On Tuesday, July 30, a number of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin and Tezos were on the rise. Of those crypto coins, Tezos (XTZ) saw a major price gain after news came from Coinbase. Bitcoin was up a day after it received some positive price speculation from a TV co-host.
According to a Cointelegraph report, the latest announcement is that Tezos will become available on the Coinbase Pro platform. XTZ was up 24 percent on the news at the time of Cointelegraph’s report, to a price of $1.24. It officially becomes available for Coinbase Pro on Monday, August 5. Tezos won’t be available on the Coinbase.com exchange or any of the associated mobile apps, but will be on Coinbase Pro.
At first, Coinbase Pro will offer only transfers of XTZ, followed by posting and limit trades. The final step will allow for full trading of the XTZ coin on the Coinbase Pro platform. All states will be eligible to have the option of trading XTZ except for the state of New York. See more details at Coinbase’s blog post here.
