Ankr (ANKR) Curve DAO Token (CRV) and Storj (STORJ) are launching on Coinbase Pro
Starting Today Tuesday March 23, transfer ANKR, CRV and STORJ into your Coinbase Pro account ahead of trading. Support for ANKR, CRV and STORJ will be available in all Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions with the exception of CRV in New York State. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT) Thursday March 25, if liquidity conditions are met.
One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. Per the terms of our listing process, we anticipate supporting more assets that meet our standards over time. Most recently we have added trading support for Cardano (ADA), SushiSwap (SUSHI), Polygon (MATIC) SKALE (SKL), The Graph (GRT), Aave, (AAVE), Bancor (BNT), Synthetix (SNX), Filecoin (FIL), NuCypher (NU), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Balancer (BAL), Ren (REN), Uniswap (UNI), yearn.finance (YFI), Loopring (LRC), UMA (UMA) Celo (CGLD), Numeraire (NMR), Band (BAND), Compound (COMP), Maker (MKR) and OmiseGo (OMG), along with supporting additional European and UK order books. Coinbase continues to explore support for new digital assets.
Starting immediately, we will begin accepting inbound transfers of ANKR, CRV and STORJ to Coinbase Pro. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT) Thursday March 25, if liquidity conditions are met.
Once sufficient supply of ANKR, CRV and STORJ is established on the platform, trading on our ANKR-USD, ANKR-BTC, ANKR-EUR, ANKR-GBP, CRV-USD, CRV-BTC, CRV-EUR, CRV-GBP, STORJ-USD and STORJ-BTC, order books will launch in three phases, post-only, limit-only and full trading. If at any point one of the new order books does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period of time or suspend trading as per our Trading Rules.
We will publish tweets from our Coinbase Pro Twitter account as each order book moves through the phases.
Ankr (ANKR) is an ERC-20 token that powers Ankr, a Web3 infrastructure and cross-chain staking DeFi platform that aims to make it easy and affordable for anyone to participate in blockchain ecosystems by building dapps, hosting nodes or staking.The ANKR token can be used to pay for services on the Ankr platform, such as node deployment and API services, participate in on-chain governance and also acts as an insurance for network participants.
Storj (STORJ) is an Ethereum token that powers a decentralized cloud storage network called Tardigrade. After a user uploads a file to Tardigrade, pieces of each file are distributed to a global network of independent nodes. When someone requests the file, it is then recompiled securely and made available for download. This means that anyone can store files on Tardigrade without having to trust a centralized data center. Users can also earn STORJ tokens in return for providing resources to the network, including unused hard drive space and bandwidth.
Curve DAO Token (CRV) is an Ethereum token that powers Curve.fi, a decentralized exchange and automated market maker protocol. The protocol is designed to make it easy to swap between similar ERC-20 tokens, primarily stablecoins (like USDC and DAI) and Ethereum-based Bitcoin tokens (like WBTC and renBTC). In order to minimize impermanent loss, the protocol only hosts pools of similar assets. This means you can provide USDC-DAI-USDT liquidity on Curve, but not, for example, USDC-WBTC. The CRV token can be locked for various periods of time (up to 4 years) in order to vote on governance and claim protocol fees as a reward.
ANKR, CRV and STORJ are not yet available on Coinbase.com or via our Consumer mobile apps. We will make a separate announcement if and when this support is added.
