XLM Scores Higher – Overtook BNB
At the moment, XLM is surging and overtook Binance coin (BNB) to capture 7th spot. Observers are yet to identify the reason behind sudden growth in Stellar’s value, which is 6.32 percent within a couple of hours – however, it is possibly linked to Coinbase Pro’s announcement of supporting Stellar Lumens (XLM).
At one stage, XLM cryptocurrency is jumped 6.32 percent in just 24 hours, as the other major crypto assets such as BTC, ETH, LTC, faltered. At the time of reporting, Stellar value is sitting at US$0.109
As far as the XLM on Coinbase Pro is concerned – it begins with three cryptocurrency’s pairs, particularly, XLM/USD, XLM/EUR, and XLM/BTC. The blog reads that;
“Once sufficient supply of XLM is established on the platform, trading on the XLM/USD, XLM/EUR, and XLM/BTC order books will start in phases, beginning with post-only mode and proceeding to full trading should our metrics for a healthy market be met,”
At the moment, XLM is not available on Coinbase.com and its mobile app, there will be a separate announcement once the exchange-listed it.
However, the latest release is a result of an earlier announcement of Coinbase that says it will support 30 cryptocurrencies. Until now, Coinbase began supporting Loom Network, XRP, Golem Network, Civic, DistrictOx, Loom Network, Zilliqa, Decentraland, and Dai.
