CNBC reported many customers remain as angry with Coinbase as they are with the attack, based on the level of support they have received. Coinbase’s customer service communications have been primarily via email. In response, many customers are reported by CNBC to have said they struggle to reach company representatives.
Looking into the incident for Digital Journal is Sam Bakken at OneSpan. According to Bakken the incident highlights why the cryptocurrency sector remains vulnerable, as well as a prime target given the relative value of tokenized money.
Bakken explains: “Incidents like this demonstrate that cryptocurrency exchanges need to take a serious look at how they are authenticating users on their platforms and following up on fraud claims. Table stakes would be responding to customer inquiries within a reasonable amount of time, better would be pro-actively notifying customers of fraud, best would be detecting, and stopping the fraud before it occurs.”
In terms of the salient lessons to be drawn from the latest incident, Bakken offers the following insight: “Players in the cryptocurrency space will need to look at the lessons learned by more traditional financial institutions (FIs) and banks when it comes to security – especially as crypto moves into the mainstream with more consumers investing via retail exchange platforms than ever before.”
He adds that vulnerability concerns spread even further: “SIM swap fraud has been used widely by bad actors to gain access to accounts. SMS alone as a form of authentication is innately less secure than other methods – and crypto firms will need to follow suit. Using SMS for multi-factor authentication often puts the onus of protecting customer data on mobile network operators, whose number porting processes are historically not designed to withstand such attacks.”
Despite obvious consumer hesitancy, cryptocurrency exchange sites will continue to be popular. Bakken is of the view that these platforms can, and should, do more to protect their users. He recommends: “Cryptocurrency platforms should be looking to adopt mobile push notifications and binding mobile devices and apps to accounts as an alternative, which have the added benefits of being protected by application shielding technology as well as the latest identity verification technologies such as machine learning and biometrics.”
Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Elon Musk: Here’s the Real Winner in the Race for Space. Trio net worth of GDP more than Ireland roughly $400 billion are fulfilling their dreams trips in space.
Here’s where each stands:
- Branson will take off in a matter of hours as I write this. He and his fellow travelers will ultimately ascend to about 55 miles above the surface of the Earth for their suborbital journey, possibly giving Branson bragging rights for being the first billionaire to reach space.
- I say “possibly,” because later this month, Bezos plans to fly aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard, along with his brother Mark Bezos, original Mercury 13 aviator Wally Funk, and the winner of a $28 million auction. If all goes according to plan, they’ll reach about 65 miles above the Earth — also a suborbital trip.
As Bezos’s Blue Origin has taken to repeating, however, the 10 miles or so might make a big difference, because New Shepard will pass the Karman line, 62 miles above the Earth, and Unity won’t.
This is where international aeronautic and astronautic federations in Europe recognize the official boundary between the Earth and space. Other arbiters, such as NASA and the U.S. Air Force, put the space boundary at just 50 miles; so it’s not a settled question

Maye Musk appeared at the end of her Tesla CEO son’s SNL monologue to ask what he got her for Mother’s Day.
“I’m excited for my Mother’s Day gift,” Maye Musk said. “I just hope it’s not dogecoin!”
Musk, who is a huge fan of DOGE, declared his endorsement for the altcoin on March 3 through a tweet. However, his initial tweet was not actually related to crypto but was instead a meme that he captioned “Dogs roc,” which was followed by another tweet stating “they have the best coin,” which was in reference to Dogecoin. Interestingly, this is not the first time Musk is expressing positive sentiment toward Dogecoin. In April last year, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO tweeted that DOGE was his favorite crypto, indicating at the time that it was pretty cool
