We wanted to give our customers additional information about our process for adding new assets to our exchange. We are committed to being the most trusted and easy-to-use digital asset exchange and believe sharing this process with our customers is an essential part of building that trust.
A few months ago we released our Digital Asset Framework which highlights the factors we evaluate when considering which new assets to support. A committee of internal experts is responsible for determining whether and when new assets will be added to the platform in accordance with our framework. These individuals — and all employees at Coinbase — are subject to confidentiality and trading restrictions. We will only announce the addition of new assets via our blog post or other official channel.
As of the date of this statement, we have made no decision to add additional assets to our exchange. Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company.
