Ethereum Classic fans rejoice! After Coinbase announced that it is in the final phase of testing Ethereum Classic support on its platform, Robinhood exchange has now announced that it will add Ethereum Classic on its app. Investors in the US (currently available in 19 states) can now invest in Ethereum Classic (ETC) commission-free on the Robinhood exchange. In addition to the just added ETC, Robinhood allows investors to buy Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE).
ETC is currently trading at $18.28 (Source: Coinmarketcap), up 9.34% in the last 24 hours. Coinbase is expected to finish testing of ETC tomorrow, i.e August 7th, after which trading will be enabled within 24-48 hours after sufficient liquidity is established. ETC will first come on Coinbase Pro and Prime. The Coinbase consumer service will add ETC only after its added on Coinbase Pro and Prime and would roughly take 1-2 weeks, depending on the liquidity.
