Coinbase adds XRP/GBP pair

by | Jul 15, 2020

Coinbase, founded in June of 2012 and one of the most well known digital asset exchanges in the world, has added a Pound sterling pair for XRP.

XRP listing

A potential XRP listing was widely discussed and speculated upon for a long time. After years of endless rumors and speculation, Coinbase finally listed XRP in February 2019, with XRP/USD, XRP/EUR, and XRP/BTC pairs. A few months later, in November 2019, Coinbase also added XRP to its crypto Visa debit card.

GBP/XRP pair

On July 15, Coinbase announced its intention of adding the following pairs to its platform on the 21st of July: ALGO-EUR, ALGO-GBP, LINK-EUR, LINK-GBP, XRP-GBP and XTZ-EUR, XTZ-GBP.

This comes only a few months after both Bitstamp (Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity partner for USD and EUR) and Binance added the GBP/XRP order book to their exchanges.

According to our research, Coinbase will become the 21st exchange offering a GBP/XRP pair, making it the third most popular fiat currency for XRP, after the USD (72 exchanges) and the EUR (56 exchanges).
