Coinbase is investigating the acceptance of another 18 tokens, the cryptocurrency exchange announced today in a blog postincluding considering tokens not yet launched.
The 18 tokens the company is considering are: Aave, Aragon, Arweave, Bancor, COMP, DigiByte, Horizen, Livepeer, NuCypher, Numeraire, KEEP Network, Origin Protocol, Ren, Render Network, Siacoin (but not Siafunds), SKALE Network , Synthetix and VeChain.
“Today we announce our intention to explore assets that have not been launched and that Coinbase may support in the future,” the post reads. “We will continue to evaluate future assets using our Digital Asset Framework to assess factors such as security, compliance and alignment of the project with our mission to create an open financial system for the world.”
According to the post, users can see signs of technical work and public APIs around the considered tokens, although Coinbase has not yet confirmed the addition of any of them. Regulatory compliance issues may cause certain currencies to be delayed or prevented in certain jurisdictions.
DigitByte (DGB) is one of the standout tokens on the list, given the cryptocurrency’s explosive growth in recent weeks. The price was up 930% over a period of two months this spring, but then decreased 20% after founder Jared Tate announced he would step back. Still, the price remains dramatically higher than at the beginning of the year.
Other interesting tokens include Synthetix and Bancor, both of which come under the “DeFi Tokens” banner. Earlier this week, DeFi Market Cap reported the total value of DeFi tokens passed the $ 2 billion mark over the weekend – just weeks after reaching the $ 1 billion mark.
