  1. Anyone wanna start a $h1t-coin of the day thread on the alt-coin forum?
  2. Actually I was referring to how there is no wiggle room when it comes to executing smart-contracts in a blockchain.You do realize I haven't broken any XRP Chat rules, do you understand what 'anything' means? Also to respond to your previous post, changing a few words around is not 're-arranging the forum structure', it literally takes 2 minutes and it will avoid ambiguity in the future. I'll take my jokes elsewhere since you're too sensitive.
  3. No I want them to have clear and concise rules. This is talking about blockchain right? You do understand that blockchains are all about rules and transparency because computers have to abide by logic, right? There is no wiggle-room when it comes to million dollar transactions. I want to know exactly what's going on. Basically what you're saying is that we should not follow rules we set in place and cross-logic? See how far that gets you in any computer-related field.
  4. So I posted an april fools joke about JPM jumping on train with XRP, and I posted it in the XRP forums because it was specifically about XRP. The reason I posted it here and not the off-topic forum was because in off-topic it says to talk about things specifically NOT about XRP. So I posted it in the forum that is supposed to be talking about XRP. Last year it was fine to do that and nobody cared. This year some people seem extra sensitive to this content, specifically because it's at a perfect time in the market and things are rising and news like that can spread like wild-fire, even if it's 'troll' news. Well today is april fools and everyone is joking on the internet so grow a pair and learn to decipher what makes good information and what isn't and don't believe everything you read on this forum. I propose you change your forum descriptions because the article was about XRP wether you like it or not, so it's technically within the forums guidelines. Maybe create 2 subforums so that you can have the people that only want to hear XRP praise and then you can have a 'negative' XRP forunm and you can read all the bad things about it, or troll articles. Can I ask why there is a thread about XRP in the forum that says specifically to NOT talk about XRP?

  6. Anyone feel sore this morning?
  7. Most of the time I see the same forum avatars making quality posts so I spread some RPP to show them I like what they said and to keep posting good material. On any forum there's always those people that everyone likes bc of the way they form their thoughts and articulate it. Over time people recognize them more often since they are able to 'trust' their posts.. Some people take it more seriously, some people post infrequently and never really obtain much RPP, even though they might have good ideas. I think that people are more likely to give someone RPP if they recognize them as someone who provides value to the community on a consistent basis compared to an account that posts once a week. Pretty much if you have a recognizable avatar and are a regular that posts decent content, you'll obtain more RPP. None-the-less it's just like Karma and only here to inflate our e-peens
  8. I think competition is healthy in any industry. XLM and XRP will keep each other in check and make sure one doesn't get too 'lazy' and stops innovating. I hold both XLM and XRP and I hope both of them do well. I think we are at a tipping point now that regulations are starting to ramp up and governments and businesses are starting to put plans in for adoption. XRP might be the standard for certain platforms, and XLM might be the standard on another. At the end of the day I can always convert XLM to XRP or XRP to XLM using Bitcoin or ETH. I think if you're afraid of XLM you're too far invested in one single aspect of crypto and you should diversify more, but it's your money not mine so do what you think is best
  9. Imagine if you had crypto-game modes on something like Fortnite where it costs 50 cents to join a game, but the winner takes all the money, or maybe distribute it to the top 3 players (obviously there would be the ability to define custom rule-sets, etc.). You could potentially make $49.50 on a 100 player game, which would bring a new way to game to the industry and evolve it into the 21st century. Make these game modes 18+ and have someway to validate this, but obviously there will still be kids who steal their mums credit card and lose thousands bc they are terrible, such is life. This to me is like those crappy crypto gambling platforms but on steroids and the fact you get to use your skill versus other players instead of relying on a 'randomizing' algorithm brings a whole new dimension to gaming while giving gamers a way to make money and bringing crypto into adoption. I don't think you understand just how big the gaming industry is as a whole. If crypto was only used for gaming, it would still be huge. Tournaments could have smart-contracts to pay the winning team and you would avoid the drama of teams not getting paid, players getting screwed by their sponsors, etc. Everything will be in plain sight and nothing is hidden
  10. As long as you can access Earth's internet, yes.
  11. now everyone will flock to XRP and create another mini bear trap
  12. Lol. You only need to provide your information if you intend to withdraw to FIAT on the major exchanges. If you're worried about privacy, you need to convert it to bitcoin, go tumble it, create a new exchange account, send bitcoin, change to xrp, then send to paper wallet (preferably a brand new one). Who am I?
  13. Theoretically all it needs is enough money to swallow Bitcoin, and if it did that, then it would swallow the whole crypto market too (XRP the standard). Only reason Bitcoin is king is bc it has the most market-cap and even then it's teeny-tiny compared to any major industry. XRP would have to go against the grain and there would need to be an unexpected pump out of no-where to get people to FOMO in. Most of this market isn't "reading" graphs, it's knowing how people are affected psychologically by price changes. A sociologist would have a better understanding of bitcoin than an economist.
  14. Doesn't surprise me. Who here uses JP Morgan as a bank though? It's like another one of those cash apps, maybe it'll be able to play nicely with other coins and allow you to buy JPMorganCoin with XRP, pay their $1 transaction fee then withdraw your XRP minus 1 dollar. Really though, it's just like a USD. It's no threat to XRP bc XRP can transfer anywhere, anytime and cash out in their native currency while JP Morgan coins are destroyed when used.
  15. One benefit of using XRP versus other wallets is that the wallet costs a little bit of XRP to make, so spamming the stream site with gay **** or whatever wouldn't be incentivizing unless you were making money on it or you have money to burn. I could see there being an issue of people misrepresnting their stream or making NSFW content like child-****, so there would need to be some kind of moderation system. Maybe it would have to be community-based and if it gets so many flags then the content is looked at by a moderator and determined if it breaks the rules, though the rules would have to be clearly stated and defined so there is no 'wiggle room'. 0 tolerance for specific items that are illegal and IP ban and block the wallet from earning any additional revenue via the site. I would prefer it to be some kind of live-performance site rather than focusing strictly on 'gaming'. Maybe something where DJs could perform, or people could play their instruments for money, even talk, etc. Maybe contract with performers, clubs, concert venues, etc. to give them an option to stream and give people a way to watch at home and tip/pay, could be a good way to get additional revenue from anywhere in the world while performing to the world on an un-censored blockchain.
  16. I've currently got a lot of extra time at work and I've been reading about how much censorship is getting worse in today's world and have been thinking about blockchain alternatives to today's current media giants like Twitch and Youtube. I remember twitch first started as a simple streaming site that had an edgy new domain name with the .tv extension so why can't there be a blockchain version of twitch.tv? What would be the benefits of opening up a streaming platform using XRP as a base currency? Would we want to use XRP to only process payments/tips, and would this be better than something like Tron since XRP IS faster than Tron? I ask this because I used to be part of Steemit and there was a blockchain based streaming platform called DLive and it used STEEM as a way to pay streamers and they would keep 100% of the profits. Sadly, DLive decided to leave STEEM and create its own coin and simply used steemit to get people using their platform but it got me thinking about other blockchain based streaming options. We all know the Amazon /Twitch are catering towards the little children demographic and banning people for voicing their opinions and I really believe that people should not be able to be erased by Twitch because they have different opinions and don't cater to the forced META of ideas currencly going around. There's something like Bit.Tube, but I personally think a streaming site on XRP could be way better if it was done correctly. XRP is also a lot more pronounced than TUBE and a blockchain version of Twitch is needed atm, the censorship is only going to get worse and people's livelyhoods are ruined because they have different ideas and get their identity erased because some dude power tripping is too insecure to acknowledge that people might see the world differently than them. Yeah Tron.Bet is cool and all but I would prefer to see something that's actually usable like a streaming platform. I wonder how much it would cost to run it too, using something like Google Cloud platform to power it until there's enough money to build your own infrastructure. Payments could be processed via XRP and allow people to buy XRP with BTC/ETH/DOGE. Maybe make 5% of all donations go to funding the servers? Better than Twitch taking half. Benefits: -The streamer would be able to receive the payment instantly. No waiting 4 weeks for a check -Would promote use of the coin rather than being purely speculative -Creating a censorship resistant site is much needed in today's world -Allows users to use other forms of cryptocurrency to buy XRP. XRP is the base trading pair because it is the fastest and allows streamers to receive instant payments and people could always cash out in the Crypto of their choice. Disadvantages: It costs money to run ? ? ? Questions: -Would there be anyway for a corporation to shut down the website if they didn't like it? - ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ You could automatically send earned coins to your cold wallet and you could keep a certain percentage in your hot wallet, etc. This still needs a lot of work, but what would the benefits of using XRP as the base currency be (apart from it being the second top crypto in the world)? Any thoughts appreciated
  17. *A 30-qubit quantum computer would equal the processing power of a conventional computer that could run at 10 teraflops (trillions of floating-point operations per second). Today's typical desktop computers run at speeds measured in gigaflops (billions of floating-point operations per second).* I wonder how this would affect crypto mining
  18. Why is the coin going to fail? It's tied to Bitcoin and several other projects. If anything whales will use it to manipulate markets so i don't see how your argument is valid. Just another FUDster trying to take advantage of the market state and cause psychological panic in people's investment. In-case you haven't noticed, the whole market is down so cool your jets.
  19. I think virtual reality definitely has use-cases for crypto in the future. Real-time payments would be needed bc you would want to get the items as soon as you can, so you definitely wouldn't want to use bitcoin unless you want to wait around for an hour or two. Using crypto would be an easy way to get people to connect their real world to the virtual world since you could use your virtual world currency in the real world, and vice versa. You wouldn't want to buy in-game currency with fiat for a fee bc then you most likely wouldn't be able to withdraw that money unless they had a way to do that for each and every currency in the world.There would most likely be fees associated with converting in-game currency to 'real' currency, which can be avoided with crypto. It would be easier for all parties, though the game-developers might not make as much off transaction fees.
  20. Yeah it happened to me when I changed phones. I knew I had my passphrase stored somewhere, went digging and found it. You don't think you'll need it until you do. Always at least screen shot the passphrase and move it to an offline archive of some sort.
  21. Good. I was about to say that nobody including me was willing to do all the dirty work for the government so that they can double-dip into our profits. The least they can do is have an automated solution to make filing taxes easier so we don't have to track every time we make a few dollar profits. Still contemplating moving to another country if crypto blows up though.
  22. TRX seems like the perfect crypto for China to market and make tons of changes and profits on. They might not have the best tech, but their marketing team is on point (maybe a bit too much) but I find that Eastern markets tend to love flashy marketing like that. It's going to be a 'token of the future' sort of thing. Bitcoin is cool, but what's better than Bitcoin? A coin named Tron that sounds futuristic and has a pretty neat movie about it. I've got about 50% TRX and 50% XRP currently. I don't believe TRX will crash because it has an XRP trading pair and unless the project totally flops (it's not) it won't crash and will continue to receive gains from BTC and XRP ( honestly it seems that XRP and BTC are benefitting from TRX currently).
  23. Can I wear my guy fawks mask and use a voice changer?
