Ternio is bridging the gap between the traditional finance world and cryptocurrency. The platform is among the few pushing for the adoption of cryptocurrency as a payment option.

Ternio said XRP will be officially incorporated into its platform this week.

Blockcard allows people to completely rely on crypto by performing transactions without needing to convert their assets to fiat currency. BlockCard says no fee is required on its platform for performing transactions, exchanges or deposits.

XRP/ETH Pair added to Binance Margin Trading List

Binance crypto exchange has established that it is adding the XRP/ETH pair to its Margin Trading platform to meet the demand of users.

Just like ETH, BNB, TRX, and EOS, XRP was earlier paired with Bitcoin [BTC] and Tether [USDT] alone on the Margin Trading Platform. This development makes XRP one of the few coins that are tradable against altcoins.
