All Eyes On Coinbase Pro
The crypto community’s curiosity has been aroused from the announcement of a scheduled maintenance on the Database belonging to Coinbase Pro. All Crypto traders are aware that the exchange had expressed its interest in listing the five digital assets of Ox (ZRX), Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA), ZCash (ZEC) and Basic Attention Token (BAT).
Of the five digital assets, only Ox (ZRX) has been listed and Coinbase Pro was the first to offer trading services of the cryptocurrency. Therefore, the question on many Crypto-traders’ minds, is whether the database maintenance is geared towards adding support for the other 4 digital assets and more.
One twitter user had this to say about the announcement:
Adding $XLM or $BAT?! If so, add both please.
About Coinbase Pro
Coinbase Pro was launched in late May of this year as an evolution of GDAX which had been launched by Coinbase only 3 years prior. Coinbase Pro was more than a rebranding of the platform. It was a completely redesigned platform for traders wanting more features to amplify their user experience.
