Coinbase announced in a blog post on Tuesday they will be suspending all margin trading on Coinbase Pro by the end of the week to comply with new guidance from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "We believe clear, common sense regulations for margin lending products are needed to protect and provide peace of mind to U.S customers," it said, "We look forward to working closely with regulators to achieve this goal." On Tuesday, crypto giant Binance said they will suspend all U.S. users within 14 days, according to emails sent to users alerting them to transfer their crypto funds. The negative PR news for Coinbase continued on Friday with a New York Times article, Tokenized: Inside Black Workers' Struggles at the King of Crypto Startup, highlighting the struggles by a handful of black workers at the cryptocurrency exchange from 2018 to 2019. Before leaving, at least 11 Coinbase employees informed the human resources department or their managers about what they said was racist or discriminatory treatment. The journalist on the story was credible crypto writer Nathaniel Popper, author of Digital Gold. The story warranted a preemptive response by Coinbase, An upcoming story about Coinbase, claiming the NYT story will "paint an inaccurate picture that lacks complete information and context," and said it is "committed to maintaining an environment that is safe, supportive and welcoming to employees of all backgrounds." At least 60 people took the opportunity to leave the company in September, including several executives, after Coinbase offered severance packages to staff unhappy with their new apolitical stance.
