The world’s first digital asset bank that lets people invest in the digital economy has announced the adoption and inclusion of XRP among its currency portfolios.
Sygnum today declared that it has launched and included XRP on its platform for custody, trading and credit services. Syganum is a Singapore and Swiss-based regulated bank that allows customers to invest in digital currencies via e-banking portal or trading desk.
The inclusion of XRP marks the third digital currency added to the platform after Ethereum and Bitcoin. According to Finextra, customers can also invest in the digital currency via Sygnum by transferring XRP directly into the bank’s custodian wallet.
