In February, Coinbase Pro added support for XRP, but did not include New York in the list of supported regions.
Coinbase currently supports a number of cryptocurrencies including bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ether (ETH), ethereum classic (ETC), litecoin (LTC), Zcash (ZEC), Augur (REP), and others. Circle’s USDC is the only stablecoin currently supported by the platform.
The exchange has also started offering a service that allows users to send money across borders using XRP and USDC stablecoin.
