Coinbase has been making headlines a lot this year, despite the global crisis in the middle of which we are.
Not too long ago, we were reporting that the exchange announced the release of a Visa debit card.
US-based customers will be able to enjoy up to four percent rewards while using their digital assets through Coinbase’s new Visa debit card called Coinbase Card, the announcement revealed.
Also, Bitcoin spending will get one percent cash back.
New crypto platform under the spotlight
Now, it’s been revealed that Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong placed the spotlight on a new crypto platform that’s distributing tokens in exchange for research contributions.
The Daily Hodl pointed out ResearchHub, run by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) – this is a platform that’s designed to foster collaboration in scientific research in quite the same that way that GitHub has done for software engineering.
Back in July, the platform launched ResearchCoin (RSC), a token awarded to users whenever they receive an upvote on a post or contribution.
Armstrong highlighted the start-up on Twitter. Here’s his message:
This is great: now you can earn crypto by helping contribute to science. Great example of the new types of crypto startups that are coming out. https://t.co/SxU2lGkN58

People showed enthusiasm in the comments, and more followers focused on BTC’s price these days.
For instance, someone said: “Spooktober is officially over, and bitcoin is closer to ATH more than ever! If there was no good morning crypto and our academy, bitcoin would still be below 10k.”
