On Monday (August 5), crypto exchange Coinbase announced that it is "exploring the addition of a range of new assets."
In a blog post published on Monday, Coinbase's Listings team (which is headed by Zach Segal, Founder at "Blockchain Curated") said that they were considering adding the following cryptoassets: Algorand (ALGO), Cosmos (ATOM), Dash (DASH), Decred (DCR), Matic Network (MATIC), Harmony (ONE), Ontology (ONT), and Waves (WAVES).
It is interesting to note that two of the digital assets under review are Matic Network (MATIC) and Harmony (ONE), which were initial exchange offerings (IEOs) earlier this year on Binance Launchpad.
The blog post also mentioned that the decision to list any particular digital asset "requires significant technical and compliance review and may be subject to regulatory approval in some jurisdictions," and so they cannot "guarantee" that any of these assets will ever get listed on any Coinbase product in any jurisdiction.
Furthermore, if they decide to add support for any of these digital assets, they will add them "on a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction basis, subject to applicable review and authorizations."
Finally, Coinbase said that they plan to make similar announcements in the future in keeping with their stated goal of supporting all assets that meet their technical standards (i.e. pass the evaluation criteria that are part of their Digital Asset Framework) and "comply with applicable laws."
According to CryptoCompare, here is how these cryptoassets are doing at press time (18:56 UTC on August 5):
