[Where can you buy Ripple XRP cryptocurrency?]

All the popular cryptocurrency exchanges gives you an opportunity to buy Ripple XRP. Poloniex,Bittrex,Kraken are few well known cryptocurrency exchange.Guys If you are interested to hold Ripple for long time then its better to use Ledger Nano S as a hardware wallet.The reason behind recommending hardware wallet is its ability to be more secured due to offline nature of its presence as compared to other online wallets.If you are a daily trader of cryptocurrency like Ripple XRP then you don't have any feasible option but to use online wallet.Online wallet always carries risk quotient due to internet connection.For me the best way to buy Ripple cryptocurrency is exchanging the coin from Bitcoin.I use Changelly for exchanging Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies for XRP.

[My opinion on investment in Ripple XRP Cryptocurrency]

My recommendation is that you should sure invest in Ripple cryptocurrency. It's unique feature of bank and investment friendly as discussed above gives coin an upper edge.Recently American Express tie up also provides strong support.Only thing you should keep in mind is the number of Ripple coin.As said by the company they will only circulate fifty percent and rest will be with the coin.So they can easily control Ripple XRP price by circulating more and more coin in the market.


[A brief introduction of Ripple coin wallet]

Before we discuss about different kind of coin wallet available for Ripple XRP it's better to know that the wallet for this coin is not free like you have for Bitcoin.You need to have a minimum of 20 XRP in your wallet to book Ripple wallet address.

Suppose you have 100 XRP in your wallet then 20 XRP will be used to book your wallet address.Since the wallet address doesn't come free of cost so most of the people uses only one type of wallet unlike bitcoin where even I use multiple wallets.Here you need to understand one thing very clearly that you need to pick up your Ripple coin wallet very intelligently else every time you change your Ripple coin wallet you will lose 20 XRP.

So Let's discuss about Ledger Nano S, a hardware wallet that has recently added support for XRP. To 
my understanding of cryptocurrency domain I can say Ledger is the best hardware wallet available in the market.I have been using this wallet from quiet a few time.The best part of this wallet is its user friendly nature and superlative security.Once you buy this hardware wallet you can use it for various other cryptocurrency like Dash,BTC,Stratis,Zcash,ETH/ETC and recently it started supporting Ripple XRP.

Moving further lets discuss about Gatehub,yet another popular website that allows you to not only store XRP but also buy them using USD or Euro.If you are interested in using Gatehub then please keep in mind to store the recovery key of your Gatehub account at safe place because this is one and only way to recover your XRP wallet once you have lost your password.

To start operating on Gatehub first you need to create your account followed by submitting KYC.Once done your account will be activated and you can deposit fund in this wallet in USD or Euro and start buying XRP directly from Gatehub.

Last in my list is Binance .It's chinese cryptocurrency exchange.Started in mid 2017 and considered to be the fastest growing cryptocurrency exchange.The best part is you can claim 50 percent discount on fee while trading cryptocurrency through Binance.
