  1. still broken in https://coinmarketcap.com/all/views/all/ lol
  2. Given it's a mineable coin I wonder how the reduce the supply
  3. Still rising! Next stop ETH could this be the needle that burst the bitcoin bubble* *Leaving XRP and those with real use cases as the only survivors
  4. It's only a few markets - probably outliers, will be excluded soon from the CMC valuation hopefully. It's the coin with the highest number in supply on there!! 2.5 trillion!
  5. Not sure how you developed that causal relationship, I don't honestly care either though so please don't bother explaining.
  6. I don't expect XRP to go above $2 this year. It will peak around $5 in about 18 months, then stabilise there.
  7. I found it circulating social media and thought it worth a share. I have all my zerps in a wallet safe.
  8. It will shoot up and down again exactly like BCH did CB doesn't add permanent value
  9. Even if they do add it, Bitcoin cash is now where it was at before it was added to CB
  10. Here are some example steady growth rates of normal (non crypto) investments: Zero risk, regulated savings accounts - 0.5% per YEAR Low risk government bonds - 2% per YEAR Issued gilts - 3% per YEAR Low risk ETFs - 5% per YEAR High risk ETFs - 10% per YEAR Note - these are per YEAR!!
  11. This 1998 Paul Krugman quote always has me in stitches: http://www.businessinsider.com/paul-krugman-responds-to-internet-quote-2013-12?IR=T
  12. Their UK accounts don't make for pleasant reading https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09083955/filing-history
  13. Early naughties actually when it burst... but point remains, from every burst bubble rises a few stars (Amazon, Google, eBay etc)
  14. The value of XRP is equal to the amount someone will buy it off you for Exchanges set their rates based on various factors, but try to stay roughly the same to avoid people buying off one and selling on another to make a quick profit at the expense of the cheaper exchange (called arbitrage). I think most non-KRW exchanges ignore the KRW ones when setting their prices, since they are not direct competitors - the South Korean law changes mean that you need various forms of Korean identification in order to trade in KRW/XRP, making arbitrage between them and other fiats impossible This is what I think you are asking, but I agree... wat?
  15. I see this turning of the tide as typical of the 90s dot com bubble BTC = The market leading search engine, Yahoo XRP = That (then) little known search engine called Google. We know how that one turned out. Stay hodling. [PS I'm aware of the irony that Brad is ex-Yahoo in this, but the fundamentals are there]
  16. If anyone wants to watch it btw, it's episode 5 of "Dirty Money" season 1. Good series overall, they talk about everything from Pharma to the VW emissions scandal
  17. I was watching a documentary on Netflix about HSBC and their violations of various acts around money laundering and the above TWEA, resulting in a > 1 bn USD fine for them in 2012. It got me thinking, how will banks ensure they comply with the regulations if they start accepting XRP? Could they "blacklist" enemy wallets? Admittedly HSBC chose to ignore their own internal warnings on some deposits from Enemy accounts, or changed the names slightly (adding hyphens eg. TAJ-CO versus TAJCO was one example) but what's to stop a blacklisted account holder setting up a new wallet and sending from that? NB This is not FUD - I'm a HODLER, just a discussion on how banks could approach this with - any - blockchain, but specifically the RCL since that's what we are interested in here?
  18. Market volatility traditionally has been a symptom of over committed investors, be it through high leveraged trades, or in the case of crypto, I think people are putting more in than they can afford to lose, breaking rule number one. As such, the prices dip and everyone panics and withdraws to "cut their losses". Psychology at work here nothing else. The HODLers will either be the biggest winners (the original BTC hodlers), or the biggest losers (anyone hold Asbestos futures these days? lol)
  19. BCH isn't available to buy in EU on coinbase https://support.coinbase.com/customer/portal/articles/2911542-bitcoin-cash-faq Latest update says "expected early January" CB is a joke, hopefully it will soon die allowing others to take place. Please hurry to EU, Coinsquare!!
