    DQA reacted to CompuGlobalHyperMegaNet in XRP valuation $334.47   
    Technically the valuation is higher. Many assumptions made but can't really make a proper valuation without making certain assumptions, it is certainly better than most of our assumptions here or most other youtubers.
    Importantly she makes the link between Xcurrent adoption and XRP price (via regulation-->investment fund managers entering crypto/XRP based on their professional evaluations).
    Based on bank international settlements only, does not include burn rate and other use cases that Ripple are trying to target (Xpring, Codius) but she acknowledges these amongst other things. Fast forward to 43:20

    DQA got a reaction from sven12345 in Pessimists should sell their XRP and be done with it   
    I don't see the need for these kind of fanboy posts - with all due respect. As this is a Ripple/XRP dedicated forum, it naturally attracts supporters as most of us have a stake in it. I have no problems however to debate people with critical views or who have lost confidence in Ripple. It's in fact a very healthy thing not to be blinded by bias and have critical discussions on our investments. Obviously that is something different from the useful spread of FUD. It just goes too far to me that those who are pessimistic are not welcome.

    I agree with you.  Criticism of XRP should be encouraged.  There was another thread talking about how much XRP (37% including escrow, 80% not including escrow) is held by the top 100 wallets.  That's quite worrying and an undeniable fact - my point isn't to suppress this kind of information (https://ledger.exposed/rich-stats)
    I was talking about people continually obsessed with the price and not fundamentals.  The price right now is neither here nor there and it's obvious some posters' views are completely influenced by the price so whenever they post it's always a negative comment.  I am struggling to see genuine information in these comments. 
    I just gave some advice - they don't need to take it, but they probably will feel better selling their XRP for some short-term gains.

    First mover advantage. Surely, they might be gearing up to develop their own solution but blockchain is complex and Ripple is far ahead of the rest. If they get some major partnerships going, Ripple might very well become the next standard to be used by the likes of MasterCard... And who knows, some of these households names might very well disappear with the likes of Revolut emerging (thinking out of the box).

    DQA reacted to bookworm in Bearableguy123 Thread   
    If I had to do it all over again, I would rather take my calculated chances rather than working for 30-40 odd years give or take numerous years in both undergrad and grad studies to fuel/secure my career working for very big institutions.
    While in high school, I nearly dropped out since I cannot see myself following the system of schooling, family raising and indebtedness (student loan, mortgage, furniture/car loans) for the interest of government and banks.  While this would be the safest cookie cutter path, no one can make a difference by following this path ... if you want more to life, be prepared to choose the road less travelled.  With some luck and intuition, this will be rewarding.
    I was a professional with $10k saved after 10 years of full time employment.  If I had stuck to the system, I would likely have had my 1500sf home paid for after decades of work.  But this is hardly the life one prefers after years educated at top universities.
    Luckily, I took my calculated risks that has returned magnitudes more.  Looking back, take the road less travelled and more difficult.  Accept the challenge amid the ridicule.  Know when to cave in based on respect from and for family/loved ones.  Never drop out of school unless you can build your own empire and secure your own employment.  Know what you want and measure your personal, family, career and financial targets over time.  But know when to cash up and not be too greedy.  Enjoy life and make the most of it while you’re young with time on your side even with same mistakes made along the way.
    For me as a middle/old aged man in semi-retirement married for well over 30 years with two adult daugthers, I can only share my wisdom to help out others (millenials) based on my lessons learned along the way.  Sure, there’s no need to heed my advice ... and no @Qasim_786, I am not seeking reassurance from my XRP hobby.

    DQA reacted to djdhrubs in Knowing when to sell   
    I've written briefly about this on other threads but consider this to be the single most difficult decision to make, assuming we actually go significantly up.
    There are so many different approaches to this, depending on one's personal circumstances. I wanted to get your collective opinions on how you are gonna decide when to sell, and how much of your stack to sell.
    I'm not so secretly hoping that someone cleverer than me can devise a formula that gives you a sell signal, or at least share your strategy if you have one. The myriad complications involved include, in no particular order:
    1. How much you are investing, and your DCA.
    2. Your expectations of the price XRP can reach.
    3. Do you need access to some or all of the money invested by a certain date?
    4. Are you aiming for an absolute target figure of profit, or to afford a specific purchase (car, house, paying off mortgage, etc)?
    5. Tax implications
    I remember @XRPto50dollars using some kind of calculation based on an individual's debt - can you remind me what you said?
    During the December/ January bull run, I was totally clueless about when to sell and ended up panic selling, albeit at a profit. I'm currently about 10% in the red having invested a lot more than I did initially.
    Next time, I still don't have a concrete plan as yet but do have some newly learnt TA tools up my sleeve which will guide me in when to sell at least portions of my overall stack. Specifically, I'm going to use bearish divergence on RSI and crossing over of moving averages to help give me sell signals. I'm not talented enough to count Elliott waves but that's another possible TA tool one could use.
    Here's a couple of great tutorials for the above TA signals:-
     
    Any thoughts/ strategies would be much appreciated.
