Amidst the downtrend in the crypto-market lately, Coinbase, the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States has decided to list Basic Coin Token (BAT) to its ‘Pro’ platform.

Coinbase decision to add BAT Tokens to Coinbase Pro will allow BAT/USD trades very soon but only when there is enough liquidity on the digital asset, but deposits are already available on the platform. Coinbase also announced that all the trading features concerning Basic Attention Token would be available in all areas, besides residents in New York. It is important to know that BAT Tokens are not available yet on the official Coinbase website, but we may see the listing before the year comes to an end.

Here is a full statement by the exchange:

After 1 pm PT on Friday, November 2, we will begin accepting inbound transfers of Basic Attention Token (BAT) to Coinbase Pro. We will accept deposits for at least 12 hours prior to enabling trading. Once sufficient liquidity is established, trading on the BAT/USDC order book will start. Users may convert their USD to USDC with one click within the Pro interface as described here

The exchange continued saying,

“BAT trading will be accessible for users in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the state of New York. Please also note that BAT is not yet available at Coinbase.com or in our iOS and Android apps. We will make a separate announcement when that occurs.”

Undoubtedly, Basic Coin Token (BAT) is a top-notch cryptocurrency from the newly-formed BRAVE – a web browser. It is also a cryptocurrency based on Ethereum’s protocol; during BAT’s ICO launch, it was recorded that the blockchain project collected more than $35 million in thirty seconds. Mind-boggling.

According to a post by Coinbase on its blog, BAT will be released in 4 stages: transfer only, post only, limit only, and full-trading. As the name suggests, the full-trading stage will offer limitless trading for traders and BAT investors, including stop-orders. Coinbase does not allow retail trading on its platform and iOS and Android applications.

The Surge in Basic Attention Token (BAT) Price

After the Coinbase statement concerning the BAT listing on Coinbase Pro, the value of Basic Attention Token rose from $0.26 to $0.345 in no time, recording an increase of more than 30 percent within 20 minutes on November 2nd.

At the time of writing, Basic Attention Token has settled at $0.32 price level. BAT looks to replicate Ox when it was featured on Coinbase Pro last month as the cryptocurrency has surged by more than 7 percent in the last 24 hours.

Nevertheless, lots of questions have been asked by traders on which cryptocurrency will be next to be listed. Notable cryptocurrencies with great prospects have been tipped to be listed very soon after Basic Attention Toen (BAT). It is necessary to know that cryptocurrencies such as Cardano (ADA) and Stellar (XLM) have been the most-talked-about to be listed on the platform shortly.

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…
