XRP/Ripple minimum balance and destination tag

Modified on Thu, 19 Oct 2023 at 01:49 PM

Ripple - XRP is a special cryptocurrency that has built-in rules on the minimum balance held in the XRP wallet. In order to send from your Ripple wallet you have to hold more than 10 XRP in it.

10 XRP minimum cannot be moved out.

A destination tag is a unique 9-digit figure that can be used additionally to the recipient's wallet address. It is usually REQUIRED when sending funds to crypto exchanges or anyone else that explicitly asks you to use it (the exchange will provide you with information) to identify the receiver in a Ripple transaction. It is not required when you send XRP funds to your BC Vault XRP wallet.

We have seen situations where some exchanges refuse to send XRP to wallets that do not already contain 10 XRP and incorrectly report the address of the empty wallet as "invalid". We recommend you to send min. 10 XRP to your empty XRP wallet on the BC Vault with the help of built-in Changelly Exchange functionality (use BTC, ETH, LTC...).
