  1. Thanks, @Vinnie . Your posts have been the most sincere, direct and enlightening thing I've seen for years in this community, and I'm starting to think that locking up the whole of XRP into a raffle smart contract with a drunken monkey as oracle can be smarter than any other decision to be made on a board of directors.
  2. According to Google Trends, interest on XRP has been increasing lately. Maybe we could see another price rise soon.
  3. I do not understand you, why would you ever get out if it gets to perform well as a value reserve in the long term?

  5. I am not referring only to this thread, but also to various comments in the forum since the announcement. On the other hand, it's fine that everyone does their own research if they want, but what I see more questionable is to create a public debate that emphasizes the link between one specific entity and its alleged Ripple accounts.
  6. It is not so much about the information being traceable on a public ledger, but about persecutory attitudes that can be disturbing at a time when ripple is still at an early stage of implementation.
  7. I really do not understand this obsession with locating the addresses. It's somewhat pathological and might do more harm than anything else. If they wanted to make it public, they would.
  8. Sure, but what I try to show is that XRP supply (in relation to its price) is not as large as it is often said. We are talking about a single bank. Imagine tens or hundreds of banks operating on the network. I think in those circumstances the price of XRP should be MUCH higher.
  9. Well, I know it sounds very optimistic, but to a certain extent mathematics does not lie. If you want to bridge... say $5M, you need to "buy" about 800M XRP (at today's price). Am I wrong? $5M / 0.0063 =~ 800M XRP
  10. And a wild calculation: if only 10% of that volume were bridged through XRP at today's price, that would require about 800M XRP a day.
  11. A clear attempt to further damage XRP's image. Shameful.
  12. That's it! MUDA
  13. I admit that I myself have reacted somewhat frivolously to the report publication, but it was because of the disappointment of the moment. Many of the participants in the forum have been following the evolution of Ripple and XRP since its inception, and perhaps time has been undermining the initial expectations, which were probably too high. Beyond empty, disproportionate and also unfair criticisms, my interpretation is that what transcends outside door is mostly uncertainty, inconcretion, indefinite time frames and endless waiting. Anyway, I have no doubt that we are here because we truly believe XRP have a chance to disrupt banking industry. Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond.
  14. I assure you that I was looking for the link to the full report when I first read it.
