The largest exchange of cryptocurrencies in the United States today announced that it will roll out a series of investor-oriented instruments with little or no field knowledge.
The Cryptocurrency Exchange based in San Francisco Coinbase announced Thursday that it will roll out a series of seemingly oriented investment instruments towards those who have little or no knowledge about the field of digital currencies.
The Coinbase package allows users to purchase a "package" of pre-selected cryptocurrencies for a minimum of $ 25. The cryptocurrencies included in the package are those supported by Coinbase – Bitcoin (BTC) 00, Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum Classic.
In addition to the package, Coinbase is launching two more additions to its platform. That is, information pages on assets that contain an index of the 50 major cryptocurrencies by means of their market capitalization, as well as Coinbase Learn, a FAQ page oriented towards newcomers.
While the official intention of Coinbase should educate new investors, the package seems to be oriented towards the opposite.
The official blog post announcing the tools states the following:
Only 3% of people can name four or more cryptocurrencies.
This raises the question: why could Coinbase encourage new investors to buy a cryptocurrency they have never heard of?
In addition, the official Coinbase Bundle page contains the classic sentiment, "If you bought" a certain amount of cryptocurrencies this time last year, "you would have "a lot more
Needless to say, "Self you have purchased ", the period is not fixed in December 2017, nor in January 2018.
The community reaction has been decidedly negative and there are almost no positive comments under the same Coinbase tweet.
The Coinbase package helps get rid of the stress of choosing the first encryption by offering the option of buying a market-weighted crypto package for only $ 25.
