    Fair XRP - XLM comparison

    I guess you're referring to this --->> https://www.gartner.com/en/research/methodologies/magic-quadrants-research I don't think I've come across it before.

    Who’s Dumping Now?

    No idea, lol..was gauging wallets near the 1,000 position...I figure if those wallets are solid (no weak hands), then that's what matters most, since they have the most XRP and generally probably more experience because of the size of their wallets to affect market prices via weak hands.

    Who’s Dumping Now?

    Yeah, things are staying the same for higher-end accounts (e.g., top 8% of top 1% of accounts, roughly the top 1,000 accounts). What I find interesting is that back in December 4th of last year when my portfolio took off, the global marketcap was worth about $349B, and now my portfolio is down to about the same value as before, but the global marketcap is down to about $192B, but my portfolio still has slightly more value now than it did then, so maybe it's a combination of weak hands selling, picking good coins that drop less in value over time than other altcoins, etc. I don't mind my porfolio gaining in value as a percentage of the global crypto marketcap relative to last year, but what scares me is that if this market rebounds and I'm not in the cryptos that go up on the next bull run.

    lol...you might be right about bitcoin. It's market dominance is now at almost 54% and the global marketcap has just sunk slightly below 200B USD. What a sh*tty market....great news all over the place, and the market is still correcting from all the newbies who tried to catch the crypto wave back in Q4 of last year - that plus possible market manipulation, regulatory uncertainty, BTC ETF rejection, etc. I don't know.

    Marketcap's much more important metric of "overtaking", but yeah, not much more left to go 'til xlm passes xrp...it might even trigger xlm bullrun that makes all other coins go down in value, like XRP once did to all other coins. That would be interesting to see...I think only BTC, ETH, and XRP have pulled that off before.

    I don't know...don't have the answers to everything, but offhand, I don't know what you're talking about...I'll see if I can come around to looking into it if I get the time. Well, part of the reason I believe is that SDF was never able to distribute all the XLM for free that they had planned because their airdrop was gamed by losers, so it could be that they used the XLMs that they weren't able to distibute free to users as a means by which to expand the stellar ecosystem, or maybe they will plan on using them to distribute to the unbanked.

    Partner only. IBM had the opportunity to, but decided against holding any stellar as they thought it might qualify them as some kind of "Money Service Business" if they were seen with XLM on their balance sheet.

    Was on youtube. New videos of "Stellar and Facebook" partnership - they will likely have typical BS price pumping effect that's inherent in this space.

    Damn, XLM has just passed EOS in marketcap. That was fast. Wasn't expecting it this soon. Anyway, back to hitting those articles....a job's a job. :*( additional comment: I wasn't expecting XLM price to move up that quickly this soon, and now that I look closer, this change in marketcap rank is significantly more due to EOS' price decline over the last 24 hours than XLM's price rise over the same period: EOS has had 4.36 times as much price movement in the negative direction in the last 24 hours as XLM has had in the positive price movement direction.

    I think Jed no longer cares about making money (he's already a billionaire on paper), and Joyce Kim has had a positive influence on him I believe insofar as the direction of Stellar is concerned...I've seen older interviews of her...she's very intelligent, and a proponent of open source movement, so Ripple is like Redhat linux or "Microsoft", and Stellar is like Linux Foundation in a way. This is about creating a lasting, positive legacy for this space that's not controlled or at least not as influenced by legacy interests, IMO.

    Thx, that's nice of you to say, but I'm just like you guys...the only difference is that this is the only "job" I do, so I've put more time into it than the average investor, doesn't mean I'm necessarily right.

    I'm not against you guys hodling XRP because I am an XRP hodler myself. Some of you might think I am, but I honestly feel like a part of this XRP forum/community and have been with XRP for ages. I just post stuff here to give others food for thought, just like a number of you have done for me regarding XRP. None of us has a crystal ball of the future - as investors, we gotta stay on top of things. Even doing this full time, news is coming out at an exponentially increasing rate...it's getting hard for me to keep up, got about 200 articles at this very moment, backed up from last Friday that I haven't looked at yet...and things keep stacking up on a daily basis..lol...if this keeps up, I'll have to get 'picky' and let some articles go, but currently I'm trying to read all articles of numerous crypto websites I've subbed to and some youtube videos I can get my hands on...lol

    Not financial advice, just my opinion: Anyway, I'm not getting rid of my zerps, even if stellar goes sky high. Historically, intuitively there has been a strong positive correlation in prices between XRP, XLM whenever XRP price takes off, so would that positive correlation still hold if XLM takes off first for a change? And this all makes sense because there are only two major cryptos competing specifically for the cross-border payments market, and these cryptos are the most similar to one another, not saying that the postive correlation is guaranteed if XLM takes off first, but it just seems like common sense to me, if XLM price takes off, some investors will feel like they missed out and at the same time XRP holders might be inclined to hodl even more, so...but, we know it's worked out in the XRP to XLM 'direction', so it remains to be seen what happens if and when things go in the 'opposite direction'.

    I thought they were starting to win over people in this space by making all those highly public donations - I thought it was a great PR move, but I do not understand this Bill Clinton move, especially to investors in this space, the investors in this space being one of the most important aspect outside of the FIs Ripple is targeting, IMO.

    Lots of hypotheticals on my part, but succeeding in this space is not as easy as lining up your dominoes and then knocking them down - it's a game of chess IMO and we're in opening moves, strategy will be ongoing and dynamic...there are no guarantees in this space.
