  1. 99,95% sure it's trade volume only
  2. His sales percentage is not tied to payment volume. It's the trade volume that matters in this regard
  3. But to a degree that's a fact. No one is asking for an echo chamber. Personally, when I speculate with XRP, I don't pretend to be a stock owner of an established company. If I were as annoyed and pissed off over what ripple is doing, as some of the people who have posted rage-induced posts here, I'd sell all the XRPs and move on with my life. EDIT: To elaborate: We're blind people and someone with clear sight is driving the car we're in(We are not stock owners so basically we don't get to know much about what's going on). The driver cannot tell us much due to different reasons, nor is required to tell us. We can speculate over things, use the other senses to get some understanding of where we are, or tell the driver to let us off. It gets complicated if we want to start giving the driver all kinds of instructions or criticize the driving and direction, and most of us will be out of our depth if we're doing so. We know very little and therefore it will be silly to draw too many conclusions to the positive or negative direction.
  4. Increased the font size and changed the color to red, just to make the point a bit clearer and more visible.
  5. And how do we know what FIs are going to do with their XRP?
  6. butterknives aren't designed to be weapons, but some people still attack others using them. Have they officially been designed to be used as a weapon though?
  7. 100% XRP, long-term speculative investment. The only crypto related asset, aside from XRP, that I've seriously considered to buy as a long term speculative investment is FCT. ETH has a great team, but smart contracts and the platforms hosting them in general seem to be a bit of a question mark IMO. But the ETH team still is great, which is very important. Sia and storj seem fairly interesting, but right now they aren't interesting enough. The bullish crypto buzz reminds me of the dotcom times. Short-term profits and day-to-day trade are irrelevant to me as I have no time to gamble.
  8. I find it encouraging to see FIs actually pay nearly current rate price for XRP, as it doesn't have liquidity nor volume yet
  9. This logic does not apply to XRP. I'm fairly certain that XRP will not rise (long-term) unless there's a significant increase in liquidity and volume. I was kidding to point out how ridiculously undervalued and underhyped XRP is compared to most other cryptos.
  10. On a more serious note: Good thing to remember is that the 43 Japanese banks are planning to use ripple only for nationwide payments when they begin. The potential cross-border payments are scheduled to begin later in 2017 AFAIK, and that is if things go well. Expect $0.005-.006 and you'll not be too disappointed, while still having room for being positively surprised.
  11. If the world's top megabanks and the institutional market makers were to actually use XRP as a liquidity tool, then I'm pretty sure we'd touch $.0075. Will take much more than that for XRP to break that impenetrable 1 cent barrier
  12. Uniledger to me would sound cool. Maybe if RCL gains enough traction as a settlement network, it could one day become "Global Consensus Ledger". XRP -> XLP, to act as a ledger payment unit hosted by Global Consensus Ledger. To me that would be pretty badass. I don't mind the current ripple related names though.
  13. [speculation, guesses & blowing stuff out of my you-know-what] It will be interesting to see what happens the next couple of weeks, but I feel we can effectively say goodbye to on-RCL trading of XRP. Maybe I'm wrong, but all the on-ledger trade action seems like an unnecessary burden to RCL with all the bids, asks, trustlines, account settings etc. Off-RCL exchanges also provide the much needed privacy. I don't disagree that on-RCL trading is, and has always been, a cool feature though. With ILP, if there's something you use RCL for, it's settlement. Everything else increases the complexity and transaction load of RCL (the upcoming PayChan only works with XRP). [/speculation, guesses & blowing stuff out of my you-know-what]
  14. @tch0, a lot of folks living in Russia's neighbouring countries feel the way you wrote actually, so it's not necessarily obvious. Fantastic post.
