Keep those Altcoins, better yet, DeFi Tokens Coming
Coinbase, much like any other exchanges in the crypto space, has taken to list altcoins, and lately to capture the ongoing decentralized finance craze, DeFi tokens as well.
Celo (CGLD), Numeraire (NMR), Band (BAND), Compound (COMP), Maker (MKR), and OmiseGo (OMG) have been recent additions along with supporting additional European and UK order books.
Just this week, UMA-USD and UMA-BTC order books got into a full-trading mode.
Today, UMA is launching at Coinbase.com and its iOS and Android apps, which means users can buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store UMA on the platform.
This Ethereum-based open-source protocol allows developers to design and create their own synthetic assets and financial contracts with the goal of creating universal market access (UMA).
A DeFi token with a market cap of $906 million that sits at 25th spot, UMA has also started gaining momentum as it trades at 16.81% with nearly 4% gains.
