Coinbase will support Internet Computer Governance Token
Coinbase decided to support ICP tokens across all Coinbase Pro jurisdictions except New York State. The biggest U.S.-based crypto exchange platform has announced that it plans to list the Internet Computer (ICP) governance token in its blog post. The DFINITY Foundation developed ICP.
Coinbase stated that ICP is not available on the Internet Computer network yet. Still, the company promised to notify its followers on Twitter when the token becomes open to the public.
Dominic Williams, the founder and chief scientist at DFINITY Foundation, revealed details about the Internet Computer. He stated that the Internet Computer signifies the third major innovation in blockchain after BTC and ETH.
Williams also explained that the Internet Computer is a scientific achievement. DFINITY Foundation orchestrated it across several research centers. According to the chief scientist, the Internet Computer represents unprecedented R&D effort over the past years. The research centers that participated in the project are in Zurich, Tokyo, San Francisco, Palo Alto, including remote teams in the UK and Germany.
The DFINITY Foundation’s sole purpose is to relentlessly expand the capabilities of a public blockchain and its decentralized ecosystem. The company plans to use advanced computer science and cryptography to achieve that goal, thus making blockchain the platform of choice upon which users can reimagine all their systems and services.
The DFINITY Genesis launch is scheduled for the 7th of May. The launch will give developers and consumers various opportunities as it debuts with the Internet Computer project. The Internet Computer has a faster network speed than what Ethereum offers currently.
