❓ Who are Robinhood & Coinbase? ❓

Coinbase was founded back in 2012 and is one of the most well established crypto exchanges out there. They even got listed on the US stock market this year too.

But how popular is Coinbase? Well, they have over 56 million users, trusted by over 8,000 institutions and log $335 billion in quarterly trade volume.

Coinbase does have an office in San Francisco. However, they have transitioned to a remote-first company over the last year. Despite that, the exchange holds a plethora of licenses

Robinhood was founded in 2013 and this mobile-only broker raised a crazy $5.6 billion in funding. Like Coinbase, they recently launched their IPO.

They are headquartered in California and are a FINRA-regulated broker-dealer. Robinhood are also registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Robinhood’s crypto product also appears to be wildly popular with 9.5 million people using the app to trade crypto in Q1 of this year.

🌎 Country Support 🌎

Robinhood only accepts US users right now. Those based outside of the US will be glad to know that Coinbase accepts over 100 countries and people in every US State except Hawaii.

💪 Supported Assets 💪

In short, Robinhood has a limited selection of just seven cryptos for trading. That includes Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Ethereum Classic and Litecoin.

Coinbase has around 75 different cryptos on the shelves.

🔒 Security 🔒

Coinbase claims that not a single customer has lost funds due to a breach of the Coinbase or Coinbase Pro trading platform. This being said, users have been caught out by email account takeovers, SIM swap attacks and password breaches. That has led to some customers losing funds.

That’s why it is so important to take the security of your crypto exchange accounts seriously.

This being said, Coinbase does store 97% of user funds offline to protect against hacks. The other 3% is kept in insured hot wallets. Oh yes, USD cash balances for US residents are also covered up to $250k under FDIC insurance.

Robinhood also stores the majority of customer crypto offline in cold storage. I have not been able to find the exact percentage. However, Robinhood has crime insurance that protects a portion of the assets

They also have coin management security protocols in place, which means that coin transfers require authorization from a select group of people. This list is constantly changing and is not disclosed internally or externally.

💳 Deposit Methods 💳

Robinhood only supports ACH deposits. Coinbase supports bank transfer, PayPal, debit card and credit card. These methods are available on a country by country basis.

💰 Trading Fees 💰

At Coinbase you’ll be charged a spread of 0.5% for crypto buys and sells. On top of that, you’ll also be charged a flat fee based on the value of your trade.

Whereas on Coinbase Pro the max fee is 0.5% – so, I would use that instead.

Robinhood markets itself as commission free. However, there is a cost. Robinhood essentially adjusts market orders to limit orders and jacks up the buy orders by 1% and the sell orders by 5%.

📈Trading Experience 📈

Watch the vid for my thoughts on this.

🎧 Customer Support 🎧

Both platforms have had bad reviews when it comes to customer support. So, don’t expect to be blown away by incredible customer support here.

  1. Which US exchange are you guys using? If Robinhood enables crypto withdrawals, will you be more likely to use them? Keen to hear! Also, I will be doing an in-depth video into Robinhood's scandalous business model which I am sure you guys will enjoy! 😉 Don't forget to follow me on my other social channels for all the content that you are not getting here 👉 https://guy.coinbureau.com/socials/

  2. Hey Guy, love your vids man! Really appreciate your unbiased approach. Your vids are very educational and occasionally I’ll share a stat you mentioned with others, and I’m getting drilled to “site my sources” so was wondering if you could pls share where you got the stat that only 0.004% of CB users have lost funds due to hacked accounts, etc..I personally like CB but apparently there’s many people who don’t lol. I’d really appreciate your feedback!

  3. The SEC will be the unelected bureaucratic entity that will destroy crypto for the small investors. They are now literally an extortionist that will be the final arbiter for crypto currencies in the United States. Simply a mafia gang in suits backed by a corrupt US government that is now bowing to CCP control. I see a huge storm just over the horizon. If you own coins, get them off the exchanges and keep them in your pocket. Ride out the storm and see the real cream rise to the top like it's supposed to be in a capitalistic society.

  4. As a UK customer, UK support seemed lacking as Guy said "Cut and Paste answers" and no scooby on an actual answer/resolution. Ended up moving money away as a result and limitting exposure. Assuming eToro operates very similarly to Robinhood

  5. Hey Guy,

    As far as I know, as in the case of Hawaii, residents living in Puerto Rico (US Territory) do not have access to Crypto Assets via the Robinhood app. Nonetheless, thankfully, Coinbase works perfectly fine in this tropical paradise. Lastly, I would like to thank you and your team for all the excellent educational content that is consistently uploaded. It is much appreciated.

  6. Coinbase sucks because of all the fees. They literally rip u off and is a scam. Trading on Robinhood is much better lower fees and transparency. Coinbase has so many hidden shit they do that is so sus

  7. DIGITAL POUND incoming
    Mass adoption imminent Ripple Labs XRP registered company London 🤩🤩🤩
    DIGITAL ‘Pound ‘Foundation’
    Companies house UK 🇬🇧
    Friedman Director – Ripple Attorney

  8. You only need to get about a minute pass the introduction to realize this is a straight up bash fest on the "questionable at best Robinhood platform". Which I could have predicted out of the gates.

    If you care for the fundamentals of crypto and want to actually own some of the potential future cryptocurriencies of the world, you shouldn't use Robinhood, because as of now you don't truly own it if you can't custody it yourself.
