Still no testnet?

Where is the test net?

When my company deals with normal exchanges they will give us months to test a small change to their (usually FIX) API on their testnet before it is rolled out to the production servers. But Coinbase decided to sunset the old one and release a new one without a testnet. What is going on?

No serious trader in the world creates trading strategies and systems without first robust testing on a testnet. There’s only so much we can do with our own unit tests and testnets when there is no way to test official requests.

I logged a complaint with the SEC months back because it’s highly professional to rollout a new API without a testnet, it’s a clear sign of broken corporate controls and decision-making procedures. What has happened and why isn’t it done yet?

The insanity that is Coinbase never ceases to amaze me with their ability to lower the services they provide from deployment to deployment. I have a ticket open with support that I put in 3 years ago. no response. Now they want a monthly fee to have priority support. Does that cut response time in half to 1.5 years? Sadly they are the only game in town, so they can bend each of us over and do what they please.
