http://btcfeed.net/news/coinbase-hits-2-1m-users-milestone/

According to some recent statistics publicly displayed on the Coinbase website, the company is claiming to have 2.1 million users. That is quite a staggering number for a company that has been founded in July of 2012, even though we had seen a tremendous growth in users on a monthly basis. But are these numbers true or fake?

The numbers wouldn't really surprise me as they are pretty much the easiest to purchase and sell bitcoins for Americans. Convenient as well.

Those numbers are only going to get higher, since (like we can already see in this thread responses) every happy customer spreads the word, and u get a chain
of new clients. I think that once other business people see that there are profits to be made, exchanges will rise like mushrooms after rain, sort of what we have with
gold pawn shops now, they're on every corner in every town..

Yeah I've had nothing but good experiences with Coinbase as well and I have also recommended them to my friends when they want to get into bitcoin. However, some people have claimed that they didn't give purchased bitcoins during the previous bubble and just flagged their accounts as suspicious but that never happened to me.

It is true that they are expanding to other countries, for now I see only european countries. But from my experience I now that european people like to use their own local exchange markets better than multinational big services. They may simply don't know about coinbase too, because it was mainly US thing so far.

I guess my question is what they based the numbers on
Registered Users + Merchants + Online Entities etc.
Anyways good for them thats a lot of users

once they can speed up buy/sell times, they will make btc a lot more useable on a day to day basis.  spending your btc, then having to wait to replenish your btc makes it hard to use regularly

Other exchanges are available. Like Chef Ramsey said they obviously seem to be the best choice for Americans but each country has their own exchanges that make it easy to transact or deal with. Btc-e seems to work fairly well for the rest of the world too but all exchanges have positives and negatives depending where you live.

I haven't used Coinbase myself personally, but it does seem to be the go-to exchnage for Americans, providing your ok with providing all the relevant documentation.

I think there will always be delays or restrictions with 'legit' exchanges because of the laws and hoops they have to jump though to comply with certain money laundering laws etc.

Same here. Had one purchase that didn't go through instantaneously, by the time I had customer service one the phone, already had BTC in my account.
Top notch company.

Top notch company.
Bitcoin was created to avoid centralisation and bring unity though equality of services. And now we have central services like coinbase getting bigger every minute. I am not entirely sure it is a good or bad, it sure is convenient but in the end, eventually focusing resources in one service like that can bite us in the ass.

As long as they can keep doing what their doing, not lose any coins, and make btc more "useable" then I think they are doing the btc world a favor.

I think a key difference is that there is no forced centralization - such as with a central bank, a certificate authority, or a domain registrar (e.g. what Namecoin attempts to remedy).
