Coinbase Deflects Rumors of Ripple Integration
07 January 2018, 09:10 | Lionel James
"As per the date of this statement, the company has not made any decision to add any additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase".
Recent rumors suggested that Coinbase was considering adding the cryptocurrency to the platform, which would give users the chance to buy and sell the asset.
The same was confirmed in a tweet on Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong's feed.
The company in a blog post said that it will follow the digital asset framework it released a few months ago highlighting the criteria for adding new digital assets to its exchanges. Coinbase's statement is likely an attempt to quell the mounting speculation on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.
The astounding surge in bitcoin's price has been all over the news as of late, with the cryptocurrency now being traded on the CBOE exchange in Chicago.
And though XRP may be cheap, and though Ethereum has a price of around $1000 dollars, XRP has the second highest market cap after bitcoin.
Ripple, which created and maintains the blockchain for its XRP cryptocurrency, has been in the spotlight since December as the digital coin has skyrocketed over 37,000% in value. This was the time when Ripple's market cap surged and reached a gigantic total of over $100 Billion. However, its spot at number 2 on the list of the world's largest cryptocurrencies is still intact. Still, though Ripple needs a lot of stars to align to become a major currency player used by big banks, one analyst writes for Medium that he expects the company to keep doing well, since "this is crypto, and everyone in the industry is now slinging crack crypto cocaine to retail addicts".
This communication came during a period when there were rumors that Coinbase was about to add Ripple to its platform.
