  1. Breaking: Multiple sources are speculating that Brad Garlinghouse is now the President of the United States of America.
  2. "You get an XRP and you get an XRP and you get an XRP" -Oprah
  3. Does Brad's realism of the market and his views on BTC make anyone else have a lot more confidence in him in comparison to other CEO's? I'm a huge fan of his speaking abilities and his transparency he's displaying as he speaks.
  4. It should be a crime for looking so goddamn good
  5. Magic number is when I can pay off my student loans.... So probably this time 2050 lol!!
  6. I'm almost positive all CVS's go through MG for sending money through CVS's. Not sure if it has changed over the past few years but I know about three years ago it was MG. Not sure why it'd change. That being said, CVS is somewhat of a household name in the United States so it could maybe find a way out that way.
  7. I used coinbase for a good amount of trades. ETH being sent to binance took around 10 minutes maximum for me at first. Than before they announced the slower send times the past week I put in more ETH to send to Binance and it took 20 hours. Given ETH spiked high that night I didn't care but if it went the other way that would've been bad news bears. I like coinbase but they need to input an option of a more instant cancellation if the send is taking 20+ hours.

    Hey Everyone!

    So I've been investing into the Crypto market for around a little under 30 days now. I have been in banking for 7 years and around these topics of conversation for some time now. I figured out about Ripple because one day my hockey teammate said that he made 2000 dollars off of Ethereum. That being said I did my research and did not find anything about the products offered of other cryptos being a long-term success without modification. Than I started searching product efficiency and quickly came across Ripple. Did some cost saving calculations and just broke down Ripple in my mind down to the most simple level of plausible use possible and saw that it could be used so well in the banking world (Given some dominos need to fall). I consider myself extremely lucky to get in during the spikes however, Ripple to me was an educated gamble at first that turned into an educated commitment. I bought in sporadically, first around 500 shares at 60 cents than another 4-500 at 80 cents. I have shorted a few stocks and have been trading between XRP, XLM, TRX, POE, and occasionally will throw my money into ETH this past week for quicker gains. **Edited Share amount out I started doing this day 1 to practice my stock trading risk free. New traders it might help you to try this. What I have done is first and foremost I write down just about everything on paper. Along with that, I write down manually all of my buys/sells that I execute fully and I also write down trades I decide not to make but was on the fence about it. Being a new trader make sure every Buy/Sell has a logical researched reason behind the action. Sticking by this and keeping track of my unexecuted decisions has helped build my confidence in trading as well as made me realize some key principles from a personal standpoint I need to have while trading in order not to make emotional decisions.
  9. Unbelievable post, great analytics and even better read!
  10. Your not the only one! I am new to investing as well. Ironically, my first ever investment was Ripple at around 60 cents for a little over 1k shares. One piece of advice a person told me if you are trading with a lower amount of funds which in my case I started with 1000 was, "What is that 1000 dollars in the grand scheme of your life itself?" It's nothing when compared to a lifetime. So don't get too stressed, you could lose it all but if you weren't prepared from the start to lose it all than you have already made a mistake! At the end of the day, yes my underwear has been changed quite a few times. However, I do still have Ripple to pay for more Hanes once we hit the moon!
  11. I just looked at that as a possible reasoning but I am more so invested because of the efficiency of the product and cost effectiveness. I just figured this is a way it could translate down the work ladder but I was not sure how far it was intended to go.
  12. So, I have been watching this forum like a hawk for the past month or so now. In fact, Ripple was my first ever investment in cryptocurrency. I invested at .70. The reason being is because I had a friend make a decent amount of profits off of crypto. That being said I started to search the internet and everyday seem to learn more and more things about not only Ripple but other coins as well. I think I understand the fact that Ripples are the component to a software that is being implemented in banks. I myself was a teller/head teller for 7 years and the software portion is what caught my eye. Now, I'm not sure if I am confused but does the use of Ripple's network trickle down to the teller line in regards to everyday operation? More specifically, in a teller/customer situation when a customer comes to a teller window and asks for foreign currency exchange, can/is Ripple used to make this an instant service that can be provided? The reason this comes to my mind is because I specifically remember when I was in banking, foreign exchange was sometimes frustrating. In all cases my bank would end up having to order money and have it shipped in. This coming at a much higher cost per transaction and if a customer needed it by a certain date they could be charged additionally. I understand that large banks have foreign currency at the ready in most cases but my thought is that if Ripple trickles down to the frontline daily operations than I see it being a even bigger success. If customers wanted cash they could walk into a bank during or prior to a trip and exchange currency and have ripple bridge it into the foreign currency desired and have it go onto something in the form of a visa gift card now? I guess I just saw this very specific scenario highly practical on a basic level but was somewhat confused. But my other thought was that each of these transactions would burn off more ripple thus driving the price of ripple up that much higher. Like I said, new to cryptocurrency but am learning something new everyday.
