US Brokerage Giant TD Ameritrade Explores XRP and More Cryptos For 11 Million Retail Investors
Ripple and their digital asset XRP are still in the spotlight despite the bearish trend that embraced the crypto market this whole year.
Regardless of the market’s fall, Ripple continued with its plans and developments while XRP saw more adoption and increased interest.
Coinbase has just confirmed that it is exploring the addition for Ripple’s digital asset on its exchange platform.
They announced the move when the exchange revealed that it’s considering adding support for a broad range of assets.

TD Ameritrade invested in ErisX
Back in October, the company has invested in ErisX which is a new regulated crypto exchange for spot and futures trading that was opened by Eris Exchange, a derivatives market headquartered in Chicago.
ErisX is built to provider traders access to crypto spot contracts and futures contracts on just one single exchange.
The spokesperson Jessica Darmoni stated that it would allow investors to trade Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Etehreum, and Litecoin, besides futures contracts on cryptos.
Back then, TD Ameritrade explained that its retail clients “are seeking to access and trade digital currency products in the same way they do with traditional capital markets – through a legitimate, regulated and transparent exchange.”
