    stellar and ripple

    Why would you put your money in a project run by a man who started a better version of that same project and then has spent the last 3 years doing everything he could to wreck it? He told everyone he would sell all his XRP, causing everyone who relied on his statements to lose their money and then only sold enough to keep the price low as long as possible. He literally did the most unethical thing in his power. He then continued to do similar things going forward. The list of bad action by Jed is too long for one post. So, I would keep my distance from Stellar.

    No he cannot! Jed's holdings are locked up into an agreement under control by Ripple that let him sell no more than 1,5% of total RCL trading volume. Indeed he's untrustworthy as he once tried to screw Ripple and the mutual agreement by way of a 1M USD selling under the names of a cousin and an aunt. But Ripple was smarter and faster than Jed so they could lock up the trade on the exchange (with the help of Bitstamp). This way he screwed not only himself, but also his family as their stealth action brought the whole band in court, resulting into a ruling by the judge that Jed has to give the full control of his holdings in the hands of Ripple so that they can sell per agreement on his behalf - a bit like parents have to do with the funds of their children when they are not yet aged enough to control them.

    Ripple, India and Transaction by May

    I beg to differ about it. I am Indian, currently living in Australia. If you do the research you will find out how people there adapt to new technology much quicker than any other part of the world. Reasons are, over 50% of population is of youths, about 200 Million people in middle class and expected to grow to 400 million people soon ( and most of them being tech efficient due to being educated ) Growth rate and lately Governments will to reduce cash transactions. Everything is pushing people towards digital payments. And yes Xrp may take some months may be couple of years to pickup speed but once people get the taste of quick transfers, people will love it. Example of that is "Unocoin" which is one of the few bitcoin start up ( and where Xrp is rumoured to be launched ) alone has 150,000 bitcoin customers. India has much more mobile wallet users than most countries in the world. So I guess we can expect good things in next few months.

    XRP meme competition?

    (sorry for profanity)
  7. 4 points
    very introspective .. lots of great points to contemplate upon... many of them true. ... I am just choosing those where i think a different 'outcome' is 'possible'. >>This is a religious struggle. It is a religious ( more philosophical - but i get it) struggle yes. But thanks to bitcoin, people have come to see what a completely decentralized and unregulated space can do. many have got hurt, many have got rich, rampant speculation and from miner mafia to developers core - all sorts of market cornering is up for display :-) the point i am making _ if "this" is the unregulated space that is prime, - It can be guaranteed - the mainstream regulated space is not going to "collaborate" with this unregulated space. So what would the "unregulated" space look like - which mainstream "regulated space" would be "ok" to open up to ? this is the true billion dollar question right here... As I see, factually, RCL has the highest chances to be this public space, which private banking & regulated market can "recognize" and "serve" its services. In other words will be "OK" to have a route inward and outward ! Especially Outward. And .... with that condition set... I do believe ecosystem will follow, and efforts of building this community will come center stage. We have to understand not everyone is fighting a large philosophical fight. Most of them are looking for opportunities that cuts a slack in life and helps them live rich + happy. and i can tell you from experience, if RCL has essential services, liquidity and most importantly "connectivity" to Traditional regulated space .... we will see a whole mushroom colony like developers doing their own thing ( website pos for people with online shop - where others buy with "there and then" settlements ) , loan operators, micro lending applications, you name it... >>I remain optimistic that Ripple will develop a product, but it will not be widely adopted as Ripple does not have the ability to attract talent. This is the second point I feel differently ... too much talent out there, developers who can digest the entire api in 2 days... no lack... I agree on the bad job ( or purposefully ) that ripple did not "groom" this talent.. but this is where Lucky makes a good point that they know the value of actually establishing rails and connectivity (& confidence) with existing financial world ... because that's the difficult part ... creating a fan following is "relatively" easy ... If they "laser focus" on the difficult problem and achieve it before everyone else, and then second easier challenge can be taken with 'leaders advantage"... But if this is ripple's approach, i do believe they cannot slack all the way till the end... they have to kick start come sort of community building in parallel - at least as the first challenge is taking roots .. Hence, I agree they should try to maintain a healthy supporter/community group even while working on the first part ( banks and FI's and traditional finances ) between I really don't understand why we are taking sides on brain storming sessions like this and making it a fight, sessions like this are very valuable... we should be unbiased, neutral and consider all positions ... then to find the best opportunities.. at least this is what life has thought me.. As for me, I like to calculate these things, and i feel Ripple is primed for very good success. I have calculated approximate times for go live and traditional connectivity to be 2018 - Q1/Q2 - and I cannot say same about any other platform even if i wanted to :-) ... no where near ... once xrp is listed in japan and starts a basic use case with rc-cloud base solution, slowly individuals will start showing up wanting to run smaller services - like website POS , or real POS etc ... then people like gatehub who are adding usd ( aud ? ) or something else .. i forget ..the point is, it just need not be trading, people can use gatehub accounts to disbursement globally ... perhaps others that are completely real time.. Also it seems as if it is given banks don't want to do anything on public space.. this is not true.. .at the least day to day remittances and "ordinary" payments ( excuse that word but it the actual term they use - so sorry ) ... are completely regulated and they have nothing to hide about. By moving this to rcl they would not only save on multi-party-costs etc (8 bps) , but also would completely eliminate needs for internal and external audits - as it would become public records... two sides for every coin - truth is somewhere out there - but definitely not at the extremes on either end... my good wishes to all, R8

    RCL + Ethereum for decentralized exchange

    It has been a while that the crypto community was thinking about a decentralized exchange, to remove fees, trust in private (mostly unknown) companies and so on. So my idea is: we have a "decentralized" market that is RCL. The point of failure is in giving trust to gateways to issue IOUs. The solution might come from Ethereum, where contracts do automatic bridges to issue and redeem IOUs. But I'm not very expert so I'd like to know from someone that knows Ethereum better if they can clarify some doubts: Can a contract on Ethereum "interact" with other blockchains? That is send currencies, check for payments,... Can a contract on Ethereum send Ripple transactions? How can the contract generate Ripple address and secrets and let them be secret (only known to the contract code)? To which ripple node should the contract send the transactions (this is the hardest point)? Can a contract be modified after it is running? For example to add the code to handle a new coin. Can a contract be stopped?

    stellar and ripple

    Well, I'll eat some crow for the nonprofit filing, but I stand by it being a joke. Pointing to the NFL just illustrates my point. Mainly that Stellar is designed to make loads of money for Jed while holding themselves out as a charity. I have no problem with someone getting rich off of making the world a better place, but I find the spin distasteful. Jed pointed to Ripple's greed as the reason he needed to start Sellar. He then produced a copy that could make him just as much money if it was successful. So, yeah I think its a joke. I'll lay off Jed and Stellar when Jed starts acting ethically. At this point that would require at a minimum arranging a OTC sale of his XRP to Ripple, the retraction of lies about Ripple with an apology, giving up his Stake in XLM or getting rid of the nonprofit designation, and no more marketing BS, like telling us the Stellar has 50% women users and millions of active accounts. Lastly, I just don't feel obligated to research the accuracy of Stellar marketing claims and puff pieces when I already know for a fact they have published and spread known falsehoods many times. At some point, you just lose your status as a credible source of information.

    Front-running (?) and other questions

    To my understanding, this is correct, but I've only glanced tangentially over the C++ code for it. Front-running via the transaction queue might be possible, but I think it's probably too costly to do profitably. The idea would be: Monitor for incoming transactions you might want to front-run (e.g. if you see a big order coming you buy and resell to that order at a higher price). When you see such a transaction, you force it to go into the transaction queue rather than the open ledger. This is easier said than done: You have to submit a whole lot of meaningless transactions with high transaction cost (adding up to a lot of XRP) The meaningless transactions would have to be sent from many different addresses, since any one address can have at most 10 transactions in the queue at once. Holding enough XRP to satisfy the reserve of all these accounts would be even more expensive. You can't kick a transaction out of an open ledger after it gets in, so you'd actually have to race the transaction across the net, submitting all your meaningless transactions to other rippled servers before they process the transaction you "saw" in step 1. This would be easier if the transaction you want to front-run got put in the queue rather than the open ledger at first. That would mean it's only possible to front-run transactions when the ledger is busy and the sender of the transaction didn't care to pay extra to get their transaction in fast. Keeping the open ledger full all the time would be crazy hard and expensive, basically DDoSing the RCL, because the open ledger's available spots increase when lots of transactions are making it in. While the transaction you want to front-run is in the queue, you submit the meaningful transaction(s) that are supposed to do the actual front-running business, paying higher transaction costs so you can cut in line. Then you wait for the transaction you front-ran to exit the queue... Profit! Unless the sender of the transaction took any countermeasures: If they notice they got queued and are worried about being front-run, they could submit a new equivalent of the same transaction with a higher transaction cost to get into the open ledger before your front-running transactions do. If they set the LastLedgerSequence aggressively enough, you don't have much time to do this; in fact, if their LLS is low enough their transaction will never get queued at all. In short, front-running via the queue seems like it would only be possible in some rare situations, and it wouldn't be cheap. I wouldn't try it.

    Beginners Tech?

    Taking a page from @tomxcs's community initiatives and @nikb wanting to engage new developers I was wondering if there was something for users wanting to contribute/ play with ripple that would require minimal tech skills and/ or knowledge and little to medium hardware/ software investment. I am thinking on the level @RafOlP scripts running inside google sheets as a perfect example Scripts that can be copied, products (google sheets) that is free and results that can be followed. Ideally something that could be used in conjunction with/ for the community- no matter the size of contribution (like a awesome way to link raspberry pi's together to run something...)

    I don't know Jed well enough to make a complete character statement, but Joyce I do know, and she is a great person. I wholeheartedly support her and can assure you her character and her history is the farthest thing from a joke. She's the real deal and does it for all the right reasons. I agree with this. Jed's history in this space is peppered with irresponsible decisions seemingly based upon wrong place/right time, right place/right time/wrong people dynamics, and a childish need for public vindication through fiscally irresponsible temper tantrums... In response to the OP - XRP "believers" are typically not fans of Jed due to the aforementioned history, the XRP he holds, and the establishment of Stellar which is essentially a Ripple fork. The best way to understand the difference is in the fundamental structure of the companies. RL is a for profit corporation who's goal is to build an internet of value by becoming the institutional standard for cross border and domestic value transfer. Stellar is a non-profit that "connects people to low-cost financial services to fight poverty and develop individual potential." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The difference between the two can be explained simply as the same technology being used to change the world of value transfer - however RL's approach is top down (Financial institutions \/---->eventually the consumer, and Stellars approach is bottom up (poverty stricken/basic needs ^---->eventually Financial institutions) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was also my hope that the two companies would someday meet in the middle and have a Jobs/Gates style reconciliation, but that future seems unlikely at this point.

    Ripple, India and Transaction by May

    I don't think Ripple is pushing the RCL to be used by individuals on a large scale. It's not scalable enough for that in terms of TX/s allowed, and Ripple are targeting settlement and payments between FIs - there aren't such a huge number of FIs who would want presence on the RCL yet. We, the cryptocurrency enthusiasts are not the whole public, we are a tiny fraction of the population. There can be new Gateways in India with lots of clients but again I expect those to be limited to a relatively small community of cryptocoin speculators. Not FX traders, and certainly not people looking for a PayPal replacement or such. We are very very far from there. So it should not affect the scarcity of XRP to any significant degree at this stage. Not yet, at least.

    What is this? Products, bots, trading XRP? Wallets that include XRP? .... Or some other toys that forever have to stay on the sidelines of finance? The MAIN problem with crypto (all of them) is the in/out and connection to.... fiat. Like it our not but, despite your wish for evangelism, the only religion still ruling the world are those units of value like USD or EUR and 99.99999% still want to use. Right! It's fiat that keeps on ruling. And despite all your wishes or hopes ... this will NOT gone change soon. ALL products you want to develop on whatever crypto will have to face it. Even the "mighty" Bitcoin cannot (and will not) find a place in the daily usage of payments (rewatch the video on that Tokyo test to live 3 days on Bitcoin, and try not to laugh - and that's were BTC is after 10 long years...). Fiat is not going away, at least not for a looooong future. Once we agree on that (you can also opt to go on dreaming of course) we have to see how crypto can find a place in financial espaces dictated by fiat. Well you may dream as much as you want, but that "rock of high value" will not come down under the pressure of whatever community. Not Bitcoin, not Ethereum, not Ripple. The only 2 who saw it soon were Ethereum by not laying focus on financial but on contracts - they have zero interest in banks or finance, but just looking at "how can we improve our present computing grid" and a community of developers indeed has a great value for that focus. And there was Ripple .... they MUST focus on payments and forex as it is the CORE of their products. Now you go tell me how the hell a community can be in any form or size at help to open banks or to change regulations? Indeed - in NO way they (we) can! Maybe just a little bit to scream out the message .... and than hope that we were yelling loud enough so that those big bosses on the top of FI can hear it once in a while. So Ripple MUST do it on their very own and for my part, with a rather limited team, they are doing it FANTASTIC. They have a GREAT product. They are now very well known by SWIFT, banks, federal reserves, ... They have a foot and a word in the internet standards bodies. They could bring together a great team of developers and representives that are able to open doors at a high level. And so on..... But they indeed just have a small community that can only follow closely what Ripple develops and give them a helping hand in spreading the message. But hé, tell me what more could they do? Step in by Google and convince them to start a GBank based on Ripple? Or an FBank for Zuckerberg? Did Ripple do it all very right? No! They even took an ugly start with a huge mistake in XRP distribution as a good example. But for the last two years, for my part, they are an example how to build out an incredible smart idea to something useful for the whole globe. Will they succeed? Not a sure thing, but they toke the right decisions and the right steps to make it happen some day. And even if it will not be Ripple or XRP that some day in the future can become the backbone of payments, it will be something that will look very very much to the model they are building on - without the need of a community as communities usually do not build backbones - they just make use of them

    Hey guys, So yeah I'm a little confused why the RMG announcement caused such a fuss. It seems at some point someone in this community connected the dots between CME and Ripple and assumed the RMG project would happen on RCL? I know for a fact Ripple never made the claim, mostly because when I was at the CME I worked on the RMG project a little bit. If I remember correctly, no fully public blockchain was ever considered for that project. As an aside, I have to commend the TRM team for choosing some really great partners to work with. Bitgo in particular was a really great move. Lastly, remember that we are laser focused on cross border payments and often we get pitched ideas and turn them down because they don't fit what we are working on. As for the CME not supporting us, we have a GREAT relationship with them and if something makes sense for us to work on we'll make it happen. That's a big organization with tons going on so I'm sure we'll have ample opportunity to work together. Hope everybody's doing well.

    Front-running (?) and other questions

    If the transaction you want to front-run makes it into the open ledger of enough servers, it'll pass consensus and make it into the next validated ledger. At that point, you can hope that the canonical ordering randomly favors you, but that's not reliable. You can't kick a transaction "back into the queue" from the open ledger on one server. You might be able to race it to the open ledger on other servers.

    I'm using the free version for my project. If that project scales up, I would certainly consider the commercial version. A high-end server costs around 25k, so an additional 5k to get the most of that hardware can actually be a huge cost saver. But the interesting point is: nginx, without the help of a big developer community, yet with a small and focused development team, has kicked Apache's butt and will probably exceed Apache's market share pretty soon. Similarly how Ripple will kick Bitcoin's butt, with compelling features and raw performance.

    Front-running (?) and other questions

    I think it depends on the role of front running. In donch case it was an arbitrage bot and since circular payments are not supported (https://github.com/ripple/rippled/issues/1257) it was super important to frontrun because the risk is to succeed in one transaction and fail the second one, leaving the bot with useless (and probably lower priced) currencies. If you want to front run big orders (the canonical case) it is risky because: You can send the buy transaction with fill_or_kill flag --> no risks here The sell transaction has to arrive before the big order --> here is the risk If you don't want to have extra funds/liquidity, your buy transaction should arrive before your sell transaction --> this might not be a problem if you have high liquidity in both currencies So I see the only possibility to use the fee queue, but I didn't have time to go in the details of the code and to test it. According to the description it seems possible. This is right but you can see the transaction, so you can front run only the ones without LastLedgerSequence as next ledger. BTW one can always avoid to be front runned (in many ways), so you can use it only for orders that are not big and from people not using ad-hoc software, for example people manually sending orders to buy XRP.

    I do not understand what you mean by RCL used by individuals. RCL in my view isn't to be used as such by endusers. One always needs at least a wallet, a gateway and a connected (private) ledger. Compare it to trains transporting people over a grid of railways, than RCL compares to the railways, digital assets like XRP to the trains, people to fiat and the railway stations to wallets, exchanges, gateways, private (banking)ledgers. Even in peer to peer fiat value moving, one needs a trusted service provider (like a bank) to hold those digital values. Unless we all start exchanging native digital assets like XRP peer to peer, but I'm pretty sure this is not going to happen soon... Of course Ripple is not pushing this rock as it's far far far from ready to move.... no matter how hard they might push...

    Ripple Validator Profits?

    Now, totally wild speculation. You might be able to further decentralize this process running a UNL selection formula directly in RCL. This would require each validator to publish its own attributes along with knowledge of other validators attributes. Basically, each validator would have to hold its own registry, with verified/unverified designations for the other validators attributes. Each validator selects their preferences, and RCL runs a voting round for the topology. If you didn't like your UNL you could always refuse to participate. Edit: Understatement of the year.... This seems very complicated to actually implement. If Ripple pulls off something like this they are truly gods.

    Ripple Validator Profits?

    Just a guess, but I think there will be a validator registry. (lots of speculating here,) When you run a validator you give the registry what ID and other info you are willing. A list is generated with attributes for each available validator. (Ie. location, identity, jurisdiction, statements of validator policy, uptime, agreement rate.) Instead of directly selecting your UNL, you select attributes you care about. Ie. I don't want any validators from X jurisdiction, I want good agreement rate etc.) Then the registry issues you a UNL which satisfies the topology requirements for RCL. The real difficulty with decentralizing RCL is that you need to have minimum overlap between the UNL's. Something like this would guarantee that happens. You do need to place some small trust in the registry, but depending on how Ripple goes about this it could be extremely minimal. It is possible to make a list which can not be fiddled with without people knowing about it. For example, the statements from each validator held by the registry could be signed by the validator, and the list could be public. If you did that and made the selection formula for the UNL public, there is no way I can think of for the registry to cheat.

    But Fatcat the fact is that for the market does not matter if people get tired, waiting 3 or 4 years in sideways, and if they read every daily XRP news or they know the code behind the technology. The market is so cold about our knowledge, feelings and beliefs. A guy who doesn`t know nothing and bought 1 day before the great pump makes more money than those who lost their faith and get tired - and I am not recommending one to know nothing about his investments. So, its comprehensive that you are questioning yourself what is wrong with people who hold XRPs ("speculators", "whishful thinking") while you, that held tons of coins and believed since the beginning, you that knows how the things are and knows that XRPs has no utility because banks are not using it (or at least no one can prove to you), its comprehensible that you think that is important that someone must prove to you that XRPs has value because banks are already using it. And if banks will touch XRPs in the near future and the prices spikes just because the market knows that it is going to happen soon? Maybe, the thing is that you are looking for the wrong side of the story. That you simply aren`t understanding what is going on in the market. Maybe your story will be among the saddest, the people who lost their faith, and lost the profits because the wrong way of think about the market. Maybe people who are looking for a proof of banks using XRPs will realize that when you get what you want (Banks using XRPs) prices have already skyrocketed. Its i the way markets work (with expectations and anticipation). In the beginning all the great business, leaders in his markets, is just small and difficult to see all the results that one are expecting to see. Those who wait to see the "big things" before the right time, those who do not have the necessary patience just stay behind the big profits. I sincerely wish that you find what you are looking for and make huge profits on the market! But maybe what you are looking for is not the right thing to explain XRP utility and value. Maybe it is just your mind that needs a reason to justify to yourself that you are right in your decision to leave XRP market.

    I found a detailed article of Consortium. http://goodway.co.jp/fip/htdocs/jod3zqjch-3242/ road map is there. The consortium is a plan to start foreign exchange commercial use in winter from autumn of 2017. And they are plans to start domestic exchange at the end of 2017.

    It's a shame that good news can't even be recognized and acknowledged on this forum anymore.

    Beginners Tech?

    Something relatively easy would be a script that exports transaction data from rippled (e.g. by entering a single address) to Beancount/Ledger-cli format (http://ledger-cli.org/) I'm not so sure what people with minimal tech skills would do though, maybe run a rippled validator for fun or start their own gateway? Maybe already moving away from Poloniex and other off-ledger exchanges would already be some success...

    stellar and ripple

    True, but most traders (polo) seem to trade on P&D rather than facts and intelligence

    @ Vertigo and @ winston - With utmost respect to you Zerpbox legends - I disagree...I believe as crypto is the hottest craze at the moment and that Volatility and Speculation are the order of the day when it comes to crypto...you just have to ask questions..There is just no escaping that fact. Btc came in with 21 million coins(Limit) , Ripple had a reason for coming in with a 100 Billion(Limit)- one reason would have been to offset major volatility that just about hits every other altcoin and could be a major turn off for a possible investor...especially the archaic old money of the FI. In that regard it would hav been a brilliant move on their part(apart from the pump of a few weeks ago- XRP was the king of stability). However times change...and those that are in denial(?SWIFT) end up condenmed to history...If ripple would have a change of strategy(Lockin) relatively early in the game, would that not be an indication of a company that is very dynamic and always ONE step ahead of the pack...So again, I'ma just asking... "The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life." - Confucius

    Think you got to separate effect on XRP pricing into speculation and determination on real needs or even shortage. The first is unpredictable as built on uncertainty and expectation - real or not. For the latter it is way to early. FI's do not like stepping in the dark and I suppose them building on the system rather slow and step by step. Unfortunately, IMO the last step to take wil be the full usage of XRP. For all steps I think they all will wanna do their own POC and testing on those important issues like security, reliability and scalability. Just be a little bit patient, if no other dinosaur shows up on the horizon... like @miguel said... dawn might be brilliant... but you got to wait until it comes...
