Sunsetting of Coinbase Pro

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.

Hi @Urza,

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.

Hi,

Thank you for your questions.

Pro supports multiple portfolios each with different, or multiple, API keys each with different permissions… 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?

We will support multiple API keys with specific View/Trade/Transfer permissions, just like Pro.


Please see the following announcement to gain more clarity on the rest of your questions:

Amazing, thankyou, that clarifies a lot.

Seems you side-stepped the issue here. The plan appears to be NOT to have multiple profiles / portfolios atm. I can assure you that trying to maintain a balanced sell-side of a coin that I trade in 3 currencies is an absolute nightmare if in one portfolio. In separate portfolios, each has its own pot. Not to mention that FIX is the only way I know an order has been taken and to create an opposing order. I have spent a great deal of time and money in developing a FIX solution that works for me and that appears likely to disappear.

No time at all to transition, it is how Coinbase work. They don’t give a fig about people who have invested in software in the past.

And really no point in posting here I think. Firstly I only saw your post today (after 13 days) so heavily censored and secondly nobody is listening or replying.

Actually I see that transfers from coinbase to coinbase.pro is already halted. Even if the API works in the same way as it did before, it is not possible to deposit to coinbase pro from coinbase.com and that breaks our software.

In coinbase pro, I used to have different portfolios for different users. I could not find the same thing in advanced trading, is it available?

Hello @farslan. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we checked this with our team.

As we transition from Coinbase Pro to Advanced Trade, transfers from Coinbase.com to Pro are no longer available.

While you are unable to transfer funds from coinbase.com to Coinbase Pro, you can still deposit directly to your Coinbase Pro account. Rollout of the Advanced Trade API is expected later this fall, which will not require transfer of funds out of coinbase.com

Thank you!

Would you please explain the procedure for depositing into your Coinbase Pro account as I have been unable to perform this activity even with the help of your customer support staff.

Hello @Coinbase,

It looks like coinbase pro API is already deprecating (removing) features. We can no longer transfer funds from coinbase to coinbase pro. Until the new API is working please re-enable this feature. Also, we would like to request advanced trading api maintain the same capabilities and keep the PORTFOLIOS. This is a great feature and it looks like it might be removed.

We are using both coinbase API and coinbase pro together; we need a unique deposit address and portfolios. For security and fund management we want to separate funds and protect or assets from loss due to any single API key.

Hello @RCK. We understand that you are having issues with depositing funds into your Coinbase Pro account.

To deposit funds into your Coinbase Pro account, you may follow the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Coinbase Pro.
  2. Click the Trade tab.
  3. Under Wallet Balance, click Deposit.
  4. Search for, and select the asset you’d like to deposit. Click the deposit method you’d like to use.
  5. Review and select the appropriate destination address.

Also, there’s also a Deposit button under the Portfolios tab.

Additionally, to add a payment method, you may visit this help center site: https://help.coinbase.com/en/pro/getting-started/adding-a-payment-method/adding-a-payment-method

If the issue still persists after this, kindly reply to this thread with the following information:

  • steps on how you deposit funds into your Coinbase Pro account
  • a screenshot of the error message you are receiving

Thank you!
