Shortly after Coinbase announced its decision to explore five coins before deciding on which to adopt while failing to insert Ripple (XRP) into the list, to see what the cryptocurrency community may be feeling, CNBC’s Fast Money kick-started a pool on which of the coins they think is needed by Coinbase users. Ripple, Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA), and ZCash (ZEC), were listed in the poll.
Surprisingly, the pool with over 52,000 participants, had Ripple atop with 34% while ZCash had 30%. The rest, Cardano and Stellar had 25% and 11% respectively.
To Coinbase, the purpose of the announcement is to make the company transparent with their customers and to avoid internal trade which the exchange was earlier accused of.
However, with the outcome of this pool, Coinbase customers seem unsatisfied with the exchange’s decision to render Ripple insignificant.
Meanwhile, Ripple enthusiasts are seeing hope in SBIVC, a Ripple-centric cryptocurrency exchange which will begin full work any moment from now.
With this pool, however, there is a possibility that Coinbase retracts its decision, and put Ripple as a significant coin the exchange requires.
