    Thanks for the kind words and for the continued interest in all things XRP and Ripple.  Comments and tough love are always welcome btw, as long as the comments are constructive and there is some actual love. I've been impressed with the generally positive and friendly demeanor of the conversations here and am looking forward to significantly participating as things progress.  We're going to have much to discuss going forward. Tuesday is just the beginning.
    Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

    To be honest I think the loose definitions of centralized and decentralized are the crux of the issue anyway. Mostly, decentralization has become a quasi-cultist term used by bitcoin maximalists or altcoin folks. There are some ways in which you could say Ripple is more or less centralized or decentralized.
    For instance, a (web) protocol, by design, is decentralized. However, that doesn't make it so in effect. But then again, you could argue MS Windows is "decentralized", or food production, or even policing; and argue the opposite. You have to appreciate specifics and context. There are strong arguments to say that bitcoin is in fact, largely centralized in terms of the balance of power and those who can control mining, price, code, etc.
    I'm not so bothered about the semantics or even the (de)centralization anyway, since it can be largely a philosophical issue and there are benefits to both ends of the spectrum.

    Even were that not so though, I still think the argument would be spurious. At one time, you could have similarly argued that Bitcoin was centralized because everyone ran the official version of the software and whatever Gavin put in the software wound up running. But that argument would have been spurious too. Sure, everyone ran whatever code Gavin told them to because Gavin was trustworthy and reliable and it would have been awfully tedious for everyone to maintain a separate copy of the code for themselves.
    A central authority in fact who holds no official power and keeps no secrets does not make a system centralized. It's just a convenience for as long as it is able to do what most people want the system to do. So long as people are free to defect at any time they disagree with the actions of the authority, the authority is not a real central authority. An authority followed out of mere convenience or because of its competence is does not make something centralized so long as there are no obstacles to people forming, and following, other authorities.

    This phrase sounds like XRP is a baby's toy, which doesn't integrate well with daddy's big boy "enterprise software" super fast car.
    I put so much faith and behind the scene work on this since 2013, I don't care about money I want to see it succeed.

    Good ideas. I'll pass them on to the right people.
     
    I believe so. At least for a subset of { page, language } pairs.

    iEx.ec Offers an Insight into Its Upcoming Blockchain Based Distributed Computing Platform
    QUOTES
    "The internet as we know is in need of an upgrade and iEx.ec is the one that is going to make it happen. iEx.ec (stands for “I Execute”) is a blockchain based distributed cloud computing system that aims to provide scalable, secure and easily accessible computing resources for decentralized applications.
    iEx.ec uses a distributed ledger to organize a market network where everyone can share and monetize their servers, applications, and datasets.....
    The platform borrows the Distributed and Parallel Computing technology developed by INRIA and CNRS research institutes to create XtremWeb-HEP based computing system. The use of such technology allows integration of much-needed features like fault tolerance, multi-applications, multi-users, hybrid public/private infrastructure, deployment of virtual images, data management, security and accountability and more."

    I didn't buy overpriced XRP and I think my commentaries are constructive, anyway I'm trying to.
    Even Karlos posted recently something along those lines:
    "Ripple management is very lucky that XRP holders have no voting rights. Because if we did, half of them would be clearing their desks right now."

    I copy/paste this not for talking about good or bad performances but to emphasize the fact that owning XRP don't give you any right as it is.

    Yeah, but why should I as a company build on RCL, if the whole network is run by a single company (Ripple) that can decide at any time to shut down the servers, so the whole network? I'm honest, I'd never build any serious application on RCL right now. We are missing decentralization, scalability tests, robustness to delay and network topology tests. Not considering the amount of XRP the company and a few people are holding that could destroy the markets of XRP which is the most useful part in RCL.
