Manage a project with a Free plan

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

Once you’ve spun up your Node project, you’ll be ready to access our APIs. You’ll need the following in order to use your project: 

You will find resources such as developer documents, tutorials, community forums, and links to other help articles on the details page once you are signed into the Coinbase Node platform. You do not need to be logged into your account to view the documentation and tutorials, but logging in will allow you to access a more curated selection of materials to guide you through the process of managing your project on the developer platform.

  • Node’s shared plans accommodate a total of 3 active projects. Regardless of whether the projects are part of the Free plan or the Scale plan, if you have 3 projects, you will not be able to create a new project. You will need to delete one or more projects before you can create a new one. You can also reach out to us to discuss your project needs.

  • Ethereum is currently the only supported protocol on Coinbase Node and we're working on adding support for more protocols. If you’re interested in other protocols, let us know by submitting your feedback on our Contact Us form.

API rate limits

We use request units to set rate limits. Each project has a single API access token and that token has an associated request unit rate limit that is based on the plan you are using. 

If you are a Free plan subscriber, your API access plan project will have the following rate limits:

  • 120,000 units per day

  • 20 units per second

Your dashboard shows the number of request units used, the requests sent, and the responses received for each request. You’ll receive a 429 error message when you hit your rate limit. Our developer documentation provides more information about rate limits.

If you’re looking to upgrade your project, check out our article about upgrading to the Scale plan. If your project will exceed Scale plan rate limits, reach out to us to discuss your project needs.

Delete your project

When you delete a project, the API credentials associated with that project will no longer work.

This action is permanent. A deleted project cannot be recovered.

  1. Sign in to your Coinbase Cloud account.

  2. Select Node on your homepage.

  3. Locate the project you would like to delete from the dashboard. Select it.

  4. Select Manage project.

  5. Select Delete.

  6. Confirm by selecting Delete from the pop-up window.

Your project will show on your dashboard as deleting on the protocol for the time it takes to remove, but you will not be able to select the project during that time.
