Margin trading is now available on Coinbase Pro in 23 U.S states with 3x leverage

Coinbase has launched margin trading for users of its cryptocurrency trading platform, Coinbase Pro. Both individual and institutional investors in selected regions now have access to Coinbase margin trading. The company plans to expand access to more areas and provide more types of collateral.

Margin is one of the most requested features of the exchange. Trading margin (or leverage) can amplify the impact of your trades by allowing you to borrow more money.
If implemented as part of a responsible trading strategy, margin trading not only increases a trader’s position in a particular trade but can also help to diversify portfolios, allow hedging or arbitration on multiple positions without sending additional capital.
