Ripple’s market cap shot up more than 2x in the last week alone taking Ripple’s market cap to nearly 30 billion USD. While there are many platforms where Indians can buy Bitcoin and Ethereum, Ripple coin exchanges are very few in India. Below, we look at some cryptocurrency platforms where people can buy Ripple (XRP) in India in INR.

List of platforms to buy Ripple (XRP) in INR:

1. Koinex:

Koinex is a Mumbai based cryptocurrency exchange platform where users can trade Ripple. Apart from XRP, they also support other currencies including Bitcoin and Ethereum. Koinex charges 0.25% fee from buyers and 0.2% from sellers, but seller fees are waived off until December 31, 2017.

2. btcxIndia

btcxIndia is the first platform in India which was launched where users can buy and sell Ripple. Trading fees on btcxindia are at 1%. It was launched in March 2016 in partnership directly with Ripple Labs, the parent company of Ripple coin. Currently, there is a hold on new account creations at btcxIndia due to high demand. So, if you want to trade Ripple, you may want to check with the other 2 platforms.

3. CoinDelta

CoinDelta offers trading of buy and sell trading of Ripple, along with other currencies such as Ethereum and Litecoin. While the seller fee is 0%, buyer fee is 0.3%.

4. BuyUCoin

        There is no legal way per se, but Koinex is one of the safe platforms to do so. Be aware that crypto investments are extremely volatile and RBI issued warnings to cryptocurrency investors on the risks of crypto trading.

    Koinex is not allowing creation of new user due to some maintaince so i suggest open account in gatehub and deal with exchanger point and take small QTY if required. they take payment from NEFT/RTGS/IMPS/Paytm. Do mention your oder id when transfering funds and you will get a call from them. Generally transfer happens in few minutes. Dont risk large amount as i have not tried those yet but for small orders all of my friends got ripple without any hassles.

      Gatehub is another headache, verification is stuck there since 15 days, neither declining nor approving. Not even replying to emails.
