  1. This is a messaging service, it does not provide liquidity. It does not move money. It messages banks to remove a number from one account and add numbers in another account. It happens quickly, yes, but it is still just a messaging service.
  2. Wow. banks can now send encrypted messages to each other in 300 millisecond over a network. How revolutionary. I have been doing this in my job since 1998.
  3. Update from Celsius Network in the weekly AMA with Alex Mashinsky on Friday august 28. They are working on supporting the utility fork because of massive demand from the XRP community. 53 minute and 23 seconds in. https://youtu.be/qRrqJbSc9QQ?t=3203
  4. Very curious about the anonymous partnership SBI announced in the slides regarding the first Japanese cypto fund. 50% XRP, 30 % BTC and 20% ETH. Should probably be some news about that coming up in the next few weeks. Page 114. https://www.sbigroup.co.jp/english/investors/disclosure/presentation/pdf/200626presentations.pdf
  5. People need to calm down about these lawsuits. Coinbase has 30-50 ongoing lawsuits against them at any given time. Crypto Eri made the point in a video today that the Australian company had not renewed its trademark claim when they should have back in 2018. They have a grace period of 6 months after it runs out, and that was a long time ago. Someone suddenly noticed that Ripple had applied for the Trademark in the US, and now they have to sue because someone f*ed up. Trademark from 2016, lapsed 17 may 2018: https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/view/1804334?q=payid
  6. The trademark is still under examination by the US patent and tademark office. https://uspto.report/TM/90006723
  7. Alex Mashinsky of Celsius network has weekly AMAs every Friday. This week he commented on XRP, the massive growth of XRP moving to the platform and the future utility fork that Flare is planning. He also explained Flare the way he saw it, and its potential. His comments began at arround the 22 minutes 45 second mark. https://youtu.be/1wOZKKkhKiU?t=1378
  8. The XRP community could have a "not your keys, not your cryoto" day and move their XRP to wallets on the ledger before the snapshot. The traffic would be enormous, and the resiilience, speed and tougnhes of the XRP-Ledger would be shown.
  9. The Youtube Givaway XRP scams are back in full force. At least 5 instances popping up and reported in my list this weekend. Report them if you see them in your playlist. It is surreal to see Youtube be this incompetent.
  10. Jacob Frenkel stepped down as chairman of JP Morgan last year to lead the G30 board. https://group30.org/members/bio_current/frenkel Interesting that this comes out a year after the the Swiss central bank conference in May 2019 where Brad garlinghouse presented Ripples vision to alle the Central bankers.
  11. Counselor to the US Department of Treasury Craig Phillips at DC Blockchain summit 2019. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lF2_jVa0xw Giancarlo spoke right after him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LNWOTZEOfI Ripple has been working the lawmakers for years. It is basically a script playing out now.
  12. Would be great if it was true, but the only news I can find are about another filing of a document about a motion to dismiss from Ripples legal team. August 26 seems to be the next date of interest.
  13. Tether pump from Binance seems to be the culprit this time. I can't get rid of the confusion around Tether. They simply printed Billions of Tether one night and then suddeny had a marketcap that pushed XRP down. Tether is also an ERC20 token, basically a waterpump running on a prototype of a steamengine ready to burst.
  14. BitGo has been creating custody wallets on the XRP-ledger for 3 years, they are closing in on generating 31 000 wallets. https://bithomp.com/explorer/rD4G6gtD2KwHqsRf7pcyA8r1neUzXT61ix Someone knew what was coming, Goldman Sachs invested in BitGo back in 2018. https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/32809/goldman-sachs-invests-in-bitgo
