Stronghold, a financial services platform that enables payments, trading, and USD reserves based in San Francisco, has announced the addition of XRP on its exchange.
We already knew that XRP offers competitive pricing and efficient trading but the removal of three XLM markets seems strange.
Tammy Camp, Stronghold CEO, provided a partial answer to that question when she tweeted they are now more focused on USD trading pairs. However, this does not explain the fact that XLM/BTC was removed and XRP/BTC was added.
Stronghold did tweet a week ago that some customers were experiencing delays with Stellar transactions and that the matter was going to be resolved.
Whatever the reasons for the removal of those XLM pairs, our focus remains on XRP, its addition on exchanges and the additional liquidity that comes with it.
