Do you own ripple but would you like to convert it back into euros? On our website it’s a walk in the park! In this article we’ll explain how to make this happen.

How do I sell my ripple (XRP)?

Step 1: Create an account on our platform
Step 2: Enter the amount of ripple you would like to sell
Step 3: Send your ripple from your wallet
Step 4: We’ll transfer euros into your bank account

Step 1: Create an account on our platform

Haven’t got an account on our platform yet? Click on ‘Register’ in the top right corner of the screen. Registering an account will only take ten minutes.

In order to create an account you will need to identify yourself. We focus on providing a platform where you can buy and sell cryptocurrencies with the greatest of ease. However, offering services without identifying our users would open the door to illicit activity. For instance it could allow criminals to buy coins with a hacked bank account. We expect that laws and regulations will come into force in the nearby future. To ensure that our customers don’t experience any inconvenience to these potential regulations, we already have a clear KYC policy in place.

The documents we receive from you will be saved to an offline, encrypted hard drive. The provided documents are only available to selected BTC Direct employees, and will never be shared with third parties.
