    Two xrp ledgers

    There aren’t two ledgers. It’s a rumor spread by someone. There is only one XRPL which is the authoritative account of who owns XRP. David was clear about that in tweeter in past few days. Anything else is untrue.

    FUD EVOLVES - Banks won't use XRP - Only one Bank is using XRP and it's small - Big Banks won't use XRP - Only one big bank is using XRP , the rest are just small ones - I Highly doubt the 168 Banks using XRP will grow , SWIFT has the rest in the bag - No way more than 5000 Banks use XRP , I think Ripple has topped out by this point - XRP is destined to fail , it's only a matter of time some new tech comes along and knocks them out of their #1 spot.... I mean hell , they did it to SWIFT right..?

    How low are we going here?

    Crypto is the Wild West of investing. People here try to apply technical analysis to crypto, buying “undervalued”, etc. What is undervalued? My opinion is that almost everything is overvalued because it’s worth 0. If you’ve done your homework, the first thing you did right was buy XRP. We, as investors, have one basis to buy- fundamental use case. Nothing else in crypto applies as you would evaluate a stock. You bought well. .38 is a good entry point. Remember this even if it dives to .2 or less. The entire crypto market is manipulated and controlled. Do not get rattled by the day to day volatility(especially downward). My best advice: 1) Don’t panic sell because it goes down 2) Dont chase other garbage just because it’s going up. It’s being pumped on speculation with no fundamental foundation. The people making it go up are trying to get a following so they can sell at a higher price later and leave the late comers holding the bag 3) only sell if you think XRP fundamentals change to the Downside. Right now it is the only crypto asset that has real use case and momentum on utilization. 4) don’t spend anything u can’t lose. I believe we won’t lose but u also may need to tie up $ for awhile. Xrp will show true value when it’s intended purpose gets realized. Ie. bank and corporate applications. Remember we are here for the ride and not the priority of Ripple. We just get the benefit for being early adopters.

    Two xrp ledgers

    BTC community has been spreading FUD about Ripple for years. They were trying to dissuade investors back when I started in early 2014, claiming that Ripple could freeze accounts, create more XRP, etc. It was discovered back then that a BTC investor had paid someone to disseminate FUD about Ripple/XRP. on the internet It's likely that that is still continuing to this day.

    Two xrp ledgers

    Someone seems to be confusing the XRP-ledger testnet with a secret ledger run by banks and FIs. https://developers.ripple.com/connect-your-rippled-to-the-xrp-test-net.html Now, anyone can develop tools for the XRP-ledger, Ripple is one of the companies developing on top of it. There are theories of someone outside of Ripple planning a large scale use of XRP for something, running a sandbox test environment.

    We only know for certain that no major bank has yet come public with that. That is something else. NDA's and such. Clearly stated in Brad's last interview, along the lines of "we can only comment on clients that allow us to comment".

    Ripple XRP Groupthink

    Here's an old joke for you, since you want to play: There was once a 2nd grader who wanted to quit school. He approached his teacher and told her so, to which she replied "But you are only a second grader, what will you do?" "I'll teach first grade!"

    Ripple XRP Groupthink

    It applies on the whole society, groups everywhere, even your own family is a group with specific ideas. Every group has it’s own rules, taboes, jargon, jokes etc. There’s an evolutionary reason for this human ( and other animals) behaviour, but I won’t go there now. So yes, independent thinking is hard to maintain, but worthwile striving for. This goes for pro-XRP groups as for anti-XRP groups. Hearing both doesn’t garantee independent thinking though, that would be all too simple. Picking of both groups what you feel are logic and reasonable arguments , hopefully mixed with some original thoughts of your own, is the best thing to do imo.

    You missed a big one reason why PoW will be superseded by PoS and Consensus models. I just wrote this on a thread that is running concurrently with yours. I think it is an important point Who funds BTC and what are their motives? Is it the whales and is the biggest motive to increase price rather than provide services to the BTC ecosystem. What interest do the BTC whales really have in the BTC ecosystem, other than keeping it afloat long enough to withdraw their earnings? Ripple have a long term interest in XCurrent and the ILP and Ripplenet.

    This seems like a huge deal. 80 countries is a lot. let me put my tinfoin hat on. lets say you test run a bank half the tx's you run through xrapid, half use existing system. To prove there is a 60%+ savings back then the price was 0.25 cents turn on xrapid price increases rapidly to 3.95 cents price increase is 3.95 cents - 0.25 = $3.7 increase. full production of one bank would increase the price by double or 3.7 * 2 = $7.40 If one bank would bring the price to $7.40 cents then what would 80 banks do. 7.40 * 80 = $592 If you wanted to be within 1% rounding down to the safe side you would subtract 0.5% this should make your skin crawl 592*0.995 = 589.04 rounding down to the nearest dollar $589

    Cryptos work in tandem for most part. Is XRP price action correlated to BTC? For those who feel so please ponder over the following cycle analysis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tfts2qHGle0

    I have been blown away by the community for Ripple and XRP and most of the people involved with it as fans/supporters. In all my years of Investing, outside of a couple active FIRE message boards. I have never come across a group of people that can discuss plans and details and pros and cons of each other's ideas with the level of clarity and attention to detail presented in many posts. Most of us all seem to be relatively long term investors, and are rowing in the same direction. I don't have much time to post, and so I have to lurk, and many discussions get resolved with me not having the time to reply. I am only a little more active on Twitter because it is easy to like and retweet something, or make a short comment. We all want to see Ripple succeed and for xrp to be utilized in hundreds of different ways for the benefit of millions of people and helping move billions to trillions of dollars. The oft mentioned Internet of Value is going to be the catalyst for opening up whole new avenues of growth and profits for companies all over the world. We are the ones helping to build this. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this endeavor at such an early stage. Helping people understand how these crypto currency coins are the future of a new digital asset class. That will have distinction and pride of ownership like people esteem stocks etc. I still cherish the memories of looking at the old stock certificates from my grandfathers accounts from both sides of my family. XRP is a diamond in the rough.

    It's been a rising bottom all year. I don't think it'll go any lower than 28c

    Two xrp ledgers

    Regardless of whether there can be or are two or more ledgers there can only be 100B XRP and the value can only be driven by public trading otherwise you would end up with a corporate stablecoin with no liquidity.

    Then, not for the first time, we must agree to disagree. I respect your willingness to debate. Good luck with your investments.

    The paradox of Proof of Work is it becomes more centralized the longer Bitcoin exists. As the value of a Bitcoin increases the players in the mining business are larger corporate type entities with farms of computers doing nothing but computing. As the coverage of crypto and digital assets becomes more reliable and informed it's only a matter of time until we see a new market leader.

    Ripple XRP Groupthink

    Yes, but it’s also way too simple to say that one is a victim of groupthinking when one agrees with a certain group. So agreeing with 99% of the positive posts on this board still doesn’t make me a “ groupthinker” . Maybe my independent thinking just came to the same conclusions as the majority or general consensus. Contrarian thinking isn’t the same as independent thinking, so fudsters can be the other side of the same medal. It’s the thinking proces that counts, not the outcome per se imho.

    How OTC relates to price

    All the new money coming into BTC goes into paying electricity bills. Most of the money coming into XRP goes towards developing the product. There can only be one winner

    He went from openly shouting his $50/24 hours by December to anyone who would listen. He was open book on how it’d happen to get people interested. Once he built a following, he became another riddler making tons of broad cryptic messages. For some reason, gullible people hang onto everything. He could change his profile picture color and people interpret it as something. At one point he had a full moon as a picture and these desperatos assumed something would happen on the next full moon day, as if Ripple and XRP time around astrology. He’s slipped up over and over. Just search his old Reddit posts and you’ll see he posted in AskMen about how to talk to his crush, talked about his bank not letting him buy crypto with his Visa, etc. He’s successfully trolling a lot of people who are desperate for anything to get them through tough times There is no switch. There are no inside riddlers spending hours and days creating complex riddles for the community. Instead it’s a bunch of trolls seeking attention, pump and dumps, etc to drive hype by leaving broad clues that could literally be tied to any news. Even Bg123 now is desperate after his fails so he clings to gullible CKJ to keep his attention alive. A riddler could post “Better off Alone” and it could hit a million things. If Bank of America is in news they’ll claim that with the “BoA”. If Swift says they won’t partner with Ripple, they’ll interpret it as he knew they wouldn’t partner and do it alone. The list goes on. Use common sense and logic.
