Is Safe?

Here, I analyzed for malware and malicious content to check if it was legit or a scam:

I checked on Sucuri, and it returned as a medium security risk. Results: Sucuri scan for Sucuri results

Sucuri says is a medium security risk because it returned a 403 Forbidden status on the URL

Security hardening flaws:

Best Crypto Platform For Trading

Coinbase as a stock is one of the largest holders in Cathie Wood's ARKK fund. It's stock price keeps skyrocketing. I view it as the most reliable crypto platform to sign up with. Its features are good and the service is reliable. I use Coinbase as the main crypto platform. You can use Coinbase to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies. Coinbase has one of the largest repositories for all the different crypto you can buy. I still like Tezos.
