Coinbase reported on the final testing of Segwit implementation for Bitcoin.

Many of our customers have been asking for SegWit, and we’re working out a way to implement this upgrade safely. We store billions of dollars worth of bitcoin on behalf of customers and any change to our infrastructure is done with significant planning and consideration for the security and stability of our platform.

Earlier, bitcoin enthusiasts came crashing at Coinbase that it doesn't support SegWit to solve the problem of expensive and slow transactions in the bitcoin network. Some bitcoins-enthusiasts have blamed Coinbase in Bitcoin's full mempool.

After numerous complaints from users of Reddit, the popular platform for buying Crypto-currency Coinbase confirmed the presence of a bug in the system, because of which the payment for the same purchases was written off several times, in some cases up to 17 times.

We can confirm that the unexpected charges are originating from our payment processing network, and are related to charges from previous purchases. To the best of our knowledge, these unexpected charges are not permanent and are in the process of being refunded. We are running joint investigations with all parties involved, and will provide updates as we receive them.
We are actively investigating some reports from our customers about unexpected credit or debit card charges appearing on their statements from previous Coinbase purchases.
