Now, Ethereum Classic (ETC) is far ahead of Monero [XMR] and Tron (TRX), and the digital currency is currently running after IOTA (MIOTA). The digital currency has made a considerable amount of progress over the past weeks, and what’s behind this progress is nothing other than the series of announcements made by Coinbase about the digital currency.
The Recent Announcements of Coinbase
Last weekend, a couple of hours after the digital currency trading platform – Coinbase – announced that it will add Ethereum Classic (ETC) to the list of tradable coins on its platform, there was so much excitement in the digital currency space that caused the value of the coin to increase to about $17 from $14.
At the time of writing, Ethereum Classic (ETC) is ahead of Tron and Monero, occupying the number 11th spot on the list of top digital currencies by market cap.
Yesterday, the trading platform said that it has finished the final testing for ETC. Following the update about the final testing phase last week, the exchange is now accepting inbound transfers of Ethereum Classic on Coinbase Pro.
At the moment, Ethereum Classic ETH has been added to Coinbase Pro, and once the market of the digital currency is stable with massive liquidity, it will be added to Coinbase.com also. Once the digital currency is listed on Coinbase.com and trading starts fully, there is hope that the value, as well as the market cap of the digital currency, will increase considerably.
