We’re happy to announce the launch of Coinbase's U.S.-based bitcoin exchange, Coinbase Exchange. With this launch our goal is to bring increased stability to the bitcoin ecosystem.
Coinbase Exchange provides a reliable and secure platform for bitcoin trading that is backed by investors such as the New York Stock Exchange. If you are a Coinbase user in one of the 24 supported U.S. states or territories you can begin trading immediately on Coinbase Exchange. There will be no trading fees through March 30th, after which we will move to a maker-taker model. If you don’t already have a Coinbase account, you can sign up for one here.
We believe Coinbase Exchange will bring stability and trust to the exchange space and are excited that large institutions like the Trading Division of SecondMarket are already trading on the platform. To get started, check out exchange.coinbase.com.
