Coinbase Adds User-to-User Transfer

 

Now from any Coinbase user account, transfers can be made between users using XRP (Ripple’s native currency) or USDC (Circle’s stablecoin made with CENTRE). The service is offered completely free of charges, and is basically instant. When making transfers to individuals using a non-Coinbase wallet, the fees will be “a nominal on-chain network fee for sending outside of Coinbase.” The company is quick to point out that this is not related to their institutional services. “It’s primarily designed as an educational resource for customers to learn about the benefits of using crypto for cross-border payments… is not a money remittance; rather, it is a cryptocurrency transaction with conversion into local currency after receipt.” - Coinbase representative

The Chinese central government agency in charge of formulating macroeconomic policies has recently referred to Bitcoin mining as an “undesirable” industry. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) published a draft proposal  for Guiding Industry Restructuring, which looks to put much less emphasis on Bitcoin.
