Coinbase CEO and co-founder Brian Armstrong on Monday said the goal of his cryptocurrency exchange, the largest in the US, is to list every crypto asset that is legally possible.
“Reminder about how Coinbase lists assets: our goal is to list *every* asset where it is legal to do so,” the executive said in a Twitter thread published to his 720,000 followers on Monday.
He followed this up by saying his firm does not offer opinions on the value of each asset. Investors should not take being listed on Coinbase as an endorsement.
Armstrong added that Coinbase is working on tools that will allow ratings and reviews so customers can share their views about specific assets. Listing of crypto assets, particularly meme tokens like dogecoin, has been seen as a sign of legitimacy in the cryptocurrency community.
In June, when Coinbase said it would list dogecoin, the meme token spiked in response. The company even announced plans to give away $1.2 million in dogecoin to encourage users to take advantage of its newest crypto trading option.
In 2017, Coinbase had four cryptocurrencies available to trade: bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, and bitcoin cash. Today, it has nearly 60 crypto assets, including stablecoins.
