How to register on Coinbase?

Currently, there are over 200 cryptocurrency exchanges present in the world. Some of these are international, some are limited to a particular country and some lack functionality. Therefore, to enter into the cryptocurrency market, one has to choose the right cryptocurrency exchange. 

Choosing one of the top international exchanges works for most people and hence here we are with a guide on registering on one of the top cryptocurrency exchanges: Coinbase. Coinbase is on #2 position on the leaderboard as per CoinMarketCap. 

Coinbase offers two kinds of cryptocurrency exchange platforms to users. In this article, we are going to see which type of Coinbase platform is suitable for you and how to register on it. But first, let us see why one should consider Coinbase over any other cryptocurrency exchange. 

A Brief Introduction To Coinbase

Coinbase is an international cryptocurrency exchange and it is currently supported in 100+ countries. Therefore no matter what country you live in, Coinbase has got you covered. The platform has a huge user base of +73 Million active users across countries. 

Coinbase is the first cryptocurrency exchange for many users. It has the simplest user interface with international support, thus many novice investors prefer Coinbase as their first exchange platform. 

Coinbase manages to keep these users engaged with the platform longer by providing an advanced version of the platform with more features that expert traders seek. Coinbase is also one of the most secure exchanges with the lowest breaches so far. 

Key Offerings From Coinbase

Coinbase offers great security in terms of the digital assets of the users. The vast majority of the funds of the users are stored offline and thus, far away from the hands of the hackers. Therefore, Coinbase is the most trusted exchange of all time. 

Even after such precautions, if the platform is subjected to any cyber attack or breach, your funds are secured and backed by FDIC insurance. This insurance covers your USD cash as well as all of your Cryptocurrency holdings. 

Lastly, Coinbase supports over 130 cryptocurrencies to trade which includes all popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), etc. 

Finally, Coinbase as we talked about has platforms to offer to both beginners and expert traders. Users can access both of these platforms using the same login credentials. These two platforms are called “Coinbase” and “Coinbase Pro”. Let’s see how these platforms differ from each other and which one you should go for. 

Coinbase vs Coinbase Pro

As you already know, Coinbase is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges out there and Coinbase Pro is just a sub-platform of Coinbase that offers a number of advanced features to expert traders that you otherwise won't get in the traditional version of the platform.

Coinbase Pro is just a sub-platform of Coinbase but they are very different from each other. A lot of pro-level active traders use Coinbase pro. One of the most prominent differences between these two platforms is their user interface.

As you know already, the user interface of Coinbase is so simple that even novices can learn their way around the platform in a very short time. But when it comes to Coinbase Pro, there are a lot of advanced features like advanced charts and trading options that are beneficial for active traders.

Some of the most basic and best differences that make Coinbase pro better than Coinbase is its low fees. Although Coinbase Pro provides some features that Coinbase doesn't, it is not suitable for everyone as it is too complicated for beginners. One thing that is common with both these platforms is that neither of them offer any control over private keys.
