After the listing of XRP and XLM, all eyes are now focused on Cardano (ADA). Will ADA be the last of a long-awaited group of cryptocurrencies that will be added to the exchange? 

This week, Stellar Lumens (XLM) suddenly got listed on Coinbase Pro. Stellar’s cryptocurrency, the Stellar Lumen (XLM), powers the Stellar payment network. Stellar aims to connect banks, payment systems and individuals quickly and reliably.

Shortly after the announcement and listing of XLM, the speculation started regarding the potential future listings of  other altcoins that were previously mentioned by Coinbase in July last year. Out of that list, Cardano is the only one left that needs to be added.

On July 13, Coinbase announced that they were considering the possibility of adding 5 cryptocurrencies to their platform. The altcoins in question were: Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and 0x (ZRX). Besides ADA, the four other digital assets have been added to Coinbase.

Cardano, a smart contract platform – much like Ethereum, got created by ETH co-founder Charles Hoskinson. Cardano is looking to build a network of blockchain use that extends beyond monetary transfers. Cardano is home to the Ada cryptocurrency, which can be used to send and receive digital funds.

Based on the theory that Coinbase is still listing all the cryptocurrencies mentioned in July 2018, Cardano will indeed be next to be added. Of course, this is pure speculation, but looking at the gains that ADA has made over the week it seems that many traders do have a similar theory.


  1. As usual speculation is rampent as holders of ADA who write articles hype the heck out of their favorite speculative holdings. For once I’d love to read where one of these people has contacted and interviewed lead Engineers, programmers or founders. It would be damn nice to have some non speculative information printed, so substance rather than some kids hopes.

  2. No Retreat, No Surender.
    Cardano (ADA) the making of a superior product. The fact that Cardano is late with its rollout of Shelley is a wonderful thing . It shows that the folks at Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), EMURGO, and the Cardano Foundation, are more concerned about the quality, of the end product. When they rollout Shelley they want it to go without glitches. Another great thing about it allows more people to get in at a low price before it does its moonshot.

    I am a confirmed HODL’er of ADA. The way that Charles Hoskinson approached Cardano as an engineered product, not like a sleazy used car salesman, this gives me a lot of confidence, also the way Charles keeps us updated about things means he has a lot of respect for people who are invested in Cardano’s success. Another thing he wants to help put Regulations in place, remember only someone who is legitimate would look to be regulated, also looking to unselfishly protect the crypto market as a whole. With all these factors taken in mind I feel Cardano is a true investment, it is not speculation. The best thing I can say is people should not Pump & Dump ADA, but instead just buy more ADA while it’s still a bargain. Let say Cryptocurrency is like a Baseball Game we are so early in the game they are now just singing the national anthem. We are the geeks who got in to this before the smart money has gotten in, and way earlier then the Herd. Don’t Stop Believing.
