The first was crypto exchange Coinbase, which announced yesterday that Coinbase Pro, its platform for experienced and professional traders, would soon be listing Cardano’s ADA token.
According to Coinbase’s blog post, Coinbase has already stated accepting inbound transfers of ADA to Coinbase Pro, with trading due to begin on or after 16:00 UTC on Thursday, March 18, providing that “liquidity conditions are met.”
Shortly after Coinbase’s announcement, Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, “welcomed Coinbase to the Cardano family.”
On crypto exchange Kraken, around 17:39 UTC on March 16 (about 38 minutes after Coinbase’s announcement came out), the price of Cardano’s ADA token reached $1.2800, which was yesterday’s intraday high and the highest that ADA had had since March 2. By 06:53 UTC on March 17, the Cardano community was enjoying seeing ADA trade around $1.2873, which is today’s intraday high.
Per data by CryptoCompare, currently (as of 17:46 UTC on March 17), ADA is trading around $1.241, up 1.06% in the past 24-hour period. In the year-to-date (YTD) period, ADA is up 583%.
The next company to deliver good news was Twitter.
Around more or less the time that Coinbase announced it was going to launch support for Cardano, Hoskinson posted on Twitter that he was fed up that Twitter had not yet verified him or provided him with a means to get verified, that too many people were carrying out scams by using his name, and that if he did not get verified soon, he would quit Twitter.
And 30 minutes later, he went on Periscope to explain in more detail why this verification of his Twitter account was important.
Well, today, Twitter finally took notice of this ridiculous situation and did something about it.
As you can in the tweet below, Hoskinson, at long last, has a (“verified”) checkmark next to his name:
And finally, Real Vision, the financial media company headed by former Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal, is currently running a Twitter poll that is asking people which cryptoasset has “the best performance potential over the long term”; the four available choices are ETH, ADA, LINK, and DOT.
As of 18:05 UTC on March 17, here the results of this poll (with 5711 votes cast so far):
