  1. Hi guys, I just recorded an interview in which Brad Garlinghouse is spreaking at Bloomberg radio, which I want to share with you all. Since our forum doesn't support sound formats I uploaded it to dropbox.You can find the interview at this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cstym51kljm71ai/record20170420223525 (2).mp3?dl=0 I hope you guys appreciate this and we will have a great time at my 2 dollar party next year. Best Regards, All day changing Churchill

    Future of XRP

    XRP is a long term investment. If you're chasing short term gains you're better off throwing money at the pile of stinky alts that lack the business use case, leadership, vision, and tech that Ripple have. They're building relationships with financial institutions notorious for being conservative. Progress and innovation take time. Any misstep could be catastrophic in banks losing trust in Ripple and their value proposition. Slow and steady wins this race. If you don't intend on holding for 2-5 years, you're kidding yourself.

  3. Money makes people cray cray... Anyway, I'd be careful maligning the contributions of early founder or employee unless you were there. Bad code at least gives you something more than a powerpoint to show, and no company delivers a polished product on its first effort. Also, I'd be careful not to fall prey to the myth of an alternative superior outcome. That is, we assume that if Ripple done things differently they would be in a better position but given how few of the blockchain companies have achieved even a modicum of mainstream success it's quite possible that ANY alternative path

  6. The IMF has enormous clout in signalling to global markets what the direction is for technology. The fact that they're meeting with this group instead of discussing remediation of the legacy SWIFT system should be a clear signal. Some of the brick and mortar banks might be reluctant to give up their multi-day float while transferring global funds, but the IMF has very different motivations. They are interested in keeping global commerce moving fluid and fast.

    Of course, prudent and very limited calculation can only start from that point in time when real effective usage begins... It's like a new drug in pharma.... once it has passed FDA phase 4, a possible economic impact can get calculated..... Before that it's all speculation .... at best some educated guessing...

  9. https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/30458/alipay-and-wechat-near-3-trillion-payments-milestone The sheer vast numbers mentioned got my attention. This is an example of settlement all within one currency, but if it's any indication, just imagine what Ripple could do on the back end to settle payments in one country and automatically transition those funds to another fiat currency.

    Welcome to the forum Ripple has mentioned they don't engage in short term buying or selling to manipulate the price. They want XRP to go up as much as you do, probably more.

This way it might invite not just present members to discus those 28 and more to come projects, but it might also attract new members with interest in this kind of technical charity - After all Rippleworks was born under the hood of Ripple. I've been several times in Africa working for charity in technical related projects and I can advise everybody who has time and skills to take at least a look at Rippleworks or other comparable organisations.

Wow, that's amazing. $2.9 trillion = $7.9 billion per *day* $331m / hour $5.5m / min $92k / sec Initially I assumed what I thought might be a reasonable average payment of $2 - $20 to get an average transaction rate of 4.5k - 45k txn's / sec, however... I located the actual reports and they have plenty of numbers and charts: Summary / Full Report What's revealed is the average amount paid per year, per user is in the $1000's. I couldn't find any numbers on actual *amount* of payments (and maybe it's in there somewhere if anyone can find it), but I've extrapolated from other

    Regarding valuation of XRP, one always has to take a few things in consideration. There's a lot of mechanism that can move the price. First and at this time it is ... pure speculation. Nobody can predict the moves, neither make any reasonable calculation on that matter. It's a psychological game with all sort of players. It's about pumping, FUD, guesses about (non)activity by huge holders, technical & commercial developments and news, journalistic writings, TV airtime, competition making advancements or just noise, market manipulation, .... just to name a few that can push the minds in wha

    Future of XRP

    I agree with Digitalis. I think a long-term perspective is needed here. Not that there's anything wrong with looking for short-term gains, but if you consider a 10% drop a "debacle," then maybe XRP is not the right investment for you. Cryptos in general are not known for their stability. Therein lies the opportunity.

    Don't fall to the whims of the market. Sell when the price is high, not when it's low. The key is patience - not just to XRP, but for any investment such as stocks as well.

  25. Great quote. But not only the money is there, also the users, including almost every business on this planet. If Ripple is connected to the banks, it's not only connected to the Big Pie of Value, but also to the largest number of users you can imagine. Try competing with that!

    Thanks! thought I'de join up as I look through these threads daily...yeah I can understand normal market fluctuations, hopefully Ripple can inspire more investors by reflecting it in the price.. I guess I should shut everything off and check back at the end of the year as stated by others haha. I kind of messed up with ETH as well. Had a good amound when it was around $13-15, but due to the split ETC /hack, and daily checking, I had pulled out and missed out on the major run they experienced several weeks ago.... patience is key i guess

  28. Christine Lagarde is the most important person for the monetair system of the world. And Ripple is a part of that meeting with Christine Lagarde IMF. Ripple is not a Mickey Mouse Club at this moment. But a really serious world business player for the monetair system.

    I've been perusing this forum as well as r/ripple on reddit and just wanted to gather some opinions... I know i've seen positive and negative things, I recently brought a bunch of xrps, and I am fairly confident in the price going up within the next several years, depending on developments and news obviously. Im not quite sure why the price seems to be going lower and stuck around .03 and lower. I understand that Ripple Labs want a stable coin to build banker and investor confidence, however, I'm also concerned that the price could be artificially kept low?

    Why is it that we drop off a bit and the world turns upside down and everyone comes on here asking "WHAT'S HAPPENING?" "SHOULD WE SELL?" "XRP IS DEAD!' I get it, people have invested money into something that may or may not take off but if you have to consistently panic then you probably shouldn't play the game. Look at all the red for every crypto right now, nothing is consistently on an upswing; nothing at all. It's 4-20 today so if you are going to worry, then partake in some extra curricular activities..

I'd break the laws of physics if I could. But that's me, I understand others have morals and I respect that.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that after a night sleep I am now on board with @nikb 's tantamount of theft viewpoint. This is the logic that got me in: When you enter a cryptocurrency, you are entering a game. By participating (accepting tokens), you agree to play by the rules of the game. You can help creating better rules, but when you try to change the rules in your own favor, or collude with other players to do so, even going as far as kicking the founder of the game out, you are not playing fair. Not playing fair is the primitive form of illegal, so yes, I now completely agree it

Quit complaining that they kept the fruits of their labor. I would never trust a decentralized network that forks to forceably take the holdings of a few individuals out of envy.

Then start afresh with a new distribution plan where XRP are only acquired via regulated financial institutions that have partnered with Ripple Inc, Or maybe not even a fork, but issues an ammendment on all its own validators to such a

  50. One of the WORST things you can do as an investor is start imaging numbers that are baseless and based on hope (lifestyle dreams). If you are not diversified across a number of things and have all your eggs in this one basket and come back 50 times a day to watch the quote on XRP then it is unlikely that you will make the right decision long term. Any investment that has ever worked out happened in ways that no one anticipated. The price mechanism can play such insane tricks on your mind that majority that can not handle. Let this thing do its thing....come back in 6 months and check
