  1. I think that the Payment Request API is used to define how the payment is initiated, but if the payee and the payer don't have a common payment method, then that's where Interledger would come into play. https://www.w3.org/blog/wpwg/2017/09/14/payment-request-api-now-being-implemented-in-all-major-browsers-advances-on-the-recommendation-track/

  3. And I don't know how often you think about it, but the paradox is that this is supposed to be all about blockchain, decentralization, auditability... but yet, XRP's success is entirely dependent on secret contracts, opaque strategies and blind trust. It's not my intention to discourage, but for once let's recognize that the critics of XRP have also their reasons to be.
  4. I have always trusted and still trust Ripple's talent, but I think this situation with R3 is a direct consequence of the distribution strategy. We are now seeing consequences derived from that strategy. Only the uncertainty that this situation causes could be a major obstacle for XRP's purposes. And, unfortunately, we can not rule out that there won't be other similar cases in the future, since the details of Ripple's agreements are unknown.

  6. Yes, but it was mostly because of the 22nd and 23rd. We will see if the uptrend is maintained now. https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today 1-m&q=ripple xrp
  7. It means that the data for that last period are not complete yet. I guess they will be updated soon.
  8. XRP holders are already getting an interest with each transaction on the ledger. https://ripple.com/build/transaction-cost/
  9. We know that interest over time and price are directly related. If this pattern continues, the volume of searches on Google is indicating a possible price increase up to 0.60 or 0.65. Do you think both graphics will remain together this time? https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/markets/XRP/USD:rvYAfWj5gh67oV6fW32ZzP3Aw4Eubs59B?interval=1d&range=1y&type=line https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=ripple xrp
  10. Are the colors just a coincidence?
  11. This document might give you the answer: https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/in/Documents/financial-services/in-fs-fintech-india-ready-for-breakout-noexp.pdf
  12. It's hard to tell whether the price goes up in relation to the volume of searches or vice versa, but perhaps Google Trends is warning us again of upcoming moves: https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=ripple xrp
  13. Over time, several references to the organic demand for XRP have been made in this forum. To be honest, it has always been difficult for me to understand what we actually mean by organic demand and what exactly is going to generate it. I mean, some digital assets like ETH or Siacoin have a clear purpose in the network to which they belong: ETH is the fuel to operate distributed applications, and Siacoin is the currency needed to pay for storage space. However, other digital assets such as BTC or XRP lack such a specific purpose in the network in which they operate that can generate an organic and sustainable demand over time, or at least that is how I see it. I know that XRP is supposed to act as a bridging currency, but my question is: leaving aside the purely speculative demand (people buying XRP simply because they think its price will rise in the future), what other reasons are there why people would want or need to buy XRP? If XRP were a globally accepted currency, then that might be an answer, but that is not the case... Is the value of XRP supposed to depend only on speculation? Is it not possible to give XRP another 'real' use? For example, could RCL act as a global validator for ILP (a source of truth) which services would be paid in XRP? Maybe this does not make any sense, but I'm just guessing... If its value is always going to depend only on speculation, then I understand that XRP demand will decline as the number of new buyers declines too. What do you think about all this? I look forward to hearing your vision on the matter.
  14. Tested RTXP vs SMS. Impressed.

    Are you sure that it is RTXP and not ILP? I would say that Ripple has barely made reference to RTXP since the turning to ILP, almost two years ago, so that's why I am surprised.
