Uphold, a US-headquatered financial services platform, which enables users to convert deposits to their accounts via bank accounts and credit cards, has made an announcement claiming that Ripple cryptocurrency is live on the platfrom and the members are able to buy, hold and convert Ripple within their wallets.
We are thrilled to announce that starting today Uphold members have access to buy and sell XRP right from their Uphold wallet. For a limited time and in celebration of this launch, Uphold is offering ZERO fees for the first 5M XRP purchased. This is another important milestone for our members and for Uphold as XRP is one of the fastest growing digital assets and the third most valuable cryptocurrency.
Uphold platform has sent an email to their users, stating that one of the main reasons for adding Ripple support is that many users were requesting to list new options for saving cryptos. Moreover, Miguel Vias, head of XRP markets at Ripple stated that the listing of XRP on Uphold underscores the significant increase in demand for XRP.
