How to easily buy Ripple cryptocurrency

Ripple has been getting a lot of attention lately, which in turn has got a lot of people asking “How do I buy Ripple?” or wondering “Where to buy Ripple?“. Exchanges such as Kraken, Bitstamp, and most others are being inundated with new account requests. Which in turn its taking many weeks just to get your account verified.

In this guide I’ll show you how to buy Ripple (XRP) very easily and quickly, usually in less than 30 minutes!

How to buy Ripple (XRP) cryptocurrency

  1. First log into your Coinbase account and buy Ethereum (ETH). Yes you could buy Bitcoin (BTC) but the fees are higher, thus I recommend buying ETH.
  2. Now transfer your Ethereum to your GDAX account by going to: Deposit > Coinbase Account.
    Since GDAX is owned by Coinbase, the transfers between the two are FREE.

  3. Next transfer your Ethereum from GDAX to Binance in order to exchange your Ethereum into Ripple (XRP), by going to: Funds > Deposits Withdrawls.

Congratulations, you now own Ripple (XRP)!

I don’t encourage anyone to leave their cryptocurrency in any exchange. Instead use a software wallet or a hardware wallet (most secure) such as the Ledger Wallet, which DOES support Ripple.

Simply withdraw your Ripple (XRP) from your Binance account into your software or hardware wallet.
