  1. Haha, no. I am just doing a bit of research. I'll make it public once I compile more data
  2. I will post them here since you are interested. The poll ends in 24 hours.
  3. I thought it would be interesting to check on the sentiment of the XRP community. I made a quick set of twitter polls if anyone is interested. I would appreciate a retweet to help collect as much data as possible. THANKS!
  4. I'm all down for a smash smackdown! Please take the time to reply in the survey above. We are trying to see if the date of March 15th works. So far, no one has disagreed. I speculate that Winston Salem is the most central place for most of us (except me, being near the outer banks). But you can list all of the cities you're willing to meet and the food you're willing to eat (i am in favor of some Lexington BBQ myself). I will compile the data and make a decision based on the majority of answers. The good thing is, most people in this community are very easy going. So this process won't be too difficult.
  5. I made a survey to help peg in a date. Please follow the link below: https://goo.gl/forms/lvbQCgxvuPAS4wZn1 @TyrantRex @CarolinaCrypto @Myrtlepirate @LoganClark @SgtPeppers @Cryptoman89 @BANKXRP
  6. BankXRP, an infamous twitter community member, will be in NC through March. Pretty solid member right there! Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm!
  7. Lemme know when you're in town, or if you need any help with the transition into ECU. I can answer anything about the university. I grew up in China Grove. It would be insane if I was talking to a relative of THE Julius Peppers. On other forums, I have seen people from Raleigh and Asheville. I think Winston Salem would be a fine place to meet up. That weekend works for me as well. I'm going to add a link to a straw poll for potential times and locations before the week is out. I'm waiting for others on reddit and twitter to make XRPCHAT accounts... which takes a day now for them to respond.
  8. Hey fellow zerpers! My name is Matt, I am a pre-med student at East Carolina University in Greenville NC. I saw an old thread from 2017 about fellow zerpers in Charlotte (where I grew up). Knowing that there are plenty of us in the Carolinas region, I would like to propose a meetup between now and early summer. I think it would be a great opportunity to network and share some crypto insights over some NC BBQ! I would like to start with a meetup, but dream that, eventually, we could get a Carolina Crypto Association founded to spread awareness of the use of crypto. The Association could even lobby to help our stubborn state governments pass crypto-friendly laws and such.... oh what a dream! Anyways, if anyone is interested, please reply with your first name, location of residence, and reccomended time and place to meet. I would reccomend somewhere in the Piedmont like Charlotte, Winston Salem , or Raleigh. But I'm willing to make anything work! Please share this post, let's make our first meetup #XRPCommunity worthy!
  9. Can we add another column to this list: Volume of transactions per year ? This metric will be very important because it will show how much of the transaction/ remittance market Ripple and XRP have cornered. I would be happy to start researching these numbers
  10. can someone post a synopsys after? Im in class and I cant watch it
  11. I can understand the points you make. Yes, the FI/Forex markets are their namesake. However, I think that the "plebian" market is what will help save them from "regulatory uncertainty". What I mean is, look at all the great things the XRP community is doing! The army on twitter is something to behold. More importantly, developers like Weitse Wind and Stefan Thomas are utilizing the ledger for very neat projects. There are now a few coins that are based on the XRP ledger. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. With such a great community developing separate use cases for XRP, it helps separate Ripple from being synonymous with XRP. This is much more apparent when market sentiment is good. Community development through promotional videos, tweeting, and AMA's help drive the plebian market to continue thriving. We are the saving grace for Ripple. I'm not saying that without separate developers, Ripple is synonymous with XRP.... but, I am saying that we make it a lot easier to make a clear distinction which is so crucial especially in the coming months. You are right, ripple wants to move much of their xrp our of escrow. Both to make money and to develop the ledger ecosystem. But, they can only move so much money out as long as the monthly volume remains this low. They dont want to manipulate the market and raise unnessecary FUD. In the end, I see both markets as crucial to the success of the XRP ecosystem. Without positive sentiment, we go nowhere fast. Also just my 2 XRP. This debate is fun.
  12. Of course they care about the xrp market. They are the largest owners of XRP. They want the price to go up. Brad Garlinghouse has said this multiple times. David Schwartz says that a higher price will indicate a healthier market. They are sitting on a war chest. They care immensely about its worth... but they wont manipulate the market to make income off sales. They want to grow the ecosystem organically. Why would you leave so much money off the table? Think again Plato
  13. I agree that Ripple has calculated moves on when to release xRapid. The software has been solid for the last year in the trials. They could release it now. But just as you said, they will wait for this year's bullrun. I hope that this will be the last year of a predictable cycle. I want the market to mature already. Still, Its a good thing that Ripple can take advantage of this.
  14. Well, I'm not a member of the Tin Foil Castle yet! I heard it gets crazy in there! Im morbidly curious
  15. The powers at be want for us to quit and sell. Our loss is their gain. Im not saying that Ripple is coordinating anything, they dont sell enough to manipulate the market. But the speculative banks and firms do sell enough to manipulate the market and news cycle. As soon as everyone is crying and bailing, the price will go up. Bad public sentiment is the signal for an immediate reversal. I give it 3 weeks before the start of the bull run. Ripple has kept quiet about a lot of partnerships. the past 2 weeks has been eerie because of the silence from Ripple. They have figured that good news will not change the market sentiment. The market will follow Bitcoin until a flippening happens..... because average investors do not do as much research and all they hear is "blockchain". They either go all in on bitcoin or spread a wide net. Hardly anyone outside the community believes that XRP will succeed. Whales know this and are banking on this to make profits. When the speculation sentiment changes, FOMO will kick in, then Ripple will flip the xRapid switch and ignite the afterburners. Just keep your charts on logarithmic axis... cause the straight line up will look really daunting.
