Obtain Coinbase OAuth2 Access Token

This tool demonstrates how to get a Coinbase OAuth2 access token using three-legged OAuth2 in an ASP.NET application. This is also known as the "authorization code grant flow". This is when your ASP.NET app acts on the behalf of a third-party user, your app must obtain the user's permission before it can make requests that access and update that third-party's confidential resources. A User access token carries a third-party's authorization to access specific resources, and this type of token is obtained through the authorization code grant flow.
