On 5 August, the transactions of Ethereum Classic [ETC] touched figures of 65,560, the highest seen this month. The cryptocurrency community assumes that the surge is due to the August 3 announcement of Coinbase being in the final phase of the Ethereum Classic test. Soon after, it is said that the cryptocurrency is added to the exchange platform.
The highest increase in the volume of daily transactions of Ethereum Classic occurred on 5 March, with the volume of transactions reaching 101.933. It is said that the peak occurred due to the ETC – Callisto. The second highest volume of daily transactions took place on July 29th. Transactions during this period increased to 85, 587.
There were rumors about the listing of ETC several days before the official announcement of Coinbase. Earlier in June, TechCruch had reported their conjectures about it.
Ethereum Classic on their official Twitter said:
"Kill him with the volume of transactions".
The announcement on the ETC support on Coinbase has also led to a hike in the price of cryptocurrency. ETC jumped to 14.03%, trading at $ 16.57 with a market capitalization of around $ 1.7 billion within 24 hours of the announcement.
Twitterati, Ttomlliwynnad commented:

I know where my long wait is. "
