Bitcoin-exchange Coinbase Pro announced the addition of new trading pairs of British pound with ETC, ETH and LTC. According to the general manager of the exchange, David Farmer, the new pairs will be available on Friday, September 7.

With support for UK domestic bank transfers in GBP via the Faster Payments Scheme, it is now significantly easier, faster and cheaper for UK customers to trade cryptocurrencies on the Coinbase platform. Coinbase Pro is the only major digital currency trading platform that supports UK Faster Payments and it’s our goal to be the trading platform of choice for UK crypto traders. In advance of the launch of the new trading pairs, all UK customers now have access to send GBP to their Coinbase accounts via domestic bank transfer.

It is reported that the launch of new trading pairs is scheduled for September 7 at 09:00 BST and will be held in three stages:

  1. Post-only. In the first stage, customers can post limit orders but there will be no matches (completed orders). Order books will be in post-only mode for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  2. Limit-only. In the second stage, limit orders will start matching but customers are unable to submit market orders. Order books will be in limit-only mode for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  3. Full trading. In the final stage, full trading services will be available, including limit, market, and stop orders.

In August, support for Ethereum Classic (ETC) was added to Coinbase Pro.

OKEx & Kraken to List Bitcoin SV

Kraken notes that Bitcoin SV doesn't meet its usual listing requirements

OKEx Bitcoin exchange, charged holders of Bitcoin Cash with BCHABC and BCHSV coins. Bidding for each asset is available in pairs with Tether USD, Bitcoin, Ethereum and OKB token.

Note that futures, margin trading and fiat pairs will remain unavailable for new assets. The withdrawal of coins is also closed indefinitely.

In turn, the Kraken exchange assigned the BCH ticker to the Bitcoin ABC chain, but also made a decision on the listing of Bitcoin SV (BSV).

WARNING: Bitcoin SV does NOT meet Kraken’s usual listing requirements. It should be seen as an extremely high risk investment. There are many red flags that traders should be aware of:

  • No known wallets supporting replay protection (be careful!)
  • No support in major block explorers
  • Miners apparently subsidized or operating at a loss
  • Representatives threatening and openly hostile toward other chains
  • Chain’s survival may be mutually exclusive with other chains
  • Supply is temporarily constrained because of limited wallet support
  • Some large holders have indicated they’d be dumping everything ASAP
  • Kraken has done only very minimal code review

Custodial losses taken on due to attacks originating from nChain or its affiliates will be socialized among all BSV holders on Kraken. Given the volatile state of the network and threats that have been made, Kraken cannot guarantee perfect custody of BSV.

BSV trading will be available in pairs with Bitcoin, fiat USD and Euro.

Meanwhile, the BSV rate in the last 24 hours fell by almost 30%, dropping below $ 90.
