From many days, there have been rumors that Coinbase is adding Ripple to its assets and the exchange platform has come forward with an official statement. In a blog post today, Coinbase says that it has no plans to add any new assets.
The exchange says, on its blog:
“Coinbase will announce the addition of new assets only via our blog post or other official channels.”
“A committee of internal experts is responsible for determining whether and when new assets will be added to the platform in accordance with our framework. These individuals — and all employees at Coinbase — are subject to confidentiality and trading restrictions.”
It looks like Canada’s Coinsquare is going to get it first, as the Coinbase has made it pretty clear that they have made no decision whatsoever.
“As of the date of this statement, we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase. Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company.”
