Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, announced that it will list the Render Token (RNDR) on its platform as of February 2, with an announcement made this week.

   “Using the Render Network, node operators can choose to monetize their idle GPUs by rendering renders in exchange for Render Tokens (RNDR). RNDR can then be used within the network to render 3D content or exchanged with other cryptocurrencies to pay operational costs. "

Altcoin Render rose to $4.07 after the listing announcement by leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, but later pulled back a bit.
