Hbus, the largest crypto exchange operator Huobi.com, based in the USA, today launched three trading pairs for XRP. This news was announced in a press release.
According to the report, three XRP trading pairs should be USD-XRP, Bitcoin (BTC) -XRP and Tether (USDT) -XRP. XRP deposits are due to open today at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time, while trading and withdrawals from these three pairs will begin tomorrow, April 19, at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
According to Frank Fu, Hbus CEO, XRP is the 20th largest digital asset of the platform, bringing the total number of Huobi.com trading pairs to 51.
The press release describes XRP as a "high-performance coin with a wide utility and volume."
As previously reported, the Huobi.com marketplace was first launched under the name Hbus in June 2018 as a strategic partner of the Huobi Group – the flagship crypto-exchange operator Huobi Global – currently ranks 8th in the world. Trading services on the US platform began to function in July 2018. In January of this year, its operator Hbus from San Francisco renamed Hbus to Huobi.com.
After much speculation, XRP was eventually included on the list of professional traders at the largest US crypto exchange and purse provider Coinbase, for the first time in February of this year.
At the end of March, Coinbase added additional functionality to the asset, which allowed customers to make cross-border payments with zero commission using XRP and a US dollar (USDC) exchange coin.
Huobi.com is ranked 183rd in the world in cryptocurrency, resulting in about $ 90,000 in the last 24 hours.
