BitGo has followed the example of other major exchanges in the U.S., which have also resumed trading their XRP pairs – Coinbase, Kraken, Bitstamp and Coinbase was among the first platforms to suspend XRP trading in 2021 after the SEC filed a lawsuit against the blockchain giant.

However, Coinbase customers were allowed to still use their XRP wallet for storing and transferring their XRP stashes.

The head of Binance, CZ, in a recent tweet stated that Binance never delisted XRP. However, it was done by Binance US in early 2021. But even this exchange has resumed trading XRP as well.
