Coinbase "Offline" During the Recent Bitcoin 3K Milestone

When coin daily volume is off the chain, as we've seen recently, some of these platforms (ESPECIALLY COINBASE) go offline due to self described "tech updates" & such. They really can't handle the volume & currently have no customer service dept.

The feeling of not having access to your coins during an unprecedented period of market strength is unsettling. It makes some first timers paranoid and shakes up their confidence in the big concept of alt currency.

Prices aren't going to drop dramatically like the 1k milestone, we have enough users to reproduce the community and buy back in. But, many different platforms could lose users if the market decides to drop coin related 3rd parties and use the big banks new digital currency transaction platforms.

The banks are moving in aggressively
