Create an SSH public-private key pair for Coinbase Data Marketplace

After you've purchased a Coinbase Data Marketplace product, you need to generate an SSH public-private key pair.

To generate the key pair from your Linux or macOS:

$ ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -P "" -C "Data-Marketplace-Key" -f coinbase-marketplace-key

This creates two files:

coinbase-marketplace-key (private key file)
coinbase-marketplace-key.pub (public key file)

Only share your public key with Coinbase sales team. Additionally, only ed25519 type keys are accepted. For example, public keys starting with ssh-ed25519.

$ cat coinbase-marketplace-key.pub
ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAINxagu…

Next steps:

After you’ve created your SSH key-pair, you'll share the public key with the Coinbase Sales team so they can activate your SFTP account. This'll allow you to connect to the Coinbase Data Marketplace SFTP service to download the purchased datasets. Learn more here.
