It is probably the most frequently asked question, so, how do I buy Ripple XRP in the UK?
Well to start off – you are in a good place – at Crypto Market you can buy Ripple XRP for GBP in the UK using your UK bank account.
Before you make a purchase though there is one thing you will need to get: a Ripple wallet.
You may have heard the term ‘wallet’ used before in relation to digital currencies, or just in relation to ‘normal’ money – it is where you store your currency.
There are lots of different ways of getting a wallet, some people go for hardware wallets for the extra security, but this can be expensive and a little time consuming.
A popular choice in the UK is to sign up with Toast wallet or Gatehub to get a wallet.
Once you have got a wallet, it is important to note that to reserve your wallet you will need to fund it with at least 20 XRP.
This is a fundamental requirement of the Ripple system. You buy XRP from our site to fund your wallet as part of your first order, you don’t need to just send 20 XRP to start with – order a minimum of 100 XRP on our site and the first 20 XRP will be used to reserve the wallet.
Once you have a wallet, find the address you need to receive your XRP at.
An address is basically a big string of characters and numbers that is unique to you, a bit like an email address.
Now if you go to the buy XRP page on our site, you can get started with your order.
Paste in your wallet address, a destination tag if you need to provide one, and the quantity of XRP you require.
You can adjust the XRP amount on the basket page to fine tune your budget and see the final costs including the £9.99 fee.
Important note: please be extremely careful to check if you require a destination tag before placing an order. If you are sending your XRP to an exchange or similar there is a high chance you will need to use a destination tag. If you do not include this your XRP could be lost.
Follow the instructions on the site to order your XRP, starting by adding them to your basket then proceeding to checkout when you are ready.
To purchase your Ripple/XRP on our site you will need to send us payment from your UK bank account. Most UK bank accounts make use of Faster Payments, which means we should receive the payment within just a few minutes. If it takes longer, sometimes payments get manually checked by banks and can then take around 2 hours to send.
Once we have recived payment we will give everything a quick check then send your XRP to the details you provided.
You should get your Ripple XRP in just a few minutes – transactions using XRP are very fast. Allow 10 minutes from us notifying you the order is complete just to be on the safe side, but often the XRP may actually be in your account already (Ripple is so fast it is awesome).
