    To me, this is exactly why things like Bakkt focusing on BTC make no sense to me. I've been saying for a while that I can't see American, or Western companies in general, wanting to transfer chunks of the financial system onto a platform that is slow, prone to be expensive in high use times, subject to bottlenecks, centralised in China, and basically under the majority influence of profit seeking anonymous people.
    Brad (IIRC, or maybe it was Cory) was saying not that long ago about their chats with the White House, about these reasons to prefer Ripple/XRP tech over PoW coins and they indicated that the administration seems to 'get' that. I've been saying that building on bitcoin presents at minimum, a commercially dangerous idea (eg. there's no one to ring if something goes wrong), and at worst, national security concerns. Do you have any other comments about this issue? I'd love to hear your thoughts in more detail.
    Thanks.

    Hey Bob,
    I have a few questions for you:
    Every week for several months now, Ripple sends out 10's of millions of XRP. They follow a predictable pattern. Typically 5-50M go out, the receiving wallet then sends out XRP to 2-10 wallets in amounts that are usually in the hundred thousand range (with round numbers), those receiving wallets tend to then send transactions that appear to be payments, not in round numbers. Other wallets with a similar profile seem to be on the receiving end of the payments rolling things back up. Any idea what's going on here?
    xPOOL - What can you tell us about it? Ripple registered the trademark years ago. Temenos did a PR about shared liquidity pooling for it's T24 customers that may be related. The theory is Ripple manages global liquidity in partnership with the exchanges to provide banks with price stability. (There's also a Shane Ellis theory that suggests giant buy/sell walls with cash and XRP will do the same on live order books down the road. The walls will move up and down to manage liquidity.)
    I've been told xPOOL was going to be a product but then became more of a Ripplenet feature. This may tie in with the private ledger/walled garden idea and the accounts above.  When Bitrex upgraded it's platform strangely 500m of it's ~1B was transferred to Upbit in 50 moves of 49,999,999 XRP. I think an AI could possibly be managing the liquidity pools for Ripple and the 9's are to indicate AI moves. Shortly after this stopped, the funds were moved back in 90M XRP transactions with round numbers suggesting human intervention. Do you know anything on this subject?
    There are wallets that do nothing but move funds between exchanges in this manner, sometimes through an intermediary wallet with an 5-15m delay. Destination ID's on all of these suspected xPOOL moves are 0's typically (sometimes 1-10), so it's not customers moving between exchanges.
    I guess the big question here - when XRP is used for 8 digit transactions, what is Ripple's strategy to avoid slippage eating up the savings between Mark and Mak?
    A couple of interesting ones - The SecurityBounty wallet that had 50K in it for a week and then it was pulled out. Happened a couple years ago, was this some kind of hacking challenge you put together? I also see occasional transactions with encrypted Travel Rule details added. Any idea why this is used vs. pre-transaction negotiation?
    Bob - Your posts are tremendously appreciated, and have filled in a lot of gaps for me. Too often I see a few Ripple employees respond on twitter when they can score points at someone's expense vs. educate the community as you have. This will go a long way to dispel FUD and create a stronger community.

    Hi Bob!
    Welcome and great to have you on board!
    I have two questions:
    1.) Are you bearableguy123?
    2.) Do you like gifs?

    Let’s get this out of the way. Internally at ripple, how high do people think the price of xrp can get? And... what are your expectations with regards to the price of xrp in the next 5 years?

    I gain nothing by trolling. There are others who know what I know, and I know what they know, and we are telling you the same thing. Ripple's trajectory is obvious to anyone who is looking. All we're saying is that what is happening behind the scenes is in alignment with what can be seen in publicly available information.
    Hodl. Or trade. But don't abandon XRP and don't ever let the fudsters get in your head. They are wrong.
    Ps. Please also note that I'm not giving price predictions nor am I pointing at dates. Ripple have been at this for years but what they are doing is nothing short of re-plumbing the way money travels globally and it requires engaging with multiple legacy systems, dozens of regulatory regimes, powerful hostile incumbents. That's a massive undertaking and it necessarily comes with obstacles and delays and setbacks.

    I have this conversation I want to post just to annoy the holy **** out of the uptight. But I don't know if I can do it and protect my source so I'll just say instead.

    It's funny. This is exactly what I was talking about on a FB group a while back, explaining my perspective that when it comes down to it, there is no way that American commerce and money flow is going to be allowed to be at the mercy of anonymous Chinese miners. Ripple is the goose laying the golden egg and US regulators have every incentive to get this right. If they f*** it up, the consequences will be at a national security level.

    There is a difference between actionable information/insights and wishful thinking. Of course everyone who has money invested likes to think we are "always right around the corner" from something big. If someone has information that actually supports something big happening soon (aside from some speculative TA), then I'd love to hear it.

    I usually only post in threads, and don't create my own (other than recently in the Giveaway's section).
    But I feel the need to post this thread.  Granted "Speculation" is implied, as per the title of this place.
    But YO! S**t is SERIOUSLY about to happen!  I've dropped so many clues here and there.  I've a s**t-ton of money invested in this crap.  It's going to happen, FOR REAL.

    Howaboutthemripples reacted to OzAlphaWolf in One & only reason for XRP to succeed?!   
    Assume there is one or more competitors. What is the likely outcome? That Ripple will capture a percentage of the market rather than the whole market. That's not a bad thing.
    But it's also not the whole story. Look at all the other use cases for XRP and how it's being leveraged now and in the future. B2B cross borders payments is only one of them.
