    Hello Everyone. I'm Eri I'd like to study, learn and discuss the material shared by Bob on XRP, the XRP Ledger, etc. Please call me "Eri" which is the name I use in Japan because my given name has a "z", "b" and "th" which are sounds proven to be difficult for Japanese to pronounce. Eri is a shortened version, easy and common in this part of the world. I'm also known as: @sentosumosaba on twitter (sento = hot spring bath, sumo = I'm a serious fan, saba = a favorite sushi). My Youtube channel is: CryptoEri / I upload on average, 6X per week and have had an online presence in this XRP space for 14 mos primarily with an English speaking audience, however my reach is truly world-wide as shown in my google analytics. Women viewership is growing at a fast clip recently. I grew up in the SF Bay Area (California) and currently reside in Tokyo which has been my home for 16 years. I am able to translate the material / or PPT decks into Japanese and distribute to the Japanese XRP community by way of influencers whom I know online - both on the twitter and the Youtube platform. Tokyo: GMT+9 I'm hoping to be a team member in any capacity with a personal goal to grow the XRP holder base, increase investor awareness, and attract new users to the technology. In addition, I think it is important to dispel any mistruths people might have about Ripple & XRP that hinder its status in this ecosystem. Lastly, I love this space. .

    SEC and escrow

    The SEC doesn’t make rulings, their job is to “enforce” the existing securities law. In my personal opinion, if the SEC wanted to bring an enforcement action against Ripple regarding XRP (which would then leave it up to a court to provide the actual ruling), they would have done so already. Furthermore, public opinions or “guidance” provided by SEC does not constitute actual law. It is merely a statement of the agency’s position. Like any government agency, the SEC has limited resources at its disposal. Going after Ripple/XRP would not only be a very expensive endeavor, it is also not a clear cut and dry case from a securities law perspective. The SEC is much more likely to spend their resources going after ACTUAL scams and blatantly fraudulent ICOs etc.

    Today Galgitron posted a very interesting snapshot from his spreadsheet. I analyzed it quickly to give a better understanding of the numbers behind the chart. The main focus are: Remittances And Payments between: 20 - 1,500 XRP (6 - 500$) Medium Payments between: 1,500 - 15,000 XRP (500 - 5,000$) Multiple things are interesting: The increase for both segments began at the same time, around mid February (Some event may have happened to trigger such strong surges) The increases are proportionally similar, slightly stronger for small payments, which seems logical in regards to remittances There are twice more small payments of 500$ max than payments of 15,000$ max, which again seems logical (low value, high volume)

    SEC and escrow

    There might not be a ruling on XRP for many years because as soon as the SEC makes a ruling, and this space is still in its infancy, such an early ruling if negative could have very negative effects on the growth of this space in the US, and if they make a positive ruling prematurely, there could subsequently be loopholes found that don't exist currently that allow legacy securities to be introduced legally in a sneaky way that's compliant with their ruling - my guess.

    @JannaOneTrick @galgitron These are great metrics, one aspect of Liquidity. I'm not sure if it is possible, but if fiat:XRP conversions could be tracked.. we could see 'liquidity depth per fiat", and that is the key metric. It should be growing in both number of fiat pairings, and depth per fiat, if the network's utility is growing. (Also #of orderbooks making a market for each fiat pair, this adds robustness) Can you track exchange-to-exchange transactions? Or Payment Channel claim TXs settling between exchanges?

    "Vive la France!" He even went to Washington to try and talk sense into them. I'm glad he's as motivated as he is and I'm glad France has leadership willing to make a move. Having a country take the lead and start to enjoy the rewards is exactly what it will take to get other nations to make a move. And that will benefit all of us. Outstanding work @JannaOneTrick - you've been really crushing it lately.

    Although I believe i am well versed in the conceptualisation of dlt and related software i would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with a well versed XRPL developer and gain some hands on experience. I go by OZ Crypto. You can refer to me as OZ. I'm also known as Oz Crypto on YouTube and @OZCRYPTO2 on twitter. I only speak English Australian english at that. G'day, mate, shielas, that's not a knife this is a knife all the standards. I am in Sydney so operate on AEST i am hoping to be able to share the knowledge I gain with youtube and the world.

    Ripple's employees dumping their stash?

    He could just tell the IRS to wait for their money? Maybe 9 months, maybe 2 years, maybe 5 years.
