    I’m suggesting this possibility based on the timing of all the regs coming through at similar times...

    I could listen to Brad Garlinghouse talk all day about Ripple and Tech. I really like the way Brad convey's his message. He's such a smart and likable guy.

    Earn 5% on XRP on Uphold!

    This looks interesting but I have a few questions, not sure if you are able to answer. 1. How do they use the loaned digital assets to generate revenue and pay for the interest? 2. Do they lend the DAs to short-sellers who will then borrow them to short-sell the market? 3. What kind of risks will the participants bear in such an arrangement? 4. Will the interest be paid in the DA equivalent or in fiat? 5. Can we construe the difference in projected interest rates across the DAs as an indication of the pricing pressures that are applied to the respective DAs?

    thanx for the compliment although you wrong in everything and when I say everything is everything including your ego thinking that you are the smarter guy of the classroom and the rest of people are nonbrain. But the truth is that you wrong either ways.

    que pasa joe! gracias for your contribution I really appreciate it Forex trading is simple in daily and weekly chart if you have set up your mind to trigger the bottom with no fear and buy when is cheap and sell when is expensive and you respect your own rules like risk management. For example I play the game with no SL and I got saved more than once. Let me tell you that I though about that but being honest to you I don't want to be a trader at all. I will trade forex if I can buy or sell 2 standard lots in a weekly chart and go for 6k to 10k monthly. Sound a topic but I'm already billionaire because I've got my wife and two children of 4 and 1 year old that I love and they love me. I past through a lot of experiences to really appreciate what I've got right now. Doesn't meant that anyway I don't want the money, but you couldn't believe for what reason I really want to be a millionaire. Anyways, I am seeking finding whatsoever way to get my freedom which is priceless !!!

    Mikecasey , What is starting to concern me is the USC coin could be used in place of xrp where they hold the whole lot , no plebs involved hoping to get rich . They don't need to run XRP they could run a clone of xrp called whatever coin If they choose , no Jed no Plebs . 100% bank owned digital asset which will render XRP useless . As is stated again and again by those youtube muppets like dmlogic " ripple owes us nothing " .

    Only a very few of the new "experts" that bought their coins, will still hold in three years. That's called "distribution". As time passes by, new stakeholders enter the project. It surprises me how frequent contributors to this forum still don't see the fundamental innovation that decentralized digital assets are bringing to our world, and how they will help us to shape a better future.

    I will defer to better minds for price predictions.

    Your description of investing in xrp as "venture capital with liquidity" is appropriately descriptive. We are so fortunate to be able to invest at this stage, like venture capitalists. I have thought about it as being a venture capitalist, but never put together that we also have liquidity. I wish all the sellers would look at it more like venture capital and leave their money in, but none the less we (as in average, shallow-pocket investors) are lucky even with the waves of volatility. We all know that with stocks people like us don't get to get in before an IPO takes them public. Thanks for the analysis!

    We have to take the Triffin dilemma into consideration. We know the Federal reserve and central banks around the world have been thinking about this conundrum since the 60s. In reality it has been sort of commented on for milllenias by people like Machiavelli and Roman historians and emperors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triffin_dilemma Some sort of liquid digital asset could possibly solve this if the cards are played right. It will have to start as a small thing that gains trust over time in many markets and usecases. Projects like USC (started by UBS and Clearmatics in 2015) are doing something very different from this. The XRP-ledger can be developed on by anyone for anything they want.

    I give the sand shovel to my friend Wandering Dog. First I had the sand shovel, and he didn't. Now he has the sand shovel, and I don't. I couldn't "give" him an email attachment or an mp3 in the same way. Get it?

    Yes, of course no one knows what the price will be in the future. But I like your point about mind if it’s own - the utilization of XRP will on its own set a market average price. By the time XRP ever hits 3 digits I think the ecosystem will be so large and so many people or institutions will be holding XRP for various reasons. The type of returns seen on trading XRP are likely to significantly differ than where we are today...as we see less volatility -a transition from alpha to beta returns. At that point trades will be less risky in this sense and also provide significantly less ROI. Should be an interesting ride no doubt.

    Not offended, just curious why you ask personal info, or seek my motives, while choosing to ignore the point I made about the escrow. If you beleive RL should be the sole steward of the world’s money supply, then say it, or provide some sort of logic, explaining how this implementation, will work. As far as your direct questions, my past posts are still on this site. Read them, and you will see my motives, and how my attitude diminished. I held through the bull run of Dec 2017. But soon afterwards, I noticed that all the loyal RL “experts,” on this site, quietly cashed out and disappeared. Only leaving us a faint echo of “HOLD HOLD HOLD!!” Those folks bought when XRP was $.0001. (yes, less than a penny) I learned a lot through 2018, and everything I learned makes it look like RL will be the most successful finance company the world has ever seen, and at the same time XRP will be worth $0. ( I made this same point in one of my earliest posts, Jan 2018) Remember that XRP is not required for 2 of the 3 platforms, RL liscences. It did serve a purpose...Rocket fuel for their trip to the moon. At least I got a buzz from their fumes, otherwise I would be angry.

    It is a good plan, but do not get in the mindset that you are going to retire. This is still a high risk investment and be prepared to lose your entire investment.

    Generating Keys on Ripple Site

    If you have access to a machine with node.js and npm, it's just about five lines of code: Save that as "coldwallet.js". Type "npm install ripple-keypairs" (ignore a warning about no package.json file). And then type "node coldwallet.js". Boom, you have a secret/account pair. For extra paranoia, run the tool a few times and don't use any of the first few results.
