  1. Got you. For me XRP were an investment caused by curiosity, believe and hope. Curiosity for this amazing tech (I'm an engineer myself, always interested in emerging and new developments). Believe in the team and the plan by Ripple the company. And hope for the developing regions as I lost my heart to Africa and it is my hope that some day a global financial level play field may unlock the real potential of that continent were I've some very good friends living. Those 3 "drives" made me go for a deep investment in XRP during the very early days - some XRP by the "Computing for Good" program and the bulk by selling my whole investment-portfolio to buy me a big stake into XRP... as my gut feeling told me that there was much more in this for the longer term then I could expect from the stock market. And my guts (crystal balls?) proved me right. I sold 40% with a profit range of around 20000% (from 0.005 average to 1 average) .... The other 60% are partly (60%) kept in a hardware wallet and partly (40%) stolen by the Gatehub hackers and I hope to recover those some other day (the thieves are in a French prison waiting for legal proceedings) Still figuring out what and how to handle the rest of my XRP holdings... and even hope to pick up some useful ideas here (not the sort of HODL, MOON, LAMBO, ....)
  2. Didnt that appreciation came in 2017?

  4. You're right, but first things first and that's legal proceedings to force the thiefs, not just to refund, but also to pay for possible psychological damage and costs related to the theft. Its not because for me a simple XRP refund is enough that others may think different because they might have suffered more or might indeed have wanted to sell their XRP short after the theft at a higher price compared with the present.

  5. As far as I know refund will only come from recovering. When thats not sufficient (guess it will never be enough), Ive no idea who can/will do the rest... Guess its up to the legal system to decide/force responsibles to take from their means for complete refunding
  6. Still in progress. The case might have seen some delay caused by Covid-19. Also there seem to be some discussions going if refunding claims should be calculate in the ($) value of XRP by the moment of the hack, what' a lot more than the value of today. OTOH, XRP isn't real money and stolen assets do not have to be repaid with money, rather by just giving back the asset I guess. Still leaves the possibility of claims to other losses and costs caused by the hack... For my part, I would be very happy to just get my XRP back as I was planning to hold them for an extended time...

  8. Guess what ? One can even buy them with fiat
  9. Yep, that is like buying a newspaper and not reading in it.... Verzonden vanaf mijn iPhone met Tapatalk
  10. AFAIK, and with the fixed fee subscription like it is now, the spending time for content readers is unlimited while content publishers are getting payed per view

  12. Got you, but its about building a consumer base for new sources of content. Newspaper readers often are already subscribers and paying news consumers...
  13. Another idea perhaps: Coil going for a cooperation with newspapers? Most newspapers all over the globe today do have both electronic and paper subscription where the latter in many case comes with both. It could be a very useful model to add a basic coil service to that subscription AND to open the content of this and other newspaper/media companies. This way I for instance could read once in a while a premium article in the Washington Post or New York Times with just that limited Coil value included in my local newspaper subscription. A win for me, but also for my local newspaper giving more value to their product and having an extra way to sell their content (per view).... AND for those papers like WP and NYT with a more global interest who can add a lot of payed views this way from all over the globe ....
  14. He could have started with a subscription account with monthly (auto or non-auto) paying by invoice. Not paying? Streaming stops... New user? First month as a try... if you pay you can go on using the service. Gives it an easy "try it out" ramping up for the curious...AND an exact idea of your possible streaming costs
