    So now on coinbase I can buy bitcoin and trade It on coinbase instantly, but I have to wait 5 days before i send it to a different wallet. Any ways around this?

    Is that new?! Never had to wait before, that is some bullshit. What if it depreciates while your waiting?

    Use different exchanges, like anycoindirect. Instant.

    I have yet to find a solution to being able to easily deposit funds, purchase bitcoin, and send to my wallet in a timely and efficient manner....

    Who has the fucking answer?
    Gemini takes days
    CashApp hasn’t responded to my support requests

    What’s next?

    Purchase with debit card for instant transfers. Downside is that it costs a little more

    That part is instant, you can buy it and immediately trade it on the app. it's once you have the bitcoin cleared it makes you wait to send it off the coinbase app now

    I just bought 10 dollars worth and it let me transfer instantly to my jaxx wallet. Maybe try again. How much is the transfer?

    Found a loophole. Weird but if I go from bank to US wallet, that's instant, then us wallet to buy bitcoin, that's instant, then I can send it instant . Go figure

    What was the loophole? I just ran into this same thing and it is making me wait two fucking weeks.

    Oh misread that.

    I have a good amount in there that I can't move or withdraw. Sounds like I can buy more but what do I do with the funds I have already purchased?

    False alarm, tried again and I bought bitcoin just fine, went to send it and it says it's on hold for 6 days .Ugh

    Didn’t work for me either. I just transferred it all into cash. I’ll just withdraw it after the hold period is over. Lost $40 from yesterday with these stupid transactions and volatility in the market.

    Fuck coinbase. Going to cash app.
