On Christmas Day, there were new steps in the eToro and XRP communities. eToro, which is a fintech brokerage company that deals with multiple types of resources, has announced that XRP will finally be available on eToro platform. This is a development that users have seen coming for a while.
The company has decided to try and arouse the participation of the XRP community with a promotion, without commissions for the creation of wallet and wallet transfers. Elaborating in a blog post, eToro He said,
"The current minimum transfer amount is 133 XRP. Coin transfer is available to Gold and above users in countries where the eToro Portfolio is available (to check local availability, refer to your app store). "
During this announcement, eToro took the time to note that these services would only be an option for users who used a wire transfer to deposit their resources. At the moment, the options are limited, but additional payment options should be added soon.
By choosing to use eToro, consumers get the benefit of working with a licensed platform that maintains a healthy level of security. The features have been detailed in the eToro version, which he also said,
"The first 25K users to open an XRP portfolio will receive the wallet for free – and will not be required to pay the cost of the XRP portfolio which is 45 XRP * Coin transfer is available to Gold and above users in countries where the portfolio is available The promotion will be valid until 31.1.2019. "
Unfortunately, the addition of XRP has had some consequences. In particular, social media users have attacked the way eToro is launching and advertising the addition. A member of the XRP community, Tiffany Hayden, commented,
"Social pressure is my only superpower and it did not work. @ EToro does not worry, they do not have your $ XRP, and they're lying to you or find a way to remove yourself from their platform or accept the consequences. # 39; It is nothing I can do.I'm sorry.Ethoro died for me. "
Other members of the community also used this moment to join the discussion. Luke Roberts, a fan of XRP, spoke to the platform saying:
"Dear @eToro @eToroService – as we thank you for creating an e-wallet, #XRPcommunity purchased real #XRP coins using our $ debit / credit cards We can not withdraw our coins if we do not send a bank transfer, making this wallet and all useless initial offers !! "
