The Exodus crypto trading platform has listed Ripple (XRP) and TrueUSD (TUSD) on its platform. The company announced the same through a blog post. The company quoted, “A TUSD token is worth 1 USD. Fiat-backed cryptocurrencies are pretty stable and are something which the users of the platform had been asking for from quite a long time.”

The founder of Litecoin, Charlie Lee tweeted, “The phone will support LTC and Lightning Network on Litecoin natively!” It is also reported that the blockchain-based smartphone would support Bitcoin and Ethereum.
