Coinbase vs Coinbase Pro: What’s the Difference?

In my Coinbase review, I mentioned that Coinbase Pro is a much cheaper alternative to the regular Coinbase platform if you are buying very large amounts of cryptocurrency.

In this article, I’ll explain the key differences between the two in depth so you can make the best decision.

Personally, I use Coinbase instead of Coinbase Pro because I use automated recurring purchases as my primary Bitcoin accumulation strategy. Coinbase Pro doesn’t offer this feature and it’s more geared towards Bitcoin traders instead of long term HODLers.
