Just-In: BONK Price Soars As Coinbase Lists Solana Meme Coin After XRP

Bonk Price Prediction: Can Bithumb Exchange Listing Trigger 16% Move In BONK Price

Crypto exchange Coinbase on Friday said it is listing Solana-based meme coin Bonk for trading in New York. This was another exciting announcement for the crypto community by Coinbase after the listing of XRP for New York residents a day earlier. Traders responded immediately to the announcement as BONK price began upside momentum by rising more than 10% in a few hours.

Coinbase Lists Bonk for New York Customers

In an X post on May 24, Coinbase announced the listing of Bonk (BONK), saying it’s big news for the New York users. The crypto exchange shows support for the XRP and Solana meme coin Bonk with an image depicting “NY Loves XRP and BONK.”

Coinbase customers in New York start trading BONK on Coinbase website, as well as in the Coinbase iOS & Android apps. It further added that Coinbase customers can log in to buy, sell, convert, send, receive or store these assets.

The move comes a day after the crypto exchange listed XRP, expanding support for the much-discussed coins as the SEC continues to argue that XRP is a security and may challenge Judge Torres’ summary judgment that XRP in itself is not a security.

Meanwhile, Coinbase has also expanded support for meme coins Shiba Inu (SHIB), FLOKI, and BONK by listing 1000BONK-PERP, 1000FLOKI-PERP, and 1000SHIB-PERP perpetual futures contracts tradable from May 30.
