ICE’s cryptocurrency platform, Bakkt, continues its expansion by adding Ethereum (ETH) services to its customers.
Shortly after becoming a publicly traded company, Bakkt Holdings announced that its customers will also be able to interact with the second largest cryptocurrency.
Owned and operated by Intercontinental Exchange, Bakkt Holdings is among the largest regulated cryptocurrency platforms, providing Bitcoin services to its customers. Your portfolio of available digital assets will soon double as the company announced at the beginning of November 5th.
Bakkt will allow its customers to buy, sell, ship, store and spend Ethereum’s native token – ether (ETH). In addition, they will be able to send ETH to family and friends directly through the Bakkt app.
“At Bakkt, providing flexible opportunities for users to enjoy their digital assets is an important consideration, and adding Ethereum brings a popular and growing cryptocurrency to our roster. Bakkt users have already enjoyed the app’s capabilities to leverage bitcoin, and we are confident that the addition of Ethereum will be a complement to our growing ecosystem of partners and assets.” – commented Bakkt CEO Gavin Michael.
This addition comes just weeks after the company went public on the New York Stock Exchange.
Bakkt continued with impressive news and partnerships soon after, collaborating with Mastercard and Fiserv to improve cryptocurrency adoption, which has rocketed its share prices to new heights.
