Using an inert electrode (most often Pt) allows the half of the cell to facilitate reduction/oxidation when the solution is fully aqueous. Electrons will be transferrable on the surface of the electrode. If the electrode is involved in the half cell with the solution (solid copper and aqueous), then we have no need to use the Pt.
