    keybordem reacted to jabit in Japanese Bankers Association adopt SWIFT GPI   
    No I am not FUD. Rather it is fan of Ripple.
    But I am Rippler who is simply crisis-conscious.
    Rippler with high crisis awareness is not allowed to debate?
    If you know your enemy and know yourself, in a hundred battles you will never be defeated.

    "We Rippler" - not so sure about that
    No one is going to use only ONE solution - thats why interoperability is key - ripple built it from the ground... C'mon jabit, your are trying a bit too hard...

    Fair point. We should see a lot of banks "selecting" GPI moving forward. It is a mandate and with Xrapid not running yet what are they supposed to do, not be a bank and stop doing transactions? 
    Everyone should be very prepared for GPI to keep growing because unlike Ripple, Swift has their customers by the balls.

    I think this is a hard pill for people to swallow because it essentially removes US policies as a guiding core of world affairs and levels every state to the political will of an NGO. I really think it's hard for people to imagine that there's always a struggle between the hedgemon and everyone else wanting to knock them off the hill and take their place. 
    The US is staring down the same gun as the Soviets. Failure to innovate and being placed outside of the new global norm of economic growth will isolate and cripple you in ways a powerful military is useless to defend against. 
    The US wasn't a hedgemon until Europe and Asia essentially destroyed all their infrastructure and economic power with two world wars. It's taken the old world powers almost a hundred years to get to the point were they can challenge and take back some independent control. The Euro centric IMF and America's military rivals have a perfect technological tool here to wrestle back some control from an economic industry America rules with an iron fist. European banking built the world we know today backed by some seriously powerful legacy families that are major players still generations later.

    What is being said sound similar to what people were saying before the 2008 crash. "It can never happen." "Real estate prices can never go down." "Everyone can keep getting no doc mortgages forever, even if you can't afford it." And other equally ridiculous statements. I'm a contrarian investor so I saved my money because I did say the real estate market would crash....and it did. Then I bought as much real estate from 2009-2011 as the credit union would give me investor mortgages for...from investors who became underwater. I fixed up the properties, rented them out to good tenants, and quit my job in 2013. Financial freedom for life.
    Now, people say the USD will always be the world reserve currency, even as countries drop it. The stock market cannot go up forever. The national debt cannot go up for ever. Government social programs cannot go up forever. 
    The worlds' global financial landscape is changing and will continue to change. Where XRP and other digital assets play into that remains to be seen. But Ripple is in these IMF and other global financial organizations task forces and think tank type groups for a reason. It's not so Jose can send his paycheck to his family in Mexico. It's much larger than remittance companies.

    On the other hand, don't forget that XRP is currently valued much lower than previous months, so higher amount sold may not indicate increased interest from FIs when looked in $ value.

    keybordem got a reaction from Gepster in Are you thinking what I am thinking?   
    Perhaps, but XRP isn't really threatened by money flowing into crypto or not unless you still wanna ride the coat tails of Bitcoin and speculation. XRP value will be fueled by utility or fail. I'd be worried like you said for startups and many other coins but XRP stands out not because of some echo chamber of community hopes but because it fundamentally appears to work compared to its peers and not be an afterthought to fund an idea or scam.

Best thing that can happen is the shaky small time people get pushed out and take the jumpy feelings and emotions with them. XRP or crypto in general is never going anywhere if it's held up by beer money and guys losing there **** over losing 20bucks so they hop from coin to coin.

    Even on the low end assuming all 100B are available which they never will be 100 dollars is only 10 trillion of a cryptocurrency market that's projected to be 40+ trillion.
    XRP is already being set up to expand into the securities, commodities, and derivatives markets on top of the payments Ripple is pushing. Coupled with potential mortgage and insurance use cases and Coils goal to change the revenue model of the entire internet the sky's the limit basically if we can get out of the gate and build some liquidity. 
    That's all the logical stuff without even going into the long shots like the IMF or Fed making XRP a global reserve.

    keybordem reacted to Hodor in Fiat Money & Cryptocurrency: XRP in the Mix   
    The concepts I think are beyond a specific cryptocurrency. 
    Basically, any decentralized, no-counter-party asset could be used.   Venezuala is choosing to issue its own, which is sort of strange: 1) Is it really decentralized?  2) Is it really a no-counter-party asset?  It could be just a centralized token - aka a virtual central bank currency. 
    If so, I don't think banks, nations, or individuals will trust it.  So, hence, no liquidity and no market.  They'd need to make it redeemable in that model if they even have a small shot of it working.

    keybordem got a reaction from Hodor in Fiat Money & Cryptocurrency: XRP in the Mix   
    I believe a sanctioned state would still not have access to the world banking system even with XRP. There's a buy and sell in a XRP transaction or the XRP highway. A sanctioned state would still lack access to on and off ramps in the normal global fiat realm if their sanctioned currency was on either end of the transaction. Isn't the point of the Ripple product to allow banks to still maintain a Walled garden with KYC AML independent of the XRP transfer?
    The fiat still has to route to a real bank account in a real bank and the West is very capable of hunting and locking these down. There's a reason sanctioned countries hold physical assets like cash because they can't hold value in their borders in a native currency or an isolated account out of reach.

    If you're saying that the 300M XRP Ripple used in the accelerator program are a part of this, I don't believe that at all, Ripple wouldn't give XRP to anyone unless it was with the conditions of actually using and integrating XRP into their business, this is what business development funds are. They always come with strings attached, conditions and success criteria defined. Not a chance Ripple gave 300M XRP to anyone on the "hope" that they would use it and no guarantee they wouldn't liquidate it the next day, that would be madness. Furthermore this 300M likely will be distributed across many business development deals, all your eggs in one basket principal applies.
