How does Coinbase work?

Do you want to get started with Coinbase? Make sure to make an account and stay tuned for our Okex manual.

Coinbase login

To login, you must first create a Coinbase account if you do not already have one. You can do this by registering on their homepage and continue to create an account. You can also make an account in the app if you prefer to use the app only, which is available for both Android and Iphone.

Coinbase fees

Compared to other top-tier exchanges, Coinbase has relatively high fees as they charge approximately 0.50% on every transaction. As per their terms and conditions, the exact transaction fee differs as the actual spread may be higher or lower due to market fluctuations in the price of cryptocurrency on Coinbase Pro between the time they quote a price and the time of order execution. Furthermore, they also charge a small set fee on top of the variable fee. Thus, in terms of trading fees, there are better options to buy your coins.

Coinbase exchange

Coinbase is for many novice cryptocurrency investors the most trusted and valued exchange. This is partly due to their long history but mainly because Coinbase has led the way for other cryptocurrency exchanges. It is a regulated financial institution in the United States and also complies with the main financial laws and regulations within the European Union. Furthermore, Coinbase is one of the few exchanges where your cryptocurrencies are insured when they are on the platform.
