  1. At what price will you begin selling your XRP? And what price will you be willing to sell it all (if at any price?) For me I'm personally HODL'ing until it hits about $30 per XRP (I expect sometime around 2020) at which time I might sell 20-25% of my stack. Next price would be $100, then probaly $250. I'll keep a little just in case for the next decade to see how high the price can go too
  2. IF you have money to invest in XRP, then it should be invested. The 10 cent per XRP difference won't be a huge drawback with respect to your returns, unless you're making a major investment (10k XRP or more) It's unlikely (though possible) that XRP will ever be significantly lower than it is now
  3. Agreed. I highly doubt the majority of American (and worldwide) population will ever buy into crypto.
  4. There are quite a few people (at least in the hundreds) who held or bought a significant amount of XRP when it was less than 1 cent who would have become millionaires in the deal. If XRP goes past it's ATH (it will) then thousands more will become millionaires
  5. Despite the fact that stocks and bonds are a great way to see a dependable return on investment, there are still many, many, many people who have not invested. I think that even as crypto goes more main stream, it will still be something that the vast majority of Americans (and worldwide population) do not invest in at least for the next 20-30 years
  6. You seem to be arguing something I never said or purported to say. Never said that Ripple/XRP isn't gaining traction and that more banks are signing on. If you're going to argue with me, please stick to what I said, rather than reimagining to something that I never said or even implied. If it's so emphasized, why don't you say exactly what negativity I've mentioned?
  7. So far, has the increasing utility had a major impact on price? Do you have any CONCRETE evidence that the increasing utility over the last 6 months of XRP has had an impact on price? Have the significant increases in price had anything to do with utility, or have they all linked to Bitcoin's rise and fall? You ask me about data - do you have any to back up your point? Never said that. Please go back and re-read my post. Has this had a major impact on price over the last several months?
  8. As someone outside of the "bigger countries" it has been ridiculously difficult to purchase XRP, and crypto in general. I have had to resort to paying DOUBLE on a site to purchase. I now go through a friend who buys and then transfers. While is may be relatively easy for those based in North America/Europe/certain Asian countries, there's still 75% of the population who lives outside of that where buying crypto is next to impossible
  9. My thread isn't negative though. It's simply saying that despite the amazing utility of XRP, that will not be the driving force of price in the short to medium term.
  10. Agree 100% Unfortunately I don't know if the market will be any less volatile in the next 3 years either, even with Ripple's ability to totally change the financial system.
  11. At the end of 2021 I'm anticipating XRP's price to be somewhere between $15 - $50, with some room above and below that.
  12. The money doesn't have to come from anywhere. A coin's marketcap and the actual money that has been invested are two different things. Apple may be "worth" a trillion dollars, but it doesn't mean that people have invested that trillion dollars. It's simply a valuation - one that is tethered on a number of different factors, including speculation.
  13. THANK YOU. Happy to discuss, and listen to ALL persons who disagree with me just like those who agree with me. I don't appreciate juvenile comments, or persons who are saying I'm trying to spread FUD simply because you disagree. I'll repeat (for the final time) - I love the technology Ripple is bringing out, I think that XRP is a great short to medium term investment, I just am not sure that the innovation will translate to a significant impact on the price of XRP.
  14. It seems you're enjoying being juvenile and ignorant. No need to insult me because you disagree. I'm more than happy to argue my points and hear others disagreeing.
  15. The majority of what you're pointing out use minute quantities of the substance. I'm well aware that they are used in many electronics (again, in minute quantities). Perhaps I should have worded it differently
  16. So we're back to the question...what is a "high price" needed for the volume? And what happens to XRP if that price isn't reached? Despite the fact that you know, and I know, the utility of XRP, and despite the fact that there are hundreds of institutions who could easily purchase the escrow amounts to use, why is it that the majority of XRP has been going back into escrow?
  17. If I'm bothering you perhaps you should re read, very carefully, what I've said. I believe that XRP, more than any other coin, has the best use case, and the best likelihood of international adoption. I also believe that for the short term (12-24 months) XRP will be the coin that performs the best. I just DON"T believe that people realise that there are other markers for measuring it's possible success outside of utility, and that's a major blindspot. Also if I'm bothering you, I don't care
  18. Firstly, I'm not conflating the two. However, it is undeniable that THE biggest predictor of the price of XRP, and other Cryptocurrencies, is how well (or badly) Bitcoin is doing.While this MAY change in the medium to long term, it's highly unlikely it will change in the short term. Secondly, the success of XRP is not necessarily tied only to it's price
  19. I love XRP, Ripple, own some myself, and will definitely be buying more over the coming months. Definitely will not be selling for at least another 2-3 years. Don't misconstrue me pointing out a fact to me somehow "hating" on Ripple!
  20. I'm looking forward to buying myself - at the very least twice this year - once now, and again after the ETF most likely is declined
  21. Do you have any proof of that being true? And what range are you speaking about when you say that it has to be a "high value"? Not sure that I necessarily agree. XRP being liquid and XRP being a "high value" are not one and the same. In fact, XRP could be just as useful NOW as it is at $100. There's no real need for it to be "high value", and I'd argue that Ripple could be quite successful even if XRP never increased 1 more cent in value
  22. It's unfortunate that me pointing out that because XRP's price is not tied to it's utility that automatically means that I'm saying that XRP, and RIpple, is somehow rubbish. It's also curious that because I've pointed out one aspect of the investment strategy, it suddenly means that I have no appreciation of the time it takes for these assets to appreciate. Make no mistake, I think XRP, and all the products coming out of Ripple, are fantastic products. Also, I have no doubt in my mind that XRP will significantly appreciate in value within the short to medium term (long term is difficult to say as it depends on how the US and other major governments will decide to regulate crypto) But based on THE HARD DATA looking at cryptocurrency trends over the past DECADE, it's quite obvious that the utility of cryptocurrencies has had very little to do with their price. And any opinion that xRapid, or any other technology using the Ripple network, will have any major impact on the price of XRP is not supported by data/fact, but more wishful thinking and conjecture SO FAR. Could that change in the future? Quite possibly. But until then, XRP and other crypto prices will be pushed more by hype, demand, and the rise and fall of Bitcoin than by any utility that they may offer.
  23. Why are we not using Bitcoin in everyday transactions? How many people are actually USING bitcoin as opposed to investing purely as a store of value? The percentage of people who actually use Bitcoin has increased, but is still significantly ,minute to the point where less than .01% of the world's population has used Bitcoin as anything BUT a store of value. Meanwhile, the price of Bitcoin has skyrocketed astronomically while it's utility, in real world terms, has stagnated. Secondly, I'll repeat again that just because Ripple is a great conduit for financial transactions does NOT mean that it will be adopted en mass by worldwide financial organizations.
  24. Personally, I'm not sure of ANYTHING. I am only using the past examples - i.e. crypto currencies value since it's inception has had almost NOTHING to do with its utility. As a matter of fact, I daresay the utility of Bitcoin has decreased with its rising prices
  25. The best tech isn't always the tech that ends up "winning" by being the most popular.There are literally hundreds of examples of technology that SHOULD be adopted because it saves major amounts of money but isn't, for a number of varying reasons. There is not doubt that Ripple products HAVE great utility, the question is: 1. Whether or not the world's financial system will adopt it en mass as their primary tool for moving money (highly unlikely at least in the short to medium term i.e. 3-5 years) 2. Whether or not this will be XRP, as opposed to some other derivative of Ripple, or another tool for doing so, and how much value if XRP itself is not utilized.
