Today, San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase announced that it’s changed its coin listing policy in order to increase cryptocurrency offerings. The new policy changes could result in significantly more coin listings in the future, while transforming Coinbase into a global player.
New Listing Process
From now on, coin creators can go to a new page on Coinbase’s website and submit a listing application without paying a fee. Coinbase will then identify and vet the application based on certain standards. In contrast to the previous policy where Coinbase needed to contact coin projects, now teams can apply and reach out to Coinbase first. Listed assets will no longer be limited to coins that comply with US regulations, as assets can be listed regionally if compliant with regional regulations.
