    Bank of America's new patent

    This patent is really fascinating, as it appears to allow both banks to maintain private sets of currency ledgers, perform the forex behind the scenes using their existing connections, effectively wash the transaction groups, send the distribution lists independently through electronic communication using a GAN, WAN or LAN, and then simultaneously transfer actual net value for the notices through a third party real-time net settlement tool - ILP, which can use a variety of trustless tokens to transfer value, but XRP is the fastest at the moment. From the patent: So the final outcome here, from my reading: No need for banks to own XRP legally - either having value in custody and/or trusting market makers No need to expose their internal transactions and books or wallets on the network This allows banks to effectively create their own digital wallets to account for digital currencies and treat them all as if they were internal accounts - Including security and custody, etc. What is interesting here, is they will probably use their own internal stablecoin currencies to do this. No need for regulatory clarity on this matter to start using it from day one, as the XRP utilized in transferring value across the ILP belongs to the protocol infrastructure, not the banks. The patent effectively internalizes the costs of exchange (but avoids xRapid) and then uses the messaging services of either xCurrent or some other secured communications rail (xCurrent, as I understand it, is NOT a blockchain product - it is a communications product) while simultaneously transferring the value packets (after both sides agree on KYC/AML compliance) via ILP. Which is going to raise some very interesting court cases in the future. When data is transferred across a digital network, who owns the packets that you send? Are you giving license to Comcast or Verizon to pass through your data? Does it belong to you the entire time? Does it belong to the intended recipient? This may not matter a lot while sending information, but with you are sending packets of net worth that are unique and dropped packets means dropped value - who owns that? Who owns the responsibility for transmitting packets of value across the ILP? This space is getting more fascinating and complicated by the week. It is true that they aren't necessarily going to implement this right away - but the question to me is - is ILP ready to scale to this magnitude? It seems that we are talking about a considerable number of packets to send on a continuous basis. How is packet value recycled in ILP? That's the part of this that I don't quite understand. Regular data moves and replicates and disappears and no one thinks about it again. Does ILP use the underlying currency and translate value into the expected digital ledger denominations on the fly? Do both parties simply need to say "Hey, I want to send you this currency and does ILP automatically say 'okay, we'll use this value for that currency in XRP and it will take this many packets and cost this much and based on network congestion it should take this many seconds, etc." Then what, when the net worth of the packets is converted is the XRP deallocated? There must be operating accounts that drive the ILP system Because to my mind - please, correct me if I am wrong - a cryptocurrency - in order to exist - must belong to a wallet. It is not like paper money that can belong to a NULL wallet - it is a zero-sum game. Yes it can get sent to a wallet allocation no one has access to and be stranded, but it is stranded precisely because there is no XRP (or any digital currency) that is unowned. Every XRP is owned by somebody, even if that is a careless somebody or dead somebody. And I believe other cryptocurrencies all work this way as well, right? Every coin is in a wallet. I've seen a lot of slide decks on ILP but this part really eludes me. My concern, I guess, and I don't mean this as FUD, maybe someone with more technical knowledge can clear this up... If the XRP that is required to loop through ILP to transmit value to upper layers represented on the stack, and this is an automated process, it seems to me that the market value gets determined by those who use the system and transmit value back and forth, but that XRP is locked in and the value that gets traded within that loop is outside of retail and other markets. Is that right? I don't want to necessarily raise the whole issue of "secret ledger" again, but I don't understand how "protocol-level" value exchange that happens when sending value through ILP can ever touch "retail-level" exchange markets. That doesn't mean that the ILP will not need more XRP as people discover how cheap it really is, and that the ILP's use of XRP will soon dwarf every over XRP use case if it becomes an international standard for exchanging value, but for the time being - if ILP really provides a viable way for banks to get around using RippleNet - well, I just don't know what that means in terms of retail exchange value of the coin - it makes valuation a whole lot more complicated than what I had ever considered. ILP's use case of XRP seems like it is in an entirely different universe as compared to the speculative or store of value use case people are familiar with now. I feel like I'm trying to price watts of electricity for running an entire city based on the cost of lighting a few lightbulbs at a workbench with magnets and wire.

    This is the kind of question that goes over the head of most XRP hodlrs and in fact, most people. It's a very complicated question and a really thorough answer would take more time than I'm prepared to spend here. But here goes..... Who or what exactly is threatened by Libra or any crypto? It isn't the US dollar itself so much ( that is just a medium of exchange). It isn't US citizens or citizens of other countries, It's really the banking cartel that runs the credit system for the entire world that is threatened...and yes... the answer is Y-E-S in capital letters. Crypto threatens banks.....and also the legislative bodies that spend tax money.....in every country in the world. Fiat money, as it now exists, creates as many or more problems than it solves. It has resulted in this horrible positive feedback loop we have with money. Banks create dollars (and Euros, and pretty much all fiat currencies) from thin air by loaning money into existence....and they depend on their partners in government to make sure that BANKS ALONE have that power of the CREDIT purse. The governments....they get something back for letting the bankers create unlimited fiat money. They get carte blanche to spend money they don't have...to run endless deficits like they don't even matter. It's an unholy alliance with almost unlimited power in this world. XRP definitely COULD threaten that.....which is why we have the likes of Brad Garlinghouse and Ripple sucking up to both banks and governments to try to get them to allow XRP to exist, so that it can even be used in the most benign way, the most beneficial way for the banks themselves, so that they will buy into it. But banks are still afraid of crypto. And they should be. How does the existing fiat money not crash under unlimited money printing and unlimited government spending? Well, sometimes it does......but the world's reserve currency has NEVER crashed (you can fact check that one), and the dollar won't crash either, as long as inflation exists to act as a hidden tax. Governments borrow and then pay back with cheaper dollars...That's the tax for allowing you to have your own personal money. Most people know that inflation takes their buying power away over time, but they don't realize it's engineered into the system on purpose to rip them off. These days, the amount of notional wealth in dollars (or any fiat) terms greatly exceeds the underlying value of the assets that collateralize them. That creates real instability. And inflation, which is predicated on economies that grow (theoretically) year-over-year into perpetuity, is in trouble, as more and more money pumped into the credit system as "investment" gives less and less bang for the buck as growth stalls. Growth is finite. This is the real threat to the USD, not cryptos..... But cryptos represent a way for peer to peer exchange without the involvement of government.... Limited inflation. Even no inflation if you want it. And crypto banks, like NEXO and Celsius and others, can even serve as an alternative to bank credit. Frankly, I'm surprised it's gotten this far...but as long as it was just some fringe characters and drug dealers and money launderers, it was not given any credence.....but with Libra, the powers that be are suddenly getting their wake-up call....and that call is from their international banking cartel partners who are suddenly waking up themselves and having an intense WTF moment. There is a lot at stake for the banks, which have now effectively become dinosaurs looking at their own extinction. And the governments will do whatever they're told. Most (almost all) your elected representatives in Washington, London, The Hague......are as ignorant about how money works as most lay people. We've seen (in 2008 and since) that banks always get what they want. When times are bad for banks, taxpayers (like us) subsidize their losses. So upstart money (crypto) is bound to get regulated out of business or criminalized....unless banks own it and profit from it. Or banks all go defunct and their awesome power is no more. It's pretty much that simple, when it comes down to it. There is no way for fiat (as it exists now) and banks( as they exist now) to peacefully co-exist with Bitcoin or XRP or any other crypto that provides a decentralized medium of exchange that is not in control of both central banks and governments. It's unclear how this works out. Crypto can be criminalized but it can't be completely stopped. It can maybe be co-opted. I think the delay in coming up with regulatory guidance in the US is a deliberate stalling tactic forced by powerful elites in order to buy some time. The banks want to co-opt crypto and they see Ripple as an ally. Bitcoin whales and rich miners and foreign unregulated crypto exchanges are definitely NOT the allies of the banks.

    LOL. No, I'm not a shill. (for the f***ing 100th time) And yes, believe it or not, I think we (the community) need to act to hold Ripple accountable for accurate reporting. I've helped in the past with this by bringing to light the possible overselling in Q1. If we end up having credible evidence that is iron-clad, I would definitely not hesitate to cover it.

First it was BearableGuy, then “the BGs” (because all the copycats must be working together), then it was the Ripple Riddler, then “the Riddlers”. Now it’s YoYo. Next it will be “the YoYos.” There is no end to it. None of them are real. It’s Q-Anon for crypto Twitter. And yet he also doesn’t “believe in” human contributions to global warming... and is shuffling that propaganda campaign to his audience. It’s a little disgusting. That said, he shares interesting news articles sometimes. Thanks for sharing.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Ok so Bitcoin's price went from: $5k up to $9k $9k down to $7.5k $7.5k up to $14k $14k down to $9k These moves took 2 weeks at the most. Anyone notice a pattern If this keeps up we are at around $17k in less than two weeks. It will look something like this.
  12. 14 points
    By and large I don't pay much attention to the XRP chart, the main reason being that it tells very little. All of XRP moves, in it's short history, have seemingly come out of nowhere and have been based on News or outside factors, rather than technical levels. The main driver of the last big moves in 2017 being the announcement and completion of the escrow and the parabolic move in Bitcoin which dragged all cryptos up - then down. So basically the price of XRP went from flat to flying in a matter of days. Do I think XRP's price movements will play out as it has in the past? Yeah Absolutely. Honestly, .40, .30 .20 or .50. those prices really don't make a ton of difference to me. I don't feel better with the XRP price at .42 than I do at .32. - (Obviously it's different if you are trading) - But I'm waiting on a big move - not 20%, 50% 100%. I'm waiting on the 10x, 50x, 100x. I know there is a lot of discouragement in the XRP community right now but IMHO the last/current down move was/is a buying opportunity. Anyway the chart is really not doing a whole lot. Regarding the Daily EMA's the 100, 200 and 300 are threatening to all become one line. Can the price go on like this? Maybe but I'm betting (and with quite a bit of $$) that it won't. I bought every day this week. Keep your heads up.

    Finding hope in dark times

    If we were to break through current bear market lows (.24xx back in late summer 2018), and plumb new depths, I think Ripple will continue to plot forward toward the execution of their business plan just as they did before the insanity started in 2017. They did just fine when XRPUSD was at .006 - .03 for years before 2017. It's very important to understand the risk of investing in an asset like XRP in the highly unregulated, nascent industry of decentralized ledger assets. Fundamental risks: The asset class could fail, Ripple as a company may fail, xRapid as a product/service may not achieve widespread adoption. Technical risks: The market could be entirely taken over by unregulated automated trading (if is not already), to the point that it would not function based on natural supply and demand. There are already signs of this taking place. On the bright side, none of the risks I am describing are new, and if anything (other than unregulated automated trading), they have lessened somewhat with the passing of time (try investing in 2014/15...). The area between .24xx and .30xx has been support for almost a year. If it breaks, it could be very dramatic, but perhaps short lived... look at the reaction to the breakdown of BTCUSD near 6000 to the 3000 area. If you still believe in the fundamentals, and can tolerate the risk and volatility, perhaps keep some powder dry for the opportunity to invest during the such a move. Don't invest more than you can lose. Decide how much of a loss you can bear, returns you are willing to stomach, and the timeframe you are willing to wait before exiting. Then execute in spite of the strong emotions you will feel at the time not to...

    Burning XRP to make the price go up sounds like an idea from an investor in XRP. Ripple is not aiming to just get the price up, but grow total liquidity. If all succeeds they may need the 100bln XRP. What I do see happening is that eventually Ripple could release custody of the escrow to a sort of Central Bank type or other IMF like institute so they can control the release in the future on a macro economic scale. It might even be a complete new type of institute responsible for doing that as long as it's not Ripple anymore to avoid a conflict of interest.

    Yes, but the behavioral undercurrent will vary based on how individual cryptos were set up. The fact that drew me to BTC back in the day was its fixed supply. Fixed supply + increasing demand = exponential price increase in the long term. Add hodlers to the mix = reduced circulating supply = compounded exponential price increase in the long term. Now take something like BNB, for which both of the above hold true, but then insert quarterly token burn: further compounded exponential price increase in the long term. These cryptos are inherently deflationary and thus excellent for hodling. Now take xrp - it has a fixed supply, it has hodlers, it will presumably have significant real-world utility, it has inherent token burn.... and it also has 1/2 of its supply locked up by Ripple who will gradually release it to the market over the next 15 years. This is the exact factor that is going to be exerting constant downward pressure on the xrp price for some time to come. Yes, there will be periods where hodling+fomo+utility demand greatly exceed the selling pressure and cause the price to moon, but as soon as the dust settles the price will drift back down due to constant and ongoing selling pressure. IMO - this alone is the reason that xrp behaves like it does (dead in the water... until it isn't), and that exact inflationary behavior will continue until all xrp have been released to the market. In other words: 15 more years of bipolar brain damage. On a brighter note, this also means that xrp will continue to be very well suited for swing trading for the next 15 years. Sell the runs into one of the cryptos that are already deflationary, and then buy back in once xrp tanks because it *will* pull back. Rinse and repeat, and enjoy ungodly gains.

    So either this platform uses Ripple... Or every major Ripple partner decided overnight to join a new platform, and NO non-Ripple partners decided to do so. One of those hypotheses tests credulity.

    SBI VC maintenance...

    Because SBI owns stake of Ripple and their exchange is likely to support xRapid eventually if not from the beginning and this would open JPY/XRP corridor. Their exchange is probably going to have decent if not high volume and it's possible that SBI at some point will route all of their JPY <-> USD payments through XRP because there is good liquidity with both XRP/USD and XRP/JPY, so why not?

    Not sure if this has been covered already in a previous blog entry. However, I just noticed that Ripple has made some additional changes to its BoD and has created a "Strategic Advisory Board." One of the two strategic advisors listed, Zoe Cruz, had previously joined Ripple's BoD back in late 2017. However, it appears she now serves as a Strategic Advisor to Ripple along with Anthony Lim, the former Managing Director and President (Americas) at Singapore’s Sovereign Wealth Fund, GIC Private Ltd. Wonder who will replace her on the BoD?

    The guy was as close as it gets on the MoneyGram thing and he repeated it many many times. I will give him benefit of the doubt on this one. The sad part is that even if this was true (and possibly the biggest crypto news to date), xrp would go up 5 cents the first hour and then back down again. Nothing moves this coin.

    To be honest you should have just stayed off xrpchat. This place is pretty toxic. You cannot speculate without the word hopium being thrown around. Everyone is on a tight trigger. There is some serious issues on here with new accounts and FUD. If you are out, then you are out. I respect your decision to sell. The reason why I am not. I feel like i am lucky. I am lucky I stumbled on this company and its asset. Bank of america, moneygram, amex, SBI, Bank of england, HSBC, transfergo, ECB, IMF, westpac, SABB, white house meetings, mercury FX, earthport, all the heavy hitters now working for ripple like betsy waters who was the head of hsbc transactional fx payments at hsbc. Legarde now head of the ecb, and she is the most pro xrp person outside of ripple. I just cannot ignore this stuff. You witnessed the foundations of the new financial systems being built. bi directional instant settlement payments with massive scaleability but the .32c seems to just get so many people frustrated. To me swift GPI is like the ipod where as XRP is Spotify and I am willing to wait to see how this plays out. I have written off my investment. Its my swing for the fences. If I lose, so be it. psychologically I am willing to accept that. If XRP is worth X amount in the green in 2025 or 2028 and I sold in 2019 because BTC was moving up and I was sick of xrp sitting at .32c I would be kicking myself. I think we will see a $10 xrp sooner than people think. BTC is going to run into trouble. Chinese mining pools, scaleability and fees.........and the environment. Thats my .32c. Im not trying to convince you not to sell. You do you. This is a very long term hold for me and I eat volatility for breakfast. It just doesn't frustrate me as it does other people. Neither does the .32c usd.

    Can’t blame you. At the end of the day, this is an investment. I feel that so many people here are emotional and forget that money is money. If you purchased 50k in xrp, that’s $15,000. To most, that’s big money. Some folks could have 20,000 in at .32 cents and ride all the way down to .05 cents and still be happy. Good for them. I personally cashed out my initial investment a long time ago (in the $1.50 range), and decided to just leave the rest in. Point is, you did the right thing. And the guy that bought 50k xrp the same day as you and won’t even think of selling did the right thing. At the end of the day it’s about returns. Not about showing your loyalty to a company. Investment 101. good luck in your future investments.

    https://www.cnbc.com/video/2019/07/18/ripple-ceo-on-libra-perhaps-some-silicon-valley-arrogance-with-cryptocurrency-rollout.html BG: "I agree with Secretary Mnuchin: In order for these technologies to be used well and be taken advantage of, it has to be done in a regulatory compliant way ; We can't expose more risk and, whether it's terrorism financing, whether it's money laundering - these are things that, from its core, Ripple really has been focused on making sure we're partnering with the existing system." "A surprise to me, for example, in the 28 groups that are signed on to the Libra whitepaper, you have zero banks. I think that's just a stark contrast to where we think this world should come from. There is a huge opportunity to change the way this world's financial systems work, that is very beneficial to consumers, businesses, etc. - but again it's not competing with the banks... you know, David Marcus came out when he announced Libra and said 'this spells the end of Western Union' - that was a huge call to action against banks around the world that had been watching big tech players that they're fearful are going to come into this space." He also goes on to compare Bitcoin, Ether and their control by Chinese miners vs. decentralized, open XRP ledger, and also how the US needs regulatory clarity in order to not get left behind by China and other countries.

    Its not about who is right or wrong, this only serves egocentric feelings. The market does its own thing. Its about analysing the market and making decisions based on past performance. Future price movements are nearly impossible to predict but since our brain is hard-wired to spot patterns in EVERYTHING, some people think they can actually predict this. TA is good for analysing long term crypto market behaviour but short term is hard. Just let the market do its thing and make your decision based on rational data. So a bit hypocritic, but I'm getting sick of these meta discussions in this thread. Once this thread was great. Now its poluted with forum members that contribute nothing and only bash TA. This was literally the ONLY constructive thread on this forum. So as some others have pointed out, please refrain from posting dumb **** in here and keep the quality at an high level. Its the reason why I left this thread and only read it when Eric has something to say.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    well I guess it's luck only , but it seemed like the market was going to fall off and it happened. I'm happy because now I own more then I wanted to have before 2020 , I own more than 10k . New goal is 20k before 2020. yea it's not much I know , but if it goes to 5$+ it's going to be good , even if it's in 5 years. 3 months ago I had only 5-6k , by selling some at high prices (0.47$ rebought at 0.38$ etc). I made like 2k XRP in 3 months and yesterday +25%

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    Keep your heads up these retracements are a regular occurrence - the last one being from June 21 to July 2. I know the dips are terrifying for the newcomers but eventually they become just unsettling. Owning bitcoin is kinda like having a bipolar girlfriend, don't know if the is gonna kiss you or try to plunge a knife in your chest. Anyway the sky isn't falling and we will start moving up soon. These dips are a great time to pick up ALTs cause as you can see when bitcoin gets hurt ALTs get destroyed. @Molten yeah we might be close to the bottom but timing it perfectly is too risky in my opinion. I'd rather not miss out myself and I bought some more XRP today @tony71 Ehh I think there are a lot better buys right now than bitcoin, but if you feel you don't own enough BTC this is probably a good opportunity to get some. @TheXRPNinja ADA looks like a good buy. I'd agree it's probably a good time to initiate a position in ADA. Big moves down are usually followed by big moves up. Take advantage. Remember on Red days we buy.

    Sell, trade, or wait. All of those options might make you rich or insolvent. I recommend fine whisky.

    XRP Roundup - Why I am buying

    So you believe in the asset enough to stay in it, and assume you are the only one "husseling"(sic). You have no idea about my investments or dollar cost average. You seem angry at your investment of time and money, and the lack of returns. Why should that stop me posting in a forum about XRP? You're only response is to take the **** out of me with a highly negative and immature response. Try responding to my actual thought out post, rather than copy pasting "plans within plans" for attention like a child. If you and your "bro's" (who are these bro's?) are so sick of people talking about positive news and potential price movement, why are you on an XRP forum? Or you come here hoping to reinforce your bro group think with FUD? How dare I offer a considered overview of the current position. Please enlighten us with more negativity wise one. You seem to speak for everyone here, although not me. I do not expect to see $1 till we get SEC clarity, and we are still waiting. As I said in my example, comparing this investment to a speculative investment is pointless, and proves you are in this for the wrong reasons. You also would have made more if you bought XRP at 2c, but do you relive that moment too? What do you hope to achieve with all this complaining about your wrong investment, will Brad magically make your XRP go up to please you and the bro's? If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.
