Is BAT the next one after ZRX? Coinbase adding Basic Attention Token (BAT) rumors getting louder

Cryptocurrency market runs on speculation fuel – any price jump or slump you see can be usually explained with a rumor, false or true statement of some crypto “expert” or even directly of a team member.

If you throw a glance at the market today, you will see ZRX and BAT dominating the green color. There is a common denominator for their prices surges – Coinbase exchange listing. ZRX is already listed and started trading yesterday while BAT is the front-runner to be the next one added.

Over the past 24 hours, the Basic Attention Token price has risen by just over 12% to trade at $0.25 at the press time.

The speculation is grounded in the report released by Coinbase that had explored the addition of cryptocurrencies like Basic Attention Token [BAT], Stellar Lumens [XLM] and Cardano [ADA].

Crypto Twitter is propelling the rumors at blinding speed, below are some of the opinions and tweets that led the discourse:

Coinbase has revealed that it addition of further tokens is in the works in the upcoming months. Coinbase is the leading crypto exchange and works hard to remain ahead of its competition, especially in the realm of regulations. They have already received a US regulators’ approval to list tokens that could be deemed as securities which is a unique position among their competition that is largely in gray area when it comes to regulatory compliance.
