Gaining the increased momentum from the end of August and the beginning of September due to the fact that the dev team was preparing a Dogethereum bridge demo, the team is once again showing up with some great news for DOGE community.
As per the most recent interview that one of the core members of the dev team gave several days ago, Ross Nicoll claims that the dev team is preparing a submission for getting Dogecoin listed on Coinbase.
During the last week, Coinbase came up with big news for the blockchain space after providing a decent boost for Ethereum Classic when it announced the listing for this currency, stating that as of the moment of the announcement, Coinbase exchange will be receiving submissions for listings.
This initiative was imagined in a way to provide more exposure for currencies across the market, since the exchange currently only has several listed crypto assets, which includes Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH).
All of the listed currencies had to go through a significant portion of tests before being finally and officially listed on the exchange, mailing Coinbase listings a rather exclusive occasion.
This tradition is about to change, however without excluding the integral tests prior to finalizing listings, as Coinbase announced that they will be receiving submissions for listings from all coins.
According to Ross Nicoll, DOGE is already compiling its listing submission.
Dogecoin Dev Team is Compiling a Submission for Listing on Coinbase
In one of the most recent announcements that came from Coinbase representatives during the last week, the exchange stated that they will as of immediately accept submissions for listings from dev teams.
In one of the latest interviews that one of the portals focused on blockchain news, Blokt, conducted with Ross Nicoll, Nicoll stated that the team is preparing their submission for getting a listing on Coinbase for Dogecoin.
When asked about what Dogecoin actually represents, Nicoll replied that DOGE makes up for one of the long runners in the market since the currency was issued back in 2013, rising in a supportive and fun community.
Moreover, regarding the case of compiling the submission for listing on Coinbase, Nicoll said that the team is hoping to get the green light from the exchange, also addressing the case of the active poll on the matter of getting Dogecoin to Amazon.
Regarding Amazon/DOGE relations, Ross Nicoll stated that Amazon never approached Dogecoin dev team on that matter, which consequently makes this relation non-existent for now. But in case Amazon would approach the DOGE team, Nicoll stated that they would gladly discuss the addition of DOGE to Amazon.
Ross Nicoll on the Future of Dogecoin
In his interview for the portal, Nicoll stated when asked about the future of Dogecoin, that he sees DOGE as a well-established currency of the Internet in five years from now, also adding that he would love to see DOGE become an integral part of Ethereum ecosystem.
When it comes to new updates and projects, besides from working on Dogethereum bridge, the dev team is also focused on releasing the client version 1.14, as they have already started working on the next client, version 1.16.
Although 1.14 client is almost ready to be released, the next version 1.16 requires further testing before being shipped. Additionally, the team is looking to find solutions for creating a bridge that would be more advanced in the terms reducing operator nodes.
AS far as the Dogethereum bridge concerned, the bounty that was paid back in 2015 to enable the two-way transfer across the bridge is being developed only now with the first demo being live-tested on September 5th, by Oscar Guindzberg, who is the head of the team working on Dogethereum bridge. Nicoll stated that there should be some improvements and updates already taking place as Oscar’s team should very soon deliver the mentioned updates in form of efficiency and functionality improvements.
Although DOGE is seen dropping against the fiat on October 9th by merely touching 0%, Dogecoin is still positioned on the top 20 list with the further inspiration of progressing up towards the top with a faithful and supportive community that believes in the future of the coin that was once considered a “joke”.
