  1. Well XRP appears in my Coinbase wallet now, but I don’t think I can exchange it or trade it. So I guess CB is just a wallet company.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. $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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Just like .com Lots of failures, 1 Amazon, 1 Google, 1 Facebook
  9. 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.
  10. USD/XRP certainly is falling!!!! (Hint: the order of the pair is important)
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. I'm sure I called $64k per XRP at one point, though may have been tongue in cheek!
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. 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!!!
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
