Coinbase forcing customers to Plaid

Simply acquired an e mail from Coinbase that they’ve apparently unlinked all of their customers financial institution accounts they usually’re forcing everybody to solely use Plaid to relink accounts. The identical firm that simply confronted a category motion lawsuit.

I am mainly out on Coinbase, and what a dumb transfer to unlink all of your clients financial institution accounts. I used to be fortunately DCA’ing each month, however now I am closing my account and transferring to a different trade.

Options? I am undecided what different individuals are utilizing however open to recommendations for somebody who needs to routinely arrange a month-to-month purchase. I am curious why Coinbase would even do that — all I can consider is that they acquired some huge cash from Plaid to pressure customers to go there so Plaid can harvest much more knowledge from again accounts.

Actually a reasonably shitty apply by Coinbase.

  1. There may be an option to link your bank manually. Gemini uses plaid, but also allows for manual linking. It requires sending a bank wire which cost 25-30 bucks usually. But after that, ach deposits in one click.

    Not sure about anything automatic on there.

  2. Here’s the email.

    As part of our continued effort to ensure the safety and security of our customers, we’re updating the payment method linking system for all banks that support instant verification system (Plaid). Any customer bank accounts that support Plaid will no longer be allowed to use the older, test deposit method.

    For those customers whose bank accounts have already been unlinked from their Coinbase account, we understand this may have caused some confusion. Your bank account will need to be relinked using our instant verification system to ensure your payment method utilizes the safest, most reliable service.

    If your current bank account is supported by Plaid, but your bank was originally linked via test deposit, please be aware that your account may be unlinked in the near future to support instant verification.

    For relinking a Plaid supported bank account, you can verify your account by entering your online banking credentials with the instant verification process – you may either complete this during a Buy or Deposit, or by navigating to your Settings > Payment Methods in your Coinbase account.

    For more information on payment methods, please see our help center article here.

    Your banking credentials are never sent to Coinbase, and are shared with an integrated, encrypted, trusted third-party called Plaid Technologies Inc. More info about how your bank account information is secured can be found here.

  3. Same. Coinbase forced me to switch a year ago, for ACH transfers not even the instant shit, venmo did recently to just use their normal services as well. All these companies letting a third party have all the financial info seems like a terrible idea.

  4. I have no so such email from Coinbase, but I swore plaid was what I was always using to link bank accounts. The money gets credited immediately, but I have to wait a few days to withdraw the crypto I spent it on. Same with BinanceUS, and they are 10 business days for withdrawal.

  5. Can confirm from my end. I bought some today and was surprised that my bank account was unlinked and I had to sign up to plaid.

    I didn’t know that Plaid did that about our data.

  6. Yep they switched me over a long time ago. I hate it, and I go to my linked bank, reset my password, then link via plaid, make a transfer, then change my bank password, every time.

    I hate it because plaid stores way too much information and is doing stuff in the background, seemingly constantly. Within a day or two, it tells me my account became unlinked (because my password changed) and makes me do it again. So the only way for it to know this is that Plaid stores the bank username and password, and re-attempts verification, repeatedly.

    I don’t even store my own bank password. Why would I trust plaid to do that?

  7. I don’t trust Plaid.

  8. Coinbase won’t let me move the tiny amount I’ve kept there on pupose,, to sue THEM for their fuqry! I’ve kept 100 in a meme coin for strategy,to be able to look inside and test restrictions etc…

    And tonight I am unable to move DOGE off to a defi wallet. I’ve attempted to move it to 2 seperate defi wallets and it says the adress is wrong. Now CdC isn’t doing this, those addresses are VALID to CdC.

    I’d say CB is locking up due to liquididty issues.

    Why am I growing more and more frisky as I catch up to the markets tonight?


  9. Is this US only? I’m not using Coinbase, but I’d be surprised if they wouldn’t allow direct SEPA in Europe. Might even be against regulations not to offer it, but even if not it would be really stupid…

  10. Every time I see an exchange asking me to use plaid I just back out. No third party will ever have my banking log in credentials…. Ever. It’s absolutely insane any company expects me to.

    Just got the email. Holy shit, this is insane.

    “A trusted third party”

    Now do I need to set up a new bank account someone where just for crypto?

  11. American business and their stupid practices. Im glad i didnt use this shit. Coinbase can go to bankruptcy now. Why use this shit hole when u have bianance kucoin or bybit.

  12. They are only making users switch to Plaid if their bank supports Plaid in the first place.

    My bank doesn’t support Plaid and so far I haven’t had to make a switch.

  13. Get a in between bank account. U get a free checking account and then u transfer money to that account from your bank. Then link that account to plaid. That way you personal bank cant be stolen

  14. I opened up a bank account at a separate bank just for coinbase transactions. They can’t steal money if there is nothing in there. Deposit money, straight to coinbase. Cash out of coinbase, physically take money out when available and go to regular bank.
