Coinbase to Add Dash, Ripple and Stratis?
An interesting and apparently real tweet has been published by the user @Crypto_Agent where it shows an interesting image of the Coinbase site. The user claimed to have seen the information that Coinbase would be adding Dash, Ripple and Stratis.
Since Coinbase has not yet released any official announcement , some people claim that this tweet is just another Christmas joke while other users see it as a possibility, at least Ripple is a highly requested cryptocurrency and many traders would love to have it on board .
From a technical point of view, the possibility of Coinbase adding new cryptocurrencies to its portfolio is entirely possible.
However, in recent days has been strongly criticized by its users sience the platform was completely paralyzed for a few hours arguing that they have problems with high volumes of traffic which of course has created speculation about the liquidity of the Exhange.

The possible entry to Coinbase would represent a positive data, so we would see an increase in the price and market capitalization of these cryptocurrencies.
Coinbase plays a very important role, but unfortunately if they will continue to have technical problems and delays many users will simply leave the platform and that would affect the price of cryptocurrencies indirectly.
What are the dangers for the average user of Coinbase?
We have to accept that, having our cryptocurrencies in an online Wallet is really dangerous and users are vulnerable to problems of the website leaving them without access to it.
Always remember that is always better to keep your cryptocurrency in an cold wallet if you do not plan to exchange in the near future.
Coinbase is a platform regulated by the US government but the latest technical problems and the suspicion of employees investing in BCH have created mistrust among investors.
