Will Coinbase delist ETC in 2019? Place your bets on Augur...

A new prediction market on the Augur (REP) platform has provoked a major debate in the crypto community. Users can now bet on whether they believe that Coinbase will delist Ethereum Classic (ETC) by the end of 2019.

The recent 51 percent attack on the ETC network led to the loss of a significant amount of funds, although the price of ETC wasn't affected as negatively as might have been expected. Many have started to speculate about the future of the crypto, in the wake of this potential damage to its reputation.

Users of decentralized prediction platform Augur can now back up their speculations on the fate of ETC with real capital, placing ETH bets on the outcome of "Will Coinbase, Inc (coinbase.com) delist ETC trading pairs on the Consumer exchange before Jan 1, 2020 12:00AM UTC?". 

The bet has drawn the attention of Cornell professor and crypto commentator Emin Gun Sirer, who described it as an "assassination market for ETC". This is a reference to the infamous markets on Augur where users can bet on the murder of President Trump and other leading public figures.

Sirer seemed to think that the apparent lack of security on the Ethereum Classic network would eventually force the leading crypto broker to delist ETC, in order to protect its own reputation, although others believed that it wouldn't take any action unless it actually lost money directly.

Of course they will delist ETC coz they don`t care about the users
13 Jan, 2019 - 06:43
They newer thought about users. Coinbase sucks
13 Jan, 2019 - 19:53
That's funny how Coinbase is mentioned in every news headline about ETC attack but don't want to help them out with that problem.
13 Jan, 2019 - 09:45
Heh, funny thing you know ...

In accordance with many news and articles I can assert that Coinbase will delist all normal currencies and leave only shitcoins.
13 Jan, 2019 - 19:03
They already have only shitcoins, all the users see it
13 Jan, 2019 - 19:13
Coinbase made a fail deed first and now it thinks for ETH delisting. It should better check every project they connected and increase their safety
13 Jan, 2019 - 19:18
Coinbase activity is getting worse. I don't understand how they still have the clients because I left it for several months ago when I found about the insider trading.
13 Jan, 2019 - 19:45
As for me Coinbase will not change its fraud activity. For Coinbase the money stealing is more convenient than to provide a good service for the traders.
13 Jan, 2019 - 20:13
Coinbase is ready to do everything to attract the attention of crypto market. I hope that in 2019 people will stop cooperation with this fraud.
13 Jan, 2019 - 20:55
Coinbase is a scam and it will do everything to make a hype. If it's necessary - it will release the news about delisting all the currencies. The main is to attract the market attention.
13 Jan, 2019 - 21:40
Coinbase is so unpredictable that it’s hard to talk about clarity and stability ... I will probably refrain from using this exchange for some time
13 Jan, 2019 - 22:08
Coinbase provides the terrible services and I can't say that it's a reliable exchange. After the last news about the insider trading I've lost the interest and desire to trade there.
13 Jan, 2019 - 22:46
When will Coinbase delist everything? lol
14 Jan, 2019 - 09:55
Coinbase has undermined its already bad reputation
14 Jan, 2019 - 19:16
Knowing that Coinbase is so unpredictable and they do what they want to do.. that's quite possible.
things turn out as usual
14 Jan, 2019 - 19:48
Coinbase is only cares to attract the users attention with the aim to steal their money.
17 Jan, 2019 - 21:25
In my view, only Coinbase is blame for the loss of funds, since it hasn't think earlier about taking care of their safety.
20 Jan, 2019 - 18:30
it's better to answer the question - will Coinbase kill itself this year ?
because it's not serious to accept the scam to the crypto market
20 Jan, 2019 - 19:30
Now all the blame will be shoved on Ethereum, but in this situation Coinbase is to blame only.
20 Jan, 2019 - 21:20
But I think that Coinbase should have foreseen this situation. If ethereum was unsafe, why it would be necessary to add it?
