Today’s breaking news (SEC files charges against Coinbase – https://www.sec.gov/news/press-release/2023-102). I will be gathering more information and sending an email about that later this week. Just like I mentioned yesterday about Binance – if you have any funds, bitcoin, or crypto at Coinbase they are potentially at risk. Technically they were at risk last week too, but much greater risk now. I do not give financial advice – you need to evaluate the situation for yourself, BUT now is a time to evaluate and decide what you want to do.
If you have a small amount of value there, perhaps you don’t worry. If you have a large sum, you should be worried and you should evaluate what actions to take. I do not have anything confirmed other than charges have been filed. I have heard (unconfirmed) that the SEC has asked for a restraining order to limit Binance’s ability to move funds – this might include preventing you from withdrawing your funds. I have not heard anything about a restraining order for Coinbase, but it is possible too. One action you should consider is removing your funds now – before you are unable to.
If you have questions or need help on this, please do not hesitate to text / call me immediately. My goal is to educate you so you understand the issues and can make the best decisions for yourself.
