New to Gatehub, how to get started?

Hello, I am new to Ripple and thought the best (easiest) place to get started would be Gatehub. However, the whole process is very confusing and unclear, and I am not sure exactly how it works and how long it takes; I apologize in advance as I understand similar questions might have already been asked, but still could not make sense of it.

First of all, how does the 20XRP minimum requirement work, and how can I start trading XRP if I need XRP to start trading?

Secondly, I already own BTC and thought I would transfer them over so that I keep everything in one place. Also figured I could then use those BTC to buy the initial 20XRP required. However, when I click on the "Deposit/Receive" link in the picture below

Nothing happens, as my browser (tried with both Internet Explorer and Chrome) gets stuck on the page below

Has this happened to anyone else before? Is it a technical issue caused by something on my end, or could it be due to activation issues on Gatehub's side?

Thanks everyone!

Go to Binance.

Gatehub has been super slow, and their customer service is non-responsive.  They may just be really really really really backed up at the moment, but still not worth the headache.

I'm still waiting for my ETH transfer to hit my wallet.....coming up on day 4.....

As above make sure you only sent XRP to your gatehub account and not the BTC because it can only be activated with XRP.

So best is to take you BTC to an other exchange like Binance trade it for XRP and sent the XRP to you ripple wallet to activate it.

Then you can decide how you want to add more money |(First set up the trustlines) and use the trade function (try out with small amount first)

For the screens it seems technical issue with your brower/computer, can you try on a different computer but with you account to see if that works.

It should look like this:
