We are thrilled to announce that starting today Uphold members have access to buy and sell XRP right from their Uphold wallet. For a limited time and in celebration of this launch, Uphold is offering ZERO fees for the first 5M XRP purchased*. This is another important milestone for our members and for Uphold as XRP is one of the fastest growing digital assets and the third most valuable cryptocurrency with a market cap of $24,838,048,184.

We frequently receive requests to support new currencies and XRP was clearly on the top of Uphold members’ minds, and when we asked in a recent Twitter poll which cryptocurrency they wanted to see next—out of 12,000+ responses, Twitter followers overwhelmingly voted for XRP.

The XRP ecosystem is diversifying and growing rapidly,” said Miguel Vias, head of XRP markets at Ripple. “The listing of XRP on Uphold, a strong retail platform that offers customers easy access to digital assets, underscores the significant increase in demand for XRP.”

Uphold is proud to be a leader in the industry, as one of the first digital money platforms to make XRP accessible to the masses. We have seen huge demand for XRP and Uphold is one of the first platform’s to make XRP easily accessible. Uphold was first with Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold, and we are again at the forefront of innovation in the cryptocurrency industry.

Overview:

  • Uphold members can now purchase XRP with ZERO FEES* (Tier 4 Fees apply when selling XRP).
  • Convert XRP from any other supported currency within their Uphold wallet
  • Hold XRP within their Uphold wallet.
  • Zero fee offer is limited to the purchase of XRP, for a limited period.
  • During phase one launch members will not be able to send XRP to external wallets or addresses.
  • Zero fee offer is available for a limited time based on the availability of XRP through the first 5M XRP purchased on Uphold.

Phase two will launch in the coming weeks, at which time the Uphold platform will connect to the XRP Ledger enabling full functionality including deposits and withdrawals of XRP. For now, members can easily buy and sell XRP within their Uphold wallet (please note: you will not be able to move those funds to an external wallet until the launch of phase two).

Our support of XRP is yet another example of how Uphold continues to expand and support the growing demand for digital currencies, including tokens, coins, and emerging assets.

*This offer is limited up to as many as the first five million XRP purchased. Uphold reserves the right to suspend the offer at any time without prior notice”.
