Crypto: Beware of Coinbase

Andrew Torba, creator of free speech platform Gab, was just banned from Coinbase:

Andrew sums it up nicely.  The whole draw to crypto is the decentralized aspect of it.  Exchanges like Coinbase, while definitely making it easier to trade from USD to certain cryptos, especially with those not very familiar with crypto, should be used with caution.  At the very least, after you make the exchange get your money off there immediately.  This should serve as a stark warning.  They’ll come for your money whether it’s the US Dollar or crypto based.  Policing on exchanges like this based on users and content is worrying.  Alt-tech needs to continue to rise and make alternatives.  Hitting them where it hurts in the wallet is the only way things will change.
