Coinbase Pro Will Increase The Number Of GBP Trading Pairs

Bitcoin exchange Coinbase Pro announced the support of GBP trading pairs for ETC, ETH and LTC. According to David Farmer, the general manager of the exchange, new pairs will be available on Friday, September 7.

As Farmer has noted, for users from the UK it has become much easier, faster and cheaper to trade cryptocurrencies thanks to the support of bank payments using the fast payment system (FPS).

Coinbase Pro was the first cryptocurrency exchange to receive a bank account in the United Kingdom.

It is reported that the launch of new trading pairs is scheduled for September 7 at 09:00 BST and will be carried out in three steps:

1. Post-only (minimum 10 minutes). At this stage, traders will be able to place limited orders without matching.
2. Limit-only (minimum 10 minutes). In the second stage, the matching of limited orders will be available, but market orders will still remain unavailable.
3. Full trading. At the final stage, full trading of new pairs will be available, including limits and stop orders.
