The leading US cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase, introduced official rules for listing of new digital assets, and also suggested to the project creators a tool with which they can submit relevant applications.

As noted in the blog of the company, the search for a solution to expand the list of available coins prompted numerous user appeals.

Representatives of Coinbase noted that their goal is to list all assets that meet the internal standards of the site and local legislation. To do this, rules were developed for the safe addition of crypto currency.

In its commission, however, the company warned that due to the specifics of the country's legislation, some assets added in the future may be available only to users of certain jurisdictions.

To apply for an asset, project representatives will need to fill out a questionnaire. Simultaneously, the Coinbase team clarified that some assets can be added at its discretion even without filing a listing application.

In addition to adding more assets, Coinbase plans to expand the list of training materials and tools for cryptocurrency trading.

Currently, Coinbase supports five crypto-currencies: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic and Litecoin.

In July, representatives of the site reported that they are studying the possibility of adding Cardano, Basic Attention Token, Stellar Lumens, Zcash and 0x.

The founders of the South Korean exchange Pure Bit, who were suspected of stealing investors' money, announced the return of funds.

According to the local edition of BlockchainROK, representatives of the exchange have already partially returned the money to some users and pledged to return all other funds.

On November 4, the exchange team launched the ICO with the goal of collecting about $ 30 million to create a crypto exchange. However, on November 9, Pure Bit closed the site, said goodbye to its investors and removed everyone from the group in the KakaoTalk messenger. Also, the founders of the exchange withdrew funds from the account that was used for ICO.

According to CCN, one of the issues traced the Ethereum address of the exchange and asked Upbit to block the account and freeze the funds. Upbit fulfilled this request.

This is Pure Bit. First off, I would like to apologize to everyone that was affected by the ICO. Since November 5, I raked in 16,000 ETH and did not open a crypto exchange as promised. I kicked out everyone in our social media chat groups and disappeared without any message. I negatively affected investors in the project psychologically and financially. I made an unforgivable mistake that cannot be turned around, blinded by money. It has been less than a day and I have already started to suffer from guilt. Although it cannot be compared with the hardship faced by the investors, I also felt significant guilt. I sincerely apologize to all of the investors in the ICO who were affected by the operation.
 

CEO of Pure Bit

The founder of Pure Bit also notified that he would return ETH 16,000 to depositors without taking into account the payment of services to a third-party company that organized ICO.
