Hi @Dimamisha,

The Ripple blockchain requires that amount in order to activate your wallet and prevent spam or malicious usage. Please be informed that Trust Wallet is not the one who made this rule. This is how things work with the XRP network.

This I realized. What do you need to make coins go to the purse, and not just was the purchase report?.

Pardon? Can you rephrase your question? Didn’t quite catch that.

I purchased XRP last night with Smart Chain. Why isn’t all of the XRP showing up in Trust Wallet until I go to swap in Pancake ?
