    Ripple and XRP Show Uptick in Institutional Interest

    When the #2 spot is referred to as "the throne" you know that there's something wonky about the rating system.
  2. Imagine you are a developer, and you've made something you think is really great for technical reasons. now you have to schmooze the people who have sunk money into the market and think you're going to make them rich. imagine the fake smiles on their faces when they meet you, and having to brown nose those types of people. god. SHUDDER.

    Everyone seems to know when the "bull run" is coming. That is good. Yes.

    XRP: time for some hard decisions

    This is a popular sentiment but my feeling is that people are more likely to trick you into giving them money you don't realize you're leaving "on the table" by taking advantage of your own mental errors. Remember if they take you to court and lose they will pay your court costs.

    XRP: time for some hard decisions

    "fiduciary duty" look up all the laws your state has about the fiduciary duties owed by every person who gives you advice. repeatedly ask yourself if that person is ignoring any of those laws. don't do anything they tell you to do until you are sure you have adequately investigated all options. your policy should be "i get 3 days to think it over before signing anything." watch out for "we need to do this now" in all its forms. i know that sounds obvious, but i sold something (not crypto) recently and things get very very confusing when you are involved personally. it's like your brain switches modes. or trades itself for someone else's brain temporarily. and the danger is that your agent will be in a position to do much of the thinking for you, and of course knows much more than you do. also remember in the end if things go wrong it can be very difficult to find a lawyer who will want to help you go after someone in the industry the lawyer has expertise in, since they get most of their work from industry referral lists, and not from your state's bar referral program.
  12. I don't give a rat's ass about "altcoin market." i'm talkin' XRP man! everyone knows btc is way overvalued. as long as it continues to be propped up, and as long as it represents the large share of the liquidity among crypto, this side show is going nowhere.
  13. fundamentals won't drive the price of xrp until btc goes well below $5,000 and everyone realizes this game is no longer a g-damned kindergarten sandbox.
  14. Bitcoin has one practical use: laundering money. Well to do that you also need exchanges. Whatever. They don't care about energy. The electricity is on us. Energy use is driven by public policy. Too many libertarians shilling bitcoin. So to answer your question about energy use: blame the libertarians. They are everywhere.
  15. Because global politics is an enormous a massive side show. Much like bitcoin.
