    It's kind of sad to see the community so desperate for news/price movement btw (not targeting the author, but in general), I've been around for some time now, but it was never this extreme. There are a lot of threads currently literally clutching at straws, just chill out guys.

    http://www.news18.com/news/india/sbi-changes-names-ifsc-codes-of-around-1300-branches-1600101.html Quoted are the characteristics of account addresses for ILP. Would anyone know the 1300 newly assigned account addresses? Perhaps they might not start with "r" but a lack of 0 and l might exist and offer a clue? I have found many websites to identify branch codes but nothing regarding new codes.

    Guys, I have to believe @JoelKatz is being facetious here (look up 'facetious', moonbabies). Put yourself in his shoes, a non-stop onslaught of greedy children pestering him about when they can buy their lambos. He's not psychic. So if anybody takes him seriously and then screams bloody 'scam-coin!!!' at 5:10 pm this Friday, then maybe they'll grow up and stop pestering the poor guy with gibberish questions.

    XRP Performance - market compairson

    I waited 4 years too, and I had a great return (even if I forgot an account selling many k XRP at a ridiculous price). I'll wait 4 more years if needed to retire :), but I had (have) other coins too (BTC, ETH, STR)...diversification is always great, especially in this weird market.

    Having now been “exposed” as a mere aspiring cryptographer, I will refrain from participating further in this conversation and let @Max Entropy lecture you all on the seriousness on this “AES collision” produced by Google. Sounds important...

    The effort you refer to is to crack what are known as “brain wallets.” These are wallets derived from passphrases, or other information people memorize. You can generate such a wallet on Ripple, but I’d advise you not to for the simple reason that your wallet is as secure as your passphrases and if it’s somethinf you memorize, it’s almost certainly not secure enough. Ripple seeds are 128 bits long. That means that there are 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 possible keys. The number is obviously so large as to be nonsensical. So let’s try a thought experiment. Let’s say you had a billion computer and that each of those computers were capable of checking a trillion keys per second. And let’s pretend you didn’t have to worry about power, cooling, managing or anything else. You just pressed a button and your 1 billion computers went to work searching through all of those keys. To check them all would take you over 10 billion years... Bottom line: if your key was generated randomly, the chance that it can be cracked as so small that you can safely call it zero. — Postscript: Note that the above calculation roughly holds even if your machines are full-blown quantum computers. Of course, given general purpose quantum computers capable of running Shor’s algorithm won’t use a brute force attack like what I describe. They will make other attacks possible. While such attacks are not a risk today and won’t be a risk tomorrow, we’ll work to migrate to post-quantum cryptography before it does become a quantifiable risk. For more fun math and ridiculous hypotheticals, check out my earlier post.

    Litecoin Market Cap just surpassed Ripple

    I called the LTC move a few days ago on Discord. Bought in at $92. Why is it moving? The reason is actually very simple. A bazillion new coinbase users, only 3 options, LTC is the lowest. When every coin spikes on technicals and irrational exuberance, yet XRP is flat or up a tiny bit on MASSIVE fundamentals, you know it's only a matter of time for XRP to have its day again. Not worried. Doesn't mean you can't profit predicting the movements of the herd...

    A collision with AES? Uhm... please just stop talking. Please. You're making yourself look worse and worse by the second. OK... you won't stop talking. Ripple uses ECDSA for signing with the curve secp256k1. It also uses Ed25519. Second, you're confused what about Apple requires developers to do as well as what the relevant laws are. Lastly, the old days of "export" and "non-export" cryptography are gone. Phil Zimmerman's PGP marked the beginning of the end of that nonsense. Since the late '00s, very loose restrictions on the export of non-military cryptography exists, mostly focused around exporting to "rogue states" and terrorist organizations (the "B1" and "D1" lists). But what do I know? I'm just a cryptographer and have been developing applications that make heavy use of cryptography for almost 20 years.

    The Very Beginning Shift/Shift Payments Since 2014, Ripple has been experimenting on multiple projects developing a debit card that would allow owners to easily spend their digital currencies. It first began as a joint effort along side Shift Payments to create the "Shift Card". Which the project was focused on https://ripple.com/insights/a-debit-card-powered-by-ripple/ The prototype card was integrated with both Coinbase and Ripple accounts at one point with the partners wanting to integrate the card with loyalty point programs and regular bank accounts in the future. Ripple was planned to be used for the settlement protocol for payment between fiat currencies, digital currencies, mobile minutes, etc. And in further innovation, https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ It would later be released that Shift Payments, now Shift, was introducing a VISA backed Bitcoin debit card. Suggesting the probability Ripple had been introduced to VISA long ago.... https://techcrunch.com/2015/11/20/coinbase-partners-with-shift-payments-to-issue-bitcoin-debit-card/ Unfortunately nothing came from it and the test wallets they used for the pilots have become dormant for several years. (although the main wallet has 375k XRP just sitting there) https://bithomp.com/explorer/rKbtT6j1JGjFnwkUp2Na1W8XE5Z79VsMYi https://bithomp.com/explorer/rpfFnyaChjzB8RNfT6VDYioFWfjghYXnvb Shift appears to have moved on but a possible explanation as to why nothing arose from it might be how cryptocurrencies were not favorably perceived in 2014. However one of the co-founders of Shift, Meg Nakamura added that https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ Whether they ever use Ripple or not in the future is up for debate but one of Shift's co-founders was Gregg Kidd, the chief risk officer at Ripple during the time. Interesting enough both founded Hard + Yaka, a fund that makes early round investments in exchange space startups. Previous investments? Global ID, Gatehub, Ripple, Coinbase, Shift, Bitso (expect XRPL to run thru it), ShapeShift and to our next topic of conversation.....Marqeta. http://hardyaka.com/ Marqeta Marqeta is an open API payment card issuing platform that has been enabling businesses to process credit and debit card payments. Marqeta has been establishing itself as a big company that has attracted notable clients and investors to utilize it's technology. Facebook and Oink are example of clients while this past July, VISA made a strategic investment in the company and formed a partnership to drive further innovations in commercial and consumer payments globally. https://techcrunch.com/2017/07/26/visa-marqeta-25m/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170726005359/en/Visa-Marqeta-Form-Global-Partnership-Drive-New https://www.pymnts.com/news/partnerships-acquisitions/2017/visa-and-marqeta-partner-to-transform-global-card-issuance/ https://techcrunch.com/2013/05/16/powering-the-facebook-card-marqeta-raises-14m-from-greylock-israel-to-recreate-the-starbucks-loyalty-card-for-merchants/ Marqeta is compatible with the Discover, MasterCard, and VISA networks. https://www.marqeta.com/api/docs/VhypzxwAANwA_Vgx/cards The CEO of Marqeta, Jason Gardner, has been very vocal and supportive of blockchain technology and it's possible applications. adding, It was also revealed in January 2016 that Marqeta had been working with Ripple on a defunct debit card product that would allow users to spend cryptocurrencies at traditional points of sale. https://www.coindesk.com/marqeta-ceo-bitcoin-blockchain-tech/ With the test wallets to prove this collaboration, https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwEFnxs7GQsHXBG9ARZNYcmBkZc81zphMC https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwYx6Mp1n8yMbGN9K4MkHsSNvibK4MPjQF (being really active last year and even doing fiat exchanges between USD and JPY) Only time will tell where this collaboration will lead to but it's safe to say that Ripple has really positioned itself well in regards to VISA and Mastercard. And one other interesting development has been Marqeta's new partnership with Ali Pay. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71286/alipay-joins-with-marqeta-for-us-payments-play https://paymentweek.com/2017-10-27-alipay-marqeta-team-alipays-payment-processing-ambition/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171020005664/en/Alipay-Taps-Marqeta-Expedite-Payment-Acceptance-Retail One notable thing did occur (and is accelerating as we speak) this past March, Ripple introduced Payments Channels into the RCL/XRPL and ILP. Thus allowing the XRP Ledger to scale, https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-continues-to-bring-internet-of-value-to-life-new-features-increase-transaction-throughput-to-same-level-as-visa/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/ripple-claims-transaction-thoroughput-now/ The network has now scaled enough to sustain the amount of transactions the VISA network sustains. One last note, https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/31227/wirex-and-sbi-holdings-team-on-japan-cryptocurrency-payments-card AirWallex Ripple partners with ties to major credit card issuers don't end there. AirWallex is an international payments startup that is based in Australia that in October, it's partnership with Ripple became publicly disclosed. https://ripple.com/ripple_press/ripples-blockchain-network-now-100-strong/ This past May, AirWallex held a Series A Round in which it raised $13 million dollars in funds for the company. These investors included MasterCard, Gobi Ventures/Partners which is one of Alibaba's investment managers, and Tencent leading the investment round. Tencent's WeChat has roughly 980 million monthly users, with users sending about $1.2 trillion in mobile payments in 2016. Along with mobile payments in China, Tencent wants to expand WeChat Pay usage to other regions including South Africa, Philippines, and Malaysia. https://bankinnovation.net/2017/04/alipay-wechat-processed-3-trillion-in-2016/ http://news.abs-cbn.com/business/11/22/17/wechat-pay-launches-in-philippines-with-asia-united-bank http://www.marketing-interactive.com/tencent-confirms-plans-to-launch-wechat-pay-in-malaysia/ http://blog.wechat.com/2015/11/25/south-africa-launches-wechat-wallet-the-first-country-officially-outside-china/ And there is one more region that AirWallex is targeting thru a formation of a partnership this past week, Europe. On December 1, AirWallex announced a partnership with Railsbank to enable AirWallex also became Railsbank's Airwallex’s VP of Europe Expansion, Michael Stachowiak speaking on the partnership shared, https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71788/airwallex-joins-railsbank-platform https://www.pymnts.com/news/b2b-payments/2017/airwallex-railsbank-international-payments-partnership/ Along with it's partnership with AirWallex, the previous day Railsbank was one of eleven companies to be chosen by MasterCard to be included in it's Start Path program. With Railsbank being chosen for it's ability to give companies access to global banking networks thru APIs. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71779/latest-mastercard-start-path-program-includes-blockchain-digital-identity-and-healthcare-fintechs Want to know what happened on November 30? (same day of Railsbank and MasterCard's annoucement) The European Central Bank hosted a digital transformation conference that Ripple was invited to. https://www.ecb.europa.eu/pub/conferences/shared/pdf/20171130_digital_transformation_conf/Conference_brochure_20171130.pdf A panel which consisted of Banca Sella, the Central Bank of Netherlands, PayPal, and Ripple was held to speak on the disruptive potential of fintech innovations for the retail payments ecosystem. Want to know what happened on December 1? (same day as AirWallex and Railsbank's partnership) Brad gave us a nice tweet The VISA and MasterCard connections are there and more subtle Alibaba and Tencent connections to Ripple are surfacing. There's a lot of money between Europe and China in e-retail.............

    the dream is to abandon an old system and go with something new. problem1: My parents are still thinking in Guilders( Dutch currency) instead of EURO. We already have the euro for more than 15 years! People have sentiments with their current currencies problem2: Everytime the wifi somehow doesnt work i receive a call. My old folks simply don't understand new technical things. They will never be able to understand how to use crypto's, therefore they will never have trust in it. The majority of the population doesnt understand new technology and has no trust in it problem3: Almost every homeowner in the world has a mortgage. That mortgage has to be paid in the local FIAT currency. Banks will not change that any time soon. People are tied by that. and i havent even started yet on regulations by governments... Ripple is trying to implement the blockchain technology in a way that the majority of the population will never notice it. They can send their fiat currency to another fiat currency in a matter of seconds and supercheap.

    XRP Performance - market compairson

    Great insights from @tulo and @Professor Hantzen Another important note: Your emotional investment is of no concern to each coin. Aka you can't will something to happen. Best to diversify, and keep tabs on your investments from a place without emotion. Create a set of indicators to help you determine action. Here are a few of mine: Something happens - good or bad, price action or announcement. Does this fundamentally change any aspects of the future potential? If so better or worse? Worse - consider shifting a portion somewhere else based on impact. Does this move us closer or further from the goal? Further - consider moving a portion to something else. Does the news and price reaction make sense? If it seems like an overreaction - consider profit taking. Under reaction - consider increasing position What you will find is that the best answer 90% of the time to is hold. But at least you get there based on logic and reason vs fomo and exasperation.

    The thing that is missing on this forum is some sort of indicator, determining the value and subject of the article. The reader has the opportunity to give some kind of indication to future readers about the articles value. If you for example read a post and you believe it has something worthy to say about XRP being utilized, - Interesting read about XRP usage (recommended by 70% of a total of 100 voters) - OK read nothing special about XRP usage (20% of a total of 100 voters) - ******** (Quatsch) about XRP usage (10% of a total of 100 voters) In my opinion, this would make the forum better.

    Because if your crypto isn't going up 10% per day it's a sign that it's a complete failure. Crypto market is conditioning everyone to become like ADHD kids. It's truly horrifying. Edit: Are we there yet?

    I wont go into much detail about quantities, but I also held Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum & ETC after the split (as well as some now worthless coins). Disregarding 2017 the performance over the last couple of years was not amazing (even though generally out performing bank interest). My tip: Do your own research and have a balanced portfolio that is consistent with your risk profile (I was also over weighted on XRP at one point), there are many projects now that will not be around in a couple of years, if your planning to hold long term think about what can weather different storms (a bear market, regulation, scaling issues) and what "Currencies / tokens" are completely unnecessary. IMO- As we go into 2018, allot of the projects that have raised funds this year will start to deliver on the "products" they have built. we will start to see companies fail that are more in balance with traditional start ups (%wise), when this happens allot of people are going to loose allot of money. Trying to pick that killer app is a very challenging task for even the most seasoned VC, trying to pick the killer app from a white paper and no MVP is going to be a hell of allot harder.

    So many possibilities it makes little sense to speculate so I suppose just looking for the date - 15th or 22nd? 22nd activity on CHAPS and BoE: https://www.psr.org.uk/sites/default/files/media/PDF/PSR-board-mins-Sept-2017.pdf ...but endless other possibilities: AliPay and WeChat who are partnered with dlocal, announced Ripple customer. Both partnered with BNP Paribas, Alipay also partnered with Barclays and UniCredit: https://jingdaily.com/wechat-pay/ I believe we are still waiting on more info from the Fed on their Faster Payments Scheme. Then of course there always the other big tech players in back of mind... Google, Apple, etc. Given the timing of the announcement of 5PM PT, seems probable it's Japan/China/India related but who knows. Excited to find out.

    Ripple and Amazon can be real!

    There is one additional piece of information that might help solve this puzzle: Since dLocal is a RippleNet member, their customers are serious candidates for futures partnerships: Uber, DealeXtreme, Godaddy, Payoneer and so on. If Payoneer customers can become Ripple customers, the network effects will be nuts. Just look at their partnerships: https://www.payoneer.com/about/press-releases/ #XRPthestandard is step by step becoming real in my opinion.

    I prefer not to dwell on this type of pointless speculation. Someone saying they know things but "cannot tell you" doesn't help anyone. It just leads to big problems like Consensus back in May. I'll wait for proper announcements, not rumours and vague hints. (Ripple's had more than enough of those)

    Yes I was reading on reddit that Coinbase plans to implement XRP to deal with the availability issues. Due to unprecedented demand Coinbase has been unable to handle the volume of traffic from new users, it has been decided that the best solution to this is to add Cryptos most despised currency in the hope that this will help drive down traffic and disincentives new users from signing up.
