    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.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Bitcoin Finally Broke through the Big Daddy Downtrend on the Monthly chart. On the weekly chart it previously breached it in February but retreated. Bitcoin's price is now above the downtend on the Monthly, Weekly and Daily Charts. Looking at the previous chart from the Last Peak in 2013 to the one in 2017 it took 30 months to get an uptick in the Bollinger Bands. We just got an uptick in the Bollinger Bands as well on the 30 month for this cycle. (the only uptick if you take out the anomalies which I circle in the chart). Things are looking very familiar. @Milly238 Looks like it goes up and sideways from here. I don't consider a bull run to start until the previous ATH is breached which I think happens no later than the end of fall this year. If history repeats we can look forward to about 15-18 months of upward movement culminating in a parabolic run to ------ I've said around $400,000, stock to flow has $288,000, most pundits say $100,000, Tim Draper says $250,000 or higher, Dan Morehead has said as high as over $500,000. It looks like Bitcoin has turned the corner.

    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

    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.

    Why would ODL, which hasn't been live for even a year yet, correct 10 years of mistakes? Western Union revenue for the quarter ending March 31, 2020 was $1.190B, a 10.99% decline year-over-year. Western Union revenue for the twelve months ending March 31, 2020 was $5.145B, a 7.09% decline year-over-year. Western Union annual revenue for 2019 was $5.292B, a 5.33% decline from 2018. Western Union annual revenue for 2018 was $5.59B, a 1.19% increase from 2017. Western Union annual revenue for 2017 was $5.524B, a 1.87% increase from 2016. saying they've been profitable is a little bit of a reach at the given moment,

    False, when a company is dying and hurting like Moneygram is, is precisely when you buy it for pennies on the dollar and take over the whole market since WU is #1 and MG was #2. They are buying their customer base, their locations, etc etc for peanuts.

    Seems like someone might be buying again. The escrow returned this month was 800m, so 200m has been held back, that's the first time in 6-7 months that such an amount has been witheld.

    Anytime soon

    It's a terrible time in the world right now. At least we here can be somewhat supportive to each other, at least in tone. XRP sentiment in my opinion has almost never been worse. Hard time to hold through for many. I don't expect this market will always be this way. Crypto market cap keeps rising, albeit slowly, as legacy markets seem more and more unsettled and irrational. It will require more patience to bear witness to a speculative bullrun, or some form of utility, or both if that is to happen. But I will say this- one couldn't ASK for better pre-conditions than a global economic crisis alongside a global pandemic to hasten movement into digital forms of value transfer. Clearly none of us are happy about what is happening right now. But the table is set beyond how I ever imagined it to be. How and when a pop in the market occurs is up in the air I suppose. It does stand to reason, as I've always trumpeted, that economic problems have to really hit real economies in the world (not just the markets), and that is just now starting. The real pain seems still to come- as the after effects of what's happening right now sink in. The second painful leg down in traditional markets hasn't happened yet. So, this has to play out a bit more until we can test out the thesis that crypto will be the eventual landing place for yield when legacy markets and currencies spiral into more of a Mad Max Fury Road type dystopia. As for the ledger nano/other wallets- I hope everyone keeps their stuff safe using common sense. It seems like Ripple is dealing with the certificate expiration issue as well. Happy Sunday, or whatever day it is.

    This move down places Bitcoin right in the middle of the Bollinger Bands. They will tighten and it will break out. Most likely to the upside. Don't let the day to day gyrations spook you. Unless you are day trading of course .

    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.

    It is clear why Western Union wants Moneygram. Let's start with what they don't want. They don't want the Moneygram +/- $ 878 million debt. They don't want some of the old school managers and outdated payment rails and they don't want Moneygrams stiff competition on the world pay/settlement landscape. BUT what they absolutely DO WANT is On Demand Liquidity (Ripple/Moneygram fast pay & settlement rail). The same reason Visa bought Earthport (connectivity to Ripplenet & ODL settlement corridors) Why is ODL so important? ODL is one step further than Ripplenet. ODL is the liquidity (pool) necessary for the seamless transactions with narrow spreads. ODL has been growing near exponentially since the start of this year and IS THE GAME CHANGER. ODL is a difficult trick which Ripple and Moneygram have mastered (where others have failed) and it is probably also playing al role in the Ripple Home system for banks and financial institutions. Friends of my family who have come to the Netherlands from the Phillipines were allways sending money home via Western Union. However, since january 2020 they have switched to Ria Money Transfers (www.riamoneytransfer.com) because sending euros (€) via Ria using the Moneygram XRP/PHP ODL payment corridor takes less time and is 3 to 4 times cheaper. People are noticing the cheaper ODL pay/settlement corridors and are moving their business away from Western Union. Additionally Western Union has seen 'sliding revenu' due to this stiff competition in the past years and the ODL solution with it's growing customer base is what they need to stay on top. Western Union is very interested in the big customer names (Amazon, Google, Uber worldwide and others DYOR) who have recently signed up with Moneygram. The hard fact is that Western Union is being outclassed by Ripple/Moneygram On Demand Liquidity system and that they have tried to stall Ripple (with negative fake news) and defend their outdated pay and settlement system. Luckly for WU is that they do have some smart managers who have the flexibility to react and sense that a friendly Moneygram merger/takeover is the right answer to keep WU and the USA in the race for Swift 2.0. The world is changing and don't forget that there is a 99% chance that the Chinese will have a digital Yuan by 1-1-2021 and that the days of the good old 'green back / petro dollar' are numbered. A merger / friendly takeover is a smart move for Moneygram and Western Union.

    This *** Something is going on, they are definitely threatened by a company that can do what they do with fewer mistakes for less, I mean the CEO actually said - during his 60 second examination of xrp - that it had no benefit whatsoever... Then, rumours have it, he stamped his feet and stuck his fingers deep into his ears and shouted he didn't want to talk about it anymore! Something is going on here, and it 100% definitely, bonafide, has everything to do with xrp

    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!

    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 EUR/USD

    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.

    I suspect you might be having difficulty with the terms "revenue", "decline" and "profit". Losing 10% here or there is not the end of the world when you rake in 500m in profit in a quarter (which shareholders are saying thank you very much indeed for). 2 billion in profit for the year is not to be sniffed at. source https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/WU/western-union/gross-profit Those numbers may not be exactly right, but I trust them more than most of the stuff I read on xrpchat.

    It's better to buy them then letting someone else buy them. If someone else buys them then that keeps MG in the game competing against WU. If WU buys them then not only does this eliminate competition but WU can absorb the good parts that MG has been investing in recent times and that's the digital front. This is what WU lacks and is falling behind against its peers. MG on the otherhand has been investing heavily in their digital front where they saw a lot more growth then the rest of their business. It makes sense for WU to buy a dying MG because each have what the other lacks. Edit: By this I also mean where MG is in debt but WU is cash rich. Will this deal happen though? Probably not. If WU has made an offer then there's probably other suitors out their who have also made offers.

    Will XRP ever see 1 dollar?

    There was a time we would compare Market Caps to see what the maximum possible price was. At the time I can remember comparing XRP/BTC market cap ratio would put the max price at around $0.70. I had never thought that the price would surpass that limit. Surprisingly it reached $4.30 .. If we compare current Market Caps now, the max price for XRP would be 19.8 times what the price is now, so it would be around $4.20 .. If we compare with the max ever BTC Market Cap (Jan. 2018) with current XRP Market Cap, XRP could be 35.2 times current price, so around $7.50 .. If we would take into account exaggeration from the market as in Jan. 2018, then $7.50 times $4.3 / $0.7 (~ 6.17), = a peak of around $46.00 .. But, you know, just some number mumbo jumbo and wishful thinking

    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.

    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.
