The Coinbase Pro is a centralised exchange platform that is owned and operated by one of the largest exchange platforms in the world, Coinbase. The Coinbase exchange platform which was introduced in the year 2012 decided to make available an exchange platform for experienced traders and in 2015, Coinbase Pro came into existence. At first, it was called the "Global Digital Asset Exchange" (GDAX) but had it's name changed in the year 2018. It is of no doubt that Coinbase Pro tends to be more advanced than Coinbase itself, that's the relevance of the "Pro" there. It tends to have some advantages like the trading fee. Coinbase Pro charges less than Coinbase and unlike Coinbase, their trading fee is not flat. Coinbase Pro charges takers 0.25% and makers 0.15% (the takers fee happens to be exactly the industry's average while the maker's tends to be below). The Coinbase Pro happens to be focused on experienced traders while Coinbase focuses keenly on newbies, Coinbase Pro allows users to trade coins based on the market order books while Coinbase serves as a third-party by allowing users to trade through its own platform.
The Coinbase Pro is an exchange platform that allows fiat to crypto tradings and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are accepted while Fiats like the United States Dollars, United Kingdom Euros and the British Pound are accepted. The company is housed in San Francisco (being it's headquarters). They charge a fee of 1.49% on transactions made with a bank and 3.99% for those made by debit or credit cards. The company at first never charged for withdrawals but had that changed on the 18th of September 2020 and now charges little for transactions as the money charged gives them no profit at all.
Talking about it's security, the Coinbase Pro stores almost 98% of users funds in a cold storage and also have it insured by FDIC insurance which reimburse the US government if the exchange is bankrupt.
The exchange platform can be recommended mainly to advanced traders and not learners because of the manner in which their User Interface has been designed. New traders can make use of the Coinbase exchange platform instead.
