  1. https://wirexapp.com/global/wirex-token anyone looking into this token launch? i can't see a HUGE amount of utility unless wirex really takes of, and it still seems pretty niche to me however, it IS a UK regulated money services business... which actually goes a bloody long way you can't screw around with financial products in the UK the way you can on F*cksville Island somewhere
  2. ooo now that is interesting -- coil getting its fingers in many pies LIKE
  3. sweet pdf -- was also posted in chat earlier -- can't remember who
  4. i think its a nice idea for adding to the sections tbh, i don't personally get a lot of the categories as they currently are but hey ho
  5. BoE seem friendly towards Libra/Facebook https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48711950 Perhaps more forward thinking than others?
  6. fresh off the presses: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48711950
  7. russia in a couple of weeks too - the race is on not to lose crypto biz/innovation
  8. so glad we have yet another thread on this, since the last four or five didn't quite satisfy my soul
  9. pretty underwhelming, for me personally -- but nice to see facebook coming into crypto anyway, privacy concerns aside
  10. yes -- a lot of plot/charcaters cut for the show, most understandable given the time compression, and sheer complexity and scope of the books however, i do think they should have done 9 seasons and not rush it the way they did and have to alter so much to fit such a weak ending
  11. https://www.theblockcrypto.com/2019/06/14/facebooks-cryptocurrency-partners-revealed-we-obtained-the-entire-list-of-inaugural-backers/ Wow
  12. yeah what @Tinyaccount said pretty much bitcoin is private, for example, but not truly anonymous... (pseudonymous perhaps at best, if you've mined your own to begin with and never touched KYC etc) but Big Data Analysis has completely 100% exposed bitcoin traceability, same for all current altcoins what we really need is privacy for the consumer/retail/p2p (no data mining, no trapped silos, etc) and for the banks to protect their clients as well, and for national security reasons in general... but a VALID, legally sanctioned court order should be able to force tracking of funds, just like you can track cash notes with IDs from store to store if necessary what we absolutely do NOT need is anonymous crypto-money, bc that's what gangs, terrorists, pedophiles, state-backed election tamperers, tax evaders, etc etc all want -- a terrifying future IMO if we have not only a dark web, but now a dark money web what i think we'll end up with is private-sector minting of fiat crypto-money, that gets tethered to ID and to a social purpose, so you literally bake in conditions into the money itself, and that money is coin based, NOT account based like xrp/btc/eth, etc that way every token/transaction history is potentially traceable only if you order mints/issuers to divulge info, but privacy is maintained for the consumer and average joe and data mining is rendered impossible bc the ID/metadata is never ever revealed upon usage, but only once if the government have reasonable/probable cause, a warrant, etc /rant
  13. i'm against anonymous money but all for private money, i think it's the best tradeoff to help fight serious crime while also preserving consumer/p2p data rights
  14. they have limits, read the small print
  15. not until eggs and milk are priced in xrp in my local store and it doesn't fluctuate in value 3000% in a year
  16. yeah that's what i said, x-border i.e. international
  17. X (as in, X units of, or as in cross-border) Ripple (obvious) Protocol (obvious) I think it's fine as is. Ripple isn't just a company name but also to 'ripple' a payment was a concept in the early days of trust and credit lines.
