Astar Hub Hints Towards Coinbase Listing

On April 8th, the Twitter account Astar_Hub posted this tweet:

In picture they shared you can clearly see “C Ventures”, this stands for Coinbase Ventures. What Astar Hub is getting at is they think a Coinbase listing could be coming up since Coinbase is listed as a “Backer” of Astar. This could potentially happen, but there are many reasons why Coinbase would back a cryptocurrency but end up not listing them. In other words, no one knows if Coinbase will list Astar until it happens.

Astar Hits $1,700,000,000 TVL

On April 9th, the official Astar Network Twitter posted this tweet:

This is an astounding accomplishment for Astar, and it’s even more impressive that they own 58% of the total value locked in all of Dotsama. This can only mean good things for Astar and their future in the crypto space.

USDC From Polygon To Astar

On April 8th, the official Astar Network Twitter put out this tweet:

It may not be breaking news, but it definitely will be news to most people. I, for one, did not know that you could transfer USDC from the Polygon Network to the Astar Network. This is a step in the right direction as more and more tokens build bridges that become cheaper and cheaper. No one likes having crypto in a wallet that isn’t cheaply bridged to another network, this helps solve that problem!
