Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, announced today that the company has officially¬†been whitelisted for advertising on Facebook, marking a major step forward for the company’s user acquisition strategy.

This news comes on the back of¬†Facebook’s¬†(FB) earlier announcement that it has reversed its¬†January decision¬†to ban advertisements¬†related to cryptocurrencies and other digital assets on its platform.

In that¬†announcement, Facebook stated that starting on June 26, the company would allow ads that promote “cryptocurrency and related content from pre-approved advertisers,” but still plans on prohibiting initial coin offering (ICO) and binary option ads.

It’s been a big month for Coinbase, which¬†recently¬†announced¬†that it is¬†currently exploring adding five new cryptocurrencies to its trading products, including¬†Cardano¬†(ADA),¬†Basic Attention Token¬†(BAT),¬†Stellar Lumens¬†(XLM),¬†Zcash¬†(ZEC) and¬†0x¬†(ZRX).
