  1. Of course you remember how FIs used to close the bank accounts of bitcoin exchanges. That's the most basic thing, so few dared to pitch the banks on a use case involving cryptos. The things warmed up after Ethereum proved not to be a vaporware . I can only guess that XRP was taboo as was associated with "scam" and "jed". If i am not wrong, XRP was relatively more aggresively promoted only after SIBOS last year. Things are getting smoother by the week now, see Miguel's video today. Just a thought.

  2. I wouldn't go so harshly against people who were here or in the old forum as supporters back in the times when Ripple was still considered a scam.@kanaas is one of those people and he could share with you some of the Ripple history. The tide raises all ships, so now is easier. It was different back then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. You are one of few names I still recognize around here . Many new names, fresh energy, a lot of optimism. That's great! (I feel old, it's been 4 years since I keep the champagne in the freezer). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Agree with ur view.... Just saying about their different opinions. Until recently, they were two colleagues with different opinions. But only one of them is in charge with xrp (the token/currency). With a high degree of self interest , I wish@miguel to succeed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. long as[mention=942]miguel[/mention] doesn't sell us out to the IMF )) so that xrp is replaced with SDR. Saw that nobody commented on that one, which seems that the general considered probability is small...I am concerned about a black swan on this one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Noticed different opinions coming from@Miguel in the video- priority in liquidity for xrp/fiat pairs vs@vinnie earlier today on chatbox - more important liquidity in xrp/btc pairs. I don't care of taking sides. If it works, I am fine. With excellent execution, even a mediocre idea could be magic. It has happened before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. @vinnie, are you viewing as a possibility that IMF might seek to promote SDR (vs XRP) flowing through DLTs lending SDR to countries and having control over execution of loan agreements and repayments? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. If IMF embraces ILP, perhaps they (IMF) are interested to lend out their currency SDR to the countries through the (any) ledger / blockchain, in this way they monitor that the loans are spent according to the loan agreements and also can squeeze out any revenues out of the borrowing countries when repayment due dates come. It will not matter that XRP can provide quicker/cheaper money flow, this would be a totally different scope. I hope I am wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. bought and paid, with intend to frame. What a waste! You could have bought a mansion with such an xrp amount in five years from now. Just kidding . Nice reference! Thx for sharing. I'll search for a vintage watch.
  10. )) loved the video! The Crypto Cramer:)
  11. Ur right, indeed. Brad seems more charismatic and more "people guy". Not judging/comparing their competence, dedication etc. Chris carried a heavy burden of issues through all these years. Few could have handled it right.
  12. What would be an above average configuration?
  13. Do you know the history of this/previous xrp forum? Do you know how much work has @karlos put into this?
