EOS (EOS) is now available on Coinbase

Starting today, Coinbase supports EOS (EOS) at and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store EOS.

EOS will be available for customers in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the United Kingdom or the state of New York. Additional jurisdictions may be added at a later date.


EOS is a cryptocurrency designed to support large-scale decentralized applications. There are no fees to send or receive EOS. Instead, the protocol requires EOS to use resources like RAM, CPU, and network bandwidth. It also rewards the entities that run the network periodically with new EOS, effectively substituting inflation for transaction fees.

One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. In September, we announced a new process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the

DAI will be available for customers in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the state of New York.

According to the DAI whitepaper, DAI is a decentralized stablecoin running on Ethereum that was designed with a goal of maintaining a target value of approximately US$1.00.

The relevant whitepapers explain that MKR and DAI tokens form a paired set of assets in which MKR provides governance, and DAI is a decentralized, collateral-backed stablecoin.

One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. With the announcement of our

What the technology hype cycle tells us about the future of crypto

Coinbase VP of Engineering shares his perspective on where we are in the crypto lifecycle, drawing from his experience leading AWS Lambda

One of the interesting opportunities I’ve enjoyed in my career is getting a ringside seat to innovative technologies that have changed the world. Being at companies that have a huge impact on their industry, including Microsoft, Amazon, and now Coinbase, means I get to experience and work on disruptive technologies every day. One particular aspect of that is experiencing the Hype Cycle up close and personal multiple times. At Amazon I got to see the entire lifecycle of a service — from writing the initial business plan for AWS Lambda to launching it at re:Invent to ultimately building it into one of the largest enterprise-grade cloud businesses on the planet. As VP of Engineering at Coinbase, I’m struck by some of the parallels between Serverless computing and crypto as they go through
