  1. Believe me I've been a regular reader of @Hodor's blog posts for over a year now. One of the best!
  2. @LeonidasH Must have taken a long time to gather all that information. Unfortunately I don't have the time to follow this 24/7 so this report is exactly what I needed to stay in the loop. Really appreciate your effort here, thanks!
  3. https://assets.kpmg.com/content/dam/kpmg/us/pdf/2018/11/institutionalization-cryptoassets.pdf Long read, it does not mention XRP or Ripple. However, if you are interested in the crypto space as a whole (especially the regulatory and tax issues involved with these new assets....you need to read this). Cheers!
  4. Saturday sleep in...into a cold shower, into a coffee, into this blog love it @hodor thank you!
  5. Just brewing my morning cup of JO and look at that a new blog post from @Hodor. Love it, perfect timing as always my friend. Thank you for your on-going work and persistence to provide quality information. You're one of a kind, enjoy the day!
  6. Nothing changed from yesterday, the author just turned off the (default UNL only) tab, it's still 48% dominance when that is turned on
  7. I don't know about anyone else, but I got goosebumps watching that video! Thanks for sharing @JoelQuinn

  9. It's a subsidiary of SBI Holdings, basically it's just another international remittance platform!
  10. For anyone interested in what SBI is up to, here is their 3 month financial report ending June 30th http://www.sbigroup.co.jp/english/investors/disclosure/presentation/pdf/180731presentations.pdf XRP is mentioned on pages (103, 108, 110, 111, 122, 127, and 132) 1) First blockchain remittence corridor(for SBI) from Japan to Thailand established and using xCurrent. We need as many corridors as possible, it will just increase the value of the network overtime. More banks, and companies will want to join RippleNet if there is a more efficient way to move money anywhere, anytime with lower costs. Great to see more remittance progress being made. 2) "SBI VC provides the narrowest spreads among spot transaction exchanges" Although it has the highest spread between the 3 digital assets listed, it's faster, cheaper and more efficient. I think with more liquidity in the market, the xrp spread will decrease even further. 3) Exploring the derivatives market! News from SBI yesterday: we are partnering with ClearMarkets. Now officially that partnership is shown in this report! This is yet another massive(but well known) use case for xrp. I'm not saying xrp will be used in every derivative to settle transactions. However, it is possible xrp could be used to settle a portion of either crypto based derivatives or a portion of all derivatives. Which, again for those of you who don't know is a market measured in the quadrillions of dollars. Maybe this all flows through codius, video below. Please recognize that this is all long term thinking, but it's shaping up to be very interesting to say the least). It's refreshing to see SBI working towards growing the xrp ecosystem along with Ripple and other developers.
