Starting today, Gitcoin (GTC), Enzyme (MLN) and Amp (AMP) are available on Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now trade, send, receive, or store GTC, MLN and AMP in all Coinbase-supported regions, with the exception of GTC in New York State. GTC, MLN and AMP will not be supported in Singapore. Trading for these assets is also supported on Coinbase Pro.
Gitcoin (GTC) is an Ethereum token that enables community governance of the Gitcoin platform. The platform is designed to fund and coordinate open source development by novel means such as quadratic funding. As of June 2021, Gitcoin has facilitated over $21 million in grants and bounties for open source developers.
MLN is an Ethereum token that powers Enzyme (formerly known as Melon Protocol), a protocol that aims to facilitate on-chain asset management for the DeFi ecosystem. MLN allows users to build, share, and explore DeFi investment strategies (called “vaults”) while filtering by historical performance and risk profiles. MLN is used to pay for various functions throughout the vault creation process and investment lifecycle.
Amp is an Ethereum token that aims to “collateralize payments on the Flexa Network, making them instant and secure.” If a BTC or ETH payment fails due to unconfirmed or long transaction times “the Amp collateral can instead be liquidated to cover losses” while the vendor receives payment in fiat, potentially providing greater assurances to both parties.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. We announced a process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the addition of more cryptocurrencies. We are also investing in new tools to help people understand and explore cryptocurrencies. We launched informational asset pages (see GTC, MLN, and AMP), as well as a new section of the Coinbase website to answer common questions about crypto.
Customers can sign up for a Coinbase account here to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store GTC, MLN and AMP today.
