    Did you read that 100+ post thread in the 2 minutes since I pointed you to it? That's my "newbie" objection. We've done this. I showed you where. You don't want to read it, you want to teach us all about it. I'm tired of that ****. Don't be offended I said you're a "newbie" because you don't want to do the work; just do the work. We're already way ahead - but you insist on dragging us back, with this tired "let's have a discussion about this; I really care!" bit... Well, you know, kid, if you really cared so much, you'd go do the reading.

    I mean this with all due respect but to think that JPM Coin is a threat to the Ripple use case for XRP is to essentially misunderstand the structural model of XRP. Why would another bank trust JPM Coin? If another bank makes their own coin, how do they settle between their coin and JPM Coin? Why and how is a stablecoin a threat to a non-fiat backed digital asset? Counter party risk is a real thing and XRP solves that. Stablecoins issued by banks does not. These are two entirely separate use cases.

    Of course we need regulation. Having entities like JP Morgan at the table ensure that we'll get the right kind of regulation. Who do you think JP Morgan and its army of lobbyists are going to coordinate and collaborate with? 1) A select number of nameless and faceless individuals who control the majority of BTC with an interest in working against "the system"? or 2) Ripple and the XRP ecosystem which is comprised of suit wearing professionals who are working towards the creation of a more efficient global financial ecosystem? Regulation is needed. Regulation is coming. The adults are going to win.

    For the correct answer ask a polar bear. I agree, this is good news for the market. @ecent is spot on here. This is just another signal that blockchain is here to stay. This is not a piece of any pie being taken away from Ripple. This is somebody jumping in and joining the party pretty publicly. This however will be more of an internal tool to realize efficiencies in their own settlements as opposed to cross border

    Will anyone actually sell at $50 or less? Or is everyone pretty much going to HODL on until $1,000+?

    Every other coin is stealing a piece of the Ripple pie. PANIC! /s Oh, wait. It's just another silo. And I suppose we can pass a little gratitude on to JPM for legitimizing digital assets. PS. Feel free to panic sell. I'm looking to buy more xrp at 0.24-0.26 usd.

    At the risk of sounding tinfoily... This has nothing to do with bag holders of other coins. If it did, those coins would be mentioned in the tweets. This has to do with a multipronged Soviet-style misinformation campaign that’s been waged against Ripple and XRP for the past month-and-a-half by powerful interests. Look at the posts in this forum and in the trading club. Look at the quantity of negative and dismissive opinions popping up in the last 60 days... in a chat specifically designed for XRP followers. Pay attention to the sharply negative titles of posts that are otherwise merely “asking questions” about XRP and sealioning. Posters who then take controversial opinions to draw out argument, lengthening the topic and maintaining its position at the top of the forum for days at a time. Look at the tectonic shift in r/cryptocurrency over the past few months. XRP had finally gained traction and acceptance there over the past year. People supported it. Suddenly? Multiple highly-upvoted spurious posts critical of XRP and packed with anti-Ripple comments that lack sound factual basis. Some of this activity is organic. Rest assured, a grand majority is not. What this says to me, louder than any other voice, is that there are people who want you to sell. They don’t have a coin to peddle. They want you to sell your XRP. Because their bosses want to buy it. Period. Get jazzed, because this is the best news you’ve gotten in a very long time.

    Interesting. I'm really impressed that nobody here questioned the starting cash-out price. you know the HODL'ers now are all that remain. It sort of gives me goosebumps to think about what a 2019 bull run could do.

    Literally 180 degrees wrong. The article only makes the point that Ripples products are not using ILP. What some twitter user says afterwards is just that - personal opinion.

    I'm really happy to share my first post at the XRP Community Blog with XRP Chat. It's my first attempt at blogging so I would appreciate some honest feedback. I try to highlight the use case of XRP for non-profits and how they will be able to benefit from the IoV. Here´s a small extract showing the main idea of the blog: 3D printing and XRP are two state-of-the-art technologies that share common denominators like speed, scalability and the potential to change the world by disrupting traditional methods in home-building and cross-border payments respectively. And here´s the link: https://xrpcommunity.blog/3d-printed-homes-and-the-xrp-tip-bot-the-ultimate-techforgood/ Thank you!

    Version 1.2.0 also lowers the threshold for network participants involved in signing transactions. The MultiSignReserve amendment allows owners of signer lists for authorization method Multisign to participate with a reserve of just 5 XRP, down from the previous 15–50 XRP. https://www.coindesk.com/latest-xrp-ledger-release-boosts-censorship-resistance-and-more

    No Commercial bank or Stablecoin will ever be able to maintain a "first mover advantage" over Central Bank issued CBDC. There is a difference between... "money in the bank", aka bank liabilities... and "cash in hand", aka Central Bank liabilities. Going digital or crypto or blockchain, will not change the underlying facts about which balance sheet / ledger that things are accounted for on. Unless I'm on JPM's investment committee, I see nothing to worry about here. They may simply burn up some capital to learn something, so others wont have to pay to learn that lesson.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    This is the most erotic thing you will see this Valentine's Day. The weekly chart on Bitcoin. After the last bull run it took 24 weeks before the 50 week EMA crossed the 100 week EMA to the upside! We are one or two weeks away from that happening. All wee need is one big, green candle!!!

    The Iranian rial becomes the 44th fiat currency to be tradable with XRP. You can view a detailed list of all exchanges and currencies trading XRP/fiat, here at XRParcade. You can find more information about Nobitex here. https://xrparcade.com/news/xrp-gets-its-first-pair-to-the-iranian-rial-irr/ Nobitex: http://iran.ahk.de/fileadmin/ahk_iran/Blockchain/Nobitex.pdf I think this might be controversial because this challenges America's stranglehold/embargo on trade with Iran through locking down SWIFT.

    Every time I think about a selling plan I’m left with the ‘it depends’ problem. I intend to gradually sell up to 30% in tiny (see what I did there? ) increments of say 3%. Each sale is at an increasingly separated price. Each one won’t return a huge amount of $ but if we assume 16 times growth to first one then its half my investment back. Second sale puts me in profit with eight more to come. But how do I space out those selling points? Well that’s the ‘depends’ part. A quick speculative parabolic might mean keep them close so you do the 30% sale before the fall. A gradually increasing price based on usage and volume means maybe space them out more to get higher gain. On the other hand... a mysterious volume with bull run combo means maybe biggest spacing of all. But because I think XRPTheStandard I will want to keep 70% forever. Maybe living on the XPool interest. Or I could just be a deluded idiot. DYOR.
