  1. Here's a rambler for ya' ... Well, I'm coming to understand that I'm going to have to track several things that I didn't before. One is obviously with regards to exposure to IL.( I have zero idea what I put in nor at what prices :-S) The other is delegation rewards. I think for now, I'll be pulling my WSGB out of Flare Finance on Wednesdays, and putting it back in on Friday morning. At least until I can rememeber/learn/find the exact time FTSO delegations are marked on Thursdays ... it is Thursdays, right? This simple chart (using today's numbers) ranks for me the highest rate of SFIN return per unit. Granted with the pairs (LP), it's actually per multiple units, ... and that all units aren't value equivalent .... but the disparity is so great that it seems a no brainer to be able to roughly guesstimate when they are to your advantage and when they're not. In the end, the math is rigged in every way to get you to separate from your SGB or WSGB for a FF token. For example: trading your WSGB for CAND at today's price earns 3 to 4 times higher SFIN return for staking CAND then it would for simply staking WSGB. The two I've focused on is 1.) SFIN to SFIN (obviously) followed by 3.) EXFI/CAND to SFIN .... I traded just enough SGB to get just enough CAND to pair with the EXFI was I given. No intention on buying any EXFI. Putting SFIN in 2.) is seems inefficient so long as 1.) is an option. The rest I keep in WSGB so I can more easily move it about and potentially deploy in other future Songbird projects. So far, I've managed to gain a whopping .0161 SFIN :-S Somebody STOP me! (-Jim Carry, The Mask)
  2. Insightful thots, all @Ripley i know SBI was an earlier round. Two b4 if my memory is good.
  3. Lot of loose pronouns bouncing about ... So, @Ripley, ur saying that Ripple returned Tetragon's initial investment from 2019 at 150% just for good will? That was allegedly $175M funding from Tetragon ... So Ripple just gave T an extra $87M? How sweet of Ripple :-)
  4. In my experience, a company buys its own shares because their analysis shows that to be the most profitable return for their money given all of the other investment opportunities in different company's stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, etc. Like @NMNR said, extremely bullish. The message between the lines is: Dear SEC, Hold my beer, the rest of the world is calling. Regards, Ripple
  5. This is definitely an usual move by Ripple ... for any company, let alone a company that isn't publicly traded, and something I've never heard of for a 'startup' ... “Even after doing this repurchase, we have over a billion dollars in cash." Garlinhouse said. According to this report, Ripple secured funding at a $10B valuation in 2019, and has bought back at a $15B valuation. The 50% gain and buyback likely soothed any bad blood from Tetragon's (relatively) recent court actions. Very interesting. On a side note, it's good to know they can keep up the good fight with the SEC.
  6. Interesting timing for this: “Biden Preparing Executive Order on Cryptocurrencies” Apparently it will be in Feb. With minimal political banter, what do you think Biden’s order will address?
  7. Solana Network Suffers Yet Another Network Outage: DeFi Users Pay the Price Ouch! I had a bunch of SOL, but dropped them at about $165 during their first outage last fall. Though the outage was a big factor, I didn't care for their system of measuring network performance. On the good side, this experience should only make their network stronger. On the other hand, they should have sorted this out long ago.
  8. On December 24, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. UTC, did you ... A. Hold SOLO coin in your XRPL account? and/or B. Hold XRP in your XRPL account with a trustline extended to SOLO? ... If not A. or B., then you will not receive any.
  9. FWIW I now have all of the XRP that Sologenics stated they would send me.
  10. I have several accounts. Some have been properly credited with SOLO coins, and some have not (yet). Like @RussianStandards said: chill ... it'll happen.
  11. Another one rides the bus -Weird Al https://u.today/moroccos-largest-bank-joins-ripplenet
  12. Can someone please help me load my rocket ship into the back of this rickshaw? Thanks :-) (nope ... haven't played with it. To be honest with you, I'd be more tempted to use bXRP in Kava)
  13. I don’t see how ANY of the docs are protected if ‘it’s always been clear’ that XRP is a security. that’s the exact same double talk from the SEC that Hinman’s speech was his opinion and yet still protected. boooo!
  14. My 2 cents: If an important, vaccinated actor in this theater of the absurd got break-through Covid, and they need time to convalesce, then I wish them a prompt recovery (i.e. Judges Torres/Netburn, attorneys on either side, witnesses, etc) Any others are worthy candidates to be "accidentally tripped or headbutted" @RipMcGillicuddy ..
  15. According to Eleanor Terrett, that's what is in the works. Due to Omicron. ... You know, worst case (time) scenario ... i.e. a jury trial ... this could stretch to Sept/Oct now. ...and sadly, I remember us all saying that last year about last Sept/Oct.
  16. How many token contract addresses should I be receiving EXFI from ... and why? Cuz I'm getting EXFI into my different SGB accounts from different contract addresses. Are there different issuances based on whether the SGB was wrapped at the time? ... Or have things gone awry?
  17. @Valhalla_Guy Neither this thread nor this forum is the appropriate place for political diatribes. Take it somewhere else.
  18. 1. Complaints dismissed against Garlinghouse and Larsen, as scienter is an impossible standard for the SEC to meet. 2. Complaint against Ripple's later sales (2014-present) will be excluded due to Fair Notice. 3. Ripple will be liable for early sales (2011-2014), however the majority (90%+) of these XRP sales will be excluded because they were conducted outside of the U.S. 4. Nominal fine against Ripple, and a requirement restricting Ripple's future sales to accredited investors. ... Notably, no explicit declaration that "XRP is/isn't a security" ... ...but a potential for Judge Torres to admonish the SEC for a series of inconsistencies, hypocrisies, and other such demonstrations of 'bad sportsmanship' ... ... Then, the SEC appeals. ... Appeal denied.
  19. @tulo Thanks for the feedback. I certainly wouldn't even pretend to know about the under-the-hood operations of Solana. But it is clear that Solana's TPS metric isn't measuring the same phenomena as it is for most other distributed ledger projects. That doesn't make Solana good, nor bad, of course. It just disappointed me that Solana made my easy-to-compare metric a much messier matter. Thanks again ... I look forward to taking a deeper dive into them after I get my head around a few other projects first.
  20. @tulo My understanding ... and, it may be wrong, ... is that Solana is designed such that the computations of the validating operations are included with the actual transactions. So their TPS reports (Office Space, anyone?) are not an actual reflection of how many from-me-to-you transactions occurred or are capable of occurring. This was a significant factor in their outage a month or two back. https://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2021/10/181570-what-to-learn-from-solanas-scalability-glitch/
  21. I was disappointed in how Solana tabulates TPS, misleading people with their Apple-to-Oranges comparison. More than anything I'm disappointed in the dumb money. I knew it was out there, but didn't expect this much for this long. The majority of people in this space now don't know or understand anything about the technology, and thus are completely willing to accept the wildly unacceptable (like Bitcoin's speed, or Ethereum transaction fees, etc.). ... In other words, I'm not disappointed that a blade of grass isn't a tree. I'm disappointed to be surrounded by so many people who think it is.
  22. Circumspection is a good thing. For example ... even tho I asked them directly via live Twitter call yesterday, I'm still not getting my head around Coreum network fees decreasing with higher transaction volumes. Just having a fixed rate per block doesn't preclude each block being filled with spam.
  23. @JASCoderThey stated that they started working on Coreum about 1.5 years ago. I know the larger Sologenic project is about double that. As evidenced by their videos, apps, websites, etc. someone has been investing a LOT of money into them. If you uncover more about their funding, please share ...
