    Sadad Bahrain (payment company) using xRapid

    ICICI is partnered with Stellar, also there is still no progress on lifting crypto ban and it seems it got worse, Zebpay, one of the biggest exchange in India has announced they are moving to Malta and will provide service to 21 European countries. The amount of remittance is huge in India, the biggest market in the world, so the volume needs to be increasing on exchanges to fulfill this where as it has been declining rapidly and has gone completely downhill now. Unless they will use multi-hop I don't think xRapid will work in that corridor which is the biggest.
  5. Interesting, thanks @Tehol_Beddict - I seem to remember that the Saudi fellow on the panel at the Swell conference stated that all the Saudi banks are already interconnected, all the same ATMs etc. and that is why they don't see a problem with integrating regulation for cryptocurrency. Maybe somebody can pinpoint that video... I will later if I get the time.

    I believe they are connected to SADAD in Saudi Arabia: https://www.sadad.com/en/Pages/Overview.aspx “Launched by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) in 2004, SADAD Payment System first served as the national Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) service provider for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Today, SADAD facilitates and streamlines a wide range of payment transactions for individuals, banks, businesses, and the government sector, while continuing to develop new payment products and services. SADAD aims at providing you with one solution for all payments.” On SADAD Bahrain site: https://sadadbahrain.com/news-osn.html “The service follows the successful implementation of bill payments through UAE Exchange branches earlier this year, which was the first exchange house in the UAE to partner with OSN for cash payments, as well as the launch of the SADAD Electronic Bill Payment System in Saudi Arabia last month and additional bill payments through ENBD ATMs across UAE.”

    Ripple Presentation Prepared for Fides

    What’s with the last slide? Talk about point out the bad points of crypto?!
  9. Hi all, I've created a client side wallet for the XRP ledger. I'm still working on it, cleaning it up, and adding new features. But I'm an electrician by trade here in Montana, USA with 3 kids so it's kind of a weekend deal at the moment. Also the code might be ugly... I wrote it in Javascript to interact with the ripple API but it's coming along and I'm learning more every week. My SSL certificate is still pending verification by godaddy so maybe don't try to send payments using your main wallet address yet... I'm testing it using a burner wallet with a couple XRP but it works! If you don't have a burner you could try just checking your wallet balance... Any comments/suggestions/support would be rad. Thanks! www.codezerp.com is the link.

    @Tehol_Beddict Thanks for all the research and stuff you bring to the board, I truly appreciate it and so do many others P.S. Congrats on your well deserved GOLD SQL* *Sir Quality Likebaiter
  13. Much happened pre bubble won't happen again post bubble. See the .com bubble for reference. Doesn't mean crypto wont be huge just wont be in weeks, months, but now it will be years. Many will leave the space and have as this has become a long haul investment and still very risky. If you didn't live through .com it may be hard to relate too.

    XRP Chat Millionaires (Paper & Real!)

    Yeah, but you're still describing a risk tolerance scenario. A lot of people (probably most) wouldn't risk 6 million in order to potentially gain 50 million, but some would. But a higher risk tolerance isn't stupid, making bets without being aware of the risks is. When you see people who say "If I make $X dollars, I'll sell Y%, to lock in my gains," they all think that they have the 'right' answer, but there are just as many opinions on what X and Y should be as there are investors, all bickering over the values. The reason why nobody can agree is because the moving variable is everyone's risk tolerance. People with higher risk tolerances are willing to risk more for a lower rate of return, and that's fine, as long as the person is willing to accept a failure scenario. Where people get stupid is when they start saying things like XRP's success is a given. Really, no it's not. Ripple is very well run, and there is a clear market case, all of which makes XRP a much safer investment than most other cryptos out there, but the space is still risky, and if you invest without acknowledging that risk, and measuring it up against your own personal risk tolerance, that's when you are making a mistake.

    Ripple Presentation Prepared for Fides

    SME= Small-to-medium-enterprise. We already knew AMEX (American Express) is one of Ripples greatest partners, but not the extent. This is global infrastructure being built on a scale only comparale to the Internet itself people. Also notice that SWIFT is one of Fides most important partners.
  19. More like BW 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 according to this theory
  20. Just a theory.... There is no doubt in my mind that there is a significant group of international banks ' who do not want to rock the boat' and want to sneak into the crypto market as quiet as possible.... So Ripple leaves it to their customers (banks etc...) to decide when they feel 'comfortable' to communicate about their endavours in the public domain. This article from the 14th of september gives some insight into their plans: https://abacusjournal.com/bank-of-america-merrill-lynch-preparing-bitcoin-trading-product-similar-to-goldman-sachs-and-morgan-stanley/ Some quotes from the article: "Our source on this intel comes from inside Merrill Lynch and closes the loop connected to Bakkt as well: “The same structures (as Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs) are being built here as well. And if we are being as transparent as we can be at the moment – it is in direct response to what we believe Bakkt is going to provide and the liquidity with which these things are going to trade. Liquidity and custody make this a much easier conversation and dampens the risk for the firm and the bank. That is more important than being a half-step slow compared to Goldman or Morgan Stanley. But Bakkt is filling that gap for all of us. Expect this type of product to be a Bitcoin staple by the middle of 2019.”" Bakkt is playing a serious role with these developments and the following quote may be why: “**A reminder of what Bakkt is and what it will actually launch in November of this year, via Forbes’ excellent article in early August: “Bakkt plans to offer a full package combining a major CFTC-regulated exchange with CFTC-regulated clearing and custody, pending the approval from the commission and other regulators. Bakkt will provide access to a new Bitcoin trading platform on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange. And it will also offer full warehousing services, a business that ICE doesn’t have. “Bakkt’s revenue will come from two sources,” says Loeffler, “the trading fees on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange, and warehouse fees paid by the customers that buy Bitcoin and store with Bakkt.” “Step back and consider what you just read. A CFTC-regulated exchange, clearing, and custody. Some have often called Bitcoin ‘digital gold’. The infrastructure that Bakkt has built and is set to unleash takes the term ‘digital gold’ and makes it a reality.” As these plans turn into actual products the scale of trading connected to Bitcoin and it’s derivatives will explode. 2019 could be a year that Bitcoin, and the crypto ecosystem takes off in a way that even the most bullish among us can’t envision.

    Two... First is that this might actually be an inadvertent slip. That's happened with marketing materials many times in many companies. Second is that folks think Ripple drive the announcements... Instead it's the customers that actually do. Ripple will always be bound by the customers desires which might include non disclosure. There are competitive advantages to not revealing your hand in business.... Especially regarding your actual transaction cost which as we know is massively cheaper if using XRapid. I'm not at all certain, and this could in fact be just a screwup where they got the product name wrong and it's actually XCurrent, but if it's real it might mean that it's actually the Indian bank using XRapid. That would be profound on two fronts... firstly ITS A BANK. And secondly it is in India. That would mean that the regulators in India have signed off on XRapid. Lastly, please cool your jets... mine are overheating...
  22. Nope...I was part of a private sector delegation that went to Bahrain with Manuel but didn’t forge any relationship with her. For what it’s worth, she’s one of the most impressive people I’ve encountered. Whip smart.

    Institutional investment coming up

    If this happens I can see it being the mother of all bubbles. People are feeling hurt now after total market cap dropped from 800 billion down to 200 billion, what if the next drop is from 10 trillion down to 200 billion...
