Coinbase finally names which coins they may add in the future...

Coinbase just announced a list of coins they are 'exploring' the option of adding to their exchange, in a blog post stating:

"Today we are announcing that we’re exploring the addition of the following assets to Coinbase:

Cardano (ADA)
Basic Attention Token (BAT)
Stellar Lumens (XLM)
Zcash (ZEC)
0x (ZRX)

We are making this announcement internally at Coinbase and to the public at the same time to remain transparent with our customers about support for future assets."

Coinbase emphasizes that none of these are guaranteed to be added. The full announcement can be read here.


[Update - Note] - After sharing this on social media the common question we're getting is "why name them if they aren't necessarily adding them?"  Well, after they added Bitcoin Cash last year Coinbase employees were accused of  buying some shortly before it happened, "insider trading" in other words.  But if Coinbase is simply public about the whole process from the beginning, no one will be able to say that about the next coins to be added.
