Most of the responses obtained from Twitter users was ironic, but many users suggested using the Ripple XRP as a default basis on the exchange, some arguing that this would also help the exchange to increase its turnover.
“CZ, the amount of money that Binance will make using the XRP as the default exchange basis will be impressive,” says a user who seems to assume that this should be the future of the exchange and then adds:
“Hype is strong because technology is solid. And I say … Have you included the first and third cryptocurrency as a default base, why not the second one? “
The latter is a reference to the apparent consolidation of Ripple as a second cryptocurrency based on the market cap, a position obtained so far by Ethereum .
According to the data on CoinMarketCap , in fact, the gap has increased to reach about three billion dollars at the time of writing the article.
XRP as a default exchange basis
Using Ripple as the default base is not unprecedented.
DCEX is the major example. They are the first exchange to only use XRP for this purpose.
This October, however, was announced the launch of XRP United , an Estonian exchange equipped with pairs XRP / BTC, XRP / ETH, XRP / BCH with declared intentions to add XRP / XMR.
In the last 24 hours, Ripple lost almost 7% of its value following the general market movement which saw the first five cryptocurrencies per market cap in red.
