Representatives of the largest US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase indirectly rumors that  the exchange will list the XRP.

Our January 4th, 2018 statement continues to stand: we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase.
Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company.


For the first time rumors about the XRP listing appeared after the news that the chief operating officer and president of Coinbase Asiff Hirji together with executive director Ripple Brad Garlinghouse will be guests of the special issue of the program 'Fast Money' on the CNBC channel. Despite the absence of any other information, after the announcement, the XRP course went up and overcame the $ 1 mark.

In addition, it is still unclear whether Hirji and Garlinghouse will appear in the studio together, or each of them will have its own segment.

Recently the ex-manager of LinkedIn Emily Choi took the post of vice-president of Coinbase, and at the end of last year, the former president and chief operating officer of the site became former advisor to Andreessen Horowitz Asiff Hirji.

The largest American cryptocurrency company Coinbase announced the launch of an index fund, focused on accredited investors.

According to representatives of Coinbase, there is a "huge interest" in the cryptocurrency among investors who can invest in new assets from $ 250,000 to $ 20 million.

Coinbase Index Fund gives investors exposure to all assets listed on our exchange, weighted by market capitalization. As we announced yesterday, the fund will be rebalanced to include Ethereum Classic, and more assets when they are listed by Coinbase in the future.

At this stage, Coinbase Index Fund is only open to US-resident accredited investors. We’re working on launching more funds which are accessible to all investors and cover a broader range of digital assets.
