    SWELL was a tour-d-force for Ripple; you won't want to miss my TL:DR breakdowns of each session in this blog. I provided my own personal take on each of the sessions, including the "800 Pound Gorilla" panel discussion at the end.
    This latest blog also covers the latest news in crypto, and Ripple & XRP as well, including what to expect from the Malta conference, and news that SmartStream piloted Ripple tech.  Coinswitch adds a custom crypto switch page for XRP fans, and Bitrue announces their new mobile application.

    RiverSong reacted to Hodor in Foundations of Success   
    XRP's value is driven by its utility.

    The UK Parliament recently released their findings about crypto via a subcommittee document; I break down their conclusions and share what I think this means for crypto and for XRP.
    PNC Bank - one of the largest US Banks - joins RippleNet.  SAP creates a POC mobile app that handles real-time Canada-to-Germany payments.  Sagar Sarbhai reveals that Ripple piloted XRP with banks *years* ago
    And in Coil news, the company reveals that it is Coil-enabling some high-profile sites right away, and WietseWind provides the first centralized listing of businesses that are Coil-enabled. 
    WietseWind also published a new blog of his own on how to ILP-enable the IOT (Internet of Things), merging the IOT with the IOV!  Is he the first to do this in the history of the world?  *Perhaps*.
    All this and more is covered in today's blog.

    RiverSong reacted to Hodor in Brad Garlinghouse Is Right: It's About the Use Case   
    The use case for XRP rests on a large business use case that provides value for all stakeholders concerned: the businesses that implement it will save 50-70% on their current ForEx channels, and customers will reap the rewards with real-time money transfers that settle in seconds instead of days.  
    In this latest blog post, I also cover some of the latest news, including Brad Garlinghouse's AMA, and David Schwartz's dramatic statements about Bitcoin and Ethereum's increasing levels of centralization.  
    Also, there's a Coil meetup, and the XRP Tip Bot just received one of two amazing upgrades.

    There's a LOT going on in crypto as we speak, and the two Congressional hearings were just a sample. I analyze the testimony provided to Congress in both of those important hearings.  
    In addition, SBI Virtual Currencies has gone live now for all Japanese users, marking an important milestone.  SBI VC will have an enormous impact on sustained volume levels for XRP.  
    Two recent conferences featured Ripple representatives, and Ripple has begun organizing for the next SWELL Conference!  
    Last but not least, I make the case that the XRP Community should make more than a token effort to visibly and materially support businesses that in turn support XRP.
    While large Silicon Valley players address the high-profile use cases for XRP, the XRP Community can make significant inroads supporting retail businesses.

    Consensus is better than Proof of Work.
    When it comes to all categories of strengths for a decentralized cryptographic network, XRP is stronger than Bitcoin in every category:  Double-spend prevention, security, censorship-resistance, dependability, scalability, and settlement speed. 
    The fact that we're even still talking about Bitcoin in 2018 is a testament to how effective protectionist market interference can be; but XRP doesn't care - it is being adopted at scale by real businesses for real global commerce.  There are a myriad of reasons for this, but in this blog, I focus in on one specific aspect of XRP: its transaction validation model and how it compares to Bitcoin.

    RiverSong reacted to Tinyaccount in Ripple CEO: Expect dozens of banks to use our cryptocurrency...CNBC   
    Having worked with software payments systems in large enterprises,  I can say that the testing would be rigorous...  and in house.  Stress testing would be done in house with dummy loads.  Nothing can really test a production system end to end until it is live though.
    So my belief based on all I've heard and seen,  and in particular, this latest revelation,  is that a bank, or some banks, have already done in house testing and then perhaps trialled a payment or three.  Then maybe ramped up a bit more for some staff test payments.  All of it below the radar.
    At some point by the sounds of it, they will have a throttled live run.  Perhaps pause and evaluate.  Then more of the same with ramping up the throttle.  So even though they might 'go live', it is unlikely that it will be at 100% of their payments volume.  The ramp up might take days,  weeks, or months...  that depends on their confidence and any teething issues.
    This news is awesome and unlike some,  I think we can absolutely take Brad at exactly his word.  I wonder where he had previously said it...  he mentioned he had....  but perhaps that was into the bathroom mirror.

    RiverSong reacted to bx549 in SHOTS FIRED!!!! TAKE COVER! GET EM BRAD!   
    The comments from the XRP skeptics are so toxic. What's the deal? I mean, I think Dentacoin is a scam but I don't waste time making comments about it. I'll tell you something: I know full well that there are no guarantees with XRP, but I have to believe that Ripple as a company wants XRP to succeed and that they are not just using it for funding. I'll tell you something else that doesn't make sense to me: I see people saying that they would invest in Ripple if they could, but they would never buy XRP. What? So they would invest in a company that they believe is lying to the public about their intentions with XRP? That doesn't make sense to me at all. I think the toxicity is just part of the new world culture. I don't like it.

    RiverSong reacted to OzAlphaWolf in Ripple insight (pun intended) on optimising xRapid for the future   
    I had my own lightbulb moment. 
    So we now know that:
    Two of the rail phases here are:
    Sending bank -> Exchange 1 Exchange 2 -> Receiving bank These are potential bottlenecks that are outside of Ripple's control unless they are replaced with xCurrent. The more exchanges that are connected via xCurrent, the faster that transactions can be made via xRapid along those corridors and also the greater the increase in both network size and value. 
    So moving forward from that,, we can make an educated guess that SBI VC will be xCurrent powered. One of the wider SBI consortium's main corridors is going to be to South Korea with the banks there, Shinhan and Woori (initially). Recently we learned that Coinone Transfer in SK is connecting to xCurrent. Put those pieces together:
    SK banks <=> Coinone <=> SBI VC <=> SBI consortium banks
    ..and we have the foundation ready for the first fully Ripple powered international corridor.
    The other two primary factors are regulations and liquidity. Japan is good to go on regs. SK may not be far behind. Liquidity is a work in progress.
    It's all coming together.
