Coinbase users that reside in certain states are eligible to take out a loan or a line of credit. Credit checks aren't a factor in determining eligibility for the loan.
You can borrow up to 40% of your Bitcoin balance on Coinbase. The maximum amount varies per state.
To get started, log in to your account to see if you are eligible to take out a loan or a line of credit. Follow the on-screen instructions to determine how much you can borrow.
In most states, the minimum amount you can borrow is $100. For Ohio, the minimum is $1001 and $10,001 for California and Arizona.
You can borrow up to $100,000 with an eight percent APR rate, which is lower than most personal loans. Each month, you can pay just the interest and wait up to a year to pay the principal amount. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Support.
