It’s been a little over two weeks since Coinbase first announced that it was looking into adding support for Ethereum Classic (ETC) on its popular cryptocurrency exchange. At the time, the move was seen as a way to further legitimize ETC, which had been created in the wake of the Ethereum hard fork that occurred in 2016.
Since then, there has been a lot of speculation as to when exactly Coinbase would add ETC support. The rumor mill kicked into high gear last week when it was reported that ETC was already live on Coinbase Pro, the exchange’s professional trading platform.
This led many to believe that ETC would be added to Coinbase’s main platform imminently. However, days went by without any official announcement from Coinbase.
Finally, on July 30th, the exchange took to Twitter to confirm that ETC would indeed be added to Coinbase in the near future.
As of now, there is still no specific timeline for when ETC will be available on Coinbase. However, given the fact that it’s already live on Coinbase Pro, it is likely only a matter of days or weeks before the main platform adds support as well.
This is good news for those who are bullish on ETC. The coin has already seen a nice price bump since news of Coinbase’s plans first broke.
And with more mainstream exposure on the horizon, it is likely that the price of ETC will continue to rise in the coming days and weeks.
Alchemy Pay is a service that allows you to send and receive payments in cryptocurrency. The service is currently available in beta, and allows you to link your bank account or debit card to your Alchemy Pay account in order to make purchases with participating merchants.
Coinbase is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges, and adding support for Alchemy Pay would allow more people to use the service. Currently, there is no timeline for when or if Coinbase will add support for Alchemy Pay.
However, given the exchange’s recent track record with adding new features and assets, it is certainly possible that Alchemy Pay could be added in the future.
