how to buy ripple on gatehub

As a top cryptocurrency by market cap, Ripple (XRP) is probably on your radar as a potential coin to buy. You have a few different platforms available on which you can purchase Ripple with Bitcoin. However, your options for buying Ripple with USD, EUR, or other fiat pairings are a little more limited.

A popular method to buy Ripple with fiat is to use the GateHub wallet. GateHub is built on the Ripple protocol, so it specializes in XRP exchanges.

In this guide, we’ll explain step-by-step how to buy Ripple on Gatehub, specifically using USD. Although we only cover purchasing Ripple with USD, the platform also supports EUR, CNY, and JPY trading.

To get started, create a GateHub account.
