    TJHODLER reacted to Tehol_Beddict in OneZero and it's many ties to Ripple/xrp/crypto   
    OneZero may be the largest bridge between crypto and financial institutions.
    Aside from the symbol for it's liquidity hub looking oddly like Ripple's logo (and one of XRP's 3 current logos?) and a transaction map that looks oddly like Ripple's node topology map... There are some interesting things to note.


    Yesterday, Broctagon Prime announced their a Crypto Liquidity Partnership Between Broctagon Prime and OneZero Financial. This included XRP:


     
    Before we dive into some more connections, what is OneZero? It's a liquidity hub that connects the liquidity providers below over the six major protocols/connectors listed (basically protocols that already much of financial world is already connected to:

     
    They also have these companies as ecosystem partners (there's some overlap):
     

    This includes liquidity providers like Integral, which already list XRP:
    Which is a major liquidity provider and pricing provider to Banks:



     
    and LMAX which already lists xrp:


    and Alpha and CFH clearing, both owned by PayTech which reported some unexplained exposure to crypto in a recent earnings release. 

    The article mentions Ripple but I assume their speculation is as good as mine:

     

     


    and GMO which already lists... XRP (and is opening up in the UK in addition to Japan):

    And ADS Securities which has a platform called OREX that... already lists XRP:


     
    and Doo Tech which trades crypto (can't find site):

    and exchanges that don't say what they do or have limited info:

    and Swissquote which lists XRP:

     
    and Traders Securities which has a company called Nextop that has this thingy:

    TJHODLER reacted to Chewiecoin in My analysis of Brad Garlinghouse at the Faster Future Forum in Bangkok   
    Here is the link if you haven’t watched the interview, it starts at 1hr 20.
    https://web.facebook.com/DigitalVenturesTH/videos/1642611169159661/?hc_ref=ARRHIxAMx_bNL6gwkOkLygotlDq6y8AbAjeAxTe0KBRwi9JZ6iMf34tmySuxm4QzMmQ&hc_location=group
    I thought this was an excellent interview. One of the best, I have seen with Brad. Very intelligent questions and they gave Brad plenty of time to answer.
    Here is my take away from the interview:
    1) Ripple is a payments company not a blockchain company or a crypto company. “We are solving a payments problem. We happen to use a blockchain technology and a digital asset to solve that payment problems”. A very interesting pivot from Brad and Ripple. It has been very noticeable recently that Ripple has deliberately changed its communication strategy and is not trying to be a blockchain or crypto company. They are a payment company and focused on solving a payments problem. They are differentiating themselves from other coins. Very smart move.
    2) Brad was an Uber driver. What!!  How many CEO’s of major companies were driving Uber when they got the call?
    3) “ICO’s have reduced the friction to raise capital and has exposed this to unqualified participants. People say they are buying a token but it doesn’t do anything”. Brad is very pro regulation trying to protect everyday investors in the dangers of ICO’s.
    4) Brad is sending $10,000 by plane again. Gees he has sent a lot of money around the world on planes to avoid SWIFT. He is very much staying on message. 
    5) “Swift has a 6% error rate in global transactions. In the tech world we aspire to 3 , 4 or 5 x 9’s of reliability. Our current global payments system has only 1 x 9 of reliability. That’s pretty embarrassing”. Brad is on the front foot attacking SWIFT. Again part of the pivot in Ripple’s communication strategy. 
    6) “We have 6 customers that we have announced using XRP. If you offer a better product at a cheaper price you will get a lot of people adopting that solution” - Absolutely, love it. How many other coins have real world adoption!!
    7) “If we can enable a real time payment instead of a prefunded payment we can accelerate the global engine of commerce. That’s good for banks and banks customers” - Love this quote. This quote is in relation to xRapid eradicating Nostro and Vostro accounts therefore eradicating the $27 Trillion in parked dormant capital sitting around the world. Can you imagine the global liquidity benefit if $27 Trillion in capital can be released. Oh the amazing potential. 
    8) “SWIFT is 70’s tech that needs a full upgrade to the age of the Internet”. - Look out SWIFT Ripple is coming after you.
    9) “We are signing up a new customer every week now” - This message has come out several times in the last week or so. It’s amazing news. One new customer a week. I am guessing most of these will be eased into Ripple through xCurrent first and then will be introduced (quite easily David Schwartz says) to xRapid. This is incredible news. Let me say this again. RIPPLE IS SIGNING UP A NEW CUSTOMER EVERY WEEK. Just let that sink in.
    10) Brad talks about the two biggest FUD arguments that XRP faces:
    “XRP is not a centralised technology. Anyone in this audience can download the open source technology to run a validator. If Ripple the company went away the XRP ledger would continue to exist”; and Ripple the company could succeed but XRP will not be successful. “Our goal is to develop an incredibly healthy XRP ecosystem. We own 60% of XRP. I am the most interested person, as CEO of Ripple, in making sure the XRP ecosystem is successful”. Yes, Yes. Love these anti-FUD quotes.  11) “I don’t check the price of XRP everyday . . . This is a 3 plus year journey. What I know for certain is that if we can continue to build the momentum of customer usage that continues to drive the velocity and demand for XRP, over a 3 plus year timeframe, I feel very comfortable about the opportunity to  continue to grow the value of the XRP ecosystem which is great for all participants” - Another great quote. Stop looking at the short term price. Look at the price in the next 3 years. This is such a valuable lesson for all of us. 
    12) “Ripple is not trying to solve a speculators problem. Ripple is trying to solve an institutional problem . . . that is measured in the Trillions of dollars that is focused on payment providers and banks.” Another good response to the impatient XRP investor who keeps asking “When Moon?”.
    13) “We see the ILP as the open source technology that underpins the internet of value.”  - I think we fail to realise the infinite use cases of Ripple and here is another one around the ILP which allows any ledger to connect with each other at virtually zero cost.  Brad talks about a possible future where the Bitcoin ledger and Ethereum ledger connecting with each other and to the Bank of America through the ILP. Can you imagine?
    14) “Our first vertical is payments. If we want permission to work on another vertical we have to nail it for our customers in payments and solve a really big problem. If we do that well, we are got to be in a great spot”. - Codius pre dated Ethereum. Brad says that he shelved Codius to concentrate on payments. I didn’t know that? Amazing. I learnt something new from this interview. A bold gamble but one that could definitely pay off. 
    A very educational and enjoyable interview. Brad is an amazing orator and an incredible ambassador for our investment. We are very fortunate to have him as Ripple’s CEO.
    I note some people complaining that he doesn’t say anything new. He doesn’t have to. He is spreading the XRP message to the masses. Remember, 99% of people haven’t heard about Ripple, XRP and/or blockchain. He explains the key concepts and advantages of Ripple and XRP very well, in a way that the every day person can understand. This is what we want. We want more investment from everyday people and institutional investors. Interviews like this enable that. 
    Brad also said that if you are a XRP investor and are prepared to go on the journey with him over the long term he wants to give you a hug and take a selfie with you
    Brad, come here and give me a hug big fella because I am a HODLer, thank you.

    TJHODLER got a reaction from Wesa182 in Investing in RippleLabs - some huge names came up   
    Now I don't know if this means anything or has been discussed among any other of the threads but I also want/ed to go down the rabbit hole. On one of the threads someone had a question - how can I invest in Ripple directly, basically becoming a shareholder in RippleLabs and someone replied that you had to be a serious type of investor and have a really good investor profile for you to be able to invest in RippleLabs. I decided to try and find one of these companies by looking up the Investment company (vehicle) that got mentioned in the thread

    Equityzen is one of these platforms that you can use to invest in RippleLabs. Once searching for Ripple, it takes you to a short company profile but something caught my attention and maybe you'll find this intriguing as well, SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THE INVESTOR TRACK RECORD ABOUT A QUARTER OF THE PAGE DOWN??? https://equityzen.com/trending/ripplelabs/ - there are some huge names there but again I could be missing something.
