You can find more information about withdrawals from Coinbase in the frequently asked questions section below.
Coinbase is an American cryptocurrency exchange platform without physical headquarters founded in 2012 that allows its users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. Coinbase also offers custodial wallet services to its retail clients and corporate cryptocurrency merchant services to its business and institutional clients. The CEO of Coinbase is Brian Armstrong, and the company is publicly listed on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol COIN.
The key difference between Zengo and Coinbase is that Zengo is a non-custodial crypto wallet that allows you to fully be in control of your digital assets as you hold the so-called ‘private keys’ to your funds. Coinbase, on the other hand, Coinbase is a cryptocurrency exchange that offers custodial wallet services, which means your digital assets will be lost if the exchange goes into bankruptcy.
Coinbase charges a flat 1% withdrawal fee whenever you want to withdraw your crypto in cash on top of the standard miner fees. Whilst ACH transfers are processed free of charge, the cryptocurrency exchange does charge $25 for wire transfers, $0,15 for SEPA transactions, and £1 for Swift transactions conducted in GBP. Cryptocurrency withdrawals are charged between 0,50% to 2,00% of the total amount withdrawn, depending on the digital asset in question.
Your personal Coinbase withdrawal limits are displayed under the ‘Account Limits’ section of your ‘Settings’ page. The withdrawal limits per cryptocurrency vary per region and chosen payment method.
All buys and sells occur instantly on Coinbase. However, cashing out crypto to fiat on Coinbase via a regular SEPA bank transfer takes about 1 to 2 business days to process. Cryptocurrency withdrawals to external wallets usually are processed within a maximum of 3 hours.
There are some problems that can occur when withdrawing money from Coinbase. One of the most common errors made by users is entering a wrong withdrawal address, causing the digital assets to be sent to a non-existent wallet and thereby causing them to be ‘burned.’ As cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible, these funds cannot be recovered.
As for withdrawal requests per bank wire transfer, it can be the case that your bank doesn’t accept Coinbase withdrawals or that your Coinbase account must be fully verified first.
To withdraw crypto to fiat on Coinbase, simply login to your Coinbase account, click or tap on ‘’Assets’’ followed by ‘’Cash Out’’. Specify the amount you want to withdraw and then click ‘’Continue.’’ Select your desired cash-out destination and click ‘’Continue’’ again and then on ‘’Cash Out Now’’ to finalize the withdrawal process.
If you have 2FA enabled for your Coinbase account, you will have to enter the 6-digit code provided to you in order to confirm the crypto-to-fiat withdrawal.
Alternatively, you can just withdraw your digital assets to your Zengo wallet before cashing them out to fiat straight away.
