    If Bender is right about a languishing XRP,  and Pablo is right about no value proposition in VET,   then I am screwed.  I’ve spent the last three years fairly confident that I would be able to retire soon.
    Now I’m wondering if that will ever happen.  Sorry...  but can’t see this improving for ages.  Unless Bitcoin fixes this.

    I could not agree more @Caracappa.  He/She seems to have migrated from being a contributor to being a whiner who never has anything interesting to add to the discussion.  I user ignored his/her comments a few months ago, but I kept noticing the constant smilies which he/she now admits are some sort of sign of a superiority complex.  Its all a bit sad and I am sorry I diverted the subject of this thread with my comments. 
    Kitao is much more interesting.

    @LetHerRip
    What happened dude. You went from a friendly contributor to a nasty angry and frustrated member in sept 2018, right when the promising 0,90 pump ended in a dump... that somehow broke your spirit it seems.
    Reading your posts you sold some in 2017 but preached hodl mostly. I sold some to cover the investment plus some bonus in the december 2017 pump. Ofcourse wish I sold all to buy in lower in 2019 but hey thats investing. Hindsight is a b*tch...
    If you really think it is all so bad as you say, please continue educating newer investors with facts or grounded opinions as before sept 2018, because since then not much more then 'going lower - exit scam - ripple scammers' comes out of your fingers... which is a shame as the quality before that was quite good actually!

    Write your future self a letter with exit points.  Stick to those points.  When every crypto begins a moonshot it'll be hard to sell. Most of all have patience and a little fun.

    We are up to 80k deaths. I don’t think the number of cases would have changed much unless we shut down way back in January which no country outside of China had any clue that would be necessary. The virus had already rooted into society by February. 
     
    I also think there would had still been a devastating effect on the economy if it was kept open. Take the NBA, college basketball, MLB for example... private enterprises were closing down on their own without government intervention. Consumers would not be spending money as they would be too afraid to go out with restrictions, and stock markets would still be crashing if not sharper and steeper than they did because of the fast spike in cases and deaths.
    One thing we can all agree on is we weren’t prepared for this and hopefully lawmakers can come up with a procedural way to handle things in the future when this is over.
    The crypto market crashing along with everything else makes sense to me as pandemic flash crash and it also makes sense to me that bitcoin should outperform assets in the future as it was designed to counter excessive devaluation of world currencies.

    I’d suggest to keep politics and religion out of this thread. I am sorry but to me you have just lost a ton of credibility bringing up some weird religious political viewpoints about Europe that hold little to no merit whatsoever.

    My reference to Trump's MO was not just in respect of this pandemic.  He has behaved in such ways so often there's no need to give examples.
    I made no comment about the CCP but for the record I find their tactics reprehensible ...but they are dictators and will do whatever they want.  Democratic leaders must be held to higher standards meaning outright lies and made up stuff is unacceptable.
    Stay stafe.

    And it already has.  The label Trump chose is entirely in keeping with his MO - division, deflection, denial.  It's unnecessary unless you have an ego as fragile as his.  We deal with the situation now.  Focus on blame, cause, remedial action later.
    As for Spanish flu almost no one knows its official name (H1N1) so we continue to use the original term, coined at the time without hesitation because back then racism / xenophobia was normal.

    Why on earth wouldn’t you just use its name...  CV-19 ?
    If you use anything other,  then I would question the motive behind needing to call it anything other than its name.  Seems self evident to me that it should be called by its name.

    The fear is that labelling it the China flu will cause hate and violence against the Chinese people living abroad.
    Trump mentioned that he is calling it that as the Chinese alleged that the US military was behind it.
    Whats interesting it that the US govt (by extension the UK govt as they share intelligence) knew about how bad the virus was in Jan and didn't take steps to get ready.
     Wonder why?  Was the pandemic the excuse needed to make the changes the Fed did and the stimulus the govt is injecting into the market.

    Hi all
    I went with two friends on an epic trip from Germany to Mongolia with a crappy car (Renault Kangoo) two summers ago. It took us 52 days and >20,000 kilometers. We went through Eastern Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgysztan, Kazakhstan and Russia to get there. We made some nice very footage (incl. drone) and I'm currently writing up the story on Coil. Have a look at it! Currently available episodes:
    The Beginning
    Eastern Europe
    Turkey
    Georgia & Azerbaijan
    Iran
    Turkmenistan
    Uzbekistan and "flat" Tajikistan
    The Pamir Highway
    Russia & Kazakhstan
    Have fun & I'm looking forward to comments (or questions?)!

    stickmonster reacted to Tripple in Uphold adds full support for deposits/withdrawals direct to GBP Bank Accounts.   
    Just a FYI for UK-based XRP holders... as the title says, this is great for UK holders of XRP because it creates a fast and secure route from XRP into GBP fiat withdrawals specifically.

    The announcement is available in the App. Quoted settlement time is 15 mins, and max withdrawal limit is £25,000! 

    Treat yourself.
