As of today, 80% of all Bitcoins that will ever exist have been mined. The next halving is a little over two years away, at which point inflation will fall to 2%. This means central banks can only get at most 20% of BTC supply. Unless you sell it to them for their fiat altcoin.

GDAX has now kept over $10,000 worth of my BTC hostage from me for a MONTH.

Reddit please upvote for visibility. The BTC that I deposited into GDAX on 11/30 has still yet to be credited to my account (tx has over 4000 confirmations). This is after having no issues with gdax for years.

After calling, emailing, and receiving only template responses at best from Coinbase, I’m at a loss for what to do.

If you’re considering trading, please for your own sake check out alternatives. I’m not saying Coinbase is a fraud, I’m just saying they’re spread too thin in case you actually do need to get in touch with their staff. I’ve personally moved all btc to fiat and fiat to btc to Gemini.
