We’ve put together an easy step-by-step guide on how to buy Ripple with your debit card in 2019.
Here to revolutionize cross-border money transfers, Ripple is making waves in the crypto space. It ranks in the top three highest market cap cryptocurrencies, and is 1000% faster than Bitcoin. On top of the speedy transactions, Ripple can also process a large amount of transactions per second, at a fragment of the price. Differentiating itself from the other cryptocurrencies, Ripple works with large institutions (payment providers, banks) with a number of products facilitating simpler international payments. Ripple is traded as XRP and currently has 41.3 billion in circulation, of the 100 billion supply.
