Coinbase Reveals Most Popular Cryptos Assets Following The March Market Crash

Coinbase was recently in the spotlight, involving a glitch that popped up on the platform.

Not too long ago, it’s been revealed that a crypto trader and tech analyst said that they spotted a massive error while checking out the order book on the leading crypto exchange Coinbase.

He goes by the name Captain Scio, and he posted an image of the exchange’s trade history on the past Sunday. It really seemed as if someone picked up 42,085 BTC for 18 cents!

“Just saw this happen in the daily. 42,000 BTC at 18 cents? That’s a heavy error and overload for Coinbase,” he posted.

Coinbase told the Daily Hodl (the online publication that revealed what had happened) that the problem was just a glitch and it had been fixed.
