  1. All my XRP is on my Ledger Nano or Toast Wallet.

    What an Incredible Year

    I did find this screen grab from exactly 12 months ago:

    I am fully aware of that!!! That said, it did hit over $100k daily volume previously. The current low volume is partly down to the fact that there was a coin burn (to remove hang over from the old original BTCI which suffered an exit scam). So quite a few of the exchanges will be back online soon with the new wallet. But yes, trading even at $100k is slow andi hate the waste of converting to BTC first.

    That’s exacty my thought. I’ve made some great gains on small Alt coins, but when the sea is rough and the Bitcoin Titanic is sinking, it makes sense to stay on te XRP Super Yatch.

    $XBI is a proof of Stake Coin, and you get rewards for either opening the Staking function in the wallet or for running Masternodes. Right now I’m earning about 200 XBI per day. Whilst I probably should have switched it when it got close to 60 Cents and I could have bought 60K XRP, I was a bit torn as the rewards are good. I might start selling the rewards from now, which would bag me about 150 XRP per day.

    Agree. I’ve now got 25,000 XRP. That said, I am holding 60,000 XBI which originally cost me $300 and are now worth $15k, so I should be able trade some into XRP at some point. Guess the aim has to be 100k XRP.

    Is crypto dead?

    Agreed. Thanks to playing around with Crypto, validator nodes and some GPU work which morphed into AI, I've elevated my decent £140k OTE salary to something closer to £300k. (I'm in sales, but super techy for sales). Thank you XRP and Ripple! Not just improving finance, but improving individuals finances by improving their skills.
  9. I tend to agree that BTC will die off. 1) Highly centralised in a Chinese mining cartel 2) Massive transactional backlog 3) Clearly got very overhyped 4) Current mix of competition and difficulty make mining a loss making activity. In fact most miners lose at $4k all will shut off BTC at $3k, and..... 5) Most miners can reprofile their ASICs to mine more profitable coins instead of BTC 6) Plenty of premined and PoS coins to choose instead of PoW ones. Obviously XRP as a pre-mine, but also ones that communities can run easily on masternodes like XBI that do everything BTC does, but are are around 1/12,000 the of the price.

    XRP Surpasses ETH on CMC

    Just like .com Lots of failures, 1 Amazon, 1 Google, 1 Facebook

    XRP Surpasses ETH on CMC

    That said, I expect that this is how XRP will overtake ETH. The same thing happens in business. When there is a downswing, the weaker plays get filtered out. When the upswing returns, money flows into the new leaders.

    Dropping like a stone!!!

    USD/XRP certainly is falling!!!! (Hint: the order of the pair is important)
  13. The press cheer leaders seem to have restarted too. This is a Daily Express article published today: https://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/1040006/brexit-news-cryptocurrency-bitcoin-price-value-uk-economy/amp Not a highbrow paper, but does inform a certain section of the populous.
  14. I’m sticking to my theory that the Crypto Market is splitting into 2 parts. The regulated and approved part, which involves Banks, Regulators etc this is where my main assets are (95% XRP and 5% AML Bitcoin from the ICO). And the under the radar privacy part....where people do what they will. Anyway, having tucked away a few BTCP and previously having held XVG and BCN, i decided to also take a small punt on BTCI (Bitcoin Incognito - new ticker XBI). This was more in the way of a bit of technical fun as I wanted to try out a POS Coin. I bought the 1500 coins needed to run a Masternode -?this was cheap as the price has tanked from $0.60 down to $0.14 so only cost $200 (versus $800 for some of the early players) and I am now running a $5 VM in a cloud service as my Masternode. I’ve also got a test node running in Hyper-V which I may use once i’ve earnt more coins. Anyway the thought I was going to share is that the barriers to entry on new “BitCoins” are very low. Many of the new coins are easier to use and superior to BTC from a technical and anonymity standpoint. If people adopt them as privacy solutions, I can’t see Bitcoin winning out in this space , as frankly Bitcoin is not anonymous in the slightest. Given that we also know that BTC can’t comply with AML/KYC, I almost see it slipping down the crack in the middle. Certainly it percentage market share keeps falling. Given that ETH is also technically overloaded and too slow - XRP will end up being the clear winner almost by default. That said, i’ll sudden rise to $15 per XRP any day!

    Will XRP win by default?

    Random update on my XBI Project Investment. The Coin has now recovered to $0.39 and I bought 30,000 Coins at the 2/2.5 Cent low. With the Staking and MN rewards I am not sitting on 46,000 XBI. I have traded a few out to buy XRP, but overall my original outlay of $420 is now worth about $16k. Not bad going. I am hanging in for now as the volume on XBI has increased from just $1000 per day to up to a $100k in the last week. It probably has a good way to go and I suspect will replace the ill fated Bitcoin Private.

    omg here we go again CoInBAsE

    Remember, remember the 5th of November. Gunpowder, treason and plot........ Clearly people in Guy Fawkes masks are going to blow up all the fiat!!!! Remind me to watch V for Vendetta again!

    omg here we go again CoInBAsE

    I’ve already got XRP listed in my Coinbase Wallet. Just lists the price though, doesn’t actually hold XRP. Perhaps that’s why my Coinbase Wallet is empty!!!!!!!!!! Haven’t needed CB in a long time. LBX is cheaper for buying XRP as I don’t need to pay such extreme bank fees, and I hold my XRP in Toast Wallet and on Ledger Nanos.

    Justification and Excuses Coming soon!

    I'm sure I called $64k per XRP at one point, though may have been tongue in cheek!

    XRP set to dethrone ETH again

    A still there. Though they traded places a few times. This good new for XRP and Crypto generally. If XRP runs at BTC, the market will explode!

    XRP set to dethrone ETH again

    ETH has run out steam though. Technically it is a broken M2M payment infrastructure, not a Coin. Great if you want to pay for API calls, but no good for real business.

    XRP set to dethrone ETH again

    I agree. ETH actually is not bad tech, it is designed to support automated M2M services. But it isn’t really suited to being a Cryptocurrency. In the ETH world you’d ideally have hundreds of different ETH chains for different purposes, today we have ETH, ETC and forks like NEO, but these are still trying to be currencies rather than M2M payment protocols. The big issue is that ETH lacks performance and so would need parallel divergent Blockchains to be of any use. XRP on the other hand delivers its core functionality really well!!!
  22. I think XRP is now baked in on CoinBase!
  23. According to the report above Coinbase’s trade is down 85%. That is going to hurt and specifically they have too few assets on their books. I’d say XRP on CB is now a foregone conclusion - if not Coinbase woud become CoinBust!

    Will Ripple Surpass Bitcoin??

    Thing is, new tech always surpasses old tech. Token Ring was replaced by Ethernet, then 10Mb/s Ethernet by 100Mb/s the Gigabit, then 10GbE now 100GbE. The Block Printing Press, by Typewriters, then Wordprocessors and then AI Dictation. The horse-drawn cart by the xar... ........no let’s keep using a slow and environmentally damaging crypto currency forever.
