Coinbase reported on the final testing of Segwit implementation for Bitcoin.
Our engineering team has begun the final testing phase of SegWit for Bitcoin on Coinbase.
SegWit compatible Bitcoin sends/receives will be available for customers in the next few weeks.

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.
Vice President and GM, Coinbase
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.
