  1. Past hour
  2. Every time someone signs the change.org petition, a message is automatically sent to the 50+ members of Congress that the petition is targeting. Congress has to pass the legislation before it gets to the president, but a White House petition wouldn't hurt either.
  3. I have nothing against you personally. However, if you make blatantly ridiculous statements I'm going to call you out on it. We have enough misinformation and disinformation on here as it is.
  4. Does change.org actually do anything? It seems like petitioning the white house directly https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/ would be more effective. Upon 100,000 signatures within 30 days, the white house must respond within 60 days of the petition. All people who sign an provide their email will get an automatic update once the White House responds.
  5. I’ve never declared any such judgement on anyone here but myself. Inflammatory remarks targeting members of this community are inappropriate and inexcusable. @ADingoAteMyXRP @Paradox
  6. ........let me guess you think XRP and ripple are the same thing too. you guys are ******* stupid
  7. Actually at current rate ... approximately 15 years. 2.5 years for 51% distribution.. Assuming distribution rate is constant.. if it increases, it will be shorter. If it decreases, it will take longer.
  8. With this speed it'll probably take another 15-20 years to do that though, I know some people here are 'long term' investors, but I doubt even they can wait more than a decade.
  9. Nope. I agree. the more sold, the faster to deplete escrow and give demand a chance to increase price...
  10. Can’t believe you as an actual adult, just ended your comment with haha.
  11. You must be either a masochist or hate money
  12. https://todaysgazette.com/xrp-price-prediction-what-the-golden-cross-means-sell-or-hodl/
  13. yes it does - new exchanges need to set up their liquidity. The money is needed by Ripple to fund development of their marketplace that the new exchanges will serve - it is the perfect solution
  14. the irony ......umm you aren't even asking the correct questions. I had a question and I made a thread for it. You wanted to debate me on something that isn't even related to this thread. So make of that what you will I guess haha.
  15. You sound very frustrated for no obvious reason. Adoption is happening as we speak. Take some days off without a screen.
  16. Does the market really need more xrp at this point? Why not leave institutions to buy in open market and sell their xrp later on?
  17. When did i say i sold everything? I just think it is funny we keep finding excuses for lack of adoption
  18. I've spent six months trying to value XRP using fundamental analysis by way of any and every resource I can find. I have made posts on this forum trying to discuss that subject and got zero responses. I believe I've read most everything there is on the subject except for a couple of recent grad school papers I couldn't easily lay my hands on. My conclusion, we're in uncharted waters. XRP is great tech. Understood. The Ripple use case is great. The idea that maybe many other payment and settlement situations can be handled by XRP is very sound. But currencies don't generate revenue. They appreciate or decline in value based on the willingness of someone to hold them preferentially over some competitor....dollars, BTC, gold. There are several obvious challenges in addition to that big one. Pre-mined coins come with a set total supply. XRP has a big one. How do non-XRP experts look at that? Here's the kneejerk response....compare it to BTC. Or try to compare it to stocks. Stupid, I know, but with no good yardstick, you use what you got. Because people with a finance education don't begin to appreciate the problem set with BTC or understand why it was necessary to pre-mine coins. All they see is supply, and they come from a background in stocks, where huge supply is considered a big negative. And then you have Ripple, which is where most of the good news comes from on XRP......great company, but XRP is a currency, not stock in a company. Ripple is set to generate plenty of revenue, I'm sure. But Ripple is not XRP, and the two are only tangentially connected. These factors combine to produce.....uncertainty. For XRP price to appreciate, there needs to be a perception that large institutions like the banks themselves or big investors want to own it. And, as far as I can see, those entities NEED to find a way to value XRP that helps them decide how much to buy and what they're willing to pay. That's why Black Rock scooped up Robbie Mitchnick. Important players are very eager to develop the tools for this....but it's a brand new area in finance.
  19. I thought you sold everything? Why would you care about what excuses may or may not be given?
  20. hmm so now that you are wrong you are going to simply try to deflect the issue? GG man
  21. @MegaNerd is right though. I'm not capable of doing a technical trading analysis on cryptos. When I say 'it doesn't make fundamental sense to me' I'm talking about the long term use case. I understand Ripple's business plan, so I understand why XRP would be used or have demand. I don't understand the business case for BTC, but I do recognize it has attracted demand for its product, I just don't know why. I literally meant that I don't understand BTC at its base level, hence my use of the term 'fundamental'.
  22. yuk, you really are dirtying your own reputation with that diatribe! Do you have evidence of Ripple employees driving lambos? What is the point of a well funded organisation going to the public for funds? What is greedy about selling 2 -3 % of your assets pa to build the foundations of your company's future?
  23. Today
  24. So they should just give away the XRP to distribute it? Charging money for it ensures that it goes to the institutions which can make the most use of it. Giving it away to Joe Blow so it can sit idle on his Coinbase account doesn't further the ecosystem.
  25. It fills me with confidence that Ripple are already funded to carry on developing the XRP tech and ecosystem for another decade. They do not need to worry about money, that means they can just keep their heads down and plough their way through the walls of resistance in the banking industry which are huge, and fund other companies to put their heads down and push ahead with developing new ideas for XRP usage. It is fantastic that they have the money to put behind behind XRPL Labs , Kava, Forte and Bolt Labs. If anything I am disappointed that Ripple did not sell more XRP in Q1. I want to see them break new sales records every month, that would be a real bullish signal for me..
