  1. Good to see you back @Chewiecoin... I remember you were the first to post when I was a "New Member" back last year... I too have ignored the delusional man who sails the XRPChat Sea with his conflicting views... Oh the irony!! I completely agree with your opening post... All of the events (past, present and future) will be catalysts for Price Action for XRP. Maybe not as soon as we hoped, but it is inevitable that such media attention alone will increase the speculation and therefore the FOMO for new/existing investors in the CryptoSphere. A couple of things you didn't mention... - The Big "C"... I do think a listing for XRP will be inevitable at some point this year (the very Fact Coinbase are chasing their own regulation at the same time the CryptoSphere is under the microscope coupled with their recruitment drive last year) will drive some positive sentiment for Ripple and its Tech and thus increase the price (speculation or otherwise) - BTC Crossing $10K - I think in the near term this will be a catalyst for the MSM to re-ignite their Crypto Airtime and cover off the "Potential" of Bitcoin (and thereby [annoyingly] all other Cryptocurrencies) which will drive further speculation to other Coins Like (most) people here, I have believed in the fundamentals of Ripple as a company way before I believed in the potential uptake for XRP as a business tool. Recent partnerships from Western Union, MoneyGram etc... Have only further cemented my thought that utilisation of Ripple products IS changing the way we transfer money right now. Another interesting utilisation (from the UK) is the Pre-Payment fuel fiasco which is coming out from ASDA where Customers are having their cards Pre-Authorised for £99 before filling up their cars (regardless of whether they are putting £5 or £99 in their tank)... With the ILP and Blockchain, such authorisations wouldn't be required...

    Is it possible that you are simply trying to provoke a reaction from people on this forum? Or are you attempting to provoke debate? Because unfortunately, the patronising fashion in which you speak to people would suggest the latter. Now if this is your modus operandi, then please be honest with your fellow zerpers. However if you are genuinely trying to initiate debate, conversation and an alternative perspective; it would be fantastic if you could provide some evidence based arguments with which to support your point of view...... Just a thought eh?
  3. What's funny is you know Mr Marbles will still have some XRP so despite his down talk, he is invested as equally as we all are. Difference is he has already cashed out (too early in my opinion) the majority of his holdings... Hate to say we told you so!

    Brilliant. IS @Captain_Marbles not the individual who 'predicts' XRP to never reach similar heights as were seen during the Dec/Jan run? Oh the Irony..... 😂

    BTC supply vs Xrp supply

    I've been reading through this whole thread and it's a fascinating read... @Leprecoin - I completely agree with you. In Layman's terms working from the bottom up (as you rightly point out we have to) if Drops/Satoshi were physical currency akin to FIAT... We take all the 'Drops' of zerps and tip them out on a table... We take all the 'Satoshis' of Bitcoin and tip them out on a table... We then have 47.169x more 'Satoshis' than we do Bitcoin... If (one day) Ripple give an arbitrary name to half an XRP and the BTC community did the equivalent with half a Bitcoin, the equivalent values would remain the same. I agree with the point made by @AZerper - Had it not been for the divisibility of BTC throughout it's growth of 2017, the value would have been exponentially higher. Based on utility/security/speed/eco credibility, XRP has far more than 47.169x the credentials than that of bitcoin and I imagine at some point (at least 10 years) we will see parity with BTC pricing. Just my 0.000024 Drops worth

    Will Interledger Be the New World Bank?

    So much of this article relates to BearableGuy123's Cartoon he posted... Lets hope it comes to fruition!

    Crypto Bank FUD

    Either that or the fact we are about 2 years ahead of the competition... The difference is we have opened the door to the banking world so for competitors it is easy to come along and offer an alternative. With that being said I would imagine any pilot with another Cryptocurrency would no doubt have its hurdles!

    Crypto Bank FUD

    Indeed... What I don't understand though is why the FUD from the BTC Fanboys is never targeted at any of the other Cryptocurrencies who are buddying up with the banks?! Probably because we're the trailblazers...

    Crypto Bank FUD

    As a long time follower of this forum I have read my fair share of FUD; whether it be from fanboys or ignorants the sentiment usually comes right down to "The banks don't need XRP" , "Bankers S**tcoin" and "It's not a 'true' Cyrptocurrency" Now some of the notions I can agree with in part (xCurrent can operate without XRP, Ripple as a business is targeted at the Banking sector so perhaps it is a "bankers" coin and as has recently been addressed, XRP is viewed in many fashions but probably as a Cryptocurrency the least. With this in mind, is anyone else finding it somewhat ironic at the number of stories arising about other so called "Cryptocurrencies" targeting the banking sector and somehow successfully avoiding the FUD? Whilst us Ripplers are still being targeted... Whether the rest of the market is finally realising the error of their neurotic ways ("Bring down the system") or are simply trying to emulate Ripple's Roadmap it is now even more clear to me and other Holders that we made the right choice... #XRPtheStandard

    Because (if you believe the conspiracy theorists) in BearableGuy's twitter he has the same image flipped round (giving the impression the Bear is pointing to his 9th tooth)

  13. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3340073-mastercard-keeps-options-open-cryptos?ifp=0 Looks like Mastercard are keeping their options open on Cryptocurrencies but will only bet involved with one which is utilised by a Central Bank... I wonder if Ripple will be a part of this...
  14. Following the Pilot with Ripple, I would not be surprised to see the BoE adopting XCurrent (and eventually XRapid) for Cross Border transactions...

    Brad Garlinghouse - BBC World News

    This proves that dropping advertising from Facebook and Google will NOT hurt XRP in anyway... Ripple haven't used any ATL marketing and don't need to... The Press Releases and good news is all the marketing they need... XRP as a token speaks for itself! #XRPtheStandard
