Yesterday GDAX announced in their official blog the launch of their new platform for individual investors – Coinbase Pro.
This new product is aimed at individual professional traders, as opposed to the initial “pro platform” GDAX, which is devised mainly as a tool for institutions who want to enter crypto space. GDAX allowed the company to gather consumer info and develop a completely new platform dedicated and specifically tailored to the needs of individual crypto market players. Any existing GDAX customer can visit the page of the new platform and try it out on their own since yesterday.
The platform was completely redesigned form the ground up to make trading experience more seamless and intuitive. All transactions and balances from GDAX automatically are transferred to Coinbase Pro, and deposit and withdrawal processes are simplified for the customers' convenience. New features also include improved charts to give easy access to historical data, new consolidated portfolio view called “My Wallets” to allow customers to easily view their account balances and orders.
Like GDAX, Coinbase Pro users still have full and direct market access to the Coinbase Markets – a single pool of liquidity or all Coinbase products. Upon login customers will see all of their existing GDAX balances and trade history and will still enjoy the same level of service, the same trading fees and still have access to thee same APIs and security features, that the current platform provides.
Both old and new platforms will operate side by side until June 29, 2018. After that date, all customers will be transferred to the Coinbase Pro.
