Ripple’s XRP can now be purchased via credit card on Changelly, an instant crypto swap exchange platform, through a partnership with Simplex, a fintech company that provides worldwide fraudless payment processing.
Changelly allows users to make their first credit card transaction up to $10,000, with a $20,000 daily and $50,000 monthly total limit. The process is fast and secure but comes with significant additional fees that total 10% — 5% to Changelly and 5% to Simplex.
This news comes several months after Changelly announced that it was collaborating with TRON (TRX), a blockchain infrastructure for a decentralized internet, to similarly allow investors to use credit cards to securely and instantly purchase TRX. However, TRX does not currently appear to be available for purchase via credit card.
Changelly is currently beta testing a new website design which features a revamped interface, a dedicated mobile app and a link to submit new tokens for listing.
XRP is currently trading for $0.4545, giving the altcoin an $18.18 billion market cap and making it the 3rd largest coin in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
