What is GDAX?
Ever heard of Coinbase, well it’s like that, it is a sister company of it. GDAX stands for Global Digital Asset Exchange. It was launched in 2105 to make sure it has low fees and superfast transactions.
The fee structure
This being a very popular cryptocurrency it is also one of the cheapest. It is extremely cheap when it comes to trading. If you purchase with a credit card it will cost you 4%, and bank transactions will set you back by 1.5% each time. To understand the fees you have to take a look at some of them. If the pricing tier is up to $100k the taker fee will be 0.25% and the maker fee will be 0.15%. Or if it is $1b and more the taker fee is 0.05% and the taker fee is 0.00%. For those who don’t know what a maker or taker fee is well listen up. A maker fee or order is when you offer a transaction to another buyer, and if they accept they are the taker, so they also have to pay a fee.
