Coinbase Pro is the project of the Coinbase exchange which was designed for individual traders. If you asked to describe this platform in one word – we would say that it is solid. One of the few exchanges which is insured and backed by some of the biggest investors in the industry – like the New York Stock Exchange, Andreessen Horowitz, and Union Square Ventures, so it can be considered as the safest exchange for coinsstorage

Easy fiat depositing and a number of options for buying crypto assets with Bank Transfer or Credit or Debit card (MasterCard/Visa). Margin trading is also available there, but maximum leverage is x3. The only disadvantage of Coinbase Pro is a relatively small coin variety in comparison with Binance.

Trading Pairs & Fees

Coinbase Pro can’t show off the same wide range of available trading pairs as Binance, but still has all of the major coins besides Bitcoin and Ethereum: Ripple, EOS, Cardano, Link, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and some more. However, there are some specific rules because of which some trading pairs are not available in a number of countries. Talking about fees, Coinbase Pro uses a maker-taker fee model. “Maker” is used when a trader makes an order, and “taker” when it is executing.
