  1. Past hour
  2. pfff, im in this for the long run, you need to be more committed & get off the fence before your arse is hurt!
  3. yerr-nah your such an example of what you speak of! Amazing you know your bank is using xCurrent. Donโ€™t know how you can tolerate spending any time on XRP Chat or at yer fkn bank. Itโ€™s got to be driving you crazy! Pick another asset that is going to perform and save yourself from the XRP madness! Donโ€™t waste your time with sick and angry masses. Thereโ€™s no future in it.
  4. A very cogent and well reasoned argument. Can you explain exactly how XRP could or would be used to avert a credit lock-up like we almost had in 2008? That liquidity crisis, or one like it? I'm not busting your chops.....I want to understand better how it would work. I don''t have all the pieces laid out in my mind. Because that is what you mean when you say liquidity crisis. Yes? I know that the successor to the dollar as the Reserve Currency has been seen (by the CB's) as the SDR basket or some other basket...rather than the Reminbi (as I used to think). I think that's correct. Yes? No? And I understand that eliminating cash transactions is a goal of all banks (and governments)... Said to be in order to force people to accept "negative interest rates" (aka being robbed by your bank) but also with the unstated goal of eliminating financial privacy and putting an end to underground economies that don't pay tax. Yes? And I understand that digitization of money is already here and will become universal. I think cash is doomed. It will take some false-flag financial crash event to make many people accept it completely., maybe.....but maybe that isn't even necessary. Because it is much more convenient for personal bookkeeping, most of us use digital money as much as possible already.....and now people pay with their phones. ( I don't, but I'm over sixty. I see it coming everywhere I look though..) Except for a few old people and black marketeers. Whole Foods Market here won't take a check now. I wonder if they would take cash if there was simply a new law that said it was okay to not ACCEPT cash as legal tender? I bet they would just say "Sorry." You wouldn't have to eliminate cash...just make hard to use in most places and easier to and less painful to use digibits And blockchain money could make every transaction have provenance and transparency....which is good from an organizational standpoint but horrible from a privacy standpoint. But I doubt I'll be asked to vote on it. lol. As soon as I really started learning about blockchain the first thing I saw was that it would (when it was eventually understood well) really appeal to the IRS and the Congress. Right now they're worried about Bitcoin, the Rogue Money of the People....but at some point they will understand that they could use blockchain as a tool to enslave us even more than we already are....it's a two edged sword. Are you thinking that XRP could simply become the world's single digital currency? Because I suppose it is possible. I believe that there is a globalist agenda among certain world elites. Not sure it's close to becoming reality,.....but a single, traceable, world-wide digital currency would take us much closer to it. This sort of thing has happened before.....and people accepted it. I always tend to think people will protest.....but it might slide right on by. When they wanted to start a federal income tax, it was justified to Americans because it was wartime (WWI). When they began withholding tax from employee paychecks it was another war (WWII) , and another sacrifice they said had to be made. On both those occasions it was promised that it would be temporary, but they forgot about that promise after the wars. Now we're more or less at war with somebody all the time anyway. One more sacrifice. --------------------- What I don't see or understand is how fast bank settlement averts the next global credit melt-down. Am I missing something? Is that somehow part of averting a crash? Because we have a lot of well-informed people on this forum who say the value of XRP is going to come primarily from its intended use case of cross-border settlement. With a world financial crisis, transaction speed is not part of the solution...if anything, it's part of the problem, looks like to me anyway. And Central Banks...would they somehow be able to disenfranchise the XRP Hodlrs by just making an XRP knock-off, like Jed did? Wouldn't they do that as a matter of course? They have Ripple. Jed is available. if they have the tech, do they still need the coin and the existing ledger? I expect banks to always try to screw me. I'm skeptical of banks and their motives of "customer service and consumer protection". WTF do they think they're snowing with that bullish*t?
  5. yerr-nahhh tiff may sound miffed but has probaly forgotten that WietseWind is applying for a banking licence, besides maybe it's WW's fault he didnt get more peanut butter
  6. Question Four (CryptoEri): "๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜Ÿ๐˜™๐˜— ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ-๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ 3 ๐˜บ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต?"

My favorite and I agree Hodor...I mean, Dad. But I think the โ€œtermโ€ is an important aspect for anyone putting money into XRP. It may still be a while yet before weโ€™re in a position for great returns. I think many here were convinced crypto was a get rich quick scheme and thatโ€™s why they bought. And depending on what and when you bought and sold that could be true. Yet I think this still has the potential to create generational wealth but thatโ€™s likely possible only for long-term digital asset investors. Three years from now things will be much clearer but three years in crypto is like 30 years for many. Seems odd to think that three years is in the ballpark for long-term consideration. Always a pleasure @Hodor. Many thanks!
  7. yerr-nah your so fkn wrong! the day b4 yestetday i did some bank tx's "from" and "to" my exchange and "from" and "to" my brother who is with the same bank. "From" the bank stilk takes overnight. Settlements are still pathetically slow. Banks are still fking us hardcase. The world is sick of & angry about banks, xrp will be the standard!
  8. Yesterday
  9. My first sell point is 3.14 cad..because i like ๐Ÿฐ ๐Ÿ˜‚
  10. Ok let me fix this for you.. If you don't have the stomach,guts or fortitude to remain in this market exit and go home. There much better ๐Ÿค”
  11. I think longs are getting restless basis 2018 and things that have come about in the last couple months that are asking for longs to continue to believe innuendos (i.e. Powell saying faster payments system won't likely see 2020, xSpring questions, BTC's rise which seems to be manipulated again which hints at another major crash again, what large scale holders are selling and why, xRapid, SWIFT ever-confusion, the ever consistent not-to-be-named 'XRP' in any major speech, Libra's emergence, de-risking, etc. etc.) Everybody has their limits and money isn't forever. Timing has and will continue to take down a lot of people here. Bets were placed on time, not necessarily XRP. The community didn't set the standard....
  12. I don't think I've ever seen Tiffany criticize ripple.... The tide seems to be turning
  13. I think $2-3 is highly unlikely this year. I could be wrong, but I think an optimistic EOY price is $1. My reasoning is that more money will flow to BTC than in past cycles. So ETH and XRP will not jump as they did previously. It will be a slow rise. 2020 is the year that I believe XRP will reach ATH. And I think it will happen at the end of 2020. That will be a true test for XRP hodlers. Do you sell when it reaches ATH? I am sure many will do exactly that.
  14. Report on proceedings. Pretty negative towards Libra https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jul/17/facebook-libra-cryptocurrency-congress?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  15. Hey, itโ€™s not XRPs fault you were late to the party. The whole market was going down in 2018, , your not alone in this respect. But while others remain undeterred and still believe in what they invested in, others reading fud articles see things in a different perspective, self doubt creeps in and they even start to believe itโ€™s a scam a ponzu scheme Anyone who thinks this is a ponzi and still have money in it must have rocks for brains, โ€œget out now before you lose it allโ€ I would say because thereโ€™s only one way a ponzi ends For me XRP is far from being a ponzi, but thatโ€™s just my opinion
  16. You own xrp, there is majority holder, hence its in your ******* interest to know what they fuckin do with those big bags of money. Its that fuckin basic, its that fuckin basic, If you own gold, and everyone in the fuckin world drops it, sells, YOU WILL FUCKIN CARE ABOUT FUCKIN OTHERS , WHAT THEY DO WITH THEIR FUCKIN ASSETS YOU IGNORANT **** GET IT TO YOUR HEAD. Now if you invested and you dont get that point now, you should just go play minecraft and donate the every fuckin mod ever created cause you dont deserve to hold any fuckin value of any fuckin kind. ****. You just boiled a person alive. Fuckin achievement.
  17. Finally, I'm glad to see this topic being discussed . A few months ago, I pointed out some issues relating to this topic. There are so many things but here's what comes first: Ripple has a problem to attract developers. For that matter, it started the acceleration program but again it fails to attract developers for the xrpl and therefore changed the focus on broader crypto projects. It should convey a large survey to determine the 'why'. Since the beginning Ripple hasn't had any strategy for XRP. It's something but..what Since XRP is not owned by Ripple but rather they act as a steward for safeguarding the value, the question then arises why a single entity should be in control. Could a XRP governance entity fulfill a better role? What is the purpose of the escrow? Ripple has always been saying we are working closely with regulators and yet when the regulators say something, ripple nor XRP are mentioned but you hear about BTC and eth like e.g. the report Brad was bragging about. A whole paragraph was devoted to eth and between brackets 'XRP has some similar features' And so on..
  18. What a load of crock. This tiered old argument again. I did my due diligence regarding XRP and it seamed like the once in a lifetime investment. However I got in late Q1 2018 and have seen no profits and now traders are considering XRP a Ponzi. I might have been swayed by the shining gold, the values and the white paper, but XRP has give zero in return.
  19. Be interesting to see, and very good chance we will float up with the rest of the alts at some point prior to decouple/real utility. If we do rise up to say $2-3 on an general market bubble this year... who would have the balls to sell? Probably not me, be too sh*t scared of missing "the big rise" whilst playing at trader!
  20. Well now I'm confused. I'm excluded from getting my lambo moon gains for saying it might go up. But you, in the same post, also say "XRP may fail". OK.... cool....
