My GRANDMOM took up Bitcoin yesterday ? She was like, so it didn't really pay off. This investment of yours ? I explained her that my money is on Ripple and that I'm planning to retire in next 5 years. I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm mentally unbalanced ?
I have been lurking since Christmas Eve, which in crypto years seems like a lot longer. I figured I would finally join in the party and say hello to fellow HODLers. I first noticed XRP when it was around $0.18 and by the time I could figure out how to buy, it had shot up to $0.98. I kept buying on the way up and have been buying over the last several weeks, so my DCA is probably just under $2, which definitely puts me in the red. However, even though I missed out on the 36,000% party, I truly believe that the best is yet to come. This forum has taught me so much and I continue to read it incessantly. It has become my mistress that I just cannot leave alone. Along the way I have gotten to know some pretty interesting characters. I cannot even got to a country market without seeing a bull up front, decorative chickens inside, pickles for sale and antlers on the wall, without thinking about this thread.
I want to thank of your for your contributions, the knowledge it has given me, the bullish and bearish predictions, the funny banter and even the occasional spats. We all come from different walks of life and while there are those I don't imagine I would agree with politically, we are united by the common goal and wish for XRP to achieve the success it is capable of. I forever missed out on posting in the original Zerpening, even though I read it from beginning to end, so I decided to put some words in this one because we will look back on this history one day and shake our heads at XRP being available for less than a dollar.
Thanks again and HODL on!
First day of working after my holiday and directly confronted with XRP problems again. Life is hard. Lol.
I have some doubts about the rise today , it seemed to me as an artifical attempt ( by whales) to set things in motion on basis of the coinbase rumors. I honestly don’t believe there was a mass of people buying XRP suddenly at the same time. After the Coinbase tweet the manipulators let it go, price dips again. The rise was slow anyway compared to the one in december, maybe not enough buyers were hooked after all.
It intrigues me why Coinbase tweeted the statement. Animosity? Cover their *ss?
Its still possible they announce the XRP listing tomorrow, but I doubt it.
XRP will have his rise(s) this year, either manipulated or on real big news or most likely both.
$ 20- $ 40 june
$ 40- $ 100 december
Some call me over-optimistic
Monday: Coinbase publicly announces no intentions to add support to new coins.
Tuesday: Coinbase COO and Ripple CEO announce Coinbase to utilize xRapid.
Wednesday: $10 party scheduled at the Zerpening.
