    TheHoff reacted to XRPKronk in US Banks are Getting Frantic   
    Alright guys, its been a hell of a week for Ripple and crypto in general. We are witnessing the beginning of a banking revolution- its only going to get crazier as we head into 2020.
     
    PART 1: Let me start this post by telling you a conversation I had with my mother, an executive loan officer and branch manager of a regional bank in the south:
    After the usual mother/son conversation, I asked her how her job was going since she just came back from family leave. APPARENTLY....
    "The top executives are freaking out. The projections for loan income are completely off due to the FED announcement."
    If you're not in the US, basically the central bank wants to lower interest rates next month. The effect? Here is an excerpt from a Yahoo Finance article:
    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/fed-interest-rate-cut-horizon-121512567.html
    So, US banks will be struggling to make the quota for this fiscal half because the banks projected the rate to actually increase rather than decline. This meant that many banks gave adjustable rate loans to borrowers in hopes that the prime rate would increase over time. 
     
    PART 2: Responses from other banks have ranged from nonchalant to panic
    As you can imagine, banks want to keep a lid on their panic state. Most have released statements that say they were prepared for the rate decline. Some are in denial and think the FED will call back on its majority vote to cut the rate
    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/20/one-major-bank-is-holding-the-line-saying-the-fed-wont-cut-rates-this-year.html
    Once Goldman Sachs executive went all the way to say smaller banks are screwed 
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-20/goldman-sachs-executive-says-legacy-retail-banks-are-screwed
    Based of the conversation with my mother, I would agree that the banks are concerned and stand to lose a lot of money. 
     
    PART 3: ENTER CRYPTO- Libra is announced, and the Moneygram Move
    Okay so, unless you live under a rock, the news this week has been amazing. Facebook announces Libra under much criticism.
    The announcement had a few effects:
    Whether you love it or hate it, it has helped bring crypto into the spotlight this week. All press is good press for crypto, that much is true.  Regulators have sprung into action. Already making statements about the regulation of Libra and crypto in general. (See quotes below) https://www.apnews.com/ee872c2a79494a1183866bd1dc9c9083
    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/20/facebook-libra-cryptocurrency-faced-with-central-bank-warnings.html
    https://cryptonews.com/news/fatf-decides-to-tighten-crypto-regulation-report-4092.htm
    There are plenty of other quotes, but i think this suffices.
    A final effect is that banks will be looking for an alternative or an edge against their competitors. Ripple and Xrapid already exist and has gone through extensive trials over the past 5 years.  Brad Garlinghouse has already made the statement that Ripple has has a "record week" due to the Libra Announcement:
    BOOM- Thank you, Facebook.
    Ripple is also in the spotlight for the Moneygram Deal. MoneyGram's Stock rose over 150% and huge announcements for new corridors were made as moneygram is expanding their footprint in India. 
    Ripple is making other moves as SBI Remit and SCB Thailand are featured in their Paying Forward promo videos (check twitter, i'm too lazy at this point to embed them lol)
     
    Conclusion
    TLDR: Banks are hurting from the potential FED rate drop and crypto appears this week to banks as a way to cut costs. 
    The financial transformation is on the horizon and is approaching fast!
     
    If your read all that, congratulations. You're amazing!

    I think it's strange how much people care about this. After carrying kids around on my right hip for so long, I am used to using my left hand for things. Since I don't actually have a camera crew that follows me around, that's how left-handed pictures turn out. I don't like posting pictures of myself nearly as much as people like to chide me for. I don't like it all. I hate it. Try and find a picture of me in my 20's or even in my early 30's. Do you think any woman thinks "Now that I'm 41, it feels like a good time to start taking pictures of myself to share online in a predominantly (young) male industry,  filled with vitriol, that scrutinizes every breath I take, and actively hates  me?" No. I do it DESPITE that. Contrary to what dude's with middle-aged, single mom fetishes may think, I post pictures for the women. Like attracts like. I want to be visibly present and this is the best that I can do. People who like to talk about all of the attention I crave are never able to explain why, then, have I turned down every single interview request over the years?  I push myself to be as personable as I can be because I want to be understood and I want to be visible to the other "regular people" in the world.
    Agreed. I was embarrassed at some of the comments and behavior coming from XRP supporters. It would be analogous to one flavor of Bitcoin making fun of another flavor of Bitcoin because their mempool was full. Same thing could happen to you, dude. Even more importantly, those people failed to recognize that the Stellar network SUCCEEDED, as designed, and stopped forward progress until it was safe. That was a victory for anyone championing Consensus over PoW. 
    Thank you for this. 
    Up until recently, I have never *only* liked XRP. One of the main features of the XRPL that originally attracted me to it is that it's currency agnostic. 
    I am uncomfortably open about things so people don't have to speculate. I try really hard to do the right thing, knowing full well that not only are strangers online watching closely and judging, but my 2 kids as well. They are teenagers now and I have to atone for all that I do. They read every word written about me. 
    I am sad at the way Bitcoin turned out. I didn't get involved in crypto to make a financial investment. I have always been poor. When the financial/housing crisis hit, I had a baby and a toddler and I felt terrified and helpless. The houses on every side of me went into foreclosure. They stayed empty for a long time. When somebody bought the house next door, they bought it for $12,000. When learned about Bitcoin, I latched on like it was a life raft. This is the Bitcoin that I was out evangelizing for:
    The entire article is good but it turned out to be ********. I was hopeful when Bitcoin forked that there was a chance to salvage it, but then Craig Wright showed up and there was just more infighting than I have the energy and capacity for, mostly because being an XRP supporter has been so damn taxing as well. And it's gotten worse lately.
    Nonstop **** like this. I don't know why, but as crypto enthusiasts poor into this space and grow in their knowledge, thoughts and reasoning, new XRP supporters have taken a different route, embracing ignorance and deciding to hunt cartoon bears and create conspiracies instead. 
    Jed reached out to me, in a sincere way, because he felt misjudged by me and wanted a chance to be heard. I have no reason to hate him and everything he touches into eternity. Life is short and I don't enjoy fighting with people or holding onto hate. The second news broke about Steller and IBM, everybody was trying to make it sound like a loss for Ripple/XRP. Good news for Stellar doesn't mean bad news for Ripple and vice versa. I'm not willing to spend one second getting into an XLM/XRP ******* match. And I don't want to participate in the cheering that goes on whenever another project stumbles. 
    I learn by doing and I'm here to learn. 
     
    Because, for the most part, if one of you gets screwed over, nobody will care. I have a small platform and try to use it to amplify the voices that don''t get heard. 
    I disagree. Neither my opinion of Ripple nor XRP has changed. It's because I am secure and feel confident in XRP that I don't feel the need to hate everything that isn't XRP. 
    There are lots of cool projects popping up everyday. I think it's exciting and I definitely want to be a part of it. I don't view crypto as a spectator sport.

    Unlike most content creators, I always thought his early stuff was far better than his current.
    When he first started I watched every video, he made very well spoken and calculated analysis of news, fundamentals and market situations. Far beyond his age.
    It then felt like he "sold out" if you will, and started streaming and became somewhat of a hype train money grabber.  Honestly haven't watched anything recently so maybe I'm wrong.
     
    I still agree he deserves some credit, at least he puts the time and effort into doing it. I've always been meaning to do XRP related videos but apart from avoiding being a cryptotuber, I'm just too damn lazy.

    Question
     
    Answer
    First, he corrects the statement about Ripple providing liquidity.
    Second, he puts into perspective what happened overnight in the market place.
    Third, he translates the question into an appropriate one.
    Again, he points out the liquidity does not have to do anything with Ripple itself.
    Again, he reformulated the initial question.
    Again, he states what happened overnight.
    He highlights the liquidity difference between XRP and the other existing solutions.
    He depicts what the market would chose, given the advantageous liquidity risk XRP provides, associated with the limited liquidity cost.
    Again he states what happened the day before in the market place, which is pretty nascent in his opinion, that itself is enough of an answer to the initial but reformulated question.
