After a rumor-filled day which saw the Cobalt update being delayed again, the XRP community breathed a sigh of relief post Bitrue exchange’s announcement of adding XRP as a base pair against three cryptocurrencies viz, Basic Attention Token [BAT], DASH, and STORM.
Bitrue is a Singapore-based exchange, but has offices all across the world, including in US and Japan. The exchange announced the development via Twitter:

The exchange upgraded their wallet for XRP and resumed the deposit and withdrawal of XRP on March 23, 2019. Moreover, the exchange has over 34 cryptocurrencies paired to XRP, including Bitcoin Cash [BCH], EOS, Ethereum Classic [ETC], GAS, and OmiseGo [OMG].
Bitrue also included other programs for XRP to attract users to its platform as it announced an XRP airdrop and a 7.3% interest program for XRP in March 2019. The airdrop was extended to two weeks after users requested for the same.

@plitern1, a Twitter user, commented:
“Thank you for the continued roll-out of XRP base pairs!
This is how the whole echosystem of crypto starts to mature as a whole: The diminishing correlation to the Btc peg. It’s not only great for #XRP but for everyone that likes crypto & wants crypto as a whole to succeed. ”
Another Twitter user, @super_dog79, commented:
“Your response to your customers is endearing. It won’t belong before you’re the preferred exchange of retail customers . Great platform !”
The stigma of XRP being a security has been reducing after more and more exchanges began adding XRP to their exchanges. In addition to listing XRP, they are also adding XRP as base pairs.
Moreover, March seems to be favoring XRP adoption as CoinField also announced the addition of 130+ pairs against XRP on their testnet in March 2019. Sharia-compliant Middle East exchange Rain also added XRP to its roster of cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, UK’s PayGlobal also added the XRP feature to their platform, allowing users to convert their crypto to fiat with a new bank card.
