GMO Coin Becomes First Japanese Exchange to List Astar Network Tokens
GMO Coin, the cryptocurrency exchange operated by GMO Coin, a subsidiary of GMO Financial Holdings, has announced that it will list Astar (ASTR) for trading on its platform. This move makes GMO Coin the first Japanese exchange to support both EVM and native deposits for Astar. The exchange will start trading the token after its regular maintenance on March 22, 2023.

It has become the third blockchain to win a slot to connect with Polkadot and aims to be the hub between other blockchains. ASTR is the native token used for governance voting, dApp developer incentives, and payment of transaction fees.
