‘They know what’s coming’
The discussion started on the @TheCryptHawk Twitter page, where the owner announced the news.
In the comment thread, the followers added that Bitstamp soon plans to do likewise with the XRP pair and that other crypto exchanges will follow the suit.

The intriguing phrase there was ‘they know what’s coming’, which was meant to be about XRP.
Bitstamp enables direct GBP transactions
Previously, it was announced that the Bitstamp exchange, which allegedly also plans to add the XRP/GBP pair soon, had teamed up with the BCB Group to allow its traders to conduct direct deposits and withdrawals of the pound sterling to Bitstamp.
This seems in line with the aforementioned assumption that the exchange plans to pair XRP with GBP.
