  1. This could actually work in XRPs favor, as US court will now make the determination that XRP is in fact NOT a security.
  2. And let's remember that Gemini was conveniently co-founded by the Winklevoss twins. I mean, could this be more obvious collusion, to post FUD about how XRP tried to "pay to play" or by their way onto Coinbase and Gemini?!?! Oh and the article also conveniently stated about these "anonymous sources" who this article was written about, "Gemini and Coinbase, according to four people with direct knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be identified discussing private information." Yeah, well I have very reliable sources that would like to remain anonymous that say this is complete BS!!! https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-04-04/ripple-is-said-to-struggle-to-buy-u-s-listing-for-popular-coin
  3. I'm not sure if something big is coming because of the FUDsters, but I do see FUD everytime something is reported about XRP that the Bitcoiners don't like or feel threatened by. Such as the MoneyGram/Walmart deal (Walmart2World). I'm not saying that this will or will not use XRP, but the Bitcoiners certainly feel threatened by it. Just think about what MoneyGram said about XRP and ripped Bitcoin in their PR in January announcing the XRP pilot program. "XRP remains the most efficient digital asset for payments with transaction fees at just fractions of a penny, compared to Bitcoin fees of about $30 per transaction. Similarly, the average transaction time for XRP is 2-3 seconds with other top digital assets ranging from 15 minutes to an hour." https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ripple-and-moneygram-partner-to-modernize-payments-300581372.html
  4. https://hadeplatform.com/articles/2018/04/04/how-walmart-nyse-wmt-could-send-ripple-xrp-to-the-moon If you go to google right now and type in XRP it's the 3rd post that shows up
  5. I smell the Winklevos twins...all the FUD comes from them guys, as most of us know!!!
  6. I think this might be huge for XRP in the future... https://bit.ly/2uKu0Zx
  7. The Author is Allen Scott. Just need to read his profile and enough said... "Allen is an editor and content creator at Bitcoin.com. He has a background in journalism and economics and had his Bitcoin "Aha!" moment in 2013. He has interviewed some of the most prominent experts, entrepreneurs and thought-leaders within the concurrency space. Send your leads, tips or interview requests to: allen@bitcoin.com" He considers himself a "Bitcoin Journalist." Enuf said for anyone who has a clue! As soon as I read any articles that speaks clearly negative of XRP I go research the source...but I already know before hand that a Bitcoin antagonist has written it and I am always correct. Why is that we should ask ourselves (I ask facetiously) ?!?!?!
  8. I agree, but in my opinion, I don't think he was referring to the order each will be listed on the index when he said "IT WILL BE MARKET MARKET CAP WEIGHTED! THAT IS WHAT IS GOING TO DRIVE WHAT SHOWS UP ON THE EXCHANGE..." I think "Show up" is the key phrase. Why use "Show up" if we already know the four coins listed? Its not like they have a long list of cryptos or they are going to "exclude" any cryptos based on low cap. Maybe he mis-worded what he meant, but I am just reading into the semantics of the actual statement.
  9. Speaking on CNBC the other day the President of Coinbase said about the new index fund, “It’s a market cap weighted index fund.” He reiterated later in the broadcast that “We are committed to adding more assets to the exchange and if we add assets to the exchange it will show up in the fund. IT WILL BE MARKET MARKET CAP WEIGHTED! THAT IS WHAT IS GOING TO DRIVE WHAT SHOWS UP ON THE EXCHANGE and therefore on the index and in the fund!” He also said, “We are in fact hiring 500 additional reps this quarter…the ques are down, service levels are back where we need them to be, and as long as we don’t have some spike like we had in December we should be fine…and by the end of this quarter we will be in great shape. So reading between the lines, he is saying that service is currently up to par. So why the massive hiring? It’s safe to assume that they are adding at least one more crypto at the end of the 1st or in the beginning of the 2nd quarter. And from his own words “market-cap weighted cryptos” XRP is the obvious choice. I agree with the analysis in this thread and the video as well. He was also asked if they will “hold the actual cryptocurrencies that are on the exchange in order to reflect what’s in the fund, are you buying?” And he answered, “Yes, absolutely.” Having said that it is safe to assume that they are in the process of working out a deal with Ripple or they have already done so and are just waiting to surprise the industry with the addition. The only other alternative, going by what he said, is that they beleive that they are so powerful that they can add another coin and drive that market cap just by the listing to rival XRP's cap. Just my take, hoping I’m correct on the first part.
  10. I just signed up, waiting to be verified. It's a bit pricey, $34.50 for every $500 purchased. And appears to also be a price hit of about .01445. And they only accept credit card and cash voucher, no debit card.
  11. From what I read only credit card online or cash voucher. I am still waiting to be verified. Just signed up.
  12. Bitit Marketplace just added XRP direct buy (see article and link to site below). It's very easy to use. Very similar to Coinbase. https://www.oracletimes.com/ripple-xrp-coinbase-rival-adds-xrp-by-credit-card-150000-stores-worldwide/ It's a bit pricey, $34.50 for every $500 purchased.

  14. Exactly, I didn't understand why he said that! Seems like CB is just pro-Bitcoin and feel threatened by XRP.
  15. I don't know about any of you, but I am pretty heated that Brad got bumped from the show because Gary Cohn resigned. Horrible timing. Anyway, I would still love to know what Brad's news is? The host of Fast Money said at one point that "Brad was coming out to talk about what the next big thing for the coin is. You won't wanna miss it." Well, we missed it!!! When asked about XRP, Asiff said, "When we think about listing a token [on Coinbase] we look very hard at how open is it to market manipulation. And frankly all the noise that's out there about whatever token, pick your favorite, the more it drives volatility and looks like it's being manipulative the less likely we are going to list it any time soon." That is all he said when asked about XRP being listed, aside from a joke from Asiff about seeing Brad in the back and saying we should take a picture together, referring to the price going up if they did so (via the rumor mill).
