1  Economy / Speculation / Regarding the HF, what is Coinbase thinking? on: July 27, 2017, 02:52:26 PM
First, I am a rookie at understanding this, and I am trying to understand, so please be gentle...

So Coinbase has made a public statement they will not support BCC.
So won't a hardfork, (since one fork will win and one will wither and die,) make all Bitcoin held by that exchange (Coinbase, CB) worthless in the end if BCC "wins"?  What are they thinking?  Do they want to go out of business?

They explain that the hardfork has its security concerns, 51% attack, whatever, fine I get that,  but if BCC becomes the new main fork, CB would have to be betting on some catastrophic failure of BCC in order to justify this position.  That seems a high risk position to me,,, unless this is just posturing for some reason and they do end up supporting BCC at the last minute (assuming they have to act in supporting the new software before they are locked out on Aug 1) 

So am I correct that as for Coinbase present position it is "BTC or die"??

Must read book about the Federal Reserve, it's history and it's implications for our future. 

Anyone involved with Bitcoin would love this book and what it means for the owners of Bitcoin.

Is this a possibility?  Since some states can have razor thin victories and defeats, could this be an answer to a verifiable election?
