    US Tax Deduction for XRP Losses

    ...and if you mortgaged your home to buy Bitcoin at $20,000 you can deduct your interest payments.
  2. "Euro Exim Bank plans to start using XRP in cross-border payments in the first quarter of this year. It hopes to not only be the first bank to use XRP and xRapid in cross-border payments, but to help other banks take the same path." Sounds good to me

    ...when XRP hits $20.00 we can meet up...my private island or yours.

    Nashville - Meetup February 23, 2019

    One vote for a $20.00 meetup. I'll buy every Zerper in attendance a beverage of their choice. Promise.
  5. ...so, in the video, they make it appear as though, faster than you can say "Voila!" the money is in the till. Yes, I would like to know what the actual cost of that three beer transaction was also.
  6. The Wallet of Satoshi: https://bitcoinist.com/grandma-friendly-bitcoin-lightning-network-wallet-launches-in-australia/ I have more questions than answers regarding this announcement. It looks quick, but how much does it cost a poor slop to buy three beers?

    Kraken Enables Bitcoin Cash and XRP Margin Trading

    Warning: margin calls can be painful
  9. Someone please start a 2019 price prediction poll!
  10. We overshot the runway? Perhaps it was irrational ebullience. Expectations of massive price appreciation took flight at the beginning of this year like a Hwasong-12 IRBM, only to crash and burn, having missed the intended target by many miles. Alas, the best laid plans o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-gley. Who could have foreseen crypto-winter? Yes, we were off the mark a wee bit (an enormous understatement). In February ripplewaytogo started a price prediction poll: Here are the quarterly price averages from that predication: Most of us would have been happy with the square root of these numbers today. So, where do we go from here? Let not your heart be troubled. We are about to cross “The Chasm”: Geoffrey A. Moore, Crossing the Chasm, Marketing and Selling High-Tech Products to Mainstream Customer (revised edition), HarperCollins Publishers, New York, 1999 pp 67-71 I looked at 2018 as a year where the tracks were laid but the locomotive didn’t leave the roundhouse. For me it was an opportunity to dollar cost average and continue to buy in at lower-than-expected prices. I continue to do so. I’m not a $589 guy, but I refuse to apologize for my expectations for Ripple and XRP in 2019 and beyond.
  11. ...and in the USA we know who's leading the charge with the Securing America’s Internet of Value Coalition.
  12. ...or, in a short-term sale scenario, as ordinary income (like trading in foreign currencies). (I am not a tax expert)
  13. ...or, as I understand it, at a capital gains rate in the US and not as ordinary income?

    XRP is ‘Starting to Break Out’

    "Lee says he’s standing by his revised prediction that Bitcoin will hit $15,000 by the end of the year, although he admits the clock is ticking fast." Which year exactly?...
  15. I disagree with many of Teeka's opinions on Bitcoin, but this article is worth a read: https://townhall.com/columnists/teekatiwari/2018/11/13/teeka-tiwari-on-bitcoin-vs-the-stock-market-n2535604 For those TLTR'ers, here's the Cliff's Notes: he posits that since crypto is uncorrelated to stocks, bonds, and other commodities, Wall Street is waking up to crypto as an attractive diversification. They are beginning to view crypto as a risk-adjustment mechanism and are now poised to embrace digital assets just as they did junk bonds in the 80's and internet stocks in the 90's. With $100 trillion of the world's wealth in global stock markets, if just 1% were to be allocated to crypto...
