XRP Is Now Live and Trading on Coinbase's Consumer App
Coinbase is adding XRP to its retail platforms, allowing all customers in select jurisdictions access to the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
On Thursday, the company, which already offers retail consumers access to bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, ethereum classic, litecoin, USDC, zcash, Brave’s Basic Attention Token, the 0x protocol token and withdrawals of bitcoin cash SV, announced it would be adding XRP to coinbase.com, as well as its Android and iOS apps.
“Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store XRP. Please note that inbound transfers and many sends require the specification of an XRP destination tag,” the blog post noted.
The cryptocurrency was first added to its professional trading platform, Coinbase Pro, earlier this week, and is already available for full trading on the exchange.
While most Coinbase customers will immediately have access to the cryptocurrency, U.K. and New York residents will not be able to buy or trade XRP.
