As it seems many of you specifically wanted a guide on how to buy Ripple(XRP) step by step, so here you have it.Ripple seems to have become a popular altcoin for people to buy, so I’ll quickly guide you through the easiest method to buy some!
Once you done it, you will see it’s not as hard as you might think 🙂
1. Create a Coinbase account
The easiest way to get started is by creating an Coinbase Account (<–Use this link to sign up and get FREE 10$ worth of Bitcoin directly on your new Coinbase account!) and buying some Bitcoin or Ethereum. You can follow my previous guide on how to do that.
At the time of writing this article, I recommend using Ethereum to avoid high BTC trade fees
After creating a Coinbase account, you can also create a GDAX account, which is a daughter firm of Coinbase, to safe on some fees. Although I would recommend doing your first transaction using Coinbase, just to get a feel for it.
Once you are done with it, we continue to transfer this currency to an exchange.
2. Create a Binance account
After you created your Binance account, the first thing you should do is to enable 2 Factor Authentication using Google Authenticator. You can set that up by clicking on your account settings. I highly recommend you do this FIRST.
3. Deposit funds
Now it’s time to deposit funds. Navigate to Funds / Deposits Withdrawals:
Now simply type ETH or BTC, depending on what currency you bought on Coinbase, in to the search field and click on Deposit on the right side:
Once you click on Deposit, you will see your ETH address. Copy it by clicking on the Copy sign next to it:
Now you need to head back to Coinbase and send your Ethereum to this address. The process on Coinbase is self-explanatory.
Once all confirmations run through, you can now start buying altcoins on Binance. It can take a while according to how many transactions are going on at the moment, usually you see the status of the transaction on Coinbase.
Tripple check if your ETH address is correct before sending. You can also first send a tiny amount of ETH to see if it arrives on your Binance Wallet.
4. Buying Ripple
Time to go shopping. Back on Binance, navigate to Deposits Withdrawals again and check Hide Zero Balances. You should now only see currencies where you have funds in, in our case Ethereum should show up.
After all is to our liking, navigate to Exchange / Basic:
On number 3, choose the trading pair. In our case ETH, if you have Bitcoin, choose BTC.
Now enter the currency you want to buy in the Search Field indicated by the number 1. Click on the trade pair indicated by number 2:
Number 3 indicates the price for 1 XRP in ETH.
Number 4 let’s you enter the amount of XRP that you want to buy. You can also click on the 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% buttons below to use a certain amount of your ETH for the purchase.
Number 5 let’s you buy your altcoin.
And this is it. You just learned how to buy altcoins, wasn’t that hard, right?
After hitting buy you will have the altcoin in your wallet under Funds / Deposit Withdrawals.
5. Transfering your Ripple to a Ledger Nano S
I highly recommend using a Ledger Nano S to store your Crypto assets on a safe device.
