EOS, the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, has just been listed on Coinbase. Prior to that, the ‘Ethereum killer’ had been already added to Coinbase Pro.
EOS is launching at https://t.co/iQARfi557o and in the iOS and Android apps within the next 15 minutes. You may need to update your app to properly buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store EOS. We will update when EOS is fully live. https://t.co/sh8XmE1Wit— Coinbase (@coinbase) May 30, 2019
From Coinbase Pro to Coinbase
In its statement, the leading US cryptocurrency exchange claims that the coin will be available in most of its supported jurisdictions (save for the UK and the state of New York).
Those who want to seamlessly trade EOS are encouraged to upgrade their Android or iOS app. The coin was supposed to go live 15 minutes after the initial announcement.
On Apr. 9, as reported by U.Today, EOS was listed on Coinbase’s professional exchange Coinbase Pro along with other altcoins that the San Francisco-based trading platform had been previously exploring.
If to exclude Binance Coin, all top 10 altcoins can now be found on Coinbase.
Testing ‘Coinbase effect’
The Coinbase Pro listing didn’t produce any impact on the coin’s price. It remains to be seen whether the so-called ‘Coinbase effect’ will stand the test this time now that EOS is now available on the biggest exchange in America.
For instance, XRP enjoyed a solid pump after being embraced by Coinbase.
At the time of writing, the EOS price is sitting at $7.90 after dipping by 2.49 percent over the last 24 hours, according to CMC data.
