The team of the Coinbase crypto exchange reported in the official blog of the company on the addition of the Ethereum Classic (ETC) cryptocurrency to the listing.
Customers can send ETC to their accounts. Trading will be available within the next few days. Specialists of the crypto exchange have been carrying out final checks of Ethereum Classic support for the last few days and successfully completed them on Tuesday, August 7.
Following last week’s update about the final stage of testing for Ethereum Classic (ETC), we are now accepting inbound transfers of ETC on @CoinbasePro. Full launch schedule here: https://t.co/SRPufCbvbm— Coinbase (@coinbase) 7 августа 2018 г.
ETC will be launched primarily on the Coinbase Pro and Coinbase Prime trading platforms. They were created after the separation of the GDAX crypto exchange for the convenience of depositors. The first one is suitable for individual investors, the second one – for institutional. The representatives of Coinbase Prime will contact the latter to provide consulting services.
The ETC launch will take place in several stages. At each of them, the specialists of the trading platform will keep an eye on the order books in ETC pairs with the dollar, bitcoin, and euro. In case of doubt about the status of the order books, the exchange team reserves the right to suspend trading.
