What is Coinbase?

Coinbase is an U.S. based centralized cryptocurrency exchange with its official headquarters in San Francisco. However, by 2020, the company announced that it will no longer recognize a formal headquarters, but would adopt remote work mode, and employees will be distributed all over the world.

Coinbase was founded in June 2012 and launched the services to trade bitcoins in October 2012. Customers around the world discover and begin their journeys with crypto through Coinbase.

It was named GDAX, which stands for Global Digital Asset Exchange. In May 2018, the GDAX cryptocurrency exchange was renamed as Coinbase Pro.

Today, Coinbase and Coinbase Pro have approximately 56 million verified users, 8,000 institutions, and 134,000 ecosystem partners in over 100 countries.

Is Coinbase Trustworthy?

Coinbase is considered a secure cryptocurrency exchange with a robust system to ensure the security of customer accounts, including the use of two-step verification, biometric fingerprint logins, insurance, FDIC-insured USD balances, and AES-256 encryption for digital wallets.
