COINBASE SECURITY GETTING RIDICULOUSLY COMPLEX
So I wanted to push some LTC to Coinexx, and Coinexx is waiting.
I sign into Coinbase, and use the 2 factor authentication, and also
reply to the device authorization email… and then I initiate the
send of LTC. After trying it fresh 3 times, and getting “this transaction
will be delayed” (and cancelling) I finally decide to send…
Coinbase says “this transaction will be delayed”. Then I find out
the funds I sent are frozen, and I get an email that the delay is for
72 hours !!! The LTC account is debited; and I’m stuck…
Meanwhile, Coinexx is waiting… and will probably time out if it’s
really a 3 day delay. Exactly how they are going to determine my
transaction is “authorized”… right now, I have no clue.
I guess I need a better Crypto facility than Coinbase ?..
In general this whole Internet security B.S. is getting ridiculous.
Coinexx is now using Cloudflare, the nemesis of the Internet !! It
blocked my access to Coinexx, no explanation, probably determined
some “black box” combination of VPN usage and U.S. perhaps…
but I speculate.
JUST SO MUCH COMPLEXITY. I don’t want to start
a great big discussion on this, but apparently I need to find a more
reliable Crypto facility than Coinbase… ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?
In the past, I’ve found Coinbase just fine. But things are changing…?
[EDIT] Looks like I just triggered their identify verification, which includes
upload of Drivers License front/back and a webcam photo check…
OK, trying to say calm here; but the sheer complexity of all this could
surely be simplified… Just venting, I know… I’m still game, but things
are just getting ridiculously complex navigating the internet these
days; and I’m not mentioning Googles ridiculous "check all the pictures
showing storefronts, crosswalks, chimneys… " and the list goes on !!!
[EDIT2] Coinbase was very quick in verifying License and webcam
photo and released the transaction… So why am I complaining? They
are protecting me, and satisfying “nanny state regulations”… What
could be better???
[EDIT3] AND FINALLY, Coinexx immediately auto-credited the deposit,
even after the lengthy delay while I figured out what the H*LL Coinbase
needed !!! All’s well that ends well; now back to trading?.. LOL
Here’s a CloudFlare mediated blockage of Coinexx access.
I worked around that.
Here’s Coinbases “will be delayed” message. But they did not say it would
be for 72 hours !!!
AND FINALLY… THIS NICE LITTLE EMAIL:
