Coinbase, a major cryptocurrency exchange, announced that they are exploring the addition of Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC), and 0x (ZRX) to their platform. However, the company stressed that no final decision has been made, saying in a tweet that some of the coins may also be listed with only “partial support.”

In one example, Stellar Lumens, the fast-growing cryptocurrency that has surged to the 7th spot on CoinMarketCap’s ranking, saw gains in the double digits on Saturday.

After surging by more than 10% on Saturday, the coin continued its upward momentum on Sunday by adding another 5%, bringing the price to a high of USD 0.221 according to Coinmarketcap.com. Along with the price increase came a strong surge in trading volume – usually a bullish sign for any asset.
