It seems that coinbase may have made this early announcement of their intention to list ETC in the coming months to avoid any kind of speculation of inside trading which marred their integration of Bitcoin Cash last December when it's price hit a high of $8,500 on Coinbase and its GDAX service compared to its trading price of $3,500 on other exchanges.
The company said that once it has reached the final testing phase for integrating the cryptocurrency, it will announce a concrete launch date.

It is now the 18th most valuable digital currency and its market cap of approximately $1.5 billion is dwarfed by that of Ethereum ($53.3 billion) and of Bitcoin ($117.8 billion).
Not to forget, the Binance Coin [BNB] which was added against ETC on Binance today has seen an increment of 10.87% since the past 24 hours. Considering the markets recent bearish performance, where most of the coins are bleeding, this is a huge achievement for Ethereum Classic.
