Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has launched trading support for XRP for New York state residents.
The exchange's list of supported cryptocurrencies continues to grow. It currently offers support for bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ether (ETH), ethereum classic (ETC), litecoin (LTC), Circle’s USDC stablecoin, zcash, Brave’s Basic Attention Token (BAT), among others.
Coinbase also recently started offering a “fast and free” payments service using XRP and USDC stablecoin. The service is “primarily designed as an educational resource for customers to learn about the benefits of using crypto for cross-border payments,” the exchange’s representative told CoinDesk at the time.
