Hi taras - I wasn't aware of Bitcoin Cash till after I bought my initial BitCoin. Excuse my ignorance, but what does giving my transaction hash help with? Again, I'm new to this and trying to understand how some of this all works. I'd hate to post something here that would be access to my wallet. lol
Good to hear you're conscious of keeping your money safe. Ive seen one too many people with not a care in the world, ending up losing their money later down the line.
Regarding your problem with fees - Yes, transaction fees are taken out of each transaction when using Coinbase. Fees not more than a few years ago, transaction fees were less than a single cent. But now, due to Bitcoin's huge price jump and large transaction rate, the network has become more congested, hence driving up the cost to transact your Bitcoin. This is even worse when transacting a"small" amount of Bitcoin, around $10 or less at current rates.
I would encourage just sitting on your Bitcoin and not transacting it for the time being. The fees are to be honest - absurdly high. I only like to transact large amounts when using my BTC. The rest, I can just use fiat for purchases.
