Ethereum Classic (ETC) is launching on Coinbase Pro
Transfer ETC immediately to your exchange account, and start trading within the next few days
Coinbase Pro announced final testing for Ethereum Classic (ETC) last Friday, with a goal of accepting ETC transfers for exchange users by Tuesday August 7th. Their testing has gone according to plan and they will be launching ETC support first on our exchanges, and then at Coinbase.com. Their launch will proceed in four stages: transfer-only, post-only, limit-only, and full-trading mode.
They are beginning the launch of ETC on their exchange at Coinbase Pro. They plan to add support for ETC at Coinbase.com when sufficient liquidity is established. They expect this to occur approximately 1–2 weeks after trading begins on Coinbase Pro.
Coinbase recently split GDAX into Coinbase Pro and Prime. Coinbase Pro is their exchange for individual traders, and Coinbase Prime is their exchange for institutions.
About Ethereum Classic (ETC):
Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a smarter blockchain, it is a network, a community, and a cryptocurrency that takes digital assets further. In addition to allowing people to send value to each other, ETC allows for complex contracts that operate autonomously and cannot be modified or censored. This may be best explained with an analogy, imagine Bitcoin as a landline phone—it does one thing very well. ETC is like a smartphone—it can do everything Bitcoin can and much more. ETC has some of the largest network activity of any blockchain, consistently higher than Bitcoin Cash, and neck-and-neck with Litecoin. They have multiple developer teams, all of whom are committed to the long term ETC vision. They are in the top-10 in programmer activity (measured by code commits). They have numerous sources of funding, and they continue to grow, day-by-day, commit-by-commit, line-by-line of code to create a bullet-proof network that anyone can use.
ETC is down 11.86% over the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $17.04 USD.
