  5. I just found this new presentation. @pedrorechez Congratulations for the wonderful work you are doing. I'm curious to know if PathShuffle could become a real competitor of Monero and Zcash in terms of privacy, and in which aspects it is better or worse if so. Could you explain, please? https://petsymposium.org/2017/slides/pets/Moreno-SanchezRK.pdf
  6. @mDuo13 I have always imagined that the XRP Ledger validators set could eventually act as a public and distributed source of truth for ILP transactions, with all the advantages this entails over the use of "private" validators. Furthermore, in this scheme, XRP would be the native form of payment for access to this public validation service, which would give XRP a real use and would generate an organic demand, beyond the purely speculative demand. Could you clarify if this possibility is real, or am I totally wrong about this kind of use for XRP Ledger?
  7. According to this new presentation from SBI Holdings, several highly relevant companies will participate in a training program on blockchain technology and crypto-currencies (XRP explicitly mentioned). If the Google translation is correct, the slide refers to Microsoft and Oracle among several other reputed companies. Can someone who speaks Japanese make a precise translation? http://www.sbigroup.co.jp/investors/library/presentation/pdf/presen170921.pdf#page=32
  8. 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/

  10. 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.
  11. 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.

  13. 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
  14. It means that the data for that last period are not complete yet. I guess they will be updated soon.
  15. XRP holders are already getting an interest with each transaction on the ledger. https://ripple.com/build/transaction-cost/
