A Coinbase Listing Has a Massive Effect on a Token’s Price

Being acquired by Coinbase can be one of the best things that can happen to crypto and blockchain developers, as the firm is a well-known institution in the crypto industry. The BRD token is one of the many coins that have surged tremendously after getting listed on the exchange. An example is the Voyager token (VGX), an ERC-20 that soared 44 percent overnight after being listed on Coinbase Pro.

Another clear example is CRO, Crypto.com’s utility token. Earlier this month, Crypto News Australia reported that the CRO token had rallied 30 percent after being listed on the exchange.
