  1. Hardware wallet backdoor.

    If this turns out to be true.... Let's just say I hope it's not true. Lots - and lots - of people investing in crypto have used a nano.
  2. Thanks for the endorsement: Warm-hearted comments like this on XRPChat help me keep it going when trying to convince doubters on other forums!
  3. Brad G. has consistently stated the long-term vision for real utility-driven demand. He absolutely refuses anything less for XRP. We have the right person at the helm (along with CL & JoelKatz, of course! )

    From what I understand, xPool is kind of like it sounds - a pooling of liquidity across exchanges? I could be wrong on this, but I *think* it may operate to simplify the back end for xRapid. Ripple is not done smoothing out xRapid integrations - they will keep tweaking until it's ridiculously simple for banks I think!
  5. I do agree - I think speculation may boost XRP even further than what I expect from utility-driven demand when it happens. Once it's quite apparent that utility driven demand in XRP is going to be gargantuan in size, watch everybody try to board the train at once.
  6. You have a fascinating point about corridors. I'm not sure they would wait.. but perhaps they might wait for a certain level of volume? I imagine that some of those corridors have sketchy volume despite adding their pairings. I think it takes a major high-volume exchange in each corridor's 'issuing currency' country to support what could be high-volume trades. Maybe I'm wrong and SBI VC will provide all the currency pairings needed. ILPv4 is probably going to proceed without looking at SBI VC availability - I think the Interledger updates happen somewhat independently? Again, I could be wrong here, but that's my impression. Unless... there is / are capabilities within version 4 that they need to have prior to hooking all the pipes up? This would surprise me though, as pilots for xRapid are ongoing already.
  7. If the remittance companies are going first, this should offer a test case for regulation conformance. Once that happens, the banks *should* feel more comfortable mimicking this configuration. That's my personal prediction, but we will see very soon whether that prediction is correct!
  8. All of us hope that your question will be answered with much greater specificity at some point. To speculate with a proper educated guess, the first step would be for us to determine how Ripple is planning on standardizing their xRapid implementation, or if they're going to support more than one configuration. My opinion? No matter if it's a dynamic acquisition of XRP (as-needed for each individual payment or transfer), or if it's a mass purchase to replace Nostro account holdings (first leg would already be 'paid for'), it's going to result in increasing levels of demand that dwarf speculative demand from the crypto markets. Keep in mind that the volume in the current crypto market is dwarfed by the daily remittances, ForEx, and cross-border transfer. We're talking numbers measured in the hundreds of billions each day (trillions when it comes to ForEx). Even a small sliver of this market would push XRP well beyond even Bitcoin's current daily volume - on its best day. That's my take. Do you agree / disagree?
  9. As far as I know, they are doing xRapid implentations currently. (Cuallix, MoneyGram, WU, Cambridge, IDT, Merucy FX, Omni, etc..) There's a large number of pilots ongoing; to really get to scale usage, I'm willing to bet they would prefer that SBI VC serve as the back end liquidity providing exchange, however. I could be wrong, but that's my take. I don't expect Ripple to comment, but I'll signal @miguel just on the off chance he stops by.
  10. Ripple continues to build the Internet of value (IOV) and recently heralded new highways to liquidity within XRP. I discuss this progress - along with fascinating other news - in today's blog! Hope you enjoy; please leave any feedback below. Also, feel free to share my blog with anybody and on any platform - and thank you in advance for doing so!

    I support the creation of the Hodor signal.

    Thank you! And no, I do not have insight into this one. I tried to dig up the name of the Ripple person that could help us interpret the charts, but no go. I know he's commented before - either here or on Reddit.

    Hi @Snoopy So the sequence was 1) click on XRP Ledger (CNY / XRP slice) and then 2) Ripple China appears?
