The American cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has revealed a list of 19 cryptocurrencies and tokens that may be available for trading in the near future.
According to the Coinbase announcement, these include the following crypto assets: Ampleforth, Band Protocol, Balancer, Blockstack, Curve, Fetch.ai, Flexacoin, Helium, Hedera Hashgraph, Kava, Melon, Ocean Protocol, Paxos Gold, Reserve Rights, The Graph, THETA, tBTC, UMA, and WBTC. The exchange analyzes the technical characteristics of these crypto assets and their compliance with regulatory requirements. To place some of them, you will need to get permission from regulators in certain jurisdictions.
Coinbase warned that it does not guarantee the placement of the listed crypto assets, and the absence of other cryptocurrencies in the list does not mean that the exchange will not consider listing them in the future. Most of the cryptocurrencies and tokens specified by Coinbase for a potential listing are traded in the “green zone” – their exchange rate increased by 2-8% per day.
Last fall, Coinbase was exploring the possibility of adding 17 cryptocurrencies, including the Gram token from Telegram. In 2018, the exchange revised the process of placing crypto assets on its platform. Before the assets will be included in the listing, issuers must undergo a thorough evaluation process. In addition, the exchange decided to list assets that comply with local laws, meaning that certain assets will be available in some regions and not in others.
