  1. Get specific. Comments like this are not only disrespectful to blog authors that have put enormous effort into their writing (like me), they also disrespect other forum readers who are wondering why you are making a blanket statement like this one. Unless, of course, you are intentionally trolling me.
  2. RV Sales may include some number of people who don't have a choice about scaling down, but most of the time when somebody loses their house, it doesn't include an option for 'getting a smaller one;' the bank just takes the house and that's the end of the story. Instead, RV sales are primarily linked to the strength of the overall economy in their role as a luxury purchase; a big one. Good question about the timeline. I don't know if there's a lot of precedents for that. FYI - Interledger Connectors did go through an upgrade in the first quarter of this year. if you're under the impression that 'ILP hasn't had any additional changes for at least 2-3 quarters,' you may want to check out 'Rafiki:' https://medium.com/interledger-blog/introducing-rafiki-e3de4710d3de Yes; Wietse Wind indicated that the first version of Xumm will be available this year. I'll flag him in case he wants to comment further: @xrptipbot Honestly, I had never visualized banks using Xumm. Again, Wietse can comment. In all the discussions and examples, it's always been about retail payments or transfers. Basically, situations where a retailer can send Xumm a 'request for payment' via API. I don't think that's the goal of Xpring. Xpring states its goal as higher-level than that; that does sound like a component part of an individual strategy, however. I do not know the answer, as I don't have insight about the full process for on-boarding new Xpring projects. Well, I don't comment on price, as there are too many unpredictable components that go into price discovery. However, I can definitely talk about demand or volume; I would say that currently, even though ILP can handle any currency, and xRapid can settle in any currency, XRP is the one digital asset that possesses the base-layer characteristics and capabilities out-of-the-box that are needed for payment streaming. (Payment Channels + ILP + STREAM) So yes, XRP *should* be the primary digital asset benefiting from xRapid volumes.

  4. Yes! And those are only the Japan numbers! Worldwide, LINE is used by just under one billion people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_(software)
  5. I use sites, including the Ledger Exposed, that list elements of what you're asking about; and there's been a lot of posts here on XRP Chat that discuss escrow / supply, etc... So my advice is for you to search through the posts here on the forum. The other source is the quarterly reports from Ripple, along with my cross-reference & analysis of those reports.

  7. I think you're right. The impacted businesses have already been negatively affected by the existing delay in these regulations. Because of that, the regulators will be under increasing scrutiny; also, the hearings resulting from Facebook's Libra whitepaper have energized calls for clear regulation.
  8. Thanks for that reminder about the time frames even Apple was subject to; while their turnaround time has benefitted from advancements in various areas, new products, technology, and solutions take serious time to shake out the bugs and get to a 'ready-to-easily-use' point. I'd love to hear from bank technology employees that have interacted with integration of the RippleNet technology stack; that would really answer a lot of question. Also it would be great if we could get @BobWay to comment on this topic too.
  9. My gut feeling (no source) is that XRP is owned by SBI's CEO and others, in addition to SBI. And ... SBI owns 11% of Ripple. That's enough for a board position for them, and my guess is that their interests align quite closely with Ripple's. They want to see XRP adopted for those reasons, IMO. Ha! You noticed this too? I've wondered the same thing quite a bit; I think it's due to the fact that Ripple is still treading carefully until their legal actions are resolved. But of course i could be wrong on that; perhaps a lawyer here on the forum can weigh in on it.

  11. It was less than 50%; but still enough to wield considerable influence.
  12. I'll have to completely disagree with this. The entire point of 'going public' is to access additional capital for additional growth. IMO going public would be a great thing - it would enhance capital by factors that make it very attractive.
