According to the announcement, the major updates include a new crypto address system that provides an easy way to keep track of frequently used crypto addresses and an option for address whitelisting.
The address whitelisting allows users to pre-select addresses that qualify to receive transactions, reducing the likelihood of a security compromise where funds are sent to a hacker’s address. The address whitelisting process comes with a 48-hour delay to allow users to fully confirm that someone isn’t trying to add an illicit address.
This news comes several weeks after Coinbase Pro earned the highest security ranking in an independent study conducted by ICORating, a leading research group focused on digital assets.
