Thus, as detailed by cryptocoinsnews.com, the Bitcoin.de development team has revealed in an email to its clients that it is set to add Ethereum trading in the upcoming weeks. In an interview with bitcoinblog.de, an employee of BItcoin.de stats that the company has come to a decision to integrate Ethereum due to the overall rise in demand toward alternative cryptocurrencies.
According to the announcement, "initially, there was no demand for altcoins. For a long time the second place in the list of cryptocurrencies was occupied by Litecoin, but with the advent of Ethereum everything changed, and the demand for altcoins began to grow rapidly".
