A major cryptocurrency exchange, Huobi, has added XRP trading pairs in the United States through its operator, Hbus. The trading pairs feature the U.S dollar, Bitcoin, and Tether. I.e USD/XRP, BTC/XRP, and USDT/XRP.
While deposits are set to open at 12:00 am PST today, Cointelegraph reported, withdrawals will be enabled 24 hours later. The three new XRP trading pairs have bolstered the number of trading pairs on Huobi.com’s U.S version to fifty-one with XRP closing the list of 20 virtual currencies currently active on the platform. Ripple (XRP) occupies position 3 on the list of top coins when weighed against their market capitalization.
The Huobi Global virtual currency exchange is the number 8 largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. The listing of XRP trading pairs on the Huobi.com’s U.S version comes roughly 2 months after Coinbase, a leading exchange in the U.S, listed Ripple (XRP) in Feb this year. The United States version of Huobi occupies position 183 globally and handles approximately 90,000 U.S dollars’ worth of trades in a day.
More than XRP being added on Huobi.com, the XRPayments application can now be downloaded on Android and iOS-supported mobile devices. The application was developed by XRPL Labs which has backing from Ripple. The XRPayments app had been undergoing testing and its availability on app store (Apple/iOS) and Play store (Google) means that it’s now fit for human consumption.
During the testing phase, a user noted that it does not “auto fill” the amount of XRP to send after scanning a QR code. While the user viewed this as an anomaly since the web version of the app had the auto-fill feature, Wietse Wind, one of the app’s developers, replied noting that the auto-fill feature was intentionally left out since XRPL Labs “wanted 100% support.”
Do you think the addition of XRP trading pairs on Huobi.com and the launch of XRPayments will boost activities involving Ripple (XRP)?
