  1. Do I understand it correct that it basically is a solution to maintain a trading spread for MMs that let them cash in for each passing payment?
  2. "Francais" usually speak French ;-)
  3. forget it.... scammers on their streets address you'll find this one...
  4. It all depends what direction one wanna go. One of the most important services for remittance in developing markets is the last mile. And I guess MG still has a strong position here. Imagine all those available last miles to become connected to for instance all the Mojaloop based mobile money services that are emerging all over Africa... The last mile always is the most critical one. I've friends in Africa and while I've no problems getting bitstamp/gatehub.EUR or XRP over there, the problem still is: how do my African friends get them retracted in local currency? That's a huge market opportunity and MG IS operating on that market..... Not saying Ripple should buy them (tbh that's not their core business), but I'm sure that, with cleverly building around xRapid (or @BobWay 's new "tool"?) MG might become revamped to a premium, fast & cheap service with the "last mile service" to avoid (expensive) "branches" but dropping straight into mobile money accounts....
  5. Why would big FI's wanna get funds from Xpring?
  6. Hi Bob. Thanks for bringing lots of input and insights. While I suppose many will be more like personal views on a future for XRP, there sure will be a few based on insight and knowledge that you have and we as outsiders don't. This brings me to another inside person you may know very well and who was leaning to a much more negative view on XRP. I'm talking about Vinnie Falco. By the end of his career @Ripple he even was extreme bearisch on XRP and sold all his holding before that famous run from 0.006 to 0.2 and later even to 3. When someone is that negative he must have had a reason for that. Any idea from your side? Not to rant against him, because he seemed very talented and smart, but more like to understand his and yours view and how they differ. TIA

    Hi! I'm Bob

    You mean you and many others here really want to, but still do not know where its price is going? And that frustrates you? Let the talk go about tech, payments, networking, inclusion, interoperability and business please My impression is that those smart guys from Ripple know EXACTLY what their plans are with XRP Love this topic, please dont clutter it with wealth expectations

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Make sure you’ve one book to bring all price and valuation discussions (speculations) together.... just to prevent them to clutter the other books.... those forecasts, deep chart analysis, dreams, hopes, panics, moonwalks.... will keep on coming like a diarree. Better be prepared[emoji57]

    Hi! I'm Bob

    BTW. Maybe you should come to Twitter after all to enjoy the xrpcommunity over there and the fun interaction using www.xrptipbot.com

    Hi! I'm Bob

    Bob. You're on Twitter so it seems https://twitter.com/bob_way .... Maybe you can tweet a link to this topic ? https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/30588-hi-im-bob/
  11. Just curious. Do you arrive with AUD on Bitstamp/Gatehub or is it FlashFX that converts to XRP? In case of the latter they might be an interesting xRapid partner
  12. Think “commercial” is important here
  13. Why not a small instead of an XXL?[emoji57]
  14. Yep. Surfed the whole web and nowhere to find a link or a reference. GOOG is a public funded company so they must report....
  15. Jesse Lund predicts a BTC valuation to go as high as $ 1M [emoji849] Those IBM boys live in their own dream, riding in a lambo making massive clouds of dust somewhere on the moon
  16. Indeed but Im affraid it will not happen anytime soon. At least they could have started with a majority of their holdings, like 35B, to hand over to the IMF. No more talk about private centralised ownership control while they still could hold a (smaller) war chest...
  17. Spot on! What JP wants to do is even more centralisation to one single private bank. Will not work... So arrogant...
  18. Heading from a federal reserve to a global reserve in the hands of one single bank? Sounds riduculous arrogant but.... isn’t Ripple not dreaming along the same line by holding back 60% of their global reserve?
  19. Arrogance is often the beginning of the end
  20. Not sure if it's a beginning of their end, but there is something to say for it. I even think that it is not Ripple or xCurrent/xRapid to be the biggest threat. The one they should fear most of all is Interledger. Actually SWIFT is no more than a messaging system for payments. Just like there were in the past a multiplicity of messages and communication solutions, non-standards and standardized, for data (ATM, RSxxx, ...) . But at the end, they all have come together into a limited set of internet protocols and standards. I see the same going to happen with legacy financial messaging standards. They will all go the path as those like RS232 and ATM. Ripple has the advantage to have opted for (and even originated it) and to build around a new and modern (internet-style) base layer standard that now is best placed to win the battle: ILP In the mean time, SBI/R3 made a very interesting move by linking the old legacy SWIFT messaging with the new rails (Corda and Corda Settler) what will make it a LOT more smoother, cheaper and acceptable for banks to go for the transition. And it opens an opportunity for XRP as well.
