    Bitcoin's Price Action. Bollinger Bands are very tight and getting tighter. The 200 Day EMA just made a Bullish Cross of the Long Term Down Trend Line. The price is right at the Short Term Down Trend Line. As you can tell if you've been following my posts for any amount of time, one of the main things I utilize to determine the direction which the price is headed is the Exponential Moving Averages breaking key Trend Lines. To me the 200 Day EMA movement is a very bullish indicator.

    Hi everyone, long time lurker here. Over the last year, I have seen XRP Chat fall into a downward spiral. Whether you personally care or not, the price is not where most would like it to be, so people become angry/leave/only react out of spite. The lambomoonboys are gone, thank god, but it seems that they have been replaced by trolls, Maxi's and general gloom. And that's a shame. XRP Chat is shrinking and the number of in-depth analyses and qualified speculation has dropped with it. That's what I would like to change. I would like to start an XRP Research Collective. A group, here on XRP Chat, of likeminded individuals that would rather research the shit out of topics, than to sit, wait and speculate. It's main goal is to find factual information, with some room for 'connecting the dots' for those who want to. I propose a 5 weekday period of purely sourcing and sharing data on one topic, followed by a weekend of connecting dots between the found information. All participants can vote on what topic to research next. By having a specific goal with a specific set of rules, I think we, as a collective, can find so much more information than anyone could alone. Let's work together and get XRP Chat into a positive spiral again! Topics of research could be: SBI, Coil, US regulation, EU regulation, ODL, Ripplenet partners, ... I think we should try to stay as factual as possible, so that everyone can draw his/her own conclusions. So no articles/video's from the Ripple/XRP Army, only from the source (Ripple official, partner pages, government documents). Figure out where they got their information from, and then find the actual source. Let's keep the hopium to a limit, at least until it's the weekend... Please respond if you have any suggestions for the whole set-up, or if you would like to add a topic to the research list. edit:

    The notion that price doesn't matter of course is absurd. While I agree that over the long haul everything gets forgotten, consider this: The whole business model of Ripple is based on prices and price calculations. Of course a higher token price increases liquidity and facilitates implementations whereas a lower and lower token price keeps away potential market makers and customers who'd bet on the future of this tech. Still to this day it looks like no escrow sales. All that's taken from escrows is used by Ripple to get cash and grow the ecosystem. The day someone starts picking up escrow lots validates the whole project. And of course this will increase the price massively. Add the many assurances given by Bradley that use cases matter... well, obviously they don't or what? Seems like coins having nothing but a whitepaper fare better overall? I bet that a higher token price will accelerate adoption of Ripple tech. The low token price really is a stigma and big hinderance to make progress. So yes, current price matters very much. Perhaps not to apologetic Ripple devotees - and believe me I understand their position.

    But my point is that you seem to be saying you know these addresses, and have seen proof of his lie. The way that claims of that nature normally work is the person making the claim must present the truth. Not the people reading it. Otherwise we would have to accept every whacky claim ever made or chase down all of the rabbit holes ever conceived. You say he is lying. So prove it. Or don’t say it in the first place... the internet has enough false claims without needing more. I’m certain your next post will be “Nah, I’ve seen it and if you are interested you find it.” Which in my mind at least will prove you were just saying your assumptions as facts. If I’m wrong, and David has lied, then I would love to find out. But every single time I’ve ever challenged anyone to prove he lied they always demur. It’s a pattern.

    Bitcoin's price has had 40 closes above the Long Term Down Trend Line and 6 Weekly Closes above that line. The 200 Day EMA will also cross that line tonight.

    While I agree with much of what you say, I still believe that at the end of the day, it's the network development which will ultimately impact the price. With the enormous amount of "pre-mined" tokens, it seems apparent to me that Ripple's xrp is going to be judged more on demonstrated utility vs purely upon speculation." XRP is going to have to prove itself as many are skeptical that either banks or governments are going to cede their control, and much of their power, to such a disruptor of the status quo. Once their global network has grown sufficiently, and has generated enough momentum, then the price will follow. This will increase the liquidity, which will in turn, as you say, accelerate adoption. At this point, it appears as if the market has decided to make Ripple's xrp prove its utility.

    As usual, when asked for evidence they have none. That bit about cancer is not the point... you are claiming he is badmouthing Bitcoin (that tweet wasn’t btw) while secretly accumulating it. But as usual.... no evidence of that even though you have multiple times claimed to know the wallets. I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve seen someone’s half-digested vague tummy rumblings presented as ‘facts’.

    Maybe have a look at this page about ODL (it’s no longer called XRapid). https://ripple.com/ripplenet/on-demand-liquidity/ The escrow in a way doesn’t matter. So long as Ripple stick to their stated policy of only selling escrow OTC to institutions that want to use it in ODL then the demand will be low until ODL is running well and widely. So really you can forget about the escrow until things change significantly. To my mind the way that the non bull run price rises is threefold: Speculative rises as people realise it’s a growing thing demand increases as Market Makers want to hold a minimum stock in larger and larger amounts as volume grows. Possible institutional holding as part of a 1% portfolio stake in an emerging cryptoverse. Of those the last one is by far the biggest. But it’s dependent on the ODL volumes proving real world adoption. So far we are nowhere near that. Hopefully this year will improve as corridors open and begin real volumes. But really the more likely rise, and the likeliest soonest, is a Bitcoin led bull run.

    Actually although a lot of people say that, I’m not sure it’s correct. You see this everywhere too.... "Past performance is no guarantee of future results." I do not think there is the history enough in XRP to look at it in the same way that Bitcoins’ history can be looked at. Also if a rise happens it’s likely going to be firstly on a market wide bull run that nearly everyone is expecting. Back in 2017 we all though XRP was being independent, but with the benefit of hindsight it was merely a delayed reaction to the Bitcoin run. So in my opinion we will probably delay a start but then follow a BTC bull run, or if that doesn’t happen like so many expect, then eventually we might rise on utility. And given that essentially nothing in crypto so far has ever rising on utility (merely the hype and hope of future utility) there is no road map for how that rise will look. I would expect it to more resemble a successful company on the stock market than the hyperbolic crypto type rise. But no one really knows.

    If you do not like the facts as they stand, you are certainly welcome to go make up your own. The world’s financial system plays by rules that cannot be changed. The biggest rule is trust. If the financial players do not trust the currency, they will not hold or use it. Digital or Fiat. The US holds the most trust due to it’s position as a successful producer of wealth and steward of the world’s military power. If you cheat the system you will see that there are real teeth behind the currency. Mr. Garlinghouse and company have no power to control or enforce their currency. Perhaps you trust a stuffed suit from San Francisco to guard the world’s wealth, but most governments do not and will not. I reckon your new fact finding club is akin to disputing gravity. I’m sure you can find a set of new and pleasing facts that you and your buddies can believe. However your new knowledge will not change reality, and when you apply that new knowledge by taking a leap of faith, off of a tall building you will still hit the ground.

    I don’t think you read my post fully. I don’t think it will rise like a successful stock company until it’s gotten wide utility running. So saying it’s not now is not correct... it isn’t expected to yet.

    I'm not going to debate with you whether or not people were banned from there for having a respectable disagreement your biased view speaks for itself . I'm a man who doesn't like to bullsh!t around a topic I say it as it is just like in real life. I'm not one to appreciate those who turn around something. You preserve my comments as agressieve because they are direct and not sugarcoated with layers of bullsh!t to soften the message. I'm sorry we can not all be as superior in communication the way you are the narsisitic sarcastic I like to smell my own fart way.

    I don't follow his XRP transactions. Let Her Rip ask for his XRP address, so I have to search, I am pretty sure he has more than these address. From Chris Larson is known that he has hundreds of address, I don't know why you need that much address. The 0.000001 XRP are from Coil payments, he is not hiding his XRP transactions. He de-risk in XRP to invest in Ethereum and Bitcoin. Watch 0,23 At 0,28 I will add another address plus bonus is copy and paste a tutorial in tracking bitcoin transactions

    My idea also. This is a very lazy and dumb way of trying to hide something. Especially from the master of the ledger itself. But it's the only way of creating that image when you don't have acces to his account. I can start sending him and other founders a lot of scripted micro payments for days and then release an article or accusation that they are hiding their sells... left or right, fishy.

    I don't know his XRP address, I don't track his XRP address, i don't care what he is doing with his XRP Calling he get cancer every time he hear the word Bitcoin, but in the meantime secretly accumulate it and saying the opposite is mind blowing to me. He also has so many XRP address, which one do you need? If I have time I will find more address r3gRpQRDdu7pzPhM9nDmXMgskbJ6vwTDbB r9fVvKgMMPkBHQ3n28sifxi22zKphwkf8u rHzWtXTBrArrGoLDixQAgcSD2dBisM19fF

    I personally haven't seen anyone banned for presenting facts that were to factual but that is my perception. Mainly people derailing debate by putting agression and swearing in their tone of voice instead of sources/facts that got the warnings (and sometimes after way too long in some opinions), but if you have seen it then I'm sure it has. As said, even the moderators are fairly critical at the moment, but present facts and sources to why they are. So perhaps it changed compared to some years ago. Everybody has his own view and limits as to what is normal communication, Your first page of replies alone contains enough agression and ***** to see which form of communication you prefer. So I can imagine warnings may come as a surprise and seem unjustified in some worlds. But you don't need me to tell you that ofcourse.

    No sorry you have the wrong idea entirely. The whole concept of OnDemandLiquidity is that you don’t need the stockpile. It’s bought and sold on demand. Later on if the world starts going this way then you might find people stockpiling it for their future use. But that may never happen even if ODL goes ballistic.

    Ripple solves a settlement issue....You bank does not give you your funds until they settle from your employer. The employer sends funds over on Monday or Tuesday so they settle and are available for you by Friday. Some companies pay on Wednesday, which means those companies start the transfer on the Friday before the Wednesday. Reality is the time to settle/true is days in our current financial structure.... Ripple allows for settlement in Seconds, not days. So your company can choose to pay you sooner of hold their money longer.

    Idk if it's a fluke, but something's up this morning as the volume as seen on fiat leak has risen significantly, along with the price. A quick check of the crypto market reveals that while bitcoin is only up 2.5%, xrp is showing a 6.0% rise. After Ripple's pivot away from handling treasuries with ODL, there was a very significant drop in minute by minute volumes on fiat leak: typically much less than 100K/min. Currently, it's hovering just under or above 1million/min, which is a significant uptick. It's premature to say that this is a sustainable change, however, it might be an indication of either new corridors coming online, or of existing corridors ramping up remittances. My thoughts upon hearing Ripple's assessment that they'll have global coverage by this time next year, was that it might take that much more time to see significant price appreciation, but now I wonder if it won't ramp up before then. Obviously, I'm of the camp that believes that Ripple is making incredible progress, and that the current price will be meaningless over the long haul. As always, we'll see.....

    All those publications demonstrate one thing. Do the opposite of what all those publications are writing. It's like CNBC who is silent during a bullrun and start advising you how to buy XRP at the very top of a parabolic when whales started offloading. For the past years they have all been writing continuously that reversals are near, outbreaks are about to happen and yet markets kept tumbling. Since the beginning of 2020 all the media is writing that crypto (XRP especially) is dead, going lower and will never return and yet from technical standpoints the market is reversing. Don't follow mass media, and most of all not bitcoinist, cryptoslate and newsBTC. They are just tools to push retail where they want them to be. 1. Yes, every selling brings downward pressure, but not anymore in the magnitude they want you to believe. 2. Don't listen to retail investors, keep building partnerships behind the curtains, prepare the network and ODL and when the world is ready for it both technically as jurisdictionally it might just have a chance.

    I think Bitcoin is generally following a similar pattern to the last cycle which would put us a point the equivalent of Midish 2016. Expecting that Bitcoin Retakes the ATH sometime by the end of the year then start it's gradual run leading to a parabolic top in a year or so (12-16 months). XRP really only had one cycle - basically it seems that XRP has long periods of just flatlining followed by explosive growth. Just waiting on the explosive growth.

    If you are looking for a echo chamber I suggest you join the zerpening club. Those trolls you are referring to are investors who have been sceptical about the price and realistic about the expectation of xrp. All the way back when 99% of this forum was filled with tinfoil lunatics who thought xrp was going to $589 and looked down on anyone who weren't betting the farm on this asset. I have seen enough dot connecting from so called researchers and delusional cult members to know that ultimately it's just a waste of time. Why waste time on trying to connect dots in this highly manipulated market that's filled with fake news and false promises even from the CEO himself. All you can do is sit back and wait for another bullrun. The rest is a waste of time.

    Whelp, good luck on your adventure. Ripple is a private company and doesn't have to disclose anything. Many people have looked for facts before, but when they didn't find anything, the community declared they are all hidden behind non disclosure agreements. You get a lot of 'like minded individuals" together to research topics that lack clear facts and, well, your dot connecting won't be limited to the weekends. Every major religion has members who study their respective religion to look for "facts" that they can share with others. Despite many of these religions being in conflict with each other, these groups always feel successful. tldr: Without hard facts, cognitive bias will likely eventually over take this proposed group.

    AMZN: The price rose a few dollars each year. XRP: The coin is worth a few cents less each year. Somehow, the comparison with the Amazon share doesn't quite fit, does it? The wish seems to be father to this thought. I'm currently a little disappointed ofthe Ripple performance. I wonder what Ripple needs so many millions a quarter for. What are they doing with all the money? Is the x-border market really that interesting? Do the big players not earn more from the cooperation banking system than they could save with Ripple's solution? So the small banks remain. But I heard that you should Ripple pay a few thousand dollars a month ... is that really interesting for a small bank? Freed Liquidity : I (my business) now have to pay a fee to our bank for an excessively high account balance. Banks also have to pay fees to the central banks when they park money there. So is it really important to free up tied liquidity now? So: In the medium term, I am rather skeptical about Ripple's core business. So there remains the other market: apps, Xpring etc. Again, I can't see any business cases that could be successful in the medium term ... Maybe there will be progress and markets will accept solutions based on cypercoins, -tokens, -money... but at the moment I'm rather skeptical. Still Hodling .. but skeptical.
