Subsequently, on August 7 at 06:59 (UTC), the price fell to $18.63. The market capitalization volume amounts to $1.92 billion.
Recently, Ethereum Classic specialists have introduced new developments. In late June, the Radex crypto exchange was launched, which operates without fees and exchanges ERC223 tokens in cooperation with the Saturn Network startup. The first version of the Emerald wallet was launched almost simultaneously.
It should be noted that the addition of the Ethereum Classic cryptocurrency to the Robinhood listing has occured almost immediately after the listing of Dogecoin and Litecoin.
As previously reported, the Robinhood mobile app was developed in 2013 for trading stocks and exchange-traded funds. At the beginning of 2018, some cryptocurrencies became trading tools, and the platform got a web version. However, initially, the main cryptocurrencies were bitcoin and ether.
