Is Coinbase adding Ripple (XRP) on its exchange? The rumors at least suggest so. The recent rumors have induced a 20% surge in XRP prices. As of the time of writing this article, Ripple (XRP) stands at $1.6.
According to a credible news source, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse would face Coinbase COO Asiff Hirji on the CNBC show Fast Money, on the 6th of March. Many Ripple holders believe that they will be announcing XRP’s listing on Coinbase exchange. Why? Coinbase has revealed that they have called in an additional staff of 500. While they had announced to add new coins in the start of 2018. So, why not?
In January 2018, the rumors of Ripple (XRP) being added to the Coinbase circulated the market with an intense and massive force which led the cryptocurrency surge up to 200% in just five days. The third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ripple (XRP) had hit an all-time high of $3.4 just when Coinbase officially announced that it’s not adding Ripple (XRP) on its exchange which ultimately forced the investors take their money out of Ripple (XRP).
In between this time, news such as Ripple’s partnership with Western Union and MoneyGram caused temporary spikes in XRP’s prices. However, no other news has forced Ripple (XRP) to go even near to its all-time high.
If Coinbase actually lists Ripple (XRP) which will be a totally justified step, Ripple (XRP) might rocket within no time.
