The decision to explore support for these assets does not disqualify any other assets from being monitored for possible listing at Bitstamp,” it further explains.
The move is another example where established crypto exchanges are taking the cue from newer platforms through the addition of more trading pairs to ensure they compete in an ever-increasingly competitive landscape.

Bitstamp has had a busy year so far.
