Coinbase Commerce Now Supports Dogecoin

  • Coinbase Commerce is a platform by the Nasdaq-listed Coinbase that “enables merchants anywhere in the world to accept cryptocurrency payments in a fully decentralized way,” its website describes.
  • The company announced via Twitter Wednesday:

We’re now accepting commerce payments in dogecoin (DOGE).

  • According to its website, seven cryptocurrencies are now supported. Customers can “check out and pay with bitcoin, bitcoin cash, dai, ethereum, litecoin, dogecoin, or USD Coin.”
  • The website further explains: “All payments facilitated by Coinbase Commerce are fully decentralized and peer-to-peer. This means that the cryptocurrency goes directly from your wallet to a wallet that is only accessible by the merchant. At no point in this flow does anyone except the merchant, including Coinbase, have access to these funds.”
  • In June, the Nasdaq-listed company added dogecoin and its rival meme coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) to Coinbase Pro.
  • Meanwhile, Coinbase has been expanding globally. The company recently got approval to operate in Germany and Japan. It is also building a crypto hub in India, hiring hundreds of people. In addition, Coinbase is planning to launch an Apple-like crypto app store.
