It appears that there are well positioned people in the cryptospace that have not lost their sense of humor despite their high standing. Yes Jessie Powell, you hehehe.

Also, this is simply a crafty effort to do or achieve market manipulation by Coinbase. It deserves more than trolling.



Coinbase, the largest US-based digital currency exchange, has officially announced that it is “exploring the addition” of five new cryptocurrencies to its platform. The five cryptocurrencies being considered are Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC), and 0x (ZRX).

Coinbase has come under fire in the past — particularly regarding its listing of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which preceded allegations of insider trading.

Despite the apparent attempt at remaining transparent, the statement of intent has led many to question why the exchange giant is even making an announcement of its “exploration” at all.


Coinbase competitor Kraken — a US-based cryptocurrency exchange and “the world’s largest bitcoin exchange in euro volume and liquidity” — nevertheless took the opportunity to troll the San Francisco-based industry leader, tweeting:

Exciting and important revelation for the community today. Kraken has been contemplating the exploration of maybe adding over 1600 new coins, pending the outcome of our highly sophisticated review process. For a glimpse of the possibilities: https://coinmarketcap.com/all/views/all/

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Coinbase = Forkbase.

The trolling doesn't seem to stop with Kraken countering Coinbase.

Brian Kelly from CNBC suddenly started to call BCH BCash when explaining the situation that made the market throw around with insider trading allegations. He was pointed at as a BCash shill for a while, but he apparantly got bored of it and starts shilling some other stuff right now. People in the comment section were as surprised, lol. Just shows how they ride each coin based on its momentum as media platform.

Here is the video if anyone is interested; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YobVYLJ2KoU
