PSA: Coinbase large transfer 72 hour mandatory delay period. Move your coins now. You are out of time.

Folks, Coinbase has a 72 hour delay period if you are moving a considerable amount of coins off their exchange. If you plan on moving coins off before the fork, please do it right now. I did. I'm delayed. I want to help others not miss the end of month deadline. Cheers.

This period is like your favorite restaurant closing for a remodel.

Everyone loses while it's closed. Some customers are lost foever, some complain that it didn't need to change and others can't wait till it reopens.

There's not much anyone can do but when it reopens the service will be much faster and hopefully bring in more customers.

Lets hope that the remodel prevents anyone from standing in the doorways slowing people from getting in and out. In other words preventing spamming efforts that falsely slow down transactions, drive up fees and create a phony urgency to scale recklessly.
