How to buy XRP

XRP

XRP is the token of Ripple, a technology that acts as both a cryptocurrency and a payment network. XRP offers financial institutions the fastest, most reliable option for sourcing liquidity on demand. Another important use case of XRP is that it can be sent directly without needing a central intermediary, making it a convenient instrument in bridging two different currencies quickly and efficiently. You can buy and sell XRP for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade XRP for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade XRP to CAD based on the XRP price.

Co-founded by Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb, Ripple – the technology that XRP is a token of – was first released in 2012. As it’s most popular use case, XRP is a digital asset built for payments. It is the native digital asset on the XRP Ledger – an open-source, permissionless and decentralized blockchain technology that can settle transactions in 3-5 seconds. XRP can be sent directly without needing a central intermediary, making it a convenient instrument in bridging two different currencies quickly and efficiently.

You may want to consider buying XRP if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Pay people anywhere in the world without an intermediary having to process the transaction

Pay content creators for their service by making an XRP donation

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
