Roles and permissions on Coinbase Prime

Roles come with specific permissions that give your teammates access to Coinbase Prime and dictates what they're allowed to do within the account and portfolio.  This creates a checks and balances system for your account. It’s important to understand roles and permissions prior to adding team members to your account.

When you onboard to Coinbase Prime, the account owner will add team members to your account and assign each user a role. After your contract is active, you can edit, remove, and add team members as needed. Each team member can only have one assigned role per portfolio.
