On Monday (January 14th), Singapore-headquartered cryptocurrency exchange Bitrue announced that by the end of January it would be listing XRP-based trading pairs for EOS, NEM (XEM), Polymath (POLY), and VeChain (VET).
Bitrue, which was founded in 2018, has quickly become a favorite with members of the XRP community because of the high degree of enthusiasm, support, and transparency shown by its management towards XRP. What is interesting about Bitrue is that it supported XRP as a base currency on the day that its trading platform was launched (19 July 2018).
Here is how Bitrue announced today's news on Twitter:
Happy Monday XRPCommunity! We've brought you some love❤️❤️❤️— Bitrue (@BitrueOfficial) January 14, 2019
We're targeting to add 4 more long-waited XRP pairs by end of the month!🙌 By completing this we would have 30 XRP Pairs! #xrpthebase

We need to remember what Bitrue announced on 27 December 2018:
🔥We're happy to announce that we will be on-boarding all #XRP trading pairs in the next couple of months! 🔥— Bitrue (@BitrueOfficial) December 27, 2018

And right after the start of 2019, Bitrue has been working hard to keep this promise:
- January 3rd: XRP-based trading pairs added for TRON TRX), Stellar (XLM), NEO, Gas (GAS), and OmiseGo (OMG).
- January 4th: XRP-based pair added for Bee Token (BEE).
- January 7th: XRP-based trading pairs for Holo (HOT), Pundi X (NPSX), district0x (DNT), and Propy (PRO) announced (to be listed by January 11th).

Also, on January 11th, Bitrue announced that four more XRP trading pairs would get listed within the next 2-3 weeks (i.e. by January 31th):
✨Honesty, transparency, commitment to the XRP community, and top-notch customer service are what @Curis_Wang and the team believe in. In 2-3 weeks we will be having 30 $XRP Pairs! ✨✨✨🤗💪💪💪 https://t.co/DafyGTUjbT— Bitrue (@BitrueOfficial) January 11, 2019
And since we had 26 XRP trading pairs before today's announcement, it looks like Bitrue will have at least 30 XRP trading pairs by the end of this month, just as they promised on January 11th.
