Coinbase Pro continues to explore new digital assets to add to their platform. On Wednesday, April 7 it announced it is listing a number of tokens that have shown promise to investors and passed their standards.
Coinbase Pro has announced plans to support such tokens as 1inch (1INCH), Enjin Coin (ENJ), NKN (NKN) and Origin Token (OGN). In a blog post, the exchange indicated that clients could begin sending these tokens to the exchange. However, trading would begin on or after 9 AM Pacific Time (PT) Friday, April 9, if liquidity conditions are met.
Announcing the support for new tokens, Coinbase Pro noted in a post:
“Once sufficient supply of 1INCH, ENJ, NKN, OGN is established on the platform, trading on our 1INCH-USD, 1INCH-BTC, 1INCH-EUR, 1INCH-GBP, ENJ-USD, ENJ-BTC, NKN-USD, NKN-BTC, OGN-USD and OGN-BTC order books will launch in three phases, post-only, limit-only and full trading.”
The coins are not yet supported by the main platform, Coinbase.com or the mobile app. This is the set trend by the exchange where coins are first tested on the Coinbase Pro before finally being listed on the main platform following trading success. The most recent coin to go through this cycle is Cardano (ADA).
Coins that make it into the main platform also experience a “Coinbase effect” phenomenon. Of all exchanges, Coinbase has the highest return on tokens following their listing. Coins listed gain an average of 91% in five days according to research firm Messari. And Cardano did miss out on this treat. If and when the new tokens end up being supported, the exchange has stated it will notify users.
