The First ERC-20 Token Will Be Listed On Coinbase

The biggest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has started the listing of the ERC-20 token Ox (Zrx) according to an announcement from the platform. This will be the first time Coinbase support an ERC-20 token.

As of yesterday, October 11th, deposits became available on Coinbase Pro. According to Coinbase statement, they will accept deposits for 12 hours before enabling trading. Once enough liquidity is established, trading will begin with the currency pairs ZRX/USD, ZRX/EUR and ZRX/BTC. Trading will be possible for most jurisdictions but not for the state of New York initially. At the moment, ZRX is only available on the Coinbase Pro platform and not on, the iOS or Android apps as of yet. A separate announcement will be made when that occurs.

Coinbase has divided the launch into four different stages. The first stage will allow investors and traders to transfer ZRX to their Coinbase pro accounts, without the option to place orders. The second phase will let customers place limit orders, but with no matches. The following two stages will enable “limit only” and “full trading” which means full trading service, including market, limit and stop orders. Coinbase writes that the most frequent question they get is when they will enable more assets on the platform, and they now have a way to do just that.

“One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. With the recent announcement of our new listing process, our customers can expect us to list most assets over time that meet our standards.”

Two weeks ago, Coinbase announced that they might list thousands of new assets in a not too distant future. They have introduced a new process that will allow the exchange to list most of the digital assets that are compliant with local laws. It seems like it is starting to happen now.

Earlier this year, Toshi Times covered a story where Coinbase stated that they might list a few new assets, and Ox was among the chosen. Ox is now listed on Coinbase Pro, and according to, Ox is the 25th biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation.
