Default Meet the software engineer who used crypto to buy his $650,000 dream home

"To afford the $650,000 home, Leonard opted to use his cryptocurrency investments to cover a down payment and as proof of funds for the mortgage he took out to buy the home he opted for a mortgage, rather than buying the home outright, because of the low interest-rate environment."

He even had a Coinbase account. Its like showing the mortgage company your PayPal account as a down payment.

Why all the hate towards coinbase ?

I'm using coinbase pro and love the speed of getting in and out of the market and withdrawing any profits quickly to my bank account.

No hate from me. Most would say Coinbase is the Paypal of the crypto wallets. I have Coinbase as well.

Possibly people speaking from the experience of having their accounts closed without acceptable explanation from coin base.

I had coinbase from 2013 but didn't login there for year, recently tried to login and they asked to verify with id and utility bills. I provided them and they just banned the account. It's just same as Paypal.

I don't know what the fuss is with identifying yourself to Coinbase or any exchange.

They are holding all of your crypto investments, it's OK to let them know who are you are lol ... if anything it takes away a lot of the anxiety and stress of being locked out and you will probably invest more money.

Yes I understand but they do ban like this. Many people faces such issues with Coinbase. I use binance and kraken, never faced such issues till now.
