Coinbase Global (NASDAQ: COIN), a cryptocurrency exchange, announced that its digital wallet will no longer support the native tokens associated with Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Ripple’s XRP Ledger and Stellar; that change will take effect on Monday, Dec. 5, 2023. The company did note that users with balances will still be able to withdraw their money after that date. According to the announcement, the exchange made the decision based on low usage of the digital coins and tokens, which gained public awareness during the 2017 cryptocurrency bull market. Despite the low use, XRP is the seventh-largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $19.6 billion and 24-hour trade volume of almost $1 billion U.S., according to data from CoinGecko. Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, both of which are forked or altered versions of Bitcoin and Ethereum, the two most popular cryptocurrencies, have seen a significant decline in value this year.
