Japans second-largest cryptocurrency XRP has been added to the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, BitFlyer. XRP is second only to Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of trading volumes in japan. This marks XRPs presence in the Japanese Altcoin Market. It is their first addition of new virtual currency in almost 2 years.

Bitflyer is a Japan-based bitcoin exchange open 24 hours a day. It is one of the most active exchanges especially known for its JPY/BTC pair. They also allow BTC/ETH trading. In fact, they are recognized as one of the ten exchanges with real trading volumes.

Japanese users of BitFlyer can now buy and sell Ripples XRP using their web platform or through their bitFlyer Wallet app (iOS and Android). However, this facility is only available on BitFlyer Japan and not on the U.S. or Europe versions.

Andy Bryant, the co-head and COO of BitFlyer Europe says that they intend to create a global platform for traders the world over. They are, therefore, offering more options for their international customers.

For example, in September BitFlyer Europe added trading support for bitcoin cash (BCH), ether classic (ETC), litecoin (LTC), Lisk (LSK) and monacoin (MONA), while BitFlyer U.S. added support for BCH, ETH and LTC.

Interestingly, to commemorate the launch of a new cryptocurrency in almost two years, i.e., XRP, BitFlyer has also started a campaign in which 10 customers will get 100,000 yen who would trade at least a total of 5,000 JPY worth of XRP during the campaign which is scheduled to end on December 26, 2019.
