US-based, heavily-backed digital asset platform Bakkt said it will start supporting ethereum (ETH) alongside bitcoin (BTC) “soon.”
Their clients will be able to buy, sell, hold, and send ETH, by using Bakkt App. Institutional clients can also choose the Bakkt Warehouse for custody of ethereum, they added.
“Bakkt users have already enjoyed the app’s capabilities to leverage bitcoin and we are confident that our addition of Ethereum will be a complement to our growing ecosystem of partners and assets,” Bakkt CEO Gavin Michael was quoted as saying.
