    Yes, they would right now get an near instant arbitrage path towards Bitstamp (or any other RCL enabled gateway), meaning someone might buy BTC at Bitstamp for fiat money and within a few seconds transfer them to their Poloniex account.
    Also RCL enables easier auditing and transparency (many exchanges are accused to be "bucket shops"), it is possible to know how many coins of a certain currency need to be held by Poloniex at every single second in the past and present.
    One issue right now is that Polo has a lot of very different currencies and things like TickSize or transfer fees are account wide settings. This means that they would either need to confuse their users with setting up dozens of different gateway addresses that issue a single currency each or to have the same settings for all of their markets. Both far from ideal and currently not subject to change.
    Last but not least, there is no good interface to use RCL. Gatehub is the only wallet provider I know that might have more than one single developer working on this and even they don't publish their code (so good luck with entering your secret key in there which controls everything you'll ever do on RCL unless you do some quite advanced stuff to seperate your master signing key from your current signing key). They are also a gateway, so they have very little incentive to make it easier for you to NOT use their own gateway or to make it as easy as possible to switch gateways/enable additional features or services like https://sepa.link/ (open source by the way: https://github.com/miracle2k/ripple-sepa-bridge)
    Using RCL as a back-end for an exchange has its issues, especially key escrow (who signs user transactions?) the extremely high lag compared to an internal trading engine (waiting up to 3500000µs until the next ledger closes is unacceptable for actual traders) and if they don't want to issue on the RCL, they could just run a private fork, maybe tune it a little and hope for ILP to also give them some liquidity while avoiding having to deal with XRP. The thing stopping them is likely both the downsides of this approach and the fact that they probably do not have the proper expertise to set up and run a rippled cluster and validator network in a safe, secure and reliable way.

    I'm not sure you understood what I meant.
    I was thinking, would there be advantages for let's say Poloniex to integrate RCL? Idk, for security, maintenance, having all their cryptos wallets in IOU, separated hot wallets. Not even talking about a gateway as we know it or anything RCL facing for the user. Could this be promoted toward them by Ripple?

    That's not exactly the distribution plan he announced back then (and I remember we should have had two different choices) but whatever...
    What math will be used : total XRP (100B), total XRP held by others (37B) or distributed amount back then in 2014?
    I don't know what numbers of coins it will give us, but I guess it will be ridiculous relative to our loss back then.

    We can't expect everything will come from Ripple, if we're interested to buy XRP on various marketplaces, we should let exchanges know. What do you think? It Can't hurt.

    If your coin is awesome, exchanges will list it on their own without the need to ask. If you have to go begging with hat in hand "pleeze list my coin, pretty pleeze can you list it" then you've lost.

    I make a point to submit a support request on a regular basis if there is trading pair that I think should be there. But I always tell them which exchange already has that pair available --- I leave it vague whether I have an account there or not. The pair that I've been bugging two exchanges on are USD/XRP .

    Looks like genuine new members requesting activation. I guess we should take this as a good sign 
    Thanks to all the people that help activate the new wallets, its great for growing the community!

    Why fund wallets?
    If you send them 20 XRP, they won't have enough to add a trust line and deposit an IOU. And if you want to deposit an IOU on the Ripple network you probably have to be KYC on a gateway and you will be able to fund your wallet yourself. If you send them more than 20 XRP, you don't know if same guy won't ask several times. Gatehub has at least some protection against this.
    The message we should give:
    You can convert any crypto to XRP and send it to your Ripple wallet it will activate it (because I think some people don't understand this).

    Yes you can...also shapeshift, super easy if you have any crypto.
    EDIT: shapeshift doesn't have XRP anymore ...super strange
  16. namini liked a post in a topic by kanaas in Wallet activation discussion   
    It looks like even this small XRP amount might be enough for some trying to game the activation efforts. Couldn't this be resolved by having a mandatory activation amount that INCLUDES enough (30?) XRP and for the activation, and for one trust line and for one transaction. Being an inclusive amount it should not be possible send none of those 30XRP to another wallet and therefor they cannot be not gamed, but are just enough to bootstrap basic trading on a wallet. Like it is now, one needs 20 XRP for activation and 10 more XRP for and trust and first tx. This 10 XRP can be transferred and collected on another account leaving the activated with just 20 XRP. It's peanuts for a gaming activity but in some countries people can buy some food with a few XRP....
