A reader pointed out that I was wrong about Ripple getting added to CoinBase in 2018


So earlier this week I wrote a post about Ripple, a cryptocurrency that I’m a fan of and investor in (small time), and how CoinBase had confirmed they were adding it to their platform. I was convinced that CoinBase was adding the cryptocurrency after reading this blog post, which I found out, thanks to  one of my blog readers, Jin turned out to be fake.


After reading this comment I looked into it, and Jin is right. The blog post that I thought came from Ripple actually came from RippleXRP.blog which is not the officially blog of Ripple XRP. The funny thing about it is that a new gTLD fooled me in this case. When I saw RippleXRP.blog, linked to from a Twitter post, I thought it was the Ripple blog.

At any rate, I was wrong, and it looks like CoinBase has not confirmed that they will start to offer Ripple on their platform. That being said, I wouldn’t be too surprised if CoinBase does decide to add Ripple since as of today they are the #3 cryptocurrency and CoinBase already carries Bitcoin Cash (#4) and Litecoin (#5).


So yes, I fell for some serious fake news, and it doesn’t look like CoinBase has announced anything about adding Ripple to their platform (that I have found at least). But look at the top five list above and tell me CoinBase isn’t going to add Ripple in 2018 and I’ll call bullshit 😉

    Don’t feel bad that was an easy one to fall for. The only reason i could see for Coinbase not to take on Ripple is the “overhang” of coins that the founders are holding. We’ll see. Happy New Year.

    Here is the issue with ripple 99,999,999,999 coins in their hands, 38,000,000,000 currently in circulation, if they release 1,000,000,000 per month as they stated they will, every release they will be diluting the price. There are people that think ripple is going to $100, totally out out to lunch, at that would make it a $1.5 TRILLION DOLLAR COIN

    I own XRP, but I am not stupid, nor does what I say matter, but we need to look at the facts

    buy ADA, its massive technology. Instead of buying ripple at high price my recommends are these two.

    1. XLM (fork of ripple – it can buy you more)
    2. ADA (one of the masterpiece of cryptocurrency – after janaury you will be crying to get into ADA for $1 )

    All the best, yes in cryptocurrency, there are two terms

    1. Fomo – fear of missing out (dont day trade crypto currencies – what i have learned)
    2. FUD – People post false news, specially people who are investors, and they try to hype up so lot of people buy so they can dump on those people)

    All the best.

    Great follow thru reporting Morgan!

    We all can fall for that with so many peope posting fake accounts that look real and all of the fake news.

    Kudos to Jin!
    Nice catch and correction.

    I have a snall amount of Ripple as well and i agree about Coinbase potentially adding it to their platform.

    They would be foolish if they did not add it some time soon based on Market Cap and 24 hr volume lately.


    • Morgan December 29, 2017, 11:31 am

      Thanks for the kind words @vito

      @jin – I don’t know much about ADA, what do you think makes it so promising?

      • jin December 29, 2017, 2:05 pm

        when i left a message

        XLM was .21 cent now .31 cent, buy buy buy buy xlm

        ADA — will beat out RIPPLE AND XLM — ONE OF THE apple of the crypto please do research.

        BUY THESE TWO – and thank me

    Somone tell me why CrytpoForecast is up 3000% in the last 24 hrs?

      I have debated enough with domainers, they always through me under the rail , they are speculating, but you are missing to be a part of being something really great.

      Its like domains in 1990s. and cryptos are like 1990s domain era.

      People ask me what is BTC is backed up with ? I tell them nothing, Drink KOOL AID. All the best.

  • jin December 29, 2017, 3:32 pm

    I HODL – 50k Ada
    I HoDL – 50k XLM

    SOLD all XRP – profits 🙂

    Charles Interview for ADA : So many PHDS people backing up this project, its unbelieveable. ada is 4.0

    Bitcoins are dirt in the road when compared with ( .COM Equimoditty Platform Assets )

    As you already know, there are Domains and then there are their Strategic Superiors ( .Com Equimoditty Platform Assets ) . The World will soon know the differences between the two. JAS 12/29/17

    In cryptocurrency trading, you can make money when altcoin prices go up, you can also make money when the prices go down.
    If you are a good trader, you can trade 1 bitcoin and increase to 4 – 8 bitcoin at the end of year.

  • raymond December 30, 2017, 9:54 pm

    If 1 bitcoin increase to $50,000 per year
    You get 6×50,000 = $300,000 per year

  • Liam April 3, 2019, 11:38 am

    I agree with your point. Don’t think much about what others said. You have a long way to go!
