At the time of its launch, the coin’s price was already quite impressive, being twice as high as the price of Ethereum. By September 1st, the coin reached its ATH, becoming the most valuable coin in the history of the cryptocurrency sector.
Back in December 2017, Bitcoin made history by hitting $20,000 per coin. On September 1st, 2020, YFI outperformed it by becoming the most valuable coin ever, with a price of $33.981.
The performance clearly impressed Coinbase, which now intents to start a four-phase launch of the coin, paired against USD. The launch will start in three days, on Monday, September 14th.
Coinbase will start by accepting inbound transfers. However, as soon as the platform gets a functional YFI supply. official trading will be ready to commence. As mentioned, there will be four phrases, including transfer-only, post-only, limit-only, and full trading.
The significance of Coinbase listing
As mentioned, YFI has been doing extremely well in the last two months. However, getting listed on Coinbase will be extremely significant for any altcoin, and especially a DeFi one that has just seen such a meteoric rise.
Another reason why this is a big deal for YFI is the fact that its listing means that Coinbase doesn’t consider it a security. Coinbase has been extremely picky about the coins it lists, and any coin that does get on the exchange is almost certainly not a security.
Of course, Coinbase did recently start adding quite a few coins, and so YFI’s addition is not a unique development. Even so, this doesn’t reduce its importance, nor the importance of the token itself.
