The Coinbase Pro general manager published a blog post in which he states that the platform plans to launch GBP against ETH, BCH, ETC and LTC. The GBP/BTC pair is already available.

First, the new pairs will go through the post-only stage, then a limit-only phase will be used. Only after those two full packages of trading services will be offered to customers.

The new pairs will be launched on Friday, Sept. 7.

Earlier this month, the exchange implemented withdrawals and deposits for the pound Sterling through the Faster Payment Scheme. Before that, trades took up to several days, since GBP had to be converted into EUR first.
