    In 1991 I bought a London flat for 92K pounds - I sold it in 1999 for 220k - two years late the couple who bought it from me sold it for over 400k, today the flat is probably worth 700k. Millions of my generation did not get rich from our work, we got rich by buying property in the 1980/90 and sitting on an asset that exploded in value under us. Many of us did not sell, but we talked about our wealth, knew we were rich and borrowed and spent. The growth of value of our assets under us created an economic boom out of thin air, the cake of economic wealth simply grew and we lucky ones got a big slice. The generations after us got clobbered with unaffordable mortgages and debts. I predict that millions and millions of people will buy some crypto and this will make them rich in the same way as happened to us. The birth of crypto is going to inject a huge amount of money into the economy, the cake of economic wealth will grow and the owners of slices in that cake will talk about their crypto wealth like we talked about house prices. The fact that it is all going to happen on messaging aps is going to turbo charge what happened with house prices in 1990 - 2007

    ETH up again today. Alts are definitely showing some resistance to BTCs price action.

    I also think BTC will decrease to around 8,200-8,300 USD in the next weeks (end of wave 2) but then wave 3 of the new cycle begins (target 60,000+ USD - could take over a year). Check the green fib zone BTCUSD is at the moment: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/BTCUSD/xhekyZKX-Lost-Years-Scenario/ The other scenarios are less likely: Therefore I think it is a mix of both. A catch up of XRPBTC until wave 2 of BTCUSD is finished and a parallel rise of BTCUSD and XRPUSD afterwards (esp. after April 2020) with slight corrections of XRPBTC.

    Bought some more XRP. Trying to get back to a full bag before it runs to $589...or $5.89...or .589...I'd take any of those....

    I think XRP has woken up but he still hasn't had his coffee yet. He's kind of struggling to stay out of bed. I hope he's doing okay.

    That didn't take long. Triangle looks to break downward and the volume confirms a true break. I expect it will take us down to $0.28-$0.29. This should be a good retest of the old support lines.

    Is that where people from India park their cars? I don't think there is a working XRP corridor/exchange there yet so utilising XRapid won't be possible even if they wanted right? As said before it's about getting everyone and their dogs around the globe on Ripplenet, build more Fiat>XRP>Fiat corridors and then flip switches when liquidity allows it.

    exactly -- there are a few options here for the crypto-shy banks and FIs -- they don't have to hold or even touch xrp directly, but can be part of a wider remittance chain that DOES utilise xrp

    We were just too overbought on the daily, we were bound to give some up. I'd like to see us test our new (same as the old) support around $0.28 (blue line) and post a nice bounce. This would make me feel happy and tingly. It is also fine if we go down and consolidate sub $0.30 for a few days, though that would be admittedly much more boring. Everything still looks good on the long term charts.

    This is my point with all of the hundreds of millions of dollars that institutional buyers have been pouring into xrp. (much to the whining of those critics overly focused on the short term price) When xrp breaks $1, there will literally be billions of new found equity in the very firms' war chests, that are best positioned to actually utilize xrp. The potential for a synergistic "snowball effect" of logarithmically increasing utilization, could easily dwarf even what many of us have dared to imagine. Time will tell.....

    I'm not calling "decoupling" here, but I don't think the move in BTC has anything to do with XRP and vice versa. BTC fell on its own, part of what I think will be a much bigger fall, while XRP gave back some it's big gains, which is a completely technical and expected move. Notice that ETH didn't run as far as XRP and is relatively holding it's value right now.

    i don't see why XRP cant produce upwards of the $6 dollar range . This figure will be perfectly acceptable . BTC id guess the 50 to 75k area ( I'm erring on the Conservative side here - don't want to be too greedy )

    That's a fairly surprising take on that, I'd say. I definitely don't see BTC breaking down to those levels at all. I'd put the chances of a drop to $5k at less than 5%. I am expecting a break up (most likely), or at the very least further sideways consolidation.

    Memos are part of the signed part of the transaction blob. So if you signed a transaction with a memo, the memo can't be removed without invalidating the transaction signature. Now, the Data API doesn't necessarily need to serve transactions with valid signatures (it doesn't pull things directly from the blockchain), but the Websocket API does, and it doesn't see the memos, either.... so I think this has to be an issue with your bot. Ultimately no protocol changes have happened as a result of the "memo takedown squad" thing because it ended up being way more bluster than substance. I think it's healthy to continue to discuss whether the protocol should adjust transaction cost requirements based on the size and complexity of the transaction, but it's become apparent that nothing urgently needs to change so we can take the time to get it right.

    Can you imagine how viral crypto could go with aps like this. Imagine XRP goes up to 1 dollar before Christmas - the people with the ap will have trebled their money, so they tell their friends on the ap - hey have you heard of XRP? and they start buying and making money. This could start a ball rolling

    I don’t think that is a supportable view. Ripple have had a track record for a few years now of sticking to the sales at rates that they publicly declare. No others in this space can say that to my knowledge. Furthermore they decided themselves and publicly stated, BEFORE all the hullabaloo about their sales, that they would effectively reduce them by no longer using the Coinmarketcap figures. So in effect they have a track record of a steady rate and then recently reducing it. Btw these rates were in effect when runs have occurred so we know they do NOT stop a bull run. Also they recently indicated they would be sending institutional otc buyers out to the public market in future if the required liquidity is available in the relevant region. No other company does this to my knowledge. So to assume that they will suddenly abandon all that and start dumping doesn’t seem to have a supportable basis in my opinion.

    Ripple Going UP?

    07/09/2019 Ripple is a slow one. I've been keeping a keen eye on the market for many hours. Going through, too many, news articles and charts, as I'm sure many of you are too. With that I assume most of us caught onto the bearish-ness of yesterdays trades. I made my escape early, on the 6th however I did have too much hope for the market to jump back up again meaning I couldn't catch all of the glorious winnings. Falling flat and seemingly dull for the majority of 20:45[UTC] to around 11:00[UTC], XRP took the steering wheel and climbed up ~4% today. As I type this out, XRPUSD is 0.26000. This to me is a clear sign that we are in this descent triangle that has been holding us for a while now. I feel a strong drop after this dance in 0.26 (That could push us to 0.27 so set those limits), looking to falling to around 0.25 again, and when it will follow that pattern I am seeing a bounce back that will happen, maybe giving us back that sweet our early August 0.3. This time however instead of hitting the graveyard again, XRP is going to rise up 10-13% across a span of around 3days, after breaking 0.3. I know this sounds like mad talk however it all is dependent on the drop to ~0.255. Break that bar, it will surely launch XRP right up there. Anyway just sharing the news, thought it'd be good to spread. Happy trading. -RB

    Could this be Ripple's bug?

    @UmebaraY I made a lazy attempt at watching the votes of the default UNL. (https://padanaram.digital ->validator votes). You have to wait for the flag ledger in order to see them, which could be up to 16 minutes. I watch the validation stream, which after verifying the votes with a couple validator operators, seems to provide the correct amendment votes. It's a pain to stay on top of who the validators are when the public keys of some validators seem to change from time to time, so you might see validations that are not labeled. Looks like Ripple finally set some of their validators to vote for fixMasterKeyAsRegularKey, so it's over 80%, now we wait for the 2 weeks to pass.

    Not a horrible correction so far, given that BTC dropped. Looks like a fairly normal retrace....maybe we base here.

    So what are his intentions then? Telling us something we all don't like the hear, but what could be the truth? Or could it be that he's far more realistic than you, and you just can't stand the reality? Btc is dropping fast today and is pulling rxp with it, and that's a fact until now, so first post or not, he doesn't talk poep imo.

I also wrote about payout ratio breakdowns, subscriber figures, and comparing how the service works to Flattr (they’ve been pushing a similar business model for web monetization for the last two years).

    Good question. Quick glance at the chart shows that those stretches usually occur during bear or flat markets. I don't see any that immediately preceded a big take off.

    Charts - How To's

    once you break 70, health scares are the new norm. if you dont have a health scare, youre probably dead ..my knees hurt. lovin' it of course, its all based on opinion. theres a distinction between fundamentals and the time between lows and highs. just because a chart is 'low' doesnt mean the fundamentals are crap. im an old fart investor in JPM and remember when the stock fell out from under us in 2001. nothing like watching your retirement drop from $60 to $15 a share heres the article: https://money.cnn.com/2001/09/17/markets/markets_newyork/ the key point here which applies to xrp as well is the quote, "The question is, 'How long will it take to rebuild confidence?'" thats what you have to ask with any investment. its not a matter of ripple getting their act together, or government regulating, or blah blah blah. xrp is down in price because confidence levels in crypto are low. once confidence returns, xrp will hit new highs. so to me, "what do you make of this long accumulation period that we've been in for basically the past year?"... notice you said 'year' as in single. its too early to tell what it means. it took JPM over SIX THOUSAND DAYS to recover from the 2001 crash and break $100. so forget wondering what 'one year' means. if xrp takes 6,000 days to hit $50 or $100, itll be the year 2036. how many people here would reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllly be mentally and emotionally able to hold their xrp for 17 years? not many. again, as said in the past, this is why there are so few btc millionaires. thousands of people back in in the day owned 500,000+ BTC, but like greg (sorry greg) they sold because it 'took too long'. people shouldnt have their minds made up that theyre 'holding for 10 years no matter what'. its silly. what happens if xrp skyrockets in 5? youre still going to hold? for most, a million dollars is an impossible dream. its fun to talk about and joke, but so few in here will really make $1,000,000 simply because theyre focusing on whats happening 'right now'. the things happening right 'now' will only affect the price years later. JPM didnt jump to $100 in a week. it takes time to hit those levels. wow i really blabbed on in summary.. im not sure if xrp will skyrocket because of fundamentals or more along the line of speculation. something in the near future is going to cause xrp and all coins to jump dramatically; whether its a rumor, or 'leaked information' or just online people pumping. we just need to be ready for it because, just like december 11, 2017, we had no idea just a few weeks later the price would hit $3.30
