I am a newbie, pretty good on the computer. I received a email from coinbase that they have my deposit. Where does it go. Is there a easy step by step to find my funds, I want to buy something today.
Your deposit to coinbase will be credited to your "USD wallet" on your coinbase account when it clears. The USD wallet is where your USD is stored until you spend it, but you cant spend it until the bank transaction has cleared and coinbase knows that it's irreversable. This usually takes 1-2 weeks.
After the bank has cleared the transaction, coinbase will credit your USD wallet and you will be able to buy cryptos.
