Breaking: Crypto Exchange Coinbase ‘Exploring’ Support for Ripple (XRP)

After months of waiting, the hopes and dreams of ripple (XRP) investors may finally be realized — at some point in the near future, anyway. Yes, XRP fans, crypto exchange Coinbase has confirmed that it is exploring adding support for the second-largest cryptocurrency to its platform.

Ripple denies those allegations.
