    Live4xrp reacted to RikkiTikki_is_Back in Proposal of an Economy of Things Architecture and an Approach Comparing Cryptocurrencies †   
    Good read from MDPI if you don't know who they are I posted a blurb below  that is on the front page of their site.  They mention Ripple when talking about XRP but we all know what they are talking about. The article is fairly recent to.

    Live4xrp reacted to JCASA in XRP a fraud?   
    How many of you guys think that we're getting screwed here and that Ripple isn't telling us everything? Why is it that there's been so much noise about xrp and all these other conspiracy theories but XRP never goes up in price? Has anyone given it any thoughts that we might end up getting scammed and that all the ones that got rich was them the creators and administrators.

    Live4xrp reacted to NightJanitor in A Little Birdie Told Me...   
    First-order logic on that one would maybe look something like the following bit:
    IF one assumes that the big fight is over escrow, AND IF one assumes that it's going to remain Ripple's property, THEN... only one way to get a vote on what to do with it.
    And that's to take a position in Ripple stock.  I haven't looked at the cap table / share class structures / voting power per class in a while;  does that all look on the level or anything Google/Facebook-y about it where 2% of the shares somehow control 99% of the voting rights?  I've never been a fan of that - needs to be fixed, if so, pre-IPO.
    The voting rights are where most of the value is located, long-term... if those aren't distributed evenly, then it's just another "along for the ride with the founders" thingie (and the stock will never trade like it ought to, reflecting an extremely long-term competition over short-term micro-monetary RippleNet policy/rates/etc).
    I like a little more discipline in my public company mgmt teams... Apple never would have started paying a dividend / provided discipline if they hadn't addressed that bit;  they'd just be plodding along like fb/goog/twtr/amzn, totally subject to whims of management doing whatever it fancied (with no accountability to shareholders).
    (I used to be sort of blase about that... until some of those companies became monopolies...  Nowadays I'm a little more attuned to the value of shareholder governance.  Nothing personal - doesn't matter who's running what company - if I own "shares" but I don't get a say via voting rights, what do I really own?)
    (That's probably why a lot of these Class B / tracking issues for big companies provide like 1/1-millionth of a vote per share - otherwise they'd just be legally classified as like "Congratulations, you own a collectible stamp issued by Alphabet, Inc which provides you no voting rights or profit sharing - but ain't it pretty?  Soon, we're going to issue them on an NFT-blockchain - we know how you like buzzwords! - and then everyone will know that that tiny piece of Google memorabilia is yours - and only yours!*  Also, we'll be instituting a registration fee, yearly, to renew your license to actually own the thing that we're not quite sure what to call, just yet - but the PR dept is working on something fabulous to make you feel like it's really something.  Pricing to come, soon!")
    How *those* ever got past SEC and listed/traded on *stock* / *securities* markets was always a mystery to me... but now that I see what they mean by "protecting investors" - it all becomes a little clearer...

    Live4xrp reacted to Xrpdude in SEC Stumbles In Ripple Case, Lost In A Maze Of Its Own Making   
    I have to say I found the action absolutely astonishing, I'm in the UK. We're a million miles away from being perfect but I couldn't imagine a govt regulator (ICO, FSA, HSE, LA, FA etc etc - take your pick!) Behaving in this way, by this way I should clarify. I mean initiation of legal action after such a long period of silence, in fact arrogantly ignore cries for clarity, then the CEO resigning one day after the action. It is nothing short of a disgrace. It's disgusting. I hope these guys pull their fingers out, Gary seems like a good, cool, level headed man - I hope he does the 'right' thing and moves this quickly to resolution while providing the space with more clarity.

    Live4xrp reacted to Gilligan in Did the SEC Break the Law Protecting Attorney-Client Confidentiality?   
    My opinion is that Jed McCaleb, one of the founding members who sought this legal advice gave it to them willingly (probably under an agreement that he be granted immunity in any litigation resulting from it.)     Yet another way for him to stick it to Ripple.

    Uh...no. 
    To your first comment, it highlights that that the competitor (read: SEC) has substituted all players and coaches. 
    To your second comment, that's navel gazing. The world is much bigger than the petty legal discussions in one country. XRP is global. Qatar, Zimbabwe, India, Japan ... they don't care about this. They care about being able to move any amount of any currency to anywhere in the world instantly and for free-ish #SeeMetrics

    Live4xrp reacted to Alluvial in Court filings in SEC case - Answer deadline and a few more interesting attorneys entered for Ripple   
    I checked the Pacer website and saw that the Answer to the SEC Complaint is to be filed with the court no later than March 5, 2021.  That deadline applies to all defendants (Ripple, BG and CL).  Ripple's attorney said the other day that the Answer to Complaint would be filed in the upcoming weeks so it could very well be before the deadline (usually answers aren't filed early, but in this case it likely will).
    Also noticed the entry of seven more attorneys on behalf of Ripple, including one MARY JO WHITE, the former SEC Chair from 2013 through 2017. 
    It's definitely on!
