A few weeks back, LBX added Ripple (XRP) to the list of cryptocurrencies offered for trading. At that time, LBX stated that it would add cryptocurrencies regularly to its list of offerings. While Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a pre-fork version of Ethereum (ETH) network, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is the forked version of Bitcoin network.

Ethereum Classic supporters point out that it contains untampered history of the Ethereum blockchain, while Bitcoin Cash support claim that it represents the true vision of the Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
