Let me pull out my crystal ball and .... okay I'm rubbing it ... trying to think of mystic words .... oh, right, there's a big crack in it - I don't think I can get it to work. :)
Right now the covids are about a quarter of what they were a month or two ago. So, a strong downward trend. And that strong downward trend will probably continue and the borders will open in the next few weeks.
So my thinking is that in about two weeks the PDC will be sold out. And two weeks after that the border will open and then answering questions about what my official policy is about border comedy becomes a lot easier. Therefore I choose PUNT! I will answer these questions in one month! :)

I know some people have told me stuff about how the best thing to do is maintain your own wallet. I haven't tried that yet.
I have had some bitcoin for a long time, I have both a Coinbase account & a private wallet. A private wallet takes a little expertise, but it's certainly within your skillset. The trick is that you need to keep your wallet on a secured device, or at least as well secured as is possible. The phone app that I use is called Mycelium, and they do a good job regarding security; private keys remain only on the phone, encrypted, passcode locked, 12 word backup format etc. That said, don't keep more bitcoin on your phone than you'd feel comfortable walking around with real cash. Large balances need to be transferred to a more secure format, such as a "cold" wallet were the 12 words are kept in a secure place and are not actually loaded onto an internet connected machine until necessary.
Coinbase came to BBB's attention in September 2013. A review of the company’s complaints was completed in March 2021.Based on BBB files this company has a pattern of complaints from consumers who state they are locked out of their accounts, even after providing required information or updates. Consumer’s also state they have difficulty reaching the company.
A letter was sent to the company requesting they address the above issues as well as advise if the changes noted on their website had been implemented and what if any improvements the company is seeing from these changes.
To date, BBB has not received a response.

I received some bitcoin a few days ago and ... as a bit of silly i picked up a million "shib". So now I own a million of something. Granted, each shib is worth something like a thousandth of a penny. But in the previous few weeks it had tripled in value, so what the hell.
In just a few days, it has gained 50% value. It is now the seventh biggest crypto thing currently worth 24 billion us dollars.
I am no expert at any of this, but i do have to say that it is nice to have accidentally stumbled onto a good thing. And, in the word of shib, i am a millionaire. :)
