As the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase has been at the forefront of the digital asset industry since its launch in 2012. In recent years, the exchange has increasingly expanded its services to meet the growing demand for crypto assets.
One area that Coinbase has been exploring is the initial coin offering (ICO) market. However, as of yet, the exchange has not offered support for ICOs.
This may soon change, as a recent job listing on Coinbase’s website suggests that the company is interested in adding ICOs to its platform. The job posting, which was first spotted by The Block, is for an “ ICO Compliance Analyst.
” The role will be responsible for “overseeing compliance with legal and regulatory requirements surrounding ICOs.”.
This is not the first time that Coinbase has hinted at its interest in supporting ICOs. In March 2018, the exchange launched a new platform called Coinbase Ventures that invests in early-stage blockchain and cryptocurrency startUPS.
At the time, Coinbase said that it was interested in “helping to grow the crypto ecosystem” and that it would consider investing in projects that are “in line with our mission and values.
It is not clear if or when Coinbase will add support for ICOs on its platform. However, given the exchange’s interest in this area, it seems likely that we will see some movement on this front in the near future.
