Coinbase to Add Dogecoin in Next 6-8 Weeks

1 Mins read

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong declared on Thursday that the company would add the popular novelty cryptocurrency Dogecoin in the near future.

“We plan to list Doge in the next six to eight weeks,” said Armstrong on an earnings call following the company’s formal release of its first quarter earnings.

The Doge announcement came in response to a query from a crypto user named Jordi Y who had asked about it on a Reddit-style forum where Coinbase had solicited questions from its investors. The forum invited others to “upvote” others’ questions, and the Doge one proved most popular.

The Doge coin has been on a roller-coaster ride of late, peaking shortly before Tesla CEO Elon Musk discussed it on last weekend’s Saturday Night Live, but it has slumped badly since.

On the call, Armstrong also noted that the crypto economy is adding “more and more assets” and likened the process of adding new cryptocurrencies to process of adding apps to an app store.

Another popular question on the forum concerned Coinbase’s view of decentralized exchanges. Armstrong stated the company was “very excited” about so-called Defi, but offered few details about Coinbase’s specific strategy.

In response to a question on the forum about Coinbase’s fees, which are higher than some exchanges, CFO Alesia Haas said “We’re not trying to win on fees. We’re not trying to compete on fees. We’re competing on being the most trusted.”

Thursday’s earnings call was highly unusual in that companies typically read from a prepared script and then solicit calls from Wall Street analysts. Coinbase’s approach—first soliciting questions posted on a public forum—is novel, but consistent with Armstrong’s self-proclaimed quest to democratize finance.

The company also stated it would take questions from analysts. This story will be updated with further details.
