Bitcoin exchange Coinbase adds support for ether

Investing | July 25, 2016 By:

Coinbase announced it has added support for ether, the digital currency for the Ethereum platform.

“We are pleased to announce that Coinbase is adding support for Ethereum. Consumers can now easily buy, sell, send, and store ether in their Coinbase account. To get started, visit the “Trade” page on Coinbase.com or tap on “Buy” or “Sell” options in our iOS or Android apps,” said Coinbase.

The announcement follows Coinbase’s first commitment to the Ethereum network in May when it added ether support to its bitcoin trading exchange, a service since rebranded as the Global Digital Asset Exchange (GDAX).

Coinbase is a San-Francisco based bitcoin wallet and exchange platform.
