In order to activate a wallet, a deposit of at least 20 XRP has to be made. The first 20 XRP deposited to a Ripple account are reserved and cannot be withdrawn. This is called the XRP reserve.

Activate your wallet with XRP

Deposit at least 20 XRP to your Ripple wallet address from another service or wallet.

Wallet address can be found in “WALLET”.

Note that 20 of the XRP used to activate a wallet cannot be withdrawn. Read more about XRP reserve here.

Once your first deposit arrives, GateHub will fund the destination wallet with 20 XRP and send you an email with instructions to enable the deposited currency in your wallet. This process is called setting a trust line.

Your Ripple wallet should be activated within 24 hours after your first non-XRP deposit arrives.

When your Ripple wallet is active and the proper trust lines are established, your first deposit should get credited within a few hours.

Note that GateHub will only fund one Ripple wallet per account.
