  1. @Max Entropy Your post was so awesome/interesting it reminded me of this.
  2. So did they really successfully predict 2016, or did they just update it throughout the year? "Research Firm Tells Us 2017 Top 5 Cryptocurrencies Forecast; After Successfully Predicting 2016."
  3. Agree, maybe it's just a ux thing and the difference is you really push xrp donations for great content while xrpchat doesn't provide. So, when you hand out these xrp do it in the same manner I as a user would do it.
  4. Thanks for sharing. Been buying expanse for a couple months now. I think there is a ton of potential.
  5. Always nice seeing the community get involved, so no complaints from me. I just wonder why we need another hangout. I think building something that functions with xrp would be cool rather than more speculative information. I always wanted to make a domain name marketplace site with near free escrow by programming xrp as the zero counterparty risk asset used in an automated contract.
  6. They had ridiculous funding rounds and have stated they don't need to rely on xrp to pay for business expenses so the only explanation I can come up with is they're using it to stabilize the price. It would be nice if they eliminated their majority by destroying through transaction fees or at least had a schedule for releasing coins. Until then, it feels like the US government printing money out of thin air, whenever they please, to keep the price at its best value for utility (stable). At least the supply is limited but until that supply is distributed it will take adoption and utilization before we see a big rise in value. Personal opinion (but my goals may be different than ripple), Ripple should destroy a large chunk of their majority share and come up with a scheduled distribution plan. Until then I will sit here, long position, in hopes Ripple becomes the next swift so actual usage will drive demand and price.
  7. I have always been long on btc and xrp. Expanse (EXP) has drawn my interest lately for these reasons: Source: "Expanse was created with a community DAO fund to pay for development and expenses of the project for many years. The amount of 10 million was chosen to provide a long-term solution." "I propose we switch from a reserve system to a monthly revenue stream using a percentage of the dPoS Validators and remove the 10 million EXP fund entirely." "Psychologically, people price Expanse and include the 10 million in their calculations, they even calculate the EXP that won't be used for many years. I also believe this would be very likely to increase the price as there would be vastly less overall EXP existing." "but also greatly reducing the total supply to less than 5 million total EXP." Current: Available Supply=4,833,889 EXP Total Supply=15,002,939 Market Cap=$924,713 Current Price per= .19 cents Seems like there is huge potential in big gains with current limited supply and minimal market cap and the chance for the elimination of the Expanse team owning majority share as well as the total supply being reduced by 2/3. I am not overly invested in EXP (have a very small amount) or do I know a ton about it other than what I have recently read and wonder what others opinions are on EXP as an investment. Should I put real money into it? Could we see a 10x - 50x increase at some point in the future? I had posted here (source) Also, if you remember, they were one of the first, if not the first, to integrate ILP.
  8. This is exactly how the crypto community feels imo.
  9. Premine.... People believe Ripple is stabilizing the price with distribution. There needs to be some kind of distribution plan that everyone knows and understands. Ripple also controls majority share. Would be nice if this could be corrected by destroying some of Ripple's current supply through transaction fees. I think if Ripple destroyed half of their supply through transaction fees the price/interest would drive the price up enough to make up for it (and majority share would be gone). This would also give us early adopters some love, since most bought in years ago at higher prices only to see newbies out buying us at these rates.
  10. Just get 2 factor. If you get a new phone download the app, log into gatehub with your old phone and turn 2 factor off. Then two seconds later turn it back on, scan the qr code with your new phone and you are in business.
  11. While researching George Frost I found a connection to Drupal and XRP. Before his involvement with Bitstamp and Gatehub, George Frost was Counsel and Director at CivicActions Inc. I know for a fact CivicActions is very much involved in Drupal and I believe they even do a large amount of work for Dries himself (creator of Drupal). My current company uses Drupal and CivicActions poached about 10 devs from us (salaries in California, even while working remote, are much better than what a company in Florida can offer a developer) a few years ago. Maybe Frost can connect CivicActions with Ripple in the future.
  12. Ripple controls Jed's xrp now so not sure how much he actually has left anymore.
  13. LMAO - Yea... nice choice of words.
  14. What was the final outcome? When I voted Ripple was up to 16% (above "All of them").
