Coinbase alternative

    Hi All,

    So I've put in a few quid into Litecoin over the last few months and made a nice profit in the last 2 days.

    My problem is whenever I try to cash out (like last night when LTC was very high) the Coinbase goes mad and won't let me do anything.

    Even now, when it started dropping I can't access the buy/sell option.

    Can you recommend an alternative that isn't as bogged down by new users?

    I just want to have a solid chance of cashing out if I so desire, without getting a ton of messages that there is a high amount of traffic on the exchange and I can't do it.....

    Rant over....

    Any help appreciated!

    I use Revolut and find them great with low fees plus they issue you with a credit card that works out very cheap at converting Euro to Sterling...

    Have you actually sent coinbase money or are you buying using your card? No exchange will let you take money out if you haven't sent them money through SEPA order. I use GDAX (run by coinbase) - no fees.

    I'd love to use GDAX, tried to sign up shortly after I signed up for Coinbase, no joy, not answering emails, can't get verified, they just have too many people joining at once.
