The American exchange Coinbase, which announced its plans for a possible large-scale addition of cryptocurrency assets to its platform, without delay, listed four of them.
They are ERC-20 standard tokens: Civic (CVC), district0x (DNT), Loom Network (LOOM) and Decentraland (MANA). All tokens will soon be released on its main trading platform Coinbase Pro in pairs with USD Coin (USDC).
"We recognize that there are popular assets that we have not yet added to our platform. Our decision to add ERC20 tokens first is based on the relative ease of integrating the standard with our existing infrastructure, particularly from a security standpoint."
By the time of publication, the exchange has already started accepting deposits in these tokens and will do this for at least 48 hours before opening the auction. As usual, the listing of new assets on Coinbase Pro will be carried out in four stages: replenishment of accounts, execution of limit orders, comparison of limit orders and the opening of full functionality.
The company confirmed that it continues to consider listing other cryptocurrency assets, including non-tokens of the ERC-20 standard.
Earlier, some community members suggested that listing new assets in pairs with USDC is Coinbase’s deliberate policy to undermine bitcoin’s status as the base currency of the cryptocurrency market.
