  1. Nice find! I know he had some distributed computing patents, but I wasn't aware that any were filed as early as 1988. That surprises me.
  2. There's a lot of coins trying to get into the space; BAT is another. Non-coin platforms like Patreon are also there in micropayments.
  3. The possibilities for crypto + gambling are huge. So far, the sites have been relegated to corners of the dark web, but I can see legitimate & legal gambling enterprises getting in on XRP, since it transfers and settles in seconds. Unfortunately, the XRP Tip Bot cannot officially be used for these purposes, and Wietse has had to close many gambling-related suggestions for the XRP Community Fund as well, due to regulatory questions around it for globally-scoped implementations.
  4. Boom! Now that's an idea I've never heard before! Although it would feel funny holding my phone up to scan a button on somebody's ... lapel? (hopefully their lapel)
  5. No need to base that on religion ... science and rational thinking backs up that decision 100%! https://xrpcommunity.blog/crypto-superbowl-consensus-versus-proof-of-work/

  7. I like the idea of having a nice, convenient debunk center, actually. I see you have the XRP Bingo site as a 'sticky' - very good!
  8. We don't see (as many) new ICOs now-a-days. It's interesting to see this one; its also interesting that they mentioned Ethereum only in the context of their ICO token, and even said Ethereum would be replaced.... etc.. and then launched into a sales pitch for some company. But when it comes time to lend credibility to their idea, and how they plan on moving money, they knew enough to include this reference...
  9. The same market behavior happened in late November of 2017. Bitcoin road a fast train up while XRP stagnated for weeks. People even started to lose faith in XRP despite all of the consistently-great news about actual business usage of XRP and Ripple products. And then it hit. And when it hit, the wave of speculative investment transformed into a frenzy that only started to taper off in the second week of January the next year. It exceeded the increases in Bitcoin by a fantastic degree during this three-week period. Leave if you want ... or don't. I'm not here to give financial advice, and I'm not qualified to. Nobody can predict the future; but your comment is exactly the same type of comment I had to endure incessantly in November of 2017. There was nothing I could say then, but I definitely have something to say now.... This is what happened. Source: --https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/--
  10. This part surprised me. I thought that market makers (high-volume traders) made up the majority of the market, not the minority. Or is that what you're including under: ? Love the post, by the way! Lots of detail and 'insider banking' flows with existing (SWIFT) messaging used as an example. Curious to know your perspective on some of the specifics - i.e., where would Ripple tech replace / fit into those flows, or would it completely dis-intermediate them?
  11. I would not jump to that conclusion just yet. Bittrex was being used prior to New York approving or not, so my guess is that Ripple and/or its partners will just adjust the flows to not include transactions that original there? I'm just guessing; we'd need somebody from Ripple to confirm one way or the other.
  12. @lucky Thank you Lucky! I had that bookmarked for later, but just realized how short it was and so I just now listened to it ... and what an amazing coincidence about the topic!! You're not going to believe this, but my blog topic and David Schwartz was a complete coincidence! I'm actually just floored right now ... I loved @JoelKatz's take on it and how he related it to MMORPGs! My own favorite back in the day was Diablo II, but that was years ago now ... Just awesome.

  15. I'll say! Impressive number in just one week, @mDuo13!
  16. Excellent update! Thanks for that; this entire paragraph just went into my notes - looks like I have some analysis incoming. I'm only on my first cup of java. I usually start to get excited on the second cup...
  17. I've heard a variety of labels, including this one. The formal documentation calls it simply "Consensus": https://developers.ripple.com/consensus.html
