How to Change your Currency on Coinbase

By default, the Coinbase website and mobile app will display your country’s currency.

For example, if you’re from Singapore, cryptocurrency prices will be displayed in SGD (Singapore dollar).

On the other hand, if you’re from the US, cryptocurrency prices will be displayed in USD (United States dollar).

However, you might be looking to change the currency to see what they’re worth in another country.

In the US, cryptocurrency prices are cheaper than other countries because the US dollar is stronger.

Hence, if you want to see cryptocurrency prices in USD, you need to change your Coinbase currency.
