How to buy Ripple (XRP) or any other cryptocurrency with USD
In this article, I will show you some quick steps on how to buy XRP (Ripple) or any other coin you want as this method works for everyone. One of the most popular places to buy cryptocurrency is Coinbase.com, but at the time of writing, they only support BTC, LTC, and ETH. You can buy BTC on Coinbase and then transfer the BTC to another exchange such as Binance or Bittrex where you can then use the transferred BTC to buy ripples.
If this sounds overwhelming to you, you can instead sign up for BitStamp.net, an exchange that lets you buy Ripple with USD using your credit / debit card. Keep in mind that there is a 5% fee and if you are using a credit card instead of a debit card it will show as advanced money on your credit card.
Other places where you can buy Ripple directly with a bank account are Kraken and Gatehub. Almost all sites require verification and it can take a few days, so be sure to register in advance.
The most common method: buy bitcoin on Coinbase.com, send the bitcoin from your Coinbase wallet to another bitcoin wallet on a site like Binance.com, then use that bitcoin money to buy ripples.
