Besides, the support of the standard will allow to restore the assets sent by users to the Ethereum-addresses GDAX and Coinbase by mistake.

As for Coinbase Asset Management, on index methodology any assets in listing of GDAX will be added to the Coinbase Index on the basis of market capitalization.

Assessment will be made in a number of parameters, including liquidity, stability of the price and other indicators of “market health”.
