Leading US-based crypto exchange Coinbase has added two more digital currencies – Stellar Lumens (XLM) and Chainlink (LINK) – to its offerings to New York-based traders, the company announced on Thursday.

The exchange listed Stellar Lumens on its platform in March, while Chainlink debuted on it for trading in June. Though traders in all jurisdictions were able to trade with these digital currencies, New York residents were barred due to regulatory hurdles.

Stellar Lumens (XLM) is now available to Coinbase users who are New York residents. New Yorkers can now log in to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store XLM on or using our iOS and Android apps.
