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 coins’ storage.
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.
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.

To place a limit order:
Post Only will ensure that your limit order is posted to the order book and sits on the order book to be charged a Maker Fees if it is filled. If any part of the order would execute immediately due to its price when arriving at the matching engine, the entire order will be rejected. This is useful for ensuring that an order is not subject to Taker Fees, if desired.
Allow Taker will allow the order to be executed regardless of whether it crosses the spread to fill an existing order. If any part of the order crosses the spread, that portion will be assessed according to the taker fee rate.
