Coinbase Pro to Open Up Trading for Dogecoin Rival SHIB
Coinbase customers can begin transferring those three tokens to the platform.
According to the blog post, “Once sufficient supply of CHZ, KEEP and SHIB is established on the platform, trading on our CHZ-USD, CHZ-EUR, CHZ-GBP, CHZ-USDT, KEEP-USD, SHIB-USD and SHIB-USDT order books will launch in three phases, post-only, limit-only and full trading.”
And that market cap appears to be going up. Propelled by the listing, the token has risen in price by 33% in the last day, to reach $0.00000925.
That’s far below its all-time high of $0.00003791 (note there’s one less zero) on November 7 of last year. Yet it’s a welcome boost, given that Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin nearly sunk the coin after giving 50 trillion SHIB to charity. The meme coin owners had gifted the wunderkind the tokens in hopes that he wouldn’t touch them, artificially decreasing the supply of the token while connecting the project to a respected developer.
Now, the project may not need a respected developer. It’s got Coinbase, the only publicly listed crypto exchange in the U.S., to provide it some credibility.
