Add new funds to a staked wallet on Coinbase Prime

You can add new principal funds to an existing staked wallet for some eligible assets on Coinbase Prime. The way in which you can stake your new principal funds to an existing staked wallet varies by asset. Review the definitions and table below to determine if you can add new principal funds to a staked wallet and how to stake those funds.

  • Net new principal: the ability to add net new principal funds to a staked wallet

    • Yes: You can add new principal funds to a staked wallet

    • No: You can’t add new principal funds to a staked wallet

  • Staking action: how your net new principal funds can be staked

    • Automatic: Net new principal funds added to a staked wallet are automatically staked

    • Manual: Net new principal funds added to a staked wallet must be manually restaked

    • Move or unstake: Net new principal funds added to a staked wallet can’t be staked unless you unstake the staked balance and then restake the new balance. You won’t generate rewards when you unstake assets due to the unbonding period. You can create a new wallet to stake new funds instead of adding them to an existing staked wallet to continue generating rewards.
