    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    XRP displaying a little strength after getting rejected by the 200 day moving average. Possibly forming a bull flag to retest the 200MA. A daily close above that line would signal a good entry at least for a short term play. Some of the other majors like ETH are setting up nicely for entries but not quite there yet.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Bitcoin's price turned positive by the end of the day yesterday to put the price above the Short Term Downtrend, which it then fell below today. The price is basically following the Short Term Down Trend lower since June 1st. The price is also at the 50 Day EMA which has been providing some support. Bollinger Bands have flattened out. Waiting on the general up trend to start.

    Crypto Eri - News from the Far East

    Can't wait to see if he replies. Here is a thought. Should this guy be squatting, and Ripple should take the position that the XRP Logo is in it's own boat, should there not be then an opposition made from an organized entity from the community?

    The overall business proposition for Coil will take time to catch on. The great thing about the collaborative approach Coil has taken is that they've partnered with two platforms (Mozilla and Creative Commons) that have pioneered open-source mediums/platforms as well as helping content creators legally "share their knowledge and creativity to build a more equitable, accessible, and innovative world." However, even more important is Coil's partnership with Loup Design and Innovation (a leading global marketing and consultancy group) to manage the $100 million dollar Grants For The Web fund and partnerships. Oftentimes many novel ideas are squandered and poorly executed by their visionaries due to the lack of good guidance, strategic planning, and thoughtful execution of such said idea. I think Stefan is going about this the right way sourcing the right talent to scale his vision for a new web-monetization model for content creators. To your concern regarding the need to reach a larger audience (i.e. Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos, etc.) Stefan mentioned in the extended Ripple Drop episode (01:48 - End) back on September 5th that partnering with larger platform and Internet service providers where you have a Coil bundle as part of your subscription to Netflix, Hulu, Charter, etc. Ripple gave them 1 billion XRP to help them provide the monetary support to build out the Coil platform and incentivize the growth and development of a community of content creators to test and build on top of the platform. I'll admit, Coil's business proposition is a risky and tall order endeavor? However nothing like this has ever been attempted, at least not at this level. Changing the status quo is never easy, which is why they've enlisted some of the best partners in promoting open-sourced tech/platforms for content creators. The business model for the web is completely and utterly broken with ads and subscription models that work best within the constructs of scaled models that has led to the concentration of power and influence in the hands of a few tech giants (i.e. FAANG, Alibaba, Tencent, et al). Coil's web monetization platform is a new way for content creators to make money. It operates and utilizes open standards that are not subjugated to one particular tech giant. In combination with their Grant for the Web program, Coil intends to help smaller players (i.e. small publishers, indie musicians, indie game developers, etc.) compete with "Big Data" who hold the power to decide how content is shared. Coil offers an alternative monetization formula for these content creators to get paid for their work without relying on intrusive advertising schemes (i.e. Adword or Adsense), paywalls, as well as the known abuse of personal data that has run a muck of the Internet of late. In many respects, Coil is doing for your average content creator what Ripple has done for small-medium sized banks and FIs by offering them an alternative to SWIFT and your large correspondent banks (i.e. JP-Morgan, Citi, HSBC, et al). No one gave them a sliver of hope in the beginning. Even the small-medium sized banks who would've benefited the most from the technology were very cautious of engaging with them at the onset. However, the folks at Ripple kept their heads down, remained focused, kept building out the platform, made strategic partnerships and slowly banks/FIs, especially your small-medium sized entities, quickly saw the benefits of the tech stack they offered. Now look at Ripple. It is one of the most successful blockchain/DLT companies that has emerge out of this new industry with over +300 customers and still growing!! I think Coil has the greatest chance for success to bring about a more equitable web monetization infrastructure for content creators than any other entity out there. I would recommend going through the Grants For The Web blog posts as you will be able to see many of the initiatives/proposals they are funding. One such proposal that received funding is a platform by Jesse von Doom called Substation. It will "explore decentralized membership and subscription-based business models."

    when you upload your smart contract to SEPX TSS, SEPX return a signing key to add to your account, means yours account is controlled by the smart contact , and it use multi sign to realize decentralization , I think this is simple than codius.

    Coil is a web-monetization platform that uses a proposed real-time web-streaming monetization standard (API) created by Coil. It's not a crypto, token, nor smart-contract platform, nor a decentralized network like those found in cryptos. I'm not aware if this platform allows for smart contracts - I haven't read this anywhere, but then again, I didn't search for that specifically. Currently, Coil's web-browser API interacts via ILP to allow for the streaming of micropayments in real-time in any fiat denomination or XRP from a content consumer to a content creator on a per-second (of time) cost basis of content consumption. Coil allows use of its real-time streaming service via its API for a monthly subscription fee of 5 USD. The thing I find odd about Coil is that the monthly subscription fee is paid by content consumers, when instead it should be content providers that should be paying for this service, but since there is lack of demand for this service at the moment, why should content providers pay for it? It's us "investors" that need to bootstrap this service before there is sufficient demand from content creators I suppose ;P, which means if you want to contribute $$ to your favorite content creator, you have to first subscribe $5/month for this streaming-service, and then a portion of your monthly subscription fee gets streamed to your favorite content creators in real-time based on how much of their content you consume on a 'per second of time basis' I suppose. This is a very odd monetization model wherein the consumer has to spend extra money on a montly subscription and time just to pay for content they might want only occasionally. It better be really good content; otherwise, I see no incentive for consumers to go out of their way to pay a monthly subscription fee to consume content, unless it were something like Netflix, for example, and you only want to watch occasionally, and you pay only when you watch and pay only for every second you consume on-demand real-time consumption without a subscription - I would be willing to pay for that - if the cost is significantly better than renting a streaming movie for a 24-hour period and paying a fixed cost for it. If it's a premium movie, you could boost the per-second rate of payment a little higher, but you should be quoted an hourly cost or the cost of the entire product (e.g., movie) based on the type of content you are consuming - not all content is created equal- so you know the difference between watching premium content or HD content vs less-desired or SD content, etc. The content creators are not required to pay a membership fee, so this is an odd business model unless the content and unit price (per second) are so good that it is significantly better in both respects than any other conventional payment methods and costs for the same content. OK, I'm guessing again at this sh*t because there is a lot of technical jargon involved, but this is what I put together based on a lot of contradicting info I've read about Coil in the last hour or so, so take it with a grain of salt. Also, I should actually try subscribing to Coil before writing all this sh*t because I really don't understand what content they are talking about until I try it.

    A short reminder

    https://www.complianceweek.com/regulatory-policy/regs-rollback-volcker-rule-restrictions-on-bank-investments/29123.article By this I meant that you will no longer receive sufficient countervalue for the promised payouts, because by then either the currency value has been exorbitantly diluted or the insurance companies from which you hope to receive a payout have gone bankrupt. After all, it always boils down to who pays the circus of net recipients - and that can only be net payers. As I do not have enough insight into the US-American situation, I am referring here in particular to the situation in Germany, where you can observe a significant increase in the number of recipients of payments and benefits (from public social and health insurance companies) and a real flight of net payers.

    Codius: The contracts run on independent hosts and not on the underlying blockchain or cryptographic network, similar to traditional hosting. This is because the architecture of a cryptographic network is complicated enough without throwing programmability into the mix. Codius resides on the application layer to allow contracts and dApps to interface with other blockchains, legacy systems, other internet services provider, etc. With the Interledger Protocol the primary obstacle of smart contracts  (i.e. interoperability)  was remedied giving Codius the ability to interact with any service or API, scale infinitely, and read or write to any blockchain like Ethereum, Bitcoin, etc. Codius is not tied to any one currency it can settle via any "value" designation. Codius has two components: the contract portion and a smart oracle. Having both allows its users to account for multiple variables and random outcomes (via the oracle) that can alter the outcome of the specified contract. Not tied to one particular language like Ethereum (i.e. Solidity), but allows users to utilize any programming language they choose (i.e. Java, JavaScript, Solidity, etc.) Because Codius platform resides outside of the blockchain or cryptographic network, it can do something that other contract platforms (i.e. Ethereum) can't do, and that is that it can keep secrets.

    LOL spoken like someone who has no clue what he is doing. Lets see when you delete you account like previous OP when you realize your hopes and dreams where completely deluded. Comparing BTC price to XRP with no regard to supply and demand of both.

    No Bull Run!

    When Bitcoin was $100 you could say those that didn't get in at 6 cents were late. XRP is only getting started. The next bull run will far exceed the last one.

    Can i spend all my LIKES just for this post? This is brilliant, @tar and i do hope there are enough educated people, with the same way of thinking, in Germany - country which has been disappointing me lately.

    Crypto Eri - News from the Far East

    I have a similar appreciation for Eri. But I wonder whether posting recaps of her videos might not be hurting her more than helping her? Anyone reading your recaps instead of watching her videos isn't tipping her with Coil, or giving her ad revenue from Youtube. Maybe just post a link to each video, then have the follow up conversation on this thread?

    In my view, this is a clash of two paradigms. On the one hand, we have the conservatives who want to preserve the system structure, especially legal security & future security (for their own children) - overall social cohesion. They know from their experience that you have to fight and pay for it and that you cannot replace and ignore competence by quotas - they know personal responsibility. On the other hand, there are the moralists and opponents of the system who adhere to a fantastic world view in which everyone feels comfortable, everyone is helped, conflicts do not exist and in which everything somehow seems to be for free. By this I mean above all Marxists (among them climate activists, feminists, antifa, BLM, humanists and meanwhile also the majority of so-called journalists, who think they have an educational mission instead of informing neutrally), who can do nothing but destroy, parasitize, make demands, feel insulted. They want to abolish the state, the constitutional state and, very recently, the police. They want racial and gender discrimination against whites and men and disguise this as quotas for POC and women. They want the unconditional basic income and do not recognise that this too must be paid. They rebel against alleged oppression and accept the collapse of society in return. They want to create a new world - a world without borders, without individualism, in which everyone can be everything and define anything at will. They want (once again) to create a new type of human being for world communism. We know the results of such projects well enough. My problem here is not knowing which of all these people is really smart

    As you may have noticed: there are no markets, anymore as central banks are massively intervening and buying everything in order to prevent a major crisis and thereby also a healthy correction, unfortunately. This has, by the way, been predicted around 20-30 years ago by Paul C. Martin (Debitism) [1] and is now recogniced by different financial analysts (e.g. Leonhard Fischer who said in an interview that the middle class is the loser of this game). In short, the debitistic dilemma means that states must at some point fail in their own pre-financing, which forces them to expand permanently. It is now impossible to raise interest rates without triggering a crisis at the same time. Because of this situation, central banks are trying to save everyone by simply buying up everything the market can offer. Companies can issue bonds directly to the FED and do what they want with the money - even speculate on the stock market. The same applies to the Treasury's loans to companies - the money is not earmarked for a specific purpose. As of October 1, the whales (banks) are allowed to gamble again - with the customers' deposits (i.e. the cash holdings of their customers). The Volcker Rule, which was introduced to prevent another financial crisis, will now be abolished again. JPMorgan expects the central banks to expand the monetary base by another $15 trillion by mid 2021. The top 10% of the wealthy take advantage of this situation by taking out loans at favourable rates and jumping on this bandwagon. As a result, share prices are also rising contrary to any expectations of returns in the real economy (especially due to the collapse in orders, which has been exacerbated by the Corona crisis). Take a look at the share value of Tesla, for example. Really? Then I don't know what the situation in the USA looks like, but here in Germany there is a massive real estate bubble and there is also massive demand for precious metals (especially gold), which in some cases leads to physical delivery problems. The one who has nothing (the lower class) cannot invest, but also loses nothing, since he has nothing to lose from the outset. Those who are hit hardest belong to the middle class: blue-collar workers, white-collar workers. Basically everyone who has some assets, but not enough to get cheap loans and to be able to compensate for any losses. It is precisely this class that finances the state and is currently being fleeced. As they are now subject to the highest taxation in the world in Germany (we are talking about up to 42% income tax plus health, social and nursing care insurance) and at the same time the water is being dug out of them, a flight abroad began. On top of that, they spend about 80 billion euros (conservatively estimated) annually here for so-called "refugees" who cannot be integrated into the labour market. And the trend is rising. In my opinion, it is only a matter of time before the whole thing implodes - worldwide. But until then, the party goes on. At the moment, a turnaround is looming with regard to the USD/EUR exchange rate. This is likely to be due on the one hand to the aforementioned glut of money and on the other to the planned EU debt union. The corresponding chart looks like this: What is left over when currencies are diluted and stocks, real estate and precious metals are pushed to unprecedented heights? Government bonds, which are considered safe, are becoming increasingly risky and do not generate returns anyway. So sooner or later, cryptos will also rise to new highs. On the one hand, because it allows you to hide capital and move it out of the country. On the other hand, because here you find another possibility to diversify your assets and the crypto market has corrected itself "healthy" since about 2 years. Regarding XRP in particular, I can only say that I do not understand their strategy at the moment and honestly wonder why they have not made the big breakthrough yet. I also don't know what is really true about the rumor that they want to create an additional currency anchor together with central banks. I haven't paid enough attention to this in recent months. The XRP chart itself has not changed, however, as the channel boundaries have so far been adhered to. This means that it still points to a crazy outbreak around September. I'm curious, but also cautious, to make another really big entry now (got my stash) - just because of the current dangerous world situation. The best advice is probably to diversify your assets as much as possible and to write off life and pension insurance in your mind. [1] Prophecy of Dr. Paul C. Martin 1987, translated from German: Today is the worldwide day of last-resort lending as described by the English economist Walter Bagehot in the 19th century: All countries will be liable for all countries, all central banks for all central banks, including the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and many other international institutions. And all countries will stand for all banks, however, all central banks will also face the music for all countries, and all countries for all central banks. All, all, all will be there for all, all, all. And all know, that nothing must happen to anybody, since then it would happen to all of them. Original quote in German: "Heute ist weltweit Bagehot total: Alle Staaten werden für alle Staaten, alle Notenbanken für alle Notenbanken haften, einschließlich Währungsfonds und Weltbank und vielen anderen internationalen Institutionen. Und alle Staaten werden für alle Banken geradestehen, aber auch alle Notenbanken für alle Staaten und alle Staaten für alle Notenbanken. Alle, alle, alle werden für alle, alle, alle dasein. Und alle wissen, dass keinem von allen etwas passieren darf, weil dann allen etwas zustößt."
