The top exchange noted that the tokens were added due to continuous requests from users, demanding to be able to trade more assets on the platform.
Additionally, Coinbase Pro noted that the newly added coins will be available in Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions apart from Singapore. The exchange added that CHZ and SHIB will also not be available to customers based in New York.
Notably, trading, once it begins, will include CHZ-USD, CHZ-EUR, CHZ-GBP, CHZ-USDT, KEEP-USD, SHIB-USD, and SHIB-USDT. Also, order books will launch in three phases: post-only, limit-only, and full trading.
Coinbase Pro Adds Support for DOT and DOGE
It is also worth noting that in addition to CHZ, Coinbase Pro added support for DOT, the native currency of the Polkadot blockchain, a few days ago.
Starting today, inbound transfers for DOT are now available in the regions where trading is supported. Traders cannot place orders and no orders will be filled. Trading will begin on or after 9AM PT on Wednesday June 16, if liquidity conditions are met. https://t.co/iWgfMf9B4x
