    Leaderboard incorrect?

    Since the leaderboard was added, I noticed I'm only 14th on the list! This will just not do. I'd like to point out that people seem to like me because I am polite and rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks. For every like this post gets, I will pet my dog and tell him he is a good boy. p.s Like this post.

    An international team of scientists have developed a blueprint for a working, scalable quantum computer, that they estimate could be fast enough - depending on optimisations - to factor a 1024-bit number in 14 days at the low end, or a 2048-bit number in 10 days at the high end. I think that breaks currently common RSA implementations at least? A working prototype would cost up to ~USD$125 million with a build time of 2 years. Here is a summary by The Independent. You can read the full article here.

    I think that if that is true, RCL won't be the most important problem in security It would screw the whole world. I'd like too see that actually It's time to buy solar panels, a crossbow, and filters for water.

    Security of RCL relies on the Discrete Logarithm Problem (in some very special groups) and not on factoring integers. Discrete logarithm problem is not mentioned in this paper, so I guess it doesn't directly apply to RCL. Practical (in any sense) quantum computers are probably very far from the actual implementation...

    List of possible NBAD Ripple accounts

    looking at the OMR accounts from my first (large) list, they seem to incept at timely intervals. Presuming they first started in the dev and test env, this account might be a test or dev account (activated by rLkFVnyuWeaSmSmefU79C6RSr6XJKdeXmd which was activated by ~dave-cohen-fund). If you check the OMR accounts from 2016/12/02 like rEJuw49V1a5jXpEMLqnmF5PcdFmuVV7sF3 (which might be prod?), the accounts have been activated by rsojfZfBY2j3GJtZxUVH7Wut1Uj9n6Fncd, which in his turn has been activated by the account ~xrpbusiness (rUTwEtrKy4uygfVGou9XYR6dJspnUHjsYQ) if you check the OMR accounts from 2016/09/15 like rLTZ84KMv4QHp2Ekt79VyK9NAgsbXXDDkg (which might be acpt?), the accounts have been activated directly by ~XRP-g (rBXp6Mz91KhKpLiVgB5rruQAzTCEyR3vT6) The fact that account rsojfZfBY2j3GJtZxUVH7Wut1Uj9n6Fncd has been activated by ~xrpbusiness seems encouraging. Furthermore if you check what other accounts have been activated by rsojfZ.. then also the EGP and JOD accounts have been activated by this same account.

    5 billion XRP has just been moved

    I don't envy the guy that actually presses "send" on a transaction for 5 billion. How many times do you think he/she checks the destination address?

    I found on github a discussion with @tulo and donch that was pretty interesting https://github.com/ripple/rippled/issues/1257 Can someone show us an example of code (with ripple-lib for example) to make a pseudo circular payment with the path split? I'm curious to know how to use the pathfinding and it's a fun example on how you can trick the system.

    What's all this grovelling for likes? I thought this was a community for intelligent people, not a facebook fansite competition. (Like this post, every like == 1 BTC)

    List of possible NBAD Ripple accounts

    You would want a query like "https://data.ripple.com/v2/payments/OMR+rUu8kxiPabqqPAg33KTtoELgCUa9ho9SRU?limit=2", which is available and works for e.g. BTC from Bitstamp, but it seems that only well-known currencies/gateways are available in the database. Then a possibillity is to iterate over each ledger like "https://data.ripple.com/v2/ledgers?expand=true&ledger_index=27468992", but that will take a considerable amount of time. I don't work much directly against a rippled directly but I imagine there must be faster ways to scroll through the available data over there..

    5 billion XRP has just been moved

    Someone should try to do some math on those figures. Do we know what is the estimated size of transfers between the Japan banks involved in this? We could figure out how Ripple, SBI and Japanese bankers see how many XRPs is really needed and then we can make better educated guess on future XRP price.

    XRP DISTRIBUTION UPDATE

    I'm pretty sure the next update will be ~185mm, and not 5bn

    Team, In my opinion, Banks are fully aware of public ledger as being just that. Also it is no secret that all banks at minimum will maintain a private AND public positions. Yes banks need privacy, but not for everything. General liquidity transactions can be very transparent and If i was a bank I would want my private ledger and various accounts , with this private ledger being part of and trusted association with other similar institutions of same clearance/approvals AND I would most certainly also want a open public position on public ledger, where i can easily fix all unexpected liquidity needs either by maintaining a small liquid reserve and/or also by being able to use various 'public source' for unexpected daily variances. "Unexpected daily variances" :- that's the pain thing... thing that troubles banks in their remittance operations. We have a general idea of remittance traffic daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal basis. You will also have basic idea of how much load would be on you for incoming ( from various regular sources ). But while these averages give general valuation only - this never works so smoothly and always more often then not, additional unexpected needs show up (in either direction). Geo events, Change in tax rules, some country went nuts, some new sanctions, some political ban, Political events ... you name it... before you know we are crying for liquidity. So, believe me you, banks can miss on an ongoing earthquake with their floors shaking, but they will never miss a single stance- when it comes to the specifics of their money,transactions and its visibility. So I confidently say feel free to 'scrutinize' any 'public records', group them, play the investigative journalists with all the legally open data including 'connecting the dots' based on news etc like this thread... if anything, worst case banks will get to see something that they might have missed. which is "earlier the better" kinda thingy ! cheers, R8102V1D2D

    I just don't think the banks will appreciate having the general public potentially scrutinise their clients' finances. I think the main/only use case for RCL is indeed precisely for transparency. For example, letting people track their remittances in real-time like a FedEx parcel delivery. We have a public good called "the internet" yes, but we still use private channels on it. Let them establish these connections first, test the technology out for a while and establish a quiet value web. Then maybe we'll see a few brave souls use public rails on top.

    I don't understand you guys who are expressing your disappointment on this fantastic news... It's the first bank that is using RCL directly. Just the last week we could be only dreaming about this kind of news! Of course they are probably sending IOUs back and forth, because doing anything else right now would be useless and an overkill. They don't need anything else right now, just some kind of vehicle that makes their accounting on both sides easier. Because these UAE guys are smart enough, they have chosen RCL and as a nice extra they have got a technology with fantastic features and now they can use it, experiment on it and explore all the possibilities that they've got. Have you really expected they will pour some $50M into XRP, build their own liquidity pool and would simulate for themselves a liquidity provider? Common! In the next few weeks/months there will be more banks connected to RCL, probably the same way. We know about SBI's large project in Japan, we know about SEB, there is the Axis bank in India, probably more banks in Asia are almost ready to go live with something similar. And again, most probably they will star with trust lines set up just between their own branches for simple IOU handling. Disappointed again? But after a few more months all these guys will be ready to extend their trust lines between each other and finally build a fully functional RCL network with pools of XRP liquidity, which would finally makes sense. And imagine that fireworks! Rome was not built in a day. Even God himself needed 6 full days to create this theater. Let's not be ungrateful, please... Everything is going pretty well. Ripple - good job! Keep going please.

    @tulo: I'll poke around and see if I can figure it out or find someone who can.
