💱Coinbase x Polygon💱

Coinbase will be adding support for various Ethereum layer 2s starting with Polygon. This move might be a not-so-subtle response to Binance’s own integration with Polygon a few weeks back. The caveat there is that Binance only supports withdrawals of the MATIC token to Polygon
