Does Coinbase pay miner fees?

Mar 21, 2017
Since our inception, Coinbase has been paying network fees on behalf of our customers to help support the growth of the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. Coinbase now has over 6 million users worldwide, and this has become a significant cost.

Fees are assigned dynamically based on the current network conditions and will be paid by customers when sending an on-chain transaction. These fees go to miners of Bitcoin and Ethereum* transactions, not to Coinbase. The fees associated with any on-chain sends will be displayed on the send confirmation screen.

Transactions between Coinbase accounts are free and off-chain.

* Coinbase currently pays ETH miner fees on behalf of our customers
