    Riseup got a reaction from K41105 in I exchanged majority of my XRP for BTC   
    On, or around april 28 2019 (3-4 months ago) I made decision to exchange majority of altcoins for BTC
    The largest part of my altcoin was XRP. I exchanged 80% of XRP for BTC
    Why I did this?
    1: i saw pattern repeating for a few months, where BTC was gaining dominance, bitcoin go up, bitcoin stops and do a bit of side movement, then all alts partially follows, bitcoin drops a bit, altcoins go up a bit partially (not all), bitcoin then falls a lot, altcoins follows a lot more. As result btc got to over 5k$ at that time, while xrp got to nowhere.
    2: Tip of ice for me was eye opener when some dude from Ripple (everyone knows who i am talking about) sold a lot of his XRP-s and when I mentioned this here I got messages like "you should not speak about that here, thats Joel Katz private thing". I found that alarming, not the fact he was selling, but def reaction of this community, like please noone speak about that. Someone might mention as example Bezos selling his share in Amazon, amazon is doing awesome, but i doubt it cant go up 100% in 2 years and Bezos invested money somewhere where he think he will get more in %. Now imagine people would be prohibited speaking about Bezos selling his stake in Amazon.
    3: I dont thing selling (on top selling under price) is good thing, def will say it good on long term to bring adoption in..BS.
    4: Ripple si doing good I think, but xrp is doing capital BAD, compared to BTC, and I think that ratio will just increase in favor of BTC
    3 months passed, so far I am happy with my decision, perhaps with time all the sudden xrp will spike and i will be sorry, but every new month I am so far happy with my decisions. I see pattern more or less keeps repeating.
    I better not think what would happen with XRP if BTC now all the sudden start falling to 6, 5, 4k. Disaster for XRP if you ask me
    If i look into Sep 2019 and on, I see possibility for XRP to go below 25 cents for longer period of time, even if that does not happen I am quite sure BTC will go up a lot more then XRP, just like it keeps doing this during 2019. 
     
    Just telling what I did, time will tell if i made mistake or not.

    I know what you wanted to say, i know you pointed out everyone could 4 months later made a story what decision he made 3-4 months ago to "not make him look stupid". YOU MADE A VALID SENTENCE i dig.
    This topic is in price speculation area, so I hope I am allowed to talk openly. We have our own opinion, I think at the moment I am better like I said. I might end up losing more then you in %. I will see what happens.

    I see it completely different. For me it makes no sense to invest in anything other than xrp. When Utility starts I want to be part of that with my investment. If it never starts, the money is gone and I can handle it. Nevertheless, I respect your decision much more than those who constantly complain and still do not sell. You behaved mature and rational unlike the majority of people who are extremely annoying and getting worse and worse with time instead of investing in something else.All the best!

    Riseup reacted to Julian_Williams in This Is Crypto   
    Of course I cannot speak for Hodor.
    To my mind David Schwartz selling a percentage of his holding for personal financial reasons has no place for discussion on an XRPchat forums.  He has a private life and is widely respected for his reputation of being open and honest. It was an indulgence to question that he sold some XRP and and wrong to insinuate he was panic selling on inside information.  The thread should have been closed at once because his personal financial affairs are not our business to discuss.  Would you be OK with your bank discussing transactions on your account on an open forum?
    If he had sold a huge trend busting sum of say 200 million XRP all at once and closed down his XRP position completely,  that might have been relevant, but that is not what he did.
  16. Thanks
    Riseup reacted to iLeeT in This Is Crypto   
    No place, how so? It's an important event for anyone that is interested in his investment in XRP. David is a CTO of the company that holds the majority of the supply - I don't care that much that he sold - it's his stash after all, the more important question is - why? He has a lot more insider knowledge and access to NDAs than the whole XRP chat forum combined. Obviously, for some people that's not a red flag, but it's worth discussing it at the very least. 
    It's not a pleasant topic to discuss (i.e. it's not moon talk), but still.
    Btw, he can't sell 200M XRP as he doesn't have that much.

    Riseup reacted to fatlever in Prediction where XRP would be if Bitcoin go again to 20k   
    These two points.  XRP getting added to Korean exchanges is really what set Ripple to spike on a moon mission.  It was well documented that Koreans were buying BTC but younger Koreans went into a XRP frenzy buying crypto penny stocks.  This did not end well and we shouldn't expect XRP to rely on a Korean frenzy again.
    https://www.businessinsider.com/cryptocurrency-traders-in-korea-react-to-bitcoin-bloodbath-2018-1#this-user-said-that-he-wouldnt-trade-anymore-and-that-he-threw-his-laptop-after-calming-down-he-said-he-opened-it-to-discover-it-was-broken-2
    Then there is  the fact that people are not really buying into the XRP being a "bank coin" anymore.  Banks are developing their own solutions like JPM coin, tokens on the Stellar Network, big players like Goldman Sach's which owns Circle have stablecoins in the Ethereum Network, Facebook is developing it's own coin and Alibaba is doing something similar.  Also despite all of Brad Garlinghouse's prediction that major banks would use xRapid and thus XRP at the end of 2018, there is no evidence of this.  
    If you look at the entire cryptospace, Bitcoin dominance is growing.  It's now at almost 53%.  Bitcoin pumps, others pump as well, BTC dumps a little, most other alts dump a lot.  There are a handful of coins people believe in or are so new people haven't become jaded on yet that outperform BTC.  
    I think it's going to become harder and harder for Ripple to rely purely on marketing and BTC pumps to increase price.  Ripple needs to start delivering.

    I'm XRP fans, not fans of the ripple company . So I wonder can we separate the ripple company related discussion and XRP ledger related discussion ?
    There are too much discuss about ripple company,  partner with blablabla banks, so much potential etc , but that's not XRP ledger related.
    The XRP ledger related discuss should be real use case on XRP ledger, like XRPtipbot, xRapid ,  or some other company issue stable coin on XRP ledger, or expand the trade pairs on DEX of XRP ledger, even on ledger gambling. 
    We always say decentralization, but not only the XRP nodes/validators need decentralization. According to the discussions/topics now,  ripple company is the true center of XRP.
