First stake incentive

Eligible users (see eligibility below) can earn a crypto reward when they stake ETH for the first time. Learn more about staking and how it works.  

Users can earn $10 in Ethereum (ETH) when they stake $100 in ETH for the first time, up to $30 in rewards. 

Am I eligible? 

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be a legal resident of the 50 US states (excluding HI and NY)

  • Be a first-time staker

  • Stake at least $100 in ETH

Users who stake less than $100 in ETH will not receive this reward. Users who have staked ETH2 are not eligible.

Important: If you've previously staked assets, you are not eligible. 

What is the max reward amount that I can earn?

A payout will only be granted on your first staking transaction. You can receive a maximum payout of $30 by staking $300 of ETH. See the terms and conditions for more information.

When will I receive the 10% in ETH?

Once you’ve successfully staked at least $100 in ETH, you will receive 10% in ETH to your Coinbase account within 2 business days. 

Am I eligible to earn this reward  if I already have a Coinbase account?

Existing users can receive this offer if they haven’t staked any assets before. See the eligibility requirements above for more information. 

Am I eligible to earn this reward if I’m a new Coinbase user?

  1. Verify your identity.

  2. Add a payment method to your account.

You may lose all, or a portion of, your staked ETH, including any staking rewards. After staking, you’ll be unable to trade, send, or sell the ETH you’ve staked if and until the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade occurs.
