In August 2019, Coinbase announced that it was targeted by a sophisticated hacking attack attempt in mid-June. This reported attack used spear-phishing and social engineering tactics (including sending fake e-mails from compromised email accounts and created a landing page at the University of Cambridge) and two Firefox browser zero-day vulnerabilities. One of the Firefox vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to escalate privileges from JavaScript on a browser page (CVE-2019–11707) and the second one could allow the attacker to escape the browser sandbox and execute code on the host computer (CVE-2019–11708). Coinbase's security team detected and blocked the attack, the network was not compromised, and no cryptocurrency was stolen.[39][40][41]


On February 16, 2018, Coinbase admitted that some customers were overcharged in error for credit and debit purchases of cryptocurrencies. The problem was initiated when banks and card issuers changed the merchant category code (MCC) for cryptocurrency purchases earlier this month. This meant that cryptocurrency payments would now be processed as "cash advances", meaning that banks and credit card issuers could begin charging customers cash-advance fees for cryptocurrency purchases. Any customers who purchased cryptocurrency on their exchange between January 22 and February 11, 2018 could have been affected. At first, Visa blamed Coinbase, telling the Financial Times on February 16 that it had "not made any systems changes that would result in the duplicate transactions cardholders are reporting." However, the latest statement from Visa and Worldpay on the Coinbase blog clarifies: "This issue was not caused by Coinbase."[45]

don’t use coinbase. They held my funds and I couldn’t use my bitcoins until their value dropped by 1/4. this company is awful. I verified my ID, bank account, email, and everything and they lied and said initially it takes 3-4 days for funds to be available. once the bought the bitcoin they said it will take one week. and that is still a lie because after one week the funds are NOT available. liars !!!!


NO WAY. How do some many people trust Coinbase with their money When their website’s software is full of faulty programs that they won’t or can’t fix. IE, I tried to add a new debit card to my account. I gave them my cards info and was told to check my account for two small charges made by coinbase and enter the amounts in a designated page. Both amounts were over $3.00, but the verification page only allowed me to submit amounts under $2.00. I was never able to add another card to my account. For me, no big deal,… Read more »


Coinbase is a all around awesome platform to quickly and swiftly get into the world of crypto assets. Trusted them from day one and so far so good ! The only negative situation I have encountered has been 1 . I bought $25 dollars of bitcoin and was charged twice but only got $25 worth of bitcoin .... contacted coinbase and that very same day got a email back from them saying they knew about the situation and that they where on top of it because it happened to more people that week... a day or two pass and I received another email saying my problem was resolved..... it wasn’t and still hasn’t been resolved! Thank God I only bought $25 and not a lot more ! It’s $25 I’m not going to be after anyone for that little amount of money but it definitely impacted my good experience with coinbase and their over all standing with me , my friends and my family after this situation that has still not been resolved .

Coinbase recently announced that its customers in supported jurisdictions can send, receive, buy, and sell the USD Coin stablecoin (USDC) on its website and mobile applications. This marks Coinbase first entry into stablecoins, which have a fundamental difference as compared to other cryptocurrencies. A USDC is pegged to the price of a single US dollar (USD). Coinbase explains that one USDC is represented by one USD on the Ethereum blockchain.


Over 98% of cryptocurrency is stored securely offline and the rest is protected by industry-leading online security. Your account is also subject to the same scrupulous safety standards, including multi-stage verification and bank-level security. You can even lock the app with a passcode, or remotely disable your phone’s access to the app if it gets lost or stolen.


As compared to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, a USDC doesn’t move on its own accord as its price is backed by a fiat currency in this case. This means that stablecoins such as the USDC can reduce the price volatility usually associated with cryptocurrencies, so they are an ideal way to store value. That’s why Coinbase believes that USDC can be used to buy items in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, such as tickets for blockchain-based games. 


         3. 性能体现不一样 从技术上讲,路由器和三层交换机在数据包交换操作上存在着明显区别。路由器一般由基于微处理器的软件路由引擎执行数据包交换,而三层交换机通过硬件执行数据包交换。三层交换机在对第一个数据流进行路由后,它将会产生一个MAC地址与IP地址的映射表,当同样的数据流再次通过时,将根据此表直接从二层通过而不是再次路由,从而消除了路由器进行路由选择而造成网络的延迟,提高了数据包转发的效率。同时,三层交换机的路由查找是针对数据流的,它利用缓存技术,很容易利用ASIC技术来实现,因此,可以大大节约成本,并实现快速转发。而路由器的转发采用最长匹配的方式,实现复杂,通常使用软件来实现,转发效率较低。 正因如此,从整体性能上比较的话,三层交换机的性能要远优于路由器,非常适用于数据交换频繁的局域网中;而路由器虽然路由功能非常强大,但它的数据包转发效率远低于三层交换机,更适合于数据交换不是很频繁的不同类型网络的互联,如局域网与互联网的互联。如果把路由器,特别是高档路由器用于局域网中,则在相当大程度上是一种浪费(就其强大的路由功能而言),而且还不能很好地满足局域网通信性能需求,影响子网间的正常通信。


从广义上来看,网络交换机分为两种:广域网交换机和局域网交换机。广域网交换机主要应用于电信领域,提供通信用的基础平台。而局域网交换机则应用于局域网络,用于连接终端设备,如PC机及网络打印机等。从传输介质和传输速度上可分为以太网交换机、快速以太网交换机、千兆以太网交换机、FDDI交换机、ATM交换机和令牌环交换机等。从规模应用上又可分为企业级交换机、部门级交换机和工作组交换机等。各厂商划分的尺度并不是完全一致的,一般来讲,企业级交换机都是机架式,部门级交换机可以是机架式(插槽数较少),也可以是固定配置式,而工作组级交换机为固定配置式(功能较为简单)。另一方面,从应用的规模来看,作为骨干交换机时,支持500个信息点以上大型企业应用的交换机为企业级交换机,支持300个信息点以下中型企业的交换机为部门级交换机,而支持100个信息点以内的交换机为工作组级交换机。 [3]
