Ethereum Classic [ETC] Gets Multiple Listings

It was in June that Coinbase first announced that it was considering listing Ethereum Classic raising a mild debate as to why the exchange was considering ETC ahead of Ripple [XRP]. Coinbase, however, noted that the choice was in line with its Digital Asset Framework.

Robinhood Expanding into Crypto

Robinhood’s statement indicated that its cryptocurrency trading service is available in 19 states with a promise to keep expanding. After it introduced its cryptocurrency platform in February, the stock brokerage soon raised $363 on a $5.6 billion valuation in a Series D funding round to expand its services.

The app soon added Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash while also increasing its services area from 10 states to 16 states now.
