Staking prices and fees on Coinbase Prime

Staking pricing and fees vary by the individual asset protocols and by the validator type used to stake your assets. The information listed below is specific to Coinbase Prime supported assets that are staked to Coinbase Custody public validators, Coinbase Cloud public validators, or Coinbase Cloud private validators. Review the definitions and table below to learn more: 

  • Coinbase Custody public validator and Coinbase Cloud public validator: Validators charge a fee for their service. The fee is typically a percentage of total rewards earned and are automatically deducted before the rewards appear in your staking wallet. Fees vary by asset. Note: ETH fees aren’t deducted from your earned rewards before they appear in your staking wallet. Instead, Coinbase Prime issues a monthly invoice for 10% of earned rewards after rewards are paid.

  • Coinbase Cloud dedicated validator: You’ll be charged the following fees:

    • Subscription fee: The base monthly cost to run a participation cluster (private validator) on Coinbase Cloud.

    • Participatory fee: A variable percentage-based fee on the rewards earned by an active private validator
