The list of candidates for listing was published in Coinbase’s blog and Twitter account. It includes Ton, Filecoin, Polkadot, Orchid, Kadena and another cryptocurrencies. Perhaps the most prominent names in it are Pavel Durov’s project and Filecoin. The last project was carried out by the super successful ICO in 2017, it was almost inactive in 2018, but now it is active in development and interaction with users.
The exchange’s statement says that listing of these coins is just an opportunity and it will happen only if they comply with U.S. legislation and Coinbase technical standards. Over time, the exchange plans to add to the platform up to 90% of all cryptoassets. This means that Coinbase changed its marketing strategy, because before this exchange was very demanding to listing candidates. Also Coinbase has very strict rules of KYC and AML, but it can produce a trully great effect to the price of listed currency. There are not many exchanges like this in crypto, probably it’s the most popular platform in the US, it raised millions of dollars from VC in 2013.
The history of trading shows that the cryptocurrencies that begin to trade on the largest exchanges are rising in price before listing and sometimes at the time of listing. Usually it happens with any currency during its listing on Binance and Coinbase. Today’s news is likely to have a positive impact on the price of these assets. So you can buy Filecoin (FIL), Polkadot (DOT) by using Token Place.
