Considering Coinbase just added an obscure ERC20 token 0x it got me thinking why isn't Steem integrated into Coinbase? The amount of people using Steem is probably greater than most of the other tokens listed on Coinbase currently. Most people probably cash out via blocktrades and or Bittrex and then transfer to Coinbase anyway. If Coinbase simply directly accepted Steem they would save everyone time and transaction fees so win/win.
Maybe it's time to push to get Steem on Coinbase? And of course continue discussions on how to improve Steem as a product. In my opinion economic changes need to be made.
