    BLPinfinity reacted to TinyRick in 589 EOY could actually be possible.   
    I find it hard to believe that people find it hard to believe that $589 is possible.
    From January 2017 to January 2018 XRP went up like over 50,000%....
    The same jump this year could put it at well over $300, the biggest difference is that we'll finally have real world utility. So it's more than possible it will happen.
    Swift doesn't want to become some forgotten part of financial history. They really have no choice but to join up with Ripple.

    Exactly. What people are not seeing is that ripple have the deck stacked no matter which way people go. 
    XRP gets used regardless because if the ILP.
    Temenos have 3000 banking clients and are integrated and licensing/whiteboxing ripple solutions to plug in for their customers.
    SAP are doing the same thing for their some 300,000 business customers world wide with Xvia which will use XRP for settlement when it goes live.
    SWIFT know they are screwed so they either upgrade internally to plug into the ILP and upgrade their own messaging system (GPI, Swiftnet) not maintained their customer base or they go away.
    Ripple can also work directly with banks and businesses.
    What's coming if you are patient will blow your mind. It will be incremental as liquidity builds but it won't take long.

    Swift GPI is just a messaging system like xcurrent. It makes it bidirectional and fees mostly transparent.
    The SWIFT upgrade ISO20022 which all banks must do by November 18 is making them compatible with the ILP as ISO20022 is one of the 3 main protocols it uses for comms.
    SWIFT Temenos and SAP are all aligning to be connected into the ILP and in some cases the ripple suite directly.
    The above news is all positive IMO.
    I am very certain we will see swift payments settled instantly with the use of the ILP and this XRP at some stage.

    BLPinfinity reacted to xrbear in Mentalist take on the Goldman Sachs, Ripple and Blockchain Conference video   
    Excellent breakdown.
     
    I may also add that throughout the panel, Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) seems to pay little attention to Brian Steele (MD Goldman)'s answers. Danny with his relaxed posture, seems to almost ignore Brian, and appears to be more intent in staring into the crowd, at the floor, etc..
     
    This indicates slight boredom on Danny's behalf. The remnants of "I've heard all this before," "Brian will say nothing new," and "the waiting game" cannot be ignored. For a high level Ripple executive to pay this little attention to one of the most powerful Bank's executives illustrates that there is no business to won here. Shouldn't Danny be hanging on every word, trying to sell the benefits of Ripple to him?
     
    The sale has already been complete. We are in the integration phase. These PR displays are slowing boiling the pot.

    I was asked to review this video to see if there were any subtle undertones that would indicate Goldman Sachs interest in XRP.
    These are my findings... (Law and Order Chime - "Dong - Dong")
     
    Jitin Jain (Wharton MBA '18), seated on the far left, moderates a discussion between, from left to right, Andrew Keys (Co-Founder Consensys Capital), Brian Steele (MD Goldman), Griffin Anderson (Founder Balanc3@ConsenSys), and Danny Aranda (MD Ripple).
     
    7:06 Andrew Keys (Co-Founder Consensys Capital) says – “what this will do from a macro perspective, in my opinion, is going to create a thawing of liquidity unlike anything planet earth has ever seen”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) then raises both eyebrows, tucks in his mouth and shakes his head in stern acknowledgment.
    ***Indicating the thought - “these people have no idea what’s coming”***
     
    9:16 Jitin Jain (Wharton MBA '18) asks Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) - “what kind of competitive risk is there or value-add you can put to banks let’s say, Swift...”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) shakes his head in acknowledgment when the word “Swift” is mentioned. More so again when it’s mentioned a second time.
    *** Brian clearly understands that the paradigm of using Swift is about to change.***
     
    13:37 Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) says – “hey you need new infrastructure because customer demands are changing.”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) shakes his head in acknowledgment.
     
    19:59 Jitin Jain (Wharton MBA '18) asks – “we have seen different strategies; some have invested in blockchain startups companies. Others have tied up with R3, Ripple, and other blockchain based companies.  How do you see investment in blockchain from incumbents’ point of view?”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) responds – “…we’re not a member of R3, we’re not a member of the hyper ledger, we’re not a member of you know enterprising ethereum alliance…”
    ***This is odd, as Brian mentions these extra entities that weren’t even asked. But Ripple, which was just mentioned to him, should have still been fresh in his memory to recall but he intentionally left it out. A clear deflection.***
     
    22:56 Brian Steele (MD Goldman) states – “...it’s bringing the industry together”
    ***His body language is indicating a strong conviction. A sign that he and his superiors at least want that.***
     
    29:17 Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) says – “…we invented a protocol called inter ledger”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) shakes his head comfortably.
    ***Indicating he’s familiar with and at ease with the inter ledger.***
     
    31:03 Griffin Anderson (Founder Balanc3@ConsenSys) askes – “How many people own digital currencies right now?”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) openly raises his hand.
    ***If I’m not mistaken, not too long ago Goldman Sachs forbid its employees from messing with Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies altogether. Now they are openly admitting they own it. A clear sign of Goldman's change in their ideology and vision.***
     
    40:27 Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) says – “it’s going to come from innovation, from new products, like new services you can offer…”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) shakes his head in stern acknowledgment.
     
    44:11 Brian Steele (MD Goldman) says – “if you’re able to settle the asset in a real-time environment and you’re able to move money in very much of a real-time fashion…”
    Jitin Jain (Wharton MBA '18) then asks Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) to directly follow up.
    ***I have no idea if this was a tell but it certainly was coincidental.  He asks Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) to follow up directly after Brian Steele (MD Goldman) states – “move money in very much of a real-time”.***
     
    52:12 This is the most revealing of them all.
    Someone in the audience asks – “I’d like to repeat the earlier question about XRP but direct it at Brian specifically. It’s clear that Ripple and other blockchains are useful for banks but what about these so-called bridge currencies and there’s this unclear whether banks like Goldman are actually going to use this part of their treasury. Is it, can you give a clear answer at this point?”
    Brian Steele (MD Goldman) responds – “yeah… I mean, unfortunately… it’s ahh – we’re not in a position at this point to say…”
    ***He instantly becomes nervous. He’s stuttering, His feet begin tapping vigorously – he’s lying (at least his body believes he is).
    And then to ease the obvious tension Danny Aranda (MD Ripple) stutters in. (You always swoop in to save your wingman)***
     
    Also, Goldman Sachs new CEO, David Soloman, is openly for cryptocurrencies. A Wikipedia search of him indicates he’s also a part-time EDM DJ. Which would indicate his personality is one of a trendsetter and a forward thinker. One who’s not afraid to think outside the box.
     
    Conclusion: Goldman Sachs is very interested in Ripple (XRP) – VERY!
     
    Some may or may not agree with this assessment but I welcome an open discussion about it.

    SWIFT completes landmark DLT PoC
    • PoC successfully delivers business functionalities
    • DLT instance meets governance, security and data privacy requirements
    • ISO 20022 data model and UETR pivotal to improving Nostro processes
    • DLT a strategic priority for SWIFT
    Read the news about SWIFT's DLT proof of concept.
    Brussels, 8 March 2018 – SWIFT publishes today the final results from its DLT proof of concept for Nostro reconciliation, one of the largest and most ambitious proofs of concepts run with the emergent technology.
    With 34 participating banks each with their own node deployed in the SWIFT DLT sandbox, the initiative was one of the most extensive blockchain proofs of concept powered by Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 executed in the industry so far, both in terms of participant engagement and in terms of the scale of the infrastructure deployed.
    With the PoC SWIFT set out to work with the technology in a “many-to-many” setting addressing a real business issue, and draw lessons for larger scale implementations of the technology in the bank-to-bank payment area. The PoC sought to assess whether DLT, combined with SWIFT assets, would meet industry-level governance, security and data privacy requirements, whether DLT could bring concrete benefits over other architectures, and to check DLT’s current level of maturity to serve as a production-grade application within a mission-critical global infrastructure.
    Based on the business and technical requirements validated by the participating banks, SWIFT developed a DLT solution through which Nostro Account owners and their servicers could share a private confidential ledger recording transactions related to their Nostro accounts. The solution leverages ISO 20022 standards [*] and gpiinnovations [*] – including the unique end-to-end transaction reference (UETR) – and integrates intraday liquidity standards.
    The PoC showed that DLT could deliver the business functionalities and data richness required to support automated real-time liquidity monitoring and reconciliation. It enabled real-time event handling, transaction status updates, full audit trails, visibility of expected and available balances, real-time simplified account entries confirmation, the identification of pending entries and potential related issues, and generated the data required to support regulatory reporting.
    The PoC also demonstrated the significant progress DLT has made with regards to data confidentiality, governance, security, and identification frameworks, evidencing that the emergent technology, combined with SWIFT assets, provides the necessary foundation for financial multi-bank applications.
    “The PoC went extremely well, proving the fantastic progress that has been made with DLT and the Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 in particular”, said Damien Vanderveken, Head of Research and Development at SWIFT. “The DLT sandbox enabled us to control access, to define and enforce user privileges, to physically segregate confidential data and store it only with the relevant parties while supporting a strong identity framework by linking all participants to their BIC, and having all keys signed by a SWIFT certification authority”.
    While successfully meeting all the business requirements set out, the PoC evidenced the considerable pre-requisites for industry adoption of such a solution – for instance, all account servicers would first need to migrate from batch to real-time liquidity reporting and processing, and back office applications would need to be upgraded to feed the platform with real-time updates.
    “Although the PoC demonstrated DLT could improve Nostro liquidity management and reconciliation processes, it also revealed that the pre-requisites will have to be met before banks can enjoy the full benefits of switching to a DLT process”, added Vanderveken.
    "To facilitate improvements in the Nostro process, SWIFT will continue helping its community migrate towards real-time liquidity reporting and processing through SWIFT gpi, and establish a roll-out plan for the community-wide adoption of the UETR. Similarly, as the PoC underscored, the ISO 20022 data model is a pre-requisite to deliver the required structure and data richness to support real-time liquidity monitoring and reconciliation. SWIFT will also initiate an ISO 20022 consultation with its community to assess a timeline and a migration approach towards ISO 20022 as a potential means to reduce integration costs, and will continue to actively promote the re-use of ISO 20022 in the DLT context."
    You are taking things out of context and misconstruing them intentionally. 
    Swft tried there own DLT project and it failed as they publically admitted.
    Yes the collaborated on hypledger fabric as did ripple, r3, W3c and various others.
    It all connects to the ILP as the base protocol that runs the settlement later of the internet of value.
