    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Looking at the XRP chart - God does this look juicy!!! I'm probably gonna pick up some more today. If this plays out again like it did, I'd say we are roughly in the same place chartwise as we were April 24, 2017 when the price of XRP was .03. So roughly we go up 120x from here putting XRP at a price of about $51.00 in the next 9-10 months. Might be a little optimistic but crypto always surprises.

    Everything is possible in crypto Perhaps not 120x, but 119x is feasable.

    Because it cheapens the integrity of the community. When people come out with unsubstantiated news or unrealistic price expectation (589, 1000, ect...), especially when their information originated from the cesspool that is the Twitter and YouTube communities, they should be called out. If you're going to bring that garbage here with out any legitimate evidence or intelligent argument as to why it is valid, I think a few sarcastic comments are perfectly fair.

    Why so relentlessly adversarial? Why the constant stream of nasty comments? Why do you need to divide the community into the wise and the foolish? I just can’t ever understand the motivation of those folk who seem to delight in “putting another down”. You have your views... you think they are correct, that’s fine. Why do you need to denigrate any who differ?

    Another great post @JannaOneTrick many thanks , I do hope we get some video footage of this event . I like the last panel discussion, day three. A couple of names tied to Ripple. "MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS, IPOs: THE INDUSTRY IS CHANGING Recent announcements by Mastercard, Visa, Earthport, Network, Finalbr, have created an undeniable new interest in the cross-border payments market. Hugo Cuevas-Mohr and Salvador Velazquez, Mohr World Consulting, will discuss the valuations, market trends and how these news might change the market"

    Anytime price is rising, shorts can pile on. But times of extremely low short interest tend to coincide with bottoms, imho. Short interest in XRP is low because the big gains in BTC and LTC and others offer more downside for short side players to exploit in a volatile downside move.

    I responded to this. That investors don't have a clue what they are buying. It's all the same to them and they just follow the whales, after a pump. It was a long respons for saying "the market is young, it's still dumb money. It will become smarter over time'.

    The statement in the conference document is misleading, as they use an opening quotation mark for a Visa statement, but no closing quotation mark. This makes us believe the whole sentence comes from Visa, which is not the case. The correct quote of Bill Sheley, Visa, was: “The acquisition of Earthport unleashes the power of Visa by taking us 'beyond the card,' empowering us to enable our clients to make payments through bank accounts around the world.” Visa has never said they want to work together with Ripple to build an alternative to Swift, that's the vision of the conference people. They did say "The acquisition will make it possible for Visa clients to enable individuals, businesses and governments to utilize Visa to send and/or receive money through bank accounts around the world". Earthport has two main assets, and each of them can be useful to Visa: (1) Ripple rails for cross border payments (2) Good contacts and many very interesting foreign banking relationships We will need to find out if Visa bought the banking relationships or the p2p banking system. Their press release mentions "With the acquisition of Earthport, Visa expects to be able to reach the vast majority of the world's banked population and allow them to easily, quickly and securely move money worldwide". (highlights are mine) Interesting story in any case!

    Ripple is acquiring MoneyGram?

    I might agree with you if I saw a lot of that happening... but I don’t. In fact I see the reverse, a relentless stream of negative posts decrying the fallacy that xrp is a worthwhile investment. Have you seen many bearableguy type posts in the last year? I haven’t. But I can do a quick whip round of the current activity page and show you a flood of negative posts. Written often by that “large chunk on this board who are wiser than your average bear” that our friend above is so proud of. If this site has a pendulum swinging from extreme optimism to extreme pessimism then I think that based on volume, the nays have it. If you look at quality though, the story differs... there is a steady stream of good news posts that have actual real world events. So thanks for being ever ready to ‘sarcasm the stooopid away’, but I don’t see much need for it here.
  26. 3 points
    Isn't this bigger news or am I missing something? I know there was the Earthport purchase, but the claim of wanting to take on Swift by using Ripple, has that been stated previously? Surely this is huge!?

    And you look fabulous darling! Yeah I’m always amazed by the amount of RippleNet progress consistently being made and how the value of XRP remains as stagnant as west Texas pond water. I keep telling myself it’s OK because some event or trigger or tipping point will happen in the future and the days of cheap XRP are over. I still feel this to be true but it does wear on ya after a year or two or three. I know many here have years on me and are hardened so I tell myself to suck it up buttercup and stop whining. But you’re right, a few more corridors of liquidity, a few more major partnerships, offices opened in important regions, god forbid some regulatory clarity by governments around the globe and suddenly your feeling sillier than ever for having ever worried. But this is today and today’s approach for me is to stay my course, remain calm, read @Hodor‘s blogs on incredible progress, review the vast array of information posted by numerous XRP Chat posters and laugh at the steady stream of comedic gifs and comments you and others provide. Looking forward to the onslaught of global FOMO.

    A new and simple post by Ripple. It’s a horrible and sad fact that there’s so many people like her who spend so much time, money and effort just to send money home. The two things she has so little of (time and money); that’s the last thing in the world she should have to put up with. So glad to be following a company with the drive, vision and talent to right this wrong. XRP hodlrs will likely be rewarded for helping Ripple along their journey. Rewarded not only finically but ethically in helping so many like Joyce. https://ripple.com/insights/global-payments-shouldnt-be-stressful-joyces-story/?utm_source=linkedin&utm_medium=organic_social

    Introducing the XRParcade Tipper

    The Tipper application utilizes Wietse’s XRPtipbot, a very popular bot/app that is being widely used by the XRP community. Users can earn XRP by completing specific tasks (visit a website, complete a survey, view a video) and website owners can use the Tipper to attract traffic to their website or a specific page they wish to promote. We will be testing the Tipper on one of our new sections on XRParcade, the demographics. We have prepared a few questions, addressed towards the XRP community, in order to learn more about the people that believe in XRP, their aspirations and targets. Visitors will be able to claim 0.001 XRP if they visit our demographics page. They will be able to claim it even without completing the survey, although we would appreciate it if they did. https://xrpcommunity.blog/introducing-the-xrparcade-tipper/

    But it will be a stable coin pegged to a couple of FIATs. So it will create less friction as long as it is used inside their own network, aside from who partnered with it. If it needs to go outside that network they need something else. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/case-against-bankcoin-brad-garlinghouse/ "The second big problem with the “utility settlement coin” is it seems it’ll be backed by a basket of currencies. Once backed by cash, it’s no longer an asset; it’s a liability. Trading liabilities then ultimately requires moving cash across borders, re-creating today’s system but adding more friction!"

    Would Ripple be 'manipulating' the price to stay stable it would be illegal and they would jeopardize their entire existence. So, no. There could be some whales holding XRP back to make sure people invest in BTC first. Last bullrun BTC went up first, and 21 days later the big guys used their gains to push up XRP. So making XRP as unnatractive as possible for now would benefit them greatly to get maximum profit out of the next bullrun.

    Investors still see 'crypto? Ohh you mean bitcoin?' as one market. So they buy a little BTC, a little ETH, some 'ohh, whats this XRP thing?' and a couple of other random coins a friend just talked about. Just like during the internet bubble when a random company put .com behind it's name and investors lined up to throw money at it. It takes years, but eventually the microsofts, apples, googles, FB's etc remain while others perish. We're still not in the phase where most people do their research. The news is their source and they all shout Bitcoin. It takes time, but fundamentals always win. Not saying best technologies always win, sometimes competition makes a better strategic move than you did (Distributing p*rnvideos on VHS instead of Betamax). Luckily the market is allready better then for example 2017 where suddenly 1500 different useless ICO's popped up and had money thrown at them. Step by step but not this year yet.

    Yes we both mean the same thing. The thing is that I am still questioning how much the investors care about (scale, fees, transferspeeds, corruption). Ofcourse the big investors care about this but the smaller just follow the graph. I am really curious how all of this will result in the near future. But if you ask me, Ripple has a better story and more room to grow then Bitcoin. Just annoys me that **** coins with no real meaning gain 14000% in one day because someome pumps 200 million into it. They should be doing those radical things to Ripple! I want my schmeckels!

    BTC is hitting $9300

    Maybe you're joking, and I missed an earlier discussion or something. Back when BTC was $1, your statement would have been true. If you buy a million dollars of it at $9,000 apiece (approximately 111 BTC), you make or lose a million dollars with every $9,000 move up or down. For every $1 move, you would have about $111.00 in unrealized gains/losses until you sell some/all of it. Put another way, Bilbo Baggins would have eleventy-one dollars at stake with each $1 move up or down.

    Ripple is acquiring MoneyGram?

    I just like thinking about MGI... from the structure of their 80 year old business, to the finance side, to the regulatory side, all the way to the distinction to be drawn with a more "modern" experience for the customer, I think it's instructive. If there's a deal done with Ripple - or anyone else (maybe Justin Sun will convince Warren that MoneyGram is an undervalued global "railroad" - Warren loves railroads!) - that'd certainly be interesting, too, but, looking at legacy remittance companies, analytically, beats "when moon" posts. The people who get bent out of shape fall into two main categories: short term trader types and then those who wish to save all the rest of us by warning us all to be careful - neither of which add much value... De gustibus non est disputandum.

    BTC is hitting $9300

    Not sure HOW soon though. I'm personally not opposed to making money off a questionable asset in an irrational market. One has to temper one's attachment to fundamentals occasionally, no matter how well-founded. Or watch others make money over the short term while your investment stagnates. I wouldn't argue at all with your basic premise, although the kind of problems Galgitron warns about (100% true in my view) are not necessarily just automatically going to happen, and especially over the course of this one market cycle. They could, but I give it a low probability. And the idea that all the whales are off-loading BTC doesn't hold up under scrutiny. They sell and buy back, for the most part. I think the evidence supports that, although I don't have a handy link to prove it. That's what I've read in more than one source I don't own any BTC, at this moment, and I only buy it to trade for alts I want to own. I used to have to do that to buy XRP. Glad that's not necessary now, but for some coins it's unavoidable. But I do buy coins that are early movers in this bull. It's about the timing and the opportunity. I'm not trying to **** off any XRP hodlrs. I'm probably hodling as much XRP as most people here. My motivation in posting is just to see us all make money.by making profitable decisions. (Especially me of course, lol.)

    Crypto investors are the only people who can be up 25% over 6 months and be bummed because things just aren't moving.... I notice today that XRP/USD shorts are back down to the historic lows. This signifies, imho, a new floor for XRP price...and it's just based primarily on general crypto market sentiment. People are looking elsewhere at the moment for trades, both short and long. XRP will continue to complete the triangle it's been working on for months, and then move very suddenly much higher. A buck is easy. Three bucks is possible. Ten bucks is possible......NOBODY KNOWS. I've seen charts like XRP before. It's news driven, but the usual news is not enough right now. Game changing news is coming, I expect. It will be the hodlrs this time who catch the elevator. Those who wait to get in until they see it moving will miss most of it. jmho.

    At the end of the "crypto winter" at the beginning of the year we were predicting the value for XRP during 2019. Instead of predicting a price in dollars I predicted XRP would gain against BTC. I thought that during 2019 XRP would rise from being worth 10k Satoshis to 25K or more. I could not have been more wrong because today XRP is worth less than 5K! In the last six months Bitcoin's technology and utility adoption has lagged further and further and further behind Ripple/XRP. Bitcoins problems of energy costs, centralisation, slowness, lack of scalability and manipulation at the hands of whale barons have become more and more well known to the general public. No one with common sense will ever make Bitcoin into a store of value for their savings or commercial assets. So why can one Bitcoin buy twice as many XRP now as it could 6 months ago? It makes no sense. Crypto Eri, who is better informed than most commentators, said that she had been told there is a consortium of "risk taking whales" who have being pumping BTC. If this is the case we would expect BTC to rise relative to XRP. Another well known source told me that in their opinion BTC grassroots support for BTC has been getting weaker and weaker. Both these rumours make sense and I think that this huge pump of BTC is artificially induced. My guess is that these whales are taking a gamble that if they get their timing right they can induce another rise like happened at the and of 2017, and BTC will hit new ATH well above 20K. It is a dangerous strategy because it depends on new money arriving from an influx of new generation BTC investors, if they don't arrive BTC will crash. If these whales run out of money before the general public come in to support them BTC will crash and it will drag XRP down with it far faster than it carried XRP up to .42, so I am preparing myself to watch my investment go back down to .25 or less. I will never sell my XRP, whatever is happening in the market because I do not want to risk losing them. I believe Susan Athern's predictions that if Ripple XRP captures a significant proportion of the cross border payment market XRP tokens will be worth between 50 - 300 dollars each. I think this is going to happen because XRP/Ripple are the only provider of no counter party cross border liquidity and nobody is near catching them. I have to be honest and say that I watch the slow progress of XRP with frustration, but my logical self tells me not to get emotionally involved with the prices.

    Jed McCaleb & XRP

    He didn't tell me anything that isn't outlined in is agreement with Ripple. That's where you should be looking for specific information. I don't remember how he described it, but it wasn't one specific charity but something with many charities underneath it, I think. I didn't ask any questions other than why he stopped selling and it was a simple answer of adhering to the agreement he made with Ripple. When that wallet sells, he will not. He has moved on. All of his XRP will be sold according to his agreement with Ripple. Both XRP and XLM are open source projects that some startups work with, simultaneously, and end up in the crossfire of people thinking it can only be one or the other. Stronghold comes to mind. Jed wanted to extend an olive branch. I was happy to accept.

    @dreventures Tnx for sharing this excellent video explaining the 'workings' of XRP in relation to stablecoins. XRP is the world bridge asset and is creating THE 'level playing field' in payments & settlements for everyone to enjoy.
