“These new assets include, in alphabetical order: Avalanche, Celo, Chia, Coda, Dfinity, Filecoin, Handshake, Kadena, Mobilecoin, NEAR, Nervos, Oasis, Orchid, Polkadot, Solana, Spacemesh, and Telegram.”
Unlike previous additions, this list is full of largely unknown quantities. Telegram’s token offering is likely to be the most familiar of the 17-strong list. What is becoming clear however, is that should there be a repeat of 2017’s bull-run, Coinbase will have a much stronger list of Altcoin offerings. Coinbase was the number one app on the App Store during that period, and the platform will be eager to have a much stronger offering of Altcoins, should the market see another 2-week period of utter chaos.
