Bitstamp introduces XRP/BTC trading pair

Bitstamp Ltd, is today launching the XRP/BTC trading pair on its exchange. A digital asset that is native to the Ripple Consensus Ledger, XRP can now be traded with BTC, USD and EUR.

Of all the digital assets on the market, XRP is unique in that it can be used as a bridge currency for real-time settlement, allowing for the efficient exchange of value across borders.

And if any further excuse to start trading were required, we will be offering the following fee schedule for XRP/BTC trades in order to get things off to the best possible start:
    • 0% fees until 28 February 2017;
    • 50% discount on fees until 31 March.

    As of midnight on 1 May 2017, the XRP fee schedule will revert to normal.

    Full trading functionalities open today at 2.00 pm GMT, which is when the clock will start ticking on the fee discounts available. If you’re unsure about how to buy XRP on Bitstamp, check out Ripple’s handy guide here: “How to buy XRP on Bitstamp”.
