The announcement comes just days after the US exchange added Maker’s DAI stablecoin to its arsenal of tradable cryptocurrencies. If you look at the past few months, Coinbase seems to be on some sort of token listing tour that has added support for multiple cryptocurrencies.

It is also worth highlighting the changing attitude of Coinbase towards cryptocurrencies, which are not necessarily related to Bitcoin. A fair guess could be that market demand pressures coupled with industry rival Binance’s extensive cryptocurrency catalog may have encouraged Coinbase to be more open to cryptocurrencies with various utilities.

The exchange also seems to be steadily diversifying its business into different verticals of the cryptocurrency industry.

As reported by BTCManager On May 17, 2019, reports surfaced that Coinbase is considering acquiring Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency custodian company Xapo. to acquire for about $ 50 million. The decision to enter the digital asset custody market makes strategic sense as it would serve as a hedge against the volatile price fluctuations of cryptocurrencies.
