  1. Bitcoin has stayed above $10k for two days now. The hashrate is high and it has broken out of the immediate down trend it has been in.

  3. No there is nothing wrong with this investment. Bitcoin has halved, expect all crypto to go on a speculative run based on past experiences. Xrp is one of the oldest and most accepted cryptos ever, it has had one of the highest market caps consistently. There is a company based in silicone valley working for you and every xrp holder. The founders new what was wrong with proof of work bitcoin and developed a transformative technology. Every day there is positive news about ripple and xrp. If you have held the last two years you owe it to yourself to keep holding. The fabric of a new finan

  4. @Riccardo8891 if you were to set a slider for that ultimate price value then maybe don’t hard code it... allow user to enter the value. Or use a log scale. Because frankly there will be a LOT more people entering $1 to $50 than there will be people using $10,000.

    For anyone interested I received an email from Cred regarding the upcoming spark network token drop / fork. I was actually just thinking about this scenario, but I'm glad they provided some clarification, though it's rather short term notice because user must setup a new program by Sept 14th (Monday) to take advantage of a 5% rate, which I assume will be the premium rate since currently they are offering 2%/3% for XRP.

  6. Bitcoin is riding just under the short term down trend line. On a positive note Bitcoin spent the entire day yesterday above $10k.

  7. @LetHerRip you do know it's your forum 5 year anniversary *today*? Congratulations, how someone into xrp since 2015 hasn't made money, and has become so bitter is utterly beyond me. You must be the only investor from 2015 that hasn't benefitted lol

  10. Hi all, I am a software engineer as well as being a passionate and early adopter of XRP. Please follow this link to a free online XRP Profit Calculator: XRP Profit Calculator I would appreciate feedback, new ideas to implement and suggestions on how to make this worth a while to the XRP community. Thank You All.

    I found this site earlier today. Has anyone heard of this company or know any more about it? Documentation seems to mention only other digital assets: buy and sell Quantum Coin or Bitcoin (herein “Bitcoin” or “cryptocurrency”). transfer cryptocurrency and fiat currency to other Members and to non-members who must become Members prior to withdrawing such cryptocurrency or fiat money. exchange FIAT for various currencies. open IBAN bank accounts. order Mastercard prepaid debit cards. The platform might offer its users to trade precious metals including gold,

  13. Yeah, it was very interesting - IIRC the drop was a few days before BG's tweet. And it felt like an afterthought on their part. Which makes sense, their current focus then wasn't on impressing the HODL unwashed masses. - I've been watching this daily for over a year now, I'm not worried a bit. There is just no way in hell anyone dealing with an unproven new monetary transaction handling system would just flip a switch and expose themselves to catastrophic financial losses. You scale up in phases - you remediate discovered issues, re-test, then bump up the load at the next phase. Rins

  14. @Dogowner5 - Absolutely correct. I too have been posting the occasional volume chart ( xrp->mxn @ Bitso ). I concur the xrp volume is not only unchanging, it's acting clamped: BY THE XRP VOLUME itself, and not by total trade values. which I find interesting in itself... This long road trip of ODL's deployment is vastly complex, across multiple languages and timezones, befuddled regulators, with nervous project managers and stakeholders risking their jobs on any screwing up. I can only imagine the regular morning scrum meetings ! My suspicion here is there has been stress tes

  15. ETH had a 5x run Feb 2017 to March 2017 XRP had a 60x run March to May 2017 NEO had a 10x run March to May 2017 The old alts are recovering the new DeFi coins are the flavor of the month, but I'm sure some will break though and be here to stay. The ALT runs are obviously an indication of renewed interest and investment.

  16. Some incremental progress since my last post. Getting into the danger zone. Make or break for short term ETH (and the rest) based on what it does in this potential resistance area.

  18. @Dogowner5 I still think there will be a ‘crypto reset’ at some point, or a ‘great cleansing’. After that, value from utility. Not sure what that will entail or what will trigger it, but I’m guessing around four/five years from now. I’ll be keeping some pocket money aside, just in case that happens.

  19. This^ Perfect summation of the XRP market. Utility is perhaps coming, if it does at scale, then a new price dynamic will apply. Until then... the above.

  21. Depends what you mean by "anytime soon". If bitcoin goes past 20k USD I have a reasonable expectation that a new cohort of retail investors will chug money into $XRP within 3-6 months after the fact based on historical precedent. I also have an expectation that Bitcoin will go to 100k in our current cycle. It follows that $XRP is going to $3.00 and a lot higher. In another thread that was deleted I carefully outlined when bitcoin would hit 20k. Sometime between now and June 2021. So $XRP would probably follow in price 3-4 months after. I would expect $2-3.00 depending on the mania at the time.

  22. Guys, According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), here is a list of all the patents owned by Ripple Labs, Inc., a few of which have been recently published this year (2020). The company has added quite a bit of intellectual property since I first started following the company back in May of 2017. 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

  23. Well, I don't know if I "know better" - but, yeah, some of the first things that came to mind when I was reading consensus whitepapers way back when was applying one-time-pad / frequency hopping schemes to them... The things that some groups have patented in the last few years are shit that'd I'd toss out as "obvious" based upon the prior art, much of it going back nearly a hundred years... but, ya know, lawyers wanna lawyer. (And 15 year olds think everything is "novel.") One of the most underappreciated things Bob Way ever said here was re: the need to patent things not necessarily to

    Aw crap. Time to die and live again then. I find the badge thing is a distraction and annoyance. It’s a target for the idiots that think these sorts of things are significant. Thanks. But seriously thinking of fixing that.

  28. I agree with your logic. But I do wish this forum would resolve to stop using derogatory terms for people and stop attacking the person rather than the argument. This post is coming from the fact that I feel remorse because I just a few minutes ago posted something that added nothing to the forum and was an insult to a person. I try hard not to descend into personal attacks and the fact that I did (and it was very mild compared to many posts on here daily) shows that it’s becoming endemic here to bicker rather than debate. No doubt a reflection of the parlous state of XRP and Crypt

  32. I do not doubt that Ripple/XRP will be a success on some level. They are very early, rich and run by a team of that is well connected and focussed on a tsk that they are solving. The team include some of the brightest brains in the world of finance and blockchain. The level of that success will remain unknown of many months or years, and no one can more than guess at the value XRP will hit in the next bull run. So yes I am bullish about XRP. The odl transactions were recorded and published somewhere was recorded

  33. We have no accurate way to track ODL volume. Without Ripple releasing this information we are guessing at best.

  35. I don't buy this amount circulating argument. An investment of $10,000 buys you 40 thousand XRP but only one BTC. The price is pushed up by the investment demand. At the moment the money is going into BTC faster than it is going into XRP. The expectation is that later in the cycle money will go into XRP faster than into BTC, but nobody know the future so it is a guess.

  36. I agree with your tenet that we all here are biased. but I disagree with your understanding of why many speak up. I’ve seen the view many times, and I think that many here hold it... that somehow the people talking it up believe that will affect the price. Or in some way support the asset. I disagree completely with that ‘obvious’ motive. I know when I was first enthusiastic about XRP and ‘evangelical’ about it, the reason was not even remotely connected with price or ‘supporting’ the asset. It was because I felt it would be selfish to be one of the few that knew about

    ODL Dead? Failed Project?

    What I wrote is the fact. People invested based on his statments. You can make a joke out of it as much as you want. Lets assume that he said banks wont be using xrapid in next 4 years and that they will buy shares in MoneyGram so they can show the world how good xrapid is. Now tell me what would to price?? Would you buy more, sell, or just keep holding because it is the same crap being 60% or 80% in red. Some people use dot-connecting to invest, some listen to CEO what he has to say. I was in second group.

  38. I mean when SBI's OTC desk starts FX trading using XRP with Korean banks and other FI's, it's going to be large volume trading, like millions of dollars per trade. SBI is setting up XRP for remittance solutions now, I don't know why they wouldn't eventually move into FX using XRP to settle CBDC swaps, etc. They've also been pushing their crypto/XRP 'trust' fund to investors, as mentioned by mandelbaum. Just another avenue for SBI to get XRP out to the masses.

  39. The SBI OTC desk is going to suck up plenty of XRP supply in order to service its big clients. You're not on an OTC desk unless you're moving Donald-Trump-huuuuuge volume. FX retail trading wasn't even a thing until 1996, it was only big banks and FI's that needed to trade and hedge with massive amounts of fiat currency. Idk if it's just stupid luck or a good time to be alive but that retail investors even had the opportunity to get into XRP for pennies on the dollar BEFORE FI's caught wind is almost ass-backwards. Having XRP as a proxy to pre-IPO Ripple stock is another bizzaro sit
