I’m extremely disappointed to hear that Pro services will begin sunsetting when there apparently isnt even an API for the new “advanced trade” mode thats replacing it.
In the first place depending on how different the API is there can be considerable cost for us users to transition to a new API, but additionally, the communication about this has not been good.
Hello @Urza ! Thank you for taking an interest in trying out Coinbase APIs. For the details regarding your concern, we will check on this for you with our team. We will get back to you once we have more information. Keep in touch!
Thank you for raising this concern. Please be assured that we are hard at work on building the API for Advanced Trade. Until then, existing customers will still have access to Coinbase Pro and we do not yet have an exact date for sunsetting Pro or the Pro API.
Unfortunately we cannot provide an ETA for the launch date of the Advanced Trade API at this time, but we will post an announcement on this forum when we have more details on the launch date.
For more details on why we are sunsetting Pro in favour of Advanced Trade, please see this blog post: https://blog.coinbase.com/hello-advanced-trade-goodbye-coinbase-pro-5b0715b03ef0
Will fills records for coinbase pro portfolios remain available (so things like people’s cointrackers work, at the very least)?
Will historical candles go back to when the coin was listed on coinbase, or will they start over from the creation of the advanced trade mode or its api?
Will data for those enpoints continue to be formatted the same way?
Side question, as Pro was not compatible with the ‘Coinbase One’ beta, will Advanced continue to not be compatible with the ‘One’ beta (ie subject to the 0 fees)?
Pro supports multiple portfolios each with different, or multiple, API keys each with different permissions. This allows users to, for instance, provide API keys with -view- permissions only to tax processors like cointracker or even just turbotax, while being able to use keys with more powerful permissions on the same portfolios themselves for their own purposes.
Will this level of granularity of access continue to be supported in the Advanced API, will Advanced support multiple porfolios, multiple keys, how will this work?
Thankyou in advance if you are able to provide information on this at this time, and I understand if some of this hasnt been worked out yet.
However, if just the few concerns I’m able to come up with off the top of my had -havent- been worked out yet, I suggest that the messaging on the timing of this forced transition is way too hasty. I had already seen the blog post you linked and its why I’m here. It specifically says “we will sunset Coinbase Pro later this year.” There’s only 5 months left in the year, I dont know if thats enough time for this sort of transition to be worked out in detail if it isnt already, while giving us users enough time to refactor whatever we have to as well.
