TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2018 /CNW/ Today Coinsquare, Canada's premier cryptocurrency trading platform for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, announced the addition of Ethereum Classic (ETC) to its coin offerings. ETC is the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum Classic blockchain, a technology that powers smart contracts, IoT projects, and a variety of cryptocurrency wallets. The ETC community is among the top-10 most active blockchain communities by programmer activity and a top 20 cryptocurrency by overall market capitalization. 

"One key element of doing digital currency right is adding high quality cryptocurrencies to our platform, and we're excited to add ETC to Coinsquare's offerings," said Cole Diamond, CEO of Coinsquare. "As the cryptocurrency market matures, we're seeing a growing demand for variety—customers want choice. It's our job to offer the top, most secure coins."

The addition of ETC to Coinsquare comes shortly after the Ethereum Foundation announced a significant donation to the ETC Cooperative, the community building arm of Ethereum Classic, to further grow the ETC ecosystem. The influx of investment into the ETC ecosystem means strong potential for future ETC blockchain use cases and shows alignment with Coinsquare's vision of becoming a multi-faceted 21st century financial institution.

"Ethereum Classic and Coinsquare share a lot of similarities, chief among them a commitment to building multi-faceted organizations that solve real-world problems," said Thomas Jankowski, Chief Digital and Growth Officer of Coinsquare. "As we move forward on our global vision and forthcoming EU expansion, we're happy to be working with high quality projects like ETC."
