Prime

Introduction to staking on Coinbase Prime

You can stake various eligible assets on Coinbase Prime. An asset is considered eligible if it’s available to custody and stake on Coinbase Prime. This includes: Solana (SOL), Tezos (XTZ), Polkadot (DOT), Cosmos (ATOM), Celo (CGLD) and Ethereum (ETH). Additional assets can be staked outside of Coinbase Prime using Coinbase Cloud services

You can choose to stake assets to a Coinbase Custody public validator, a Coinbase Cloud public validator, or to a Coinbase Cloud dedicated validator.  All three validator types are managed by Coinbase Cloud services. Note: Coinbase Prime requires you to delegate to specific validators for some assets. Learn more about the differences between private vs. public validators. Contact your Account Manager if you’re interested in setting up a private validator.
