  1. Amazing! He’s rich AND omniscient. Somehow he knows everyone’s net worth. Off to my “ignore” bin you go, Mum’s Wittle Boy.
  2. I'll just leave this here... Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

    Doh! Cool, thanks for explaining.

    @Movere- Regarding the Reddit comments on the news feed, I get interested and want to go to that part of the Reddit discussion. Can you change it so that clicking on the comment takes me there? If not, no problem- this is a great site! Happy New Year everyone.
  5. Your credit card issuer is the one classifying the purchase as a cash advance. The exchanges don’t have anything to do with that part. Your CC issuer will unfortunately do the same thing with any other exchange, if they realize you’re buying crypto. Their excuse is that people are more likely to not pay these types of purchases back- thus the higher interest rate. B@stards...
  6. LOL. Naw, everything's dropping. Sometimes I think all these institutional investors know about is Sh1tcoin and its dysfunctional offspring. If so, I can understand why they haven't taken the plunge yet.
  7. Cardano continues to do their thing- quietly flying under the radar. The media doesn't talk about them very often. ADA's at .04 cents so you can buy a lot right now. If they succeed, that could be a nice profit.
  8. Not a response to any post in particular but to the general pessimism: So, since XRP is a smoking ruin, who exactly is lighting it up right now? Not this week- consistently over the past few months. Hook me up because I thought it was the entire market that has been sucking for the entire year. What crypto has a better shot? Not many. There are a few good ones I’m invested in but again, they’re stuck in the same sucky market conditions as XRP. Don’t hate the player- hate the game, yo.
  9. Ripple used to be the opposite: giving regular updates on what F.I.s were doing trials and adoptions. People complained about that, including people here. Eventually they decided to stop doing it, put their heads down, and be quiet. I agree with them because every statement they put out and anything JK or BG said was endlessly dissected, blown out of proportion, or misunderstood. Plus, their clients may want that info to remain confidential.
  10. <Check current market prices, weep softly to myself, get back in bed.> Well, if this isn't true, there must be good news of some sort coming today.
  11. Yep. Apes don’t have tails. Highly entertaining thread nonetheless.
  12. Coindesk article tomorrow: XRP Too Decentralized? Big Banks Nervous.
  13. I'm holding a good bit of KIN too. It's a really good use case, like you said. It's either going to be a huge success (in which case a lot of people are going to be very wealthy) or it's going to totally flop. No in between. Just my opinion of course.
  14. Oh don't worry. I'm following it. It's fascinating to watch.
  15. While the Bitcoin holy wars go on, the adults in the room quietly go about their business: signing new partnerships, working with the SEC and other government bodies, and planning crypto world domination.
  16. We are the only top ten coin in the green for the past 24 hours according to Livecoinwatch right now. That by itself means nothing but it's becoming a pattern. XRP seems like it's off doing its own thing more and more. If the market ever improves, that could be interesting to watch. Edit: As I type this, of course XLM magically follows XRP into the green at almost exactly 50% of XRP's value. Something's fishy with this Stellar ****.
  17. This crash isn’t surprising. Whales need Black Friday cash money too. It can take several days to cash out and have the money deposited in your account. This was done out of an abundance of caution- get it done so you don’t have to worry about it. Plus, some businesses start holiday sales super early.
  18. I can almost picture you giggling to yourself as you typed this.
  19. Right. Credit unions are NCUA insured and regulated. They're allowed to be non-profit organizations because their fields of membership are relatively small (must live, work, or worship within such and such county, for example). The only reason Catalyst Corporate CU is big is because its members are not people, but credit unions (if that makes sense). In other words, it provides services to the smaller credit unions who otherwise wouldn't be big enough to offer them on their own.
  20. I **** you not, guys, on my bucketlist before I die- I want to “unmask” a bot on here and mess with it. Let me know if you find one. Fascinating...
  21. I think this is a good idea but wouldn’t use it...yet. I can’t find it right now but I think the LTV was like 30-40%. I get a credit line of $4000 secured by my $10,000 in XRP. If I can’t pay back the amount owed (lost my job for example), bye bye to all of my money. And any dispute goes to arbitration. I would wait a little bit for the market to mature and the LTV to become less strict before using this. Seems legit and ultimately good for the cryptosphere though.
  22. China changes their damn minds more often than my wife does.
  23. It’s pretty well known that Brian Armstrong despises Ripple because of a nasty argument he had with one of the founders a while back. What I don’t remember is what it was about. I’ve gone back and forth on whether this is at least a contributing factor or not. I think I’ve come to the conclusion finally that it is. So far, he’s gotten away with it because 1) his company is doing well, 2) he’s made a ton of money, and 3) he doesn’t have to truly answer to anyone yet. I won’t go into why he won’t be able to afford to continue this. Most of us agree on why. My point is, we are not always rational. That’s not news to anyone but just a reminder that even otherwise extremely successful people mess this up in key situations. Maybe that’s what’s happened here. Armstrong made a bad move based on emotions and now it’s hard to find a way to list XRP and save face. The argument he makes about only listing assets that meet the “exacting” standards of Coinbase’s digital asset framework test (DAFT) are silly. Anyways, maybe the reason for all of this drama boils down to emotion. It wouldn’t be the first time this happened in business decisions. Just my opinion. @Hodor wrote a letter to Armstrong almost a year and a half ago, right after Litecoin was added. I accidentally came upon it and think it’s good. https://xrphodor.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/open-letter-to-brian-armstrong/
