Announcing Ethereum & Litecoin vaults

Today, we’re excited to launch Ethereum and Litecoin vaults for all customers, bringing these assets in line with our current Bitcoin storage offerings. With vaults for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin, customers get additional layers of withdrawal security for stored digital currency, such as a 48-hour withdrawal delay and required email approvals.

A little more than 3 years ago, we launched Bitcoin vaults for Coinbase customers. Our goal was to help eliminate the false idea that Bitcoin owners had to choose between security or convenience when it came to storage. Coinbase vaults gave customers the best of both worlds by providing a standard account for easy access and a vault for long-term storage.

We’re now bringing this product to Ethereum and Litecoin, continuing our mission to make Coinbase the easiest, most secure place to buy, sell, and hold digital currency.

Visit coinbase.com/accounts and click “New Account” to set up a BTC, ETH, or LTC vault today. To learn more about the vaults product, visit coinbase.com/vault.


Announcing Ethereum & Litecoin vaults was originally published in The Coinbase Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Announcing Coinbase phone support: +1 (888) 908–7930

As part of our Q3 2017 focus on the fundamentals and our commitment to improving customer support, we’re pleased to announce phone support is now live for our customers. Phone support is another step in our commitment to making Coinbase the most trusted and easiest to use digital currency exchange.

Starting today, customers can contact Coinbase customer support via this phone number: +1 (888) 908–7930

Initially, phone support will be available to customers Monday through Friday, 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. Pacific Time, and phone agents will be able to help with:

  • Trust and safety issues including the ability for customers to lock down their account in cases where they suspect their account may have been compromised
  • ID verification issues
  • Limit increases

Phone agents will be unable to assist with account-specific inquiries such as:

  • The status of a specific purchase or sale of digital currency
  • The status of a specific deposit or withdrawal of digital currency
  • Questions about a customer’s account history

Customers requiring assistance with account-specific inquiries can submit a request.

Safeguarding against phone porting

Our top priority at Coinbase is the safety of customer funds. Over the last few months, we have made a number of enhancements to the Coinbase platform to protect customers against phone porting.

First, we have conducted an extensive customer education campaign about the benefits of migrating from SMS-based two-factor authentication to apps like Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication—which are secure from phone porting. Over 75% of Coinbase customers with large digital currency balances are now using Google Authenticator-type two-factor authentication. Customers wishing to upgrade their two-factor authentication can do so here. We have also built a secure two-factor authentication recovery process. Additional resources can be found on our two-factor authentication support FAQ.

Second, we have built several systems designed to help protect customers from phone porting. One system is able to detect phone porting at the phone network level in real-time. Another system is able to detect unusual activity for a customer’s account using a risk model.

We are continuing to heavily invest in features that will help protect our customers. This is essential in making Coinbase the most trusted and easiest to use digital currency exchange.

Coinbase raises $100M Series D led by IVP

We are excited to announce that Coinbase has raised $100 million in Series D funding. This represents a major milestone for our mission to create an open financial system for the world. The round was led by IVP, with participation from Spark Capital, Greylock Partners, Battery Ventures, Section 32 and Draper Associates.

Coinbase experienced unprecedented growth over the last year, and we have now exchanged over $25 billion USD of digital currency for our customers. We’ll be using this new funding to continue scaling even further. Specifically, we will:

  1. Increase the size of our engineering and customer support teams to improve the customer experience.
  2. Open a GDAX office in New York City, further investing in our ability to serve institutions and professional traders.
  3. Invest in Toshi, to help accelerate digital currency’s shift from speculative investment to global payment network.

We’re fortunate to be working with IVP, one of the premier later-stage venture capital and growth equity firms in the United States. Founded in 1980, IVP has invested in over 300 companies, 106 of which have gone public. Notable IVP investments include companies such as Dropbox, Netflix, Twitter, Slack, and Snap.

Coinbase was founded in 2012 and has grown to become one the world’s leading digital currency companies with support for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin in 32 countries. Today it is a portfolio of three products:

  1. Coinbase — the most popular retail exchange for digital currency
  2. GDAX — the most popular exchange for institutions and professional traders in the U.S.
  3. Toshi — a browser for the Ethereum network

Digital currencies are having their “Netscape” moment. The pace of innovation has been accelerating and we are now seeing exciting projects and companies being built on top of digital currencies. We’re beginning to transition into phase three of our secret master plan.

If this mission excites you, we’re looking to fill many new roles. Send us a note!

You can sign up for Coinbase and Toshi to start using digital currency today.

Finally, if you’re a institution or professional trader, you can sign up for GDAX.

Coinbase Launches “View Balance” Integration with Fidelity

We’re excited to announce that Fidelity customers can now view their Coinbase digital asset balances as part of their portfolio hosted on Fidelity.com.

Fidelity is one of the largest global financial services corporations, with 9 million households using its retail brokerage services. Earlier this year, Fidelity began testing the view balance feature with employees who own digital assets on Coinbase. During testing, Fidelity found strong internal support for the partnership and ability to view digital asset holdings within their portfolio.

This integration demonstrates the continued commitment of traditional financial institutions to adopt digital assets and widen access for customers. As the awareness of digital assets grows, Fidelity is making it easier for customers to easily monitor their digital asset holdings alongside the rest of their investments.

To connect your Coinbase account to Fidelity, visit www.Fidelity.com or call 1–800-FIDELITY

If you don’t have a Coinbase account, sign up for one here.
