The above video is a blatant ad for CoinBase at https://www.coinbase.com. I am simply a (very) satisfied CoinBase customer. It works. CoinBase is very easy to use, no harder than PayPal.
CoinBase does offer an option to share the service with friends. If you go to my”share with a friend” link at https://www.coinbase.com/join/Yankee101 and then create a free CoinBase account, once you buy $100 US of bitcoin or more, you will receive an additional $10 of free bitcoin. As the referrer who sent you to the site, I will also receive an additional $10 of free bitcoin.
Use of the “share with a friend” link at https://www.coinbase.com/join/Yankee101 is optional, in my opinion. Use it or not as you see fit. I am simply pointing out that it is an option that benefits both you and me but it is just that: an option. Your choice. You are under no obligation. If you prefer to not use that option, you can still access CoinBase without earning anything for anyone by going to https://www.coinbase.com.
