Crypto Exchange To Extend Dollar-To-Crypto Scheme To Eth Classic And Ripple

Crypto exchange Bittrex will be extending its dollar-to-crypto trading service to Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Ripple’s XRP.


Cryptocurrency exchange platform Bittrex will be rolling out its latest fiat trading update for Ethereum Classic and Ripple’s XRP token, according to its official announcement yesterday, August 8.

Toward Further Adoption

Bittrex will be extending its services to other cryptocurrencies in the future using a phased approach, which, according to the exchange, is fashioned in a way that its processes and systems are functioning optimally before they open it up to its customers.

The exchange is excited about the addition of the said trading pairs, as it will not only offer its customers a seamless experience in purchasing cryptocurrencies on its exchange with US dollars, but it will also offer trading pairs that “may only be found on our platform.”

Bittrex expressed:

“Today’s announcement is another exciting step toward further adoption of blockchain technology, which is truly revolutionary. In addition to broader acceptance, expanding fiat markets to the top digital currencies on our trading platform will help limit the dominance and influence of any token over other blockchain projects—a necessary evolution if we’re going to unleash blockchain’s potential benefits for consumers and businesses.”
