It appears that the Coinbase Effect is in full swing.
An hour ago, the leading cryptocurrency exchange announced that it will be listing a new coin on its professional trading platform, Coinbase Pro. The cryptocurrency it listed is Numeraire (NMR), a popular altcoin project from 2017, and it has surged over 100% since the announcement:
“On Monday, August 17, transfer NMR into your Coinbase Pro account ahead of trading. Support for NMR will be available in all Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions, with the exception of New York State. Per previous launches, transfers will open during business hours, Pacific time.”
