  1. The bombs are dropping, the entire crypto/Fintech community is being attacked and held hostage by bureacrats, who probably have connections to banks. The gloating did not last long for the xrp "haters" out there now, did it. The old banks are still here, and they are not giving inn.
  2. Just like most journalists, regulators seem to get their information from social media. What a clown show.
  3. Brad Garlinghouse donated to Kamala Harris primary campaign and Bidens presidential campaign. Fairly small sums. https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/individual-contributions/?contributor_name=Garlinghouse&contributor_employer=ripple But this could just be politics again.
  4. Will be interesting to see how much Ripple is buying back in the next quarterly report.
  5. This is how it is supposed to be right? A lot of academic papers were released "attacking" the TCP/IP protocol back in the day. The fact that universities all over the world take part in this discussion is an amazing achievement on behalf of the team behind the XRP-ledger. Direct Current vs. Alternating Current, they both have use cases and they both have drawbacks. The failsafes built over the last century in that field are astonishing. I can imagine a lot of moustaches caught fire back in the day both because of technical mistakes and boiling anger related to those discussions.
  6. Here we go, now all the big ones are inn. Congrats to Hugo and the team!
  7. A lot of these movements are exchanges moving funds between their own wallets and between exchanges. Whalealerts and other services wil not always catch this calling it unknown wallet. Here is an example: Bybit and Binance, only Bybit is registered by Whalealerts and displayed on Twitter. https://whale-alert.io/transaction/ripple/0ECDBAD54179D8F70B908C9088D27B5B9A2A4AFE269D5F7737124556C901CE1F Here is one between two Coinbase owned wallets, meaning movements within Coinbase organizing their funds:
  8. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201117005056/en/Forte-and-Industry-Pioneers-Partner-to-Reimagine-the-Economics-of-Games This is actually really cool. Deserves a lot more attention.
  9. Things are about to heat up. Bidens security briefings will be filled with concerns like these: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-spy-chief-seeks-sec-scrutiny-of-chinese-dominance-in-cryptocurrency
  10. I can not belive US regulators and their silence. This is basically Cisco telling US regulators they would be moving overseas back in 1989.
  11. They do weekly AMAs, I think they might have talked about customers being able to add the name of recipients of the funds if the owner passes away. They are very helpful wth questions, and are also looking for input from users.
  12. Celsius Network confirmed yesterday that they will support the Flare utility fork also. https://youtu.be/wVYzS_0qD9E?t=2335
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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 New trademark filing applied in Australia by NPP 24 july 2020: https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/view/2106303?q=payid Ripples filing in the US is from 17 june 2020. https://uspto.report/TM/90006723
  18. The trademark is still under examination by the US patent and tademark office. https://uspto.report/TM/90006723
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
