Coinbase is a digital currency broker exchange where you can buy and trade Bitcoin and a few other cryptos. It is different from traditional cryptocurrency exchanges because it allows you to buy crypto using fiat currencies.
Coinbase is considered one of the biggest crypto-broker exchanges in the world!
They hold over $20 billion in assets and over $50 billion in crypto has been traded using its platform since it was founded in San Francisco, California in 2012.
Coinbase actually has two core products; a broker exchange and a professional trading platform named GDAX. However, the two can be used independently from one another.
