Launch a project with a Scale plan

Ethereum is currently the only supported protocol on Coinbase Node's shared plans. Support for more protocols is in development and will be shared upon release. If you're interested in other protocols, let us know by submitting feedback on our Contact Us form.

A Coinbase Node project is a resource that a developer or their organization uses within Node to interact with the blockchain.

Coinbase Node gives you access to native APIs, our advanced API, and our NFT API to help you access data from the blockchain that you can store in your apps and services.

Advanced API

Advanced API simplifies your code and workflow, helping you gather data faster than when using native protocol APIs alone.

Coinbase Node’s Advanced API includes data for: 

  • Token balances

  • Token transfers, including internal transfers

  • Smart contract events

Each query can provide you with one of these types of data.


Coinbase Node’s NFT API provides you with access to NFT data with a developer-friendly API. Our NFT API helps developers query metadata, build buy/sell NFT marketplaces, and/or add NFT functionality to their applications.

Coinbase Node’s NFT API includes data for: 

  • Token metadata, transaction history, and ownership

  • All tokens within a collection

  • Collection metadata, which collections are trending, and lists of all collections

Launch a project

Here’s how to get started with a Scale plan from Coinbase Node: 

  1. Sign in to Coinbase via the Cloud console. 

    • If you’re having trouble accessing an existing Coinbase account, here are some suggestions for troubleshooting. If you have not yet created an account, select Create account after navigating to the Cloud console. You'll need to provide your name, an email address, and a unique password.

    • After troubleshooting your account or creating a new account, sign in using the console.

  2. Select Scale.

  3. Name your project.

  4. Select a network. Select Go to project.

  5. Add your credit card information or select an existing payment method. Debit cards are not accepted at this time. More information on billing can be found in our Scale billing article.

  6. Select Confirm new plan.

  7. Get your API access token.

  8. Start sending requests. You can find a list of available advanced API endpoints and of available NFT API endpoints in our developer documentation. The developer documentation also provides information on native APIs.

  9. Store your access token username and password.

    • Coinbase will not store your password for security reasons. If you lose your access token and password, you will have to delete your project and create a new one.

    • If you are working with others, you will need to share this information with them. You’ll only have one API access token per project.

  10. You can send a test request to confirm that your project is working correctly.
