    FXChoice adding XRP

    https://en.myfxchoice.com/fx-choice-news/ripple-now-available/ This is not an exchange, this is a forex trader that also does CFDs and precious metals. Adding a crypto token is quite something.

    Foundations of Success

    XRP's value is driven by its utility. The UK Parliament recently released their findings about crypto via a subcommittee document; I break down their conclusions and share what I think this means for crypto and for XRP. PNC Bank - one of the largest US Banks - joins RippleNet. SAP creates a POC mobile app that handles real-time Canada-to-Germany payments. Sagar Sarbhai reveals that Ripple piloted XRP with banks *years* ago And in Coil news, the company reveals that it is Coil-enabling some high-profile sites right away, and WietseWind provides the first centralized listing of businesses that are Coil-enabled. WietseWind also published a new blog of his own on how to ILP-enable the IOT (Internet of Things), merging the IOT with the IOV! Is he the first to do this in the history of the world? *Perhaps*. All this and more is covered in today's blog. Hope you enjoy the read & please leave any feedback below. Feel free to share my blog with a friend - or on any other platform or social media - and thank you for helping spread the word!

    The Only Limit Is Our Imagination

    The Internet of Value now has the tools, solutions, and the people to transform the world; the only limit is our collective imagination! In this latest blog, I talk about how progress is accelerating for the companies that use XRP & its associated micropayments capabilities, as well as ILP and Codius. Ripple just signed NCB & I provide my take on why they chose to publicly announce this new customer addition to RippleNet. Cory Johnson is interviewed at the Milken Institute Asia Summit, and CNBC quotes Sagar Sarbhai from Ripple on xRapid's production rollout. A new WordPress plugin for Coil has now been created. To top off the last few days, a new version of XRP was just released, and it includes an exciting new amendment. Hope you enjoy the read & please leave any feedback below.

    What to expect from SWELL?

    I'm not expecting much but few "Key" goals will be achieved- * xRapid goes live * Ripple is partnered with Amazon, Apple, Uber and they all will use Xrp for all their payments flows * IMF, BIS, UN, WB, FED, CB all have purchased keys to escrowed xrp * xrp is included in the SDR * Ripple has partnered with swift(after years of lobbying and requests by CB's) and all cross border payments will be via xrp only * xrp will be used as a bridge currency in derivatives and forex markets * United Nations flag and symbol will be a hooked X with drops in the background * Vitalik Buterrin has been given an intern position on project CODIUS * xrp will be the base currency on all exchanges and there won't be any other markets except xrp * Jed's stash has been seized after finding him guilty for mtgox scandal and others, the stash has been awarded to David, the rightful owner but being as nice as he is, he has donated it to charity * xrp has been announced as the world currency * Brad will be running(winning) for president next election *Bearableguy123 is real, president Trump has confirmed and invited him to the White House and is being considered for Noble prize Also Coinbase has been bought by Ripple and shutdown for good. P.S. XRP is now a stable coin at the fixed value of $589.01(.01c is to show the respect to BG123's "+")

    https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/09/17/ripple-hints-cryptocurrency-product-xrapid-will-go-live-soon.html?__twitter_impression=true Sagar Sarbhai, head of regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East at Ripple, said Monday that the firm was making significant headway with its xRapid product, which is aimed at helping banks speed up transactions by using the cryptocurrency XRP. "I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production," Sarbhai said of xRapid in an interview with CNBC's Arjun Kharpal.

    Coinbase are such clowns

    XRP is now #2 gunning for the top and they don't even have it listed. At least they have ETHEREUM CLASSIC 😆

    Move over CB. NASDAQ is coming through! "A conversation with a Ripple executive confirmed their Nasdaq discussions: “Yes, we’ve been in discussions with Nasdaq around their exchange initiative and have been willing to answer any and all due diligence questions. We believe in what we are doing here, our products and services, and $XRP as well. Nasdaq will ultimately be the final arbiter of who gets listed next year, but we believe we will be firmly in that group. Without giving too much away, the excitement around here for where this is headed is pretty fun to watch. The Nasdaq exchange and custody product is going to be something special.” You can imagine that a development such as this would set aside any and all concern regarding Ripple’s ongoing frustration with Coinbase. Being listed on a forthcoming global exchange and brand such as Nasdaq would remove any need to be placed into a more closed ecosystem such as Coinbase. And that particular line of thinking was verbalized by another Ripple executive yesterday: “This inclusion justified I might add, gives us less interest in taking whatever unnecessary steps Coinbase would have us take to meet any listing standards they deem relevant. So while it would be welcome to finalize a $XRP listing on Coinbase we simply aren’t interested in moving heaven and earth to do so." Thanks to @Sio2yH2O for pointing out this quote of the article.

    Ever want to send a link to a friend that explains the basics of XRP compared to Bitcoin? In today's blog, I go over all the basics of XRP, including its features, capabilities, and include some of the major differences between it and other networks. While it's not an in-depth treatment of 'all-things XRP,' it serves as a convenient reference document if you're looking for a short explanation to share with somebody new. I hope you enjoy the read; leave any feedback below. Feel free to share my blog with a friend - or on any other platform - and thank you for doing so!

    I tried to post this on /r/Ripple but they don't want to approve it for some reason. This is not FOMO hype or FUD. Just real facts and articles that I think are worth looking into. Yesterday morning I got caught up in the UK parliament website (I live in the US). I found a document that was just published yesterday. https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmselect/cmtreasy/910/910.pdf The document from the House of Commons Treasury Committee is about Crypto-assets. If you search "Ripple" You will see that out man Ryan Zagone presented on blockchain applications. This article leads to the full transcript of Ryan Zagone's accounts on the topic, here: http://data.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/committeeevidence.svc/evidencedocument/treasury-committee/digital-currencies/oral/82323.html At the bottom there are different follow-up documents in which Ripple submitted some written evidence http://data.parliament.uk/WrittenEvidence/CommitteeEvidence.svc/EvidenceDocument/Treasury/Digital%20currencies/written/86077.html Here is where things get really interesting... The main publication also has a link to https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/treasury-committee/inquiries1/parliament-2017/digital-currencies-17-19/publications/ On this page there is a link to Bank of England Written Evidence: https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/treasury/Written_Evidence/govenor-boe-digital-currencies-160718.pdf This letter talks about how they have piloted many different blockchain products, including, Ripple products. This letter references Bank of Canada (https://dailyhodl.com/2018/09/10/royal-bank-of-canada-says-ripple-and-xrp-can-save-financial-institutions-46-per-payment/) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore which there has been news. A notable quote would be: "Are working currently with the Bank of Canada and Monetary Authority of Singapore, and a number of private sector firms, to explore ways to facilitate cross-border payments, including via systems using DLT. " The letter continues to talk about the "Crypto-asset Taskforce" and how they are going to report on their findings September 2018. This lead me to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/cryptoassets-taskforce which states "The Taskforce will publish a report in Q3 2018."

    To summarise the general points so far -( Part 1 as they are now in break before Part2) • The rest of the world are already far ahead of US regulators. Consequently the US needs to move fast with clear and light regulations otherwise the US may lose its lead in the global financial marketplace. This point was repeated by many different people. The example of how excellent US regs in 90s enabled the dot.com boom and US economic global dominance thereafter. • Taxonomy, mentioned by many including Zagone. US regulators need to agree on terminonlogy so all discussions are about same thing. Zagone said how US competitors have one framework covering the whole asset class and US needs to follow this example. In fact it was US that invented this type of regulation in 90s dot.com boom • Nasdaq representative talked about about we need to accept that no asset will be fully decentralised at first and so must nt be deemed a security so soon.

    Ripple has removed mention of xCurrent, xRapid and xVia from its website and it has been replaced with one product: Ripplenet! And here is the big statement from ripple.com: So people, all the 200+ banks on xCurrent (ripplenet) will use xrp! https://ripple.com/ripplenet/on-demand-liquidity/

    For those who are interested, Jed sells his xrp (the daily amount that he is allotted per the agreement he entered into with Ripple) on Bitstamp for USD, and he does it everyday at 4:00 pm EST. You can see it here. I don't follow the daily sells, but if you go to the link below you can see it. He has been doing this virtually everyday since the agreement was entered into a few years ago. I think he does a market sell order, and people know he is selling there, and so they are there to pick up the xrp, and sometimes at a discount (the discount was pretty big for a while, and I thought of putting in some below market bids on Bitstamp but eventually other people saw the discount and now it no longer exists). Generally, the amount he is allotted changes each week (per the agreement) based on the volume on the xrp ledger from the week before. His daily sell amount is higher than it was the last time I checked (it's around 600k per day, and last time I checked, around 6 months ago, it was around 100-200k). https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/markets/XRP/USD:rvYAfWj5gh67oV6fW32ZzP3Aw4Eubs59B?interval=30m&range=1d&type=line

    Surely they will announce Cobalt as being live at SWELL? If not, why would they say 50,000 TPS on their website? 50K TPS requires Cobalt....it must be ready. So...it looks like we will have both Cobalt and xRapid live in 2018.

    https://www.coindesk.com/us-banking-giant-pnc-becomes-latest-to-adopt-ripples-xcurrent/ " The bank's Treasury Management division will begin accepting cross-border transactions using the firm's xCurrent product, Ripple's senior vice president, Asheesh Birla, told CoinDesk Wednesday " " One of the top-10 largest banks by assets held in the U.S., PNC has already successfully concluded a pilot phase and proof-of-concept for the payment rail, and will immediately begin using xCurrent in a production environment " " More broadly, Ripple announced Wednesday that it has clients in 40 countries across six different continents now " "While the bank will start by using xCurrent, Birla hopes to ultimately help them begin working with Ripple's xRapid "
