The community’s growing interest in XRP is a sign that the token is gaining public acceptance and of course, institutions that adapt to these trends are the most likely to evolve in the ecosystem.
So far the TD Ameritrade team has not given more concrete statements, but the firm’s bullish stance towards Ripple’s token is of great importance to those who make investments focusing in the mid-term future.
TD Ameritrade’s response sparked positive reactions by Twitter users, especially among “fans” of the token who quickly expressed their enthusiasm assuring that this decision could increase the number of customers currently running the platform.
Right now XRP is being traded at around 0.29 USD per token. Its behavior has been quite stable during the last hours. According to data provided by TradingView such price is located near the Record lows for 2018.
