0x’s massive growth comes in the wake of the cryptocurrency being listed on Coinbase, a popular cryptocurrency exchange. Coinbase had stated:

“Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, send, receive, or store ZRX, along with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic and Litecoin. ZRX will be available for customers in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the United Kingdom or the state of New York.”

The other cryptocurrency enjoying the rodeo was Basic Attention Token [BAT], joining the double digit growth club. At press time, BAT was surging by 11.12%, with a total market of $206.668 million. The cryptocurrency was trading for $0.207 with a 24-hour market volume of $12.823 million.

Binance was again in the picture when it came to majority trade volume hold, with almost $5.904 million of all BAT trade occurring on the exchange. Binace was closely followed by EtherDelta, with a grasp of $1.945 million of all Basic Attention Token trade volume.
