“One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. We announced a process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the addition of more cryptocurrencies.”
Coinbase’s management further noted that they’re investing in new tools to assist consumers with understanding and exploring digital currencies. The company has introduced informational asset pages, along with a new section of the Coinbase website to answer frequently-asked questions about cryptocurrencies.
As covered, Coinbase has established Protocol, a team that will be working on scaling Ethereum by integrating it with other solutions. Its first scaling solution to be implemented will be Polygon PoS.
Recently, Coinbase posted a notice regarding receipt of a Wells Notice from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicating the regulator may sue it due to its planned Coinbase Lend program.
Around the same time Coinbase announced the regulators’ investigation, CEO Brian Armstrong took to Twitter and hammered the SEC for its “sketchy behavior.”
