US-based cryptocurrency trading platform – Coinbase – announced listing terms for new digital assets along with the system for submitting applications.
The company spokespersons stated in the Coinbase blog that the coin expansion decision was based on numerous requests received from the platform users.
"While one of our top customer requests has been to add support for many new digital assets, we have been determining how to do this in a compliant and secure way that maintains the standards our customers have come to expect," the statement reads.
Notably, the company mentioned that they are striving to list all digital assets that comply with the exchange standards and local regulation. To achieve these targets, the Coinbase team has developed a secure process of adding new cryptos to the platform.
"Today we’re announcing a new listing process that will allow us to rapidly add most digital assets that meet our standards and are compliant with the local law while providing our customers with the tools to discover, evaluate, trade, and use digital assets."
At the same time, there was a warning that some coins can become available only for the certain jurisdictions in the future due to features of the regulation in the countries,
The projects that want to list their coins can now use an online application form. For reference, Coinbase now offers trading of bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic and Litecoin, though the company is reportedly considering expansion of this list.
