I'm impressed with Coinbase's speed of execution l lately, moving up and across market to capture more of the crypto audience.
@rrhoover What's the difference between this and GDAX? From the website it seems GDAX is targeted for individuals, Coinbase Prime is retargeted for investment groups?
@rrhoover @robofnc Yep! Feels like it. Not everybody can get access to Prime afaik.

@robofnc seems like this is definitely geared toward institutions. Super smart positioning as Robinhood seeks to be the cross asset class investment dashboard for younger investors and focus on the individual. CB going enterprise and upmarket feels like a way to have even more visibility into market forces AND make a ton of coin (pun fully intended).
@faridchaouki probably, but GDAX isn’t stable enough to rely on for big institutions. DefInItely curious about what other features this offers.
This move doesn't surprise, but doesn't fail to impress. Coinbase never stops.
As larger firms move into crypto trading (which their current trading platforms don't support) and crypto hedgefunds pop up, both will need a turnkey trading platform for their in-house teams.
The on boarding help will certainly help push this forward. I’m not sure if anyone else in the space is offering that. Nice job Coinbase.
How is this different from GDAX?
@shinji_pons the logo is different...
@shinji_pons Support that doesn't take two months to reply.
@tonycarreon LOL 😂
Oo, very good I am fascinated.
I'd say this is GDAX's power layered with new custodial products for the larger institutional players that want to enter the market.
Really promising product, Coinbase is moving in the right direction.
Prime - GDAX for Institutional Traders
Pro - GDAX for Individual Traders
Good move by @Coinbase by focusing on depth rather than breadth!
