Good news for Android and iOS users! From today, Stellar (XLM) is now available for use on these platforms. This is according to a post on the Coinbase blog earlier today. Coinbase customers using these apps can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive or store XLM, according to the announcement.
XLM was listed on Coinbase Pro last week for trading making it available on the Coinbase exchange. It was however not immediately available on Coinbase.com, but Coinbase promised it will soon be available for Android and iOS apps. Today, this has been fulfilled and customers with mobile devices can now enjoy the same access as users of other devices. However, customers from the United Kingdom and the State of New York are not able to use this service until further notice.
Coinbase is one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the United States and is one of the leading ones globally. The exchange initially supported only Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) before recently listing Ripple (XRP). This was followed by XLM which is the latest addition to the list of cryptocurrencies.
Stellar XLM is one of the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap and is currently the 8th largest. The crypto project, like Ripple, is focused on facilitating cross-border payments. Stellar shares the vision of making funds transfer as seamless as possible and is arguably one of the crypto assets with the brightest future.
Listing XLM and making it available to mobile device users is in an attempt to bring as many crypto assets to its users as possible and increasing the ease of buying, selling and storing digital assets supported by the platform.
XLM has been one of the top gainers according to Coin Market Cap and has been in the lead until yesterday when it dipped slightly into the red zone. At press time, however, the asset is back in the green with a gain of 3.40% in the last 24 hours. Unlike the initial listing, access on Android and iOS apps will not be in stages and users can start using it right away.
