    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.

    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.

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    @Benchmark LOL. I don't know why anyone listens to Peter Brant. This is all you need to know about him. https://www.newsbtc.com/2018/12/19/bitcoin-price-warning-trader/ He is a good analyst to follow, if you don't like money. Have we reached peak despair on this board yet? The topics look pretty grim regarding XRP. Me, I keep buying. My XRP bags get heavier by the day. Some people I guess think crypto is a fad - I think it is the way of the future (and I'm pretty sure XRP is going to be a part of that future), so I'm not so upset by these dips. Anyway we aren't looking bad on the BTC chart - we are right around the E-Line. We'll shoot above it, we'll dip below it, it doesn't matter. We are still going up, we are still on track to hit the ATH by the end of November, then the real fun starts next year. By that time I should be he largest holder of XRP outside of Ripple (just kidding).

    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.

    XRP Roundup - Why I am buying

    Fill up that hopium pipe, here's my stress free run down of where we are at: Charts : We look to be heading down to the long term bear reversal line, which I peg at around 43c AUD, this is concerning, but not surprising. We should see a strong bounce here, or a dip under then back up. I am buying. Correlating with the BTC/USD chart, we are at a decision point with BTC, will we push up through this chop zone, or pull back. I am betting on BTC pulling back to 9k USD before it runs again. This will drag XRP down, likely below the long term support momentarily. This is where I will buy, hopefully around 36-38c AUD. This price reversal will be temporary, and should not be feared. Why? Fundamentals! Ripple is poised to drop some serious news into the market which will actually move us. Trumps tweet about crypto was about calling out "non-regulated" cryptos, and dampening down the BTC run, which he see's as China led, and rightfully so (51%, miners, we all know). The key words here are unregulated, based on thin air, unlawful behaviour. This clearly excludes Ripple who is working with regulators, has a purpose and has KYC and a ledger allowing the tracking of finances through the system, reducing the illegal activities. Now right around the same time, Brad Garlinghouse tweets the following: This is a reminder to the community, yes XRP will get SEC clarity, and the ruling will be clearing ETH and XRP through a similar hybrid definition. Note the confidence here, they are partnering like crazy with banks, pushing into the US market through Moneygram, HSBC and doing deals quickly everywhere but the US. If the US chooses to stay out of the this movement, they will be left behind. Signing every bank in India is a clear signal here, along with Middle Eastern countries, Brazil, Japan, Phillipines etc etc. The message is clear, this is happening, and the US will be at a disadvantage if they don't get on board. Couple this with the IMF Lagarde history, her move to the European Central Bank, BIS meetings and progress, the train has left the station. The asian markets are also on board, with China being the last man standing in some regards. BTC does not have the technology to support where we are going, this is common knowledge and should not even be a concern. Price Suppression : Yes it's likely happening, and I think it's being controlled for the purposes of regulation and BTC competition. Trumps tweet mentioned the "Highly Volatile" nature of cryptocurrencies. If you look closely, XRP has not been as volatile as BTC the last 6 months, while we want to see gains, this is not something to fear. Plans within Plans. I think this price suppression is about removing volatility while SEC clarification takes place. We also have BTC maxi's working to suppress the price, through fear of competition,but this will be nothing compared to the money that will flow into XRP once we see SEC clarity and over ride that control. Summary : I am not selling till we see SBI, BIS, SEC, IMF all play their cards. Do not confuse a speculative asset like BTC with a fundamental asset like XRP. It's gambling vs an investment, make your choice and let it play out. Do not sell at a loss through fear, you become the free lunch you seek.

    The Poker Analogy

    Just wanted to take a moment to expound on an interesting analogy that was made in another thread about poker. Credit to @Spekul8 for smartly making a very apt metaphor that I think deserves its own thread. Just a bit of background, I am a somewhat avid online poker player as a hobby in my downtime (read: I have a full time real job). Ironically, online poker has provided the only real life use case for BTC that I have utilized, as this is the easiest way to get money in and out of poker sites for US players. (For our international friends, the US has a silly law that allows you to play poker in casinos but not online, at least for most states). Anyway, the analogy was made of holding a pair of aces (pocket aces) in Texas Holdem. At this point, before the flop (when the first 3 community cards are dealt), you know unequivocally that you hold the best hand. This is a mathematical truth and thus you can feel very confident about betting aggressively. In the example that was given, however, the first 3 cards came out Queen, Jack and Two. It was suggested at this point that your aces are no longer any good and that you would be making a foolish error to continue betting. This is where the analogy starts to become more applicable to our current situation. Mathematically, you are still highly likely to have the best hand. In fact, if you are smart, you are praying that one of your opponents holds AQ or AJ and will stick around long enough to pay you off with a nice pot win. However, doubt can creep in at this point because the flop didn't explicitly HELP you. Maybe one of your opponents has QJ... maybe J2... maybe QQ. You could allow fear of the worst case scenario to scare you out of acting on what is mathematically still a very favorable hand. The point is that it can be very difficult to continue to be confident in something when doubt sets in. It would be easy to play the above hand with great confidence if the flop came 2 J A, giving you three of a kind (a "set" in poker parlance), but this rarely happens. Instead, you have to understand mathematically the odds of winning are in your favor with the top pair and play accordingly until you get firm evidence to the contrary. This directly applies to our situation. I think we all got into XRP because we believed it was the best cryptoasset, but we haven't flopped our proverbial "set" yet and thus it is easy to doubt. But all of the news, objectively, is positive. XRP WILL be used in large quantities, this is certain, at least by Moneygram. Ripple and the other companies that are championing XRP continue to work to build on existing use cases and find new ones. We are backing the most professional team in the crypto space. Nothing is guaranteed, risk is everywhere, but the potential is almost limitless. I think we are holding pocket aces.

    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.

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.

    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?

    Epic Pennant on BTC Chart

    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.

    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.

    Devil's advocate re: XRP sales

    The last few weeks have seen a lot of talk about Ripple's programmatic sales of XRP, along with the "dumping" of XRP by Ripple executives. Much of the discussion centers around a coordinated dump because of a lack of belief in the future of XRP by these parties or a "crypto Ponzi". What if the actual reason is quite the opposite? I remember during the great bull run in 2017/2018, the executives of Ripple, particularly Garlinghouse, having to go on CNBC and discuss their multi-billionaire status as the price of XRP rose. Many questions arose about the ethics of a company holding so much of a digital asset that was rapidly appreciating and many thought that this was unsustainable. What if they are making a coordinated effort to offload their XRP at relatively low prices (through escrow sales, individual sales, charity, etc) to avoid the appearance of impropriety in the future if and when XRP should rise in value again? Is it not possible that they fully expect XRP to become more valuable and are thoughtfully distancing themselves from ownership of the asset so that this does not become a focal point in the future? I can easily foresee a scenario in which XRP rises in value and Ripple the company becomes a target of ire of the public and elected officials for owning so much of it; perhaps this is a means to temper those expected criticisms. It certainly is also possible that this is one giant scam, but somehow this doesn't fit the narrative. These are highly successful people who hail from other large companies, I hardly think they have decided to engage in the world's biggest heist on the public stage (though one must admit the possibility I suppose). At any rate, I don't see much of anything that has changed recently, other than people have decided to talk about something that we have known about for years. Frustration from the recent price swings, I suppose, especially in relation to BTC's recent rise. I will point out, as other much more technically inclined folks on this forum have, that every giant leap in XRP price has occurred just after a massive dip in XRP/BTC. I look for us to hit 2000 sats and then off the races. Time will tell how that prediction ages

    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.

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.

    It's amazing how fanboys here always find a way of turning a negative into a positive

    I've already concluded those payment systems will be enhanced by a settlement system offered by a company called Ripple.

    Holy. Moly. All of those are either openly RippleNet members, members of Ripple's Global Payments Steering Group, or rumored partners. I don't have time to dig up the articles for all of them, but holy **** does this smell like Ripple.

    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.

    So if we don't pay someone or some entity we don't have the right to criticize their work, some logic this.. What are we suppose to discuss on a forum then - just be some blind cheerleaders? If I'm a lead of a feature/release and my release gets delayed by 2+ years I'd be fired after 1 year max.

    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%

    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.

    Devil's advocate re: XRP sales

    I agreed with everything you said, until your last few sentences. I'll take a $99-to-$40 drop any day over a $3-to-25¢ one. On your broader point, however, way too many are emotionally invested. They're still not as annoying as the ones who are ostensibly here to save us from ourselves, though.

    Devil's advocate re: XRP sales

    there is a direct correlation between the price being down and an increase in conspiracy theories as to why the price is down. notice during green days, runs, the price moving up,etc that no one cares about the 'why'. everyone celebrates the runs but never asks why. this right here tells me the vast majority of people invested in crypto are armchair investors and that this is the cause of their stress; they simply allow emotions to take over. im also still convinced the majority of people here wont make $100,000 or more in xrp. i say this because, if they cant handle a price drop from $3 to .25, how are they ever going to withstand the stress of the price dropping from $99 to $40? be prepared my friends. right now we have it easy. dont wish for the price to skyrocket just yet because once it does, youre really going to start seeing panic.

    Xpring invested projects

    Finally, I'm glad to see this topic being discussed . A few months ago, I pointed out some issues relating to this topic. There are so many things but here's what comes first: Ripple has a problem to attract developers. For that matter, it started the acceleration program but again it fails to attract developers for the xrpl and therefore changed the focus on broader crypto projects. It should convey a large survey to determine the 'why'. Since the beginning Ripple hasn't had any strategy for XRP. It's something but..what Since XRP is not owned by Ripple but rather they act as a steward for safeguarding the value, the question then arises why a single entity should be in control. Could a XRP governance entity fulfill a better role? What is the purpose of the escrow? Ripple has always been saying we are working closely with regulators and yet when the regulators say something, ripple nor XRP are mentioned but you hear about BTC and eth like e.g. the report Brad was bragging about. A whole paragraph was devoted to eth and between brackets 'XRP has some similar features' And so on..
