When you buy ripple (XRP) on our platform, we ask you to enter a receiving address and a destination tag.
You copy the receiving address from your wallet and paste it on the order form of BTC Direct. This way we know where to send the XRP to. Are you sending the XRP to your own wallet? Then leave the destination tag blank and proceed with the order.
Are you sending the XRP to an exchange? Then you do need to fill in a destination tag. This is a number sequence which functions like a payment reference.
