  1. How does the writer know that the 60 million movement is going to get dumped? The XRP moved from one CEX.IO (an exchange) mutisign wallet to another mutisign wallet owned by CEX.IO. https://bithomp.com/explorer/rE1sdh25BJQ3qFwngiTBwaq3zPGGYcrjp1 https://bithomp.com/explorer/r3nhmcVpaP29ughoVFhrWpZ9Bqjzji4sct
  2. Lets get this link out there. https://setup.xrpay.com/
  3. SBI has also joined in a venture with R3 to promote the adoption of Corda in Japan. But why they would want anything to do with POW projects is a mystery.
  4. Thanks for taking the time to translate. Looks like the swedes are waking up too, Safellos aim is to be the Coinbase of Europe: https://bithomp.com/explorer/rnGakV39V4M2Zbo6Na4TupwB9JXR4SRdKW
  5. The price spiked to 76-80 cents on september 21 2018. The daily volume reached 4 Billion from 5-600 million the days before. https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/historical-data/?start=20180919&end=20180924 Suzie from Esoteric trading solutions made a video on this subject back in december. Speculative, but interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-dx5qy9AXc The DTCC part begins at around 8:40 minutes.
  6. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/77939/cma-probes-earthport-takeover-by-visa Well, if the British authorities concerns are not confirmed, yes.
  7. Coinbase is about to release a VISA Debit card in the UK, with plans of expansion in other european countries soon. https://cointelegraph.com/news/coinbase-crypto-exchange-debuts-visa-card-for-uk-customers https://www.forbes.com/sites/billybambrough/2019/04/10/coinbase-and-visa-are-making-bitcoin-ethereum-ripples-xrp-and-litecoin-payments-a-reality/#69d768655943 https://blog.coinbase.com/spend-your-crypto-instantly-with-coinbase-card-4c840e59a8d8
  8. That should make the number of BitLicenses issued 19? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitLicense BTW: Sitting on the board of directors of Ripple the company.
  9. Currently 195 countries in the world. If we get 90 large exchanges (There were more than 500 exchanges in the world in april 2018) as xRapid certified in the next 5 years... Imagine the pressure on the supply.
  10. It's basically what TAS group is doing with Ripple in Europe? A Gateway that translates messages between different payment protocols? https://www.tasgroup.eu/solutions/payment-networks/ripple
  11. Brian Armstrong did an AMA a couple of days ago: https://cointelegraph.com/news/coinbase-ceo-names-three-things-crypto-needs-for-mass-adoption No reason not to explore xRapid integration. Guess we will see in the coming months.
  12. This is an absolutely brilliant presentation. It puts the concept into a real world practical frame. Richard Feynman level.
  13. https://techcrunch.com/2019/04/04/western-union-often-disrupted-by-startups-partners-a-startup-for-digital-push-in-the-philippines/ Good stuff, still need to be cautious about what software and network is involved though.
  14. From David Schwartz Quora AMA: The last sentence is a major hint at what is to be expected over the next years. The Triffin dilemma. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triffin_dilemma
  15. The regulatory uncertainties were suddenly completely ignored? If this is true, it is crazy. The existing remittance businesses just got the first warning shoot across the bow.
  16. Ripple just released a video of Brad Garlinghouse talking about this event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZpCa74M2vo https://www.inatba.org/ A lot of big names on that list.
  17. Bill Clinton was probably at Swell because he knows Gene Sperling very well, and wanted to do him a favour. Ripple the company itself has people of all political views represented, Ken Kurson is probably one of the most prominent to have been involved with the Republican higher-ups. We also know that the late Matthew Mellon, who was a big investor in XRP talked to president Donald Trump himself a week before his tragic death. He told Trump that he needed to embrace crypto to catch the milleniall vote if he wanted to serve a second term as president.
  18. Apple just launched a new payment initiative also with Mastercard and Goldman Sachs. It is heating up, and the big guys are entering the payment space for real. The Kodak moment is coming for the existing banking system. Ripple has been putting down the rails for this moment over the last 5 years to take market shares, now we wil see the marathon pick up speed. Slice the prices of cross border payments, or become irrelevant.
  19. Thank you. Yes, it would be interesting to know what would cause something like this in the metrics. Some sort of data must have been fed into the charts to give this result. The absence of data would be expected to cause a flatline right? These charts are made by Ripple the company, and I would like to think they use reliable models to read and interpret data when they make it public like that. Also that they would take it offline with a message before maintenance/tests. They have done that before.
  20. https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/metrics Anyne have any idea of what i going on with the Metrics today? The number of of payments went through the roof, the ledger closing interval time went down to 1,16 seconds and the number of ledgers also went through the roof. Just a bug/maintenance?
  21. Link to the Twitter thread. Leonidas is asking wether they are actually talking about xCurrent for messaging or somehow use the digital asset XRP. Awaiting answer. Remember, this is a customer help twitter account.
  22. Brad Garlinghouse said in the latest AMA from december 2018 that one should watch the volumes on the exchanges that are xRapid certified partners. (10 minutes in)
  23. If the comma is used in the correct british way, that is 15 thousand USD. If you work for a british corporation doing business with the Philipines or Mexico, your boss will probably give you a raise if you bring this up to him/her.
