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.

At the same time, APT41 pursues its own goals, extracting financial benefits from attacks, which is unusual for other groups under the Chinese government, according to FireEye.

APT41 is known to include at least two people with the pseudonyms Chzan Xuiguan and Wolfji. The group probably has connections with other hacker organizations like BARIUM and Winnti.

FireEye also evaluated at what time of the day the APT41 attacked the gaming industry (its core target) and businesses from other areas. It turned out that this was happening outside the framework of a standard working day - probably these people, among other things, have the main job.
