  1. Exactly my point. XRP is still speculative, highly speculative, but most folks in here are treating it as certainly. It becomes and echo chamber in which anyone expressing caution is dismissed as a tool or just an agent of FUD.
  2. Don’t just dismiss this as FUD. It’s more of an attempt to avoid this becoming an echo chamber. “The Financial Times reported this week that its enquires showed that 16 banks its reporter spoke to who were testing ripple technology, were not using its XRP token. That underlines the extent to which buyers of XRP are trading on hope rather than fact at the moment, and recent volatility will not have endeared banks to using the token.”
  3. One thing I’ve learned. Dont believe any short-term forecast you read. Nobody, and I mean nobody, knows what will happen in the short-term. The long-term is a guess as well, although it at least has the potential of following fundamentals, etc. There are no guarantees here, folks.
  4. "After" XRP

    Why wait until XRP hits $100? Find a way to be more generous today!
  5. "After" XRP

    Of course. I’m merely warning all of us not to be deceived and fall into the love of money. Seems to be fairly easy to do.
  6. "After" XRP

    Two other reminders that I think are important here: Luke 12: 16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ 18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’ 20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you.Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.” And James 4: 13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
  7. I’m surprised that so few understand that markets react so quickly to expected, let alone certain, future events that there is no doubt if $20 was certain it would most certainly be there already. Do you really think it would take months for the market to react to such certainty? No, it is still the uncertainty of it all that keeps the price where it is. In fact, it is likely that the reason the price has not shown a reaction to Moneygram and other news lately, it is the markets already predicted and reacted to them ahead of time. The Moneygram bump everyone was looking for had already occurred. And nite that I didn’t say $20 or $100 was impossible. Or even unlikely. Just that it is not anywhere near as certain in the consensus of the markets, which include a lot of very smart and connected people, as some are making it out to be.
  8. If it was certain that XRP would hit $100 or even $20, it would already be there.
  9. Need some Ledger Nano S help

    Does anyone else find there to be nothing intuitive about the nano or any other wallet?
  10. So after you send your LTC to binance do you have to change it to ETH before buying XRP or anything else? NEVER MIND. I SEE THIS WAS ALREADY ANSWERED.
  11. I just came across this video which talks about Toast Wallet’s announcement to begin selling ripple using a credit card in the near future. I haven’t seen any discussion of this on here and wondering if anybody else has come across this news. The first part of the video is about his price protection in the Toast Wallet announcement comes in the last couple minutes. https://cryptotown.io/video/why-ripple-will-jump-to-1365-after-crash-lets-do-the-maths-ripple-xrp-price-prediction-2018-sH2rAZsGKao/index.html
  12. Anyone have any thoughts on savedroid? Looks like they want to create lower barriers for entry into the crypto market for average investors. Uses some sort of AI but I don’t have a full handle on it. White paper is found here: ico.savedroid.com
  13. Embracing FUD

    The worst thing you can do is respond to “negative” posts or those posing what seems, at least to them, as legitimate concerns with “that’s just the same old ignorant FUD” while giving no legitimate counter argument. It begins to look like nothing more than ad hominems and is akin to SEC/Big Ten arguments than investing conversations. Don’t turn this into an echo chamber.
  14. Minty (modded) Nano Ledger S

    I picked up a ledger Nano s off eBay this week but that was before I read about resellers stealing keys. How do I reset it before I use it?
  15. Terminology

    Funny coming from a guy who goes by “Berzerker.”
