Bittrex Will Add Fiat Pairs to Ripple and Ethereum Classic

Starting from August 20, users of the US exchange will be able to directly buy and sell altcoins for the US dollar.

The large American cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex is expanding the number of fiat pairs. Starting from August 20, the company’s customers will be able to trade Ripple and Ethereum Classic in pairs with the US dollar.

Representatives of the platform say that over time, they will add other digital money in pairs to the fiat currency. The company will gradually provide this service to users from different countries.

The support of fiat pairs with bitcoin, ether, Tether and TrueUSD appeared on the US exchange in May 2018. Bittrex is on the 24th place in the list of the largest cryptocurrency trading platforms.
