    So am I but not because of this guy!!!I I Really don't like this guys videos, he makes himself sound less credible by shouting all the time. He delivers his content in such away that sounds something like a cross between the ramblings of a crazy street preacher and a machine gun going off. Very hard to listen to and take seriously.

    keybordem got a reaction from Jugular in Crypto Pioneer David Chaum Says He’s Built a Better Bitcoin   
    It can be better than bitcoin, but the bar is really current legacy fiat and it's rails. XRP works because it's all about connecting the legacy systems and keeping the governments and banks in "control". Again no world powers that be will allow it to thrive and they control all of the on and off ramps in the global financial system. The fed will never allow a bitcoin type product to compete with sovereign currency as it undermines state security. XRP solves speed and Nostro/Vostro liquidity, its not just a faster bitcoin. It's essentially all types of value at once everywhere in its network. 
    Looks like a snake oil salesman anyways with the next latest and greatest fix all formula only he has.

    They’re all going to use xrapid, how does this keep getting said with no pushback?
    There’s literally zero negative and all the positive to using xrapid. They’ll be handing themselves trillions of dollars out of Nostro for nothing. It’s going to take NO extra work on the FIs side. They will all use it. All of them.

    keybordem reacted to stdyrm in The market potential of Coil is bigger than you think   
    I love the idea of Coil, but I agree it's hard to see the 'real' benefit right now … here are some thoughts so far. Bear with me, lots of this is speculation but I'm trying to piece together the future of Coil. So feel free to disagree or raise concerns. Anyway, here's a good read if you haven't read it before: https://medium.com/coil/coil-building-a-new-business-model-for-the-web-d33124358b6
    I think Coil in a nutshell aims to reduce dependence on ad-based income and reduce the friction of paying small amounts for products/subscriptions. I don't know if it will be Coil, but Coil is the launching point for what I think is a big piece of decentralizing the Internet - replacing many of the centralized platform subscriptions with direct micropayments to content creators.
    Incentivize good content creation because Coil is based on time, it reduces clickbait, etc. and rewards content creators who have engaged audiences Create more 'free' content - we're still paying, but not necessarily directly Reduces the pressure on a creator to have to 'sell' something. Instead of forcing someone to subscribe or whip out their credit card to pay $1 for something or fill their website with ads, they can focus solely on creating a great product with engaged users, not tricking people into getting to their site and leaving or clicking on a worthless ad for fractions of a cent. This also incentivizes independent creators to create more content, knowing that it is automatically monetized.  With less incentive to charge customers directly, content creators/providers will hopefully start to free up more premium content or get paid adhoc via micropayments with very little barrier for the user (ie. subscribing or using a credit card, etc) Decrease the amount of subscriptions and decentralize the Internet There are huge barriers preventing potential customers from subscribing for any paid content. There's just too much out there, I don't want to enter credit card info, I just need this one app or article, etc. Coil is creating a universal subscription, in which we pay $5 (and I could see this increasing as our need for other subscriptions decreases) for good content over many different sites Once content creators start to implement Coil more and more, paid subscriptions will decrease. If we decrease the amount of subscriptions and replace it with a universal subscription, consumers aren't really spending more money Any centralized platform middleman will be vulnerable. For example, Netflix -- now, there'd be too much friction subscribing to every studio and using streaming services from each one. ILP micropayments helps solve this issue. We just pay one subscription, and movie makers are paid directly. Also, we won't need to worry about whatever Netflix has available. EDIT:
    https://dailyhodl.com/2018/09/18/you-can-now-accept-xrp-on-youtube-and-twitch/
    Now that Coil is integrated into YouTube and Twitch, Coil adoption is going to blow up. Why? Content creators are influencers and they'd love to get paid more. They're going to jump on this quick AND promote it like crazy … it might take some time because users will need to buy in and start paying Coil subscriptions, but I think mass adoption of Coil is going to come faster than we think.

    It would require some insights in their numbers, but I tend to think Netflix would not be waiting in line to implement Coil. They have a profitable business model, and changing that could result in heavy users paying more (which those will not like) yet revenues from subscribers who do not watch much but pay anyway would be cut off. This could result in troubled waters.
    I do think Youtube could work big time as very few at this moment would be up a paid subscription (as it has always been free) yet their add model is superannoying. I would see a major win win there, micropayments would be very acceptable.
    Then again, I’m very far of being CFO of Netflix or Google so what do I know ?.

    Swift wouldn't buy anything it's a collective essentially. Banks use the the Swift network members as a service and can use a Ripple product if they so desire. There's no exclusive clause to either service so smart banks would see both for their strengths and weaknesses and employ them in a manner that is optimal. Neither one is good enough for all transactions. GPI is fine for large USD, Euro, ect for most western business needs, But struggles with smaller emerging market currencies and low value high volume that XRP is ment to improve. 
    Ripple has said as much there's room for both in the marketplace. It's wrong to think only one will win. XRP could in the long run with liquidity but Swift has a the established network that can still charge fees regardless what it actually costs them. No ones sending multi millions or billions via western unions and money grams. For the security and insurance dealing with banks offers customers will still pay the fees because a customer is buying trust and the bank pockets on lowering operating costs.
