  1. Clearly you didn’t read the post previous to yours. If the story has reached The End why are you still here? Waiting for a post credits scene? This isn’t a Marvel movie if that’s why you’re here.
  2. https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/34544/ripple-brings-blockchain-tech-to-finastra-banking-customers Ripple has struck a deal to offer its blockchain technology for cross-border payments to Finastra's banking customers. Under the agreement, Finastra's hundreds of customers will have access to RippleNet, Ripple’s global blockchain payments network, to provide what the firm claims are faster, cheaper and more reliable payments. Customers will be hosted on Ripple’s cloud solution which promises to improve speed of integration with other network partners and allow for faster upgrades. They will also have the option to use On Demand Liquidity, which leverages the digital asset XRP for cross border payments. Meanwhile, Ripple’s more than 200 customers will get access to Finastra’s network of banks, allowing mutual customers to easily access and partner with each other, increasing overall volume on the network. Finastra's banking customers currently process millions of transactions each month. Marcus Treacher, SVP, customer success, Ripple, says: "This partnership will enable Ripple to expand the reach and solutions for our partners, and the footprint of RippleNet while allowing customers to transact directly with each other." Riteesh Singh, SVP, FMS, Finastra, adds: "Collaborating with a company like Ripple that harnesses innovative blockchain technology to provide fast and reliable cross-border payments is particularly beneficial for our customers in geographies where cost of correspondent banking is high."
  3. Not sure why this hasn’t been posted... https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-welcomes-yoshitaka-kitao-to-its-board-of-directors/ “The Representative Director, President and CEO of SBI Holdings, Inc. Yoshitaka Kitao will be joining Ripple’s Board of Directors. Having served as the head of dozens of companies throughout his career, Mr. Kitao brings to the board extensive leadership experience and knowledge of global financial markets.”
  4. Seems like he may have been someone in the crypto space once. These folks will loose their relevance as the space matures.
  5. Great stuff here. There’s obviously plenty of XRP use that we have no idea about.
  6. Noobs and the experienced have to watch out for premature speculation. It can be a real problem for investors, and can get one into a sticky situation.
  7. Alternatively Ripple spend 20B (keep 40B) XRP and cover the Q promises 100 Q to one XRP and a Q could be the term for a 100th of an XRP
  8. Musings... - Initiative Q has gained quite a bit of traction and is being discussed across the internet.... I think (even though they don’t have a working system yet) their distribution method has tackled an issue most crypto’s have had (distribution)... - so what if a company like Ripple bought out/partnered with Initiative Q (InQ); and, - backed InQ’s 2 Trillion coins with XRP (50 Qs to one XRP, leaving Ripple with 20b XRP)? - Qs would simply convert to xrp; - XRP would have more holders than any other crypto... with none able to do any damage (100,000 Qs are equal to 2000xrp in the above scenario).
  9. I’m told 190,000,000 therefore 60b (xrp held by Ripple) / 190m = 315xrp per share (of course depending how you look at it, those coins aren’t in circulation)
  10. If you’ve been holding Xrp for nearly two years it’s worth at least x35 what you paid for it...
  11. ....but seriously... I bought in under 1cent, and believe the price is cheap still but I find it difficult to buy more now because that would lift my Average Buy Price.
  12. @lucid99 just wondering if you’ve dumped XLM and other coins for XRP given it is proving the most stable in this downswing, also are you paying tax if you chose to dump those coins for XRP?
  13. There’s some nice pairs on this site... https://dcex.com/ I started buying XRP in March/April 2017, then you could only buy it through BTC...lots of progress since then, well done @miguel
