Coinbase’s professional trading platform, Coinbase Pro, recently announced an update to its fee structure.
According to the announcement, low-volume traders will see a hike in fees while high-volume traders, anyone who transacts more than $50,000 a month, will see a reduction starting on October 7.
In the previous fee structure, all accounts trading under $100K were charged 0.15% maker and 0.25% taker fees. Thus, the new fee structure represents an increase of 40-233% for traders under 50K, depending on where they fall on the new tiers.
The move is definitely an interesting one by Coinbase, especially as traditional equity brokerages move towards zero-fee structures.
