The latest addition to Coinbase Earn, a section of the San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange’s website that lets users earn cryptocurrencies while learning about them, is the privacy-centric cryptocurrency Zcash (ZEC).
If you received an emailed invite, you can start the lessons and earn up to $3 worth of ZEC. If you didn't get an invite, the educational videos are available to everyone, and you can join the waitlist to be notified when Earn ZEC opps become available. https://t.co/pwlIAgA792

When it was launched late last year, the program initially featured 0x. Earlier this month, Coinbase added Brave’s Basic Attention Token (BAT) to the program. Through it, users can earn these cryptos by simply watching videos about them and learning.
While the other two cryptocurrencies were well-received by the cryptocurrency community, some have revealed they aren’t happy watching videos about Zcash to “only” earn $3 worth of ZEC tokens. This, as if they’re looking to sell the tokens on Coinbase itself fees will eat a part of the already small prize.
Nevertheless, some were happy to be able to earn ZEC by simply learning about it. Notably, while the BAT token jumped over 12% when the cryptocurrency was added to Coinbase’s program, the same hasn’t happened with Zcash.
The privacy-centric cryptocurrency, according to CryptoCompare data, is currently down by 0.6% in the last 24 hours, as it’s trading at $51.8. Its decline isn’t part of a general market trend, as most other top cryptocurrencies are up, with BTC rising 0.25% in said period.
