Today's Crypto News July 27th 2016
Good morning Steemians! There is quite a few interesting things to report today in the world of crypto currency.
Coinbase recently has added Ethereum (ETH) to it's exchange and has also expanded it's operations with its launch in Australia. This seems to be a step in the right direction for the Australian government as it's views on crypto haven't always been very welcoming.
In other news it looks like the Ethereum foundation can't seem to catch a break. After the "successful" hardfork in Ethereums code to undo the DAO attack in which $50m USD worth of ETH was stolen, it's given birth to another crypto currency Ethereum Classic (which is Ethereum pre hardforked) which is now catching momentum and trading on most major exchanges such as Kraken (announced this morning), Poloniex, and Bittrex. A statement from Vitalik can be found here. http://www.coindesk.com/ethereum-vitalik-buterin-classic-blockchain/
