New York Times tech editor Mike Masnick revealed on Twitter today that he and his team are working with Coinbase to support Android and iOS devices in the future.
“We are working on Android, too,” he said.
“Our goal is to be ready to support the latest platforms by the end of the year.”
Masnick added that the company was looking into supporting Apple TV.
“Apple TV is one of the most popular streaming devices right now.
There are a lot of reasons for this.
But it’s also something we’re going to support.
We just need to get Apple TV on the platform,” he wrote.
Masnick went on to describe Coinbase as “the largest bitcoin marketplace in the world”.
He also confirmed that Coinbase was also working with Google on the same idea.
“Google has a partnership with Coinbase on Android and will be working with them on the app, too, so we have a lot more to do,” he added.
As far as when we will see Coinbase support Android, Masnick said that he “might have to wait”.
“We are looking into Android, so for sure we are looking at it for the future,” he tweeted.
“We’re going all out to support all the new platforms.
We don’t have any plans to support iOS, but we’re definitely open to that.
We want to support it as much as possible.”
In other news, Masneck has also confirmed to TechCrunch that the world’s second largest bitcoin trading platform, BTCChina, will soon be supporting Android.
BTCChina was recently acquired by the cryptocurrency platform BitFlyer.
Coinbase will also support Android for its iOS platform in the coming months, although no date has been set.
It’s not yet clear how Coinbase plans to handle bitcoin futures trading, but the company has previously indicated that it might make it easier to buy and sell the digital cryptocurrency.
The platform previously supported futures trading on futures contracts on the OTC market, and it will soon support bitcoin futures as well.
Bitcoin futures, which allow investors to buy or sell bitcoin futures contracts in a variety of currencies, have become a key driver of bitcoin’s price, and futures have been used to buy a wide variety of other cryptocurrencies, including gold, silver, and platinum.
