On January 7, Singapore-based crypto trading platform Bitrue announced that it would launch four new Ripple pairs by the end of the week. They are:
The announcement was made via Twitter, and it reads:
“We’re happy to bring to you: $HOT/ $XRP, $NPXS/ $XRP, $DNT/ $XRP, & $PRO/ $XRP! 4 NEW XRP Base-Pairs which shall arrive by end of the week!”
The news comes barely a week after the exchange announced that it would be adding support for five new XRP pairs to its platform in the first week of 2019. The exchange was planning to list Stella (XLM), TRON (TRX), OmiseGo (OMG), GAS, and NEO.
Before the exchange listed the above five pairs, it had already paired Ripple (XRP) with Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Chainlink (LINK), Litecoin (LTC), Gifto (GTO), Paxos (PAX), Kyber Network (KNC), Ox (ZRX), WaltonChain (WTC), Quarkchain (QKC), True USD (TUSD).
The company also said that it is looking forward to pairing Ripple (XRP) with VechainThor (VET) and Cardano (ADA) in the near future.
The CEO of Bitrue Curis Wang took to Twitter to acknowledge the team that responded to the demands of the XRP community.
“WE ARE SERIOUS – WITHIN 7 DAYS, TRX/XRP DONE!!
12/27, we asked about what people need the most to pair with XRP. The whole team worked till midnight every day since then. We didn’t give us a break even it was ‘happy holidays’ season. We just eager to fulfill people’s wishes,” Wang posted on Twitter.
Bitrue was launched in April 2018 and is the brainchild of a team of talented blockchain enthusiasts. While many crypto exchanges launched their trading platforms with either Bitcoin or Ethereum as their base pairs, Bitrue launched its platform with Ripple as one of its popular trading pairs.
Its developers say it is the “most secure and advanced platform on the web where crypto investors can buy, sell, store and transfer their coins.”
