    We will go down again, and no - now I am not hoping for it anymore. Scooped up enough, but something tells me this correction is not complete yet.

    DQA reacted to lucky in Rough future for XRP?   
    So, let's see... The SEC is going to shoot the cryptocurrency minted in the USA in the kneecaps, and declares Bitcoin (minted in China!) the winner of the cryptocurrency race. And it will do so when there are plenty of very good arguments to *not* label XRP as a security, and thereby *not* handing victory on a golden plate to the Chinese mining cartel.
    I'm sorry, but I'm not buying into that silly theory. It's being pushed forward by people that have invested a lot in Bitcoin, and by people that just can't stand other people's success, because it reminds them too much of being a failure themselves.

    DQA reacted to trubbleinmind in Final Shakeout? Wyckoff Analysis   
    BTC has very weakly broken through resistance that has been in play since the ATH, (diagonal line)which is great to see. we'll see if it can continue to rise a bit. getting up over 6500 would be good, and hopefully 6500 would then provide support for the mark up phase. The horizontal line in the image is the low since the ATH, we wanted to break under that in order for the spring to form. 

    Historical reference people are comparing this to is EBAY 2008/2009:

    DQA reacted to Zedy44 in XRP Price: Do you think we've reached the bottom or will it hold at $0.40 USD?   
    I really think BTC is going to hit $4500ish before it really bottoms out.  Maybe even it goes lower to $3kish like last September and then bounces up to $4500ish, but that area is where I expect the whole market to reset.

    DQA reacted to 2ndtimearound in This DOES feel like the internet circa 1996 to 1998   
    Anecdote #1
    Back in 1996, I was a sales guy for an advertising firm.  We would fill up advertising space for publications.  We would find clients via telesales, mailshots (as in, letters), and "faxshots" (via mail-merging a bunch of phone numbers, MS Word, and a fax machine). I was online at home at the time via dial-up.  I mentioned the internet to my colleagues and my boss as a means to get the message out there - connect with the people online.  Without exception they all laughed at me.  They laughed because the internet had a distinct perception at that time of being something nerds used to talk to each other with.  The internet was - to use the UK vernacular - sad. It definitely wasn't considered a marketing tool, or really for businesses.  My suggestion was dismissed, and I think I lost a bit of kudos for even suggesting the internet.  Two short years later and it was a very different story.  Five years later and most companies were scrambling to get a website and some kind of online presence.  Of course, today if a company said "we don't need a website", they would be the ones being laughed at.
    Anecdote #2
    Let's go back to the late 90s again - 1998 from my memory.  At the time, I was  "socialising" on specialist news groups, downloading mp3s.  Yet again, mentioning these activities to friends drew dismissive looks.  "Sad, mate" - "you need to get out more".  Funny thing is, they were right in a way.  I needed to get out more.  However, look at today.  I can go to a restaurant and see a whole table of people staring at computers (their phones) , socialising on "newsgroups" (well, Facebook).  They're "sadder" than my nerdy 1998-self.  They're bringing their computers with them wherever they go! it only took 20 years for entire populations to turn into what 1998 people would deem "sad nerds".
    My point
    99% of people are absolute sheep.  If everyone's doing it, they'll do it too.  It's the same for business.  These people will not touch anything new, but as soon as it gets its "seal of approval" by the crowd, they're onto it.  Crypto is in that early stage right now.  In fact, it suffers a bit more than the internet in that regulations have yet to properly set the asset class up for full-on speculation, including institutional investors.  I've been here quite a few times before with tech.  The blockchain itself isn't going away.  That tech will allow companies to establish provenance of tangible items,  transfer value, verify identity, allow trustless communication between two or more machines with full transparency (amongst dozens of other use-cases).  Businesses spend an inordinate amount of time and energy looking to save themselves time and money in the longer run.  If a company can cut 2% of its savings, it will.  If it can save a few minutes a day per activity (when that activity is happening many times a day), it will organize itself to enable those savings to happen.  The free market is both brutal and beautiful.  It's brutal in that you can be out of your job if it saves your boss a few thousands dollars a year, and beautiful in that you really do see how inventive businesses can be in finding savings of time and money.  When Ripple can give 40% to 70% savings to banks - when most are already struggling - that gets their interest.  The future is looking good for XRP holders in my opinion, even if the price right now is low.  Buy if you can afford to buy, or just hold.  Again, just my opinion, but it's better to sell to the masses than it is to sell to an accumulating whale (they're out there now, buying).

    Bring it on. At .05 cents, the XRPChat bastion won't surrender, instead, we will buy shitloads more and turn into mini and mega whales. 
    Sadly, we won't ever see that again (that's my belief). In the 20s range people will go berserk to add tons of XRP.

    DQA got a reaction from jcdenton in Interesting read; Federal Reserve looking at XRP   
    “There is a reason why the United States has a structural trade deficit. That’s because the world wants to hold the dollar as a reserve currency,” said Minerd while speaking on a panel at the Milken Institute 2018 Global Conference in Los Angeles on April 30. “If we insist that we have no trade imbalance, what we’re saying is that we no longer want to be the reserve currency.”

    DQA reacted to Liagala in David Schwartz and why XRP is no security for him   
    Personal opinion - I think that Ripple people have been in talks with the SEC for a long time about this, and the SEC told them, "Right now, you'd fail the test.  If you do X, Y, and Z that would change."
     
    X - "Distance your company from the currency" (New Logo)
    Y - "Decentralize the nodes further" (Ripple already had this in process, more nodes coming on all the time)
    Z - "Show that other companies besides yourself have influence over XRP, and contribute to its position in the market." (Coil, Xpring)
     
    Ripple is putting out effort on all fronts to meet the SEC's requirements.  One box is already checked off, one was being worked on anyway, and the third has begun.  It just needs a little more time to develop.  Conveniently, the SEC has not put out a ruling on XRP yet.  I think that's professional courtesy - Ripple did the right thing and came to them to discuss the issue, so they're giving them a little time to implement the changes needed.

    DQA got a reaction from ripplewaytogo in Say today is 30th June 2023 and the price of ripple is only at $1. What would you do?   
    This. If the price hasn’t gone over $1 by the end of the year,  I will become very skeptical (as BG mentioned he expects numerous banks to use xRapid) I will re-evaluate my decision by the end of the year and probably sell end of next year if we are at or below $1.  
    Not that it matters, cause I highly doubt we will sit around these lows for the rest of the year.

    "Of the roughly 17 mln Bitcoin available, the data shows that, as of April 2018, around 1,600 Bitcoin wallets hold at least 1,000 bitcoins each, equalling almost 5 mln BTC and accounting for almost a third of all Bitcoin in circulation.

    The markets will go up as soon as the whales decide its time for that. This rather small market is heavily manipulated and therefore we are held completely hostage to those whales. Regulation will help deal with this, but I am afraid there won't be natural market movements for a little while longer to come.

    We’ve seen bear markets for up to two years in the past. So we need to be prepared. I think the crypto market is in a much more advanced state thane ever before so I don’t think we will need to wait that long again.

    Sure it is. Just look how little time it took to get to the ATH of +$3. As soon as the next bull run takes off and Coinbase announces to list XRP or Ripple announces a big xRapid partnership, we can easily get to $10. Will it happen? Like you said, no one knows. Perhaps we will stay the entire year in a bear market. I don't think so, but I also didn't think we would be in a bear market for almost 6 months already this year.
