Cryptocurrency, Coinbase–On the heels of a rumor by CNBC Crypto Trader Ran Neuner that Coinbase will soon announce its initial public offering, the U.S. based cryptocurrency exchange received some positive news in relation to last year’s accusation over insider trading.
In August 2017, Bitcoin Cash made its official hard fork from the original Bitcoin source code. For investors who kept their coins on exchanges such as Coinbase, the air drop of forked coins was not made immediately available. However, Coinbase promised investors that BCH would be supported by the exchange by the end of the year, which included the coins they were due at the time of the fork. However, Coinbase failed to specify a date for adding to the currency to the exchange–for obvious reasons surrounding a pump and dump–and lacked a clear protocol for adding new currencies.
