Coinbase Leads Charge In The Consumerization Of Bitcoin

Because why do anything other than try out hot technologies on Memorial
Day, I just bought some Bitcoin. I might finally play Dots and maybe 3D-print an
ear later this afternoon. I would not have bought my .1 ($13.17) in Bitcoin if it
weren’t for a startup called Coinbase, which is “one of the places that looked
less sketchy” according to TechCrunch editor and Bitcoin bug John Biggs. “It’s
one of the ones I would tell my Mom to use,” Biggs insisted. Indeed, if your mom
knows how to link a bank account to a Fidelity or Charles Schwab account and buy
mutual funds, buying Bitcoin through Coinbase is a similar deal. Just input her
account and routing number, verify a couple of small transactions and your mom
will be one step closer to Silk Road
