  1. Why would you ever think that??? I have been asking same question. Nobody knows
  2. Contact them and ask. They have a “contact” tab at the bottom of the page (Oh wait their disclaimer and contact info doesen’t actually give out any contact info? Wow that is weird) No worries though, at least they provide a wallet addresss so you can donate. Perhaps if you send a few 1000 drops to rHeZQwKGW3KBT44PbXtp2gykJuicVRxsBP They will provide you the information you request. Otherwise I assume it is run by Internet fairies, who maintain this site purely as volunteers of do-goodiness. And of course this site (Just like XRP itself) is “Not affiliated with Ripple Labs in any way”
  3. You sound a bit upset. Perhaps it is you that needs to step back and relax. I’m not changing my investment strategy simply because some folks can only handle sunshine and rainbows. If RL is for real, nothing I say will impact their future. If not, perhaps some will thank me for not buying into the hype. Unfortunately there are a lot of investors here, who cannot handle anything negative (or neutral) being said about their Super heroes. Pull your head out from under Mr Schwartz’s cape and read the article... You will see that the headline is overstated. I simply pointed that out with a bit of levity.
  4. Business as usual for the RL marketing team. Nothing like another ambiguous announcement to start the week. Maybe the moon shot, is on a Hot Air balloon, instead of a rocket? If so then RL has plenty of fuel.

    JP Morgan to launch its own cryptocurrency

    Ok , I stand corrected; It is only useless “for now”, as @cryptoxrp claimed. Thx for the clarification.🥨

    JP Morgan to launch its own cryptocurrency

    Where? I live in the US, and XRP is worthless on the streets theoughout N. America, Central America, and South America. Can’t even buy a simple Ice cream cone. Perhaps in some small section of some small city in S. Korea? My guess is XRP is exchangeable for goods and services in .0000000025% (yes that means another pair of zeros) of the world’s retailers. So Yes, you can cherry pick and say “It’s not completely useless” But in my world I would disagree. (Of course it may also be a different story on the moon)

    Breaking: Another world-wide use-case for XRP!

    Obviously In your example it will not. But if you send your beer to Swift and I send my funds to Swift; problem solved, because then neither of us are ever forced to trust anyone else but Swift.

    Breaking: Another world-wide use-case for XRP!

    Pretty sure that will violate at least a couple of laws here in the US, not to mention violating the rule forbidding soliciting funds through this site. However your plan will help you understand the reason SWIFT exists, and why cross border exchange is so difficult. For instance: I will take 12 cases of the finest brew you sell, price is no object. First ship it to my drop location, and once I see the goods, I promise to pay you any price. (Include your wallet address in the shipment) Do you see any problem with my plan? If so, you now know why SWIFT exists, as the middle man. If you don’t see a problem, go ahead and make the shipment, and I am sure in a month or 2 you will figure it out. 😉

    I should have said “trusted” validators. I may be wrong, (a surprise to you, I’m sure:-) but when it comes to general consensus, & closing ledgers, RL still holds the majority say (or close to it) and continues to supply the only real UNL for new validators coming online. Can all of the RL validators literally go dark today? I know RL’s goal (and design) is full seperation from the mechanics of the system, but if a securities ruling or lawsuit judgement is based on centralization, does the network really qualify today? I do not know that answer. But after reading this thread, it seems important.

    Regarding the validators, it is not the method of consensus that my point was made to. I was speaking to the fact that it sounds like the whole issue of securities versus commodities is now focused on being classified as a decentralized vs centralized network. I stated this is not good for RL as long as they are running their validators, and control the UNL. My opinion being that if RL paid lobbyist for this type of ruling, they did themselves no favors.

    I do not want to start my own coin. I want a coin whose value is set by a free market. Yes I should have said “sole control at inception” obviously they are giving it out so they may not control it forever. It is this process that I disagree with. still dodging the validator issue? (Be careful, don’t trip over the mic on the floor)

    The total supply of oil is unknown, bad analogy.

    The obvious way to distribute XRP is the same way which you and I used to get ours: Open Market Sales. Let the market set the value, anything short is manipulation, and manipulation is the opposite of ”FAIR” I would rather see $.0001 per XRP with RL holding 0 XRP, versus the insider actions, that are only possible when you have sole control of the supply. I would certainly buy more if I felt that it couldn’t get any cheaper. You feel Wall St professionals feel differently? Controlling the supply of your asset to manitain pricing is what public companies do with their stock. XRP is not supposed to be a stock. Any opinion on the validator side of the issue?
