How do I know how much I’ll earn in rewards?
The amount of rewards earned will vary based on the asset and will change over time. We’ll always display the current rate within each of the asset’s pages in your Coinbase account.
How are rewards calculated?
Rewards always reflects the cash value you received when the reward was added to your account.

Once I start earning rewards, can I opt out?
Yes. You can unstake your assets at any time by going to the asset’s page and selecting Earning balance. From here, you can manage your staked balance.
Note: Some assets will earn rewards while they are being unstaked, and some won’t. You’ll also need to wait until the on-chain, unstaking process is complete before you are able to sell or send your assets.
