Due to the SEC’s recent action against Ripple Labs, Blockchain.com has halted XRP trading as of Thursday, January 7th at 11:59pm GMT.
If you have an XRP balance on the Exchange, you will still be able to send this XRP to a wallet of your choice, but further XRP deposits will not be possible.
Providing and revoking support for listed assets is an ongoing process. At Blockchain.com, we will continue to monitor developments as they unfold — everything from network security to regulatory compliance and more — as we decide which assets to list and maintain on our Exchange and Wallet.
