The leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately. The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged two high-ranking officials and an ex-employee of Coinbase for insider trading. In addition, the exchange is facing a probe from the SEC over the listings of several crypto assets on its platform.
The SEC is examining Coinbase for listing assets that can be classified as unregistered securities. If that wasn’t enough, COIN shares fell 60% in the last three months sending signals that things aren’t alright. If you consider withdrawing cryptos from Coinbase and transferring it to a crypto wallet, this article details the step-by-step process.
