GDAX is an upgrade of Coinbase's exchange services in order to fulfill the needs of professional traders and corporate clients.

Coinbase is still available, now with the singular purpose of serving the needs of retail customers.
GDAX was designed especially for users with a solid technical background. It offers a multi-functional user interface with complex chart views and advanced order types. Deposit and withdrawal fees are different from one currency to another. For example, USD deposits have a fixed fee of $10, while the fee per withdrawal is $25.

The FDIC insurance is available only for US customers.

The founder of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, decided in 2016 to create a special exchange for trading companies and professionals. GDAX was designed as a separate product with complex features to fit the needs of trading firms. The exchange platform is based in San Francisco, CA. While GDAX is expanding, Coinbase continues its pursuit to help regular users trade cryptocurrencies.
GDAX has the clear goal of being one of the most important exchange platforms available for developers and professional traders. Trading pairs are limited, so users seeking variety won't find GDAX to be the best solution. There have not been any major security breaches, but as always we recommend that users transfer their assets to a cold storage wallet for a better security.
Deposit from bank account, Withdrawl funds to bank account, Send/Receive Crypto
GDAX doesn't offer support for customers in several US regions like Wyoming, Hawaii, and Minnesota. Also, the platform is not available for the entire EU. A few other major countries are not yet supported. One of the most important differences between GDAX and Coinbase is the fact that GDAX can help you save on fees on certain transactions. Transactions between Coinbase and GDAX are free.
Limited coins for trading and restricted service in some countries.
