"Polkadot is probably right towards the top of that list. I think avalanche, I think probably cardano is on that list. I think those are all blockchains that we want," he added.
While the exact date for the listing remains undisclosed, Bankman-Fried hints the exchange wants to have more listings in the next month or two. FTX's plans for more coins comes as cardano (ADA) keeps updating its all-time highs. Over the past 30 days, ADA gained over 116.3%, while polkadot (DOT) and avalanche (AVAX) surged by 75% and 239% respectively.
Earlier in August, the FTX CEO warned that the mainstream can not keep up with the market of non-fungible tokens (NFT) as it evolves too rapidly. He also doubted that most people getting on the hype train understand the idea behind NFT tokens.
