Coinbase unveils 'Asset Hub' for digital asset issuers that want to list their tokens


Coinbase is launching a new service for digital asset issuers that seek a listing on the biggest U.S.-based crypto exchange.

Dubbed the Asset Hub, Coinbase's service is "a simple, streamlined product for issuers to list their assets and do business with Coinbase," the company's chief product officer, Surojit Chatterjee, wrote in a blog post published Thursday.

A screenshot included in the blog post outlines issuers can use the Hub to connect with Coinbase's listings team for potential inclusion. Chatterjee wrote that "[o]ur directive is to list every compliant asset possible" but later stressed: "Issuers may be subject to regulatory approval in some jurisdictions and we therefore cannot guarantee whether or when any asset will be approved."

The launch comes nearly a month after Coinbase went public with its plans for some kind of public stock offering. The U.S. crypto exchange said December 17 that it submitted a confidential S-1 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
