0x on Coinbase & 5 projects that might be listed next

Coinbase listed the ZRX token this week. 0x represents the third project added to Coinbase in the last 12 months. What project will be next listed?

Coinbase listed the ZRX token this week. 0x represents the third project added to Coinbase in the last 12 months. Following the additions of Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum Classic. I feel the ZRX listing is in sharp contrast to the previous two. This is because ZRX I feel is a viable project whereas ETC in particular seems little more than a crypto collectors item with minimal real utility.

0x

The 0x Project

0X aims to solve the liquidity and speed issues of decentralised exchanges. I always favour projects that have a clearly defined goal. 0X themselves do not charge transaction fees but there is nothing to stop exchanges built on their blockchain charging fees. Rewards where applicable are issued in ZRX tokens. The success of Binance Coin is a good indicator for what we might see happen with ZRX.

The reaction to the listing on Coinbase has had a positive impact on the price of 0x’s ZRX token. Blockdelta indicated a buy target of $0.60 in a previous piece and an entry at this point would have yielded an 80% gain if disposed of at peak price yesterday.

Who’s next on Coinbase?

I think there are 5 projects that are very well placed to be next listed on Coinbase. All of these projects have been mentioned by Coinbase as being under consideration. Consequently barring a left-field selection these seem the logical next listings.

XRP

Boasting one of the most hilarious twitter followings this pre-mined centralised ‘cryptocurrency’ is probably the leader of the pack when it comes to a Coinbase and it is not entirely unfair. Many financial institutions are using their product to solve a real business need — quick cross border transactions.

Likelihood — 9/10

ADA

Cardano has been a top 10 coin for a long spell now. Fundamentally it is a very solid project. The recent partnership with Metaps in Korea will bring the tokens offered by Cardano into over 33,000 offline franchise stores and promotions, partnering with named franchises who are current Metaps Plus partners.

Cardano is likely neck in neck with XRP as the favourite for listing.

Likelihood — 9/10

XLM

Stellar Lumens has been a notable performer on the back of the recent Bitcoin rally to the mid $8K range prior to the alt-slump. Essentially an open-sourced, distributed payments infrastructure, built on the premise that the international community needs “a worldwide financial network open to anyone.” Stellar Lumens will fill this need, connecting individuals, institutions, and payment systems through its platform.

The foundation has notable partnerships with IBM and Deloitte hinting at real commercial viability.

Likelihood — 8/10

ZCASH

Unlike Bitcoin, ZEC is private which mean that transactions on the ZEC network can be verified by miners and committed to the blockchain “without requiring users to reveal any details about their identities, the transaction value or any other metadata”.

Privacy is made possible through a cutting-edge cryptographic technique know as zk-SNARKs implemented on the block-chain by what is arguably one of the best team of cryptographers in the world.

Likelihood — 8/10

EOS

Ethereum On Steroids raised an unprecedented $4 billion in it’s ICO and has received a ringing endorsement from the Chinese government. EOS is a blockchain platform for the development of decentralized applications (dapps), similar to Ethereum in function. It makes dapp development easy by providing an operating-system-like set of services and functions that dapps can make use of.

The idea behind EOS is to bring together the best features and promises of the various smart contract technologies out there (e.g. security of Bitcoin, computing support of Ethereum) in one simple to use, massively scalable dapp platform for the everyday user to empower the impending blockchain economy.

Likelihood — 8/10
