Game-Changer? Coinbase Overhauls Cryptocurrency Listing Process

Coinbase has announced a new procedure for listing assets with the sole purpose of speeding up the process of listing digital assets that meet the exchange’s standards, per a company blog post. The San Francisco-based company, which currently supports bitcoin and popular altcoins such as bitcoin cash, ethereum classic, and litecoin, says it’s getting tougher to list all the asset types they want in a “secure and compliant way” for digital assets that meet the company’s current listing standards.

The solution, according to the post, is to list assets complaint with local law, in a “jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction manner” — which means some assets might be available in some regions and absent in others.

Issuers will go through a simple process for evaluation of their assets before they are listed on the cryptocurrency exchange. It starts with a signup form for issuers to complete, which contains details of the assets, which the company will then evaluate against its digital asset framework. The framework is, however, not set in stone. Coinbase says it will be updated regularly and the form will always convey the version of the framework that the company is using for evaluation at the time.

The new listing process is free for issuers, but things could change in the near future. Coinbase says the volume of submissions will determine whether it imposes an application fee in the future to “defray the legal and operational costs associated with evaluating and listing new assets.”

The firm continued:

“At our discretion, we may choose to list some assets on the basis of our own evaluation, even in the absence of an application. In other cases, we will attempt to give quick, specific reasons for the approval or rejection of particular assets.”

Coinbase expects to list more digital assets — faster — with the change in the listing process. The company has also altered how it will conduct listing announcements, and it says new assets will now be announced at or near the time of public launch across Coinbase’s products.

Earlier this year, Coinbase added support for ethereum classic. The digital asset platform also raised the daily buy limits for users to $25,000 and eliminated the sell limit. The exchange also began permitting users to begin trading on the platform immediately following a purchase. Previously, users had to wait for the bank transfer to settle before receiving their funds, a process that could take up to five business days.

Bitcoin Sinks Below $3,200 as Teenage Bitcoin Millionaire Says Its Dead

It’s yet another dark day for Bitcoin. In fact, it’s the darkest one this year. The currency has once again set a new low for the year. At press time, the currency was trading at $3,230, down 10 percent in just 24 hours. The currency was performing especially poorly on some markets such as BitMEX, Coinbase Pro and Bitstamp where it was trading at $3,180. Since the week began, Bitcoin has lost close to $500. The currency’s immediate future looks bleak, especially given that it’s entering the weekend. Historically, cryptos have performed very poorly during weekends. With the currency sinking further and further for the year, one investor who made millions through Bitcoin has further added fuel to the fire. According to Erik Finman, the currency is dead. Finman made millions by investing in Bitcoin back in 2011 when only a few investors knew of the currency. However, according to him, the currency could have a few more bull runs but in the long term, it’s dead. Bitcoin Could Test the $3,000 Level Bitcoin hasn’t been for the faint hearted this year. It has tested various support levels and come up short. The $6,000 level seemed strong for quite some time, but even that came up short. And now, the currency seems poised to test the $3,000 level. In just the past one month, Bitcoin has halved in value. The assault had seemed to begin a reversal days ago when it hit $3,700 on some markets, but the bears seem to be in control of the market movements. On most markets, the father of crypto was trading just above $3,200. HitBTC continues to be one of the most friendly markets, with the price standing at $3,318. However, on American exchanges, the currency continues to perform dismally with Coinbase, Kraken and Gemini all trading at $3,180. Bitcoin could test the $3,000 level soon, with the current market making many investors frantic and eager to sell. The current sellout is the largest since July when the currency lost $3,000 in weeks causing traders to panic. With the weekend kicking off, it could drop further. Whether the currency can bounce back will largely depend on its ability to stay above the $3,000 support level. Bitcoin Is Dead – Teenage Millionaire As if the current turmoil isn’t enough for investors, a teenage Bitcoin millionaire has some more devastating news. According to Erik Finman, Bitcoin is dead. Finman believes that while it may not be immediate, it will slowly ebb away. He told MarketWatch: Bitcoin is dead, it’s too fragmented, there’s tons of infighting I just don’t think it will last. It may have a bull market or two left in it, but long-term, its dead. Finman began investing in Bitcoin in 2011 using money gifted to him by his grandmother. The early adopter grabbed the headlines last year after he turned his $1,000 investment into a $4 million fortune. However, he believes that those investors that are out to make millions as he did will lose their investment. And it’s not just Bitcoin. Finman believes that the future is even bleaker for Litecoin, the ‘silver to Bitcoin’s gold’. The currency is currently trading at $23, down 93 percent from its all-time high of $365. Litecoin has been dead for a while. It’s like when the sun is going down and there’s that eight minute period just before it goes dark. Litecoin is in its seventh minute.
