Why Cant I Earn Crypto On Coinbase?

Coinbase is not an exchange for you to trade against. It’s just a way to buy and sell bitcoin. If you deposit fiat currency, Coinbase takes the money first and gives you the cryptocurrency like any other shop.

Now, if you lose your password or your site gets hacked or something (which has happened with exchanges) then no more cryptocurrency will be available on Coinbase. But, if it’s done right, there should never be too much at stake here either… I don’t think anyone could tell that someone was hodling onto all their funds by accident (well maybe “someone”…) because there doesn’t seem to be that many ways for this stuff to go wrong….and even if it did, if you’re buying enough BTCs-equivalents of USDs(about $1k-$10k), they’ll quickly get back into the positive from being traded on other exchanges as well as being sold off in kind at a discount through market price drops……. said one thing about coinbase turns out that isn’t quite true as i thought or as others may have explained it…..i understand that coinbases “versus” analogy is very valid but my question wasnt about comparing coins/bets, its actually set up kind of like a bank….like a stock exchange so surely they cant help me earning crypto on coinbase?Coinbase is not an exchange for you to trade against.
