In a recent social media uproar, Coinbase has emphatically denied allegations that it had instituted a $5,000 per week limit on Bitcoin withdrawals. The rumors began circulating after a user’s post on X (formerly Twitter) claimed to have encountered such limitations, gaining significant attention in the digital asset community.

On October 24, a post from a user on X garnered substantial attention, alleging that Coinbase had implemented a policy limiting Bitcoin withdrawals from the platform to a maximum of $5,000 per week. The post quickly went viral.

However, Coinbase swiftly responded to these claims, with a spokesperson labeling them as “inaccurate” and refuting the existence of any such withdrawal policy. The spokesperson clarified that the ability to withdraw funds from Coinbase depends on the specific payment method used and encouraged users to consult Coinbase’s official policy regarding account limits and withdrawal procedures.

The unfounded rumors concerning withdrawal limits coincided with a brief interruption in Coinbase’s ability to process trades. According to Coinbase’s official status page, the exchange began experiencing trading difficulties around 6pm UTC on October 23.

In less than an hour, Coinbase released an update stating that the issue had been rectified, and their team was monitoring trading activity for any lingering problems.
