Let’s get started!
1. Overview Of The Coinbase NFT
Coinbase NFT is an NFT marketplace owned by the Coinbase exchange.
It went live in the beta version on April 20, 2022.
Surprisingly, it is not a replica of the already existing NFT marketplaces that NFT traders are used to.
Instead, it is designed as a Web3 NFT marketplace built with a socially engaging UI.
Users can build a fan-based community, connect with other NFT collectors, and leave a “like” or “comment” about an NFT.
Think of it as an NFT marketplace that is much like your Instagram account. Pretty cool, right?
Currently, it supports the listing and trading of Ethereum-based NFTs alone.
Also, only verified users are allowed to use Coinbase NFT.

2. Exploring Coinbase NFT
The following are the features of Coinbase NFT:
On the “Discover” page, you get a personalized feed of featured NFT collections, trending collections to check out, and accounts to follow.
It is so wonderfully laid out that it gives you that experience you get from social media platforms like Tiktok and Instagram.
You can scroll down to view more NFT collections, and leave a like, comment, upvote, or downvote comment.
This page displays all the NFTs that are on sale.
You can filter the options based on the collection, price range, and time frame you are looking for.
3. Trending Collections
You can see the most traded NFT collections by going over to this page.
All the NFT collections are listed here, but each one is rated by its 7-day trading volume.
Every Coinbase NFT user has a profile that they can customize according to their preferences.
On your profile page, you will see all of your personally owned NFTs.
There is an option to upload a profile picture, link your Twitter account, list your NFT, hide your NFT, etc.
Also, a user name is assigned to each profile. Other users can browse through your profile and follow you by searching for your username.
These are all the features of Coinbase NFT for now.
According to the team, more features, such as minting, the option of buying NFTs with a Coinbase account or a credit card, etc, are on the way.
3. How To Get Started On Coinbase NFT
Two prerequisites must be met before you can use Coinbase NFT. See below!
1. Join the waitlist
At the time of writing, April 2022, Coinbase NFT is only available to a small number of verified users.
Coinbase had earlier created a waitlist before the launch of the beta version.
The team stated that those who signed up for the waitlist would have first access to its NFT marketplace.
Currently, the waitlist is no longer available.
However, if you were on the waitlist and received an email with a code from “@Coinbase.com,” congratulations.
You are among the few that can access Coinbase NFT right now.
2. A Web3 wallet
If you checked these two prerequisites, go ahead and create your Coinbase NFT account by following the steps below:
Steps To Create A Coinbase NFT Account
- Visit nft.coinbase.com and click on “Sign in”. Enter your code and click on “Create account”.
Once your code is accepted, click on “Continue” and connect your wallet.

Congrats! You can now access the Coinbase NFT.
At this point, the NFT in your wallet will be displayed in your profile.
You can select the ones you want to be on display and hide the others.

5. Coinbase NFT Marketplace Vs OpeanSea
OpenSea is the world’s first NFT marketplace.
It is also recognized as the world’s largest NFT marketplace because of the high volume of daily transactions that are traded on its platform.
Many NFT fans and collectors consider Coinbase NFT to be a rival to OpeanSea.
But is this true? Let’s do the comparison in the table below:
|Founder||Devin Finzer||Brian Armstrong|
|User Interface||Simple UI||Sleek UI|
Social media styled
Klatyn and Solana
|Number of Users||1 million||Over 4 million|
users joined the
However, the total
number of active
users are unknown
|Buy/sell NFT||Auction and fixed price||Fixed price only|
Both OpenSea and Coinbase NFT are great NFT marketplaces.
On the other hand, Coinbase NFT is restricted to a small number of users, whereas OpeanSea can be used by anyone.
Also, each has its own peculiar feature.
However, OpeanSea is more sophisticated and the NFTs listed there are not limited to art and jpegs but also music, domain names, virtual worlds, etc.
In my opinion, I consider them to be complementary rather than competitive.
At the time of writing (April 2022), ordinary users are not permitted to mint or create NFTs on Coinbase.
They can only sell NFTs that have already been deployed on the Ethereum blockchain.
This feature is currently unavailable on Coinbase.
You can only sell an NFT for a fixed price.
At the moment, Coinbase NFT does not charge a fee.
However, you have to pay the network fee to approve your transaction. This fee goes to the miners.
If you didn’t get on the waitlist, visit this page and sign up for updates about Coinbase NFT.
However, if you joined the waitlist but didn’t receive the access code, Coinbase has saved your position in line and may invite you soon.
