But with this most recent announcement, it is clear the engineering and coding team at the firm had their heads down, doing their utmost best to add ETC as soon as possible.

On Friday afternoon, Coinbase took to Twitter to break the latest update on this situation. They issued the following tweet to the account’s over one million followers, which sent shockwaves rippling throughout the industry.

In the blog post accompanying the tweet, the exchange revealed that they expect final testing to be completed by August 7th. Following the conclusion of the firm’s extensive rounds of testing, Coinbase will open support for inbound deposits on Coinbase Pro (formerly GDAX) and Coinbase Prime.

It is important to note that trading will not be enabled immediately, with the exchange intending to allocate 24 to 48 hours to explicitly facilitate ETC deposits.
