Coinbase Delay SEPA withdrawal delay

So it would seem that not just the BTC Blockchain is slow at the moment. Coinbase sent me this email today on the day I was due my SEPA Euro payment

Hi Daniel,
We are reaching out regarding a SEPA withdrawal that you have recently requested. Due to the extremely high volume of transactions received in the last few days, SEPA withdrawals are subject to delays.

Your withdrawal with code ABCDEF1234 started on 2017-12-18T00:00:00 for an amount of €,. EUR is delayed while we work through our backlog.

Please note that your funds are safe but it may take up to 10 days for them to reach your bank account.

We appreciate your patience and understanding on this issue, and apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. Our team is working to prevent delays like this from happening again in the future.

Thank you,
Team Coinbase


Hopefully this wont be an issue, just a delay and as the email suggests I shouldn’t worry as “funds are safe”.  I will feel a lot safer once they are in my account
