  2. Since @JaiChai's no longer around (*cry*), I'm going to try to fill that empty void with some beer recommendations. Just 'cos. This month I have been especially impressed with an English – specifically Yorkshire – ale. So we're kicking off with one of the best commercial beers I've ever had. It's a brain blasting 8-9% but drinks like nectar of the gods. It's dark and delicious, perfect for a cold winter night in. I like my thick rich stouts, and this is almost a stout in texture, but sweeter (not sickly!) and thankfully missing that sour tang some stouts exhibit. I found cool room te

  4. It's nice that people understand, that XRP should be worth much more. But how to do it? May be we should do something? Prayers? Agitation of other people? Magic?

  5. After having read @mDuo13 's post I adjusted my program to produce a list as follows: Get all accounts that have 'non-default' flags set - such as 'requireAuthorization'. This takes a long time (+/- 1 day), so once I have this list I re-use it and only add new accounts. It is possible that accounts have been adjusted meanwhile. (in total currently 2252 acounts in this list) From this list select the accounts that have 'requireAuthorization' set. (434 accounts) Determine which 'peer'-accounts are authorized by these accounts. (417 accounts) Order by lastTx The result

  6. Activated by XRP-business, no recent txs. Maybe our theory that XRP-business activated live accounts only is wrong. Activated by ~dave-cohen-fund. Geography of his IOUs seems to be all-encompassing. One of the few wallets dealing in AED. Perhaps this is a touch point of his fund and NBAD? Above wallets are activated by XRP-g. Testing? Activated by XRP-g, has Memos identical to wallets activated by ~dave-cohen. Activated by ~dave-cohen. Activated by~ryantest, has recent txs (last ~17 hours ago), has no orderbook

    Ripple is hiring

    24 open positions. Good to see they're still on the throttle (as we would expect). All available positions:https://ripple.com/company/careers/all-jobs/ Will be interesting to see who they hire for this position:https://ripple.com/company/careers/all-jobs/#head-of-strategic-partnerships

  8. OK this post is a bit wild, take a HUGE pinch of salt first... I wonder if this is David Cohen of Techstars? Long shot I know but... staying with the highly speculative dot-connecting for now (which will probably turn out total bunk), to give you an idea of the kind of startups Techstars encourage: http://www.techstars.com/companies/ Some of those are in fintech. However, they've been working with Barclays lately doing accelerator programs in London and globally.

    M-Pesa competitor network

    http://www.paymentscardsandmobile.com/m-pesa-competitor-network/ Could be that this will touch Ripple at some point, is my guess. "Standard Chartered, Commercial Bank of Africa, Barclays Bank, Equity Bank are among the lenders that have received CBK authorisation to pilot the product."

  13. Interestingly, the PBOC effect lasted for only a few days in January and only hours now. I think they will get nervous and will step up their effort in order to stop Bitcoin. Basically I am pretty sure they will shut down 1-2 exchanges within the next 2 weeks, unless Bitcoin corrects. And they can also use a variety of "technical" kinds of weapons inside of the walls of China. Short Bitcoin (yet I still love it).

  14. I can't promise that NBAD's accounts are set up this way (I honestly don't know for sure), but Ripple's recommendation for RCL setups as described in the Gateway Guide, does not include any "mutual trust" relationships. The issuing address (aka cold wallet) trusts no one; the operational addresses (aka hot wallets), and standby addresses (warm wallets) all trust the issuing address. For cross-currency situations, the authorized liquidity provider accounts trust one issuing address for each currency.

  17. If I remember correctly, Fidor silently discontinued using RCL and then Snapswap followed. Snapswap was the gateway Fidor used for US settlement. This account is interesting because it actively transacts with known gateways and a wallet ~tworiversfx. There's a bank named Two Rivers. However, there's also a company: Oh dear. I review all the wallets manually, it might take a week or two to go through all of them. I will keep trying, though. Thank you for compiling it. This feels like the biggest work to validate the use of RCL. I am inclined to think so too

  20. Both are funded by ~david-cohen-fund. Probably testing wallets. I could not find any relation between any David Cohens found in VC/Finance and NBAD. All of the wallets above were activated by ~dave-cohen-fund. Most of the wallets have trust relationships with each other. Many have transactions where a wallet pays with self-issued IOU and the receiving wallet receives their own IOUs. I.e. Wallet1: USD.wallet1 -> USD.Wallet2:Wallet2. Some wallets have OfferCreate/Cancel txs, which is different from NBAD suspected wallets. Now the most curious detail abo

  21. Oh no, no, no. It started not from the "price". It started from nothing, so it definitely won't be an example. It was a unique case and it's still a unique case. Other coins follows the laws of the "normal market" (more or less).

    Easy Win for Ripple?

    I don't understand why the payment network should also host the programmable logic. This idea is at the heart of Ethereum, and I think that is wrong. Internet things will have a Linux system on board, and can be programmed with any programming language, including C#. I see no reason at all, other than making coin X owners rich, to write your application in some very limited and expensive coin X programming platform with a builtin coin X payment network vendor lock-in.

  29. 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

  30. This is the most interesting wallet, last tx ~6x days ago and there's a bunch of low value payments. Surprisingly, there's a walled cluster of 4 wallets: r4jHp2WXDQAfdMy3vrBtZVn3yZbZPFmV86 → rUu8kxiPabqqPAg33KTtoELgCUa9ho9SRU → rQGDpbUiMxYqpDezna85Xr71FhfVzWuyvY Now, here's a payment details from the latest tx from RippleCharts: From my limited understanding, the tx above is the closest to 'bi-directional trust-line with no order book' transaction. The payment, however, was mediated (whatever that means, a word for "rippled"?) via rUu8kxiPabqqPAg33KTtoELgCUa9ho9SRU. This

  32. I think the decentralization of RCL validation network by the addition of highly reliable FIs is very important for XRP, specially if the validators are publicly identified, or at least open to another FIs. @tulo, today we trust Ripple's validators but this is a risk, everybody chooses this path because there is a bigger risk if you don't. So, when I see a non-ripple validator that is trustworthy, it means less risk when following the ledgers and more strength to XRP as a decentralized crypto. It also hints me that XRP is making its way among FIs - they would not announce they run a

  33. @tulo Why is it useless to decentralize the RCL..? I might be overlooking something, but getting traction on the validator front is a very big positive for me!? It 'validates' my belief, that other big players (SECOM has a >15bn USD market cap) put time and effort into RCL...

  34. Several years ago... but you only just started this account in Dec 2016 (a month ago), which coincides with the influx of FUD in the forum. There has been much FUD introduced lately, and many from new account like yours. I can understand the negativity coming from familiar old names, and from those, their concerns are backed up and rational. Yours is purely ungrounded FUD. From my perspective, the influx is purely from short-term (short sighted) specs, or from polo fear mongers (or "bitcoiners") trying to suppress the positive development at Ripple. These people use price as their basis, no

  36. Thanks for the replies everyone, My thoughts on an emp or smart/small nuke explosion brought about my thoughts regarding radiowave damage. Now... I was reading a comment by Professor Hantzen and stocking on paper money but I think I will stick to coins, the gold and silver kind and hope that XRP and this wonderful idea (Ripple Network) do well globally and stay online cos I feel that Swift have been made an offer they can't refuse for long. So gold and silver are my bets and XRP..... Does anyone know if Bitcoin will crash?....You know the saying what goes up must come down. Again guys, t
