Coinbase Is Officially Adding Support for Basic Attention Token (BAT)

On November 2, 2018, Coinbase announced that it would be integrating support for Basic Attention Token (BAT), an ERC-20 token that is designed to work out-of-the-box with the privacy-centric Brave Browser, on CoinbasePro.

BAT will initially trade against USD Coin (USDC), a stablecoin that Coinbase developed with Circle Ltd. and recently added to its platforms. The new offering is not available on Coinbase’s primary platform, and the company said it would make a separate announcement when this occurs.

The offering is being integrated on Coinbase Pro in the following order of stages: “Transfer-only,” “Post-only,” “Limit-only” and finally a “Full trading” stage.

“If at any point the BAT/USDC order book 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. Any other BAT order books we launch will also go through the same stages,” according to a Coinbase blog post.

“We will accept deposits for at least 12 hours prior to enabling trading. Once sufficient liquidity is established, trading on the BAT/USDC order book will start … BAT trading will be accessible for users in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the state of New York,” the Coinbase blog post continued.

The newly added token is the latest in a list of cryptocurrencies that Coinbase said it was “exploring” back in July of 2018, and it comes on the heels of Coinbase’s listing ZRX last month.
