Ethereum Classic

Is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain - the classic version preserving untampered history; free from external interference and subjective tampering of transactions

In 2016, a split in the Ethereum community resulted in the creation of two cryptocurrencies. While considerably smaller than Ethereum by market cap, Ethereum Classic has gained traction of its own, becoming the fifth largest cryptocurrency. 

Now the world's largest social trade and investment network, eToro, enables its users to trade Ethereum Classic. 

As the company reports, ETC will be open for investment with a limit placed on the daily invested amount. When it reaches its daily limit it will be closed for new investors and reopened the following day. Closing the investment can be done at any time, eToro team details.

Switcheo announced the official launch of the atomic swaps feature for the Ethereum and NEO blockchains.

From now on, Switcheo users have access to the inter-block exchange of their own token exchange, SWTH and ETH, which allows for the transfer of assets between two markets represented on the trading platform and makes Switcheo the first decentralized exchange that implements this functionality.

A challenge with existing trustless exchanges is that trades are confined to individual blockchains, limiting the market combinations that can be offered to users” says . With the launch of the new feature, users can now trade conveniently between ETH and NEO markets, while retaining full custody of their funds.

According to the developers, the technology of atomic swaps has been known for several years, but is not widely used, since its implementation in practice is quite problematic. Switcheo lead developer John Wong explained that his team spent a lot of time adapting the process to the user's needs and achieved the desired result.
