  1. Past hour
  2. D Don't worry, XRP was designed to be $10,000. Once it reaches $589 first. lol
  3. Looks like the "stable" coin isn't stable now.
  4. Sometimes wonder why I put myself through this....
  5. You connect via HTTPS/WSS there, so you get the normal TLS security properties. That should protect the connection itself, in case you trust the servers. If you don't trust the servers, you need data from a trustworthy server to compare or verify against.
  6. Send me 1,000 XRP and I'll return 100,000 CartoonCoin
  7. Going to Disney land and paying with crypto would be cool 😎
  8. Today
  9. I've been wondering since the fork which one SBI would settle on. I had always suspected BSV due to the relationship with nChain but there hadn't been much concrete evidence for one or the other. I guess this leaves me wondering, BSV or neither?
  10. Where are we actually going to share information? I'm actually struggling to navigate this chat and group? It's all over the place lol Will we be koving to another platform where it's easier to have chats on certain subjects and video calls/meetings? Like Zoom, Wired or a similar app.
  11. https://bitcoinist.com/disney-stake-bitstamp-korbit-bitcoin-exchanges/ This could be big news. Don't forget Bitstamp is an xRapid exchange. I copy & pasted the article below: An equity battle involving a South Korean gaming giant could end up with Walt Disney Co. owning two major cryptocurrency exchanges. Happy Ending For Disney And Crypto? As local news outlet JoongAng Ilbo reported quoted by Korea Herald April 17, Disney is currently one of the major bidders for a 98.6 percent stake in Nexon, South Korea’s largest game developer and the second-largest online games publisher in the world. Nexon is 47 percent owned by NXC, the chairman of which, Jung-ju Kim, is behind the shares sale. According to JoongAng Ilbo, various major entities had taken an interest in the stake. These include Tencent and Kakao, both of which are currently pursuing cryptocurrency-related projects of their own. Disney, however, is allegedly first in line, with Kim personally reaching out to the US corporation. Should the $13.2 billion deal go ahead, however, Disney will have access to European exchange Bitstamp via NXC’s investment structure NXMH, which purchased it for around $400 million in late 2018. Also under control would be South Korean mainstream platform Korbit, in which Nexon has a 65 percent stake. Rumors Of A Done Deal According to the Herald, the NXC mogul had held a soft spot for Disney for some time, spurring the belief that the deal would likely have a specific outcome. “What I envy the most about Disney is that they do not force money out of kids… (consumers) gladly pay Disney. Nexon has a long way to go. Some people hate Nexon to death,” it quotes him as saying in 2015. Disney itself has hardly any experience in the cryptocurrency industry, with the exception of a lackluster ICO project dubbed ‘DragonChain’ in 2017. While the new owner could thus jettison its newly-acquired crypto portfolio, the track record of both platforms could yet prove appealing as the cryptocurrency market undergoes its latest renaissance. Last week, Bitstamp became one of the few businesses to complete the process of gaining a BitLicense certification to serve users in New York. “We look forward to carrying the lessons we’ve learned in Europe over the ocean and helping to develop a better environment for all crypto businesses, both in the US and worldwide,” the company wrote in an accompanying blog post. Korbit also continues to press on despite the 2018 bear market proving tough on its financial health. This month, figures showed net annual losses for the previous twelve months totalled around 45 billion won ($40 million), still less than market heavyweight Bithumb, which shed closer to $180 million.
  12. Also, plaintiff (if you are reading this and not yet a chat member) please register with user name XRPlaintiff and open a subject with title "SEC? yeah you know me!" I will be looking forward to chatting with you. Sincerely, I. M. Nuts
  13. I keep seeing this topic on the main page and really want to comment in here but I do not know what to say and am afraid of incriminating myself.
  14. Such a good point! Ironically, it might be popular belief that I am quick to the trigger to call out "fud" when I see an exhausted headline and a brand new member posting.... I am going to turn a new leaf... and even if this plaintiff joins XRPchat and opens a topic about the SEC or the Escrow, or the amount of coins....... I am going to look at it objectively and hear what he has to say.... thank you everybody for helping me see that I might just be uptight and nervous about my investment. From here on out, a new me will be present.... You guys are the best!
  15. Thanks for your intellectual and well thought-out input. Can you tell us more?
  16. I have a cactus named Ripple. I decided to go with a plant that is much easier to maintain. Like XRP, give it a little attention every few weeks, and check back every so often.
  17. We will see. BTC needs to convincingly breach above 6k, otherwise we don’t have a downtrend reversal. I have been assessing my own hold of XRP and fortunately moved out some of my hold into ADA in Jan. Now I can buy back more XRP which is great (same idea). But keep in mind BTC is facing a large wall of resistance in the short term.....at least on the BTC/USD comparative. On BTC/XRP you are selling XRP which may be a good call since the XRP/BTC ratio is dropping like a rock but that comparative could rebound quickly to the upside and your XRP would buy more BTC in the future.
  18. Even these giant partner with ripple, they will use xCurrent not XRP……
  19. I know it may seem like a long time to you and me, but the speed this process is moving at is fairly typical of the US court system. In terms of this speed being beneficial, it is hard to say. On one hand, the longer the case takes, the more time the general public (and any presiding judges) has to become aware and learn about this technology and its uses outside of the Silk Road-esque use cases that have been typically associated with Crypto, which IMO is a net positive. On the other hand, I’m sure Ripple would like to resolve this case quickly so that the company can have one less thing to worry about/explain. An additional factor that I think gets overlooked are the optics of the case (I know some people may argue optics shouldn’t matter in court but I live in the real world). One of the main plaintiffs is spending tens of thousands of dollars chasing a ~$500 loss on XRP by suing numerous respected individuals from both the business world and academia (including Susan Athey, who is a John Bates Clark medal recipient). Time will tell what the outcome will be, but I will tell you this - I don’t lose one wink of sleep over this lawsuit.
  20. Do you know if the extended amount of time the lawyers are taking is seen as a benefit in some way? With my non legal background it it would seem to open the door to spurious charges being filed to deliberately affect the market.
