Cryptocurrency exchange Coss.io just gave XRP a big boost, listing the digital asset as a base pair.
The Singapore-based exchange has paired XRP with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Tether, Litecoin, NEO, Dash, OmiseGo, Ark, Gemini Dollar, TrueUSD and USD Coin.
The Ripple and XRP community has been pushing hard for the addition of XRP as a base pair on all cryptocurrency exchanges, especially Binance. They argue the change would further detach altcoins from the price swings of Bitcoin and offer traders a way to utilize the speed of XRP to move value between exchanges.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao recently tweeted about the request, asking the Ripple faithful to convince him that he should expand XRP’s presence on the leading cryptocurrency exchange.
The xrp base shill is strong. Let's get it out of your system, and put all your shills under this one tweet, and let's see how much we get. https://t.co/usiISCtuSj
