The new expansion plan of Coinbase is in today’s blockchain news after announcing the launch of six additional European markets.
The leading crypto exchanges hope to push the boundaries in the global market. Coinbase will expand its services into to new markets that include Andorra, Gibraltar, Lithuania, Iceland, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
Coinbase announced their plan on Thursday on their official blog by saying that after expanding to the six new areas, it will officially service 33 countries across the planet.
The major exchange was launched in 2012 and has set the postulates for the entire crypto sector over the past couple of years. This decision only shows that Coinbase is planning on huge things in 2019 while trying to make the process of buying and selling cryptocurrencies much easier.
‘’New customers in these markets will be able to make full use of Coinbase.com and our iOS and Android apps, allowing them to buy and sell cryptocurrencies on the Coinbase platform for the very first time. We also hope to make Coinbase Pro and Prime available in these regions over time.’’
The company will also take other measures to expand rapidly into other regions and even adding new crypto assets on the platform so all the customers will be satisfied.
Just a few days ago, Coinbase also noted that they started offering crypto to crypto conversions for all US customers in order to make the process of converting cryptocurrencies simple.
By expanding across Europe, these conversion features will become a major element of the international market.
Coinbase Closes Its Bundle Product After 8 Months On The Market
‘’Coinbase Bundle purchases have been deprecated, as such all assets purchased in the Conibase Bundle have been redistributed to their respective individual asset wallets.’’Coinbase Bundles were meant to provide the investors with a diversified digital asset portfolio which could be dollar-cost averaged by using the same tactic that the investors use in traditional asset classes. Investors could also spend up to $25 to purchase a bundle of five cryptocurrencies which were easily balanced in proportion to their own market cap. For example, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Ethereum, and Bitcoin comprised each bundle. In a combination with Coinbase Learn and Asset Pages, the bundles were meant to look good for crypto newbies that are aiming for the dollar cost average into some long positions without having to conduct a huge amount of technical analysis. When it was first introduced in 2018 in September, Coinbase noted:
‘’The vision of an open financial system depends on people’s ability to understand, explore, and choose cryptocurrencies. We expect that millions of people will make their first cryptocurrency purchase in the coming years. But all too often, getting started can be overwhelming for people learning about crypto for the first time.’’Now, after 8 months, Coinbase closes the Bundle project and this decision is bound to draw some criticism but maybe pleasure as well from those who dislike the company. It could be a very smart move to bin the product since the altcoins have been crashing recently as bitcoin corrected and managed to get on the rallying track. As noted in the latest cryptocurrency news, the cancellation of the Coinbase Bundle product could add some credibility to the argument that the diversification does not always work for crypto despite the sector being too volatile or calm.
Global Accounting Firm KPMG Partners With Microsoft To Develop Blockchain
“While we will be able to consume more data more quickly and across more locations than ever before in this next wave of telecom advancement, it is becoming increasingly complex for telecom companies to track and settle interchange fees.”The blockchain being piloted by KMPG, Microsoft and R3 is definitely a hot topic and aims to reduce the future costs, number of disputes and time involved in telecom settlements caused by “billions of mobile interactions flow[ing] through hundreds of connected networks managed by dozens of customers and suppliers.” However, it is not just future costs that the business partnership wants to solve. On the table are also current inefficiencies in the markets such as settlements and reconciliations which are currently handled manually and can take a month to be completed, Ghosh said. Currently, he said, a huge amount of data is generated around mobile devices. However, it goes a long way to know the conditions of a user's contract and their billing information - which must be authenticated by at least two parties if cross-service operations occur. Before the blockchain initiative, the global accounting firm KMPG had advised telecom operators on capital-efficient deployment of 5G networks, cyber security, privacy and data protection - all of which was featured in our coming altcoin news.
