  1. Even selling every day it will take him years and years to sell off his entire stash. He can afford to sell at whatever price the coin currently is and still benefit massively when it goes up in value
  2. After a slow weekend (which is pretty typical), I'm used to waking up on a weekday and seeing that a few million XRP have already moved through the corridor. As of now, there has been zero ODL traffic all day, even though market makers still seem present on Bitso. Any idea what's going on? Other corridors (USD/PHP, AUD/USD, AUD/PHP) are still active according to https://utility-scan.com/#/dashboard. Is this a holiday thing? Testing / maintenance in progress?
  3. Furthermore, I don't know about other people, but today was payday for me. So not only does it make sense that today is hectic, but it's interesting that the surge of activity was from noon to one, which could indicate folks going to Moneygram during their lunch break to send money home. Will be interested to see if we get another surge of activity around the end of the work day today.
  4. It may not have changed all that much. I think a lot of people assumed, when Ripple declared the investment in Coil, that the funds would be given in some large bulk installment. It's always made more sense to me that they would release funds to Coil gradually. The escrow figures seem to support that view.
  5. As the music industry currently stands, it takes roughly 9 months from the time a song comes out before an artist starts actually seeing the revenue. Additionally, the money comes from so many different streams that they can't actually collect it all without the help of a publisher. I don't know for a fact, because of course I don't have any inside knowledge of what Scooter is up to, but if they started a streaming service that allowed artists to be paid in real time as people listened to their music, you had better believe they could get artists to sign up en masse.
  6. .4 starting price, 8 percent annual growth for 10 years get to .86. What math are you doing? If xrp achieves $5 in 10 years, that will have been an average annual increase of 28.8 percent.
  7. I would say the default assumption any time a large amount of XRP is transferred is that there are stipulations about how they can be sold. Ripple are no dummies, and we have yet to see a single example of anyone getting xrp with no strings attached.
  8. In fact it seems like that's the worst thing they could do, because the only reason to do that would be to artificially increase the price of XRP. That might work in the very very short term, in the way that stock buy backs do, but it also seems like that would feed into the narrative that XRP it's a security, which would ultimately crash the price and ruin their entire business strategy. The last thing you want as a HODLer is to have them publicly consider destroying coins.
  9. The last time Jed's stash was discussed here, the general consensus was that his wallet had stopped selling xrp. So as far as I know that's still the case. The XLM pump was quite possibly linked to the announcements around WorldWire and the number of Banks they had on board.
  10. This guy keeps his site pretty up to date. https://xrparcade.com/exchanges-2/ Oh, I don't know about finding out how much each exchange holds though
  11. They've definitely invested in other companies using XRP. Also, do we know that Ripple or Spring provided the entire 100 million? That seems unlikely given all the other investors mentioned in the article.
  12. I believe this is the link he's referring to. https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/30588-hi-im-bob/?do=findComment&comment=679595
  13. Hi Bob. Been on XRPChat for a few months now. Have no ability to run with your ideas, but I'm always trying to learn more about XRP and Ripple's longer term vision. The thread you started has been incredible to read through! And great timing, because it's been a pretty slow news week. Can't wait to hear more!
