What does this all mean? How do I see how many XRP do I get with one € or how many euros is one XRP? Bids are buyers and asks sellers or am I wrong?

If im not mistaken one XRP is about 0,01 $ so these orderbook figures just doesn't seem to make any sense to me.

What is the website?

If you check on bitstamp (for btc) :
https://www.bitstamp.net/market/order_book/

You can see bids (buyers) for $122.92 or less, and asks (sellers) for $122.94 or higher

I do not know about it, but it is really strange because:
1) gap between bids and asks is really high (more than bid price).
2) Volume is really really low.

Click on my link, and you will see a proper order book

Then there is this. According to this https://ripplecharts.com/market/USD:Bitstamp/XRP, one XRP is about 0,01 $, if I go to bitstamp-> buy XRP it says I would only get 74 XRP for one $.

It's quite simple. Size is the number of euros that people are offering to buy/sell, price is the number of ripples they want per euro, and sum is the cumulative total sizes of the orders, ie, the total number of euros that must be bought/sold to reach that price.

To give an example of how it works, say you want to trade 10 euros for ripples at market. How many ripples would you get? Well, you'd get the best bid price for your euros, which in this case is 81.37 XRP per euro. But you can only sell 5 euros at that price, so for the remaining 5 euros, you get the next best bid, which is 80.98 XRP per euro. But again, you can only sell 4.35 euros (9.35 total) at that price, so you sell the remaining 0.65 euros for the next best bid after that (75 XRP per euro). This bid is finally large enough to sell all your remaining euros, so we're all done, and you've sold 5 euros for 81.37 XRP each (406.85 XRP), 4.35 euros for 80.95 XRP each (352.1325 XRP), and 0.65 euros for 75 XRP each (48.75 XRP), for a grand total of 406.85 + 352.1325 + 48.75 = 807.7325 XRP. Average price = 80.77325 XRP per euro (or 0.01238 euros per XRP if you prefer).

Buying euros with ripples follows the exact same sequence, only you use asks instead of bids (and so you'll pay at least 205 XRP per euro due to the massive bid/ask spread resulting from the ridiculous illiquidity).

^^^^^ @Foxpup describes it perfectly.

When I first saw this on ripple I also thought WTF!

I couldn't imagine that the spread could be that wide in an operating market.

But it is and it indicates an almost non operating market.

Thank you! Trying to figure that out was driving me nuts, it makes sense now Smiley.

Could someone send me couple of XPR's so I could test selling and buying, I mean just a few like 0,01 $ or something if you did get the 10 000 XPR's from Ripple giveaway? I wasn't eligible for the giveaway here since i'm a longtime lurker and haven't registered before february :/

It shows depth in EUR and price in XRP/EUR so you do the math.  Cheesy
