Coinbase published this blog post yesterday. It has this summary at the top:
Tl;dr: The New York Times is planning to publish a negative story about Coinbase at some point in the next few days online, and it will appear in print on Sunday. Given that this story may be read by your friends, family and professional contacts, we wanted to give everyone a heads-up and provide some important context.
That doesn’t sound suspicious at all considering the drama they’ve been involved in recently. 🙄
