“For context, a bunch of big Twitter account have put #Bitcoin in their bios. Elon Musk is the biggest. Now $BTC is up almost 15% in the last 24 hours.”
The GameStop effect has completely upended the crypto market now. There’s a big Twitter-led $btc pump happening today and Coinbase — basically the Robinhood for entry-level crypto trading — has frozen USD purchases. Just tested it myself. pic.twitter.com/xpJCQjA0uh

The popular trading platform Robinhood suspended buying for plenty of assets including GME. Coinbase suffers platform downtime and technical difficulties plenty of time. There were a lot recorded in 2020 including the BTC price moves in May and April.
Speaking in the previous Coinbase news, The tech giant released the update on its mobile operating system to address the latest security flaw that could threaten the security of mobile crypto wallets so the Coinbase dev says that the users have to update their devices.
