Why EOS (EOS) And Ripple (XRP) May Never End Up On Coinbase

EOS (EOS) and Ripple (XRP) are both popular cryptocurrencies with a large following in the crypto community. Recently, when Coinbase announced that it was going to list Ethereum Classic (ETC) in the coming months, EOS (EOS) and Ripple (XRP) fans quickly took to Twitter and other social media platforms to express their disappointment over this decision.
