On Tuesday, Coinbase issued a rare apology to UK and EU customers. The peoples the major cryptocurrency exchange said in a blog post have been affected by weeks of systems outages and trading restrictions. But, Coinbase did not address, nor apologize for, its global troubles in keeping all operations running smoothly through heavy trading days. Coinbase justified:
- The reason is problems on months of heavy customer trading activity from platform newcomers and returning accounts.
- Coinbase placing temporary restrictions on accounts for which it needed to collect more information.
- Coinbase in the post refused to give ground on its regulatory obligations but said it “can do a better job in communicating” those burdens to customers.
- The company said it is streamlining its information collection procedures to help salve regulatory lockouts.
