand, estimates indicate that as of 2018 only a small percentage of internet users hold any cryptocurrency. This means that the vast majority of people have yet to discover the blockchain-based internet, which means that the ecosystem will need a safe, easy-to-use, and compliant on-ramp for cryptocurrency for the indefinite future. On the other hand, innovation is accelerating and the space continues to grow dramatically. A few years ago, there was only one major cryptocurrency: Bitcoin. Today there are thousands of tokens and blockchain startups. Soon there will be a large variety of digital assets spanning utility tokens, asset tokens, collectibles, derivatives, decentralized financial instruments and prediction markets. There are already millions of users who have discovered the potential of blockchain and need powerful tools to trade and use the expanding number of digital assets.
