Coinbase is deleting accounts without warning, according to several users

Not even a whole month has passed since the #DeleteCoinbase gate, but the U.S.-headquartered exchange is again under crypto Twitter fire.

Craig Russell, Android developer involved with the developing of the duckduckgo app according to his Twitter bio, has been sharing during the last couple of days evidence regarding the shut-down of his Coinbase account:

An account shut-down is likely to happen for many different reasons, such as breaching terms of use, KYC issues and bugs. However, what appears to be a strange occurrence is that Russell was not given time to log in and withdraw his remaining balances.

After his complain, many users replied to the tweet mentioning that they had been through similar issues:

Although the reasons behind the account shut-down remain unclear, it does not appear reasonable to think that all of these users were engaged into breachings of the terms of use stipulated by Coinbase.

It seems to me if there is one more negative case, I will go to withdraw money from Coinbase wallet
14 Mar, 2019 - 21:24
not first time coinbase provides such activity. i'm fed up with coinbase
14 Mar, 2019 - 21:28
Doesn't Coinbase enough people who had deleted their accounts, so it decided to delete them by itself?
14 Mar, 2019 - 21:47
Of course you can’t get your assets on account, because coinbase has already received them

What a story. I have deleted my account on coinbase myself. After all the nonsense with neutrino and xrp.
15 Mar, 2019 - 09:31
and how to withdraw money then??
15 Mar, 2019 - 17:14
coinbase is not the safe place for trading
17 Mar, 2019 - 21:30
the idea of cold wallet is bad since coinbase can’t guarantee the protection of our data.

Coinbase scales up the fees making trading unprofitable! How could they be so greedy?

18 Mar, 2019 - 19:17

18 Mar, 2019 - 19:45
I didn't know what deleting accounts is common practice of Coinbase
18 Mar, 2019 - 20:54
such activity can only be provided by coinbase which is scam
18 Mar, 2019 - 22:43
