Now, lets speculate why this is happening? What are your opinions? (please comment your thoughts)

Is it:

USAA integrating bitcoin balance for their banking customers??
Blockchain tech featured in The Economist magazine (or blockchain technology in general)
The Winklevoss’s launch of trading platform Gemini.com
Worldpay quietly supporting Bitcoin and Blockchain
Something happening in CHINA?

Maybe just a mix of them all, or some secret undercover shit that is way over our heads? Other ideas?

Coinbase fees too high?

Bitstamp with 0.5% fee and then there’s Coinbase with 1% fee, I was wondering, why is this so high? and is this fair? I love bitcoin but really for an exchange to be taking 1% on all sells and all buys is just ridiculous imo. I love you Coinbase, love you bitcoin, but this really should be updated to a more fair amount.

The Winklevoss brothers are launching Gemini but it seems they have not yet released their fee amount. I emailed them already:

Hi, i’d like to know what kind of fees will Gemini have per transaction?
Coinbase has 1%, Bitstamp 0.5%
Where will you guys be at? I’m very interested, i’d love to see something lower than 1%, that is insane imo
Thank you

from TalkBitcoins.com

I am not the only one who thinks this way, here’s a thread on Reddit about it ->

I love you coinbase, and love your easy to use platform, but really, why the high fees?

UPDATE (Oct 18, 2015): Gemini replied that they have only 0.25% transaction fees! :)
