For the month of December, Coinbase issued more than two announcements showing they are holding up well to the fast rate the crypto market and its participants are maturing.

The Potential 31 are (in alphabetical order):

  • Aeternity (AE), Cardano (ADA), Augur (REP), and Aragon (ANT),
  • Bread Wallet (BRD), ChainLink (LINK), and Civic (CVC),
  • Dai (DAI), Decentraland (MANA), and district0x (DNT),
  • EnjinCoin (ENJ), EOS (EOS), and Golem Network (GNT),

  • Stellar (XLM), Storj (STORJ), and Status (SNT),
  • Tezos (XTZ), and Zilliqa (ZIL).

Coinbase is aiming to make their platform the avenue where users can access more than, by market capitalization, 90% of digital assets which are in regulatory compliance. Evaluation is done based on Coinbase’s Digital Asset Framework where aspects of the tokens, such as its compliance, security, and the objective for fostering an open financial system, are considered.

Mixed Responses from the Community

This announcement from the exchange has amassed an assortment of opinion from its general community. Some are speculative and unhappy, whilst some are more hopeful.

Through this potential new coin listings, Coinbase is showing they can be adaptable to the evolving cryptocurrency market, as well as its participants, that is maturing fast. But according to Bitcoin Exchange Guide, this possible move may create consequences in the market.

The ‘Coinbase Effect’, which is termed by the news outlet, where token prices see an upswing when the exchange issues their support for that particular token. This can negatively affect the price of the coin which the exchange decides to reject. Due to this, the exchange could tread on the lines of market manipulation. Another uneasy matter dabbles with insider trading, where the exchange’s employees have advance knowledge on listing and choosing to purchase before any official announcements are made.

PayPal Withdrawal Support

For its 12 days of Christmas Coinbase offers new features, including support for new cryptocurrencies. This event began on 10 December until 21 December.

Coinbase has a new solution making for fast and smooth crypto-to-fiat transactions. On 14 December the exchange announced their Paypal support surprise. Withdrawals can be made by transferring the funds from the Coinbase Wallet to PayPal. Users from the US can connect their Coinbase accounts with their PayPal accounts and click on Paypal as their choice for withdrawals. Withdrawing funds will not incur any fees, according to Coinbase.

The exchange is continuing on to offer new products and implement new support to keep growing together with the market. At the beginning of this month, Coinbase makes known its intention to give users more control over their data management and launched their own over-the-counter trading desk.

How the Unbanking of Former PayPal CFO by BoA Shows Bitcoin’s Merit

  If you have perused Crypto Twitter at all over the past few months, you’ve likely encountered “Bitcoin fixes this.” The meme, which has quickly become an industry favorite, has become somewhat of a ubiquitous phrase — a catch-all meme if you will — to use whenever the traditional world runs into a problem. Chile is seeing a flurry of massive protests due to growing inequality — there are cryptocurrency and blockchain for you. Fake gold bars are being circulated throughout the precious metals market — meet Bitcoin.  The U.S. is doubling down on tariffs on Chinese goods — you get the point. Related Reading: Bitcoin Fixes This: Top Bank Chief Says Monetary Policy is Failing The usage of this meme has evidently gone out of hand. It’s the internet, what else did you expect? Though, a recent case involving America’s largest bank and one of the most prominent Silicon Valley investors and executives of all-time seemingly mandates the use of the aforementioned meme.  PayPal Mafia Member “Fired” by BoA Roelof Botha, the former chief financial officer of PayPal, recently took to Twitter to divulge a harrowing tidbit of personal news: (the seeming Bitcoin-skeptical) Bank of America — the United States’ largest banking institution that serves dozens of millions of citizens of its namesake country — has just “fired him as a customer.” According to Botha’s tweet on the matter, published Sunday night, the institution told him on November 4th that his “personal checking/savings account will be restricted from use in 21 days, and permanently closed 30 days from the date of this notice.” The Silicon Valley veteran, who now serves as a partner at venture capital giant Sequoia Capital, noted that this notice said that this move was taking place due to a “careful review of your banking relationship.” The letter attached to Botha’s tweet did not give explicit reasoning for this move. LOL, @BankofAmerica just fired world class @sequoia investor and @PayPal mafia consigliere @roelofbotha as a customer. You couldn’t dream up this level of automated ineptitude. Guaranteed Roelof has fielded countless inbounds from B of A’s Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. https://t.co/K0PTgzdA4h pic.twitter.com/GiyMDNKWOT — Mike Dudas (@mdudas) November 18, 2019 Techcrunch founder and head of Arrington XRP Capital Michael Arrington remarked on the news, writing that “Bank of America just fired one of the top five venture capitalists in Silicon Valley.” Arrington also opined that his guess for the reasoning behind this move is that Botha was purchasing Bitcoin with his account, which isn’t strictly verboten but likely looked down upon.

Unlike bank accounts, Bitcoin addresses cannot be “shut down,” nor can wallets; anyone, anywhere, with the proper device and a standard internet connection, can interact with the BTC blockchain, as long as they have some coins to do so. Of course, Botha is unlikely to be turning to Bitcoin as a solution to his banking qualms, but this recent debacle of his unbanking shows the power of decentralization in money.
