Sell crypto and cash out your balance

Before you can cash out your cryptocurrency, you need to sell it to your Coinbase cash balance. You can then either transfer ("cash out") the funds to your bank, or leave them in your cash balance for future crypto purchases. There's no limit on the amount of crypto you can sell for cash.
