Why do Consumer Cryptocurrency Investors Buy Ripple?  

Several major world banks and financial institutions are already using  XRP and the Ripple XRP xRapid payment network. For this reason, many crypto investors believe that Ripple Coin benefits from a better long-term outlook than coins like Bitcoin, in terms of mainstream adoption.

From an investment perspective, the XRP price also appeals to low market entry point investors. For much of 2018 and 2019, Ripple Coin could be purchased for less than a dollar. However, XRP prices have previously reached as high as $4.

How to Buy Ripple Step 1 – Set up a Ripple Wallet

Before investing in any form of cryptocurrency, it is crucial that investors learn how to store coins safely.

As Easy Crypto is not a trading platform, we can not store XRP coins you buy on our servers. Instead, you will need to set up a Ripple wallet which we can deposit your XRP into post-purchase. If you don’t have a Ripple wallet already, we recommend using the Toast or Coinomi app wallet.
