Starting Today, Wednesday September 29, transfer AVAX into your Coinbase Pro account ahead of trading. Support for AVAX will generally be available in Coinbase’s supported jurisdictions with certain exceptions as indicated in each asset page here. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT) Thursday September 30, if liquidity conditions are met.
Please note: Coinbase Pro only supports C-Chain Avalanche (AVAX) tokens. C-chain Avalanche addresses start with ‘0x’. Sending Avalanche on P-chain or X-chain or any other assets to a Coinbase Pro wallet will result in permanent loss.
One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. Per the terms of our listing process, we anticipate supporting more assets that meet our standards over time. Most recently we have added trading support for Adventure Gold (AGLD), Braintrust (BTRST), Rari Governance Token (RGT) and XYO Network (XYO), DerivaDAO (DDX), DFI.money (YFII), Radicle (RAD), COTI (COTI), Axie Infinity (AXS), Request (REQ), TrueFi (TRU), Wrapped Luna (WLUNA), Harvest Finance (FARM) Fetch.ai (FET) Paxos Standard (PAX) and Polymath Network (POLY), Clover Finance (CLV), Mask Network (MASK), and Rally (RLY).
Starting Today, Wednesday September 29, we will begin accepting inbound transfers of AVAX to Coinbase Pro. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT) Thursday September 30, if liquidity conditions are met.
Once sufficient supply of AVAX is established on the platform, trading on our AVAX-USD, AVAX-USDT and AVAX-EUR order books will launch in three phases, post-only, limit-only and full trading. If at any point one of the new order books does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period of time or suspend trading as per our Trading Rules.
We will publish tweets from our Coinbase Pro Twitter account as each order book moves through the phases.
Avalanche (AVAX) describes itself as an open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications. AVAX is used to pay transaction fees and can be staked to secure the network. Avalanche is compatible with Solidity, Ethereum’s programming language, and can be used to deploy custom private or public blockchains as “subnets.”
AVAX is not yet available on Coinbase.com or via our Consumer mobile apps. We will make a separate announcement if and when this support is added.
You can sign up for a Coinbase Pro account here to start trading. For more information on trading AVAX on Coinbase Pro, visit our support page.
