0x (Zero-ex) is an open source platform for building out decentralized exchanges that allow users to trade Ethereum-based tokens (from ZRX, to ETH, to any token built on that network), it has been in the works since 2016 (it has some longevity at this point), it is built on top of the Ethereum platform, and has a native cryptocurrency token also called 0x (which has historically preformed well).
You can sign up to test run a program Coinbase is doing where they pay you a small amount of ZRX to learn about 0x (aka Zero-ex).
A while back Coinbase said it was exploring adding ZRX, ADA, BAT, XLM, and ZEC. Since ZRX was added, there is good reason to pay attention to ADA, BAT, XLM, and ZEC.
