Coinbase, the one-year old Bitcoin startup that landed a $5 million investment earlier this year, is opening its virtual currency banking system up to the masses after introducing SMS-based actions.

The new feature allows anyone on any kind of mobile device to use all the features of the service. After verifying their number and setting up a PIN, users simply send a text using one of the set shortcodes. Transactions that affect account balance — send, buy and sell – are confirmed by a voice call during which the customer is prompted to key in their PIN.

Well, I guess that's good if you gotta have BTC now, but only carrying a feature phone.  Undecided

This is PR and not news. While I am a fan of Coinbase, I would prefer that they don't use this forum for their PR. There are other forums specifically for this kind of post.
