May 28, 2021 — May was a whirlwind of progress and an exceptional month for all of us at Cartesi!
One of our most exciting announcements for this month includes a CTSI listing on Coinbase and Coinbase Pro with fiat pairs, in addition to Coinbase Custody! We were beyond excited to debut in the United States and expand access to CTSI as more important milestones approach. In addition to this listing, CTSI was also listed on premier exchanges such as Huobi, Crypto.com’s App and Exchange, Binance’s Liquid Swap, and an Indian Rupee pair on WazirX alongside other regional exchanges!
In addition, we announced new partnerships for Cartesi and Cartesi Labs. First, Cartesi Labs partnered with SOSV’s dlab, a leading VC firm, to support Cartesi Labs’ program participants and accelerate their growth. We also partnered with Gather Network to expand CTSI utility.
Alongside these thrilling ecosystem additions we were beyond excited to reach over 40,000 followers on Twitter, have CTSI natively integrated into Travala.com, held AMA’s, and in an ever increasing focus on highlighting how Cartesi can help in new industries, released part one, part two, and part 3 our new mini-series on decentralized gaming. Watch out for more of these mini-series to come!

CTSI is Now Live on Coinbase.com, Coinbase Pro and Coinbase Custody
We were excited to announce that Cartesi’s CTSI was listed on both Coinbase Pro and available on Coinbase.com and the iOS and Android apps! This marked the entrance of Cartesi’s foray into the United States as we approach critical milestones and expand presence and adoption.
Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store CTSI immediately. Coinbase released the full details and regulations in their blog post. In addition to this, Coinbase’s Institutional arm now also supports CTSI on Coinbase Custody, opening up adoption to institutions and more.
In addition to our listing on Coinbase, we were also listed on Huobi Global, one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges that focuses on other regions.
Following this, one of our early exchange partners, WazirX, added a fiat pair for CTSI, making it available to trade against the Indian Rupee (INR)! This unlocks access to India’s fast-growing ecosystem.
Binance also added a new CTSI/BNB pair on one of its top products, Liquid Swap, allowing users to provide liquidity in the pools to become a liquidity provider and earn transaction fees and flexible interest, as well as being able to swap CTSI in the liquidity pools easily.
Moreover, CTSI was also listed on Crypto.com’s App and its exchange. Over 10M+ Crypto.com App users can now purchase CTSI at true cost with USD, EUR, GBP and 20+ fiat currencies, as well as spend it at over 60M merchants globally using the Crypto.com Visa Card.
An exciting list of exchange additions for our community and those in the new regions that were unlocked! In addition to these we also had other regional exchanges list CTSI such as HitBTC and CoinEX.
