Coinbase to Discontinue Coinbase Pro, to Be Replaced by New Advanced Trading

Leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has announced its intention to suspend Coinbase Pro, an advanced, trader-focused service, by the end of the year.

Coinbase to Discontinue Coinbase Pro

On Wednesday, June 22, Coinbase announced plans to discontinue its Pro trading service before the fall of 2022. 

Coinbase Pro currently exists independently of Coinbase.com, offering lower fees and direct access to the Coinbase Exchange order book.

Upon discontinuation, Coinbase Pro will be replaced by Advanced Trade, a feature found within the main Coinbase app. In addition, all Coinbase Pro users will automatically be moved to Coinbase.com.

Advanced Trade to Replace Coinbase Pro

The new Advanced Trade option is now live for desktop Coinbase.com users. Coinbase also details plans to roll out a mobile version of the feature within the Coinbase app in the coming weeks. 

Desktop Coinbase users have already reported that the new option is now prompting them to migrate their funds from Pro to Advanced Trade. However, the option will exist within the main Coinbase app and site and not as a standalone feature. 

Subscribers of Coinbase Pro have taken to social media to express their displeasure at that discontinuation, with many citing the lower fees charged on Coinbase Pro.
