bittrex and other exchanges


Recommended Posts

To get XRP directly, I  primarily use Kraken and occasionally Poloniex, but also have used itBit and Gemini to buy BTC or ETH when I want to trade (they don't have XRP).  Experiences with Kraken are consistently smooth, IMO.

What exchange do you guys use for ripple? I'm scared to use bittrex now with the closing of accounts with no explanation. has that been resolved or is it still ongoing?

Are you in Europe? If so, Bitstamp is the best way to go IMHO.  SEPA payments, banking license (which means some security of funds up to 100K), trustworthy team. Never had any issues with them. Maybe very diligent on their KYC, in order to comply with  anti-money laundering legislation (and I am totally fine with that).

Hey, Bitstamp was one of the first Ripple gateways so there should be no problem if you are from the US. You may transfer your funds via international wire transfer or make a credit card deposit. Should you require any assistance, feel free to contact us. 

Just curious. In your last sentence you write, I quote - Should you require any assistance, feel free to contact us.

Who is   - us - ?
