Coinbase time!

Recommended Posts

Ok now that everyone forgot about rumors of XRP on Coinbase and that XRP is just slowly declining and becoming boring to watch I think we are due to see Coinbase integrating it very soon. But when?

I think it could be added any time maybe today, tomorrow or in a week from now. Can't wait to see.

When do YOU think it will be added?

And yes I know XRP could so well without it but it will be so exciting when it's finally added.

I would assume, if they had any sense at all, they'd be eager to roll it out on their platform before Coinsquare and Robinhood came into the market. This would be February for Coinsquare, and I'm guessing maybe March/April for Robinhood. So sometime soon would make sense, if they are going to do it at all.

Yeah coinbase is going to fade into obscurity if they don't continue to build their niche. They were the easiest way to buy crypto but the market is catching the rapidly. 

I really wanted coinbase to support xrp and I would have bought frequently but now the competitors are catching up and I may drop CB altogether

Why hyping Coinbase?

Ripple has all resources needed to create a public digital asset exchange by themselves. Fully regulated, hardened by Ben Lawsky and powered by XRP ledger.

Any idea whats holding them back? is it they are just lax of making too much money already, or is it because they are a monopoly in the U.S?..the latter opens dialogue for a well planned Exchange to launch and  take a huge chunk of their present and potential market out when they least expect it.

I'm also going to drop CB as soon as I find a good alternative in the US. 

I am very annoyed at their lack of adding XRP and even though it was only one time that I read, the owner did have some not nice words about XRP. 

That said, better thread title OP! Looked like CB was adding XRP and you got me a little excited. 

I think CB will add in March.

Yes. Originally Brian Armstrong, ceo of CB said very very clearly back around 2015 that he considered xrp and other alt coins to be distractions from the crypto ideals.  Give the world back then and what btc was to be, i understand why he would say that. 

However today, CB struggles to keep up with their current volume. They have created the gdax policy for adding new coins and ripple has talked extensively about decentralization. This makes me think both companies are discussing CB support for xrp but right now most of us question if CB truly has the capacity to handle xrp volumes. The answer is probably not yet. 

It could turn into a real **** show if CB adds xrp and volume goes to $10bil again immediately.

I'm pretty sure CB is working on updating their infrastructure to support the large volume of traffic their servers will receive when they add more coins. Now that they have more competition perhaps they'll speed things up and even lower their fees.

They would definitely miss out on a heap of money, for whatever the reasons. Early investors have positioned themselves well without it, but I'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of people who are unaware/overwhelmed or unable to navigate current purchasing methods. These folks will eagerly buy into anything at 2 dollars once there is a point and click method at their fingertips. I would only imagine it to be a race to capture that initial influx of fresh money.
