  1. That is correct. And Ripple, being privately held company, DO NOT OWE YOU ONE BIT OF EXPLANATION. Become an investor, own some Ripple (private) equity. You will be on the 'inside', more than being a xrp holder. Them's the rules. Don't like'em sell your xrp. Make peace with yourself.
  2. If you think so, you outta find a really, I mean really Expensive lawyer... and take your shot at Ripple. I think mostly likely your expensive lawyer will bleed you dry. And you will still lose.

  4. One huge premise Ripple makes about xrp usage, is the freeing up of nostro/vostro accounts. (If) the ability to free up large amounts of capital is Not incentive enough. Then that means all banks and fincos are quite happy doing things the old fashion way. Using nostro/vostro accounting. Sometime innovation takes time to catch on. Much like the internet back in 1980s, email, later online shopping. There's no doubt in my mind, that your freeing up capital, capital that's tied up, sitting in accounts overseas.. participants will find recapture that capital. When given the opportunity. Right now the stumbling block may have to do with regulatory clearance. For now:- "Saudi/UAE digital currency goes live Q1 2019 (powered by Ripple) - Mohsen Al Zahrani, head of innovation at Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA), says the central bank’s cross-border blockchain project with the United Arab Emirates is on track to go live in the first quarter of 2019."
  5. YES! Your action speaks Volumes! That's why your here. Dah.
  6. I'm certain Ripple knows this next step is vital. In fact, I believe they are actively working on this issue.
  7. 11/21/18 btc-abc aka BCH-ABC $234.65; btc-sv (bsv) $57.76 BCH-SV =losing! SV loses to ABC alphabet.
  8. Fuyaa you joined on Nov 14. Extremely active with doubts about this community. Your Not Craig Wright?? You seem to 'Like' very negative comment concerning Alex. This is something Craig would do, you see. If you are Craig, stop hiding behind some username-Fuyaa (like fool yaa). Don't hide like a COWARD.
  9. My impression was that comment pertains to xRapid, cross border payments. As of now we know the liquidity isn't well established in many corridors. This explains "it may look great on paper, but in reality.." With TransferWise, my sense is, Ripple gave them the software to try out? Also TransferWise's is completely online. No brick and mortars.
  10. They are using nostro/vostro accounting to accomplish this.
  11. Well he's probably wrong about xrp being a security.
  12. Craig is a sociopath / narcissist. That is why. It's got Nothing to do with confidence.
  13. Yes I know what you mean. My take is no matter what Craig will always feel he won. But keep in mind, that's only his take on the outcome. What about everyone else's takeaway? If we are watch or read an open debate.. we all come to our individual conclusions. And guess what - many people will learn the truth about xrp through such a debate. A win for the xrp community. Another point is I know "most don't do this in the open". To get Craig in an open forum debate, he will expose himself for what he truly is -sociopath/narcissist. The more people know this about him the lesser people will care about him. Long run he loses. I understand the recommendation is to not engage them. We'll see how this plays. We are only talking now.
  14. No, not Alex. He is fairly grounded in xrp knowledge. Unshakeable. It will be a good experience for him to debate a sociopath.
  15. I differ in opinion. I believe Alex in a debate against Craig, will win by citing facts. However Craig is a bit of narcissist. With narcissist even when they lose, they think they won. 'A legend in their own mind' kinda stuff. That said, those tuning in on such a debate will know the truth from Alex vs Craig's false statements. So Alex will "tear him to shreds".
  16. Does that include real time cross border payments? The key words 'cross border'. Not surprising. Isn't the Swift SR2018 on Nov 18. Swift GPI, I don't think it handles settlement.
  17. My guess is WU having seen Ripple's xRapid product potential, though unable to integrate into WU's existing infrastructure, probably decided to sell it while they are on top. WU figuring as time goes by their B2B cross border will not be able to compete. Hence sell for top dollars?
  18. Yes. I was thinking the same. We have news a central bank is scheduled to launch cross border payment (powered by Ripple). And everyone's concerned whether xrp will be used or how it will affect price of xrp. A Saudi central bank will be using Ripple powered solution. Guess what? Exposure, real money. Other central banks will be watching this carefully. If deemed successful, other institutions, including banks will get on the bandwagon. This process is call "Adoption". This might work out. I think the Saudi central bank like to be innovative and first for once.
  19. Yup xRapid went live last week. What were you expecting..flow gates of money to pour through? with money flow, slow and steady is probably a good thing. I see nothing wrong with Ripple's progress. Since you're not invested in Ripple/xrp, I suggest you stay that way.
  20. yes this is true. I just realized, to hop on a jet would also cost more. Yes faster.
  21. Maybe in the future we'll see the labeling "Powered by Ripple". Time will tell.
  22. Yes they have their own coin. And that about sums it up. Using their own coin doesn't help increase participants, nor money flow through their exchange. Using a more desirable trading pair like xrp, will make a difference.
  23. We believe Ripple team can adjust the 20xrp required for holding an account. You've already stated 'if the account opening cost was about 1 xrp it would be more realistic on a global human scale". Let's take what you said a step further, since xrp is fractional up to 6 digits, how about 0.1 xrp for account opening? Maybe 0.00001 xrp account opening. My conclusion: I don't think this is an issue for concern, given xrp is fractional up to 6 places. fwiw: standard transaction is 0.00001 XRP (10 drops), hence 1 drop = 0.000001
  24. This shows that "good news" does not guarantee higher prices. Price auction is dynamic. The market will move when it is good and ready to move.
  25. Susie (Esoteric Trading Solutions) uploaded a video about the enormous short position on XRP. I suppose some of this spectacular rise was a result of short covering. Taking losses or protecting profits. Also known as short squeeze. Traders generally have stop loss orders in the market, in case of adverse moves against their position. These are buy-stop market order. Once the price hits that price on the way up, the order becomes a buy market order. The buy get executed at the market, further perpetuating the up move.
