  1. This is how the TransferWise model works for “international transfers” they don’t actually move any assets physically across borders at all. @BobWay was anyone from Ripple involved in the inception of TransferWise and took that initial thinking with them?
  2. All you ‘Muricans will no doubt find this a bit cheesy, but having only just stumbled across FB he has me in fits every time. Few of these on YouTube...
  3. "I'm still here since 6/24/2018" been here since mid 2017 actually. By the time I got around to posting on the last countdown - thread had been closed the day before! XRP and Ripple - compelling to watch, absolute privilege to take part.
  4. June 11th, June 14th - is this part of the picture? Breaking news as of 15 minutes ago here in the UK... http://news.sky.com/story/new-york-sues-donald-trump-foundation-for-persistent-illegal-conduct-11404832 sorry if this is old news - just saw it and thought i’d post it whilst it was hot. Didn’t check back in this thread as I usually do.
  5. I’ve never really believed in this stuff - but then look at Bitstamp for today - nice green candle around that time. OK, so, she was an hour out..... Where’s Mulder and Scully when we need them?
  6. This is so true. I do a lot of work in India and they are leaving the world behind with regards to digitisation in the Payments space. There was over circa 120 different digital wallet players in India - I believe there will be something of a rout now that the government has changed the rules and all wallets need to be fully KYC’d, only the big boys will remain. By PayTM for instance now has over 400m registered users and you can use it to pay pretty much anywhere. for those folks who’s world view is primarily the US, UK or EU (I’m UK based) it’s truly another world out there in developing markets. Some of these places can barely build a road, protect their citizens from each other or provide clean drinking water for half the population. But the stuff that’s going on in the digital payments space is unreal. The opportunities for crypto - and in particular XRP with its speed and low cost - haven’t even begun to reveal themselves ..... yet!
  7. It’s about time we saw this info graphic again. Where you been at, DD? Good to see you.
  8. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/revenue-and-customs-brief-9-2014-bitcoin-and-other-cryptocurrencies This, to my knowledge, is the “latest” official guidance from HMRC on cryptocurrencies. For the moment the government are still of the opinion that existing laws/regulation can be applied. I for one have included a 20% CGT provision in all of my “Jesus, if XRP gets to $X then i’ll walk away with £Y” scenarios (don’t laugh, you all do it too ?). However I have NOT included any trading activity, selling high and buying low, as my losses were greater Than my gains he four times I tried to do it, plus I’m not sure we’ll get there here in the U.K. (and how is that even possible without the exchanges all handing over data). I fully expect to pay any and all taxes when I do cashout.
  9. Elbow said it best - “The leaders of the free world are just little boys throwing stones”
  10. Otis has the right idea! Methinks I spy a Christopher Ward Malvern C3 Chrono, unless i’m very much mistaken?
  11. Seriously, the OP of this comment will become legend in the months to come. It’s just the best. I’m desperate to use it in a work context with some of my colleagues - just haven’t had the right opportunity to drop it yet.....
