Coinbase Prime legal entities

During the business application process you’ll choose a Coinbase entity with which you’ll contract. The entity that you’ll choose is determined by the product you’re applying to use (Coinbase Prime or Coinbase Prime: Custody only), your business entity’s country of incorporation, and by other business needs.

Each Coinbase entity has access to different cash payment methods, cryptocurrencies, and trading pairs. See our Help Center article to learn about supported cryptocurrencies and trading pairs by product and entity.

  • For Coinbase Prime, you’ll choose to contract with Coinbase, Inc. plus one of the following entities: Coinbase Custody Trust Company, LLC or Coinbase Custody International, Ltd. 

  • For Coinbase Prime: Custody only, you’ll choose to contract with Coinbase Custody Trust Company, LLC, Coinbase Custody International, Ltd., or Coinbase Germany GmBH.
