Coinbase Custody Considers Addition of 37 New Assets Including XRP, EOS and XMR

Aug 3rd, 2018

San Francisco-based exchange and wallet service Coinbase announced today, Aug. 3 that it is exploring the addition of 40 new assets to its custodial service, Coinbase Custody. The blog post stresses that the crypto assets may be added "for storage only," and that Coinbase will add them "as quickly and safely as possible." Coinbase states that they are not currently considering the assets for trading. According to the post: "We are making this announcement internally at Coinbase and to the public at the same time to remain transparent with our customers about support for future assets." Among the new assets being considered for storage are Ripple (XRP), EOS, Monero (XMR), VeChain (VEN), Cardano (ADA), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), and Telegram. Coinbase noted that the addition of an asset to Coinbase Custody is not indicative of whether it will be added to other Coinbase products. It also states that assets under consideration for trading must pass the GDAX Digital Asset Framework. The exchange states that customers may see public-facing APIs and other indicators that Coinbase is in the process of adding support for new digital assets. Coinbase "...cannot commit to when or whether these assets will become available on Coinbase Custody, we will provide updates to our customers about the process and what they can expect..." Coinbase Custody launched on July 2 of this year, aiming to address the "number one" concern of institutional investors, namely, security. The new service purportedly utilizes a range of security measures including "on-chain segregation of crypto assets," "offline, multi-sig and geographically distributed transaction protection" and "robust cold storage auditing and reporting." The company also plans to add "secure, segregated hot wallets." The recently launched custodial service is also secured through an SEC-compliant and FINRA-member independent broker-dealer, Electronic Transaction Clearing(ETC).

Bitcoin Price Drops to $7,900 as SEC Denies Winklevoss ETF, Market Loses $11 Billion

Jul 27th, 2018

The bitcoin price has dropped by nearly 4 percent almost immediately after the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) denied the Winklevoss bitcoin ETF on July 27. A sudden drop in the price of BTC from $8,300 to $7,900 led other major digital assets and small market cap tokens to fall substantially in both value and volume. Consequently, the crypto market lost $11 billion in valuation overnight, primarily due to the short-term decline of BTC. Apart from VeChain (VEN), which has demonstrated a 20 percent increase in value supported by strong momentum on July 26, the majority of major digital assets and tokens experienced a significant drop in price, in the range of 5 to 12 percent. WanChain, Komodo, Stratis, Polymath, Aion, Stellar, and Basic Attention Token, which have performed well against bitcoin and the US dollar throughout the past five days, were the worst performers on Friday, losing nearly 12 percent of their value against the US dollar. While the drop in the price of Stellar was expected given its 20 percent price surge on July 25 initiated by a strategic partnership it secured, the decline of BAT, POLY, and KMD was unexpected, given their strong performance throughout July. Evidently, the price of BTC has fallen due to the rejection of the Winklevoss bitcoin ETF and in a logical sense, if investors initially believed that the price of BTC surged from $6,800 to $8,500 triggered by the increase in anticipation towards the approval of a bitcoin ETF, it makes sense for the price of BTC to drop even lower. But, the Winklevoss bitcoin ETF is not the ETF the cryptocurrency market has been anticipating since mid-July. Rather, the market has been highly optimistic regarding the VanEck-SolidX bitcoin ETF and the Cboe ETF, considering that VanEck and Cboe are strictly regulated and well recognized financial institutions in the US. Specifically, VanEck has the experience of filing, deploying, and overseeing hundreds of ETFs, and it has strategically partnered with SolidX to assist its bitcoin ETF in receiving the approval from the US SEC. Generally, major investors have expressed their reluctance towards the approval of a bitcoin ETF by the end of 2018, and even with the VanEck-SolidX and Cboe ETFs, investors expect the SEC to delay its decision until early 2019. It is possible that the price of BTC dips below the $7,700 mark and test the $7,600 resistance level in the next short-term movement. If it remains stable in the $7,700 region, a recovery back to the $8,000 region is a likely scenario but if BTC moves below the $7,700 mark relatively quickly, a drop to the mid-$7,000 region can be expected. The reaction of the market towards the disapproval of the Winklevoss bitcoin ETF was exaggerated and was intensified by panicking investors who initiated a large sell-off within a 30-minute period.


Coinbase Hires Former AWS and Microsoft Employee Tim Wagner as New VP of Engineering

Aug 7th, 2018

Coinbase has hired a former AWS and Microsoft exec as the new VP of engineering in order to build the "most open, secure, and accessible financial system." Former Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft employee Tim Wagner has joined Coinbase as vice president (VP) of engineering, according to a blogpost August 6. Wagner will now lead Coinbase's engineering team, which is "central to [Coinbase's] mission of creating an open financial system for the world," Coinbase writes in the post. Aiming to build the "most open, secure, and accessible financial system," Wagner will also be responsible for expanding the team by hiring engineering talent in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago, according to his LinkedIn profile. Prior to Coinbase, Wagner served as general manager (GM) at AWS for more than five years, with his most recent positions at AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and AWS Serverless App Repository. Before AWS, Wagner spent several years at Microsoft, serving as the director of development at Microsoft's Visual Studio Ultimate. San Francisco-based crypto exchange and wallet Coinbase has also recently hired Wall Street exec Jeff Horowitz as its new Chief Compliance Officer, and Rachel Horowitz, who previously served at Twitter and Facebook as a communications expert, as the new VP of Communications. Last week, Coinbase announced it started exploring the listing of 49 new assets on its custodial service, including storage for such cryptocurrencies as Ripple (XRP), EOS, Monero (XMR), VeChain (VEN), Cardano (ADA), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), and Telegram.


Coinbase Custody Service To Add 37 More Crypto Assets

Aug 6th, 2018

US-based crypto exchange Coinbase's recently launched new cryptocurrency custody service for institutional investors called Coinbase Custody is planning to add nearly 37 more existing and forthcoming crypto assets. These assets are considered for storage only at this time and not for trading purpose. The proposed new assets include Bitcoin Gold (BTG), XRP, EOS, NEO, NEM, Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC), XLM, DASH, VeChain (VEN) Tezos (XTZ), Dogecoin (DOGE), Telegram (TON), and NANO. Coinbase, however, did not commit to when or whether these assets will become available on Coinbase Custody. Coinbase Custody provides secure storage of large amounts of crypto assets for institutional clients in both the US and Europe. It currently supports only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The introduction of the secure crypto asset storage solution addressed the main concern among institutional investors of strict financial controls and secure storage facilities for their digital assets. The custody services are provided through its partner Electronic Transaction Clearing (ETC), which is a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-registered and regulated institutional broker-dealer and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) member. In mid-July, Coinbase had announced plans to work with local banks and regulators to explore the possibility of adding five more new crypto assets for trading in as many jurisdictions as possible. Coinbase aims to add Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC), and 0x (ZRX). by RTTNews Staff Writer
