    MoneyGram and Uber Launch Partnership

    Not directly related to XRP but still it could be the implosion point. Moneygram uses XRP ,then Uber drivers can use XRP. Its a big news but the price doesnt matter. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/moneygram-uber-launch-partnership-support-190000642.html

    XRP Weekly Market Report

    Hope you find some interesting tidbits in here. Much you have already seen, some might be new. It's a wrap-up of XRP and Ripple news over the past week: https://cryptoking.org/xrp-weekly-report-may-29-2020-steady-odl-growth/ The Weekly Report takes the "glass is half full"-approach. Of course more controversial topics are not ignored as you'll see, but overall the Weekly Report should give a general overview of how much progress Ripple and XRP are making. With focus on XRP. I plan to publish this aggregated report every Friday. Fingers crossed the news flow will be interesting, if not exciting.

    Ripple Weekly report FXcoin is site that provides the information and analysis that is really necessary for trading crypto assets. They are writing Ripple's weekly report Wednesday at 15:00 JST. Their report can be very helpful in getting to know Ripple. By checking the weekly reports, you can see that Ripple is making steady progress. https://translate.google.co.jp/translate?hl=ja&sl=ja&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.fxcoin.jp%2Ftag.php%3Ftag%3D%E3%83%AA%E3%83%83%E3%83%97%E3%83%AB%2B%E3%82%A6%E3%82%A3%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AF%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%2B%E3%83%AC%E3%83%9D%E3%83%BC%E3%83%88

    If you want to tell people it's time for take off, this is the correct way to do it, which is Back it up, not to remain secretive/pm/showing a Deer avatar. I dont need you all to request pm, here's my take, no you dont have to send me 1,000 xrp and i wont send you 100,000 xrp back either. Some lifeform pm-ed me here's the stages of progression: 1. under the descending trendline for 1 year 2. started to use the descending trendline as support in the 2nd year 3. lift off and look where we're at now in the pic below:

    Bollinger Bands continue to tighten on Bitcoin, Litecoin and XRP. This is the tightest the bollinger bands have been on XRP since the run up from .006 in early 2017!! Less than .01 difference on the bands. Which direction do we break? Well it looks like Ethereum is leading the way and that way is up.

    That’s generally a good policy. But there are situations it is not sufficient to convey the full situation. Imagine asking about a local hardware store... is there one? Let’s assume not, but there is a vacant lot with a sign up saying there will be one. Fact is: no local hardware store. Then the builders move in and start constructing it. Fact is: no local hardware store. Then the building is complete and the fit-out begins. Fact is: no local hardware store. But maybe at some point it’s legit to say that there will be. Same thing is happening here... things are being built. You are correct in what you say, but are you correct in conveying the situation? Here are some facts. Moneygram want to use more XRP but are limited by liquidity that is slowly growing. Uber drivers have access to Moneygram at cheaper prices. Many Uber drivers remit money to the targeted corridors ODL is growing in. So flat out saying “nothing to do with XRP” might be presently true, but also might not be actually conveying the full situation. Certainly it is not a stretch to think that XRP might soon be used in a percentage of these Uber driver remittances. (Currently north of ten percent for Mexico) I‘m not saying you are wrong... but am saying sometimes saying a ‘fact’ is only part of the story.

    The puzzle pieces are coming together! Remittance customers and Uber drivers have a lot of crossover, so the partnership will encourage those folks to use Moneygram (and therefore RippleNet) for money transfers. This could also explain the many Uber references in Ripple presentations over the years. Moneygram seems to have been on fire lately (in a good way). I think RippleNet is at the heart of many of these integrations and developments.

    Bollinger Bands only flatten out/tighten for so long. Eth is breaking out now, Ltc and believe it or not XRP are also beginning to break out and I bet Bitcoin will follow.

    I don't know if David hinted at it.But I seem to increase EUR / USD pair volume. https://utility-scan.com/#/dashboard I think this is probably caused by autobridge bridging two order books with XRP. For example, I think Bitstamp's XRP/USD and XRP/EUR order books are automatically synthesized. https://xrpl.org/autobridging.html https://xrpl.org/blog/2014/introducing-offer-autobridging.html

    Bitcoin's Bollinger Bands are tightening and the Price is above the Downtrend line. - On the Weekly and Monthly chart things look even better - The end of the Week and the End of the Month will Break those charts as well. Price just broke the recent down trend - I see the price moving up from here a close over $10,500 and it will start to move higher. Look at LTC's chart Bollinger Bands been straight and tightening for 7 weeks - it's ready to blow. IMO given where the prices are too many factors favor a rise in price for the break to be down.

    ODL Bitso XRP/MXN Volume

    I understand only a few corridors are active now. However there's only a fraction of those 22k corridors that do meaningful volume. This is not a simple calculation sadly, we can't just extrapolate. Nor in the existing corridors or with expanding to more corridors. Do we have 40 mill$ XRP volume a day on ODL (I don't keep track of the number)? Even if it hits that 100% of daily volume that would only support the current price (sub 20cents). Of course speculation is never 0%. For getting 2, 20, 200$ XRP that some are hoping for we'd need far bigger increase (and preferably in a small timeframe ). I still give it 2 years to see substantial (10x-50x) increase in volume. I'm not in it for 1xx$ XRP. 2-10$ would already be nice returns. All above it is a bonus Just waiting (im)patiently for those new corridors to be fired up.

    My own bank?

    I hope I posted this in the right spot, XRP is my primary hodl bag and was looking to use it together with banking services for convenience. I have looked for other (EUR) ways to get a good solid and reliable way to get some interest on my money without bunch of restrictions because my bank is getting more and more expensive and a lot more reasons for sure. I came across a platform called Nexo. Created an account for experiences and immediately was sold. Great interest on your EUR (and/or $) account of 8% (also on some stabilecoins, for XRP etc. interest is coming as well) and your account insured for $100M, if I am not mistaken by spelling, by Lloyd's London. There a re many benefits within the account to be found like a crypto credit line, a platform coin for a form of dividend (lol) by ratio and time (2018: 7,6% and 2019: 12,7% annual rate). PAXG is offered as well for those who are still saving for a safe but already have a computer with internet . To good to be true? They are focused on lending (also based on your crypto assets) and with the usage of the Nexo coin (and the Swiss banking background and regulations in place) makes this an interesting option. The negatives are you cant use other named accounts to transfer money, depositing salary by an employer isn't possible yet. Long waiting list for the credit card. And some other smaller issues I have to dig in. Don't get me wrong it's not perfect but by far the best thing I have seen this far for what I need. I think this is a great option for a savings account with a form of crypto liquidity by a relatively solid fin. partner. When the interest rate on XRP goes live I will be using some coins for the annual rate if this will be in the range of the stablecoins 8% that is. Another point is the security. I am no IT-specialist in this area but only one Authentication option and no hardware security key option yet seems to be a missed opportunity. The combination of both is way more secure (so always check when dealing with your finances, especially what YOU REALLY NEED TO DO YOURSELF, in relation to safety and security). Invest time and money for those coming in recently and unaware. Safety is relative we know now. 8% interest on my EUR account, crypto's available from my account, combining my XUMM app and so on. This is something I can really use and was waiting for it. I believe a lot of people with me. This is in no way a promotion and/or my way to refer people to this service and always check it out thoroughly please. Maybe I am missing something and am aware of the possible risks, so should you. I believe I am more at risk with my current old dino bank and the insurance on my account is only 25k (backed by the government, I am paying for my own crappy insurance payout ). But that's personal and got nothing to do with you. This is a taste of the future imho. Liquid accounts, full of assets transferable into another in an instant, cold/hot storage by providers, investment options all in one place. If better regulations are in place, I can see these accounts becoming useful real fast (and my old dino bank falling even faster making it even more risky besides the ongoing printing press operations by the FED company). So, my own bank? That's for you to judge. Enjoy and stay safe!

    Easy IOUs on Xumm.Community

    Hey All! So last night I tried out the Easy IOUs feature (https://xumm.community/easy-iou) rolled out by Xumm.Community and created my own IOU on the XRPL called Xontle (XTL) after the currency used by the Mayas (cocoa beans). As stated in the website perhaps this is the most straight forward way to create an IOU in the XRPL and I could confirm. It took me a little less than half hour and cost me 5 XRP service fee and another 10 XRP put in reserve to create trust lines.. I wrote about my experience with the service (not a how-to guide, as I think you need to read step by step carefully). https://coil.com/p/moncho/Back-to-Basics-Xontle-a-Cocoa-Inspired-Token-in-the-XRPL/DUKsP0N9X

    That is true for sure. None of this is certain and hence the risk. In fact risk and return are always correlated. So in my hardware store example, the risk of it not happening is highest when it’s just vacant land. If you were somehow investing in it then, at that point the shares would be cheap... high risk, high possible return. By the time the “Open Saturday” sign is put out the risk is small and the return from an investment at that point also is also small. Where exactly we are with XRP and the risk return situation is not at all clear. Hopefully we are still at the cheap end and not at the top end.

    ODL market makers will want to borrow XRP (just think of it leverage for their inventory) to conduct their business. I'd expect that as liquidity depth grows, so will demand to borrow XRP (more business to do)... and like I said in my previous comment, I expect interest rates to be rising for the rest of my life, or at least my effective working life. Market Makers will earn a spread, which competition should shrink to a minimum. The spread will be the difference between their borrowing costs, and the interest rate they sell access to XRP at. These borrowing/selling interest rates should both rise in tandem, maintaining a stable spread over time. Folks that are not holding a levered position in XRP (own it outright, not borrowing XRP) should be able to enjoy rising interests when lending XRP.

    The hash rate doesn't directly effect price but a lower hash causes longer block times so that the block reward, new 6.25 bitcoins, are not created every 10 minutes but could take as much as 100% longer. The difficulty is adjusted every 2016 blocks or approximately every 2 weeks so that an average of a 10 minute bock time is maintained.. https://www.blockchain.com/charts/median-confirmation-time So a lower block rate causes less new bitcoins providing upward pressure on the price. If miners have a stash of bitcoins they need to dump that would certainly drop the price but if they are not running a profitable operation they would most likely hoard their coins and wait to sell at a higher price or just shut off their operation. There are other factors to consider rather than pure economic ones when viewing hash rate. See this article. https://cointelegraph.com/news/china-strikes-down-10-of-global-btc-hashrate-who-will-pick-up-the-slack Overall though Hash rate can be viewed as investment in the bitcoin ecosystem and other than the volatility around the 4 year halving disruptions it has been in increasing.

    No. Because these trans are being tracked from the api so they are there, they already exist, as EUR XRP not as EUR USD. Did you not understand what they mean when they say ‘track the trades’? as was said before you posted, there is very little liquidity EUR USD on the exchange and as also was said earlier, the software is created to make FIAT XRP, then XRP FIAT trades. This is in line with what it is already doing.

    More sideways action. Bands continue to tighten. Bitcoin's price continues to move above and below the Down Trend Line throughout the day. Again I think once the Bollinger Bands tighten further it will make a big move up.

    when XRPL is used this field contains the transaction hash on the xrp ledger, in EUR-USD as XRPL is not involved, we set this field with OFFCHAIN_[TIMESTAMP_FIRST_BUY]_[TIME_STAMP_FIRST_SELL] we can run a batch to retrieve some data from last week but I prefer keep the history of utility-scan, and YES, monday I'm sure we'll got a new ATH

    To be fair it was 10 mil usd on Bitstamp alone. I haven't gone through the other exchanges but Bitstamp, Kraken, ItBit and Coinbase are used to price the CFTC futures price so they were probably involved. Also other major exchanges like Binnance would also have to be involved. so lets say probably $50 million is needed to crash the market. It's true that Bitcoin does not have a ton of liquidity but a lot of markets would have a hard time absorbing that kind of selling all at once. Bitcoin doesn't have specialists making a market for buys and sells so it sometimes happens that all the bids get taken out with a big market order, but the price rebounds. As price increases so does liquidity. I think a good question to ask to determine the potential price of Bitcoin is - what price does it need to reach to have enough liquidity so that one entity cannot crash the price. I think it shows that we are a long way away from the top. Look at it this way - in 2016 what would a $50 million market sell order have done to the price. You don't have to look, I'll tell you. It would have crushed it. Today if that happens it moves down 10% for a few minutes then rebounds and finishes the day down like 5%. In another 4 years it will take a $500 million market sell order to do the same. And so on and so forth.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure you came back around Dec 2019 more to gloat. So the whole nonchalant act is invalid. But I agree with points 1 to 4 You held strong during 2018 when the whole xrpchat tinfoil army was gang banging you for being realistic. But nobody likes a smart arse so keep the little charisma you have left and leave it at this.

    That's very nice. Good job. Saves me worrying about integrating my graphs with utility-scan. Though I'd like to see the stacked bar-style plots rather than the line graphs for different corridors weeky/monthly/quarterly etc etc if you can add them. I'll happily donate my python scripts if you're interested.

    This is likely because liquidity depth is still shallow, relativity to their total addressable market. This will also be true for most RippleNet users, until market participants (exchanges, custody, derivatives, etc) are existing in each domestic economy. Tick Toc, Tick Toc, Tick Toc

    Price is starting to oscillate beautifully (think sine wave) and typically the amplitude gradually decreases until eventually triggering a significant move. Something is brewing and as I said a few days back I think it is a move back up to the $9,800-$9,900 area.

    A fairly common rhetorical technique is to take a point and stretch it to the absurd, and by doing so make the original point absurd by association. I did not say that, and I’m guessing you know it. My point was that either it is a scam, or these people, who do it for a living and have everything to gain if they can succeed, have a better understanding of the problems than you and I, and yet they still see a way forward. Knowing that should give any armchair Admiral at least a little pause before concluding that this or that corridor cannot work. And no, they won’t run out of money eventually ( if you define eventually as being within our working lifetime,) and that’s a good thing because they are making a sea change in world finance which is no small undertaking. Perhaps they are one of the only players with the wherewithal to achieve this revolution of finance. I’m a little puzzled why you think it cannot have multiple paths and players beyond just market makers, and therefore a balance overall, not just across one corridor. But anyway, I’ve made my point and I guess it’s up to you and the reader to decide if this current situation is the limit of possibilities. Thank you for the discussion.

    Yep! I think they announced it back in Jan or Feb, but since the utility scan volumes looked low at the time it didn’t get much attention. Turns out the algorithm just wasn’t showing those trades yet — it’s probably been ramping up alongside USD > PHP since the start of the year.
