Not happy with Coinbase dragging their feet on SegWit integration? Follow these steps:

  1. Sign the SegWit petition
  2. Use an alternative wallet/exchange that has implemented SegWit.
  3. Tweet @brian_armstrong and @coinbase and let them know you've signed the petition and have moved to an alternative provider.

Remember, this doesn't just affect customers of Coinbase, it affects the whole network. Not optimizing transactions (with SegWit and batching) inflates the fees for everyone else. This is irresponsible for such a large company in this growing industry.

Please do your "bit" and help make the issue known as best you can.

Thanks r/bitcoin
