The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), which aims to become a global leader in professional digital asset trading, has made an announcement about listing XRP. The third biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization will be available for traders on the GBX-DAX digital exchange from today on.

Five trading pairs with XRP

GBX-DAX has debuted five new trading pairs that allow trading XRP against the US Dollar (USD), the Euro (EUR), the British Pound (GBP), Ethereum (ETH), and Bitcoin (BTC). Currently, 11 tokens are available on the exchange, but the number of available assets is constantly expanding. 

It’s worth mentioning that GBX-DAX is the first digital asset platform that is owned by a stock exchange, which is fully compliant with EU regulations. GBX-DAX is marketed as the most secure environment for cryptocurrency traders. The exchange, which was launched in October 2017, made plenty of headlines after being officially licensed by the GFSC in November 2018.
