On Friday, the company said on a news blog that it could not guarantee that any of the assets listed would find a permanent home on its stock exchange.
Nevertheless, the valuation of the coins was increasing, Cardano rose by nearly 12% to 14 cents, Zcash was trading almost 16% higher at $ 178, Stellar's coins were up 11% to about 20 cents a lumen. The 0x coin increased by 26% to 96 cents, while the BAT coin increased by 21% to 32 cents.
