    buyripplexrp reacted to Chewiecoin in What an Incredible Year   
    What an Incredible year 2018 has been for Ripple and XRP.
    Its foolish to look at the price and complain that we have had a bad year.
    Look at the amazing partnerships that Ripple have made and look at the incredible advancements in RippleNet with the launch of xRapid, xVia, Coil etc.
    2018 will be the year that we will look back on as the year the rails were laid and the launching pad was built.
    I believe 2019 will be an amazing year. Beyond that the sky is the limit.
    Happy New Year everyone.

    buyripplexrp reacted to gamblin310 in New Court Ruling on "Securities" - A Very Good Sign for Ripple   
    Last week U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled that the SEC failed to demonstrate that BLV tokens sold by Blockvest were in fact securities, according to the Howey Test.
    Based on a landmark 1946 Supreme Court ruling, the Howey Test defines a transaction as an investment in a security if four conditions, or “prongs,” are met.
    On pages 11-12 of last week's ruling, Judge Curiel wrote (I have removed his citations for easier reading):
    This bodes well for Ripple in its securities litigation for two reasons:
    1)    Unlike Blockvest, Ripple did not sell XRP on its website. XRP is only available to the general public through independent third-party exchanges.  
    2)    The Howey Test fails to even get off the ground if Ripple never represented to investors that XRP was a security. In fact, Ripple never said that XRP is a share in the company.

    buyripplexrp reacted to KarmaCoverage in Susan Athey - one of the directors of Ripple   
    Almost all major change starts from the edges and works it's way into the center. With the middle east, asian, and south american countries creating new paths for value to flow through the global financial networks from one edge to another edge, without flowing through the USD Banking hubs, is a big deal.
    This is the kind of thing that many outgoing leaders will look back on and say, "could have never saw it coming"..  even though it all looks obvious in hindsight. (leading markets to under price the situation for a sustained duration)
    She does make a great analogy about the airport hubs. Try being a start up airline and competing with Delta in the Alanta market = yeah have fun burning up your capital and time. I can see how the USD could be the "airport" and the correspondent banks like Citi would be Delta. 
    The thing about beating very large incumbents is never ever ever "play their game", you must change the battlefield and "force them to play your game". I have seen this in the business arena a few times. In the military arena you hear people say things like "the best generals choose their battlefield", but I also think of it like that quote about... "first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you (on your battlefield), then you win". 
    With this situation the "battlefield" is global high speed, low value, cross boarder settlement.

    Lastly, a panel featuring both Ripple and SWIFT is planned for the AFP conference in Chicago.  
    In news of XRP, two new fan sites promise to add convenience for those looking for the latest statistics and performance metrics on XRP, and a new exchange is announced that ??????????? ???? ??? ?? ????? ???? ????????.  And yes, you'll want to watch their promo video.

    Alright. Not exactly millionaire status, but during the January run I reached almost 300K Euro. Given that I started accumulating XRP in August/September 2017, it was a huge amount of gains considering my background. The only mistake I made was tellling my GF about it. She is still nagging me now and then why I did not sell. The mind does salivatiously wonder sometimes about the amount of XRP I could have bought back should I have sold, but water under the bridge and all that.
    Yes, I held all my XRP and will continue to do so until certains goals have been reached.

    buyripplexrp reacted to Tinyaccount in settlement time   
    It is quite a complex topic and I understand only bits of it..,
    But I think you might be forgetting that the XRP are not going round and round through one account.  A lot of people misunderstand this bit.  
    The XRapid buys and sells are done on an open market and there are from some random to some other random.  The settlement time is irrelevant to those two random parties.  They each did one trade on different continents perhaps. 
    So the ‘velocity of money’ aspect is not directly relevant here.  It’s not a conveyor belt where the turnaround time if low might mean no need for a high price to move value.  
    Perhaps a bit of reading on Hodors blog or have a look at Fudbingo.

    Anyone can buy XRP. I don't see your point. If you have  a lot of XRP then the only way you can manipulate the price is when you want it to go down. It doesn't matter how much XRP you have you can not really manipulate the price up, unless you have like 90% and you refuse to sell. Then again if you have a lot of XRP why would you try to manipulate the price down? To get more... yes sure

    buyripplexrp reacted to Chewiecoin in What Next for XRP?   
    It’s been 10 long months in the 2018 bear market. After the amazing highs and parties of 2017 we have seen all major crypto coins and our beloved XRP digital asset retrace hard back over 90% from its beautiful highs in early January. XRP rode an amazing speculative tidal wave from $0.20 to $3.40 (Bitstamp) in December last year. That speculative tidal wave was months of built up good news which was triggered by a combination of BTC and ETH (the number 1 and 2 coins based on Market Cap) taking off and a very persistent Coinbase addition rumour. 
    Unfortunately, the bear market was always going to happen. Whilst we all wanted the 2017 fun to continue into 2018, governments and regulators around the World got scared at how fast crypto was talking off. There were no controls around it, fraudulent ICO’s were a dime a dozen, people were getting burnt.  The bulls ran out of steam and the bears came back.
    Speculative demand for an investment is a wonderful thing, especially in crypto, it can see massive gains in very short time frames. If you get in at the right time and time your sell points correctly, as we have seen historically, good money can be made. Conversely, money can be lost. We are in a high risk high reward market.
    What we all should be craving is utility demand. The golden chalice, a real use case, the business world buying and using our asset in a real world application. You know what we are very close.
    So What Now for our Beloved XRP?
    I believe sentiment in the whole crypto market is slowly turning and it’s being lead by XRP. We know xRapid is going live very soon. We know that over 100 banks have signed on to use Ripple tech. We have just seen the release of a “multi hop”feature to Ripple tech that allows Regional banks connected to Ripple tech to act as a hub for smaller banks, not yet connected or due to regulation not able to connect, to still be able to use Ripple tech.   We have BTC maximalists on social media now talking positively about XRP.  We have multiple crypto and general business news outlets talking about XRP breaking out and seeing positive gains past its ATH.
    Here’s how I see the next few months playing out into next year:
    1) XRP sentiment will continue to gain traction. More and more news outlets will report on Ripple’s and XRP’s progress in a positive light. Mainstream media will start to report the positive news rather than negative stories about XRP and the market. SWELL, Ripple’s yearly conference starts tomorrow. We may get some good news out of it, we may not. I think we will still get good a lot of good publicity from it no matter what is announced;
    2) The XRP price spikes we have been seeing recently, to me, is the start of utility demand in its embryonic form. We are seeing xRapid being tested. No, it doesn’t explain the majority of the volume as this is still speculative traders jumping on board but payment volume is getting stronger . The rails have been laid and now the trains are starting to test the track;
    3) Once xRapid is released we know of at least one Financial Institution that will be on board straight away (there will be more). Utility demand will start slowly and will build gradually next year. As @JoelKatz has stated, partner FOMO will kick in (it’s already started) and the rate of FI’s  joining RippleTech and xRapid will grow at an increasing rate. This will lead to greater volume and higher prices;
    4) We will see major adoption announcements over the next 6 months. I obviously do not know this for certain but from what  I have seen and the research I have done there is a lot of public discussion from Ripple staff and from the businesses themselves linking major companies to RippleTech such SAP, Uber, Amazon and others. Major banks like JP Morgan are in discussions with Ripple. We know Amex is partnering with Ripple and there has been a lot of speculation about Mastercard as well. All of this is still highly speculative but where I see smoke I see the potential for fire. I firmly believe major adoption news is coming;
    5) We will see more announcements involving Coil and Codius. We have already seen XRP tipping enabled on Wikipedia and YouTube. Codius server usage keeps growing. It is inevitable that more great news and use cases will stem from this; and
    6) The above factors will see speculative demand pour into the market and XRP specifically. XRP will lead or at least join in a market recovery of crypto in general. Don’t believe the naysayers that have infested social media this long bear market, the crypto market is not dead, the gains we have seen in the last few years are possible again. You just have to bet on the right horse. I saw a survey recently saying that on average only 7% of the population in major OECD countries are or have been invested in crypto. From my small group of friends and colleagues not much more than that have any idea about what crypto is either. Once the bull run starts it will, in my opinion, lead to the longest and strongest bull run we have ever seen. I say this because there are so many more exchanges available to buy crypto, there are more staff resources in the exchanges to do the KYC (know your customer) checks to let new investors in. More apps have come out making it easier to invest. There is more information available than ever on how to create a wallet and safely store your crypto. Once the mainstream population gets on board the tidal wave will be a tsunami;
    What Price Can we Expect?
    Price prediction is a mugs game and should only be done for fun. No matter what anyone tells you no one knows. We can only use the information: that is presented to us, mixed in with historical patterns and a dose of intuition to estimate what prices will be. 
    I believe that within 6 months we will see a price between $10 and $20.
    Within 1 to 2 years be my guess? I think it can go a lot higher than this, a lot higher. Just by looking at the above points we will see a much higher price. I am not going to try and predict it but my belief is very strong that we will see much higher prices. 
    XRP’s fundamentals are as strong as they have ever been and continue to get stronger. I feel that we have been incredibly fortunate to have a second opportunity to continue to buy at very cheap prices. I have been quietly accumulating during this bear market. I bought on the way up and on the way down. I will also buy on the way up again. I remain as confident in my investment as I ever have been. Stay strong people, believe, HODL.
    Please of course do you your own research. This is not investment advice. Don’t invest in an asset based on a random internet dude who likes Star Wars. Always only invest what you can afford to lose. I could of course be wrong, I know this and am ok with it. I still keep buying though because I am betting on me being right.
    Good luck to us all.

    Our conversation was about our portfolio, and quickly shifted to my heavy balance of XRP as a whole in my overall portfolio.  The co-worker insisted I was crazy (some truth might exist here) to have XRP at all.  his view was that Ethereum and Bitcoin were the best crypto investments to hold.
    I asked him simple questions, " Whats it good for?"  "Use case?"  "What real commercial business plan is being driven and promoted?" Then went on to share what Ripple is doing and where XRP fits into that plan.  Followed up by links to this forum and other reliable sources for true insight to the big picture (ripple.com, Deloitte use case, and SBI info etc). 
    He is actually considering a shift in his position.
    One investor at a time while XRP is still a basement bottom deal of a lifetime. <- my opinion not investment advice.
