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.

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.

Coinbase lists MakerDAO stablecoin Dai on its retail platform

Coinbase listed Maker’s stablecoin Dai on its retail trading platform. The move comes is part of a larger strategy to list more trading pairs to keep up with the leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Coinbase attempting to regain market share Coinbase has continued to aggressively list new crypto assets. Once considered the “conservative” crypto exchange stemming from the measured pace at which it added new coins, likely to adhere to more restrictive U.S. regulations, starting late last year the exchange changed its strategy to list a greater number of coins. The change in strategy is possibly a response to Coinbase’s weakening market position. In terms of percentage of total volume, U.S. exchanges including Coinbase are losing market share to the now dominant Binance. Details on Dai Dai is the product of Maker, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that provides collateralized loans through a series of smart contracts and oracles, giving users access to credit without a centralized point of control. Users obtain these loans by locking their Ethereum in a smart contract. In return, users receive Dai, a stablecoin which represents a pool of all ether locked in the platform. Dai is soft-pegged to $1.00 based on the locked-up ETH. Users can then sell Dai for fiat or use it as leverage by trading it for more cryptocurrency. Unlike fiat-backed stablecoins, Dai maintains its peg through monetary policy conducted through the MakerDAO. The “stability fee,” or the annual APR of a loan is adjusted up or down to encourage borrowers to repay or take out loans. These actions increase or decrease the demand for Dai, allowing the DAO to theoretically maintain its $1 peg.
