Coinbase glitch sends crypto users into panic mode

By LeftFooted | bitcoinea | 2 Mar 2024

On February 28, as Bitcoin was climbing and climbing and climbing, several Coinbase users, including myself, experienced a glitch and saw their balance go to zero.

The funds were still there, it just looked empty.

When I logged in and saw my new balance of $0.00, I figured it may have been a glitch, and so I tested my theory by using some of the funds, via the Coinbase card, to pay some bills.

And it worked.

Some think this is actually good news.

When this happens, it's usually because the market is in such a frenzy that the servers can't cope.

We're looking at the start of a massive bull run. Bitcoin will surely hit a new ATH in the near future, and other coins might follow suit.

So stay tuned for that. And for more glitches, presumably.
