    Hello Everyone. I'm Eri I'd like to study, learn and discuss the material shared by Bob on XRP, the XRP Ledger, etc. Please call me "Eri" which is the name I use in Japan because my given name has a "z", "b" and "th" which are sounds proven to be difficult for Japanese to pronounce. Eri is a shortened version, easy and common in this part of the world. I'm also known as: @sentosumosaba on twitter (sento = hot spring bath, sumo = I'm a serious fan, saba = a favorite sushi). My Youtube channel is: CryptoEri / I upload on average, 6X per week and have had an online presence in this XRP space for 14 mos primarily with an English speaking audience, however my reach is truly world-wide as shown in my google analytics. Women viewership is growing at a fast clip recently. I grew up in the SF Bay Area (California) and currently reside in Tokyo which has been my home for 16 years. I am able to translate the material / or PPT decks into Japanese and distribute to the Japanese XRP community by way of influencers whom I know online - both on the twitter and the Youtube platform. Tokyo: GMT+9 I'm hoping to be a team member in any capacity with a personal goal to grow the XRP holder base, increase investor awareness, and attract new users to the technology. In addition, I think it is important to dispel any mistruths people might have about Ripple & XRP that hinder its status in this ecosystem. Lastly, I love this space. .

    Paradox

    SEC and escrow

    The SEC doesn’t make rulings, their job is to “enforce” the existing securities law. In my personal opinion, if the SEC wanted to bring an enforcement action against Ripple regarding XRP (which would then leave it up to a court to provide the actual ruling), they would have done so already. Furthermore, public opinions or “guidance” provided by SEC does not constitute actual law. It is merely a statement of the agency’s position. Like any government agency, the SEC has limited resources at its disposal. Going after Ripple/XRP would not only be a very expensive endeavor, it is also not a clear cut and dry case from a securities law perspective. The SEC is much more likely to spend their resources going after ACTUAL scams and blatantly fraudulent ICOs etc.

    Today Galgitron posted a very interesting snapshot from his spreadsheet. I analyzed it quickly to give a better understanding of the numbers behind the chart. The main focus are: Remittances And Payments between: 20 - 1,500 XRP (6 - 500$) Medium Payments between: 1,500 - 15,000 XRP (500 - 5,000$) Multiple things are interesting: The increase for both segments began at the same time, around mid February (Some event may have happened to trigger such strong surges) The increases are proportionally similar, slightly stronger for small payments, which seems logical in regards to remittances There are twice more small payments of 500$ max than payments of 15,000$ max, which again seems logical (low value, high volume)

    Hello XRP Community! It's very rejoicing to see many familiar faces around! My name is: XRP Research Center. Please call me "RC" for easy reference. I'm also known as: @XRPCenter on twitter I am bilingual (Spanish/English) and I hope this is helpful to increase the reach of my learnings to the Spanish-speaking community. I'm currently in central daylight time (GMT -5). Sorry, but for personal reasons that I hate (lol) I'll have to remain anonymous. Nice to meet you all!

    Have you considered that perhaps your wife/girlfriend gets the last word because you invent and promote malicious rumours about people who have a right to a private life and then when you venom does not reach its target you revert to cheap misogynist diatribes about the personalities of women. How could any person stay quiet when they have to live with that sort of behaviour? There is a special place for losers like you in the Bitcoin Max community, you would find so many others who share your base behaviour there.

    @MemberBerry just for the record: - i’m not on Twitter, but I heard you blame your ban on me and @EcneitapLatnem. It wasn’t me and pretty sure nor did my brother reported you. You got there all by yourself I guess. - we aren’t “ underwater bagholders” dyor. My dca is way lower than todays price and already pulled out 3 times my original investment.

    xrp frozen?

    Alot of people hodl on to xrp because they think that it wil go through the roof some day, and let's say that xrp wil become worth 33 dollar. Then it has to go up with 1000% and that is not realistic but let's pretend that it would happen some day in the near future. Then there wil be thousants, when not, thens of thousants new milionares, so that would mean tens or even hundreds of billion dollars wil change owners. Now that doesn't look realistic to me, so what could be realistic then? Going up to maybe 5 dollars? Well that looks more realistic to me if it ever happens, but that won't make me a milionare and alot of people with me. So are we waiting/hodl for something that wil never happen? I remember how alot of "experts" said at the beginning of 2018 that by the end of the year xrp would/could go up to 5 dollars, 10 dollars, 50 dollars and even 100 dollars, and what happend? It took a dive to 33 cents. Well, i didn't stepped in when a xrp was just cents, but at 2 dollars a piece, and to break even again, xrp has to raise with 600% and then i still have not made a penny profit, so how many percent must it keep on rising to make a desent profit for the ones who stepped in at the wrong time like i did? It's almost the same as buying the game star citezen, and wait and wait until they finaly finished the game that is already 10 years going on and still not done, and then alot of people wil walk away to other games that work, and that's how i see crypto's. When nothing happens and a coin is froozen for a too long period, people wil get nervous, impatient and bored and walk away and look for something new. Xrp can have the tech they like, but people do not like playing the waiting game, specialy when you look at the other coins that do make progress and go up in vallue, so isn't xrp overhyped these days by the believers who swear that it wil go through the roof some day, and make hundreds of thousants of people a milionare over night? Well, maybe not overnight but within a few days/weeks? Well hodl is not that bad when you stepped in xrp when they were cent's, but it's sure stuppid to place all your bets on one horse, specialy this horse that did slide into the valley and got stuck there for months while the others found the lift that takes then up the hill again. Hodl? Sure! But the magic word is no longer hodl but spreading! And spreading is what i'm going to do, so i'm going to take a vast amount of my xrp's and smear them out over the top 6 coins, because they do move up while xrp is froozen. Adnd let's say that the others will drop and xrp raise, well, then you can always exchange your coins for xrp again, so i'm done with the over hyped xrp because some "experts" tell that it wil go through the roof, because i don't see that happen. 35% 45%. 200% 375%, that is what the other coins went up in the past 4 months, and i'm an idiot that play's the hodl game with a horse that seems to be in a sort of coma. Well, brain dead horses don't win races, so did i already mentioned that i'm done with betting on the same brain dead horse? Sure btc did go down from almost 20k back to 3,5k a while ago, but it did go up to 5k now, so it at least did something, and even the other coins in the top 6 made a stunning progress, so bye bye xrp, it was nice to have a nice stash, but i want my stash to grow and not become a shelf queen and collect dust and drop in vallue even more than it already did.

    @JannaOneTrick @galgitron These are great metrics, one aspect of Liquidity. I'm not sure if it is possible, but if fiat:XRP conversions could be tracked.. we could see 'liquidity depth per fiat", and that is the key metric. It should be growing in both number of fiat pairings, and depth per fiat, if the network's utility is growing. (Also #of orderbooks making a market for each fiat pair, this adds robustness) Can you track exchange-to-exchange transactions? Or Payment Channel claim TXs settling between exchanges?

    SEC and escrow

    There might not be a ruling on XRP for many years because as soon as the SEC makes a ruling, and this space is still in its infancy, such an early ruling if negative could have very negative effects on the growth of this space in the US, and if they make a positive ruling prematurely, there could subsequently be loopholes found that don't exist currently that allow legacy securities to be introduced legally in a sneaky way that's compliant with their ruling - my guess.

    "Vive la France!" He even went to Washington to try and talk sense into them. I'm glad he's as motivated as he is and I'm glad France has leadership willing to make a move. Having a country take the lead and start to enjoy the rewards is exactly what it will take to get other nations to make a move. And that will benefit all of us. Outstanding work @JannaOneTrick - you've been really crushing it lately.

    Hello everyone, I'm Sam, I live in Texas (CST Timezone) and have a US audience. I speak a bit of several languages but not enough to be fluent. I'm on Twitter @hameggsn and on YT at To The Lifeboats In my corporate days I had a job very similar to Bob's but in Telecom. I've also been an activist, a co-host on a nationally syndicated talk radio program, a farmer raising Pastured Chicken and sold at the Dallas Farmers Market, and a videographer. I have a lot of people who appreciate me breaking down the more complex/technical aspects of XRP adoption to help them understand why it's important and the big picture of what may be happening.

    Yeah, in regular stocks, when a CEO makes promises and it doesn't materializes the stock price falls and people get angry. Heck Nvidia even got sued because they said the crypto crash would not effect their stock price and it did. When the CEO says "at least 1 large bank will use XRP by the end of 2018" and now in the middle of 2019, it still hasn't happen. Its perfectly reasonable that people start asking questions.

    xrp frozen?

    The 100% conviction that XRP is the most rational decision, has the biggest ecosystem, continues to grow the fastest and has the most technological progress is utterly stupid. I remember I posted (link below) about RaiBlocks (Nano) back in December 2017 when both XRP and Nano were $0.30 - 0.40 and was told I was stupid for investing in Nano when Ripple had tons of partnerships, best tech, network effect, etc. XRP went to $3 from $0.30 and Nano went to $34. I made over $100K with just a small percentage of my crypto portfolio allocated. In 2019, the cryptosphere is much different from 2013-2015 when Ripple might have been the only player in the space trying to make big moves and partnerships. Bianance during 2018 made over $500 Million in profits while Ripple was laying off employees. They have ambitious plans for BNB and not just a token to pay fees. Do some research. Look by their CEO and his background and compare him to Brad Garlinghouse who basically did nothing at AOL and Yahoo. Besides Binance, you also have Ravencoin which is backed by a billionaire and founder of Overstock.com and the token is going to be an integral part of the tZero platform for STOs. BAT also has ambitious plans. Then there is Stellar which has an established tech company behind it and expanding their network. The idea that XRP is the only game in town, the largest player, has the best tech, biggest ecosystem is utter cope and burying your head in the sand. Diversify. It's so early in the crypto game, it's going to take 10 years to see who the real winners are.

    Hello Study Group, Scott here from Love For Crypto, I Run the LFC Instagram and Facebook pages @LoveForCrypto17 and also add daily videos regarding DLT, IoV, IoT and my general thoughts on where it's going to YouTube. I can also be reached on Twitter @ScottyPMedia We at Love For Crypto are hoping to reach English speaking people online globally and are looking to set up events locally to start with. Being in the UK we're currently on BST (British Summer Time GMT -1) I would love to be part of regional Teams and sharing the knowledge through different visions. Super Excited about this.

    Although I believe i am well versed in the conceptualisation of dlt and related software i would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with a well versed XRPL developer and gain some hands on experience. I go by OZ Crypto. You can refer to me as OZ. I'm also known as Oz Crypto on YouTube and @OZCRYPTO2 on twitter. I only speak English Australian english at that. G'day, mate, shielas, that's not a knife this is a knife all the standards. I am in Sydney so operate on AEST i am hoping to be able to share the knowledge I gain with youtube and the world.

    Chat: [Study Group] Introduce Yourselves

    Hi! I'm Bob. I'd like to present and discuss some material I have on XRP, the XRP Ledger, "rippling" payments, financial systems, money, blockchains and more. I hope you will bring your personal experience to the discussion so I can learn about new business and monetary needs. We can then discuss how best to apply "rippling" technologies to help solve those problems. My name is: Bob Way. Please call me "Bob" rather than Mr. Way. I'm also known as: @bob_way on twitter I am monolingual (English only) and tend to bias my discussion with Americanisms. I'm hoping y'all can help fix that. I'm currently in Houston, TX on central daylight time (GMT -5) I'm hoping to travel to meet other regional teams, but I'm too flaky for you to count on as an actual team member.

    SEC and escrow

    Something cannot be a security and a currency at the same time. A digital currency without an active operating utility network is, effectively, a currency without an actual country backing it up. Until that point all anyone has to go on is the promise of a company telling you there's a home country for a currency being built - it's coming soon but is not here yet. Until there is a standing stable ecosystem for utility and trade a digital asset remains a security. As for the escrow, I agree with the assessment SPQR has come up with which is that there is nothing to stop Ripple from selling their escrow in advance through negotiated futures contracts and that much of it has already been reserved in this way at a lucrative price. The escrow then provides custodial security until Polysign is fully operational. Has nothing whatsoever to do with the SEC who are waiting for network effects to reach an as yet undetermined threshold before declaring it as much a currency as BTC or ETH. My guess is that it will take a few more corridor announcements before that happens, but perhaps not many more if they carry significant volumes.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Bought more Bitcoin yesterday. This is just too juicy to ignore. I'd be buying XRP with both hands but I'm a New York resident and New York (the center and defender of the old dying system and the worst Governor ever) has made it nearly impossible to buy XRP. For those that don't know. NY residents can't buy XRP through Coinbase and Bittrex just stopped NY residents from trading anything last week. I'm thinking of moving to Connecticut just to buy XRP.

    Well, I suggest people here to invest other coins, not only XRP, XRP price is always poor performance and always the last pumped. Recently when other coins raising, XRP is on hold, when XRP start raising , the other coins start dumping , XRP followed and stopped raising, XRP is stuck here.

    I took a hardware certification course in middle school in the 90s in which my teacher -- a very bright man -- explained to us what bits & bytes were. He then went on to talk about Kilobytes, Megabytes, & Gigabytes. He then paused for a second and said, "I'm going to keep going a bit more but you should know this is all theoretical at this point. You will NEVER encounter a situation in real life where you'll need to worry about Terabytes, Petabytes, etc..." I think of this often as a reminder to never say never when Moore's Law, inflation, & time are all hard at work trying to prove you wrong.
