Hey! I am new here, thanks for this awesome website I found here a lot of useful information. I've never used exchange services (all I have is 0.5 bitcoins on my computer that I've purchased about 3 years ago from my friend). I want to invest 50% of my 0.5 bitcoins to Ripple. I read here that this cruptcurrency is centralized, but I am not looking for fast return of my investments. I've registered an account on Binance and want to buy some XRP there and then withdraw coins to a hardware wallet. Could you please explain me step-by-step how I can buy ripple on Binance?
