    Well, that depends on your entry point.  If you got in early, then pulling the initial investment out may be a relatively small percentage

    of what you own now.  Playing with house money has the benefit of peace of mind.

    I was lucky to get in at an average of $0.2 and although I got in cheap I am in college and basically live a more conservative lifestyle now because I would rather struggle a little more now if it means large success later

    It could fail and it could also surpass our own wild expectations.  If you are only putting in what you can risk to lose then you are making an investment based on the knowledge and information you have acquired.  This could very well turn out to be a waste of money, but so are lottery tickets, and I bet everyone you know has pumped thousands into them during their lifetime.  Ignore them and be humble and gracious with your success if it comes.

    Many people tell me to take out my initial investment, and even though I see how that can be smart...I am weighing the risk and rewards...and the rewards FAR outweigh the risk of my initial investment :biggrin:

    Ignore. Even if you could make compelling arguments, why bother? People like that don't want to be convinced, they want to ***** and moan to make everyone as miserable as they are.

    Don't let random people influence your state of mind. 

    I just want people to see XRP and Ripple for what they are worth. I don't care what they think of me and how I handle my money and investments. But I do care about the public view on Ripple's team and XRP...probably is best to ignore at times tho. Especially when people are just trying to argue I guess.

    I started buy FB at about $18/share and everyone said the same thing. But at the time I thought wow this company has a billion active users. All they need to do is flip basically any switch at all and start making a huge profit. 

    When I look at XRP it's basically the same thing. Add up the investors (SBI, Google, Microsoft) and the partners (Bill Gates, American Express, Santander, Cuallix, The Central Banks, MGI, WU, etc etc etc). Look at the 61 banks trialing xCurrent right now. and to me, it's the same thing. It's like wow, all this thing needs is to flip a switch, and boom. $$

    I mean it's easy to poo poo block chain and to argue that the entire worlds financial system isn't going to migrate over to the software of some San Francisco start up. But the reality is in the financial backing this company has, the partners that are already committed, and the customers that are already using the technology.

    There are lots of digital assets on the market place with neat ideas that aren't being used by anyone at all. That isn't the case with XRP.

    Thank you..I knew I could count on you haha.

    FINALLY the first paragraph is the most honest thing i've read about XRP not posted by a proponent of ripple. " Its blockchain-based services try to make money transfers cheaper, offer cross-market liquidity, and transition banks and other service providers to the XRP asset. " Thats great. Once we can get people to understand the value of XRP in the network then we will start to see success

    Yeah we need that understanding and promotion of XRP's use case to succeed

    so the theory is that possibly as low as 8 billion xrp are actually in circulation with the rest being either locked down in escrow, or in contracts with early insiders. 


    Facebook has bought more than 50 companies. one of Facebook's early buys was Whatsapp which is now valued at $19,000,000,000. 

    I think about this and think about how much money actually exists still to be poured into crypto. these huge funds and companies could easily plop down hundreds of millions or even billions into a digital asset which only has 8 billion tokens in circulation.


    When you look at it like this big prices don't seem so unrealistic

    Been away from the charts and it is sad to see another dip. I thought things were going to slowly progress after the chinese new year. Sick of looking at the price atm. I know it's going to rise eventually and it's impossible to tell when. It frustrates me a bit that some dumba$$ coin goes up like 1000% while we are standing still or falling. 

    What is your speculation on the xrp price at the end of March? Mine is 2.2 USD.

    Most all of asian traders are out of the market right now...after CNY is when I am hopeful for price rise

    When Ripple XRP surges and it will, man it is really going to take off. I'd guess from 1.00 to 5.00 by mid April. There's just to many partnerships and to much good PR from all news outlets for us not to surge. There's no other currency out of over 1000 that even comes close to ripple. We are in for a nice ride real soon.

    You are right my friend.. Ripple has reached some extremely impressive goals. I do not see how it won't do well either.
