0x (ZRX), an open protocol that facilitates the low-friction, peer-to-peer exchange of ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, is currently up over 12% after rumors began to circulate that Coinbase is gearing up to list the digital currency.
This speculation stemmed from screenshots showing 0x listed in Coinbase’s tax gain/loss calculator, alongside the coins already listed on the leading cryptocurrency exchange.
However, since the images began to circulate across Reddit and Twitter, numerous individuals claim that they were unable to recreate the image found within the screenshots. While the initial accounts that posted the image say that it could be because that Coinbase worked to remove the “leak,” it’s more than likely due to the fact that it was never real.
One major concern surrounding this rumor is the fact that anyone can simply edit the source code on a page to include any text, meaning investors should be skeptical of random screenshots. We have been unable to confirm the rumors through multiple accounts.
We reached out to Coinbase for comment about the screenshots’ authenticity but did not immediately receive a reply.
