    Coinbase 12 days

    It would be nice but I'm not holding my breath. I don't trust Coinbase.
  2. https://ethereumworldnews.com/american-express-ripple-process-transactions-matter-seconds/ "Blockchain is absolutely an option we’re looking at. Just to give you a sense, we have invested in a fintech lab based on blockchain technology, just to understand how to leverage this better…. We did a pilot. We did a test, partnering with Santander locally, and with Ripple to just do cross-border transactions. Cross-border transactions continue to be complex and slow. And in a matter of seconds, through this test, our clients were able to transfer funds in a very transparent and seamless way, from one part of the world to the other one.” “There is more to come. There’s still a lot of things that need to get addressed with blockchain as a technology. But it’s very promising… The future is definitely digital. Digital is the way payments will continue to be across both the consumer part of the business the commercial part of the business”.
  3. https://cryptodaily.co.uk/2018/12/ripple-bears-running-scared-as-number-of-shorts-drops-double-digits Interesting article "Ripple (XRP) shorts started to tumble soon as they reached the previous all time high. In fact, the 4H chart for XRPUSDShorts shows that the bears are so scared that the number of shorts had to drop double digits despite Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple (XRP) both being trading in the red today. The situation that we see now is that Ripple (XRP) bears not only have to worry about a rising Bitcoin (BTC) but they also have to worry about an independent Ripple (XRP) that could perform a miracle during a market meltdown. So, shorting Ripple (XRP) is beginning to become less and less attractive for the bears. While shorts on coins like Ethereum Classic (ETC) are up significantly for today, Ripple (XRP) shorts are totally getting crushed even as the fate of Bitcoin (BTC) shorts remain uncertain. The past few weeks have convinced the bears that shorting Ripple (XRP) is not as easy as it used to be. There was once a time when the bears could pull the price down even during most awaited yearly events for Ripple (XRP). During last year’s Ripple Swell Conference, the price of XRP kept on declining before, during and after Swell. Whenever Bitcoin (BTC) would drop, Ripple (XRP) would drop a lot more aggressively. So, the bears began to short it aggressively on exchanges like Bitmex and Bitfinex and it used to work until recently. However, ever since Ripple (XRP) overtook Ethereum (ETH) as the second largest coin by market cap, this situation has changed completely. Not only is shorting Ripple (XRP) less profitable now, it has become a lot riskier from a risk/reward standpoint."
  4. Opinion: The European Central Bank [ECB] recently announced that they would be launching a system for faster payments in the Eurozone. This system is known as Target Instant Payments System, and aims to offer a settlement of instant payments in Euro, with users being able to access it any time of day and any day of the year. At first glance, this might be the beginning of the end for the actual use-case of crypto-assets. However, one digital asset may as well benefit more from this move than many may think. This article was confusing. It starts out saying that the ECB is launching a system that will put an end to all crypto assets. Then it goes on to say that Ripple will benefit.... ?
  5. I'm guessing that Binance makes a pile of money using BTC pairings ect. Why would you want to have direct xrp Fiat pairs when people that want XRP have to first buy another coin then transfer it into XRP thus generating fees for Binance..
  6. So they won't add it because it is faster and cheaper and they are concerned of the impact it could have on BTC? Very interesting and very telling. Also how many Bitcoins do some if these decision makers hold... Same with Coinbase not adding XRP Imo.
  7. https://ambcrypto.com/xrp-ledger-developer-and-coil-cto-reveals-why-he-left-ripple/ “I think they’re [Ripple] very focused on use cases around the digital asset XRP as well as enterprise use cases. So making payments more efficient for banks, payment service providers, their customers, corporates and so on.” And so if you think about Ledger, we talked earlier what are the things that Inter Ledger is best at. If you think of it as a thing that enables like a new class of use cases – kind of how the Internet enabled a new class of communication use cases – it’s unlikely that large corporations are going to necessarily be the very first to adopt that.

    There Is Chance For Ripple (XRP) On Coinbase

    Coinbase is in the business of market manipulation imo. There is no reason that they haven't listened XRP by no as many other exchanges have. I believe that they want to suppress XRP because they hold large amount of BTC and ETH..
  11. https://dailyhodl.com/2018/09/18/you-can-now-accept-xrp-on-youtube-and-twitch/ "A new platform created by Ripple’s former CTO is now integrated with YouTube and Twitch, allowing content creators to accept XRP. Coil, a company that aims to give internet content creators new ways to monetize their work, is now in beta. So far, the company has integratedwith YouTube and Twitch, allowing viewers to donate XRP to their favorite channels. Users can also utilize the platform to donate to Wikipedia and the Internet Archive." I think that Coil could be huge..
  12. Alot of the volume seems to be otc and not through the exchanges. In turn the price of XRP doesn't move..
  13. This is a small player and the fact that they are setting up their fund in this matter is not surprising. When we have more regulatory clarity they're will be lots of funds to choose from that employ a wide range of Strategies.
