The most convenient way for US users to buy Ripple (XRP) or Stellar (XRM) is through Binance. However, you can’t deposit money directly into this app, but you can deposit cryptocurrency like ether or bitcoins to buy other alt-coins.

The easiest way to do that is by using Coinbase, the most popular cryptocurrency app. Despite some delays in transaction times and freezes on new registrations, this combination of Coinbase and Binance has proven to be quite dependable.

Binance in particular, has the added benefit of letting you trade with both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as base currencies, which means you have more options not only in trading, but also in terms of choosing between digital coins based on faster transaction times and lower network fees. You can transfer Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), or Litecoin (LTC) from Coinbase to Binance, but I’ll demonstrate using LTC.

The bulk of the process will be the same regardless of which coin you choose, but note that if you transfer BCH or LTC from Coinbase, you’ll have to convert them into BTC, ETH, or Binance Coin (BNB) to trade the coins on Binance. To start, you’ll need to select the wallet that you’ll be transferring coins out of.

There are three ways to access your wallet in Coinbase — either tap on the coin’s chart, select “Accounts” at the bottom of the screen, or tap “Your Accounts” above the coin’s chart. Tapping on a coin’s chart will take you directly to its landing page, complete with a graph showing its price movements this week. Read more from smartphones.gadgethacks.com…
