Coinbase, one of the premier bitcoin wallet services in the world, launched their new website design today so I am taking the opportunity to review their service and tell everybody that I think it is time to open a bitcoin wallet.
I say this not only because I opened my own, but because while the majority are still analyzing if bitcoin will be a valid currency or not, I say it is a store of value, an exchange mechanism, and a unit of count,therefore it is already a currency.
The question then is where to open a bitcoin wallet. There are many services based in many countries, but Coinbase is a very appealing alternative for the regular consumer who needs a smart and practical solution.
Coinbase is a bitcoin wallet, a place where you can buy, sell, send, and receive bitcoins, and a solution for merchants to get paid in bitcoins. You can use it by going to Coinbase.com or you can download their app on the Google Play store for Android devices. They don’t have an Apple iOS app because Apple doesn’t allow bitcoin transactions.
