Serena’s investment in Coinbase is a means to fast-track the adoption of cryptocurrency in the heart of both Americans and global wealthy celebrities due to the figure she represents in the world of sport.

The Purpose of Coinbase

To trade in cryptocurrencies, a platform is needed to be created, which will stand as a means of communicating with digital currency network. Coinbase technically stands as intermediary when attempting to communicate with blockchain and store cryptocurrency.

Coinbase is referred to as Digital Asset Exchange Company (GDAX) because it provides an avenue to trade digital currencies and also helps in sending information about all transactions completed to the blockchain network for verification.

Also, Coinbase represents a wallet where any cryptocurrency can be stored, with an application that converts Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and other digital assets with fiat currencies in 32 countries.

Coinbase has reportedly completed the exchange of over $50 billion worth of cryptocurrency and have served over 10 million invertors around the world.

How to Trade Cryptocurrency with Coinbase

To buy and sell cryptocurrency using Coinbase, linking to bank account, debit or credit card will be needed to fund your account. Have it in mind (while using bank account) that the transaction verification will be delayed for almost four days which would attract higher transaction fee.

The same delay applies to selling Bitcoin (BTC), it could also take 4 days before you receive the bank alert of the sale you made.

There is advantage of lower limits while using credit or debit card, all you have to do to purchase digital currencies is to fund your Coinbase account from your bank using your valid card, which will reflect in your wallet immediately.
