Coinbase Looks to Add Support for Telegram and 16 Other Digital Assets

San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is looking to add support for Telegram and 16 additional digital assets.

San Francisco-based crypto exchange and wallet provider Coinbase has announced the support for Telegram and 16 additional digital assets.

Coinbase adds support for 17 digital assets

On Sept. 19, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase announced that it is considering the addition of a range of new assets; namely, Avalanche, Celo, Chia, Coda, Dfinity, Filecoin, Handshake, Kadena, Mobilecoin, NEAR, Nervos, Oasis, Orchid, Polkadot, Solana, Spacemesh, and Telegram.

Coinbase added that it intends to explore assets that have not yet launched and which Coinbase may choose to support in the future. 

Telegram, for example, recently released its Telegram Open Network (TON) testnet explorer and node software on its website. However, it has yet to distribute its network's native token, GRAM, which is planned to happen two months from now.

Moreover, Coinbase emphasized that new tokens may not come online everywhere at the same time, given differing legal requirements. The blog post explained:

“We will add new assets on a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction basis, subject to applicable review and authorizations.” 

Coinbase Pro adds support for DASH trading

As Cointelegraph reported on Sept. 14, Coinbase announced that its professional trading platform Coinbase Pro had plans to launch support for DASH token. The launch of DASH trading started at 9 AM Pacific Standard Time on Sept. 17.

According to the announcement, DASH will be available in Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions, with the exception of New York State and the United Kingdom. Additional regions “may be added at a later date.”
