Rumors that Ripple (XRP) will be added to Coinbase have emerged again as top execs for both companies hit the airwaves this week.
Comments on social media are showing that investors expect XRP price to continue Monday’s gains ahead of a scheduled appearance by Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse on CNBC’s “Fast Money” Tuesday. Also appearing on the program is Coinbase COO Asiff Hirji. This coincidence is raising speculation that the major U.S. exchange will soon add support for XRP trading.
Similar speculation occured in late 2017 but the rumors have never been corobberatedby an official team member. Coinbase goes on to write,
Our January 4th, 2018 statement continues to stand: we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase.
Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company. https://t.co/X04oN6BcGp
