About This Club

Welcome to the '2theMoon! For Real' The Club! This club is to organize, track and participate in the project sending XRP to the moon.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. I know speculating on who the 3 money transfer companies are that Ripple is partnering with is well just that, speculation. However, If you look at the information below I think it is easy to see how the dots connect and if PayPal uses Ripple and XRP then that will be very good for hodlers. 3 of the worlds top 5 money transfer companies plan to use XRP in 2018 according to Ripple as confirmed by Brad Garlinghouse and Ripple The 5 companies are: 1 - Western Union 2 - MoneyGram 3 - TransferWise 4 - WorldRemit 5 - PayPal Paypal was co-founded by Peter Thiel in 1999 according to Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Thiel Asheesh Birla, the VP of Product at Ripple, tweeted this
  3. Please Guys , I dont mean to be a killjoy but: Remember dont risk money that you cant afford to lose. PLEASE NOTHING IS GUARANTEED IN LIFE
  4. Just received the coins we ordered, and they are even better the expected! Thank you @Mercury for making this happen! I can barely wait for the coin moon launch in 2019 and the *other* moon launch, which may happen even sooner. Great job with some real creativity, kudos!
  5. It is! My French-Canadian wife used the computer last :P- fixed. See?! I knew it was a good thing to check first! Of course since we have no idea when it would be redeemed we might need to use binary or some other universal language...

  6. Message to Include on coin

    Is that the French way of spelling protocol?
  7. As most are no doubt aware the first batch of 2theMoon medallions has been shipped out. The last straggler is the one that will actually travel to the moon. I am just about to pay the 20XRP to activate the address and would like to post a message in the memo field. Not only would this message be linked to the address of the coin on moon (and accessed via barcode information) it will live on the rledger. As promised I am including all the names that made the Wall of Awesomeness. Here is the message so far: This coin has been sent into space to showcase the potential of cryptocurrency XRP, the ripple protocol and was made possible by the members of the XRPChat Community. Special mention goes to Dennis, Dizer, EasterBunny, GreyAndroidGravy, JohnRevheim, kanaas, midair77, nsfp, ThomasTheTGV, UrzasLegacy, Wobile, Xi195, zero-2-9 for initial backing and support of this project. Any other suggestions?
  8. Project Overview

    Agree with all of the above, and I do deeply "heart" everything Canadian, or almost everything.
  9. Project Overview

    At least all the great Pens captains are Canadian, but as for the team itself... They broke my heart last year. Beating Ottawa in double over time in game seven in a Stanley Cup series...
  10. Project Overview

    yeah......???????? Diehard Crosby/Pens fan, sorry dude.....
  11. Project Overview

    Seriously. You're going there?
  12. Project Overview

    This is soooo cool, thanks, @Mercury. And I just read this about the DHL Moonbox project: "DHL will be in charge of the outbound delivery and transport to Astrobotic in Pittsburgh (USA), where the little packages will be stored for safekeeping until the first lunar mission." My hometown!!! WOO-HOO! First the Stanley Cup, and now THIS??
  13. First purchase was the coins that @Mercury is minting. My second purchase was the telescope that I used to take this sweet moon photo. My friend offered me a really good price considering what he's put into it, AND he let me pay him in XRP. I gave him a slip of paper, showed him how to check the account balance, and told him never to type in the secret key. I gave him the option to sell back the slip of paper in 2 years time, for the agreed purchase price in USD or equivalent XRP market price in USD in 2 years, whichever was greater. He's not a crypto-investor and I doubt he'll try and cash it out, but he stands a chance of earning enough for a much nicer telescope in 2 years.
  14. Just to wet your Thanksgiving appetite... here is a pic I snapped outside my dentist office this morning- You know you live in Canada when a turkeys can be found in the middle of the Capital. What really made LOL was the grocery store a couple blocks away had ran out for frozen turkeys...
  15. Project Overview

    Update I just completed the purchase of a silver medallion to donate as a wallet for the MoonBox!
  16. I am purchasing the silver coin this batch to act as the wallet for the MoonBox.
  17. Duties and Officers

    Made up a little press release just to have something on hand if need be: I like @Dennissuggestions. I have been tad distracted with the coins themselves, but the big what is next question is a good one to have.
  18. Duties and Officers

    Great idea. I am with you on this one. Something with the speed and reliability in relation to the rocket moon mission (can be added to point 1) Economic Crisis Prevention Tool (ECPT certified ) Star Trek, Sci Fi, an IOV, liquid assets, a new world.. to boldly go where few man have gone before.....
  19. I like the idea of keeping the wallet open. Who knows, one day we could use it as a scholarship program or some sort of grant fund that people can both donate to and bid for based on a myriad of qualifying options. Another thought - Assume that CNBC, Bloomberg, MSNBC, CNN, etc will be covering this topic. What message do we want to send outside of the awesomeness of sending XRP to the Moon? Do we want to have another layer to the story? Something that educates people about XRP and Ripple? Crypto in general? Here's a rough outline of my point: 1. XRP to the moon! - Neat idea - a little gimmicky but the cool factor outweighs the gimmick (if this is the only message i think it will be the new BTC pizza) 2. The Versatility of digital currency - showing how donations can be tracked, etc. (important but there needs to be a reason people should care) 3. The other side of digital money raising - Philanthropy (the more i think about this the more I think this is a critical piece) 4. Open to suggestions... It has been my experience that the best way to plan for success is to think with the end in mind, and over plan for every scenario. I think we have a tremendous opportunity here regardless of how much attention it gets, and as such we should come up with an end goal, and plan everything so it aligns with that goal. Wow, so that was a longer post than I originally expected. Interested in hearing feedback.
  20. If you have not done so please visit this post: I mention I will personally purchase one coin for use in the MoonBox. Some additional facts and info: For the first batch I will purchase a silver coin. If the batch sells incredibly fast (before the MoonBox deadline) I am willing to partner with other member to upgrade this to a gold version. In the event we do not meet the pre-order limits we will revert back to a paper wallet as designed by the community- the MoonBox has been purchased and will be sent be assured- it is not held hostage to the coins success Also note that in the near future a paper wallet that can pre loaded will also be released. Ideally the art work will also come form the community- perhaps one of the deigns already released
  21. Project Overview

    Sept. 23 Update An announcement in the main forum will be released shortly on another 2theMoon development.
  22. such a cool initiative! great for raising awareness around ripple and xrp... marketing gurus, do you think we should have any sort of strategy with regards to promoting this story? would be cool to have a link to a really basic landing page showing the certificate or mission objective or something like that, that would be easy to share on social media.. or maybe @hodor can do a write up on it (if you havent already!) so we can share a link to his blog - that way people can access all the other awesome information that is on there at the same time! any thoughts?
  23. Project Overview

    This shows a lot about the community. It's very exciting. If anyone else heads up another xrp, promo, awareness project, count me in as a sponsor.
  24. Project Overview

    Yes! There is tracking too! https://www.astrobotic.com/moon-box
  25. Project Overview

    This is exciting! 🌚🌜
