To manage a smooth transition, trading on the XTZ/USD, and XTZ/BTC order books will start in phases. The stages are described below:
- Transfer-only. The first phase will be customers transfer-only mode, where customers will be able to transfer XTZ into their Coinbase Pro account. Customers will not yet be able to place orders and no orders will be filled on these order books. This phase will run for 12 hours.
- Post-only. In the second stage, customers can post limit orders but there will be no matches (completed orders). Order books will be in post-only mode for a minimum of one minute.
- Limit-only. In the third stage, limit orders will start matching but customers are unable to submit market orders. Order books will be in limit-only mode for a minimum of ten minutes.
- Full trading. In the final stage, full trading services will be available, including limit, market, and stop orders.
The stages will be followed independently for each new order book. In case the new order books do not meet Coinbase’s assessment for a healthy and orderly market at any point of time, the initiation of phases will be delayed or trading will be suspended as per Coinbase’s Trading Rules. Official communication will happen via Coinbase Pro Twitter handle as each order book moves through the phases.
