    Q1 2020 ODL report

    I wrote down much of what I've posted here before and tried to make a blog article out of it, but I'm not much good at html formatting and the graphs have come out terrible. I tried to put them into a coil article first, but that looked even worse and I gave up. (For curiosity, I wanted to see how well the web monetization stuff works using coil - no I don't need the $, but I'm curious to see if it works - and no - It doesn't for me at all anyway as I don't use twitter and the xrp community blog needs it). Anyway, here are my findings. https://xrpcommunity.blog/2020-q1-unofficial-xrp

  2. Final message! XRP Chat is where it all begin, so it's fitting that for this avatar, it's where it ends as well. It's been a journey with countless twists and turns, and try as I might, all the details have melded into a chorus of voices of the XRP Community, who, at their core, are all pushing for the same thing: Change. Sometimes I wonder how members of other coin tribes feel about the project they're supporting. Does it inspire them? Do they believe in it past their surface financial goal of 'getting rich' off of it? Because, for XRP, it's more than just a 'good stock pick

  3. Late last year, Xi Jinping gave a speech declaring that blockchain technology presented an important breakthrough on several key areas within China and that the government intended to utilize the technology. Xi Jinping claimed that the development of distributed ledger technology provided a pivotal moment in which it allowed the Chinese state to reform and improve the inefficiencies found within the Chinese financial market. Stating that “It is necessary to explore the application of ‘blockchain’ in people’s daily life, and actively promote the application of blockchain technology in the field

  5. Since 2012, Ripple has been committed to advancing the XRP Ledger as an open, decentralized system for payments. We have worked together with the community to dramatically increase the decentralization, performance, and feature set over the last seven years. Ripple’s vision for the XRP Ledger is for it to continue to provide the best interoperability with Interledger. Key to this vision is for the XRP Ledger to remain best in class in security, performance, and settlement features. We’ve been working on a number of possible features and design changes that could be introduced to the

She provides analysis that is very often unique and insightful and depends on translating Japanese links. The sort of new information that should be discussed on this open forum. My intention is to start a rolling thread of subject matter she is introducing.

First, here's my understanding of Flare, summarised by @jn_r That's what I thought as well after reading the 2 whitepapers. They've used a hybrid model similar to something proposed by Emin Gun Sirer to "help" ETH. Emin is Professor at Cornell and CEO for AVA Labs which is developing Avalanche. Ethereans point-blank refused this idea, considering his suggestion a trojan horse to undermine ETH development roadmap. They were right t

    The Jed Attack

    (1/2) - 22 February 2020 Although never confirmed by Jed McCaleb, the "tacostand" XRP wallet (rEhKZcz5Ndjm9BzZmmKrtvhXPnSWByssDv) is well-known to belong to him. A quick look at the wallet and its transactions (https://bithomp.com/explorer/rEhKZcz5Ndjm9BzZmmKrtvhXPnSWByssDv) and you will quickly notice that Mr McCaleb manages his funds following a very strict routine. Every morning at 08:02 UTC, 1.7M XRP are sent to another wallet. The so-called wallet, activated by Jed, is then "in charge" of selling the XRP. A rigorous routine is

  10. One of the original use cases for the XRP Ledger (since 2012) was using the built-in decentralized exchange to exchange between stablecoins and to exchange stablecoins for XRP. Currently, only stablecoins that have a backer/issuer are supported. We propose adding a collateralized stablecoin feature to the XRP Ledger. The key distinguishing property of this proposal is that the stablecoin is always redeemable for XRP on the ledger from the collateral pool. So, for example, if you hold one unit of a USD stablecoin, you can make on-ledger payments at any time just as if you held $1 worth of

I think that's why people suspect your motives - you didn't once apply any of your supposedly superior analytical skills to the announcement and identify any issues. If you had done that, you would have found lots of red flags to be worried about. Didn't see any of them? Here, let me help you: How does one "lock" liquidity?

  16. Light accounts would allow a limited account to be created without having to pay the 20 XRP reserve. Instead, a 5 XRP reserve would be paid. Light accounts would be limited in their function but they could certainly hold, receive, and send XRP. There are some options around what features a light account would be permitted to access. Light accounts could be permitted to have a single multisigner list or they could be permitted to have a small number of payment channels or escrows. Likely they would not be permitted to have any trust lines or offers. This post is one suggestion for an

  21. Buys and sells of XRP are made with a spread of some basis points. When $1Billion per day is being transferred around the globe using ODL even at 10basis points spread, someone is earning $365million per year just off the fees. This gives xrp an intrinsic value. Even if cars were free (but limited in number), taxi drivers would pay to own them because they can earn money from giving people rides. Market makers will compete for this income and this gives xrp its value. The more xrp that is locked away and not being used for liquidity, the less is available for cross border transfers and the hig

  29. I've uploaded a brief video about why the new Xpring developer platform is such a a big deal and how easy is now to start coding for the XRP Ledger in any language you like, even if you don't know a lot of coding. I can't stress enough how simple this is now. As an example, I developed a small example app, Zerpy (github): an account manager to check your balances, transactions and send XRP to other accounts. It was developed in a day and ~300 lines of code (~200 for the UI and~100 for the rest). I used the new XRP-API, Python and PyQt5 (my first time using it and creating a '"real" UI).

  31. It’s been a long time coming, but I think we are on the cusp of Polysign revealing what they've been up to for the past three years. We got confirmation December of last year that Polysign was in early Beta and would be going live in 2020. Also, it looks like there are design changes in order with respects to the webpage. Most of us know Polysign to be a digital asset custodial service/infrastructure platform as David’s answer to a question he fielded from a student at the University of Texas indicates. Going back a few years, we had our first indication, at the end of 2017, that Ripple w

  32. I tend to agree with you. There's more going on here than what we, as 3rd party on-lookers, are privy to. Like you said, you don't get investors to pony up 200-million dollars via a Series C if they suspect they wouldn't/couldn't see a return on that size of an investment. I think that 1 of 3 things are possible. The 1st is that Ripple is about to make a significant acquisition (most likely). The 2nd is that they are working on a merger between themselves and another entity (my #2 guess). The 3rd and final is that they are possibly being bought-out (least likely). All o

I don't write too often these days, but I have seen enough interesting things over the past few months that I feel it is absolutely time to speak up and share my observations. I could be entirely wrong, and I am NOT a fanboy by any means. I dislike hype in the markets as much as the next person. Before it was nuked, I mentioned in the Zerpening that there are many ways to get to $589/XRP - the dollar can go down, or the utility can go up, or both.

  37. It's very worrying. If ODL isn't cheaper than conventional moneymarkets, then it won't get used. Dropping from 15m a day to 2m was a massive change yesterday and after reading that report last night I immediately sold a chunk of my xrp. I will wait to see if volume comes back before dipping my toes back in. That report raised a huge red flag for me and it's the first time in almost 3 years that I've strongly doubted the xrp experiment. My greatest worry has been that institutions using ripplenet get instant settlement which allows them to change the way they rebalance their accounts and

Please note that all of these patents have not been awarded yet; most are marked "patent pending." Also, the United States is a first-to-file country. When comparing two similar patents, an inventor's "priority date" is considered the date the patent was filed. This

What if PolySign does the Digital Asset custody with a "Poly", aka multi-sig custody offering actually on the XRPL; while SC&T provides the Fiat Custody part? Then the two companies could have a commercial relationship which enables them to both, connect the Fiat : DA custody offerings, while keeping each company exposed to only one regulatory regime (either Fiat, or DA) freeing up PolySign to potentially offer a more international client base their crypto custody services, while SC&T de
