Today Coinbase announced that they are launching crypto-powered gift cards. According to the company:
Not only will customers using e-gift cards enjoy zero-fee withdrawals from their Coinbase account, the company also plans to offer special bonuses and rewards for users when they convert their crypto into real-life purchases with partner companies.
Currently the service is launching in UK, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands and Australia, with more countries planned soon.
To start buying gift cards if you're in one of the supported countries, visit wegift.io/coinbase.

Coinbase have announced that they will soon be adding support for ERC20 tokens in some of their products: https://blog.coinbase.com/adding-erc20-support-to-coinbase-fe9cba6782b
Coinbase has traditionally been slow to add new assets, limiting its choices so far to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. But by adding ERC20 support, Coinbase could potentially add a plethora of new tokens without needing to individually evaluate and integrate any technology changes beforehand.
So far the ERC20 support will only be available for Coinbase Custody. This means large scale investors rather than small-time traders using a regular Coinbase account. The company says "Custody will likely support more assets than those available to trade on GDAX or Coinbase for the foreseeable future." But there is a chance that these tokens will make their way to GDAX eventually.
Today Coinbase reported multiple issues with buying and selling BTC on their site, through the public status page and Twitter announcements.
BTC Buys and Sells Temporarily Unavailable Intermittent Availability for BTC Buys and Sells It appears the issues have been resolved now, but there still hasn't been any announcement on Twitter confirming this. So if you're experiencing errors buying Bitcoin on Coinbase, check the status page as it may be related to these intermittent outages today.
