    "I was just getting started in buying crypto currencies and I was looking for a good platform to get started. At coinbase I was able to create my wallet without a problem. I was also able to buy bitcoin quickly and easily. The interface is east to use and most of all I trust them.

    "This market seems very active and supports a lot of different cryptocurrencies. It's very easy to see the price history for all of these currencies at a glance, so users can make informed decisions. The design of the website isn't the most innovative, but it's very functional.
