We wanted to provide some clarity to Coinbase customers who are following the current discussion in the Ethereum community regarding ETH (Ethereum) and ETC (Ethereum Classic).

Coinbase launched support for ETH after last week’s hard fork in the Ethereum network. Since launch, Coinbase has exclusively supported transactions and trading in ETH — not ETC. All Coinbase customers’ ETH is 100% secured in hot and cold storage, per our usual secure storage procedures. Coinbase customers may continue to buy, sell, send, and store ETH on Coinbase.

At this time, Coinbase has no plans to support ETC, although we will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate customer demand. Please do not attempt to send ETC to your Coinbase account.

GDAX customers, please see our corresponding update.
