What you’ll learn
Price of Ethereum 2 (24H)
ETH2 is an upgrade to the Ethereum network that aims to improve the network’s security and scalability. This upgrade involves a shift in Ethereum’s mining model (“Proof-of-Work”) to a staking model (“Proof-of-Stake”). ETH2 = staked ETH. Coinbase offers our customers the ability to stake their ETH to earn rewards. When you stake your ETH, you earn rewards (up to 4.50% APR) and it converts to ETH2 on Coinbase. You cannot buy ETH2 directly on Coinbase. The price of ETH2 is identical to ETH. Once the upgrade to the Ethereum network is complete, both ETH and ETH2 will merge into one token.
