Random: Even Coca-Cola Is Getting In On The Switch Pro Hype

There’s a good chance that we’ll hear about the Switch Pro (or whatever it’s called) today, and, as is so often the case, we’re seeing other ‘brands’ getting in on the action to give themselves a little social media boost.

Coca-Cola Brazil has posted the following cheeky tweet:

CONFIRMED! Coca-Cola Pro will be released. We will tell you the date as it happens……

Nintendo’s E3 Direct happens later today, and while the company has stressed that it will be focused on software and not hardware, that doesn’t mean the company isn’t going to surprise us with “one more thing” – just as it did when the New Nintendo 3DS was shadow-dropped during a Japanese Direct broadcast.

Do you think that we’ll see the Switch Pro today, or do you think we’re going to have to wait a little longer? Let us know with a comment.

Much hype: Memecoin DOGE set for listing on Coinbase Pro

Coinbase Pro, the professional trading arm of the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange, has begun accepting inbound transfers for Dogecoin (DOGE), setting the stage for wider adoption of the meme-based digital asset. 

Trading of DOGE will go live on Coinbase Pro on Thursday at 4:00 pm UTC, provided that liquidity conditions are met, the exchange announced Tuesday afternoon.

Initially, DOGE will be supported across five trading pairs, including DOGE/USD, DOGE/BTC, DOGE/EUR, DOGE/GBP and DOGE/USDT. Order books will launch in three staggered phases, beginning with post-only, followed by limit-only and then full-trading.

“If at any point one of the new order books does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period of time or suspend trading as per our Trading Rules,” Coinbase said.

The price of DOGE appears to have responded positively to the news, gaining more than 3%, according to TradingView. Of course, such gains pale in comparison to the exponential rise for the meme-based cryptocurrency through the first five months of 2021.

Dogecoin has permeated the mainstream thanks to a bizarre confluence of factors, including Elon Musk’s apparent backing of the coin and widespread support from Robinhood traders. At one point during the market craze, DOGE liquidations surpassed Bitcoin (BTC), underscoring the high demand for the asset. Twitter activity surrounding DOGE also briefly surpassed the flagship crypto asset at the beginning of the year.
