Bakkt’s offering and plans to add Ethereum
Bakkt is not mainly a trading platform for crypto as they offer a variety of services. Users can take advantage of the monthly BTC futures contracts, crypto payments via Visa debit card and Bakkt card. The company was launched in 2018, is headquartered in Alpharetta, GA, and is also listed on Nasdaq with the ticker name BKKT.
Their recent plan to add Ethereum to their platform was mainly because of the recent survey that they conducted. We all know that Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most popular and largest coins in the market right now. And they are very popular too. By adding Ethereum to their platform, Bakkt will be offering one more option so that users can spend and buy digital assets from their platform.
The CEO of the platform also said, “At Bakkt, providing flexible opportunities for users to enjoy their digital assets is a top consideration, and adding Ethereum brings a popular and growing cryptocurrency to our roster.” It will also help them speed up growth as a lot of people are into Ethereum, and they will consider coming to the platform.
