Starting today, Solana (SOL), Chiliz (CHZ), and Keep Network (KEEP) are available on Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now trade, send, receive, or store SOL, CHZ, and KEEP in most Coinbase-supported regions, with the exceptions of CHZ and KEEP in Singapore as well as CHZ in New York State. Trading for these assets is also supported on Coinbase Pro.
Solana is a decentralized computing platform that uses SOL to pay for transactions. Solana aims to improve blockchain scalability by using a combination of proof of stake consensus and so-called proof of history. As a result, Solana claims to be able to support 50,000 transactions per second without sacrificing decentralization.
CHZ is an Ethereum token that powers Socios.com, a platform that lets users trade tokens to show their support for professional sports teams. The tokens on Socios.com — called Fan Tokens — make users eligible for rewards and promotions and can also be used to influence team decisions by popular voting on the Chiliz blockchain.
Keep Network (KEEP)
KEEP is an Ethereum token that powers the Keep Network, a platform that aims to bridge public blockchains and private data. One of Keep Network’s first products is an Ethereum token that represents 1 Bitcoin, called tBTC. Keep Network enables users to deposit Bitcoin and redeem tokenized tBTC, which can then be used in the Ethereum ecosystem without centralized intermediaries.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. We announced a process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the addition of more cryptocurrencies. We are also investing in new tools to help people understand and explore cryptocurrencies. We launched informational asset pages (see SOL, CHZ , and KEEP), as well as a new section of the Coinbase website to answer common questions about crypto.
Customers can sign up for a Coinbase account here to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store SOL, CHZ, and KEEP today.
