    Double check the amount, I had about 2 btc before the fork yet only got 1 bch. Emailed support.
    Did anyone notice anything similar?

      I have the expected amount of BCH.

      Thanks, I hope they fix mine.

      My trades were all confirmed in July. The missing amount is exactly 1 btc. Looking at the history again, I had 1 btc being transferred from my coinbase btc vault to my coinbase btc wallet initiated in late July and confirmed in early August.

      Shouldn't the btc in the vault also get a matching amount of bch?

    I just got 0.4 BCH cause I had that amount in BTC back when the fork happened. Suddenly I just earned 4,000$

      Where are there fees? You don't pay fees when you buy, you don't pay fees when you sell, you don't pay fees when you transfer out of gdax. Where are the fees?

      You most definitely pay fees when you buy

      You guys are talking about gdax right? Not the silly mobile app for n00bs (which does have fees)
      Dec 20, 2017

      There are fees unless you do post-only orders on GDAX. Check order history, you will see the fees.

      Try it out : place a market order (buy or sell) then go check order history. You will see a feed column.

    Lol just screwed myself by buying BTC earlier today at $18.5k. I'll HODL and pray

      You should consider swapping it out into alts. I reckon BTC is going to stay stagnant for a bit (or maybe even decline) now that new coins are getting added to Coinbase.

    OP
    I see that some of you are using Coinbase to buy crypto. Please stop doing that. Instead, use gdax (which is also owned by Coinbase, use same creds to login) to eliminate/significantly reduce broker fees. Coinbase is for normies and this ease of use comes at a price.
    There's a good reason Coinbase doesn't openly advertise this...

    So seriously, when do you guys think this bubble is gonna burst? Throughout history it took other bubbles a while... Will it take at least 6 months? Altcoins are going up at over 20% / week, at this rate you need less than 6 months to turn $5K into $5M

      No need to go all in, gamble on a few k's and check back in a year
      Dec 19, 2017
    • Google tcCd20
      Yep that's what I'm doing. Started about 4 months ago, 14k is about 70k now. Just sold 14k of btc and holding the rest, might sell some more at the year mark. Planning on hodling most of the gains for a couple of years. A lot of people are still getting into this so there is room for price increase
      Dec 20, 2017
    • Google tcCd20
      Agreed, however I think it'll be some time before the "bubble bursts", until then I think prices will keep rising.
      Also when the burst happens I think it's gonna be more of a correction in price as opposed to a complete meltdown.
      I'm keeping what I gained as a big gamble since this is new territory and if I turn out wrong I can make a ton more. If I turn out right, I will end up still making some money since I'm mainly playing with the "house money" at this point.
      I'm expecting the burst won't happen for a while. After starting in crypto I read about hodl and how people who didn't sell in dips and rises ended up making a ton in the long run. So I kept my btc even after price dropped about 30% at some point. My bet is many people will think like I did and just keep the money in there for a while.
      Net net it's a big gamble and money im willing to lose

      The bubble has been supposed to burst for years now. Eventually it might but likelihood of it happening is low compared to likelihood it continues to rise. It’s not about calling the future, it’s about profiting from the EV. Risk $10k for a chance to make 2-10x. Plus, at this point bitcoin is starting to leak into the mainstream and this is only going to drive the price higher
      Dec 20, 2017
    • Palantir / Eng M¥h68^!
      It’s not mainstream yet. Not everyone is investing. There aren’t really any regulated bitcoin financial instruments (though futures just came out this month). Most people are still skeptical. But it’s starting to get there

    I am hearing the Coinbase pop is a bug on Coinbase.

    Can anyone confirm?
    Dec 19, 2017 4
    • Microsoft maverickk
      OP
      This may indeed be a bug. BCH is trading at around 3800 on other exchanges
      Dec 19, 2017
    • Google / Eng YourVP
      Not a bug, pure market manipulation at its finest. Very wealthy individual tried to push the price up while liquidity is thin. Coinbase stopped the trading after 3 minutes. Some people got hurt really bad
      Dec 19, 2017
    • Microsoft maverickk
      OP
      @YourVP: Quite possible. Is there any public news about this that I can read? Would certainly like to learn more.

    How does the fork work? To the people that got BCH when they held in August where does the money it's worth come from?
    Dec 19, 2017 2
    • Cisco AwvU45
      Starting at a certain block on Aug 1 they started mining new blocks with a different protocol. So if you had unspent transaction outputs (bitcoin money) then you have BCH on this new fork. Both BCH and BTC kept mining blocks with different protocols (BCH has bigger blocksize). It’s funny cause it looks like you just got money out of thin air. In October or November there was yet another fork from BTC called Bitcoin Gold. (BCG). If you have bitcoin from before that timeframe you also have BTG. Since Coinbase doesn’t support it at the moment you’re not hearing too much about it. One BTG is about $490 as I’m typing this up right now. I have no idea what will happen going forward with that. It’s all pretty crazy right now. So entertaining!

      I guess they fixed it. Shows up as ~3400/BCH now.

    Coinbase? 90% time is down
    Dec 20, 2017 1
    • Google tcCd20
      It wasn't like this 4 months ago. Right now there is a huge influx of people trying to buy crypto and coinbase is their entry way. Coinbase probably wasn't anticipating such crazy influx of users and likely its server aren't ready to cope with the increased traffic yet.
      To me that's a sign prices will go up more as many users are setting their coinbase and funding it and trying to buy but were slowed down.
