Although 2018 has not been great for the valuation of XRP, on the development and partnership side it has been a major year for the digital asset. And, a few days before 2019 kicks in, XRP gets some more good news: the base pair listing on BTCEXA!
This week, the Australian-based cryptocurrency exchange BTCEXA announced that XRP has been listed as part of the newest base pairs on the exchange.
According to the announcement, the cryptocurrency has been paired with ADA and Stellar Lumens to form the ADA/XRP and XLM/XRP pairs respectively. The original message from BTCEXA to its users:
“Dear BTCEXA Users, We are pleased to announce that XRP has been listed as a base pair on BTCEXA! The trading pairs available at launch are XLM/XRP & ADA/XRP”.
The listing of XRP as a base pair shows the growing support for XRP since it took over the number two position from Ethereum on CoinMarketCap. On December 24, Binance announced that they were listing XRP as a base pair on the platform. The trading pairs with XRP are TRX/XRP and XZC/XRP.
XRP holders used the hashtag #XRPthebase on Twitter to convince Binance that adding the digital asset as a base pair would be the right thing to do. According to the XRP community, Ethereum became a base pair because it was the second largest digital asset. It now seems, that more cryptocurrency exchanges are in favor of adding XRP as a base pair.
At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.34, down 5.42% over the past 24-hours, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
