  1. @XrpdudeThe cycles never play out identical to the previous ones, there are always variations. Also the cycle may change or extend dramatically, but that remains to be seen. The last few days have spooked the market but as far as I'm concerned nothing haven't changed anything. I know a lot of people are panicked by the red candles the last few days but I am not one of them. I've made a few buys and plan to make more adding to my stack. BTC & LTC. XRP is a bargain right now.

  2. This is definitely an usual move by Ripple ... for any company, let alone a company that isn't publicly traded, and something I've never heard of for a 'startup' ... “Even after doing this repurchase, we have over a billion dollars in cash." Garlinhouse said. According to this report, Ripple secured funding at a $10B valuation in 2019, and has bought back at a $15B valuation. The 50% gain and buyback likely soothed any bad blood from Tetragon's (relatively) recent court actions. Very interesting. On a side note, it's good to know they can keep up the good fight with the SEC.

  3. Most often when ppl talk of Ripple burning its allotment of XRP they wrap it around this idea that it will "create a healthier ecosystem", but what they really mean is that they want the price of XRP to go up to "increase the value of their personal investment" in XRP. Ripple's use case/business proposition for its allocation of XRP is not the same as XDC, HBAR, Stellar, or any other crypto asset. You say not to compare the XLM or DOGE burn to an XRP burn, but why not? Especially in regards to XLM. XLM and XRP are essentially two peas from the same pod. Yeah, the protocols may have been tweaked here and there, but there's no closer comparator to better gauge what a XRP burn would look like than XLM. Burning any digital asset doesn't do jack for price or ecosystem, utilization does. The whole point of Ripple escrowing its entire supply of XRP was to do just what you want in creating a healthier XRP ecosystem. They did so that the market wouldn't fear that they would dump unlimited amounts of XRP on exchanges. Ripple has always stated that XRP is strategic to its business and they will continue to build products and services like ODL and LoC that utilizes XRP. The key differentiator here is building the infrastructure/market for these XRP-based solutions and products (i.e. utility). This takes TIME as there are many factors to consider (i.e. regulations, compliance, liquidity, etc.) Ripple has been racking up partnerships/collaborations and educating global regulators for the past 10 years to create a marketplace and a flourishing ecosystem for XRP.

  5. Note: the judge made her judgement within a day of Ripple's response and she gave SEC the very minimum she had to remain fair to both sides; she is not wasting time herself, and she knows her prey are dishonest and slippery. She is nailing SEC to the floor, and also creating a situation where SEC will be brought to the negotiating table sooner rather than later. She is on our side, you can smell it.

  7. It’s very possible Hinman and others at the SEC violated THE SHERMAN ACT. This is part of the investigation that Ripple is doing to uncover the violations. I wouldn’t be surprised if the results get turned over to the FBI...

  8. TLDR: This is not a bug, it's a feature. https://xrpl.org/consensus.html#calculate-and-share-validations If you have constructive feedback beyond "it should be different" (sure, it would be nice to have a globally synced clock available - just please point to some implementations or papers in byzantine fault tolerant scenarios instead of simply referring to "databases") it would be great to read. Otherwise I hope that the explanation above clears up the misconceptions you apparently had about transaction ordering (it is _not_ based on time stamps at all).

  9. In my experience, a company buys its own shares because their analysis shows that to be the most profitable return for their money given all of the other investment opportunities in different company's stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, etc. Like @NMNR said, extremely bullish. The message between the lines is: Dear SEC, Hold my beer, the rest of the world is calling. Regards, Ripple

  10. I want to believe that Netburn is being mote cautious as her decisions are pretty much going to set precedence for the entire crypto market. I'm frustrated as hell, but as a professional, if your name is associated with potentially decimating an industry if you get it wrong then its your entire reputation down the drain. I'm still convinced that she is smart enough to know what game is being played and it just seeing how it pans out. Basically, she knows its game over but wanting the SEC use all its quarters.

  12. Save's you jumping around:- Taken from John Deaton's Twitter thread:- On Dec. 13, 2017, Hinman had a meeting with Joseph Lubin from Ethereum & ConsenSys and lawyers from Sullivan & Cromwell (Clayton’s law firm); The next day, Dec. 14, 2017, Matt Corva of Consensys (w/ lawyers from Sullivan & Cromwell) stated that they were building an alliance with the SEC; Six weeks later, on Jan. 25, 2018, Clayton meets with Chris Dixon and Andreesen & Horowitz of a16z and instructs him to put together a group w/in the industry and write up a memo. Perkins Coie, a member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, led this group of Ether investors; On Mar. 26, 2018, Attorney Lowell Ness of Perkins Coie sent Hinman a Memo and Safe Harbor Proposal. The only Crypto asset mentioned in the Safe Harbor is ETH; Two days later, Mar. 28, 2018, Ether investors meet secretly w/Hinman asking for a regulatory free pass from the SEC; On April 23, 2018, the SEC meets AGAIN with Lubin & Consensys. On May 12, 2018, Lubin stated that he was: “making great strides with regulators.” On May 24, 2018, Lubin claimed he could issue tokens in ways detailed in Hinman’s speech - which hasn’t been delivered yet! On June 8, 2018, Consensys meets w/ the SEC AGAIN. Lubin commented how the market needed the SEC to scare some projects away. SIX DAYS LATER, on June 14, 2018, Hinman gave his speech and declared that ongoing sales of Ether were NOT in violation of U.S. securities laws. Incredibly, he then goes on CNBC w/Bob Pisani and says “WE” (at the SEC): “don’t see a 3rd party promoter when looking at Ether.” For that statement to be truthful, he must’ve been blindfolded during all his meetings w/ the co-founder of Ethereum and the Founder of Consensys!

  13. Thank God for John Deaton. I remember some made fun at the fact his practice is not involved with securities law. He was the underdog. I absolutely love when the underdog that some made fun of proves to be exactly what tens of thousands needed inorder to fight, and win. We will win. He is masterful. He knows when to strike, and knows when to sit back during interviews. We don't need a lawyer who is prim and proper and approaches things with incredible caution. We need a John Deaton who adds emotion when necessary to strike at the heart of the human consciousness within this case. When the SEC failed us, then came John Deaton. A former marine. A testimony and testament that there is still hope for the USA.

  14. Bitcoin and the broader crypto market has been getting increasingly more correlated to the US equities market (specifically the S&P 500) to the extent that there is now a likely contagion risk. The risk isn’t that equities market falling causes crypto to fall. No one care about the crypto market. The risk is about the other way around. S&P 500(SPX) I think we will recover a bit after today’s expiry but the overall direction in the medium term is set for the SPX. It’s time to get a hedge. Bull/bear markets are more about market confidence than anything inherent to the economy. There is a hypothesis that with midterms looming, it is unlikely that the markets will be allowed to crash, and that if they do, they’ll be supported with additional QE. But that’s not guaranteed because inflation is a factor now. Crypto First, it is likely to follow SPX with high volatility. But crypto it also has its own problems around climate change, regulation, etc. The only way for crypto to decouple is regulation and reduced manipulation. That’s not easy with its decentralised nature and world wide markets. Finally This is a BTC thread but wanted to clarify that I’m still bullish for XRP. It might fall, but won’t fall by much because it didn’t go up by much relative to rest of crypto either. And if the regulatory clarity comes, it’ll go up that much more, and I also think XRP’s clarity can pull up the rest of the market too. I’ll go a step beyond that. If XRP secondary sales are given the green signal in the US, we will start to see a lot of XRP pairs. If the signal is broad in scope regarding secondary sales of crypto in general, then XRP will join the big two in terms of liquidity. But if the green signal is narrow in scope to some unique circumstances of XRP, we will see liquidity start to shift from ETH and BTC pairs to XRP.

  15. During a downturn like this I tend to look away from the price, an approach that has served me well in the past. If I see the price is very low then I try to find a way to buy some more, but in general I just stay quiet. Crypto winter is a time for hibernating. However it seems the smartest among us tend to use this time to sniff around for other opportunities. For example, our resident whale @brianwalden has his fingers in many pies, as do a lot of you I'm sure, you just don't talk about it. So in hoping to follow along with this approach, I am messing around with Songbird Finance and using spreadsheets and everything like I'm some bigshot on wallstreet or something. I started off real safe: those single-sided farm pool things. Basically this is the kiddie pool. You lose nothing, but you also gain relatively little. FF has started to add the APY onto the UI; not all of them are there but the lowest yield single pool (CAND) is currently at 143% APY. Compare to the SFIN/CAND LP which is at 554% APY. So I started off in the kiddie pool but quickly got bored. My stacks are not big but they are also not so small as to make the whole exercise futile, so I wanted to see if I could get some real passive income on the go. I was doing spreadsheets and trying to figure out how much this would all compound to (I was originally compounding twice a day, now once a day, at my level the difference is not huge but it ends up being a whole lot of transactions every time regardless) and no doubt making hideous errors in calculations. I decided to start providing liquidity. I saw a strat on Twitter a guy was using: being in LPs, then claiming and swapping the SFIN 50/50 with something else then putting that into the LP, thereby increasing your LP tokens. Also doing a similar thing with the SGB delegation rewards. Seemed like a simple strat and one I could understand so I'm following it. Reward rates for LP tokens are about 4 times as much as single-sided pools, and the SFIN supply is also bigger. I'm not sure but I also believe the overall pools are much larger on the single-sided, because they are the risk-free ones. It is hard for me to calculate all that but it makes sense intuitively. So now my rewards are much better but I am exposed to IP which I still don't fully understand but I figure is worth the risk. I haven't put all or even most of my SGB into the LPs because I don't fully understand IP and I like my SGB, I would like to know very simply what price it is by looking at the chart. If (when) SGB and Flare really get going, I would like to know about it. I am guessing that the reward rates will continue to decline, as they have done with SGB. As more people come in. However, considering that the rate of rewards means the SFIN is distributed within less than a year, that doesn't give people much time. So I am wondering if the 'compounding' of rewards will really only help to maintain one's share of the overall pool, which is not bad but not the same as compounding in the traditional sense. Anyway this has been a rambling post but I just wanted to share some thoughts. I haven't been following the troubles with the Flare loans platform, in fact Mickey and Patty put a vid about it up today, and I haven't been in it so I haven't been negatively affected. My experience so far with FF has been smooth and the platform performs pretty well considering there must be so many moving parts and so many people doing stuff all the time. I can really see how it boosts the amount of activity on the network, which is great. I also think prices of everything will recover, including SFIN and EXFI. Price downturns like this are scary but as I said in the beginning, there are two ways to deal with it: look away from the price and work on some other areas. I'm not saying I'm successful at the second one but I'm giving it a go and it is also satisfying to see 'number go up' even if it is 0.00000000001 to 0.00000000002. Good luck all.

  16. Brad just confirmed that this was just Series C shares. Definitely about booting Tetragon off the board I think. SBI also may have participated in that round so that’s a nice bonus for them. Of course they must also be holding older and more valuable equity.

What's so hard about that? I don't know why you guys are making it so complicated.

Once it smooths out, I might acquire a few of their tokens and see how this plays out. I will update this top post with any interesting discoveries or observations Main site: https://onxrp.com/ From their twitter account right at the launch moment: Update: Using Chrome and XUMM worked eventually, Brave failed to popup the QR code to connect wallet, Chrome took a few tries. With a little patience and retires, I was able to acquire my gamble purchase of this new token - hopefully it won't be 900% lower tomorrow LOL Remember - Gamble with only the zerps you can afford to LOSE

  23. Here's a rambler for ya' ... Well, I'm coming to understand that I'm going to have to track several things that I didn't before. One is obviously with regards to exposure to IL.( I have zero idea what I put in nor at what prices :-S) The other is delegation rewards. I think for now, I'll be pulling my WSGB out of Flare Finance on Wednesdays, and putting it back in on Friday morning. At least until I can rememeber/learn/find the exact time FTSO delegations are marked on Thursdays ... it is Thursdays, right? This simple chart (using today's numbers) ranks for me the highest rate of SFIN return per unit. Granted with the pairs (LP), it's actually per multiple units, ... and that all units aren't value equivalent .... but the disparity is so great that it seems a no brainer to be able to roughly guesstimate when they are to your advantage and when they're not. In the end, the math is rigged in every way to get you to separate from your SGB or WSGB for a FF token. For example: trading your WSGB for CAND at today's price earns 3 to 4 times higher SFIN return for staking CAND then it would for simply staking WSGB. The two I've focused on is 1.) SFIN to SFIN (obviously) followed by 3.) EXFI/CAND to SFIN .... I traded just enough SGB to get just enough CAND to pair with the EXFI was I given. No intention on buying any EXFI. Putting SFIN in 2.) is seems inefficient so long as 1.) is an option. The rest I keep in WSGB so I can more easily move it about and potentially deploy in other future Songbird projects. So far, I've managed to gain a whopping .0161 SFIN :-S Somebody STOP me! (-Jim Carry, The Mask)

  24. It need not be 10K. It might also be based on the tranche of equity that they have access to. Sometimes, for popular companies, there is a market for those secondary markets (tertiary?) that you can participate in bulk. Equity Zen calls these “Express Deals” as opposed to “Standard Deals”. For example, right now someone who has $130000 can buy 2500 Class A Preferred Ripple Stock for $52 each, at an implied valuation of $9.4B. I’d guess that this is someone who participated in a previous offering at a lower valuation. Given today’s valuation of $15B, someone with that much money can make a table profit of 60%. The risk is that you don’t know when the company would go public. Or if it would go public. You don’t know if the company’s valuation goes down after you buy into a secondary market. You may not be able to get rid of your investment. So the potential gains should be balanced against that risk, even if you can afford it. These are illiquid investments.

  26. Have we seen the low for Bitcoin in this sell off? We've certainly seen a lot of panic. Hashrate is high. Exchange balances are low. https://cointelegraph.com/news/stop-panic-selling-bitcoin-whales-bag-spare-btc-as-exchange-balances-fall Articles are saying that the selling is coming from short term holders that bought in recently. Basically FOMO'ing in then getting spooked and selling. This is the reason a lot of people lose money in a Crypto Bull Cycle. And this is the reason Bull cycles are much more stressful than Bear Cycles. I've warned about this multiple times. If you sold during this down turn you sold to smart money - so that either makes you "smarter money" or something else.

  27. I agree there might be an element of crossing her Ts and dotting her Is, but I think there is a bigger elephant in the room and Judge Netburn has swung a blinder on SEC. She has let SEC put more arguments into court that confirm the contradictions at the heart of their evidence. By putting in more details about their contradictory arguments the SEC are screwing up their own case and forcing themselves further and further down a blind ally. This order by Netburn accelerated the settlement negotiations because after this the SEC have nowhere to go other than to capitulate.

  28. At some point, the rest of the world won't care about the USA, and it's $$$'s. BANKS are all about making money... saving money = making money. So Ripplenet and XRP are the solution to that problem, when it comes to many of their cross border payment issues. ODL is the solution and America had better get with it, because profit is the only thing that really matters to the Global banking cartel.

  29. This will run because of Empowerment Oversight have their teeth into it. I expect Deaton will stop when clarity is given to XRP holders, but maybe he will move on to help Empowerment Oversight continue with their investigation. As Deaton points out Hinman outright contradicts himself He had been writing the speech with the help of Consensys and was being paid 15 million by Thatcher Simpson who were heavily into working with and profiting from the work of the Eth Foundation and then he retired and went back to working with Simpson Thatcher who had made a fortune from decisions he made at SEC

  30. It's called abusing one's position, how many at the SEC were involved, how many longed ETH, how many shorted XRP. This is a scandal and JC / BH and GG are at the heart of it. These are the people paid for by taxpayers to protect them, from exactly these types of crimes The ETH / BTC free pass, was pure BS, a bunch of SEC officials along with some at ETH + JP Morgan and with GG, you can add Goldman Sachs to the list, along with some politicians etc, all conspired to make themselves richer at the expense of XRP holders, whilst screwing over Ripple and the broader crypto industry. This is corruption of the highest order and shows that the little people are just collateral damage and GG still has the nerve to carry this on, like nothing is happening. He obviously thinks he's untouchable, well we will see. Hey GG social media is here and most of us don't watch CNBC, we listen to truth tellers. It isn't the 80's or 90's any more, you can't hide from the XRP social media truth movement, 100's of thousands of us, have YOU GG, in our cross-hairs.

  31. There is an issue with chronologic ordering because blockchain is all public. Also the 'pending tx pool' (in ethereum sometimes called the darkpool/forest) is visible for everyone. What we are seeing now in Ethereum is that this dark pool is exploited by 'searchers', looking for an opportunity where they place a trade just in front of another trade, or right behind, or sandwich, several possibilities exists to scr*w with some of the 'honoust' transactions waiting to be included in the next block. The ultimate beneficials are the miners, because they can determine which transactions are added and in which order to the next block. As matter of fact, they are now requesting a 'bribe' from the searchers so that their transactions are included. As you can imagine, this drives in the end all the profitability to the miners. The searchers being the puppets of the miners, getting some crumbs of the leftover profit. This is what they call MEV: Miner Extractable Value. XRPLedger does it different. First of all, not 1 miner decides on the (order of) transactions in a block, but all validators (34 currently) simultaneously. There is no cheating possible, everyone must agree on which transactions are included and in which order they are included. The order, as explained earlier, made as random as practically possible. This gives a system that, at least in my view, is more honest than e.g. the ethereum system. A system where incoming transactions are taken based on time would be maybe even more honest, but that is practically very difficult to achieve in a decentralized world, as not all nodes in a blockchain have the same time, network might be slow in certain parts of the network, etc..

  38. But you are also assuming a directional move here. That you will eventually make a profit because it’ll go to $2. I get that you are trying to make a specific point and that this is hypothetical, but inherent to that is the risk you are discounting. Anytime I sell, I need it to draw down 50% at least to just break even. And if my personal goal were $2 and I simply sell 10k at $2, I’ll not only make 10x profits, I’ll probably be paying a lot less taxes (max 25%) because by then it would be long term gains, instead of 45% for every trade. Your philosophy does work to an extent in well regulated market. And it is absolutely the right thing to do to take profits. But in an irrational market with no signal and 100% manipulation, it only works until it doesn’t. And I think this is the big difference in how you and I approach crypto. I made it clear that I want to own XRP. I know that’s a mindset that’s different but I just don’t trade. You must have seen my post on possible buy levels at 0.72, 0.61, 0.45 etc. So it’s not a matter of not understanding buying and selling opportunities. And I’ve made my share of profits and added to my stash over the years. I bought a sizeable amount of ETH at $7 and BTC at $623 But investment approach must change as new information comes to fore. And I now have a significant exposure to XRP. May be I was too early to exit BTC and ETH but time will tell. I’m happy with my decisions. I have a busy day job that pays me quite well. I invest in assets that are undervalued, has excellent management and fundamentals. In fact XRP is a big outlier in my philosophy because it doesn’t have any inherent cash flows. But these are early days and I am patient. As another example of my investments - I’ve mentioned it before somewhere in here, but I also have a small exposure to TZEROP. I’m pretty sure no one here has invested in it. But TZEROP has one goal - same day securities settlement instead of T+2 (hence T “Zero”). Also excellent management and a good use case. And it pays dividends. When price is pure manipulation, thinking 50% discount is “cheap” is dangerous. No such thing as “cheap” in crypto. Not until there are sensible regulations. But that day will come.

  39. Bitcoin's price is still trying to find a bottom. Yesterday was pretty high volume for a Saturday and today's volume is shaping up to be pretty high for a Sunday. So it might be leveling out here. I know people get anxious when the price drops and I understand the concerns. If you have been watching the Bitcoin market for any length of time you have seen that Bitcoin's price can be Volatile (it goes up and down often and by relatively a lot) especially when compared to other markets. Buying bitcoin at this stage is not for everyone. If the price swings are too much for you, you might be over invested in Crypto or you might want to consider putting your money elsewhere - stocks, bonds, cash. Make your own decisions, I'm not telling anyone what to do, I am letting people know what I am doing. Today I'm buying more. I'll be buying either Bitcoin or Litecoin. I don't have access to buying XRP or I would definitely be buying more XRP.

  40. Jeremy Hogan very much taking the same line as Ripley earlier; It might not be what is in the documents so much as that the SEC are terrified of this precedent for future cases. If SEC hands over internal docs and then loses, the whole world will pile in with this tactic every time SC tried to sue anyone. It is interesting how so many commentators are seeing this moment as a key moment, the moment SEC admitted they had lost the case. SEC are into damage control. I am not suggesting this case will end anytime soon. Ripple are probably willing to pay a fine, but not in the mood to stop the case without complete clarity.

Ripple and the judge, hand over the documents, NO, NO, NO, NO, good luck you F'ing banking crony crooks. This is turning into a complete mockery of the so-called American justice system.

GG and his puppet masters had better get the message, keep this up and THEY will be removed via a very large scale, global democratic process.
