Coinbase is one of the best know and well established places to hold bitcoin and other digital currencies, It is also a good place to buy and sell crypto currencies at a profit, It also very low fees each time you buy and sell.
On some trading platforms like Etoro you can loose money at a very fast rate as it works on a leverage system, in other words you don't actually own the stock, share, crypto etc, So if the prices drop and you have done a buy trade you can end up loosing all the money, Buying digital currencies on Coinbase is different because if the price of the digital currency drops you wont lose all your money as you will still own the units of crypto you hold, obviously it's not a good idea to buy any stock, share or crypto while the price is too high as it has only has one direction to go and that's down.
The risky part of buying crypto currencies is if you buy from a platform or store on a wallet that is not established and also if you buy from non established crypto projects as these are just companies and crypto companies can go bust like any other company which means the currency the issue will become worthless, Coinbase will only allow you to buy and sell digital money from digital currency companies that they have researched, Knowing this gives me much more confidence to be a digital money holder at Coinbase.
If your new to Bitcoin and digital currencies and you have heared of people making millions well yes this is true but unfortunately that is a train many of us missed as the bitcoin was trading for pennies back then and since then has spiked to thousands of pounds, however I think it's still worth while to hold some digital currency as it has a lot of future potential.

Another great Digital Currency trading platform is Bittrex Global settings on there are take a little while to get used to but after an hour or so you should pretty much know how everything works and there is a huge choice of Digital Currencies to invest in, minimum trades are between £5 - £10 which is a lot less than platforms like Etoro, I haven't used Bittrex for a while but as far a I remember they have introduced auto sell settings that will sell your altcoins when it reaches the price you want to sell at, unlike Coinbase when Bittrex sells your altcoins it converts into bitcoin you would then need to send the bitcoin to coinbase and convert it back into £pounds or Euros depending which Country your in.
