    Very interesting. He's selling unregistered securities sent directly from Ripple? 
    Perhaps there is some news we don't know about yet?

    A couple of hours ago the Tacostand transfered XRP to his GateHub account, and just minutes ago setup new trades in 250k batches for USD.

    Ramforinkas reacted to nikb in 42,000 transaction per second?   
    XRP is a digital asset: it doesn't handle transactions. You must be thinking of the XRP Ledger. In benchmarks conducted by Ripple (see here for details), the test network sustained more 1,500 transactions per second for a period of 20 minutes. But note that that number is the result of a synthetic benchmark. The "main" live network, has never sustained such a large throughput of transactions and its ability to do so is dependent on a number of factors, including but not limited to the number of servers on the network, the performance of those servers, the network's topology (how the servers are interconnected).
    As for 42,000 transactions per second: the XRP Ledger cannot sustain that number. Assuming a single transaction is around 1000 bytes (to keep the numbers nice and round) then to merely transfer 42,000 transactions per second from one server to another would require upwards of 300 Mbps of bandwidth. And that's just to transfer from one server to another; consider that hubs often have several hundred peers. Beyond bandwidth, there are other factors to also consider, including the amount of time needed to execute transactions (keeping in mind that each transaction will execute at least twice), run the consensus process, etc.
    The reference to VISA-like throughput references the use of payment channels, which can be used to decouple payment from settlement. The idea is that if a large number of small payments are needed, a payment channel can be established between the two parties (1 transaction), and then any number of payments can occur off-ledger at whatever rate the two participants can support, before one of the two parties attempts to "settle" (another transaction).
     
    Wrong question. If your servers could go that fast, could others? If they could, could wallets and exchanges keep up with the network? Etc. Beyond that, as Sukrim asked, what's the use case you have that requires such throughput?

    For reference - if major alts were to reclaim their previous highs against BTC, then at current BTC price of 41k we would be looking at:
    ETH at $6400
    LTC at $1600
    XRP at $10
    XLM at $4
    Chances are that not all will breach their previous alt/BTC ATH;  at the same time, BTC is going to run 5-10x above current levels.   Combine the two and we easily end up with prices twice as high as those listed above if the history repeats itself.

    Bitcoin keeps doing exactly what it should be doing, putting the 2017 High in the rear view until it will look no bigger than a speed bump in the distance.
    The money moving into Bitcoin this time is not the same money that moved into Bitcoin in 2017.  2017 was driven by retail investors, this rally is driven by institutions.  Institutions that bought bitcoin are not going to jump ship and dive into Doge or Dash and fuel an Alt season.  IMO Alt season will come from retail investors looking for cheap buys.  I don't expect the money entering bitcoin now to leave bitcoin any time soon.  Widespread investment adoption by regular people is coming but it won't get here until the older generations - Boomers + are able to buy bitcoin by calling their stock brokers.  That might happen this year and if it does it will continue to fuel the market.
    XRP was and is a no brainer.  Ripple will survive, Garlinghouse will survive and XRP certainly will survive.  
    Below is bitcoin on the weekly chart.  I bet before 2021 is overg XRP's weekly chart will look very similar.

    I don't think they were lying when they said they are working with regulators.  They've worked with regulators effectively in every other country. They've spent money on DC lobbyists (https://www.opensecrets.org/federal-lobbying/clients/lobbyists?cycle=2019&id=D000071522). They've met with Clayton, numerous congressman, had Bernanke speak at Swell and hired ex-regulators to board and leadership positions.  They can't go meet with banks and try to sell them on ODL without at least being able to say they are currently working with regulators.  That's the first question every financial institution will ask. 
    Not saying the SEC aren't scumbags.  Not saying that what Chris and Brad allegedly did was right.  But I do personally believe that they were actually trying to work with regulators.

    Well, I dont think anyone can say with certainty which coin is going to perform the best at this point. I haven't sold any of my XRP because I am in complete red with that.  At the same time, I keep my XRP for the long term and really don't worry much about the loss as long as it is unrealized. As you rightly said, should've sold when the SEC news came and bought back now. That would've been better. But then, that's just hindsight and there's nothing I can do about it now. So, I decide to hold it taking the risk. And that is because I can afford to take risk with my entire crypto portfolio and losing it. However, I do believe XRP will eventually succeed big time. May be at a later stage when all others are done with their bull run. That's just my hope. I am willing to sit on my XRP for the next 10 years also. 
    Now having decided that selling at this low price is not an option for me, what I did was to put in some extra money into crypto to buy some new coins. Certainly I haven't done much research on what is best as I have always been 100% on XRP right from 2017. However, from a cursory look of the charts from 2017, I feel that adding money to BTC now is a strict NO as it has already seen its next ATH this year. Then what are the other top 10-20 coins out there who are still very far from its 2017 ATH. I realized ETH, ADA, TRX, XLM are all at a much lower level and even if they reach there previous ATH, there is much to be made in terms of percentage gains. If they surpass previous ATH, take that as bonus. Always look for the potential for further percentage gains rather than absolute values rising. 
    I decided against Polkadot since it is a new coin and is totally unknown as to where will be its ATH. As for XLM, I was under the impression that since Jed is not able to sell XRP, his ability to pump XLM might be limited and it may not grow much. Also, since XLM is almost similar in tech compared to XRP, I thought its growth, as in the past, will always be tied to that of XRP. So, decided against XLM too. However, the XLM growth in past couple of days has surprised me. Anyways, long story short, I finally put 50% of my additional crypto investment into ETH, 30% to ADA and 20% TRX. The first two has already given me more than what I could ask for. TRX still hasn't moved from the time I put money. Let's see. My idea is to put any profits from this additional crypto investment back into XRP for better cost averaging when I sell them and take the principle out of crypto market. Hope this helps you a bit.

    I'm not sure I buy the argument that BG and CL "suppressed" the value of XRP. Did their sales cause XRP to crash from its ATH? No. The bull market ended and the entire crypto market turned into a bear for a couple years, and everything touched a low in March. XRP largely followed the market pattern. In this overall market context it doesn't make any sense at all to talk about BG and CL suppressing the price. XRP is still up massively from its .002 days.  
    Moreover, their sales were only a small percentage of daily volume as well as a small percentage of their overall holdings. 
    So I just don't buy the idea that they suppressed the price XRP.

    Bitcoin continues to close at All Time Highs. Looking to have our first close above $28,000.
    XRP is settling out from the Shock of the Coinbase news.  I expect the price of XRP to rise from here as the sellers that were shaken out are already out of the system (the sellers will probably come back at a higher price). 
    I don't think that is the case at all.  Even under a worse case scenario.  If after trial XRP is determined to be a security for Ripple's funding purposes, the remedy would probably be to fine Ripple and possibly effect the escrow - it wouldn't be the end of XRP.  Also the SEC's jurisdiction is limited to the US.  It's a big world and XRP does not need the US. The danger of this lawsuit is completely overestimated in my opinion.
