The Ripple and XRP community had a great wee and enough reasons to celebrate.
For starters, the Binance CEO has finally acknowledged the huge potential that Ripple and its products hold for the future.
Changpeng Zhao just announced that the crypto exchange would be teaming up with Ripple in order to boost the XRP-powered product xRapid.
Zhao said that they have not yet begun the process of establishing this partnership, but this is definitely in the cards for the two companies.
For now, Binance will remain focused on launching the Binance Chain and its forthcoming decentralized exchange Binance DEX.
CZ explained that “We’re focused on launching more features right now, so we are working with a number of other partners. With xRapid, there’s nothing going on right now, but in the future, we’ll definitely want to add them as a partner.”

They will do this by offering interested crypto enthusiasts and not only to buy fractions of high-priced shares such as Amazon, Netflix or Facebook and also exchange-traded funds with Ripple’s digital asset XRP.
