Bridging the gap and deepening connections between cryptocurrencies and traditional finance, Ramp Network has integrated with Coinbase’s newest offering, Base. This merger allows Ramp users to efficiently transition Base-native ETH and USDC into diverse crypto chains and directly into fiat, according to the official announcement.
