Coinbase Adds Polkadot Trading to Pro Platform

·1 min read

Coinbase’s professional trading platform has added DOT, the native currency of the Polkadot blockchain, the exchange said in a blog post Monday.

As of Monday, the token is available to transfer into Coinbase Pro accounts. Trading will begin on or after 9 a.m. PT Wednesday.

The exchange typically adds cryptocurrencies to its retail platform a few weeks after first listing them on the professional version, although that turned out not to be the case when it added dogecoin. Coinbase Pro currently supports 50 cryptocurrencies.
