What's The Best Way To Buy XRP Without Using Kraken?

27 posts in this topic

I'm new at this so it's confusing. Can someone say what's the best way to buy XRP without using Kraken? 

Can you be specific like:  Go to website xxx.com and do this.  Then go to website yyy.com and do this.

I downloaded a wallet, but I have no clue what to do after. I don't even care about using the wallet.  I just want to buy XRP without having to go through Kraken. Their system isn't working for me right now and their support doesn't answer.

Thanks

Does Circle.com issue their own BTC IOU?

you can use Shapeshift to convert the Bitcoin into XRP.

Or even better (IMO): https://changelly.com

I'm sure there was also one other site (I even used it myself, but forget) where you could (can still?) buy XRP via credit card. Can't recall, but it was fast and the rates weren't too bad. Maybe it was cryptomate though, not sure.

https://www.litebit.eu

This is a Dutch company with slightly higher fees than Kraken for example but the buying / selling process is smooth.
I used them in the past for my first stash of XRP but prefer Kraken atm

Buying is possible with SEPA wire transfer and several other methods, wire transfer needs verification but I cannot remember how I did that

https://bitonic.nl/

Bitonic is also a Dutch company with a good name but I have no experience with them. I see paying is only possible with iDeal (very popular in Holland), Bancontact and Mybank. If you are Dutch and have iDeal it is pretty simple to buy I think.

I downloaded the wallet from ripplex.net

How do I then buy XRP with BTC?  Do I do it from the desktop wallet client?

Suppose it's in Portuguese, don't know if they serve Spanish too (don't see it on their website)

I have no experience with the ripplex wallet, but the desktop wallet I use (ripple desktop client) allows me to freely turn BTC into XRP.  Don't ask me to pull back the curtain though, because I only know that it works on the surface. You setup a gateway in the wallet, and you initiate your trades through the wallet gui.
