The exchange first launched in Bermuda in May 2023 and was available to non-US customers. Moreover, it debuted with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) perpetual futures. Specifically, these are derivatives contracts that give traders the ability to speculate on price action with no implanted expiry date or delivery of that asset.

However, since it opened Coinbase International has expanded its offerings to its ever-growing user base. Specifically, it supports cryptocurrencies like Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), Ripple (XRP), Polygon (MATIC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and more.
