Starting Today, Wednesday August 11, we will begin accepting inbound transfers of AXS, REQ, TRU and WLUNA to Coinbase Pro. Trading will begin on or after 9AM Pacific Time (PT), Thursday August 12 if liquidity conditions are met.
Once sufficient supply of AXS, REQ, TRU and WLUNA is established on the platform, trading on our AXS-USD, AXS-USDT, AXS-EUR, AXS-BTC, REQ-USD, REQ-USDT, REQ-BTC, REQ-EUR, REQ-GBP, TRU-USD, TRU-USDT, TRU-EUR, TRU-BTC, WLUNA-USD, WLUNA-USDT, WLUNA-EUR, WLUNA-BTC and WLUNA-GBP 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.
Axie Infinity (AXS) is an Ethereum token that powers Axie Infinity, a blockchain-based game where players can battle, collect, and build a digital kingdom for their pets. AXS holders can claim rewards for staking their tokens, playing the game, and participating in key governance votes.
Request (REQ) is an Ethereum token that powers the Request Network, a protocol for creating and requesting payments. Transactions on Request Network are immutably recorded and requests are processed without an intermediary.
TrueFi (TRU) is an Ethereum token that powers TrueFi, a decentralized finance protocol for uncollateralized lending using on-chain credit scores. TRU can be used for staking (i.e. to approve or reject new loans) and governance on the TrueFi protocol.
Wrapped Luna (WLUNA) is an Ethereum token that’s intended to represent Terra (LUNA) on the Ethereum blockchain. It is not LUNA, but rather a separate ERC-20 token that’s designed to track LUNA’s value. WLUNA was created to allow LUNA holders to trade, hold, and participate in decentralized finance (“DeFi”) apps on Ethereum. Through a WLUNA partner, 1 LUNA can be exchanged for 1 WLUNA, and vice-versa.
AXS, REQ, TRU and WLUNA are 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 AXS, REQ, TRU and WLUNA on Coinbase Pro, visit our support page.
