Coinbase: prioritize BCH as a base trading currency on GDAX
This petition had 815 supporters
The Bitcoin community is overwhelmingly in support of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which is a large-block coin fork of Bitcoin consistent with the upgrade plans laid out by the coin's founder, Satoshi Nakamoto. You are no doubt aware of the overwhelming demand for Bitcoin Cash as it caused both Coinbase and Gdax to crash when the coin was launched.
As arguably one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges in the world, we ask that you continue to stand by your company priorities (as listed on your "Mission" page) and continue to be the "most trusted" and "easiest to use" platform for your users by making BCH a base trading pair on Gdax.
You are no doubt aware that Bitcoin Core (BTC) is becoming increasingly fragile, expensive, and unreliable to transact on, with companies like blockexplorer.com deciding to deprioritize BTC as "Legacy Bitcoin" and focus on Bitcoin Cash as "Bitcoin." Having BCH as a base trading currency will make it easier for your Legacy Bitcoin customers who are migrating to Bitcoin Cash to trade on your platform going forward.
As stated on your Mission page: "Imagine if every payment in the world was as fast, cheap, and global as sending an email."
Bitcoin Cash is the continuation of that mission.
We thank you for taking the time to consider our request and look forward to your response.
