Coinbase has announced the possible addition of 17 new cryptocurrencies to its current line up.

from the exchange, Coinbase is exploring the addition of avalanche, celo, chia, coda, dfinity, filecoin, handshake, kadena, mobilecoin, NEAR, nervos, oasis, orchid, polkadot, solana, spacemesh, and telegram.

Some of those coins, including telegram, are not yet live.

As of now, Coinbase’s non-pro exchange lists bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, ethereum classic, USD coin, XRP, stellar, zcash, 0x, litecoin, and the basic attention token.

Earlier this week, cryptocurrency dash was added to Coinbase Pro following an investigative period.

Coinbase revised its listing criteria a year ago, stating “listing announcements will become more frequent.” The 17 new cryptos follow up on eight considerations from last month. Of the eight, only two—algorand and dash—were added to Coinbase Pro.

Even if added, cryptocurrency listings are dependent on jurisdictional compliance.
