As reported by U.Today, Coinbase Pro initially announced that it would list the SHIB token in mid-June, just weeks after the highly anticipated addition of Dogecoin. However, the exchange then delayed its launch due to "technical issues."    

SHIB surged more than 30 percent on the Binance exchange because of the Coinbase news.

The listing comes amid growing regulatory pressure. Earlier today, Coinbase revealed that it could be sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over a yet-to-be-launched lending product.
