Ethereum Classic Gets A Boost As Coinbase Lists Coin

Coinbase announced on Friday that it plans to commence support for Ethereum Classic. The wallet and exchange service which has been criticized for not listing coins after testing has been categorical in its latest release stating that its listing of ETC will take place on Tuesday August 7 as the engineering team concludes tests.

The news of the company’s intention to list Ethereum Classic broke mid June when Coinbase announced that a plan to integrate the coin was at advanced stage. Although no timeline was given, the latest release puts to rest the controversy surrounding the listing.

As expected, the news had a pronounced impact on the price of the currency which rose by 18 percent trading at $16.53. The coin which has a market capitalization of $1 billion experiences a spike in demand with most major exchanges such as OKEx, Binance and Bitfinex showing appreciable hike in trading volume.

The fully working ETC trading pairs on Coinbase may significantly affect the price, making it raise at least temporarily as many new traders will want to benefit from it. The community and some experts expect that it may easily raise to $25, and if the cryptocurrency market manages to stabilize or even start raising again in next days, ETC could go even further. Currently it is trading around $17 and is doing quite well taking into the consideration that most of the cryptocurrencies are falling down, with ETH falling from $470 to little above $400 in a couple of days.
