    A short reminder

    As you may have noticed: there are no markets, anymore as central banks are massively intervening and buying everything in order to prevent a major crisis and thereby also a healthy correction, unfortunately. This has, by the way, been predicted around 20-30 years ago by Paul C. Martin (Debitism) [1] and is now recogniced by different financial analysts (e.g. Leonhard Fischer who said in an interview that the middle class is the loser of this game). In short, the debitistic dilemma means that states must at some point fail in their own pre-financing, which forces them to expand permanently. It is now impossible to raise interest rates without triggering a crisis at the same time. Because of this situation, central banks are trying to save everyone by simply buying up everything the market can offer. Companies can issue bonds directly to the FED and do what they want with the money - even speculate on the stock market. The same applies to the Treasury's loans to companies - the money is not earmarked for a specific purpose. As of October 1, the whales (banks) are allowed to gamble again - with the customers' deposits (i.e. the cash holdings of their customers). The Volcker Rule, which was introduced to prevent another financial crisis, will now be abolished again. JPMorgan expects the central banks to expand the monetary base by another $15 trillion by mid 2021. The top 10% of the wealthy take advantage of this situation by taking out loans at favourable rates and jumping on this bandwagon. As a result, share prices are also rising contrary to any expectations of returns in the real economy (especially due to the collapse in orders, which has been exacerbated by the Corona crisis). Take a look at the share value of Tesla, for example. Really? Then I don't know what the situation in the USA looks like, but here in Germany there is a massive real estate bubble and there is also massive demand for precious metals (especially gold), which in some cases leads to physical delivery problems. The one who has nothing (the lower class) cannot invest, but also loses nothing, since he has nothing to lose from the outset. Those who are hit hardest belong to the middle class: blue-collar workers, white-collar workers. Basically everyone who has some assets, but not enough to get cheap loans and to be able to compensate for any losses. It is precisely this class that finances the state and is currently being fleeced. As they are now subject to the highest taxation in the world in Germany (we are talking about up to 42% income tax plus health, social and nursing care insurance) and at the same time the water is being dug out of them, a flight abroad began. On top of that, they spend about 80 billion euros (conservatively estimated) annually here for so-called "refugees" who cannot be integrated into the labour market. And the trend is rising. In my opinion, it is only a matter of time before the whole thing implodes - worldwide. But until then, the party goes on. At the moment, a turnaround is looming with regard to the USD/EUR exchange rate. This is likely to be due on the one hand to the aforementioned glut of money and on the other to the planned EU debt union. The corresponding chart looks like this: What is left over when currencies are diluted and stocks, real estate and precious metals are pushed to unprecedented heights? Government bonds, which are considered safe, are becoming increasingly risky and do not generate returns anyway. So sooner or later, cryptos will also rise to new highs. On the one hand, because it allows you to hide capital and move it out of the country. On the other hand, because here you find another possibility to diversify your assets and the crypto market has corrected itself "healthy" since about 2 years. Regarding XRP in particular, I can only say that I do not understand their strategy at the moment and honestly wonder why they have not made the big breakthrough yet. I also don't know what is really true about the rumor that they want to create an additional currency anchor together with central banks. I haven't paid enough attention to this in recent months. The XRP chart itself has not changed, however, as the channel boundaries have so far been adhered to. This means that it still points to a crazy outbreak around September. I'm curious, but also cautious, to make another really big entry now (got my stash) - just because of the current dangerous world situation. The best advice is probably to diversify your assets as much as possible and to write off life and pension insurance in your mind. [1] Prophecy of Dr. Paul C. Martin 1987, translated from German: Today is the worldwide day of last-resort lending as described by the English economist Walter Bagehot in the 19th century: All countries will be liable for all countries, all central banks for all central banks, including the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and many other international institutions. And all countries will stand for all banks, however, all central banks will also face the music for all countries, and all countries for all central banks. All, all, all will be there for all, all, all. And all know, that nothing must happen to anybody, since then it would happen to all of them. Original quote in German: "Heute ist weltweit Bagehot total: Alle Staaten werden für alle Staaten, alle Notenbanken für alle Notenbanken haften, einschließlich Währungsfonds und Weltbank und vielen anderen internationalen Institutionen. Und alle Staaten werden für alle Banken geradestehen, aber auch alle Notenbanken für alle Staaten und alle Staaten für alle Notenbanken. Alle, alle, alle werden für alle, alle, alle dasein. Und alle wissen, dass keinem von allen etwas passieren darf, weil dann allen etwas zustößt."

    Bitcoin's price is above the short term down trend which provided support. The Bollinger Bands continue to tighten to levels not seen since March 2019. Still waiting on our big move. @Milly238 When the whole crypto market starts going up I would think XRP will participate. XRP is certainly due. I would expect XRP take out it's ATH and then some prior to going on a parbolic run.

    If there is anything that I'm Not worried about, it's Ripple and XRP. I've watched them from the first time @JoelKatz referenced my comment about the Utility Value of XRP on the 'official forum' in 2013. I've seen both the company, and the service maturation process unfold. It was a global scale mission from the beginning, which is d*mn near impossible, absolutely impossible in finance... yet here we are, continuing to put one foot in front of the other in route to mission success, with many steps behind us. I may never sell my XRP, if I can lend it out. Now I'm trying to get Ripple Inc shares. We are watching the formation of a "dent in the universe". A Ripple, like a gravitational wave moving across the fabric of time space in finance. It's a one way road, there is no SWIFT turnaround.

    Bitcoins price has spent 43 Days above the Long Term Down Trend Line, and Today is the second day above the Short Term Down Trend Line. These lines should support for any possible down turns which I doubt are coming. Looks like the most likely scenario is sideways and up price action. XRP's recent move is encouraging.

    Bitcoin's price turned positive by the end of the day yesterday to put the price above the Short Term Downtrend, which it then fell below today. The price is basically following the Short Term Down Trend lower since June 1st. The price is also at the 50 Day EMA which has been providing some support. Bollinger Bands have flattened out. Waiting on the general up trend to start.

    Codius: The contracts run on independent hosts and not on the underlying blockchain or cryptographic network, similar to traditional hosting. This is because the architecture of a cryptographic network is complicated enough without throwing programmability into the mix. Codius resides on the application layer to allow contracts and dApps to interface with other blockchains, legacy systems, other internet services provider, etc. With the Interledger Protocol the primary obstacle of smart contracts  (i.e. interoperability)  was remedied giving Codius the ability to interact with any service or API, scale infinitely, and read or write to any blockchain like Ethereum, Bitcoin, etc. Codius is not tied to any one currency it can settle via any "value" designation. Codius has two components: the contract portion and a smart oracle. Having both allows its users to account for multiple variables and random outcomes (via the oracle) that can alter the outcome of the specified contract. Not tied to one particular language like Ethereum (i.e. Solidity), but allows users to utilize any programming language they choose (i.e. Java, JavaScript, Solidity, etc.) Because Codius platform resides outside of the blockchain or cryptographic network, it can do something that other contract platforms (i.e. Ethereum) can't do, and that is that it can keep secrets.

    A short reminder

    In my view, this is a clash of two paradigms. On the one hand, we have the conservatives who want to preserve the system structure, especially legal security & future security (for their own children) - overall social cohesion. They know from their experience that you have to fight and pay for it and that you cannot replace and ignore competence by quotas - they know personal responsibility. On the other hand, there are the moralists and opponents of the system who adhere to a fantastic world view in which everyone feels comfortable, everyone is helped, conflicts do not exist and in which everything somehow seems to be for free. By this I mean above all Marxists (among them climate activists, feminists, antifa, BLM, humanists and meanwhile also the majority of so-called journalists, who think they have an educational mission instead of informing neutrally), who can do nothing but destroy, parasitize, make demands, feel insulted. They want to abolish the state, the constitutional state and, very recently, the police. They want racial and gender discrimination against whites and men and disguise this as quotas for POC and women. They want the unconditional basic income and do not recognise that this too must be paid. They rebel against alleged oppression and accept the collapse of society in return. They want to create a new world - a world without borders, without individualism, in which everyone can be everything and define anything at will. They want (once again) to create a new type of human being for world communism. We know the results of such projects well enough. My problem here is not knowing which of all these people is really smart

Bollinger Bands have flattened out and continue to tighten (slightly). Break out is coming. Can it last like this for another 5 days?? I doubt it.

    XRP displaying a little strength after getting rejected by the 200 day moving average. Possibly forming a bull flag to retest the 200MA. A daily close above that line would signal a good entry at least for a short term play. Some of the other majors like ETH are setting up nicely for entries but not quite there yet.

    XRP is approaching the 200 day moving average which has served as pretty stiff resistance during this downturn with only a few short breaks above. Would be a strong buy signal if we get a daily candle close above. On a much longer view, using the logarithmic chart, I would like to see XRP breach the huge downtrend line and this would signal perhaps a new bull.

    This website does not mention Ripple either... https://abbasite.com/ I think Ripple is done... Anyway, to respond to your clear agenda driven contribution: The .pdf document speaks of presenting 19 building blocks in where public and private sector can work together to improve cross-border payments. Further on in the document it describes what challenges it brings to building an interoperable infrastructure with all the parties involved... Not a single party is mentioned, so Ripple neither indeed. Very sharp of you! When zooming in onto the Stablecoins you mention it says that the design of it is not clear as of yet. The document itself contains a link to the "Working Group on Stablecoins" https://www.bis.org/cpmi/publ/d187.pdf Are we lucky Ripple is also working on leveraging Stablecoins backed by XRP.

    @Milly238 I would predict that the the price will break out of this range and begin trading up overtaking the ATH by December or January - then a steady rise ending in a parabolic move. The parabolic move might not take place for 14 months but the price could be at $50k at the start of the parabolic move.

    Bitcoin's Price has been above the Long Term Down Trend Line for 44 Days. The price is right against the Short Term Down Trend Line. Looks like the Candle is putting in a hammer which should mean upward movement. I expect volatility when any trend line is breached. The 50 Day EMA will also be breaking the Short Term Down Trend Line over the weekend. Looks positive.

    I have been threatening to do this for some time: Crypto @Eri produces bulletins packed with the latest news about Ripple/XRP, SBI. She provides analysis that is very often unique and insightful and depends on translating Japanese links. The sort of new information that should be discussed on this open forum. My intention is to start a rolling thread of subject matter she is introducing. Bullet points: SWIFT is becoming more accommodation towards collaboration (video clips) with outside companies like R3 - but at the same time they have been dragging their feet over the ISO20022 standards New Digital banks are growing and changing the landscape of cross border remittance industry, and removing the need to use big banks Markus Treacher has announced that new ODL corridors will soon be arriving in Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa The remittance industry is worth 500 billion but has contracted about 20% due to the corona virus pandemic. This squeeze is leading to demand for greater efficiencies which can be satisfied by moving to ODL solutions The SME market is being served by new types of banks like Remessa and Bex Banks. These banks serve Brazil/ Argentina and Chile using ODL. The market is huge And then there is the fluff - cultural news from Japan - I will let you find out for yourself. So everybody - let's beat the negativity and instead of constantly harping on about price, lets discuss how the network is growing and speculate on where our investments are likely to grow and spread new roots.

    I am afraid this is what I've found. Searching on Google maps/streetview for the address that Fajr has given at EUIPO leads to what seems to be a warehouse in Turku, Finland. The warehouse is of the company Euro East, a food company (www.euro-east.fi). On their website they do say their official address is at number 16c whereas Fajr has put up 16, but there seems no real connection with ABB from this data... Tomorrow I'll try to get in touch with Fajr through LinkedIn. If one of you is in a hurry, you can do so before I try. I'm off to bed now.

    I think many of us have been perplexed that Santander were not at the forefront of the roll out of ODL, the suspicion being that this partnership might have led to disappointments. It really good news to hear how well the partnership between Ripplenet and Santander has helped Santander become more efficient. “The partnership with Ripple is key because our success so far gives us the confidence to move ahead even faster. It’s not just the technology. Being part of RippleNet has helped us to forge sustainable and scalable relationships with other financial institutions around the world. By offering more customers a better way of sending money abroad, we’re achieving our goal of helping people and companies prosper.” I presume their AP represents the way they intend to go, with perhaps 100% coverage and ODL Today, One Pay FX has expanded to 19 countries while half of the bank’s annual international transfers can now be handled by the app. That percentage is set to increase as the service rolls out to more territories and customers.

    XRP-BTC Breakout Imminent

    Here's an analogy that I think kind of puts things into perspective. Imagine that Ripple is a new airline company that's developed a revolutionary new fleet of lightening fast airplanes that run on solar produced, clean burning hydrogen. This, as opposed to BTC's relatively fast new planes (compared to old tech) which are sucking down fuel as if it's going out of style. (mining) Initially, Ripple intended to carry both passengers (remittances) and cargo (treasury and bank payments) but found that their planes weren't large enough (liquidity) to carry sufficient cargo to make it worth the effort for these companies to switch from their normal routes (FedEx/DHL/UPS) while still maintaining adequate space for the passenger luggage. Although successful in the few routes (corridors) that they're now flying between, the market (xrp price) is uncertain of their new tech, and is somewhat skeptical of their route (corridor) development and ultimate success. As the routes ramp up, Ripple's plane sizes (liquidity) will grow accordingly. And as their network of routes increases, so does the value of their overall network, and ultimately, their ability to carry the heavy loads (liquidity) required by commercial entities. And all of this with a backdrop of having just gotten rolling, when a global pandemic grips the world. However, once that network becomes global, Ripple will be uniquely positioned to rewrite the history of the money moving industry, and at long last, carry it into the 21st century. They've only recently just gotten off the ground, but from here, the sky's truly the limit. A year from now, the world won't look nearly the same due to this pandemic; vaccine or not; economies will be crushed. Ripple won't look the same either, however, I've got a good feeling that theirs will be a case of being in the right place, at the right time, with the right stuff.....we will see.

    Correction, XRPL is a "Clearinghouse" with a distributed core accounting system used to settle transactions. XRPL does not manage margin requirements, which have to be performed either by centralized "off ledger" services/balance sheets. This is where the Crypto Exchanges come into play. Maybe the way that Leverage will be built upon CBDCs, while using the Narrow Bank business model (no fractional reserve, 100% collateralized) is through operating these Stablecoins/Margin management processes. This would enable a much more limited ratio of leverage creation due to Margin Requirements (25-30%) being much lower than the 90% that the Fractional Reserve business model can preform using a 10% reserve ratio. Please tell me someone understands what I'm saying makes sense. I'm finding it harder and harder to find people who can discuss this stuff, like the old XRPchat days? And beat the concept up, where are the weak points? Risks?

    The best target to con, is the confident successful male holding higher social status. They are more prone than the rest (anyone can be conned) to believing that they cannot be conned. I'm not saying that BTC is a con, but I think pushing BTC as some sort of investment or financial product, is a half truth at best. It is not so unlike CMOs were in 2007... Yes all the math works out, and yes it makes a legitimate financial product... like a birthday cake made of baked cow dung, covered with a beautiful math icing. More likely, is that when someone is super specialized (finance), experienced, and higher level in a large org; it becomes easy to grow "theory bound" or "paradigm bound" or basically understand how the current market structures are set up and intertwined so well, that changing fundamental aspects of these industry architectures looks obviously impossible and only a fools errand to pursue. To avoid this trap, I try to look at "new" things and wonder how, "the more things change the more they stay the same" will remain true. In doing that I have observed that... XRPL is simply a "Clearing House". Market Makers/Liquidity Providers are "specialists". Banks will function as what Ripple originally called "gateways". Exchanges are like "Prime Brokers" (they also will function as Narrow Banks, which is a new banking business model not using Fractional Reserve methods) ODL is simply JIT Liquidity, and is the "X as a Service" which is denominated in units of XRP. (Welly S. event thanked me for reminding him of this for one of his quora answers, and amended the answer) XRP is simultaneously like a "Postage Stamp" used to pay for XRPL transactions The servers which host/run XRPL function as the "Exchange", which provides a venue for the Specialists and Brokers to operate. It helps to draw analogies from, the New to the "Old". At the end of the day, the "Old" was set up to accomplish certain core functions. As long as humans/markets exist those Core Functions will need to be accomplished, How they are accomplished is what will change with any paradigm shift. In the end, it is not that these Institutional Investors are stupid, it takes some time to digest that much of what you have learned through out your career, is depreciating as the new paradigm replaces the old paradigm. We are 20 years into the retirement of the Industrial age, and the rise of the Information age.

    POLL Is XRP dead?

    It seems strange to join XRP chat just to run a poll with such a negative question? As you admit by using the word "reduce", ODL volume is not zero, it is about 30% of where it was at it ATH. The reason for the reduction has been explained - they wanted to free up liquidity for use by the growing SME market place. This is an excellent reason and is a better strategy than allowing the available liquidity to be locked up transferring large lumps to move balances across the system. It is more transparent for watchers maonitoring progress and makes liquidity available to the fastest growing and potentially largest use case market so far. To have captured 7% of the US Mex corridor in just over a year from a standing start is extraordinary growth and a good demonstration of the potential of ODL to service a huge gap in the cross border payments market. Your assumption that remittance ODL is the only use case being followed and developed by the 450 Ripple staff in offices all over the world show complete ignorance of the the XRP ecosystem. Which brings me to my original point why did you come here? Was it just to show your ignorance or were you pushed by some darker need?

Almost zero usage and negligible price movement. The stock market kept climbing and the price of many cryptos including xrp lost value. It is at least slightly depressing. It is easy for us to attacks ripple or each other as we sit in front of our keyboards while becoming emotionally attached to something we have little control of. It seems many of us, including myself have little to no experience in the field that Ripple is targeting nor the time it will take to implemented a new way of conducting business in one of, if not the most regulated industry within every country around the world.

    Nobody enjoys seeing the figures so much lower than they appeared to be a few months ago. I am sure those that want to find something negative to say about Ripple will find something to enjoy in this rather poorly informed summary. Quite frankly if you are that negative you should not be investing in XRP at all anyway. For myself I follow the utility scan rate than Tentoshi which is a liquidity index. Utility scan is a more direct measure of ODL Utility scan figures hit 20 million for a while, before the deliberately induced crash after the removal of the "Treasury" payments to free up liquidity for SME payments. The crash took us down to about 2 million, after which it recovered to about 3.5 million - which is perhaps 15- 20% of the ATH levels. It is quite clear that Ripple expect numerous new corridors to start opening soon: In particular we are waiting for Argentina, Thailand, Japan, Korea, UK, Nigeria as well as some from the Middle East. The health of the development/deployment of ODL is likely to be a function of the network size. The flywheel theory is quite clear - develop the network and the price of the tokens will follow, but if you don't believe the flywheel will ever start turning it is best to leave the XRP community and invest in tokens you believe in.

    Well my weak point is anything to do with finance. So can’t really help you there. I appreciate your posts though, and hope you continue to make them. I don’t understand much but sometimes do get the gist of them. Sorry to be just useless noise, but I wanted to encourage you as much as I am able.
