ZRX Trading Pairs Added
Coinbase Pro, the FDIC insured trading platform for advanced traders from the Coinbase suite of products, has announced the addition of 0x (ZRX) token to its list of digital assets. The announcement was made on the Coinbase Pro Twitter account and on the official Coinbase blog earlier Thursday.
ZRX is launching on Coinbase Pro! The ZRX/USD, ZRX/BTC, and ZRX/EUR order books have entered transfer-only mode. Traders can deposit ZRX, but cannot yet place or fill orders. Order books will remain in transfer-only mode for at least 12 hours. https://t.co/SomOUqoXhv

According to the blog post, the platform began accepting ZRX deposits at 10 am PT on Thursday, October 11 and the exchange would accept deposits for at least 12 hours before opening the trading window.
The token would be available for trading in ZRX/USD, ZRX/EUR and ZRX/BTC pairs but not in ZRX/GBP. Trading of the token would be available in most jurisdictions except for New York state.
The post also clarifies that the token is not yet available on the Coinbase.com platform.
For each trading pair, the exchange will follow the below-listed stages, as explained in the post:
- Transfer-only: Starting at 10 am PT on Thursday, October 11, customers will be able to transfer ZRX into their Coinbase Pro account. Customers will not yet be able to place orders, and no orders will be filled on these order books. Order books will be in transfer-only mode for at least 12 hours.
- Post-only: In the second stage, customers can post limit orders but there will be no matches (completed orders). Order books will be in post-only mode for a minimum of one (1) minute. This market state may be kept short or extended, to increase market health during launch.
- Limit-only: In the third stage, limit orders will start matching but customers will be unable to submit market orders. Order books will be in limit-only mode for a minimum of 10 minutes.
- Full trading: In the final stage, full trading services will be available, including limit, market, and stop orders.
Coinbase notes that:
If at any point one of the new order books does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period of time, or suspend trading as per our Trading Rules.
