Coinbase Wallet now supports Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Coinbase has announced that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is now supported by its mobile wallet app. Support for BCH on Coinbase Wallet will be rolled out for all Android and iOS users over the next few weeks.

While Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has been listed for a while on the main Coinbase website and app, BCH holders had to trust the company to keep their tokens for them. Offering support for Coinbase Wallet means that they will be able to take control of their own BCH and be responsible for its security. Coinbase claims that its "goal with Coinbase Wallet is to create the world’s leading user-custodied crypto wallet".

Coinbase Wallet will allow BCH storage by default, as soon as it is available for a particular system. The app will also support the Bitcoin Cash Testnet, in order to help out developers and power users, who can switch to the testnet in the Advanced Settings tab.

Why Coinbase supports unprofitable cryptocurrency? It looks very stupid

all because the coinbase itself is dumb. its actions are devoid of logic

Why Coinbase Wallet now supports Bitcoin Cash? I'm confused why Coinbase supports useless cryptocurrency

It supports it finally.
Coinbase implements updates when no one already need it.

To become a “Google of crypto” coinbase will need to regain people's trust in itself!

This fork was the worst and that's why coinbase has it.

coinbase is very creative because usually creates new ways of stealing the money

Wow? Is Coinbase an idiot or it does not understand that now Bitcoin Cash is hopeless and not profitable. Why Coinbase does a support of this crypto?
22 Feb, 2019 - 23:16
lol, very sad thing you know.. Coinbase has no brain.
23 Feb, 2019 - 07:07
something not at all impressive. Coinbase is so boring
23 Feb, 2019 - 09:19
Who cares if it slow as a turtle and has bugs in it not letting to register or add the cards. Coinbase is terrible as usual

Are a lot of people using Bitcoin Cash now? This support is meaningless. It is better to support a more useful coin but seems that Coinbase doesn’t know how to make useful updates.
24 Feb, 2019 - 09:04
For what? Bitcoin Cash is almost dead and Coinbase starts support it? Just a foolish move
24 Feb, 2019 - 09:40
it doesn't change the fact that coinbase is the bottom
24 Feb, 2019 - 20:36
I believe that if you want to do charity, you need to put money on a wallet of coinbase and you can forget about your money)) why not charity ?!)
24 Feb, 2019 - 21:19
support is okay, but what about to do smth with support of people? or to cut fees of Coinbase?
25 Feb, 2019 - 12:58
Coinbase wallet adds support for coins for a very long time. Why was it even necessary to create this wallet if it is no different from hundreds of the same wallets and also it is useless?
26 Feb, 2019 - 03:57
Coinbase made a shit. Bitcoin cash is absolutely unpopular now. This support is useless because a little people use it.
26 Feb, 2019 - 22:32
Coinbase wants to make a hype by adding bitcoin cash because this exchange is hopeless
