Send, receive, and exchange to and from XRP and TUSD seamlessly.
You can now send, receive, and exchange to and from Ripple in Exodus. This is not a drill; Ripple is now supported in Exodus. We’ve been looking forward to writing these words for quite some time now and are overjoyed to finally share the good news.
During the months we’ve spent perfecting the Ripple wallet, many of you wrote in expressing your enthusiasm for XRP and asking us for a timeline for when we would add it to Exodus. Your emails, Slack messages, and tweets pushed us to deliver this functionality to you and we thank you for keeping us motivated. Nothing keeps us on our game more than hearing your thoughts about what you want to see in Exodus, and we encourage you to keep speaking your mind to us on our social media channels and in our inbox.
The fun doesn’t stop with Ripple! We’ve also added TrueUSD (TUSD), our first stablecoin, for sending, receiving, and exchanging as well. As if two new assets weren’t enough, customers running Mac operating systems can now automatically update their wallets in-app (Windows is next folks, stay tuned!) and we’ve also added support for Digibyte S-addresses. Jeez, I am looking at this list and I think it is safe to say the devs worked their butts off this time.
Ripple Makes Waves
You don’t have to use your imagination anymore! This is what lightning fast transactions look like in your Exodus wallet from now on:
To receive Ripple in Exodus there is no need to use a destination tag, your receiving address is enough! To send Ripple with a destination tag, click on the advanced button and enter it in the pop-out window.

The One TrueUSD
Those of you who exchange professionally in Exodus have been asking us to add stablecoins to our exchange lineup for quite some time. This is because having a cryptocurrency that is “pegged” to a fiat asset, meaning that its value is tied to a traditional currency like the dollar or euro, allows you to hedge your profits when the market takes a dive. TrueUSD is pegged to the US dollar, one TUSD = 1 US dollar, and we are excited to add it to our ecosystem.
The use of stable coins like TUSD comes with a caveat, and we encourage you to read this article we’ve written about counterparty risk to learn more about exactly how fiat-backed cryptocurrencies work under the hood.
Let Us Upgrade You
We’ve added a function that will allow Mac users to upgrade to future versions of Exodus automatically from within the application as soon as they sign in. No more checking our release page at the witching hour or writing into support to realize you are seven versions behind!
We are looking forward to adding auto-update support for Windows users as well. Stay tuned to these release notes for further updates.
KNC + PPT Get Makeovers
Friends don’t let friends go out looking anything less than their best. Populous (PPT) and Kyber Network Token (KNC) got added to our exchange and promptly decided to exchange their logos for better ones:
Now that’s style!
The S Is for Supported
Ardent Digibyte fans rejoice! You can now send to Digibyte “S” addresses from Exodus as you would a normal DGB address.
No more red “invalid” errors! What a calming sight to see.
Next Release: Friday, August 31st
If you thought that this was a jam-packed release, wait until you seen what we have in store for you in two weeks! Be sure to continue checking our releases page for patches, unless you’ve gotten the auto upgrade with this release of course. Remember to keep your funds safe, and we will see you soon.
