  1. Growing stronger every day

    This is great don’t get me wrong - but! - it is rising with the tide and not because XRP is being appreciated in any meaningful way as distinct from the rabble. I would like to see smart money placing bets on XRP for the longer term returns. This whole market smells suspiciously like a giant bubble ready to pop!

    Get ready for 2018. Merry Xmas to you all.

    Interesting analysis. I figure once XRP has more fiat pairs, it will be positioned to steal some of this market share from Bitcoin, acting as a "safe haven" of sorts in between trades. (It's what I used to do – on an amateur level – back in the Ripple Trade (official wallet) days.) Especially for institutional speculators, professional traders and such, who may see XRP as a "legitimate" financial instrument. Cryptocurrency is a mess now sure, but in future the big money will come in and help to tame things a little.
  4. Quick question for the og zerpers

    Ooh. If XRP does well before Xmas... I might have to order a bottle of this and I can say, "Cheers Larsen!". Look at that golden colour, lovely! (Never did finish that beer thread – haunts me...).

    Oh blimey, memory is hazy... what @Mercury said basically... I think it was a bit stressful for Hurukan as well.

    Good response!
  7. Remind them that the world is going digital, including money. Explain how Ripple's tech connects all payment networks together using a common standard, like the web or email. Let that soak in for a bit. Tell them this includes a digital 'reserve currency' that sits in between all these systems, ledgers and currencies and is designed somewhat like the euro, connecting all of Europe, except we all carry on using dollars or euro or whatever we like! Keep the language light and simple. No fancy words. Don't have to be 100% technically accurate, just paint them a picture. Maybe use an analogy about trade, e.g. shipping containers. Focus on features not current problems. 'Digital currencies' will reduce fees, enable tiny payments and new biz models, reach new markets and places, enhance security and transparency, etc.

    Guys this is really great stuff! Thanks for finding it and posting these slides, hope you don't mind but I tweeted some of these pics. Incredible progress Ripple have made.

    Oh my god, ZipZap! Forgot all about them! Haha, thanks for that!

    Actually this is a great point. The old timers have seen the absolute worst; we've been through the depths of despair – only a really deep understanding of the company, tech and vision has kept us going (and for many that "faith" has been rewarded). It is indeed exactly why this forum (and its predecessor XRPTalk) are/were such a great resource and community – the harshness has shaped a diamond, a rarity not seen elsewhere IMO. It's not just a pump/dump forum, far from it; there's a real sense of purpose around here and, as you say, patience with and support for newcomers and a desire to help or educate where possible. We were all newbies once! Great thread.
