Bitstamp, the EU’s first fully regulated digital currency exchange today launched the XRP/BTC trading pair on its exchange. XRP, the digital asset that is native to the Ripple Consensus Ledger, can now be traded with BTC, while XRP versus USD and EUR trading pairs were launched last month.
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.
To commence trading Bitstamp is offering the following discounted 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
- 25% discount on fees until 30 April.
As of midnight on 1 May 2017, the XRP fee schedule will revert to normal.
Full trading functionalities opened today at 2.00 pm GMT, which is when the discounted fee schedule became available.
Additionally, XRP trading will now also be integrated on Bitstamp mobile for Android and iOS from Friday, February 17th onwards.
