None of the rumors have proven true.
Te and , coins and mining talent way to tokens tied up to ambitious startups. But unluckily, the market wasgoed soon flooded with Ethereum-based tokens, and exchanges became very picky about their listings.
Wij&rsquo,re excited to announce our intention to support the Ethereum ERC20 technical standard for Coinbase te the coming months.
Now, Coinbase has made an announcement that could affect the fate of some tokens, both te the brief and long term. The most widely used US-based exchange service is programma to integrate the ERC-20 standard, potentially permitting users to directly buy into post-ICO projects. Coinbase has refrained from mentioning any presente assets with the ERC-20 standard.
But given the latest stir of BitPanda to embark its own ICO, having a support for tokens permits Coinbase, at least te theory, to launch a similar campaign. It is unknown how regulators would react, given that some tokens are considered unregistered securities, and ICOs have often bot closed to US buyers just for that reason.
The initial effect for the adoption of ERC-20 standard support would mean that Coinbase would be able to hold and securely store deposited tokens. Some of the tokens may also be listed and traded on GDAX after the zindelijk research procedures, but a listing on Coinbase would be a separate decision.
At the ogenblik, some users have sent tokens to a Coinbase address, thus locking them away. Merienda Coinbase becomes a custodian of ERC-20 tokens, it would be able to provide a recovery te those cases. However, the tokens would not be available for commercial purposes at this stage.
ERC-20 tokens have very varied risk profiles, and none of the assets has bot making open claims about being listed on Coinbase. Rumors of listings have affected other leading coins like Ripple (XRP) and DASH, but also more recently, NANO (XRB). None of the rumors have proven true. At the uur, the leading token te terms of market capitalization is EOS. Most ICO project tokens are relatively unknown to Coinbase users, and have boomed on Asian speculative trading. Despite the ICO expansión te , Ethereum-based assets have bot submerging, and Ethereum (ETH) itself fell below $500 again.
