Uphold recently announced full support for the XRP Ledger. Traders on the Uphold exchange platform can move XRP to their wallets from the exchange after exchanging it with fiat currencies.

This move is part of Uphold’s strategy to make XRP generally accessible to the general public in the United States. It offers over 1500 pairings with XRP. Uphold was one of the first retail platforms to provide instant access to XRP back in March. There are a total of 9 different ways to access XRP on Uphold, including bank transfer, debit or credit cards.

Uphold is now able to issue actual XRP wallet addresses, which allows for more use among investors. CRO of Uphold, Robin O’Connell said:

“This is an important milestone for Uphold and our members. We were the first to make XRP easily available in the U.S., expanding our offering to include full connectivity to the XRP ledger was the clear next step.”

Twitter users were all praises for Uphold’s quick verification process and support for transfer to cold wallets. User said:

“Wow, you weren’t kidding about the verification time. I think I timed this at two minutes. Will make my first purchase of $XRP through you now to compare it my normal process.”

User Corey M Winkler said:

“I just made my first purchase, never going back to coinbase again. Uphold the future of XRP purchases for me 100%.”

Crypto-enthusiast Calvin Schultz said:

“XRP Friends, please meet @UpholdInc Was validated as a user in under 24 hours, use USD to make purchase of XRP, and tested successfully sending XRP to a cold wallet. This will now be my goto for XRP accumulation! Spread the good news!”

User Sekundar said:

“I will have literally no reason to use @Coinbase anymore for my $XRP purchases. @Uphold, thank you for listening to your customers.”

    I have been using coinbase for a long time and have been waiting for them to list XRP which is my favorite cryptocurrency. I Uphold, I no longer have to take the long way around to buy XRP. Buh bye Coinbase, Hello Uphold!

    I started using Uphold three months ago. Then I got locked out of my account for 6 days and they wouldn’t return my daily inquiries. I finally had to contact an exec via Linkdin to get past their horrible customer service and get my account reopened. Promptly withdrew the $700+ in assets. Good Luck getting debit/credit card transactions done with them as well.
