Internet payment system, Skrill recently announced that they have added XRP to their list of supported cryptocurrencies. As reported by the company, they made the decision of adding XRP based on list of requests from the holders of the second largest cryptocurrency in the market.
Company made the original announcement on their official Twitter page on November 27. The message reads: “we’re very excited to announce XRP has been added to the list of cryptocurrencies you can buy and sell with Skrill. Thank you to everyone who has asked about Ripple. It’s Here!” Afterwards, the message also invited the users to sign up on their platform by providing the direct link.
The company had earlier confirmed that they already offer trading in four major cryptocurrencies in the market on their platform. Currently the available digital currencies on the platform include: Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC).
