  1. This is great stuff, still reading!! This should... This process is very similar to the process I was thinking about for creating Options on XRPL but without needing a non-XRPL smart contract platform. I think this is sort of the main point, which would take advantage of XRPL's natural Auto-Bridging and Pathfinding features and one would think bring more Utility Value to both XRPL and Flare networks, because Flare network does not have to preform the Pathfinding function that XRPL already does. This enables IOUs to be as Trustless as XRP on the XRPL... that is a big f*ing deal! Re some old conversations around Fungibility of IOUs on XRPL from different issuers.... I think this is a solution to that and this means that the Trustline network graph and topology internal to XRPL (one of many functionalities that makes it so much better than bitcoind) can begin to grow a denser set of connections for many denominations of value to move around XRPL all trustlessly. The catch, is that those Assets must be escrowed on Flare network.

  2. I think this is wonderful news. Like that using the ODL product, Ripple has finally found a way how to fully unleash the power of their 45B XRPs. The effect can only be positive on ODL use and XRP usefulness. Long term definitely very positive on XRP price and short term I am not so sure how it will be played out, but my guess is that once this line of credit product is available, we will start to see the price steadily going up. Ripple has a team of devoted and motivated professionals of various crafts and this is what makes the company a true and only winner.

  5. Your best hope is a BTC bull run. No utility necessary, easy profits. Thats my hope anyway. If that doesn’t happen, it’s the long haul waiting on utility.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Bitcoin is breaking above the Down Trend Line it has been in since August 17th need a close above $10,950 it looks like to close above the downtrend. The price is breaking up through the Bollinger Bands now. Is this the move? Maybe it would need I'd day at least 3 big green days to complete the breakout of the slump it has been in. Hash Rate is at an All time High.

  7. ^ This Why? Because banks and Custody firms already know that business model and the various monetization strategies that can be deployed based upon the core service offering of Custody. How to you strategically out preform an incumbent industry? First create a new one, Crypto. Second take advantage of the feature set the new tool/industry can do that the old couldn't. I find it amusing that so mush buzz has been built around "trustless" distributed/Blockchain stuff. I'm amused because I see that as, everyone getting excited for the most simple thing the new tool can do. Also, because that is really the only feature of BTC, and the capital gains of BTC have paid for most of the self serving excitement. So, what might PolySign be doing that other Custody offerings either Cant do, or Cant think of WHY anybody would want that? This thinking immediately made me thinking about CL's past with Lendingclub. In my How xPool, I explained How & Why Ripple would want to do loans in the form of an Loc. I also explained how the exact same math used by Crowd Lending services like Lending Club could be used natively on XRPL. So, I'd not be overly surprised if we do not learn of PolySign's full offering and feature set, till the other plain vanilla Custody services are live and in the marketplace. Then, Bam, PolySign can do that easy security stuff (maybe better, maybe not) + offer better XRP asset management tools fully integrated across XRPL + multiple networks/exchanges/etc that enable functionality, underlying service offerings that are both valuable and very hard for Custody competitors to mimic. If Ripple's LoC borrowers are Banks who are wholesale borrowing XRP, and Retailing it to their SME corp consumers, then they will need tools to manage that process... like maybe an XRP LoC from Ripple + some Custody and asset management from PolySign. 😁🤔😉

  9. Breakout confirmed with a nice follow through candle. Don't expect much more upside today because BTC pierced the upper Bollinger Band and the RSI is overbought on the hourly. Sideways movement until we hit the MA20 on the hourly and then next leg up. I have a target of at least $12k on this break out, timing still very favorable on the daily cycle.

  13. Can this be considered to be an alternative to Swift's nostro-vostro accounts? Imagine having one "nostro-vostro" account that supports multiple currencies and doesn't need prefunding. The account starts with a zero balance and is able to send and receive money through ODL. The delta between debit and credit operations will result in a positive or negative balance. Positive balances will be paid out to the customers, negative ones will need funding on a daily/weekly/monthly base.

  14. Ripple has changed their targeted customer base strategy within the last few years. As well as a lot of this heavily relies on knowing the banking structure in the US, which makes it challenging to following. It seems like Ripple didn't even fully understand this banking environment until recently. Ripple previously targeted selling their products and services directly to larger banks and financial institutions, which was foolish. They wasted time and money doing this. The larger banks and financial institutions already have their own competing products against Ripple's RippleNet, which they have a lot of control and profitability over. So larger banks/institutions rejected Ripple's offers for them to pay Ripple to replace their existing solutions that they control and generate high profits from. This was a lose lose situation for the larger banks. The real opportunity is for Ripple to sell their services to smaller banks, to compete against the larger banks that offer financial processing services (like Fiserv, Bankers' Banks, etc.). Smaller banks don't have the internal resources or IT tools to directly process financial payments to other financial institutions, so they pay larger banks to process the transactions on behalf of them. Think about when you go to a small local bank or credit union. When you request to transfer money (ACH and wires) from that bank/credit union to another institution, the smaller bank is actually paying to outsource the financial processing transaction tasks to a larger bank, like Fiserv. Fiserv in return charges a high fee to the smaller local bank to complete processing these transactions, cutting into the smaller bank's profits and increasing costs to you. So Ripple's opportunity comes in for them to offer this service to smaller financial institutions, more efficiently and lower cost as compared to larger banks like Fiserv. Larger banks charge even higher fees for transacting payments internationally as compared to domestically, based on processing international transactions being notoriously difficult and inefficient. Ripple has already been offering their customers to use XRP on RippleNet for international transactions, but it was a pain for the customers to acquire XRP to use within RippleNet. So it looks like this line of credit allows their customers to have a streamlined and easy way to pay and use XRP for international transactions, all within RippleNet. When Chris Larson is complaining about SEC regulations and moving headquarters to another country, it is most likely partially related to existing regulations hurting them with directly selling lines of credit for XRP within RippleNet to their customers.

  17. https://flr.finance/#Home The platform is still being built on the Coston TestNet. The short paper and other documentations will be available later on, as well as the information about their team on their website. Hugo Philion @HugoPhilion (CEO of Flare Network) talked with their team and liked the idea. Below you can see Flare Network tweet regarding Flare Finance: Also Hugo from Flare Network yesterday: Flare Finance target market is XRP (and other crypto) holders seeking to diversify access to financial products that become possible thanks to the Flare Network Once the platform is fully operational, and of course after Flare Network snapshot, XRP holders will be able to benefit from the wide array of solutions developed by Flare Finance. Their products include: Decentralized Swaps and Margin Trading Asset-Backed Loans Yield Farming fUSD Stable Coin Yield Mining Insurance Here the tokens namely: FlareX - Decentralized Margin/Spot and Swaps Exch YieldFin - Dec. Yield Farming Platform FlareMutual - Dec. Flare Insurance Provider FlareLoans - Dec. Asset Backed Loans FlareUSD - Flare Network Stable Currency FlareLink - In-Browser Mining and DApp Browser I am regularly in talks with their founders to find out more about their Dapp. You can contact them in the links below, they are very open to discussion. Flare Network exists to make smart contracts possible between the XRPL and the EVM. But it needs developers to create Dapps on the Coston TestNet, developed specifically by Flare Network, in order to see this new utility through smart contracts. Flare Finance is currently running a giveaway on twitter And as clarification for those who are confused (winners will obtain 100 XRP, which will grant them 100 Spark if held until the 12th December): Some additional general things about Flare Finance: GitHub Twitter Discord Telegram

  19. Nope, When you pick a fight, you pick a fight with the biggest around, SWIFT! In that fight your small, but skilled, You whack him one in the chin, MGI, a light stun. Then you quickly bounce around the crowd, looking for your seconds, it gets foggy, you threaten his seconds and the spoilers step in, VISA, PAYPAL. Now your fighting three at once! You untie your right arm, there's a tatt on it, XRP! LOC! Now there is madness, the seconds are fighting each other, the crowd is jostling in, it looks like an all-in. A trumpet sounds, you holler "To Me All! Your allegiances are waned! To Me All! To Me XRP ODL!! The crowd roars and surges forward............... to be continued.. Just Like Brad said in 2018, 3 to 5 years!

    Yes definitely one drag for cred is the lack of an app or even a high quality web interface. I’ve always disliked the cred interface it feels extremely cheap / overly simplistic (probably because it is), but I trust in the team and I like the product so it doesn’t matter much to me. For broader use they will absolutely need a polished interface and a high quality app.

  23. Honestly, I don't see a clear direction about what Ripple want to do next ? What kind of customers they gonna serve ? Bank or SME ? What market ? Big or small payment? The purpose of ODL now is for what with that low volume ? What kind of investment that Xpring doing (now RippleX) ? So far so good ? Maybe that's just me. But will appreciate if someone smarter than me can explain more about what Ripple doing good in the past 2 years ? Thanks

  26. I don't think Chris Larsen knows what influences the price any better than most of the people on this forum. At best it's an educated guess. Even though each buy order is matched with a sell order, I have to think that increased use and improved liquidity are a plus for XRP's price.

  27. True. And yet the white knight brigade keep leaping in with a firehouse to cool down any discussion that might say anything good about the prospects of XRP. (Not speaking to this discussion... just a general observation). Seems overkill to me.

    Just wanted to post an update regarding current interest rates. They really boosted all stable / fiat rates big time in the last few days. The UPUSD (which I've been using exclusively for months) is at a whopping 13%! You can eek out another .5% or so if you go for daily compound interest, but personally I use simple interest to maintain monthly payouts. Completely unsustainable rates, but you can lock a 6 month rate in on the 15th and I doubt you'll find a return like that elsewhere so easily. These should come right back down in the next 30-60 days. (premium rates with 10k LBA held) UPUSD 13% UPEUR 11% USDT 12% USDC 12% DAI 12% TUSD 12% USD 12% EUR 10%

  30. Hello and welcome. Honest opinion - Ignore all predictions! If you believe Ripple/XRP will gain adoption 5, 10 or 20 years into the future, buy and hold. Short term, not a clue. Your guess is as good as anyone’s

  31. More of the same for Bitcoin's price. Still in the same range, the Bollinger Bands Continue to Tighten, Bitcoin's Hash Rate is at the 12th highest ever and Bitcoin spent another day above $10k. The waiting continues. @Quadripple Thanks. As far as I can tell with XRP the chart really doesn't tell much. I really just waiting for XRP to get dragged along in Bitcoin's next bull run. Charting the Course of XRP - is a popular thread that addresses XRP charting it. Personally I don't think XRP has established any patterns of it's own independent of Bitcoin.

  33. It has nothing to do with "first mover advantage". Google didn't have first mover advantage, they were not the first service/company to offer search functionality. It is also not THE info/item/asset... but it is the identification of the Route through the Network which is the functionality that becomes so valuable once monetized. Examples : Google Search finds the best path/route through the internet to find you the info that you want. They monetize this via Ads, so they place the ads along the path/route and get paid to do so by those who want to be along the path. Railroad companies invested massive capital expenditures to build out the railroad network They monetize this via selling train car rides along the path/route and get paid to do so by those who want be at the destination. Interstate Highway system (US) invested massive capital expenditures to build out the road network. They monetize this via collecting gas taxes from those who wish to burn gas to get through the road network to their destination Amazon invested massive capital expenditures to build out a logistics network to move anything you could want. They monetize this via TX fee. Identifying and selling access to a path/route through the network to retailers who want to route their goods to the destination. Big Money Center Banks invested massive capital in N/V accounts, and built a Correspondent network to move money where you want. They monetize this via a TX fee. Identifying and selling access to a path/route through the network to smaller banks (who are Retailers) who want to route their money to the destination. Comcast invested massive capital ... (F comcast) Pay your monthly bill, so they will route your packets of data I could go on, but hopefully that gets the point across. Ripple has invested massive capital expenditures to build out RIppleNet and seed the creation of an IoV. They monetize this (right now) via selling access to the network both through licensing fees to Retailer Banks who want to route their money through network. They monetize this (right now) via selling access and improved Routing/Pathfinding in the network, aka ODL using XRP which is exactly the same as selling a seat to move through a railroad network They will monetize - I believe - (in the future) via loaning out XRP on very short time frames, like for a few ledger closes. This will enable Ripple to both lower the cost of moving Value/XRP through the network & allow Ripple to begin charging for the second of the two functions which XRP serves with in RippleNet & IoV A TX fee, like a postage stamp on a envelope The letter, like a check/value in the envelope --- All that was said to emphasize the point that monetizing the Routing/Pathfinding function is very important. Thus when I look at Bitcoind vs Rippled there is no comparison. Bitcoind dosent have a Pathinding function, because it cant. There is nothing to route, there is not a multitude of routs/paths that a bitcoin can travel down. The only path is from Allice to Bob, thats it. Rippled however not only has a multitude of routes/paths that any number of denominations of Value can travel down... but it also Does have a Pathfinding function built natively right into XRPL. The shortest path goes through XRP, which is like an Ad/seat ticket/gas tax/access fee or TX fee that is collected for identifying and providing the shortest and cheapest Path/Route through the network.
