    Progress: A Short Story

    @XRPeteSampras, Wow! What a great story! You had me engaged all the way through! Great job! Loved the reference to David as AI...when he walked in the door that's who I was hoping it was going to be. Great job!

    Another reason they may not have wanted to say anything is because of the pending lawsuits. I know we would all like to see the SEC essentially declare the lawsuits null and void publically, however, there could be some behind the scenes discussions going on regarding plaintiff's rights, etc. I'm just speculating here...but, I wouldn't be surprised to the the SEC make an announcement that coincides with a judge's ruling that XRP is not a security.

    The old XRP symbol is horrible

    I don't disagree with you here. The timing of the "symbol discussions" and Ripple rolling there symbol out for NYC couldn't have been worse. I can only say that the timing was truly so bad because there wasn't collaboration with Ripple on this before hand. Ripple had NYC planned and the community was starting to plan a vote...they collided. I don't think anyone expected Ripple to roll out a new symbol/logo at that time. Thank you for your words of encouragement. Together, we can all make the XRP Community stronger and better. Blessings!

    @Bmatt44, I will apologize to you because my comment was not directed to you...your post just happened to be the last I read and the one I hit "quote" on when I started my reply. I do sincerely apologize for the miscommunication... My comment about FUD is truly about "fear, uncertainty, and doubt." Many fear Ripple gamed this vote some how. There is uncertainty about the voting process and who was involved. There is doubt that the vote was truly set up by the community for the community. I am trying to fix this in the best way I know how...by communicating. I have seen all the posts bashing this whole process and it finally got to me. I had to say something. Once again, I apologize to you because it appears I targeted your post as FUD...that is not the case. I was speaking about the fear, uncertainty, and doubt, in general, that is present within the community about this process. Once again, I will answer any questions you or anyone else might have. Blessings!

    And there are two sides to that coin, too. That was debated...ultimately, it was decided that because Ripple is part of the XRP Community that they, too, should be able to submit a design to be voted on.

    @rootvegetable, I understand your point about the timing of Ripple coming out with this symbol and the vote taking place. I can say, with all honesty, that discussions had been going on for almost 2 weeks about putting together a community vote prior to the shin-dig in NYC. When Ripple showed up to that with the symbol that they created it was a surprise to everyone who had started working on this project. That said, Ripple had obviously been working on that symbol for some time to have it ready for NYC. When communicating with Ripple they were totally open to a vote and, understandably, wanted to submit what they designed to be voted on. I agree the optics look like Ripple started this, but this was being talked about by some in the community before Ripple came out with their symbol and before "we" knew about their symbol. We even had disagreement with Ripple over some of the submissions that were being voted on, but they did not have any veto...there were parameters set and if a symbol met those parameters it was included to be voted on. In the end, the community voted for the symbol they wanted, which was the Ripple submitted symbol. It could have gone another way if the community so chose. Thanks for your feedback!

    I want to clear some FUD...Ripple was not involved in this voting process, other than submitting their symbol design and helping to get the word out. There were a lot of great individuals who came together to put this together. How do I know? I was one of them. Could things have been better? Yes. Were there some unforseen hiccups that had to be overcome? Yes. However, to say this was driven by Ripple is false and pays no tribute to all the people who worked behind the scenes to make this happen. Maybe everyone would have been happier without the vote and just putting Ripple's symbol out for all to use...I don't know. But with all the misinformation out there, I felt like it was time to speak up. I'd be more than willing to help answer questions you might have. But please, stop saying this was engineered by Ripple.
  10. There is actually a lot of speculation that this may be an actual strategy Ripple is trying to implement: if they can get the right "big bank" partner to utilize xRapid then that bank's "smaller partners" would not even have to bring xRapid in house...it would all be done through the "big bank." Obviously there are a couple of benefits here: 1) the big bank brings a lot of small banks with it, 2) selling the storied history of the big bank is easier than the short history of "Ripple the startup" (I can't stand that, BTW). Brad's comments about several banks using xRapid by EOY could be leveraged with just a scenario like this.
  11. Thanks for sharing! We've got to keep the truth in front of everyone!
  12. Thank you! That was a fun part for me...but it relates to consensus. That was also a fun game back in the day!
  13. Thank you! Lol...yes, sir, seems I have been looking at that site a lot lately...I want to understand this "machine" and the only way to do it is to dive right in!
  14. Thank you @RegalChicken for your support! I truly appreciate it!
