Announcements | March 22, 2016 By:

Uphold announced that it is going to add Ethereum and Litecoin to its service in the forthcoming months.

“We’ll soon be adding support for Litecoin and Ethereum, which we believe complement the purpose of Bitcoin and may have a role to play in the years to come. And it won’t end there, we will continue to be on the lookout for other crypto-currencies that prove to be safe, useful and broadly adopted,” said Uphold executive vice president, chief product & engineering officer Jorge Pereira.

The platform so far supported 14 different digital versions of currencies including bitcoin as one of them. Now, with the introduction of Litecoin and Ethereum into the platform, the count of currencies supported by the platform has risen from 14 to 16. In addition to multiple currencies, the platform also supports precious metals like gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Litecoin support will start from April followed by Ethereum in May.

Uphold is a cloud based financial services platform.
