Ripple (XRP) Wallet – Best Wallets For Ripple By:Harsh AgrawalIn:Ripple (XRP)Last Updated:5/12/2018 (284 Comments) Ripple (XRP)is currently the second highest cryptocurrencyin the market by market cap. In the past month, the price has gone up by +977% & people who have invested in XRP are making a great profit. If you are planning to buy Ripple (XRP), you may have a couple questions: Where should you store XRP?What wallet supports XRP?How to buy XRP?Read new article: Best Websites to buy XRP (Ripple from. Here are the exchanges from which you can get Ripple : Gate.io: The preferred exchange where you can get XRP using BTC, ETH, QTUM, and USDT. This is the cheapest way to get XRP. Buy some BTC and transfer it to Gate.ioand then exchange it for XRP.Binance(They are offering limited registrations, so if you able to register then it’s your lucky day)Bitfinex: The most popular exchange with a working mobile app. You can buy using USDT or BTC or ETH.kCEX: If you want to buy XRP directly using your credit/debit card, this is the best solution as of now.Changelly: The fastest way for you to convert BTC or ETH or other cryptos to XRP. Something everyone is loving.Update: I have updated the list of XRP wallets and removed few wallets like Gatehub and one more as a lot of users have complained about losing their funds. At this moment (March 2018), below listed wallets are best we got to store XRP. I use the first one. In this guide, I will help you understand everything you need to start holding XRP. I have also shared some of the best XRP wallets in the market that are safe, secure, and trusted by other cryptocurrency enthusiasts like you. Let’s start with where can you get XRP… Where can you buy XRP?There are many places from where you can get XRP. The best way is to buy Bitcoin& exchange them for Ripple. Changellyis a  popular website to exchange BTC (or other cryptocurrencies) for XRP. Personally, I’m a big fan of Changelly.Another method is to use an exchange like Binance& buy XRP using Bitcoin or USD.You can also buy XRP from Bitfinexand BitstampOther exchanges which support buying Ripple are Kraken, Coinone(Korean), Koinex(India), Bitso, and Coincheck.Once you have finalized the way you want to get XRP, the next thing to figure out is where to store them.   Also see: Monero Wallet: How to Create & Use Monero Wallet Address OnlineHere are exchanges from where you can get XRP: Gate.ioBinanceBitfinexXRP Wallets: Best Wallet For Ripple CryptocurrencyBefore I share about top wallets for XRP, you need to know one important thing: Unlike Bitcoin wallets which are free, Ripple wallets require you to have 20XRP to book your wallet address. So if you add 1000 XRP to your Ripple wallet, 20XRP will be used to book the wallet address. This is one reason you don’t want to use multiple wallets for XRP (unless required). Pick the right wallet from day one so that you don’t end up losing 20XRP on various wallet addresses. Do remember, there are various kinds of cryptocurrency wallets & you can read more about them here. Ledger Nano S: Ledger Nano Sis a hardware wallet that has recently added support for XRP. Being a hardware wallet, it is one of the best ways to store your cryptocurrency as it offers great security, ease of use, and you can carry it with you anywhere. I recommend Ledger Nano S as it supports many popular cryptocurrencies including: Dash, BTC, ETH/ETC, Stratis, Zcash, and now it supports XRP. You should order it from the official site here& it will take 4-7 days to have it delivered to your doorstep. Here is a video demo of Ledger Ripple wallet: Once you have it, you can check out our Ledger Nano S video libraryto learn how to start using the Ledger Nano S. Atomic XRP Wallet Atomic Wallet is a free non-custodial desktop application that supports XRP along with other 300+ cryptocurrencies. It’s noteworthy that Atomicenables users to not only manage their XRP, but also exchange XRP via a built-in exchange engine powered by Changelly and buy XRP for a bank card. These features are provided in a simple interface protected by a mnemonic seed. The seed is generated after the first launch of the application and requires you to store it safely. You fully control your funds, and your private keys become encrypted on your device and never leave it.Download Atomic Wallet Toast Wallet Toast Wallet is a free open-source XRP wallet which anyone can use. The creators of this wallet say “simple enough for your grandma but safe enough for a Swiss banker”. The good thing about this wallet is that it is a non-hosted wallet where you are always in control of your private keys. As of now, Toast wallet is available on Android, iOS, Windows & Mac. Exarpy Exarpy is another non-hosted Ripple wallet which is accessible from any web browser. Using this wallet you can store/receive/send any amount of Ripple without any third party involvement. But this wallet is paid wallet and charges 0.025 XRP per transaction and this includes the Ripple network’s fee too. If you have any more questions regarding Exarpy then you can read their FAQ section herebefore getting started. Gate.io: Gate.io is not a typical XRP wallet but it’s a full-fledged exchange. They offer a mobile app that makes it easier for us to send/receive and also trade XRP coins from the mobile phone. They are one of the few high-quality exchanges that are currently accepting new registrations. Create free account on Gate.io Binance: Binance is a fast growing exchange that started in the mid of the 2017 year and is rapidly adopting many new cryptocurrencies for its users. If you want to get XRP right now, you can use Binance to get an XRP wallet. However, you should not store your XRP for more than 1-2 days on an exchange (any exchange) as exchanges can shut down or go into issues at any time and put you at risk of losing your stored coins. When I needed to get ahold of XRP urgently, I used Binance to convert my bitcoins into XRP & stored them in my Binance wallet. Another good thing while buying and storing your XRP from Binance is that you can claim your 50% discount on the trading fee when you exchange BTC or ETH to XRP. You can, later on, transfer these XRP to the Ledger Nano S (or any other hardware wallet that supports XRP). Check out BinanceWith time, I expect more popular wallets to integrate XRP & make it easier for us to store Ripple. However, for now, these are the top Ripple wallets that you can start using right away. If you are someone who is investing in cryptocurrencies, I would recommend you to just order Ledger Nano S hardware walletwhich ensures that you remain in total control of all of your coins. Note: Binance & Gate both are exchanges that buy/sell XRP and have their inbuilt exchange wallet too. We don’t recommend you to hold your XRP in these inbuilt wallets for more than 1-2 days assuming you are lucky enough on those days. So use these exchanges as wallets for a long term at your own risk. Also, Toast Wallet and Exarpy wallets for Ripple are suggested by our community members and we have not used both of them yet but they look legit enough after a litmus test. Have a question about storing XRP? Let me know in the comments section below. Also, what’s your prediction for Ripple in the coming days? Like this post? Don’t forget to share it!

ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 20, 2018 at 9:04 pm No, the only crypto to crypto purchases is allowed. ReplyHaider says January 9, 2018 at 11:37 pm I agree with you – will spread to some of those coins like TRX KMD and NEO, however I still need a wallet for my XRP – there is no ledger until march and people have had their ripple stolen from coinpayments. ReplySunilkumar says January 10, 2018 at 4:35 am XRP won’t go beyond 12-18$ in its whole life.. and in 2018 max it already touched 4$ and fallen down… But if anyone invest in other currency like ETH or BCH or BTC… then they surely going to be rich one day ReplySunilkumar says January 10, 2018 at 4:40 am From Binance it’s tough to withdraw your ripple or any currency if you are not Chinese… it’s tough…you need Chinese phone number for 2FA.. So be careful and get proper information on how to withdraw from binnance. ReplySooo Yaaa says January 15, 2018 at 11:38 am really? I’ve moved ETH pretty easily from there ReplyFrank says January 11, 2018 at 9:53 pm In your article you said not to store XRP on an exchange for more than a day or two but you also said you can buy XRP on Binance and store them in their wallet. Is their wallet different than their exchange? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 12, 2018 at 2:24 pm No, they have their inbuilt exchange wallet only. And as a general rule don’t keep in exchange wallets for too long if you have significant amounts!! ReplyOz says January 12, 2018 at 12:16 am Ok, So if i open an account on Gate.io. That one works both as an exchange and Wallet ? Did I understand that correctly. ? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 12, 2018 at 2:19 pm Gate.io has a wallet but it exchange’s wallet that doesn’t give your private keys. So if you are having significant amount then store it on Ledger Nano S. Replyakbar says January 12, 2018 at 1:45 am Hi guys I create a wallet on “exarpy.com” but I haven’t buy ripple with this account because I don’t trust this account .please help me . thank you ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 12, 2018 at 2:16 pm When you don’t trust why are you wasting time. Register on Binanceand buy it from there in exchange of BTC. Replypramod says January 19, 2018 at 3:19 am binance is not allowing new users…any other options available? ReplyGigi says January 19, 2018 at 3:50 pm Yes Binance accepts new users everyday. There is a small window each day where they accept new users. ReplyMo says January 12, 2018 at 2:35 am Hi. I want to to buy Ripple for investment gain. I have looked at Iq options, and cinsidering buying from there. But I dont understand the wallet consept? do i need wallet if I am buying from IQ option, and wich wallet should I use?

How can I transfer my ripple from the paper wallet to my Ledger without high fees of 20 xrp which add up to about $40 usd. Great article. Thx.

Pls read https://coinsutra.com/20-xrp-ripple-fee-reserve/ ReplyKavitha Ravinuthala says January 13, 2018 at 7:43 am I am using toast wallet for storing ripple.is toast wallet safe? ReplyHomayoun says January 13, 2018 at 11:24 am Hi Sudhir, thanks for your investement. I appreciate your work! As of now Ledger is sold out as a wallet until end of March. Should I wait and then buy it from the official site? Ebay sells it for twice the price, would you still recomment to buy it then there for now? If not can you recommend another wallet for storing XRP? Thanks Sudhir! Best ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 13, 2018 at 11:41 am Buy it from official website only..Many scams going on You can use this wallet until then exarpy.com. I have not used it but recommended by a community member Akhbar, in the comments above. ReplySayani says January 13, 2018 at 11:03 pm Hi, Following your suggestions I have opened an account with Gatehub .net to keep Ripple XPR in Ripple Wallet. Although I have been able to open an account, but when uploading Bank statement and Passport scanned JPEG files I am getting below error: “We need the following documents to complete identity verification. Please note that only documents written in Latin letters are supported.” Any idea what is wrong? and what should I do get my Identity document verified to start using Gatehub wallet? Please help with your instructions on this. Thank you. ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 15, 2018 at 1:07 pm Gatehub is different and Gate.io is different. Go for Gate.io Replymeho says January 29, 2018 at 10:42 am gatehub is buggy shit with criminal fee… Don’t use that shit ReplyRobert F Fahy says January 14, 2018 at 11:06 pm I have my XRP’s in a Ripple wallet on my laptop. Can I access that wallet from another one of my laptops? My concern is what happens if my laptop crashes for some reason? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 15, 2018 at 12:55 pm You must have saved your seed keys or private keys of Ripple. That will help you access Ripple in case your wallet crashes. ReplyRobert F Fahy says January 15, 2018 at 7:19 pm Thank you. I have them just in case. But I guess the answer is the wallet can only be accessed from the laptop where it was installed. Correct? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 16, 2018 at 1:39 pm As long as you have the seed or private key you can restore your wallet anywhere you want and that too any number of times. ReplyJ. Lowell says January 15, 2018 at 2:07 am I recommend to sell bitcoins on liviacoins .com It allows to get paid directly to credit card, cash transfer, or bank transfer. ReplyGagan says January 15, 2018 at 1:11 pm Sir what laptop wallet do you recommend to store ripple. Please assist as i have a few that i would like to save and ledger is not available.

Thanks ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 18, 2018 at 2:33 pm These are not proper wallets. Use wallets like Ledger Nano S for significant holdings ReplyYu Chi Shing says January 18, 2018 at 12:55 pm Hey, what should I do and store XRP before Ledger Nano S delivery arrive? Thanks ReplySayani says January 18, 2018 at 2:53 pm Nano hardware wallet is good if we become a big investor gradually, bur for Indian starters it is too costly.

Now on Gatehub,but verifications are pending 5 weeks…so i don’t want to use this Ripple wallet but i want to send it direct from liteb.eu to my Nano Ledger. Is this allowed or not ? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 22, 2018 at 10:59 am Yes, you can send to Ledger nano S. Send more than 20 XRP atleast when transferring for the first time.

ReplyHarsh Agrawalsays January 23, 2018 at 11:55 am @David You can restore to a new wallet using seed key. ReplyBud says January 24, 2018 at 3:40 am Already started using gatehub wallet for my xrp based on previous posts I have read. Guess it will have to do. But I do have a Ledger Nano S coming in a couple of months for other cryptos. My question is: what is the best way to turn my xrp that is in my gatehub wallet into the most USD possible? ReplySudhir Khatwani says January 24, 2018 at 1:22 pm Bitfinex is good for that. ReplyNitin says February 5, 2018 at 1:21 am I did not understand why one should not hold for more than 2 days when we buy it from a trusted crypto exchange like coindelta/koinex ? Why wallets are so necessary ? ReplySudhir Khatwani says February 5, 2018 at 11:03 am Because when you store any coin on any centralized exchange you don’t control your funds as these exchanges don’t give your private keys. Check this out to find more about it- https://coinsutra.com/bitcoin-private-key/ ReplyNitin says February 6, 2018 at 10:02 am The link you provided says only about bitcoin. What about ripples bought through Coindelta/Koinex ?

ReplyDomC says February 10, 2018 at 2:08 am Hello, first timer Crypto trader…. your site/posts are VERY helpful btw Question… I setup a Kraken account, just making sure I understand their platform correctly (since they are very delayed to get Q&A back to me)… I can move USD$ from my US bank account, purchase XRP, move it to my Ledger… then when I want to sell it, move it back to my Kraken account to sell it, then wire the $USD back to my bank account? Is that correct? Does Gate.io or other platforms/exchanges do the same ? Thanks. DomC ReplySudhir Khatwani says February 10, 2018 at 3:34 pm Yes, that’s correct and Gate also allows USD. ReplyDavid says February 27, 2018 at 4:23 am Thanks for the post. I went ahead and bought a Ledger Nano S. Just got notification that it shipped early today. I was initially told it wouldn’t be shipped until late March. Do you think it will ever support Tezzies? I assume a firmware update is needed for that? How can we be certain that the update is safe? Couldn’t someone hack Ledger Shop, issue a malicious update and steal everyone’s tokens? Or, an insider could do it. Just trying to think of every possible worst scenario. ReplySudhir Khatwani says February 27, 2018 at 5:50 pm You have the seed or keys if they do it also they won’t be able to do anything by looting Ledger Shop…nope no insider…however, you always need to exercise highest common sense and good self-education while dealing with crypto. You will find good starters video on Ledger Nano S on our Youtube channel, do visit-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC17N6IKrH_-kn7uhjQi-qDA ReplyKapil Sharmasays March 4, 2018 at 7:07 pm Hello, Amazing Blog for Crypto information Is there any transaction fee, if we transfer our crypto coins to ledger wallet. If yes, then How much it cost me total if I I transfer 100 XRP to Ledger wallet. For example: I have a account with koinex if and I transfer 100 XRP from there to ledger wallet they charge a transaction fee. Similarly if I transfer ripple from Ledger wallet to koinex wallet again to sell. Will it cost again ? ReplySudhir Khatwani says March 5, 2018 at 5:49 pm Yes, every transaction has a fee minimum fee I guess is 0.01 XRP, plus 20 XRP will be used by Ledger address, read here for more details-https://coinsutra.com/20-xrp-ripple-fee-reserve/ Replyvince says March 4, 2018 at 10:51 pm I understand a fee of 20 XRP exists for the creation of a paper wallet or a Ledger Nano S wallet. Is that a ONE TIME fee or does it occur every time an XRP purchase is moved to that same wallet? Finally, is there also another 20 XRP fee when the coins are then moved FROM the paper wallet or the Nano and BACK to an exchange? Thanks in advance! ReplyVince says March 4, 2018 at 11:04 pm After further reading, I understand that it is a ONE TIME fee imposed by Ripple. It is applied to the initialization of every Ripple wallet. Hence, create one and use it for all XRP holdings. Correct? ReplySudhir Khatwani says March 5, 2018 at 5:44 pm Yes, correct ReplySudhir Khatwani says March 5, 2018 at 5:45 pm 20 XRP per address initialization, so yes in both Ledger and paper wallet also. ReplyLee Eidesays March 7, 2018 at 11:39 am I really would appreciate help. I have about 850 units of XRP on Ripple wallet version 0.7.0 and when enter my secret seed, the address it generates is not recognized by their system. It was previously. I have checked my balance on this wallet many times before and all the coins were there. No their system says the account number is invalid. Where do I go for customer support for this wallet? I cannot find any kind of support on their site. ReplySudhir Khatwani says March 8, 2018 at 6:38 pm Doesn’t looks like a legit wallet. Can you give the wallet link from where you picked it up. ReplyRobert F Fahy says March 11, 2018 at 4:14 am I struggled through the firmware upgrade and when it was through processing it asked me for my reconfiguration phrase. I have my list of 24 words, it asked for 12 of them. I put them in and it responded that they were invalid. That’s ridiculous! Now what do I do? ReplySubu says March 14, 2018 at 11:39 pm Hello, There is an option in Gate.io for Wallet Services and they describe it as ‘Gate.io uses cold storage and a hot wallet, so your sending address for a digital asset will not be the same as your deposit address. Please do not send your asset from Gate.io directly if the sending address is relevant to the transaction, for example, when you are participating in ICO and the assets will be sent back to the sending address’ I have couple of questions on this: 1. Does it make sense to buy XRP from Gate.io and move it to the Wallet for storage for a considerable amount of time ? (2-4 weeks) 2. What does this actually mean ? ‘Sending address for a digital asset will not be the same as your deposit address. Please do not send your asset from Gate.io directly if the sending address is relevant to the transaction’ Appreciate your help. ReplyMarksays March 19, 2018 at 2:54 am Thank you for your information. I am interested in buying, selling in short term. Do any of these wallets hold USD. ReplySudhir Khatwani says March 23, 2018 at 12:32 pm No, it doesn’t. You can hold USD on exchanges only like CEX.io etc to buy/sell XRP.

The wallet I have only asks for Ripple address and amount. Would I still get it in Binance without a tag? ReplySudhir Khatwani says June 14, 2018 at 6:25 pm Kindly check this, if it helps ReplyPaul Pueysays June 23, 2018 at 4:50 am Hello, would you please consider adding Edge Wallet to this list of XRP wallets. We’re a well respected company and team that’s been in crypto since 2014. Originally as Airbitz for bitcoin only, and now as Edge with a multicurrency wallet option. ReplySudhir Khatwani says June 23, 2018 at 6:47 pm We are looking into it and might list you in another article soon. ReplyX says September 22, 2018 at 6:13 pm In your article you say: The best way is to buy Bitcoin & exchange them for Ripple. Why do this rather than just converting USD into Ripple (XRP) ReplySudhir Khatwani says September 24, 2018 at 2:37 pm Yes, you can buy in USD from CEX.

AdvertiseHow To Convert Bitcoin (BTC) To Ripple (XRP) Easily By:Sudhir KhatwaniIn:Ripple (XRP)Last Updated:24/09/2018 (3 Comments) Recently, the popular cryptocurrency Ripple went berserk, surging to newer heights. So much so that people all over the world wanted to buy it and book profits. For those of you who don’t know what Ripple is, it is a cryptocurrency famously dubbed as the currency for banks. However, as most of you know, cryptocurrencies and banks don’t go hand in hand, which is why this currency was snubbed by most well-informed people. That said, there is no denying the fact that investors made humongous profits from Ripple last year. Ripple (XRP)currently has the third highest market capital in the cryptocurrencyworld. In the past month alone, the prices have gone from $ 0.25 to $ 2.10 and look like it will surge further this year. Because of this hyper rally, Ripple has yet again caught the attention of many investors around the world who are still seeking to invest in it. If you have BTC already, you can use any of the following methods to convert them into XRP. How To Exchange XRP For BTCThere are several ways of exchanging and buying XRP for BTC, but for this write-up, I will only list the ways which we have personally used and are confident about. 1. Changelly(For Instant Exchange) Changelly is popular cryptocurrency swapping exchange which provides you fast access to different cryptocurrencies in exchange for BTC. The best thing – there is no need for a KYC or other lengthy form registrations to use Changelly. However, Changelly requires you to sign up with an email ID, but you can use an alias if you don’t want to reveal your identity. I personally use Changelly for their competitive exchange rates and viewable transaction history for tracking. You will require the following things to get Ripple from Changelly: XRP address where you would like to get your Ripple tokens. (Choose XRP wallet)Some Bitcoinsto exchange for Ripple.Head towards CoinSutra’s Cryptocurrency Exchange – Changellyand follow the steps given in this guide. Note: This guide shows how to buy Ripple in exchange for BTC in a step by step manner, so you need not worry about anything. Register & Convert BTC to Ripple Now 2. Binance Binanceis my favorite cryptocurrency exchangeand the more I say about it, the lesser it feels because of its fabulous service to crypto-space. Binance started from China and concluded its ICO in mid-2017. Since then, it has grown exponentially and is now placed as the numero uno cryptocurrency exchange. It has more than 140 altcoins listed on it which are only increasing. You can also get Ripple from Binanceexchange if you have BTC already. Ripple (XRP) can be bought and exchanged for BTC from Binance in following trade pair and the volume is also pretty decent for huge orders: Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC,Binance also has a mobile app for the people who want to exchange XRP for BTC on the go. Here is a short video walking you through the mobile app’s UI. You need to transfer BTC and then exchange it for XRP. The process is the same as shown in the video above.

But for higher withdrawal limits, you need to submit your documents for KYC. Huobi Pro supports more than 248 cryptocurrency pairs on its platform including Ripple. Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC, XRP/USDT, XRP/HTRegister For Free On Houbi To Convert Ripple 4. Bitfinex Up until Binance came into existence, Bitfinex was the exchange with the highest volume. However, It is still in the top three exchanges in terms of volume. Interestingly, it is also in the top three for providing liquidity for XRP/BTC pair, which means it is an ideal place for anyone to exchange XRP for BTC. The only drawback is that it is not as swift as Changelly or Binance because their registration process and KYC verification typically take 15-20 business days. That’s why if you want to use Bitfinex, prepare well in advance. To get started on Bitfinex, you will need to register, verify your ID, and authenticate yourself for sure. The good thing is, when you get bored with the web version or want to trade on-the-go, you can use Bitfinex’s Androidand iOSmobile apps to convert your BTC to XRP.

How to buy Ripple (XRP) in 3 Simple Steps

Note: If you’re looking to buy Ripple for trading purposes only you may want to check out  Plus500or AvaTradeRipple CFD trading. Keep in mind that when trading CFDs your capital is at risk. What is Ripple?Ripple is a global settlement network, making it easy to transfer nearly any currency to anyone in the world in just seconds.  The Ripple platform has rendered the archaic system of sending money through SWIFT or Western Union obsolete.  At this point, Ripple is focused entirely on working with banks, offering them a more efficient and cost-effective way to send real-time payments around the world. Consider this hypothetical example.  Directly transferring currency inexpensively from Japan to Nicaragua, JPY/NIO isn’t generally feasible.  Instead, an individual or bank will usually trade JPY to USD and then USD to NIO. At each step, the fees add up, making for an expensive way to send money internationally.  By using Ripple, one can trade JPY to XRP (Ripple’s currency) relatively inexpensively, send XRP to the recipient, either an individual who has a Ripple wallet or a bank in Nicaragua, and from there, trade XRP into NIO.  In other words, XRP is the grease that allows any currency to be easily exchanged for any other currency on the Ripple platform. While banks in general have been slow to adopt Ripple, there is no doubt that real time worldwide payments are the future.  The Ripple platform gives banks a huge advantage both over their competition and financially.  Ripple is focused on the “Internet of Value”, meaning that money transfers should move as quickly as information does in the technological age.  With Ripple, there is no reason to pay a fortune and wait days when transferring money globally. Why Are Banks Using Ripple?A few banks have embraced the Ripple platform including, Santander, Axis Bank, Yes Bank, Westpac, Union Credit, NBAD, and UBS, among others.  According to Ripple, banks can save an average of $3.76 per payment by using their protocol.  Considering that banks perform thousands or perhaps millions of transactions every year, this represents a significant savings. If there is one thing that captures the attention of banks, it is how to make more money, while saving more money.  This is why Ripple, or a real time, inexpensive, global settlement network similar to it, has a bright future ahead of it, as they are offering a new way to conduct business that brings financial institutions up to speed in the Internet age. Ripple is lead by Brad Garlinghouse, while the brains behind the scene is David Schwartz, the Chief Cryptographer.  Based out of San Francisco and branching out around the world, the Ripple team has been constantly improving the protocol, while connecting with banks internationally.  Ripple continues to hire top talent from around the world and aims to facilitate the greater majority of international payments worldwide.  As it currently stands, Ripple is one of the most exciting Fintech organizations with their innovative financial platform, as Forbes even includes Ripple in their Fintech 50. How Do I Invest In Ripple?While large scale investors may be able to invest in Ripple directly, most other investors and speculators are limited to investing in XRP.  XRP, Ripple’s native currency, took off in value in 2017 when it went from under $0.01 toover $0.30 a coin.  This huge surge in value is due to both bank adoption and speculative interest.  As it currently stands, Ripple has the third highest market cap behind Bitcoin and Ethereum. XRP allows for seamless financial transactions from any given currency to any other currency with negligible fees.  In a sense, XRP is the reserve currency on the Ripple platform that enables users to trade nearly any currency of choice into XRP and send XRP globally to anyone.  The individual who receives XRP can then trade it for the currency of their choice. Every time any given currency is traded into XRP, liquidity increases, as does the value of XRP, due to greater demand.  In other words, Ripple is attempting to turn XRP into a global reserve currency of such even though it may not seem that way just yet. However, transferring XRP is the easiest and least expensive way to send value over the Ripple protocol.  At some point, it may not make sense to move into any other currency, while instead, simply using XRP exclusively for global payments.  If people and banks from around the world turn their fiat into XRP and collectively decide not to move back into fiat, the price of XRP will no doubt skyrocket. The goal is to turn XRP into a stable currency that doesn’t deviate in value much so banks would be comfortable moving into it without fear of volatility.  As it stands, many banks don’t want anything to do with XRP because it can dramatically change in value overnight or even in seconds.  In order to assist banks and payment providers Ripple has partnered with BitGoto mediate these risks so expect further bank adoption relatively soon. A long-term appreciation in the value of XRP is ultimately the end game strategy for Ripple, as they hold the majority of XRP in existence.  This means that a bet on XRP is a bet on Ripple.  It should be noted that Ripple also offers consulting services to financial institutions and has no problem securing fundingwhen needed.  In other words, it looks like Ripple is likely to be around for a long time. How Many XRP (Ripple coins) Exist?Of the 100 billion XRP tokens in existence, Ripple holds 61 billion of them.  With the company holding the majority of the coins.  In order to build investor confidence, Ripple has locked up 55 billion XRPwith 55 smart contracts.  One by one, each contract, holding 1 billion XRP, expires monthly throughout the course of 54 months. As it currently stands, Ripple has spent about 300 million XRP a month for the past 18 months to handle expenses.  This operational transparency should give skeptical investors a reason to believe that Ripple is in this game long-term and would not benefit by selling off their holdings, thus plummeting the value of XRP. What Are The Advantages Of Ripple?There are a number of advantages that XRP has over other cryptocurrencies, most notably, Ripple is working directly with banks.  While anyone opposed to the banking cartel monopoly may not want to invest in Ripple on principle alone, there is no doubt that Ripple is focused on smart business decisions by making ties with the very corporations that control global finance. Investors who want to capitalize on the hard work Ripple is dedicating to their global settlement network are likely to witness a steady increase in value over the long term by simply holding XRP.  Simply put, buying XRP and forgetting about it could result in 10x or even 100x gains over the long-term. Ripple is fast, with transactions confirming in under four seconds.  In other words, it can be used to purchase every day items, assuming that it is adopted by both merchants and users worldwide.  In addition, Ripple is scalable, as it regularly handles 1,000 transactions a second.  It has even been shown to handle as many transactions as Visa, more than 50,000 transactions a second. What Advantages Does Ripple Have Over Bitcoin?Bitcoin is great, but it isn’t a fast way to exchange value, while Ripple is.  In addition, the cost to send bitcoin has increased significantly as more and more transactions are taking place on the blockchain, while transferring XRP is still relatively inexpensive.  In addition, the Ripple network doesn’t get bogged down by transactionslike bitcoin currently does. The original goal of Ripple was to develop a platform that didn’t consume huge amounts of electricity like the process of mining bitcoin.  In order avoid mining entirely, all 100 billion XRP were “instamined” that inherently has drawbacks to anyone who appreciates the benefits of mining. Many argue that Ripple is centralized, but the company is working hard to change that.  Ripple is becoming increasingly decentralized through validator node diversity on the Ripple Consensus Ledger (RCL).  In fact, Ripple argues that it is more decentralized than bitcoinat this point in time. One of the biggest advantages, at least from an investor’s standpoint, is that Ripple is making connections with the banks around the world, while many see bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as competition to the established financial order.  In other words, banks are far more likely to embrace a protocol like Ripple and its native currency XRP, rather than support bitcoin. What Are Some Drawbacks To Ripple?While XRP has some huge advantages over other cryptocurrencies, some would argue that it is a big brother platform for making global transactions.  Since the original vision of Ripple was focused on allowing everyday people to make global transactions, like remittance payments, inexpensively and quickly, the pivot to focusing exclusively on banks was seen as a turnoff by many.  Anyone who likes the Ripple platform, but doesn’t like Ripple the company may want to use Stellar, a Ripple fork from Jed McCaleb, as it has more of an altruistic vision. As stated before, XRP was created all at once and Ripple owns the greater majority of these tokens.  Even though these coins are locked up in a smart contract and the likelihood of a sell off is small, it is still something to consider.  In a sense, Ripple is the central bank of XRP. Researchers at Purdue University have determined that the Ripple platform has security vulnerabilities.  Due to its open nature, nodes within the network could be subject to attack, preventing some users from accessing funds. Many people may decide not to invest in XRP for personal reasons, especially if they are invested in cryptocurrency because they see cryptocurrency as an escape from the banking cartel and government control.  On the other hand, investors who are looking for profits and don’t see anything wrong with Ripple’s business model have every reason to buy XRP. How to Buy Ripple in 3 Simple StepsStep 1 – Get a Ripple (XRP) walletThe main thing to note when using a wallet to store XRP is to write down the secret key and store it in a secure location.  Better yet, write down the secure key many times and store it in many secure locations.  This secret key will give users access to their wallet no matter what. XRP wallets generally operate the same as Bitcoin wallets, so if you’re not familiar with the differences I suggest watching our Bitcoin Whiteboard Tuesday episode about wallets. It is best to keep your XRP on a hardware wallet for maximum security.  It should be noted that every Ripple wallet must initially be funded with a 20 XRP reserve in order to protect against low level spam attacks. Ledger Nano Sis currently the only reliable hardware wallets for storing XRP and a number of other cryptocurrencies. You can read our review about it here. Toast Walletis a self hosted easy to use wallet that can hold Ripple. The wallet is available for mobile (iOS, Android) and desktop (PC, Mac, Linux). Rippexoffers a desktop wallet for Mac, Windows, and Linux that gives users full functionality.  Here is a guide to seting up the Rippex desktop walletand sending XRP there for storage or trading. Step 2 – Find a Ripple ExchangeThere are several options for buying Ripple today. You can either buy it with fiat currency (i.e. USD, EUR, etc.) or you can trade Bitcoins for Ripple on specific exchanges. Invest in Ripple via a trading fundPlatforms like eTorodon’t give you actual access to your coins and you can’t send coins from eToro to other people. The only thing that can be done with the platform is to buy and sell Ripple for fiat currency (i.e. Dollars, Euros, etc.). Meaning this platform is good if you only want to speculate on the price. This method is only valid if you live outside of the US. IMPORTANT! If you use eToroyou don’t actually need a Ripple wallet as they don’t supply you the actual coins. Also, Cryptocurrencies can widely fluctuate in prices and are not appropriate for all investors. Trading cryptocurrencies is not supervised by any EU regulatory framework. So keep in mind that your capital is at risk. Buy Ripple With Fiat CurrencyThe best way to buy Ripple for people who don’t already own Bitcoin is to purchase it directly through a wire transfer or a credit card. CEX.io, allows you to quickly buy XRP via your credit card or wire. CEX is a London-based cryptocurrencies exchange and has been around since 2013. You may read our full review on CEXas well. Coinmamaalso allows you to buy Ripple with a debit or credit card. The company is a well established broker that started operating back in 2013. You can read our full Coinmama review here. It is also possible to buy XRP with a wire transfer through Bitstamp.  After signing up and following their KYC (Know Your Customer) procedure, it is easy to send EUR through a SEPA transfer or USD by a bank transfer.  As soon as the transfer clears, fiat currency can be traded for XRP directly on their exchange. Bitstamp also allows people to move funds onto the platform with a credit card payment or trade Bitcoin directly for XRP.  Here are more details on using Bitstamp to purchase XRP. GateHubis another exchange that supports XRP.   First, sign into GateHub and go through their KYC process.  GateHub accepts SEPA transfers and bank transfers, although there is a $15 fee for bank transfers.  After receiving USD or EUR, it can be traded for XRP on the GateHub trading platform. Buy Ripple with Bitcoin (trade BTC for XRP)Throughout the Ripple community, the consensus is that the least expensive way to purchase XRP is by buying bitcoinfrom Coinbaseor another provider first.  Then, bitcoin can be sent to any number of exchanges and traded for XRP. The easiest way to trade Bitcoin for XRP is by quickly exchanging it on Changellyor Shapeshift. Krakenis another popular exchange that allows users to trade bitcoin for XRP. XRP can also be purchased with bitcoin by trading it on Poloniex, and Bittrex, among other exchanges. Japanese customers can use Coincheckor Bitbankto buy XRP. Individuals located in Mexico can use Bitsoto buy XRP. Customers located in South Korea can use Coinoneor Korebitto purchase XRP. Step 3 – Withdraw your XRP to your walletI wouldn’t recommend leaving your XRP on the exchange you bought them from. This is due to the fact that you don’t actually control the private key for your coins and therefor they are no actually yours. No matter where you got the coins from remember to withdraw them into your own Ripple wallet that you hold the private keys to. Once the transaction is confirmed you’ve successfully finished the process of buying Ripple. Conclusion – Is Ripple Worth Investing In?Ripple will probably appeal to larger banks throughout the next couple years, as they offer a global settlement network that enables real time payments internationally, while reducing transaction fees. Anyone who purchases the innate digital asset, XRP, has the potential to earn huge returns on their investment, if Ripple keeps making headway throughout the banking sector.  While fleeting, the concept of XRP becoming an established global reserve currency is an ideal scenario for investors. Even though XRP has increased in value significantly in 2017, I believe this is just the beginning of its ascent. However, as always, were there is great reward there is also great risk involved. Please make sure to invest responsible as we’ve outlined in the past.
