XRP community appealing Binance to add XRP as base currency
Recently, XRP is gaining a lot of traction as a new base currency. San Francisco-based, DCEX exchange added XRP as the base currency on its crypto-to-crypto trading platform. At this time only, an Indian exchange Unocoin has also done the same thing. Before this, Bitrue has added the world’s 3rd largest cryptocurrency as its base currency.

Now, the XRP community wants the leading digital asset exchange Binance to add XRP as the base currency. Currently, binance is using Binance (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB) and Tether (USDT) as the base. A few days back, an XRP enthusiast asked Binance, if it is looking into adding XRP as the base currency.
Hello @Binance, we would like you to add $XRP as a base currency/pair to your platform – are you looking into it? #XRPCommunity is a big fan of your #exchange and this could certainly drive tremendous volumes for you.. Don’t be like #Bill (aka @Coinbase). Cheers! #XRPTheBase 🍀

Not long after, the entire community started appealing Binance to just do it!
We would like to see #XRP as one of the base assets on @Binance in order to move value much more quickly!
Please do it @cz_binance !
Let’s get some retweets to let them know. 🙂#xrpcommunity #xrpthebase

So, this is how it went!
One Twitter user wrote,
“We’re on @Binance, too. With #XRP as a base we would use this exchange a lot more. XRP is great for shipping your currencies around, cheap & fast. Perfect base. We avoid BTC when we can, the fees are ridiculous. BTC is a collector’s item, XRP is the best bridge. Love that coin.”
One Redditor wrote in part, “XRP is a lot faster and cheaper than BTC and ETH which are the most common base pairs. It makes a lot of sense, no matter what you think of XRP.”

The growing interest of Weiss Ratings didn’t stop here as it further shared the same sentiments as of XRP community in Binance adding XRP as base currency which makes complete sense as Tweeted by the cryptocurrency rating agency:
We think that the #XRP is the fastest digital asset to transfer funds between exchanges. It only makes sense for #Binance to use it as the base #currency – why should one have to go through an intermediary currency to trade? #crypto #btc #altcoins
