    So, I said on multiple occasions that the price surge (that happened in a very timely manner, during precise hours, following a pattern each day) was due to a test. Many people said I was wrong, that it was only speculation over the upcoming xRapid release. I tried times and times again to find the press release again, but I had deleted my history. I only remembered a few words "five continuous hours"; "R3"; "US equity markets". After rewatching the IMF Spring Meeting, streamed yesterday, I noticed Christine Lagarde talked about DLT being able to support the daily trading volume of the US equity market. I remembered the phrasing used in October, and that it could be correlated to the September pump to 0.8$. Here is the time where Christine Lagarde mentionned the test: I then searched on Google for The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation + US Equity Markets, in October 2018 and I found it again. Here is the press release, I saw in October, describing the test. http://www.dtcc.com/news/2018/october/16/dtcc-unveils-groundbreaking-study-on-dlt

    Hi there, yesterday I closed my "play stash"-positions on eToro and sold at 0.357 - Reward: ~200 Bucks. Only a few minutes later ETH collapsed followed by BTC, XRP and others later on... Why did I sell: I had confidence in the TA of botje11 who expected that "correction" - once again he was right. On telegram he warned a few hours before and he presented three possible scenarios plus the conditions that made the respective scenario likely. I was warned. And then ... as I sat on my couch another twitter message: Its most likely event will occur within the next few hours, condition by condition were met ... the correction must be made within the next few hours ... I sold... My advertisement for botje11 For those who are interested in TA, who do not want to be surprised anymore, who want to understand the mechanisms in this stupid market, I really recommend to follow botje11 on tradingview. He tries to be quite objective, shows scenarios and which are likely to be fulfilled. The nice thing about it: He also calls the conditions, what must happen, so that a, b or c could/should occurs. Nor is it a pity to reject his approaches when things change and reevaluate. Also nice: His training charts in which he explains patterns, forms and connections, for me: so understandable that I as a layman can even understand that. Look at his contributions, I think they are worth reading, you learn a lot and above all: they also help that you are no longer surprised by market movements (you expect them). https://www.tradingview.com/u/botje11/ Important and urgent messages are more spread via telegram: https://t.me/botje11 Why do I advertise him? I think he deserves millions of likes at TV because he is one of the best and most objective analysts for our crypto market. That is why I promote him Best regards xSodax

    The price spiked to 76-80 cents on september 21 2018. The daily volume reached 4 Billion from 5-600 million the days before. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/historical-data/?start=20180919&end=20180924 Suzie from Esoteric trading solutions made a video on this subject back in december. Speculative, but interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-dx5qy9AXc The DTCC part begins at around 8:40 minutes.

    https://www.investinblockchain.com/ripple-gain-exposure-europe-minister-luxembourg-cooperation/ “Luxembourg’s Minister of Finance, Pierre Gramegna, has hinted that Luxembourg will soon receive Ripple’s exposure.” Luxembourg represents the financial power in Europe. The announcement of future collaboration with Ripple is very relevant.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Price has been under assault all day and has been holding up shockingly well. It seems the floor has been set at $5k. Attached is the one minute chart. Last night at about 1/4 to midnight Eastern US time or 3:44am local time for the exchange (I was watching) someone dumped 2,795 bitcoins in what appears to be one trade dropping the price $200. As far as volume goes, this volume is 10x the volume of any other minute today. Litecoin is getting the worst of it with the price even dropping the 100 Day EMA below the 200 Day EMA (which had previously moved above hours before). If i hadn't already bought into Litecoin at lower prices I'd be picking some up now. Wonder if this has anything to do with Bittrex halting all trading for NY residents starting at close of business today? Anyway, I think we might have an equal reversal tomorrow based on the price action.

    Facebook Coin. A threat to XRP?

    FYI, in Europe AND the USA there is a LOT of discussion about this topic, and a growing awareness about what kind of society we are heading. Maybe you would happily use a wallet that is connected to your location, your contacts, and your information stream that is controlled by algorithms that have access to all this private data. Most people I know would say thanks, but no. But they don't even have to: regulators will say no. That's the reason of their existence: protect citizens from excessive abusive monopolistic power. You may think this is all a joke, and Zuckerberg can make us bend over and do whatever he and his advertisers have in mind with us, but I can assure you those days are over.

    Ah so KYC and AML is suddenly thrown out of the window? One happy Facebook family, problem solved? And no problem that Facebook does not only have access to all our personal details, our contacts, our messages, our surfing history, but now also to all our payments? Interesting!

    I'm up in the air... on the one hand, there's no direct proof. But on the other hand there's this: R3 integrated with ILP for their Corda Settler, ILP is purpose-built for the XRP use case, DTCC is testing Corda Settler as a future-proof settlement tool, DTCC has a former CEO on Ripple's advisory board, the only digital currency capable of these speeds and throughput is XRP, and DTCC's blockchain tests coincided exactly with XRP decoupling from all other crypto, which otherwise only happened during the 2017 EOY bullrun. But that's not the point of this post. The point of this post is this: If the rise was truly a result of DTCC testing, then the test was a proof-of-concept that Corda and ILP can handle peak transaction volume, NOT peak liquidity. That means transaction speed, not transaction size. They would have been buying and selling XRP in the smallest possible amounts to reduce financial risk, not average trade sizes that would dry up existing liquidity. So that $0.25 to $0.50 would have been on the back of a minimum-viable-product. Imagine the maximum-viable-product.

    Thanks! Yes it looks good indeed. That USD value is lacking behind, but BTC is causing this. Patience is what we need, although after such a long bear market can’t wait for the green weeks

    For a long period of time the total XRP trade volume was in the 100kk to 300kk USD. The real XRP volume has at least doubled this month. It is sad there is no historic in the xrp charts, the best I can do is to make a comparison between the last 30 days to the last 7 days. Let's see the ratio: 7 / 30 = 23% Last 30 days volume: Last 7 days volume: 3,815,554,286 / 10,668,767,949 = 35% So, yes, the last 7 days had a bigger volume. I can't be more accurate than this considering the lack of data...

    The need for market making is directly related to the need to send payments. So if I was looking to make markets, I'll follow every payment non-XRP-to-XRP payment and see where they are coming from and going too. Then I'd try to jump in the middle and turn a small profit on each. Right now, there is little XRP Ledger traffic for non-XRP payments. But I'm hoping to convince people that should change in the near future. Hopefully, that Bitstamp news will help the process along.

    This is what I think will happen next. And many will be caught off guard and miss the initial opportunity to buy back in. I personally fear selling on any pump and dump for fear while i'm out, it rockets to $50 and then I'd be a tad ****** off.....LOL

    is $0.35 the new $0.25?

    We saw this many times before. This behavior is quite normal for XRP. Crypto is still bare speculation and FOMO drives price up. If you are in XRP long term, then you know that this asset has potential to be actually used. I can not say same for 99% of other tokens. I am buying every month new XRP no matter the price. I hope one day I be rewarded, if not it will not be the end of world. Spend only money, you can afford to lose.

    Payment is an agreement to transfer legal ownership of funds. Settlement is completed transfer of legal ownership of funds. Reversal of a payment is legal, subject to the contractual obligations between the transacting parties. Unauthorized reversal of settled funds is theft.

    Ripple advertising?

    This^ - and the fact that people making remittance payments are going to be spreading the word that company X is now much cheaper and faster than the old company Y that everyone was using. Word of mouth among foriegn workers sending money home should not be underestimated in this modern day of whatsapp etc. An easy tagline like "Runs on Ripple" is perfect for anyone saying - "you need one of those ripple people to send your money - I'm saving $x every week - as long as you get one of those ripple ones it'll be cheap". The brand name awareness will help adoption as customers then start asking their local money sending operators "are you using that ripple thing that everyone else has been telling me about?". etc. etc. "Runs on Ripple" works for me - and it tells us that Ripple are signalling that the marathon is now well off the start line by starting to spread awareness much wider (assuming they are in fact funding this advertising).

    Answer: About the patent, Let's talk

    Yes, exactly that. Very good image reference. The goal of the algorithm is to have mostly green orders at the top of both sides of the Combined Order Book. If purple orders execute to provide liquidity for payments, it does XRP and its holders no good at all. If green orders execute to provide liquidity for payments, it makes XRP more liquid for everyone.

    Hm, that's a Coindesk article. Here's the press release from DTCC: http://www.dtcc.com/news/2018/october/16/dtcc-unveils-groundbreaking-study-on-dlt "DTCC commissioned the benchmark study and provided expertise and requirements for Accenture to build functional prototypes of the US equities clearing and settlement system using DLT. During the 19-week study, DTCC and Accenture ran DLT performance tests using commercial DLT platforms offered by Digital Asset (DA platform) and R3 (Corda platform), whose engineers provided support on performance tuning. DTCC’s main objective was to analyze DLT’s ability to process the massive trading volumes of the US equities market, not the capabilities of individual commercial platforms." "What would be the purpose of XRP in this system?" DTCC is testing settlement on DLT. So that's the purpose -- to test if it's capable of handing those transaction volumes. Corda Settler is integrated with ILP. ILP uses XRP to transfer value. I mean, it's no guarantee but it makes a lot of sense.

    I'd think fbookcoin would be looked upon in the same light as any fiat balance held at a bank... and the bank (fbook in this case) would be a potential sale for the xCurrent team at Ripple. Other than business accounts for advertising, I dont have a personal fbook account. I do understand and appreciate what it is and what they do, but for some reason their whole operation intuitively feels like it has past the point of being innovative. Honestly, fbook was not that innovative even when it was new. They are a just another follower, not a leader in the crypto world.

    There is a lot of confusion between blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology. A DLT is simply a decentralized database that is managed by various participants. Blockchain is also a shared database – a log of records – but in this case shared by means of blocks that, as the name indicates, form a chain. The blocks are closed by a type of cryptographic signature called a ‘hash’. XRP uses a DLT. The press release does not say Accenture used the XRPL to perform this benchmark, but the Corda Settler, which is a private DLT or federated DLT.

    Yes, if you look at the link, you can see they created this link themselves for this "online event". https://ripple.com/faster-cheaper-payments/?utm_source=adroll&utm_medium=retargeting&utm_campaign=xr_online_event This link is composed of 2 parts. https://ripple.com/faster-cheaper-payments/ and ?utm_source=adroll&utm_medium=retargeting&utm_campaign=xr_online_event The smaller link would be enough, but they generated a tracking link. Notice the: Source + Medium + Campaign While working in digital marketing I used this tool to create those links: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/ Here is how they made it: The purpose of doing those links is to collect and study statistics from Google Ads for example. They could be launching this campaign through different sources like: Twitter / Facebook / Flyers with QR code (during events) / etc... Then you can see, from Google Ads, which sources was the most successful (which generated the most links for example).

    XRPBTC LONG Chart

    My take out from the experience, is that XRP volatility profile suggests taking off the table whichever amount I'd feel comfortable doing away if XRP keeps racing on. It's a bit like insurance policy money. What I am suggesting is the investor becomes de facto a trader when the investment moves 10X or more from basis cost. Within a trader mindset, taking some money off the table is basic advice that costs only a small % of future returns and can make a huge difference in comfort. For instance one can figure out how one would feel, taking off the original investment so the remainder is "free money".

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    We have been moving sideways/up since the big run up last Week. I'm still expecting another big move (and I'm expecting it soon (less than a week))to bring us back to where bitcoin (and most of the market) was prior to the November breakdown. Thinking we'll end up somewhere in the $6,000's before we quite down again and start a gradual moving up/sideways with major volatility happening when we reach milestones (Moving average crosses and Popular price points, $10k, etc) until we reach the prior all time high, which I suspect happens in November. Litecoin is looking good, as @TheXRPNinja discusses above. Litecoin's 100 Day EMA will Cross the 200 Day EMA later today. We are looking good.
