    XRPwinning reacted to Seoulite in Right now is absolutely the worst time to sell...   
    I don't get the aggressive tone. I didn't tell him what to do with his money. Did you read our exchange? He said some people say 1.75 or whatever was the bottom, and I'm saying that was wrong. We are back at pre-bullrun levels, that's why I'm saying its the bottom. We are not in the middle of no man's land. We are at the bottom. Look at XRPBTC. It's at the bottom. You can see that right?
    I am not scared at all. I haven't invested more money than I can lose if we go to zero, and I am actually buying more right here. 
    I'm not showing off. I'm trying to tell people not to sell at the bottom.

    Alt season is coming. All of the BTC cross charts are near the bottom. The whales don't just stick with BTC because they are maximalists or something. They are looking for profit. The next things to buy at the bottom and pump are the alts. 
    I also bought at 30. Ive bought again down here. Keep holding and all of them will be in the green.

    Sub .30$ price action caught me by surprise as well. It's disappointing to see that XRP is still completely at the mercy of BTC. As a result of this, we are almost back at pre bull run prices, which I find absolutely mind boggling given the progress that has been made over the course of the last 1.75 year.

    Xrapid was first used less than 1 year ago. I never get how people assume the first time xrp is used for utility it will some how significantly increase the xrp price. This is where patience is key. It’s pretty incredible to me that xrp is already in use by a major remittance company, real utility. And as liquidity and use increase and investors are made aware of the opportunity I feel there is a great chance for fomo to take xrp many many times it’s current value.

    XRPwinning reacted to 2ndtimearound in Nobody cares about XRP - until they do   
    Early December 2017, and the mood for XRP was as it is now....it's a bag of sh!t, Ripple have let us down, should have bought Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum (which were mooning)...and of course, the trolls were out in full, laughing at XRP holders.
    Then XRP's price shot up and within a day, a different group of people were complaining they couldn't buy XRP, couldn't get verified, didn't buy enough, missed the boat:-
    This lasted a full 3 weeks.  XRP x14'd in that time. 
    XRP was making headlines in the mainstream press (to readers who had never even heard of XRP).  
    Within a day, everything changes.  The trolls stop laughing, and people start complaining that they're either too late or didn't buy enough.
    Meanwhile, a select, tiny minority enjoy the ride. 
    Of course, there's a chance it doesn't happen again...but if it does, the same human emotions will be out on display - "how can this be?" - "why wasn't I warned?" - "my pay check isn't til Friday, I want to dump all of it into XRP, but it'll be too late by then", "I didn't buy enough", "it went up too quick". 
    Very hard to time this market.  That's why you're either months too early, or a day too late. 
    "But I'll dump all my crypto into XRP on the first day of the bull run". <<< says the guy who bought every bull trap ever. 
    You just can't time this. 
    So sit back, set an ultimate deadline where you finally give up on XRP if the price isn't moving*, set your price points for taking profits (ladder them up regularly), don't invest more than you're willing to lose (a very freeing feeling IF you truly FEEL this way), sit back and enjoy being too early. 
    *mine is end of 2020, if no major price movement by then, and fundamentals seem to have plateaued...then I'll sell up.

    I have very little information so far, so it's speculative.
    Commonwealth Bank of Australia (tied to Ripple and R3) + World Bank.
    By the way, music ?
    Also, there is a very interesting quote in bold about settlements time, all the way down this post, from a video presentation (linked further down).
    Further information dated last year:
    In this second video they do not talk about the underlying technology, so I guess that's why we haven't heard about it yet.
    They are running 2 nodes from the CBA in Sydney and 2 nodes from Washington DC. So the platform is operated by the World Bank and the CBA, using DLT.
    It is a Distributed Ledger.
    Private permissioned blockchain platform (R3?).
    The whole system is a complex structure and seems entertwined with a lot of layers in the blockchain.
    "Settlements being measured in days, T+X. The current market structure, which works beautifully,  but is inherently slow. Perhaps we don't sort of realize that the current market structure is slow because we are so used to it. But this transaction again indicated there might be the possibility of really changing settlement times.
    Andrea referred to the potential of atomic settlement of having smart contracts settle a transaction. If the issues of digital currency can be resolved, if digital currencies can be made available by central banks, then the potential for the ownership of the security to transfer simultaneously with the transfer of the digital currency, we really could see settlements taking place in T+X, where X is measured in seconds."
    Mention of the DTCC + ACCENTURE (+ R3) test from September 2018.
    Mention of the Hyper Ledger, the R3 Corda Settler and of BTC and ETH as being "the anarchists".
    Transactions in real time, in front of them.
    Atomic settlement, with smart contracts.
    "Given that the information is distributed among the nodes or the participants, would this not consume a lot of electricity ?
    Excellent question. I think everybody knows that, you know one of the drawbacks perhaps to say the Bitcoin blockchain, or perhaps that's not a drawback, but as an example, the security of the network is maintained by these very difficult to solve puzzles. Those cryptographic puzzles solving consume a lot of energy and that is the source of security on large public blockchains. Something that I think is still to be determined, I mentioned a few of the consortiums working in the finance area. I mentioned Hyperledger and R3 with their product Corda. These are 2 blockchain based technology environments with a lot of developers and developing companies associated with them. They are essentially permissioned blockchains. So you could call them hybrid. If Bitcoin is sort of the purist idea of an independent blockchain, the Corda or the Hyperledger blockchain is a permissioned hybrid which would reduce the amount of electricity and energy use to maintain consensus within those networks. Being permissioned to do different things on the environment simply changes the energy use question of the blockchain. We still have to see how applications will be developed in these environments and how large they may be."
    Expectations that the private sector will make this technology the standard and government will push its usage.

    I am now even more convinced that the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the World Bank and R3 have all been working together in this purpose: Bond transactions, namely Bond-i.

    I already spoke in some other topics about how blockchain can enhance the trade finance and the supply chain. R3 is working on various projects regarding trade finance, such as Voltron (Letters of Credit).
    In this picture, we can read that R3 is working in those sectors, among others, and that the R3 - Ripple team can become a global standard with considerable possibilities.

    We've been in a bear market for what...18 months now? Your opinion was more appropriate in the last bull run when the hubris ran wild and people didn't even THINK of selling XRP (when they damn well should have, and not even in hindsight!). Contrast that to today - there's not much bullish sentiment on these boards now at all, as is understandable.  Lots of the bulls have left, and many of the ones left behind are fairly subdued and quiet.  Strictly in terms of sound investment strategies, reigning in pessimism when the price is low - and reigning in optimism when the price is high - is way more appropriate (if you want a healthy balance).  Sell into strength, buy weakness.  All I see in recent months are a group of prolific posters who have become (or were always) very anti-XRP - at a time when the price has been in the doldrums for many months.  To me, that's not all that healthy.  It's just "piling on" and actually the smart investor buys a distressed asset with solid fundamentals...but if they listened to people here, they'd think XRP was dead in the water, purely based on price action.  Typical retailer sentiment.  Run for the hills! The price is too low!!
    The doubting voices are WAY WAY more valuable in a bull run.  The bullish sentiment on this forum in the last bull run was outrageous (I was a lurker).  It was beyond hubris.  That might sound harmless and fun, but IMO I think a lot of people didn't sell when they should have (sold into strength) because so many people were saying "it's going to $100" and so on.  Rocket gifs, people sharing plans on what they'll buy when they have a million in the bank - all that stuff - THAT is unhealthy.  I just think this forum is typical of any retail investor forum: when the times are good, optimism gets out of control....when times are bad, it's all doom and gloom.  Pretty much the retail investor playbook writ large....buying high selling low

    Q3 - Paradigm shift on the buying pressure of XRP
    Janna's interpretation
    After a very exhausting 2018 year during which the XRP/BTC chart was going in oblivion and a half of the 2019 year also quite frankly unsatisfying considering the +/- 300% surges of some of the top 15 coins, reading the Q2 2019 XRP Markets Report I personally felt a huge relief, which I have not really expressed because I am quite the private person.
    But here I will explain my reasoning and my own interpretation of what is most likely happening.
    Q2 2019 XRP Markets Report
    Before going any further, I will point out some key information which are coming straight out of the report.

    Since 2017, Ripple began providing XRP to meet FI's demand through the OTC desks in response to a lack of liquidity.
    The direct impact was obviously felt from everyone who had invested in XRP and even today. The price plummeted not only because of the BTC 85% drop, since XRP price is highly correlated to BTC, but in a more stealthy way from the strategy implemented by Ripple.
    During the past weeks, many members, myself included, were collecting information regarding the XRP exchanged on the network. Personally, I was trying to find comfort, because this is how I cope with it. Being still a fresh member, of this community and also an investor in this asset, my understanding of the network is ongoing.
    What was the most devastating to me and most likely to some other members was that the XRP exchanged and thus sold (for the most part) were a direct cause of the price being dropping / stagnant / sluggish compared to BTC slightly dropping / stagnant / increasing.
    Although, as stated in the report, this very strategy is the necessary step prior to what is coming.
    Since 2017, there is institutional demand for XRP which has heavily been sourced by the OTC desks, resulting in sale pressure (mostly observed on the XRP/BTC chart).

    I was explaining the XRP/BTC chart with mainly one factor, the performance of XRP compared to BTC throughout the whole bull phase (2015 - 2017).
    BTC bottom: 180 (January 2015) BTC peak: 19,000 (December 2017) BTC multiplier: 105  
    XRP bottom: 0.004 (December 2015) XRP peak: 3.8 (January 2018) XRP multiplier: 950 While this factor is a heavy participant in the equation of the XRP/BTC chart going downward to oblivion ever since the bull run was exhausted, throughout 2019 the trend was still ongoing while other top 15 assets were drastically increasing.
    In the report, Ripple states they decided to make a switch pulling back from providing XRP over-the-counter at scale toward the end of Q2. The key word is "decided", it does not mean they did it right away. Although, toward the end of Q2 it is true the sales had decreased, but it is only 1 of the 2 parts of the equation.
    Provide XRP to FI through the OTC desks Provide XRP to FI through the open-market (exchanges)  
    Paradigm shift
    Throughout the month I observed a new trend on the XRP/BTC chart, starting the 11th July.

    The trend is ongoing and obviously translates into XRP gaining traction over BTC, but this is pretty new and I have not all the necessary information to confirm my theory, so I cannot say with full confidence I am right. As I said earlier, this is all my own interpretation.
    I think Ripple started providing XRP to FI through the open-market this month, meaning there is now enough liquidity from the exchanges for the current institutional demand.
    This results in buying pressure which translates into the XRP price soaring.
    We do not see the effect as of yet because XRP is still heavily coupled to BTC and BTC having recently surged a lot now needs momentum to find some new grounds. So in fine, BTC price dropped from 14k to 9k, which resulted in XRP price going from 0.5 to 0.3.
    But, now I want to focus on the 07/11/2019 to 07/26/2019 time frame and compare both BTC and XRP performances over the past 2 weeks.
    07/11 Midnight UTC +2 BTC: $12,044 XRP: $0.36000  
    07/26 10 am UTC +2 BTC: $9760 XRP: $0.31300  
    BTC lost 19% of its value XRP lost 13% of its value  
    I had noticed both BTC and XRP were finally moving in tandem, but given the information provided in the Q2 report together with the very recent trend I observed, it looks like the buying pressure from the institutions could be resulting in the XRP price slightly gaining traction.
    Again, this is all too new and I cannot confirm everything. But if Ripple started not only to decrease their sales OTC and also started providing XRP to FI through the open-market, then the direct consequence would be XRP/BTC moving upward, or at the very least a relative reduction of the XRP/BTC downtrend (depending on the % of the XRP allocated to OTC and open-market).
    Obviously, if the trend for BTC was moving upward, we would notice it even better.
    I am eager to see how the trend will play out but I feel much more positive after reading the Q2 report coupled with my observations of this very recent trend.
