Today Coinbase is set to launch an app you can now download on iOS and the Android version is coming soon.
The App is aimed at the more professional clients, Coinbase set up a separate “pro” platform so that the main Coinbase.com exchange remains as simple and straightforward as possible for normal users.
There are some differences from the normal Coinbase app like real-time candles, the order book, your active orders as well as trade history for this specific pair. You can also set up an order to buy and sell cryptocurrencies from each trading pair page.
Also, you can deposit or withdraw cryptocurrencies directly from the mobile app. But, if you want to deposit or withdraw fiat currencies (USD, EUR, GBP, etc.), the app directs you over to the full website. Lastly, you can see your past and active orders, check your fees and limits.
If you are the average user it can be more expensive to trade on Coinbase Pro especially if your volume is less than the equivalent of US 50,000 over 30 days. Also, if you trade less than USD 10,000 over 30 days, it now costs 0.50% in maker and taker fees.
