I want to buy some ripple using bitcoin, but shapeshift sets a minimum for the transaction that is way above the initial deposit of 20 XRP necessary for an unfunded ripple wallet. At the moment of writing this, shapeshift requires a minimum deposit of 0.01451925 BTC, which is 93.43467259 XRP. But I don't want to buy so many XRPs.

Besides, changelly doesn't currently support ripple.

  • You should use Altcoin Converter from AltTopia.net. It supports small amounts. May 26, 2019 at 19:31

You can view all exchanges that support converting XRP <-> BTC on coinmarketcap.com . Here are all the markets that XRP trades on. Just look for markets that say XRP/BTC.

I've successfully exchanged XRP on Bitstamp and Poloniex.


You can get help from a Coin Exchange Service aggregator like CoinSwappy.

For XRP needs you can see these 3 exchange support the XRP purchase.

  • It seems at the time your were checking the web changelly did support ripple, but I have checked changelly a few times and I still don't see ripple there. It seems they are having some issues with ripple right now.
