Ripple XRP Margin Traders Label Bitrue a Scam
Although the error was quickly rectified, it was enough to cause misunderstanding and anger among some users. Futures traders reported that their open positions on this trading pair were closed because of the error.
XRP never traded below $0.46 on other platforms during this uncertain period.
Bitrue Exchange Breaks Silence
While the subject of the XRP price at $0 stirred Twitter, the exchange also took to the social network to comment on the problem.
For users who have been liquidated, all losses will be nullified and their margin amount will be refunded to their accounts.
On the day, the XRP price is down 3.1%. This decline followed a significant capital flight from the crypto market yesterday evening. After trading above $0.48 for the entire day, Ripple’s token is now trading at $0.44.
Moral of the story: no, a $0 XRP is not at fault for the price drop.
