Updated on Wednesday June 16th: We are experiencing technical issues that will temporarily delay the launch of SHIB on Coinbase Pro. At this time we are disabling deposits of SHIB; withdrawals are still available. We will provide an updated timeline for restoring deposits & enabling trading as soon as possible.
Starting Today Tuesday June 15, transfer CHZ, KEEP and SHIB into your Coinbase Pro account ahead of trading. Support for CHZ, KEEP and SHIB will generally be available in Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions with the exception of Singapore. CHZ and SHIB will not be available to New York residents. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT) Thursday June 17, if liquidity conditions are met.
One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. Per the terms of our listing process, we anticipate supporting more assets that meet our standards over time. Most recently we have added trading support for Polkadot (DOT), Gitcoin (GTC), Enzyme Token (MLN), Amp (AMP), Dogecoin (DOGE), Internet Computer (ICP), Cartesi (CTSI), iExec (RLC), Mirror Protocol (MIR), Tellor (TRB), Tether (USDT), Ampleforth Governance Token (FORTH),1inch (1INCH), Enjin Coin (ENJ), NKN (NKN), Origin Token (OGN), Ankr (ANKR) Curve DAO Token (CRV), Storj (STORJ), Cardano (ADA), SushiSwap (SUSHI), Polygon (MATIC), & SKALE (SKL), along with supporting additional order books. Coinbase continues to explore support for new digital assets.
Starting immediately, we will begin accepting inbound transfers of CHZ, KEEP and SHIB to Coinbase Pro. Trading will begin on or after 9am Pacific Time (PT) Thursday June 17, if liquidity conditions are met.
Once sufficient supply of CHZ, KEEP and SHIB is established on the platform, trading on our CHZ-USD, CHZ-EUR, CHZ-GBP, CHZ-USDT, KEEP-USD, SHIB-USD and SHIB-USDT order books will launch in three phases, post-only, limit-only and full trading. If at any point one of the new order books does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period of time or suspend trading as per our Trading Rules.
We will publish tweets from our Coinbase Pro Twitter account as each order book moves through the phases.
Chiliz (CHZ): CHZ is an Ethereum token that powers Socios.com, a platform that lets users trade tokens to show their support for professional sports teams. The tokens on Socios.com — called Fan Tokens — make users eligible for rewards and promotions and can also be used to influence team decisions by popular voting on the Chiliz blockchain.
Keep Network (KEEP): KEEP is an Ethereum token that powers the Keep Network, a platform that aims to bridge public blockchains and private data. One of Keep Network’s first products is an Ethereum token that represents 1 Bitcoin, called tBTC. Keep Network enables users to deposit Bitcoin and redeem tokenized tBTC, which can then be used in the Ethereum ecosystem without centralized intermediaries.
Shiba Inu (SHIB): Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a token that aspires to be an Ethereum-based alternative to Dogecoin (DOGE), the popular memecoin. Unlike Bitcoin, which is designed to be scarce, SHIB is intentionally abundant — with a circulating supply of one quadrillion. The Shiba Inu Token ecosystem supports projects such as an NFT art incubator and the development of a decentralized exchange called Shibaswap.
CHZ, KEEP and SHIB are not yet available on Coinbase.com or via our Consumer mobile apps. We will make a separate announcement if and when this support is added.
