How Much Does Coinbase Charge Per Trade?

Coinbase is a digital asset exchange company headquartered in San Francisco, California. They broker exchanges of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other digital assets with fiat currencies in 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide.

Coinbase has been described as the most popular bitcoin company. In 2013, Coinbase launched a US$75 million Series C funding round, led by Andreessen Horowitz. In January 2015, they announced they had raised an additional US$106 million in a Series D funding round, which brought the total amount raised to US$186 million.

In 2016 Coinbase was one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges available and allowed trading of Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. However, in 2017 Coinbase stopped allowing trading of Litecoin due to low liquidity.

Coinbase allows users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies through their platform. They charge a 1% fee for each transaction that a user makes. For example, if you were to buy $100 worth of Bitcoin, Coinbase would charge you a $1 fee.

NOTE: WARNING: Coinbase charges a fee for each trade, which is based on the amount of the trade and may vary depending on your location. Please be aware of this when considering how much to invest in Coinbase and other trading platforms. You should also consider other fees such as currency conversion fees, and any taxes associated with your trade.

If you were to then sell that same $100 worth of Bitcoin, Coinbase would charge you another $1 fee. So in total, you would have paid $2 in fees to Coinbase.

Coinbase also has a feature called GDAX (formerly known as Coinbase Exchange) which allows users to trade cryptocurrencies on their platform. GDAX charges different fees than Coinbase does. For example, when buying or selling cryptocurrencies on GDAX, you are charged a 0.25% taker fee or a 0% maker fee.

The taker fee is charged when you place an order that is immediately matched with an existing order. The maker fee is charged when you place an order that is not immediately matched with an existing order but is instead added to the order book.

So how much does Coinbase charge per trade? It really depends on what type of trade it is. If it’s a buy or sell on the Coinbase platform, then the fee is 1%.

If it’s a trade on GDAX, then the fee depends on if you’re the taker or maker.
