On Monday (January 7th), cryptocurrency exchange Bitrue announced that by the end of this week it would be adding support for four new XRP trading pairs: HOT/XRP; NPXS/XRP; NT/XRP; and PRO/XRP.
Bitrue, which was founded in 2018, has quickly become a favorite with members of the XRP community because of the enthusiasm and support 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 the exchange announced today's news on Twitter:

We have to remember what Bitrue announced on 27 December 2018:
