  1. Paper Wallet questions/concerns

    @gray thank you for your thorough explanation. Made a copy of it for when I need to explain this to someone.
  2. Ripply Wallet trustworthy?

    Thank you for your reply
  3. @winston thank you for your response. However I don't understand the bride currency argument. If BTC goes up the price of XRP expressed in BTC will seem to go down. Looking at a XRP /BTC chart this would trigger selling not buying. For someone going fiat -> BTC -> XRP the price of BTC does not matter.
  4. @goldstar111 thank you for your reply. You are saying that automatic trading formulas are used which explicitly follow price development of e.g. BTC or ETH unless there is some fundamental reason to shut it down until a new equilibrium is reached. Explains the counter intuitive price action. However my question kind of remains. Why would someone choose to set their formulas this way? If there is uncertainty about BTC would it not make sense to flee into stable alternatives like XRP?
  5. Let me first state that I am long on XRP. Been holding since 2014/15. Believe in the use case, the strategy, the technology and the team. Expect XRP to appreciate in value due to real world usage and subsequent mainstream speculation. The current speculation in this shallow crypto space is just foreplay. To my question. I am still puzzled by the price movement correlation between BTC and altcoins (incl. XRP). I would expect an inverse correlation (apart from the inflow of new money into the crypto space). As people are unsure about e.g. a possible BTC fork the first of August I would expect money moving from BTC to alternatives. In other words BTC price declining and some of the altcoins increasing. Can someone explain why this is not the case?
  6. Anybody worried about SWIFT instant payment

    @JoelKatz, @Michael are you willing to comment on how Ripple sees these developments with SWIFT / Hyperledger and the Circle announcement? Maybe you could provide a comparison table like you did for the differences between XRP, ETH and BTC. I am not convinced that multiple solutions will exist next to each other if they all serve the same exact use case and one of them is superior in e.g. speed or cost saving. (Before anyone accuses me of FUD I have been following Ripple since 2014 and have been holding XRP since. I am genuinely interested in how this space is developing)
  7. Not sure how to understand the news about SWIFT having an instant payment gateway ready end of this year. Does anyone have more info about this? https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/30689/instant-payments-top-of-mind-for-swift-and-eba-clearing
  8. Ripply Wallet trustworthy?

    @xrpwallet. How as a layman can i be sure the code is really generating a random and valid keypair and not just issuing key pairs from a predefined list? This doubt has held me back from setting up cold storage. Some people have pointed me to the relevant parts in the code of a key pair generator however I do not understand the code. 98% sure it is safe but would like to have the 2% doubt removed as well. A Ripple issued or verified wallet would do the trick for me.
  9. New project: XRP Wallet Lite - What do you think?

    Looks nice. Will you also release an IOS version?
  10. Paper wallet withdrawal

    But how as a layman can I be sure that, however unlikely, these wallets don't send the secret key to the programmer of the wallet? Is there a way in which you can test that the public and the secret key match on an offline computer? The whole purpose of cold storage is the offline aspect. On the other hand you don't want to find out that you have send a large amount of money to the RCL which you cannot access because the keys don't match.
  11. Ripple is in major trouble

    @JoelKatz I want to express my appreciation for how you stay factual, transparent and to the point in a discussion with someone who is insulting you and simply not willing to change his mind. This is not about facts. This is psychological. I guess you try to educate the other readers in that thread. Don't let the ones saying it cannot be done stand in the way of the ones doing it. Keep up the good work.
  12. Maybe covered already. But why is there no arbitrage between CoinOne (0,42) and Poloniex (0,32)? You would expect some english speaking korean person would make use of this opportunity. Probably I am missing something. Don't like the price development on Poloniex. Seems fishy to me. Also the DDOS attacks when there is a rally. Glad more exchanges are coming online.
  13. I'd like to take over xrpchat

    @karlos XRPchat is the place to be to keep up to scratch with Ripple developments. I can understand it takes significant effort and resources to keep it tidy. As the ecosystem grows this will only become a bigger task. I really appreciate your (and the others moderators) time and effort. I would be open for a monthly subscription fee to keep the site running full force. I think this site contributes to XRP 's growth and that's in all our interests. Please consider @lucky 's proposal if you are no longer able (or willing) to maintain the entire site.
  14. Ripple price affected by bank failures?

    Curious. Do you know how it was compromised?
  15. @Duke67 thank you for going through the trouble of making screenshots. Much appreciated. I will check it out when I am home again. Is this the jatchili's minimal ripple wallet?
