“Our statement of 4 January 2018 and remains valid: we have not yet made any decisions about adding new assets on GDAX or Coinbase. Any statements that say otherwise are false and not authorized by the company”, — stated in the message.
For the first time rumors about adding XRP came after the news that chief operating officer and President of Coinbase, Asif Hirji in conjunction with the Executive Director of Ripple brad Garlinghouse will be guests of the special edition of the program ‘Fast Money’ on CNBC. Despite the absence of any other information, after the announcement of the course, XRP went up and crossed the mark of $1.
In addition, it is still even unclear whether there will be, Hirji and Arlinghaus in the Studio together or each will be assigned its own segment.
We will remind, the day before the ex-Manager of the LinkedIn Emily Choi has been Vice-President of Coinbase, and at the end of last year, the President and chief operating officer of the site was a former Advisor to Andreessen Horowitz Asif, Hirji.
