Coinbase studies the possibility of adding Stellar, Cardano, Zcash ...


Coinbase has announced to 'explore' the Stellar Lumens (XML), Cardano (ADA), Zcash (ZEC), 0x (ZRX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) crypto-currencies for possible future additions to its service.

In an article on his blog, the company Coinbase said to study the possibility of adding 5 new virtual currencies on its platform. After revealing that the Ethereum Classic (ETC) would soon be available for purchase and sale, 5 new cryptocurrencies could also be selected and take advantage of the vast audience of the Californian firm (more than 20 million customers ).

However, unlike Ethereum Classic, the company explained that the addition of Stellar Lumens (XML), Cardano (ADA), Zcash (ZEC), 0x (ZRX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) required additional exploration work upstream given the nature of the architecture of the chips.

Also, Coinbase said that some cryptocurrencies could be added but would not enjoy the same privileges. For example, assets may be offered solely for purchase and sale, but can not be sent or received on a local portfolio.

In addition, assets may be available in certain jurisdictions before being offered in the United States.

Coinbase also revealed that this announcement was made internally and externally at the same time in order to remain transparent vis-à-vis its customers.
