Uphold Rolls Out Zero-Fee Transactions for XRP

Xumm, the self-custodial wallet for the XRP ledger, announced its successful partnership with Uphold to introduce a 0% transaction fee event tailored for Topper-related transactions.

The event kicked off on 30 October and will run until 31 October, within the PST time zone.

This initiative provides a two-day window of zero transaction fees for Topper on-ramps, as well as fee-free XRP on-ramping through Topper.

Miguel Vias, head of XRP markets at Ripple expressed:

“The XRP ecosystem is diversifying and growing rapidly. The listing of XRP on Uphold, a strong retail platform that offers customers easy access to digital assets, underscores the significant increase in interest for XRP.”

Uphold Inc, a prominent global digital money platform, has made history by becoming the first and only platform to offer widespread access to XRP in the United States (US).

This development allows Uphold consumers to seamlessly purchase and sell XRP, which holds the distinction of being the third most valuable cryptocurrency with a market capitalisation exceeding $22 billion.

Uphold members, who already enjoy a broad spectrum of crypto and traditional currency options, can now include XRP in their diverse portfolios.

Adrian Steckel, Uphold’s CEO, stated:

“There has been huge demand for XRP and Uphold is one of the first platforms to make XRP easily accessible. Uphold was first with Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold, and we are again responding to interest from our members in establishing a first with XRP.”

The integration of Xumm’s self-custodial wallet into the Topper ecosystem signifies a significant step towards enhancing accessibility and versatility for purchasing digital assets using debit or credit cards.

By emphasising a high conversion rate, the Xumm wallet minimises the likelihood of transaction failures, thus elevating the overall user experience.

The collaborative efforts of Xumm and Topper particularly benefit cryptocurrency users in the US and Canada, regions where on-ramping cryptocurrencies can pose challenges.

Additionally, the solution bolsters major fiat currencies like USD, GBP, and EUR, positioning itself as a desirable platform for users across a multitude of countries.

The project empowers Xumm users with the ability to acquire XRP and other assets supported by the XRPL through debit or credit card transactions.

What sets Xumm’s Topper integration apart from existing solutions is its commitment to achieving high conversion rates, ensuring a greater success rate in user transactions and minimising the risk of purchase failures.

With over 600,000 active users spanning various jurisdictions, Xumm has established itself as a go-to platform within the XRP community.

It is noteworthy to mention that Uphold’s Topper is just one of the many fiat on-ramp options incorporated by Xumm.

In addition to Topper, Xumm recently integrated over 100 other payment methods and partnered with several other platforms, including SimpleSwap and GateHub.

This array of choices simplifies the process for users to access XRP and join the XRPL ecosystem.
