Coinbase Exchange API - Shutting Down

Over the past year I have been developing software which utilizes the Coinbase Exchange API.
Coinbase recently announced the pending removal of USDT trading from the exchange. As a Canadian citizen, I see no other way I can trade any of the Cryptocurrency’s on this exchange?

This renders the software useless in Canada and impossible for me to continue developing. 1000s of development and debugging hours wasted.

Hey @Dev2, thanks so much for providing this feedback! I wanted to share with you that as a Canadian user, you can still leverage our platform without the presence of USDT. Within Exchange, you can opt into a feature called “USD and USDC Unification” via the profile settlement page. If you were to opt into USDC settlement, you can trade using your USDC on all USD denominated books, and we will automatically settle your trades back to USDC! I hope you find this helpful!
