Coinbase announced the launch of Coinbase Wallet called Toshi, which the company's specialists have been working on for the past year and a half.

According to the company's representatives, Coinbase Wallet should be viewed not simply as a tool for accessing cryptocurrencies, but as a starting point for decentralized Internet.

We believe that the applications of the future will be built on a decentralized internet (the blockchain). Everyone will own a crypto wallet that allows them to access decentralized applications (dapps) and that wallet will be their gateway to the open financial system.

Tooshi development started back in April 2017 under the Ethereum messager Token name. Last months the product development was headed by Peter Kim, the founder of the startup Cipher Browser, which was acquired by Coinbase in April this year.

Toshi features:

  • ERC 20 tokens and Ethereum support
  • Airdrop and ICO tokens support
  • Purchasing and storing crypto collectibles
  • Exchange trade

Coinbase Wallet also allows users to send payments anywhere in the world, giving them access to leading decentralized exchanges and decentralized third-party applications.

Coinbase to be Ranked 1st at New CryptoCompare's Rate

New exchange's benchmark is designed to combat fake trading volume on unregulated exchanges
13 June 2019   183

Analytical service CryptoCompare has launched a rating system for more than 100 platforms for the spot cryptocurrency trading. According to service representatives, it should be a comprehensive, detailed and reliable source of information, and meet the industry’s demand for data transparency.

CryptoCompare combined methods of quantitative and qualitative analysis. The system does not take into account the total trading volume, but the ratio of volume and volatility in combination with the standard deviation of volumes based on more than 30 metrics. In theory, this will help to deal with the problem of fake trading volume on unregulated exchanges.

After analyzing the data for May, the service assigned the first place to the Coinbase, and the top three were closed by Poloniex and Bitstamp. Top 10 also includes BitFlyer, Liquid, itBit, Kraken, Binance, Gemini and Bithumb.

It is noteworthy that this rating is somewhat different from the list of trusted exchanges of Bitwise Asset Management, which in March reported to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about the problem of fake trades. Thus, Bitwise considers Bittrex and Bitfinex to be reliable, but they are not in the top ten from CryptoCompare - instead of them, South Korean Bithumb, which was hacked twice during the year, and Liquid, which announced the upcoming listing of tokens Gram, which supposedly don't know anything about in Telegram .
