How do I start earning?
- If you are logged in and eligible, you will be able to start earning crypto immediately.
- If you are logged in but you do not see the option to earn, please follow the instructions on the banner to complete setting up your account. We will email you if you are eligible. Note that this might take some time due to popular demand.
- Note that Coinbase Earn is only available on the web and the Android mobile app currently
- View earnings by going to the asset-specific wallet on Coinbase.com:

Why does the value of my earnings go up and down?
The amount of cryptocurrency you earn for completing a task is based on the USD spot price of the cryptocurrency at the time of earning. While the total number of tokens you've earned stays the same, the dollar value may fluctuate as the price of the cryptocurrency changes.
