Arthur Hayes, the Co-Founder, and CEO of BitMEX also reacted to the new development that is seemingly targeted at enhancing the liquidity on the trading platform.

Hayes’ response to the announcement revealed his excitement in welcoming the trading of XRP and USD perpetual swap.

He said, “Is it called Ripple, XRP, or dogshit? Who knows, who cares. It’s worth more than zero so it’s time to trade the USD pair on BitMEX. Boo-Yaka-sha!”

XRP Liquidity on BTC Markets Attains All-Time High

There are indications that the XRP liquidity is on the increase across exchanges, considering the rate of transaction in XRP on BTC Markets, Bitso and across other related exchanges.

About two days ago, Liquidity Index Bot reported that XRP liquidity on BTC Markets, an Australia’s leading crypto exchange, attained an all-time high.

“Liquidity Index for BTC Markets XRP/AUD (28-day moving trend) Day progress: 92% Today so far: 3,712,009 All-Time High: 3,266,533.”

It was also reported on the same day by the Liquidity Index Bot that XRP liquidity on Bitso recorded a new all-time high.

“Liquidity Index for Bitso XRP/MXN (28-day moving trend) Day progress: 92% Today so far: 16,300,686 All-Time High: 15,006,608”

Conclusively, the subsequent liquidity records of the digital token on both exchanges monitored by Liquidity Index Bot reveal that the liquidity of the cryptocurrency keeps moving closer to recording new all-time highs. This shows that XRP is not holding back from gaining traction amidst individuals and institutions.
