Primarily the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange only trades in premium cryptocurrencies and till date, it has not allowed any of the non-premium cryptocurrencies such as Zcash to be traded over its platform.
However, there were talks and rumors in the financial domain regarding the acceptance of Zcash cryptocurrency over its platform due to the reason of Zcash being one of the few cryptocurrencies of having such high-end and privacy features. But, the talks could not become reality and till date, Zcash cryptocurrency is not traded over the Coinbase platform.
