Many analysts have been quick to point out the slowness of the team Coinbase and efficiency Robinhood. However, it is important to consider the difference in complexity of this operation is Robinhood, unlike Coinbase, at this point does not input and output of digital assets. In the near future the company plans to launch the built-in crypto-currency wallet that supports 17 of the top coins, allowing customers to freely dispose of their assets.
Course Ethereum Classic increased by 15%.
As a result of positive news value ETC increased by 15% over the past day despite a bearish trend in the cryptocurrency market. Thus, the volume of trading amounted to quite a large sum – $470 million, and the price ETC were the highest in 3 months – $20.3.
