We are pleased to announce our intention to add support for Ethereum Classic (ETC) to Coinbase in the coming months. We are announcing this both internally and to the public consistent with our process for adding new assets.
Per this process, we will now begin the engineering work (Step 4) for supporting Ethereum Classic. As part of this process, customers can expect to see public-facing APIs and other signs that the asset is being added. When we reach the final testing phase of the technical integration, which we expect to occur over the next few months, we will publicly announce a launch date for trading via our blog and Twitter (Step 5).
What Ethereum Classic support means for our products
Coinbase Custody — the Custody team is planning to add support for deposits and withdrawals of Ethereum Classic. Note that Custody will likely support more assets than those available to trade on Coinbase Markets, Coinbase Pro, Coinbase Prime and Coinbase for the foreseeable future.
Coinbase Markets — the Markets team is planning to add trading support for Ethereum Classic. In accordance with our Trading Rules, all ETC books will open in post-only for a minimum of one hour. If sufficient liquidity is established, trading will then be enabled on Pro and Prime.
