  1. Maybe we should all send (very small) tips to EM, to get him intrigued...

    XRP, UK users and Uphold

    I've signed up to LBX, but can't seem to transfer Zerps from Binance, as it doesn't seem to like the wallet address. Any ideas?

    Ripple Client Event at Sibos

    No idea who the suits are, but the green things are caperberries.
  4. It's a nod to ZZ Top, where the clean-shaven one was called Frank Beard.
  5. But, but...that was three months ago!

    Foundations of Success

    Great stuff as ever. I particularly liked that quote about crypto only being 0.3% of global markets whereas the dotcom boom was a third of global GDP. Makes you realise how early we are in the game!

    Audi rips the camouflage off its E-Tron electric SUV

    Agreed. As an aside, I got picked up by a Tesla the other day (on the Chinese version of Uber). Was absolutely tremendous, everything I had expected and more. Just need the Zerps to moon now!
  8. DS in a BG123 costume hitting a big red button to start xRapid. Oh, and SWIPPLE to be announced. Not too much to ask, is it?
  9. Great blog as ever. Nicely broken down into the cross-border, domestic and derivative angles. After everything I've read today, I'm genuinely starting to believe things are about to go stratospheric!

    ACI, central banks & Ripple

    Isn't Codius meant to give unlimited scalability? I'm sure I've heard BG say they can already do 70k per second, but would expect much more when the upgrade kicks in (early 2019, wasnt it?).

    Are you thinking what I am thinking?

    I can s*** in the fountain if that would help.

    Good god, your property market is crazy. You can buy an actual castle here for around £1m! https://search.savills.com/property-detail/gbedscedt170135 Mind you, if Mark Carney has his way, we'll all be paying $40m for houses!

    Web Monetization Has Begun

    Precisely. And if websites stop allowing free usage, people will have no choice but to pay. The potential for this is huge, whether it be listening to music, watching sports/films/TV programmes/adult content, reading books/blogs etc.
  14. Looks like it. While Hyperledger appear to have taken IBM on as a partner since its inception, there's no reference to them being involved in creating it. Also, on Jed McCaleb, it looks like the official line now is that he walked away from Mt Gox in 2011, yet I'm certain I've seen emails which suggest he was involved much later than that. Trying to rewrite history, perhaps?
  15. A quick reverse Google Images search tells me that's St John's College in Cambridge. Probably in the video to highlight their overseas student money transfer use case. So no conspiracy there...
  16. I'd be careful with the SoftBank/SBI link, they split in 2006. Might still be some business between the two though.

    The coming millionaires of XRP

    You'll be a billionaire!
  18. SWIFT can go ahead and develop their own blockchain if they like. The simple fact is it's taken the some of the finest coders in the world six years to get to this point, so they'll be spending quite a while catching up while any bank with an iota of sense will be pinging cash around the world using RippleNet.

    Expectations for the AMA

    I know! These west-coast Americans need to get out of their beds earlier...

    Expectations for the AMA

    I think what's been most striking about Ripple's communications over the last few months is how well-controlled they've been. No more "two household names" type leaks. So on that basis, I expect very little new in the way of information from BG today.

    Bittrex is live

    No sign of it on LCW yet. Anyone know how often these things update?

    Bittrex is live

    Would imagine the restrictions are for retail customers due to various local laws. Banks and FIs are generally able to do whatever they like.
