Instant and free Dogecoin payments arrive on Coinbase Commerce
Coinbase Commerce announced two significant updates to its platform. Coinbase users can now avail of the exchange’s free and instant payments to merchants in the platform’s network. Also, the exchange announced the addition of seven new cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum, USD Coin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dogecoin, DAI, USD Tether, Apecoin, and Shiba Inu.
