Ethereum Classic (ETC) is the best performing top 10 cryptocurrency Friday as the asset is due to list on all of China’s major exchanges.

A series of announcements this week means ETC will debut on OKCoin July 15, while Huobi this week also confirmed it would open trading from Wednesday.

The two join BTCC, which added the coin to its books at the end of June.

The news has served to stabilize ETC’s price this week, which made up for ground lost in Monday’s cross-crypto plunge while other top 10 coins produced flat growth.

The price signs are encouraging for the ETC community, with major spokesman and supporter Barry Silbert having chosen to quit Twitter several weeks ago.

Silbert had repeatedly published positive stats and news about the asset, which served to improve its reputation and likely uptake.

A Twitter survey from ETC’s official account meanwhile quizzed followers on whether they would like to see Coinbase add trading functionality.

18 hours after it launched, responses are 75 percent in favor of the move.
