    Chewiecoin got a reaction from Cesar1810 in Banking on Bitcoin - Netflix documentary   
    Hi guys
    I watched the Banking on Bitcoin, documentary on Netflix this afternoon. It was light entertainment. I enjoyed it. Had some historical facts about pre Bitcoin and the cipher punks that I didn’t know.
    The documentary regularly refers to a host of Bitcoin expert commentators who seem to be Bitcoin fanboys. Bitcoin will change the world etc etc. And guess who is one of the experts, Nathaniel Popper the journo from the NY Times. He was all over it, talking about Bitcoin it’s history it’s benefits etc. I know he wrote a book about Bitcoin as well. To me it just shows how biased he is towards Bitcoin and why he is so worried about Ripple and determined to spread FUD about it. I am certain he is genuinely concerned about what Ripple could do in the future and how this may affect precious BTC.
    The documentary also highlighted a few problems with Bitcoin ie its scalability and slowness of verification (they didn’t mention fees or electricity needed to mine). I was laughing through it when they highlighted the problems. I know a Blockchain technology that can solve this!!

    For me, it was when I first started researching crypto and Bitcoin in mid-2017. I read a lot about bitcoin but couldn't work out what it did and why it was so valuable? It takes too long to move and is very expensive so I couldn't see the payment system it had promised and a "store of value, like digital gold" ok, maybe.
    Then I saw Ripple (it wasn't referred to as XRP back then) and it was 20c so I thought "what is this about"? I can remember reading my first few articles and reviewing the Ripple website and I was hooked. Thousands of transactions per second on the ILP, settlement in seconds at virtually no cost. The current SWIFT system, 40-year-old tech which takes days to settle.  $5 Trillion in cross-border payments per day. The ability with XRP to remove $27 trillion in dormant capital. WOW, can this be real?
    Then I read about xCurrent, and the ongoing development of xRapid and xVia. 100 banks at the time partnering with Ripple and trialling the technology.
    I am ready to invest. It takes me a few days to work out and another week or so to get verified on an exchange and then the Amex news drops and the price starts jumping. "Damn it, I missed it" I thought as the price started climbing. I got online there and then and invested in XRP. My first buy at 25c
    I have bought on the way up and on the way down. I bought again only last week. I will continue to buy more at these great prices and why wouldn't I? 
    We are in such a better position now than when I first started researching nearly a year ago. Hundreds of xCurrent and xVia partners, xRapid being trialled by very well know FI's and about to go live. Ripple, through xPring, funding over 100 startups with projects that will use XRP. Codius and Coil.
    So when do I admit I made the right decision?  . . . . Immediately after I first invested and every day since.

    Despite your attempts to say otherwise nope I have nothing to apologise for or admit. I still have made the right decision in investing in XRP some piece of news comes long that confirms otherwise or we go to zero. Neither of those things have occurred and in fact the news of XRP’s potential success has just gotten stronger and stronger. Look at ODL volume. That’s real utility. I haven’t sold any of my XRP and don’t intend to as I firmly believe higher prices are coming. When? Who knows? Your guess is as good as mine.

    It’s all good. My predictions were off but so were many others. I still stand by my $100  long term prediction. It just seems to be taking a lot longer. Am I way off and XRP never gets above $3.40 again? Absolutely I could be!! I am not an insider or god forbid a riddler. I’m just a guy that has done thousands of hours of research and still firmly believes in the success of XRP. If the trolls or maxxis want to attack me for my beliefs go ahead. But I won’t shy away from them!!

    I clearly suck at price predictions!!
    I still believe that if Ripple succeeds in having XRP replace SWIFT as the dominant form to move money across borders, which frees up trillions in nostro/vostro accounts worldwide, then we will see $100 on day. 
    Your guess on whether this will happen or when is as good as mine.

    Well hello to you too.. You don’t know me. So why do you profess to? I bought in before the Dec 2017 run and bought all the way up and also all the way down. 

    Check my history in here and my posts. It all matches. Not that I have to justify myself to you.
    And don’t tell me how to behave. I am optimistic and still am. Do more than 5 minutes research and you would be too. 
    Congratulations to anyone who thinks XRP is doomed and has been professing it for years. That’s not me. I’m here, I’m holding. One of us will be right and only time will tell.
