Here’s what you need to know:
Ripple (XRP) is a cryptocurrency that aims to ease the friction of cross-border transactions through the use of its XRP Ledger software. The team behind Ripple and its native XRP cryptocurrency first created Ripple in 2012 as a way to offer banks and financial institutions a real-time, secure and global settlement solution. Today, XRP is used by developers looking to build payment, tokenization, DeFi, CBDC and stablecoin applications on the XRP Ledger.
Will Kraken make more assets available?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – including which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s available tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be making available in the future.
Trade with caution
There is no guarantee that a limit order will execute. There is also no guarantee a market order will execute at a certain price. The availability and liquidity of the particular digital asset will impact these types of orders.
