A fundamental link between the world of digital currency and the long-established, traditional way of banking is Ripple, credibly designed to revamp how financial companies deal with moving money. But now, Ripple is working non-stop to get listed on the two large scale US-cased cryptocurrency exchanges, Coinbase and Gemini. Last year, anonymous sources reported that Ripple offered to pay around $100 million in XRP to Coinbase and a cash payment of $1 million to Gemini, the cryptocurrencies market leaders, in exchange for a listing.
