  1. I feel it is important that the XRP Community sees this. Thank you for your time.
  2. Thank you so much for your encouraging words...I am just trying to do my part. Blessings!
  3. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! I am excited about what we were able to accomplish last week, so I'm glad that the community has enjoyed it. We should all feel good for what we have done...it was an amazing experience! #XRPforGood
  4. Thank you both very much...I have to say this is a very fair question. To answer, yes, any Coil funds received will be used for filter donations. It is very difficult for me to separate out "personal tips" from filter donations, so everything goes to filters. I am very passionate about getting these filters to as many people as we possibly can! I see the change they are making in people's lives and wish I could do more now. Alas, I am VERY grateful for the XRP community and what has already been accomplished! Now, if XRP could just go ahead an "moon" we could accomplish a lot more! Thank you for reading and for following along! Orlando Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727AZ using Tapatalk

  6. My pleasure! Thank you for taking the time to read this!
  7. It has been a while since I last wrote a blog or article. So, I wanted to let the #XRPCommunity know about the water filter distribution we did last week with Filter of Hope water filters that had been donated by the community. I will let the blog, my first on Coil, do the speaking. https://coil.com/p/BigBuck/The-Power-of-Water/eoDBTdFzf

    Hi! I'm Bob

    @BobWay, you have been a breath of fresh air blown into the conversation about Ripple and XRP. I appreciate your willingness to answer so many questions with such a (seemingly) honest take and position. I look forward to listening to more of your conversations and learning more about where "we" are today because of your efforts and those of so many others. Blessings! **Edit** that offer for the XRP Community blog stands...message me if you're interested.

    Hi! I'm Bob

    If you're interested in a blog we have the xrpcommunity.blog site...let me know if you'd like to publish there and we can get you set up easily. Your contributions would be greatly appreciated by the community, I am sure!
  10. This is a great idea! And I know the GSG is working on putting vetted charitable projects into a "single location" so that people can feel confident about giving to these organizations and projects. @Truckdriver, if you have a specific organization or project you'd like everyone to look at just let me know...you can send a message if you'd like. Thank you very much for your heart and@Hodor, thank you very much for all the passion you have for and compassion you have in the XRP Community!
  11. I understand the need to get away and renew. That said, enjoy your time away and the projects you are working on! XRP will still be here whenever you decide to venture back this way. Blessings!
  12. As an aside, gasoline is a by-product of refining oil for kerosene and other "lamp oils." Rockefeller didn't know what to do with the "waste" he was producing initially...he just dumped into the local rivers in am attempt to rid himself of the flammable waste. He then convinced the auto manufacturers above to use the combustion engine which would use gasoline...the very product he was currently just throwing away so he could sell kerosene. This was a huge coup, because not only did he own the lamp oil market, by default he also owned the gasoline markets, hence how Standard Oil was able to grow so large so quickly. Genius.
  13. I agree...this gap will help with retail investors who begin to decide XRP is worth a "second" look (see what I did there!). And yes, I've seen the same thing...alot of people who have been very tribalistic coming out saying they are jumping into XRP...good things are to come! Thank you very much for reading this!
  14. Thank you very much GiddyUp! I appreciate your encouragement! And, you definitely hit the short version of the article! I am looking forward to the day when everyone else in the crypto universe sees exactly what we see with XRP...one day...and one day soon, I believe.
  15. Thank YOU Plikk for the compliment! I grateful my blogs are well accepted by the XRP Community!
  16. I agree that I doubt people are trading XRP and ETH based on keeping or getting one or the other in that #2 spot. However, the markets are defining who they want to be in that spot, whether the trades are actively happening that way or not.
  17. No kidding! The fight the last few days over the BCH fork has been quite a sight to see...I'm glad we can just keep on working! Thank you!
  18. Thank you Panda!! I appreciate you taking time out to read this!
  19. In my latest article in@ModernConsensus I address the current battle between XRP and ETH for #2 on the market listings...but is that the real battle taking place? Thank you for reading and sharing! I look forward to your comments! https://modernconsensus.com/cryptocurrencies/ethereum/battle-ripple-xrp-ethereum-eth/
  20. I'm hoping that some of the people I've tagged at Ripple and other channels I've passed it through will get this to this right people. Only time will tell...but I agree with you on all points...the publicity would far surpass the monetary cost of planting less than 500k trees. It would be a HUGE coup for Ripple! @JoelKatz...hate to ping you again because I know you're busy...but the article is here, too!
  21. Thank you very much! Yes, the technology is great...the energy consumption should scare us all!
  22. Thank you very much! When I first got into crypto i didn't even think about it...it took several months for me to realize the significant differences. I am very glad that the XRPL is not only a superior technology to PoW, but is also a more energy efficient technology!
  23. Here is my latest article in@ModernConsensus. I discuss the environmental impact of PoW, specifically the bitcoin network, and the XRPL and what the XRP Community is trying to accomplish. Please share across your social media platforms! I look forward to your comments below. https://modernconsensus.com/cryptocurrencies/bitcoin/the-staggering-environmental-cost-of-blockchain/
  24. Thank you very much!! Yes, it made it here...and I am very grateful! Thank you so much for your willingness to help provide clean drinking water and hope to families that need It! #XRPforGood
