Popular US-based cryptocurrency exchange has listed Dash on its professional trading platform, Coinbase Pro. Following the expiration of an exploration period, Coinbase began accepting Dash deposits on Monday, Sept 16 ahead of full trading which resumed the next day. Dash is now available to trade on the DASH/USD and DASH/BTC pairs.

It is also worth stating that the listing on Coinbase Pro is not a global feature. Dash will be available to trade in all Coinbase’s supported jurisdiction, with the exception of the UK and New York State. Coinbase will not also support Dash’s optional speed and privacy features at the moment.

Coinbase had earlier announced in August that it will be exploring the addition of eight new digital assets - Algorand, Cosmos, Dash, Decred, Matic, Harmony, Ontology, and Waves. Dash is the first crypto to get approval on the list.

Coinbase Pro has over 30 million users and is one of the largest crypto exchanges by volume. Its popularity is definitely a plus to the Dash ecosystem. According to Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group, "the listing on Coinbase Pro will meaningfully expand access to Dash in a significant number of countries."

As at press time, the price of Dash was up by almost 5% - $97, the highest gainer on a list comprising of the top 40 coins on CoinMarketCap.
