I really can not stand how they are handling Bitcoin. It is clear they do not want a truly decentralized system to flourish, despite what their framework says.
I am not a fan of secret agendas and greedy hands. It is possbile to make money and be respectable, but Coinbase has chosen a different path.

Goodbye Coinbase. For your sake, I hope you can redeem yourself. But for now, you are losing a customer for a company with standards and vaules that actually reflect in their actions.
