    Experience tells me that this is too much of a dangerous game to play. It's still very tempting though but personally I have to learn from previous mistakes. I'm just holding.

    The interledger has been standardized to the API of the web browser You will be able to pay with XRP with interledger with one click XRP will soon be expanding to real world if it becomes web standard. https://www.w3.org/TR/payment-request/ ”XRP” are coming out in the document updated on June 7, 2018 You can see that XRP payment is assumed https://imgur.com/a/kgweNv6 Settlement using Payment Request API will be mainstream in the future. Interledger will be used on this backside. It also uses Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Facebook. This is the demo of Microsoft and Google's Payment Request API, the operation is the same but the purchase procedure is unified like this. Even without preparing a shopping cart, you can purchase it by API call. Microsoft Payment Request API Demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uccDswZXUPk Google https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmqZxP6iTpo Ripple's interledger is used behind these APIs. You will probably also be able to pay various cryptocurrencies. If you are going to buy in cryptocurrency that shopping site don't support, XRP will become bridge currency and you will be able to exchange it for purchase. Then in the network of Fiat currency and virtual currency payment, XRP will become the key currency gradually. Do you know the meaning of this web standardization? And if XRP becomes the base currency, the usage of XRP will increase. As the usage of XRP increases, services that can be settled by XRP will also increase. And the demand of XRP explodes. interledger brings key currency-ization of XRP. This would mean that the interledger protocol is used behind the payment request API adopted by Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Facebook. Demand generating of XRP is ready. The Payment Request API is made as an open standard specification and is supported by many browsers. Supported browsers are: Chrome for Android, Chrome for iOS, Chrome for desktop (Mac, Windows, Linux) Microsoft Edge, Samsung Internet Browser, Apple Safari That is, ILP is already secretly hidden in almost all browsers on the pretext of standardization. The Japanese bank consortium is coming, but the interledger is already being used in the world's banks. The application of Santander Bank is already using interledger. It's not a distant future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEIf9W3GOYA

    ETF’s require custodian solution, I.e which regulated exchange or Invesment Bank will take responsibility of the crypto in Institutional inventory. Custodian solutions will come after regulatory frame work for the top 100 Tokens which assuming the SEC is working on. CBOE futures at the moment is next to 100% gambling at a roulette table. If you Go LONG bitcoin futures for instance, and the price rises when the contract expires you are paid in cash, not in Bitcoin. This was a smart work around the regulatory problem, however this causes manipulation by the hands of Large Hodlers. Say I had 100K Bitcoin, I’am an early investor, or a massive miner. Now I know if i dump my bitcoins across multiple exchanges I can manipulate the market to turn bearish, simultaneously go short CBOE futures as a bet that the price will fall, making insane amounts of money, not to mention I can now buy back Bitcoin at a discount and continue skimming the pigs in the market every time the market rally’s. ETF’s on the other hand are a share of a very diluted and public fund much like a mutual fund, the value of which goes up and down as the market moves based on the contents of the fund. Say a Fund is 25% of Bitcoin, ETH, XRP and BCH. This fund is raised by invesment bank prior to launch , to do so the invesment bank needs to take reaponsability of buying the contents of the fund directly from exchanges like Coinbase and SBI and also to take responsability of securing and protecting it for the time span of the maturity of the ETF. Sorry i got tired of typing here’s the summary : I.e ETF’s = Bank FOMO. ETF’s= Regulation ETF’s= Bitcoin ATH x (2to5) ETF’s= Codius contracts= Quadrillions of $ derivative market to tap into for XRP(because fastest transaction speed/Most liquid asset) XRP= ($Censored)

    What if XRP is security?

    Not investment advice, just my opinion. The SEC would be dumb beyond belief if they unintentionally destroy such a valuable tech. just to apply laws stemming from the stock market crash of 1930 that was designed to protect investors against scams and market crashes by limiting the offerings of certain instruments to a very small set of "qualified" investors, requiring companies to pay very expensive annual registrations fees (1 to 7 million USD), and adequately inform investors about securities so that they can make informed decisions before buying securities on the secondary market. If XRP is deemed a security, this could allow some foreign company or country to step in and fill that void.

    Absolutely - this is why I am all in on XRP - the utility volume. There's many a paradigm shift ahead of us. This particular speculation paradigm tied to BTC has its days numbered. The pain of being early is the waiting. The pleasure is the stupendous profit that comes after the waiting.

    This. to me, is only an option when we've just had a big rally, like in january. Not when we're already 6 months deep in a bear market. But even then it's still a gamble. I don't like gambling.

    Here's a nice take on India's banks and XRP... Banks In India See More Uses Cases In Ripple (XRP) Than In Any Crypto By Yusuff Olayode Supoto On Jun 29, 2018 https://ethereumworldnews.com/banks-in-india-see-more-uses-cases-in-ripple-xrp-than-in-any-crypto/ "Among them is Kotak Mahindra Bank, a leading bank in India with more than 1300 branches in the country, which will be using RippleNet, a decentralized network of payment providers and banks that connect to each other through Ripple’s technology." "Earlier, IndusInd was among the banks that announced they would join the RippleNet community for seamless cross-border remittance. There is more hope in India for Ripple than any other blockchain technology, may be due to Gupta’s assertion that “Ripple’s instant, cost-effective blockchain-powered payments can be a transformative component of India’s economy, helping bring the many who have limited access to payment services into the fold. We are committed to building our presence in this market with significant investment, and I look forward to expanding our local team with this vision.” As a side note, there is news from Induslnd... IndusInd Bank To Acquire IL&FS’ Brokerage Business https://www.bloombergquint.com/business/2018/06/26/indusind-bank-to-acquire-ilfs-brokerage-business "Private sector lender IndusInd Bank Ltd. today said it is acquiring infrastructure lender IL&FS’ brokerage business for an undisclosed sum." "The city-based lender, which has recently got the final nod for a merger with microlender Bharat Financial Inclusion Ltd., has received the Reserve Bank of India’s go-ahead for acquiring IL&FS Securities Services, it said in a statement." "Incorporated in 2007, the brokerage offers clearing of exchange traded derivatives, depository and custodial services and has over 1,000 broker client accounts, FPIs and FIIs, the statement said, adding that its platform sees three million transactions a day." Also this... India Drafting New Cryptocurrency Regulations After Controversial (and Unfounded) Banking Ban Published 2 hours ago on June 29, 2018 By Sam Bourgi Draft Crypto Bill Finalized "Department of Economic Affairs secretary Subash Chandra Garg has confirmed that a draft cryptocurrency bill will be presented to government officials in the first week of July." “We are fairly close to developing a template that we think is in the best interests of the country,” Garg told the nation’s largest financial media outlet in reference to new crypto regulations. He added: “We’ve actually moved quite a lot [in drafting regulations] in that, what part of the [cryptocurrency] business should be banned, what should be preserved and what not. That kind of detailed work has happened. Now should be in a position to wrap this up in the first fortnight of July.” (note: a "fortnight" is two weeks, in case anyone is unfamiliar with the term)

    What if XRP is security?

    Look. XRP is clearly a banana. The first cross-border banana of value. The SEC will have no issue declaring XRP as a banana. Ripple has done plenty of due diligence speaking with Banana Republic, and they've brought plenty of banana cartels on to their board of directors. I've heard they've even hired a banana as part of their legal representation. I don't think you have to worry any more about it being a security. XRP is clearly a banana.

    Be it a security or not, I think people would probably still use it because it’s about the technology. Nobody else has been able to do instant settlement the way Ripple does it. XRP is revolutionary.

    If XRP can tap into the derivatives smart contracts market, that number will look small in the long term but still unrealistic by end of year. This assumption is still not based on intrinsic value, XRP can manage all this effectively at $120. I’am assuming a 2-15x multiplier because of retail and institutional speculation.

    Of course you make a sensible point....however as a group on XRPchat we live in a different bubble from the average XRP buyer in Japan. We are not really in touch with their mindset and for the most part it was the Koreans and Chinese that were most badly burnt by the Dec crash. Japan does manias differently from how we do them in traditional Western countries and be very careful not to assume they will behave like a Western country. I speak as someone with a Japanese wife. I think Japan might be one of the principle engines that decouples XRP from Bitcoin. (I have a history of being too optimistic ?)

    Also I just think we're running out of sellers. People who bought super early won't sell now having missed out on massive gains. Who the hell sells when the price is super low from previous highs? Newbies. We're fast running out of newbie investors - they left months ago. People who are still holding and bought later (near ATH) have already lost 80%+ of their original investment - they would be nuts to sell now (and they know it, that's why they're holding): the up-side is much bigger than the downside at this point, unless you think XRP is actually dead in the water. Ripple are looking for 49 more employees as I write this....they'll go from 190 employees in February to 225 in April to circa 275 employees later this year....they're donating millions to many charities, xRapid is not even properly live yet, one bank will go live with xRapid before the end of the year (IMO, that will convert to XRP being at least 80c to 90c)...there's just way way way too much upside for current holders to sell now at a huge loss. What we have now is classic fear, uncertainty and doubt because the price is low. It's absolutely the wrong time to sell, though people will think "I need to stop the bleeding". Talk about an oversold asset. Nobody is bleeding until they sell. I'm at a 42% loss, and I'm relaxed. The most productive thing I can do is focus on the future and do nothing with my XRP right now.

    Currently, I'm watching BTC (4hr and 1 day) Ichimoku cloud on double settings (20, 60, 120, 30) if you want to follow along. If price can break and hold above the 4hr cloud, then the 1 day cloud targets are in play. Until then, battle is on the 4hr. Last 2 attempts to break the 4hr cloud (since the May peak) have failed miserably. Watch for signs of this happening again. We stabbed into the cloud on higher volume than our last failed attempts though, a small positive sign. And if we break out on the 4hr, here would be the daily targets

    I agree. The only thing stopping people from taking a profit is that they want more profit. The lambo meme is actually dangerous and makes people hold on for too long. I'm glad I sold in late January this year. I've bought back in again and am still well in profit overall. Take profits people....take the damned profits when they are there. You can use your profits to buy back in again, but you have your original investment back.

    Yes, I did that once or twice whilst trading. Overall my trades down from the ATH worked quite well, but to do it now at such a low price and with a likely hard floor in place would be equivalently mad to me changing my name to Raymond the Chicken Inquistor, wearing a potted rubber plant on my head as hat and dying my eyebrows bright purple, whist attempting pierce my nose using a garden fork. Totally and utterly barking mad. Wack job, crazy, nuts.

    I think ElvisLives was introducing a sensible question worth reflecting on. Its a pity that the responses were so childish. Power corrupts but not always. Some very rich people can misuse their money others become benefactors. There is an unusually large number of sociopaths in politics and boardrooms and we usually we do not know the way they will turn until after it has happened. On the plus side the owners of Ripple have shown themselves to have social consciences and have a willingness to use their excess money to promote some good causes. Wealthy people like Bill Gates like to use their money to do good, other wealthy men think wealth gives them a right to walk up to pretty women and force them to serve their sexual fantasies.

    BTC has very weakly broken through resistance that has been in play since the ATH, (diagonal line)which is great to see. we'll see if it can continue to rise a bit. getting up over 6500 would be good, and hopefully 6500 would then provide support for the mark up phase. The horizontal line in the image is the low since the ATH, we wanted to break under that in order for the spring to form. Historical reference people are comparing this to is EBAY 2008/2009:

    Personally I think XRP has bottomed out at just under 43c (as of yesterday). ETFs coming into the news again when the SEC is a lot more crypto friendly....well if ETFs are accepted, then they will be the antidote to Futures. ETFs will be the gateway into crypto for institutional investors. I think this bump in price is based on the ETF rumour. I hope nobody sold recently.

    If correct, this is fantastic news - a Crypto Regulation Bill before the Indian Government within a fortnight. Hopefully, more Countries will follow suit soon. Then (IMO) we can sit back and watch XRP fly.

    I recall several stating "July 18th". However, I remember reading somebody who sounded rather intelligent (will not for the life of me be able to remember where I read this), stating that it was mistaken for the fact that the date was set for July '18 (July 2018).... I like turtles!

    Ripple / Wordpress Plugin?

    Coil are working on integrating ILP into web browsers. But they are making it currency/ledger agnostic. If you wanted to make a WP plugin XRP based, then have a chat with Ripple. xVia can use XRP and I don't think it has the high licensing cost of xRapid. I don't know the tech specifics though so I can't help with any of that. Edit: sorry, I need to correct my comment - Coil are working on using XRP in web monetisation. Some of the Coil/Ripple team are members of the W3C working group which is integrating ILP into browsers.
