Three of the major cryptocurrencies were integrated by Yahoo and can now be bought and sold on the platform. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) are all available to trade on Yahoo Finance.
Surprisingly – Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Ripple (XRP) were not included even though they actually rank higher than Litecoin.
“The Virus Is Spreading!”
According to a one crypto-enthusiast, this means that the next step in mass cryptocurrency adoption has begun.
“You can now buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin on Yahoo Finance. THE VIRUS IS SPREADING.”
Some users complain about the apparent overlook of the coin market ranking, but the fact remains: this is another big step towards popularising cryptocurrency.
The overall adoption is affected by the stance various governments have towards cryptocurrency. With some still condemning crypto, the power is in users’ hands.
“What can we do? Take action. Write your Congressman; it sounds silly [but] while they are still in power, make them work. Go into your bank and demand that they allow crypto transactions. If they say no, ask them to recommend a bank that will. Demand the credit card companies to allow crypto payments.” – John McAfee.
