So you want to buy Ripple XRP, but you don’t now how to get it and you aren’t sure where it’s sold. Well fear not, it’s quite simple.
1.) Buy Ripple Directly From An Exchange.
There are many big exchanges that will allow you to deposit money in your trading account, and purchase crypto currencies such as Ripple directly from the cash you have in your account. Three of the biggest ones are;
2.) Trade Other Cryptos You Own For Ripple
Ok, so you aren’t a part of one of those exchanges and they are taking forever to get your account approved. Sound familiar? Well, you don’t need to buy Ripple directly with cash. Your other options are to trade currencies that you already have for Ripple on any exchange that supports both the crypto you want to trade, and Ripple. Now not all exchanges will support a direct trade of the coin you own for XRP. You might need to first turn your NEO into BTC, and then turn BTC into Ripple, for example. But as long as both the coin you own, and Ripple are on the same exchange, you can easily get Ripple.
Here’s a list of the exchanges (and associated pairs) that trades for Ripple are happening on.
When you get to that page, you’ll see a chart that looks similar to the image shown below.
- In the first red column, is a list of the market places that you can trade your crypto for Ripple.
- In the second red column, is the most currency pair that’s being traded on that market place.
- In the third red column, is the amount of money traded on that exchange, in that pair, in the last 24 hours.
You can easily see that on Bithumb (a Korean exchange) the Ripple/Korean Won (XRP/KRW) is the most heavily traded pair in the last 24 hours. Next is people trading BTC for Ripple (BTC/XRP) on Poloniex, which is actually where I purchased my Ripple.
Alternatively, here is a direct link to Ripple’s own website where they reveal the exchanges in which you can buy Ripple.
So hopefully, this info helps you to acquire your first XRP tokens and you’ll make a million bucks with them!
