Getting Started With Ripple

If you want to trade XRP, you first need to decide which exchange you want to use. The most important criterion is the fees that are levied by the exchanges on trades, deposits, or withdrawals. There are some exchanges where you can buy cryptocurrencies using fiat currency.

In order to open an account, you must provide all the necessary identity proofs. Now select which cryptos you want to trade. The trade is usually made in currency pairs like XRP/ETH, XRP/BTC, XRP/GBP, etc.

While placing the trade, there are few options that you will have like buy order, sell order, put/call, market order, limit order, and stop-loss order.

When you have bought your Ripple, the coins will be credited to your exchange account, which works as an online crypto wallet.

If you don’t have any plans to trade XRP that you have bought, then you can also transfer them to your personal wallet to keep them secure.
